GrandCampaign Notes

Post by Gomoto » Sat May 26, 2018 12:18 pm

I play through Eriks GrandCampaign the first time. I use difficulty 3 and take some notes in preperations for my second run.

I try to reach all secondary objectives as well and will use cheats from time to time in my first run. The second run will be without cheats.

All went well until Lodz. I should have upgraded my Pz 1 probably after the reading the mission introduction. The Poles mounted a major counter offensive there and I nearly run out of RP. I took #warbonds (+500RP) and extra turns. I nearly made it in 30 turns, in the second run with upgraded Panzers I should be fine.

Perhaps I should start my second legit run in parallel.

Only an awful draw achieved. To many enemies, got overwelmed. My feeling: on Medium Difficulty this is too tough, but I do not want to fight against 8 strength units.
