1939

1. Poznan

Text: Great Tour de Pologne starts... and i must say its long ago when i started this Journey. To be honest dont remember all details from first mission but this one was easy enough to beat it with any great tactic. Polish troops have low hp units placed at important points. I'll break them.

3. Lodz

Text: On this map I got a lot of AUX units and I used them as bait. Sometimes they were almost destroyed but it served very well. I bypassed the strong defense of the city of Lodz and and I conquered the city. Then with two units bypassed the positions of the enemy in the north and at the end it was easy to get 2 towns on the Bzura River. Certainly it could be played better - I often returned, did not destroy the damaged enemy units, unnecessarily left uncovered the wing where the enemy attacked the trucks and caused unnecessary losses. That's how I learned.

4. Piatek

Text:
So it was an epic battle. After this map I started to like GC and I bit into it. The defense of the Bzura River and the effort to stop the Poles succeeded precisely because I only let them enter the river. There they were much more vulnerable and that was their quick end.

Great... please allow one question: with No Fog of War... the AI behaves differently, doesn't it? It will also be harder to trap it?

In fact, much has not changed. The problem is in AI = 0. In addition to the Piatek map in 1939, the enemy just waits for me to deal a deadly blow, or attack only the weakened units. It gets a little better in 1940, and the real improvement is until the end of 1941. But my beginnings were very difficult, I didn't understand some things, I didn't know that losing HP would cost me Prestige. I was just a noob (and maybe I still am, but you won't know until you see 1941). :D The GC tour started in 2014 and so far this year ends with the completion of the GC 1941. Of course I will be giving the year 1942 gradually (actual). I've been playing a three-year campaign for 6 years. : D (but it is true that I bought PzC Gold in 2017 and so I could finish 1939 and start 1940).

Ah OK, with AI = 0 this makes sense I guess...
