Re: Axis Operations FAQ and Tips

Generally speaking one hero per map is too much.
Player will be swimming in super-units of all sorts by mid-war.

It might actually be reasonable.....xp progression is a lot slower so early years the content is balanced around not having high star units.
Problem is experience growth is very slow, but experience loss from replacements is normal, so most units will stay 0 stars forever.

Re: Axis Operations FAQ and Tips

How bad will be picking green army for these campaigns?
Slow experience growth and prestige abundance hints, that elite replacing everything is intended way to play.

Green army?

It seems green army trait completely blocks elite replacements on the battlefield on top of described effect. That 3 elite replacements can be used only in deployment phase, and it some of them were not used they disappear. Most clear example is 1st mission of the campaign, where you can't use elite...

Re: Pioniere Balance

As a side note, does anyone use new Kradschutzen at all?
They were not greatest unit in PC1, but their distinct feature was being infantry with associated close terrain advantages.
Current version (10 strength, vehicle behaviour in close terrain) seems pointless.

Re: Are attack values high enough?

109's are very cheap both in slots and prestige. Consider overstrength, if you want more kills per attack. Personally I don't mind AI air units surviving and retreating. They burn prestige and exp for repairs (AI seems to use only normal replacements) and you can easily kill them later. And in many ...

Finishing historical path counts as "victory"?

Does finishing the game in Berlin counts as victory achievment-wise?
Want to try that path on highest difficulty for a change.

Re: Pioniere Balance

I think infantry pricing policy is wrong. Regular infantry should be cheap, HW teams should be slightly more expensive. But specialist units should be expensive enough to make player think, does he really need them or can live with more standard wehr inf instead. Niche of Grenarier unit should be "a...

Re: Enemy units escaping across the map.

Retreating unit uses normal movement rules, force it to retreat into bad terrain - it will use all move points and surrender next attack. All used move points will be unavailable next turn. Surround it, and it will not recover strength or supression at all. And If its paticulary strong unit (otherwi...

Re: Half-tracks or Trucks?

For me its engineers and grenadiers in halftracks, normal wehrmacht/volksgrenadier -- on foot. Never felt foot movement slow enough to purchase trucks. Horse transport is probably just fine for lighter artillery too (they even move faster than trucks outside of roads), didnt purchase it only for aes...

Re: 1 Trait Challenge

I was too lazy to think about trait balance and special rules, just picked battlefield academy as it looked simple and not over-powered.
Finished the campaign on General without much trouble, I guess you can even play with 0 traits just fine.

Re: Artillery is Rather Broken

The German and British Assault Guns have EntKiller4 trait, which makes them TrackedStrats. The Russian and American Assault Guns have EntKiller2 trait, which makes them pointless.

Halftracks have rapid fire?

My grenadiers in halftrack ambushed enemy unit and thats what I've got.
Looks like either halftrack or grenadier 43 has hidden rapid fire perk, or maybe thats just a bug?

Yes, I wanted a reco plane in my core, but it never got any experience, zero.
Default way to obtain recon plane with experience is to upgrade one of your tac bombers into it.
Thats kinda waste of exp though, as recon bonus from stars is not that big.

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

I like varying core slot cost and improvements to underused units classes (AT / AA / recon mostly). Now its much more viable to play with "realistic" core instead of selecting all best tech units. I like better infantry specializations, in PzC 1 standard wehr inf was arguably inferior to mountain/pa...

Re: German infantry camo missing

Point taken about no winter camo. Thing is if you select newly purchased German infantry unit and open camo selection, there is no currently selected camo at all (nothing is highlighted by red square). 2 field grey variants and fallchirm blue which can be selected are very close to default "greenish...

German infantry camo missing

Apparently its impossible to give German infantry default camo, which newly purchased units normally have.
It seems winter camo is missing too (e.g. infantry in tactical challenge "river panther" wears that camo, but impossible to set in the editor).
