Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

Implementing a rule that ZOC gets blocked by a physical enemy unit will still allow you to explain encirclement in an easy way and doesn't have to be complicated. Units exert a zone of control on all adjacent hexes, except on hexes where an enemy unit is present. A unit is encircled if it cannot tr...

Re: Room for improvement

Can someone explain the parameters of encircled troops? I'm getting troops encircled when they have allies next to them and a clear line of supply behind them. Friendly units do not negate EZOCs unless you have the perk that does this. The reason people are having issues with encirclement is the ZO...

;) I don't think you need my permission for that. But sure, started to take pretty long anyways. Shame i wasn't able to make you guys see differently, even if it wasn't about the main pzc2 camapaign anymore regardless, since that was already done. At the very least, that some people might find the s...

Re: Questions...Questions...Questions....

A wise man once told me statistics are like a certain article of clothing. What they reveal is interesting, what they hide is vital. There's a key point missing in your argument. DLC achievement completion requires DLC ownership. DLC ownership is not factored into the calculation. When I started wo...

Re: Questions...Questions...Questions....

First, most campaigns in the genre are linear, and don't offer even the number of outcomes which Panzer Corps 2 offers. And most people seem to be happy with this status quo and never complain. But PzC2 offers only 2, Win or lose is the outcome. And even that is not certain. We have to assume for o...

Re: Questions...Questions...Questions....

people almost never pick a level called "easy", because it implies that they are "dumb". Consequently, my design decisions are based on this conviction. Sure, i get that. Makes sense.

Re: Questions...Questions...Questions....

It's a question of presentation and UI. I agree that we probably don't explain campaign logic of the new vanilla campaign well enough (but then again, past games did not explain it well either, try to play PG without campaign trees created by fans). Releasing this game was a mammoth effort, and in ...

Afterwards, people are done with what they want to see most, they do the rest, probably the "losing path". On what can be seen as a succes - Looking at a recent game Unity of Command 2. Only 6,9% of people managed to finish their campaign till the end (it doesn't branch - no bad ending) 6,8% of pla...

Re: Questions...Questions...Questions....

For what little it's worth, I agree with the Berlin Wall of Text above me. As I've said in other threads, no one really misses the old systems and the problems they carried around like baggage. But some positive elements were trimmed, and it would be fantastic to get those back, without wholesale r...

I asked this in the launch forum, but why did they opt to remove purchasing Italian units from north africa?

...do major rivers allow supplies to pass through or not?.. Apparently not..:) By coincidence I played a game earlier today that confirmed it, here's a screenshot- My 3 Germans at the top are out of supply because they can't trace supply across the maj river to the port supply source at lower left-...

Re: Questions...Questions...Questions....

Just a quick note: lingering hurts you. If you finish early, you get the prestige for all remaining turns, plus a bonus. Well, sure but say im playing on generalissimus, i get 20 prestige per turn. if i finish on turn 15/20 i get a bonus of what? 30% so to calculate 5x20=100. 100x1.3=130. If i fini...

Re: Bug Reports

I noticed that Major rivers don't show the "No supply" trait, like high mountain hexes, sea hexes etc. do. Though the manual says that no supply can be traced through them since wheeled units can't pass them. This is a bit confusing, do major rivers allow supplies to pass through or not? I would ass...

I ran into an incident where it seems the gebirgsjager don't bestow their attack and defence bonusses. My Gebirgsjager was on a hills hex, attacking a unit that's on desert (low ground). In the combat log, my attack & defense values haven't improved though the game indicates that they should. Video:...

The hit and run hero makes the Flamm quite strong against infantry in the city, but otherwise i would only use them against infantry out in the open.

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

Hmm, It's hard to say since i'm really mixed about this one. First of all because de dev's are currently working on some of the issues that are problematic right now, for example: the graphics. I'm having some difficulty playing on good graphics (and recording at the same time) because the game is e...
