I am leaving out the obvious Order of Battle: Europe, since I am sure it is the next full title in the franchise, but out of what I thought would be the most obvious options for smaller DLC, what would you like to see? My top two choices are the two grand campaigns, with Japan getting a slight preference. You can vote for your two favorite options.

What is a grand campaign? Something like we have at the moment but with branching?

A bit like that, but not REALLY.
The term (I believe) refers to the Grand Campaign DLCs released for Panzer Corps - there was a LONG chain of DLCs, one for each year of the war, and in the late years, even seperate versions for the western and eastern fronts.
However, I feel the format isn't the best choice for OOB, since one of it's greatest merits is the "choice and consequence" model, where things you do in a mission can have an effect many missions down the campaign-path. The PzC DLCs had some very minor branching, but dictated the general course of the war (no matter how many flawless victories you won, everything would progress more or less historically and you'd end up fighting in the ruins of Berlin) and I'd rather see a "true" campaign first, like the classic campaign in Panzer General, where you can do well and end up invading Australia, or not so well and end up defending the shores of Japan itself.
Another thing to keep in mind is that the pacific war as depicted in OOB only started in 1942 - Pearl Harbor was December 1941. So there's not as much to cover.

UNLESS you adress the elephant in the room and add China into the mix - which would be my pick and unfortunately isn't really present in the poll options.
I want to see a Afrika Korps style full expansion adding China and a "true" Japanese campaign spanning from 1937 - 1946, with proper branching.

I voted for American and Japanese Grand Campaigns.

But maybe we get "Operations" in the Pacific in detail. With larger maps. Like those New Guinea/Solomon Island templates on Wikipedia for these historical battles.

But I must say, I wish I could have OoBPac rules for a "Soviet Order of Battle", or as monkspider already said "OoB: Europe", with more tanks and less slogging through the jungle. Who knows when or if "Soviet Corps" ever releases, the OoBPac Engine and game system are more up to date. Maybe also OoB games set in other eras or SciFi. Just have no idea how to translate the game system to the Middle Ages or Napoleonic times.

I would like to see a Japanese grand campaign including new music with classic Japenese sound. Or new music as an additional DLC. It the same as with PC: The music is good but repeats too much.

As many choices and paths as possible for both Japanese and US/Allied forces in Pacific, China and South East Asia theaters. Nothing too major, just the whole enchilada. :mrgreen:

OoB is just crying out for a big map on the eastern front where the supply system can really shine.

Voted for both a Japanese/American gran campaign. The game is out since one month or less and I really don't undestand people asking to move to another scenario front :roll: Hope devs will stay in the Pacific for an year at least. I would like to see also some mini-campaigns . :D

SE Asia covering lots of what ifs of Japanese offensive from Malaya onward through British Empire counteroffensive following Imphal/Kohima through Mandalay/Meiktila and on to Rangoon (possible Dracula) and even a return to Malaya. Including whatifs around Ironclad (Madagascar) would be neat as well.

Fun to see a 1939 Nomonhan, etc. mini-campaign. Also a full Solomons campaign on into NG.

An expanded War Plan Orange/no Washington Conference campaign. What if the Allies, especially UK had spent the money on G3s/N3s and properly defended Singapore/Malaya.

Lots of possibilities with this engine. Haven't tried the editor yet but looks promising.
