I mean there you have it.Indigo121 wrote:I will consider these points, thanks. My tanks are all new after Stalingrad, which mean they are indeed significantly weaker. The Panzers are 3-4 stars, so that's a problem.
you field Green Tanks in late 42 and wonder why they are not performing
and don't take that personally compare your Troops and Strategies with those one of the really best if not the best player in Panzer Corps
I have not followed the Soviet Corps Vid Series closely but clicking on the link provided in this thread
I can see easily that almost all Units (except the conscripts he uses) Braccada fields mostly 3 or 4 star Units and a few with 2 stars. That's a huge difference in Fighting Power alone to a Green Unit even if the Units are not Overstrengthened (and quite a few of them are)
What I can not see in the vid is the allocation of heroes for these vet Units, but with the generous Soviet Corps dishing out Heroes I assume all of them have at least 2 if not 3 heroes already.
Bottom Line even if you field the same Units by Name and Numbers this is not even close in actual Fighting Power.
Your problem is more in the past though, it is absolute key to build units up with experience and heroes on your path and it's even more key not to lose anything completely.
Braccada is a master in doing that, he plans and thinks his strategies so well that he rarely takes any losses (not even partly losses in a fight) so he very rarely has to buy expensive in Game replacements and amazingly few cheap ones in the next Deployment Phase.
But don't fret that is the way Braccada plays and even though anyone can learn from it, that does not mean it is really fun to play like him. I won't even have the patience to outthink the AI like he does let alone could play a Scenario in such a one and done sequence shown in the videos not even if he would set up the Units for me.
We are talking about a state of the Art masterpiece here.
You need to find your own playing style you are comfortable with to have fun with the game. While you can learn and pick up things from the Best Players and even the Good and Experienced Ones you still have to do it your way.
And don't be surprised you will change and modify your style with eperience, new challenges and different Nations you play with. There are many ways to skin a cat (do not ever consider doing that in reality !!!!!) and you will be surprised how many variations and tactical depth is in this game
So if you fail on a scenario or even a campaign, so what ? next time it will be different anyway and working out probably much better
