Hero randomization

Post by klajton1979 » Thu Apr 08, 2021 8:58 am

Hello to everyone - I'm new to Panzer Corps 2 but I've played Panzer General a lot in my early years.
I've noticed that after finishing my first SCW scenario I've recieved new hero. That's OK, but i tried to finish first scenario again in hope for different hero outcome, but with no success. So as far as I understand - heroes list in campaign are fixed, and generated during campaign start.
Is there a possibility to randomize it? So the hero will be randomly generated after each scenario?

Do something different before you finish the scenario, maybe? From what I know, different actions would use up the generated RNG and get you another one, not sure about this.

This is a feature of the game. Heroes are randomized at the start of the campaign.

So that the player cannot assemble a super team of heroes by restarting

So, heroes are not rlly "fixed", the thing is they have disabled re rolling heroes by restarting the map, how it works is the game rngs heroes before you start the scenario and you cant get another one by reloading only by starting the game from scratch, you ll get one after every scenario

This. By DLC 1941 I 've accumulated 7 or 8 (!!!) 'Entrenchment killer x4' heroes. So I ended up disbanding them and randomly using my finger to choose a 'replacement' hero from this list viewtopic.php?f=464&t=101096 then 'generating' it with the cheat.

Thanks for advice but this prevents achivments....
So it's not quite ideal but I see no other options.

no it doesn´t


another way is to change difficulty. u get different heroes on other difficulties. u can change the difficulty between maps. just make sure u have a savegame at the end of a map.

There is a annoying way to find out what all your heroes will be before investing the time to play most or all of the campaign.

You can follow my instructions here: viewtopic.php?f=464&t=104180

Otherwise you are at the mercy of luck. Each DLC, however, you can still import your core but reroll your heroes for the DLC.
