Update Error in Norway Scenario

Post by airboy » Tue Jan 09, 2018 4:28 pm

I'm replaying Blitzkreig to have my core force in the new game.

The update causes an error in the Norway scenario. If you are successful, the AI awards you a light tank unit. With the update, this AI tank award now causes you to have fewer command points for the next scenario in France.

I played Norway twice to confirm this error. The second time I left the light tank unit in the transport.

I still get the penalty for "deploying a tank unit" in Norway.

This error was not present prior to the update for the new update in Order of Battle.

I had the same bug recently- didn't deploy any tanks, but didn't complete the objective. Though I didn't realise it was working before as it was my first playthrough.

Oh, I just finished this mission and have the same issue. How much extra CP are you supposed to get? If it's not patched soon I'll just cheat it to the right amount.

I’ve recently played through Norway and Belgium, and the tank triggers worked fine with v5.2.3.
In Norway, the scenario checks only for deployment of Pz.2, 38, 3 and 4 models. The Pz.1 is not included in that check which you are granted a single auxiliary unit during the scenario. If you don’t deploy any Pz.2+ tanks, then the mission object status will stay open as blue question mark at scenario end, otherwise it should fail.
Depending how many tanks (Pz.2+) you deploy during Norway, you get either 0 (no tanks), 2 (1 tank), 4 (2 tanks), or 6 (>2 tanks) land command-points subtracted later in Belgium from 45 land CPs.
With War Economy spec, I see 47 CPs at beginning of Belgium without my tank deployment in Norway, so nothing seems wrong in my game at least.
