Monte Cassino

Monte Cassino Went for the DV due to being relatively easily attainable. Only needed to extend a fex hexes out and the final wave doesn't hit until the last turn or so. There's a quad .50 cal enemy AA unit that's annoyingly free to hit my planes at the start so I used a 13-strength Rudel to kill it...

Cassino

Cassino Focused on defending Cassino only and barely able to stabilize. Only deployed two of the mines, saving the rest for prestige or maybe a cheeky deployment later on. I hate mines in principle though so probably the former. https://i.imgur.com/nFMAUxh.png https://i.imgur.com/xYIyNdg.jpg https:...

Anzio

Anzio Pretty standard approach, moved south along all lines while letting the enemy take victory hexes initially in order to re-capture them for prestige. The race to 4-stars has officially begun as I'll be permanently capped at 325 when starting 45 due to going the losing route. Nearly lost my fir...

Volturno Line

Volturno Line Defended the southern half of the map due to having more favorable terrain and lots of surrender opportunity on the Volturno. The bridge engineer that spawns helped with the latter by blocking retreats. Played entirely through a few times due to how easy this approach was in order to ...

Re: Taranto

Hey Huck? Are you finding yourself reloading a lot. Richard Martin has been discussing this a lot in his playthroughs. I tried Arras this morning and a I found myself reloading a lot, but I want to stop doing that as it just feels wrong, I may still reload some, but want to accept the rolls and mak...

Re: Most Important Star of Experience

IIRC the game rounds up those 0.5x experience bonuses to the nearest integer which means it's the odd levels of experience that actually have higher effective gains, levels 1, 3, and 5. The more 0.5x a unit type has the bigger the effect, for units with no 0.5x bonuses like strategic bombers then it...

Taranto

Taranto Went for all victory hexes except for in Taranto, obviously for the very valuable capturable equipment and to avoid the powerful warships that will shred my infantry and fully suppress my tanks. Raced north along the coast to avoid all that. The British landed unimpeded in the south but I u...

Catanzaro

Catanzaro Went with the British branch since prestige(?)...well I actually regret it now since I never fought at Salerno against the Americans. Back to getting marginal victories. Not at all easy however for this one and the next. I'm aware that I get more prestige for losses typically but would ra...

Messina

Messina Now for some cheese. Deployed a bunch of newly minted AA and paratroopers to get the 18 ground units on the mainland. Only "wasted" one aux unit by deploying it, the remaining 21 will be disbanded here and there when I actually need the prestige. Despite the cheese there was still tough fig...

Etna Line North

Etna Line North 1 Reload This battle is from hell and gave me huge trouble getting the DV. Reload on turn 3 due to just constant blow-ups leading to an ad nauseam amount of restarts. Deployed a bunch of the aux units to help out as you're given exit hexes for them. https://i.imgur.com/kq0RLNq.jpg D...

Thanks buddy for sending me the replays. When/if I get there in my playthrough they will be must watch research. I have not had time to type up at home. (So much going on with family.)

Re: Favorite advanced tips?

CTRL + LMB before attacking to get important information not in the basic prediction such as rugged defense chance, suppression damage (retreat/surrender), and enemy counter-attack kill probability. Counter kill probability for example can be 0% or 49%, a huge difference, and show up as the same -0 ...

Re: Need some help on hero attributes

1. +9 is possible. For tanks that's +9 to close defense and is the only way to increase it.

2. Extremely valuable for infantry since their initiative isn't capped in close terrain.

Re: Grand Campaign West & East 39-45 (Manstein) [Epilogue]

What did you do with Sarkozy commandos in the first Bulge? I used one to harass an artillery piece while staying in the woods. The others just were up for much. We're just kinda good faster infantry Mainly to bolster my flank, maybe drawing out enemies or ambushing. They can do some serious damage ...

Syracuse

Syracuse Quite the puzzle here, getting the aux units out is especially important on Ultimate due to the 100% disband income. Got 22 out which is more than I got on Manstein surprisingly. The three artillery pieces and two AA will also be of great help in the next battle. Two SE tanks to Panthers, ...

Gironde

Focus was destroying the commando submarine and maximizing surrender income. A few more turns would've gotten the DV too.

Dieppe

Dieppe Focused on holding the western half of the city which is easier to defend and gets you the captured Churchill. The air waves were extremely problematic, the spitfires can and will kill the Fw-190s that spawn in. https://i.imgur.com/XJs19oi.png https://i.imgur.com/wHWhkD0.jpg https://i.imgur....

Re: Grand Campaign West 42-45 (Ultimate)

How do you unlock Ultimate? Do you have to win a Grand Campaign at Rommel, Guderian or Manstein? Winning Soviet Corps at Zhukov doesn't seem to qualify. You've already unlocked it but need to add the html to the UI file by following the instructions here: https://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic....

Naval landing was in the south which means missing on all the flag re-captures in the northern city but made it easier to get the DV.
