Re: Afrikakorps Mareth Line

I find the best defence against overwhelming airpower is good AA. Specifically, 88mm guns. I'd recommend two in your core, and station stuff around them so that it is protected (For bonus points they are also absolutely disgusting against enemy armour, especially if it suppressed.) Ideally sucker en...

Re: Tactical or Strategic Bomber?

Tac bombers for destroying armour in open terrain with near impunity, polishing off the last couple of bombers in a formation attacked by your fighters, after giving them the 'assist' bonus on their own attack, and sub hunting. Strat bombers for sinking ships, softening well-protected and dug in tro...

Re: Nation specific abilities in WWII

A rather stereotype-based idea, perhaps; and hence not overly relevant. For example: British good at fast evacuations...? Based on two strategic-scale incidents spread over the course of the war; so hardly something to build a special ability around. If it's going to be done, base it on actual opera...

Re: Soft Cap

Over strength is good...in the right place. Over-used it leeches your Prestige badly. Infantry invariably needs in-field reinforcement, so a point of overstrength is always worth it for them. Given that a point of in-field reinforcement is comparable in cost to a point of overstrength, it's best to ...

Re: Big discussion about strategy/tactics gaming morality

How can we be watching these movies morally? Because we are adults and can differentiate between a piece of entertainment and a massacre? Because we are not playing the game while fantasising about how great the SS were? Or because an intelligent person knows that seeing a story or piece of history...

Re: Big discussion about strategy/tactics gaming morality

so people today say: "It's just a game!", like it is an excuse for any bad behavior possible! Playing a game is not 'bad behaviour'. Again, let's go back to how the game is 'bad' because one plays a high ranking Axis commander, yet would have been 'good' if the force was Allied? Seems a lot like ar...

Re: Question: Buying new units

I like to buy up a variety of things and work their XP up so that if I lose something late-war, I'm not crippled with a rookie replacement. Although the game gives the player plenty of tanks, I found that I needed more:

SPAT for late war
AAA
Strategic bombers
Artillery. Lots and lots of it.

Re: [Axis Campaign] GTPG v1.15 (19/10/15)

Hmm.... Ran through the last half-a-dozen turns again and it's still not liking it; even when I have 10 German units in place at the end of the last turn, replacing the Romanians with another recon unit

Are fallschirmjager perhaps not counting as ground units?

I'm not [role]playing a nazi general; I'm playing a computer game. That's all it is. Not some fascist fantasy exploration.

Another question: I'm currently finishing off Balkans '44. Things have gone stunningly well, save for the loss of an SE tac bomber unit. So on turn 17, I have seemingly wiped out every allied unit in the Balkans and captured every town, except those in Italy. I have ten core ground units sat on 'A' ...

Yes it is. It's called risk management.

I tend to always maximum overstrength my strategic bombers, and have the very best type available. It's very expensive, but they shouldn't be taking many casualties anyway, so it's mainly about making the initial investment, then not unleashing them until the early rush of enemy fighters has been cl...
