Re: ‘41-‘43 soviet dlc wishlist

Obviously the best use of citizen militia will be in battle for Berlin in ‘45, I guess the last scenario of Soviet trilogy... I though there already was Volksgrenadier and/or Volksturm units in EndSieg, but I don't remember offhand. In the Soviet case it would be Narodnoe Opolcheniye (People's Mili...

Re: Order of Battle: NOT WW2

I'd enjoy a couple of Korea themed DLCs, as well (would want to play as both the ROK/US/UN and North Korea/China), but I think expanding beyond WWII should coincide with the development of OoB 2.

Re: Next DLC?

Really glad they decided to give the Red Army equal attention as the Wehrmacht by making this the first part of a trilogy. Молодец, Artistocrats! I still think having a Poland scenario is a bit of a waste (at least historically speaking) but it could be interesting if it is presented as a sort of ra...

Re: Join the beta for the new DLC of Order of Battle!

I signed up and am hoping to get a chance to help test this. I apparently did not get selected for the beta of Panzer Corps 2 (at least not yet) but would honestly prefer Red Star in any case.

Re: Next DLC?

kondi's "Deep Operations" idea is a good one and would accurately represent the role and function of mid-to-late war Red Army tank corps and tank armies. A similar concept would have likewise represented the German panzer divisions in the Blitzkrieg's heyday. These formations outran their supply lin...

Re: Next DLC?

Kondi's list covers the most significant campaigns, has a sort of geographic continuity, and I personally would have no problem at all if that exact list was announced. That said, I think it unlikely. There's a good chance the scenarios which are ultimately selected may jump around a little to inclu...

Re: Next DLC?

Getting back to the future of Order of Battle, I think it may indeed be (unfortunately) likely that only one Red Army DLC will be released. I can't predict all possible developments coming still, so this is not a set-in-stone thing, but the plan for now is not to get over with the Red Army in just ...

Re: Next DLC?

Regarding sources, John Erickson's two volumes (Road to Stalingrad and Road to Berlin) as well as David Glantz's and Jonathan House's When Titans Clashed have withstood the test of time. While much of the "scholarship" coming from Russian government sources is very politicized and ought to be read s...

Re: Next DLC?

I like the idea of including pre-Barbarossa battles but am equally concerned about overdoing it on these. Past DLCs have been limited to 8-12 scenarios, and unless the Red Army will get three DLCs dedicated to it like the Wehrmacht did I would not want to see more than 3 or 4 battles with the Japane...

Re: Italiens in Endsige

It is a little inconsistent since completing the Sandstorm campaign in an ahistorical Axis victory somehow still leads to the historical result of Italy's surrender in summer 1943.

Re: Carryover forces

I wonder if it will only be the German core forces that are carried over from Sandstorm or if there will be significant Italian participation in the Ardennes offensive, etc.

Re: Difficulty Levels are out of balance

It's fine. I hadn't fired up OoB for a while when I started a Level 3 campaign and completed all secondary objectives for Tobruk on the first try. Lost the second scenario on Turn 3 or 4 but that's okay...I like that you can now lose a battle and continue. Got my revenge on the Operation Crusader sc...

@Igor1941: You've posted that before (twice in this thread and a few weeks ago in the one about OoB vs. historical realities). I do not know Russian-language historians well enough to know who is trustworthy and who is not, but it seems most Western military historians are sticking with the establis...

Re: The ss too weak

One of the best things about the system in OoB is that it leaves things like this up to the player. As kondi754 and others have stated, the Waffen-SS formations units of the early war period were not considered elite troops. That said, if the player wants to expand and give their Waffen SS units pri...

Re: Alternate history speculation & campaigns

@kondi754: I feel like this thread has been hijacked enough as it is so I'll keep it (relatively) brief. Ultimately this is all about a game and there will undoubtedly be some speculative scenarios that are more far fetched than others, though I imagine the attraction of a "What If Hitler Does Not I...

Re: Alternate history speculation & campaigns

I don't think that I engage in hero worship of Zhukov but I would not agree that he was just a frontal assault butcher. Most professional military historians respect his strategic and operational skills while also critiquing his authoritarian command style as well as his stubborn persistence in the ...
