Endsieg SS Resource Points

Post by HobbesACW » Tue Jan 22, 2019 8:21 pm

Hi folks, playing through the Endsieg campaign I'm always asked at the end of each scenario if I want to transfer 100 resource points from the Wehrmacht to the SS.
Yet the SS is barley capable of deploying more than 3 or 4 units and has a huge number of resource points in reserve. I'm just wondering if I am missing something?
I now tend to use the few SS units I have as 'nearly suicide squads' bringing them out of combat with just a few points left as they are so easy to bring up to full strength again.
The SS have three units deployed in my current game and have more resource point available than the Wehrmacht who have about 20+ units in the field. Am I being an idiot?
Quite possible.

Well, Chris, I can't really comment on the "idiot" part :wink: , but otherwise I concur with the rest of the statement. The RP balance's definitely off with the WSS.

FWIW the current beta has a couple SS RP objective bonuses cut towards the late cam. Still routined players will probably have enough as there has to be some room for various players, approaches etc..

Basically you get a CP-limited force which otoh is not that much constrained by RP. Which is ok IMO, since they were given certain priorities eqp-wise from ca. midwar.

Yep. Just use the stack of resources you get to turn them in an elite force. Always newest equipment, always elite reinforcements etc.

I did that and still rather wished for a "transfer funds from Waffen-SS to the Wehrmacht" option in the later scens. :wink:

I think I heard that the last iteration will last until around early February, so a release will be later than that. But I honestly dont have the time to participate in any testing right now, so I dont know how far advanced it is.
