Re: PACIFIC GENERAL for PZc 2

Solving this by randomization would have all the disadvantages you describe on top of ruining the historical aspect of the game. Defending Pearl Harbor against a Japanese attack from the south just wouldn't be right. I don't think anyone would use such a specific battle to throw randomization into....

Re: PACIFIC GENERAL for PZc 2

Interesting feedback from everyone. We'll absolutely take some notes. Though it seems pretty clear the players overwhelming want more 'campaign'. What exactly that entails seems to just come down to personal preferences. :) Part of what makes the European theater of WW2 so interesting is the rapidly...

Re: Panzer corps 2 release of console

You know what I remember? When I was a little child, my first taste of Panzer General, you know that original game, was on my original PlayStation console. Not PS2 or PS4, just PS. It introduced me to the world of strategy games, that I still luv, and now work on, to this very day. So I would luv to...

Re: PACIFIC GENERAL for PZc 2

Personally, I found Pacific General quite dull. The dense jungle makes for a quite static gameplay. Sure, you had the island invasions and stuff, but the ground combat was to a great extent an infantry meat grinder. Of all the possible DLC options for Panzer Corps 2, I'd put the Pacific theatre at ...

Re: Any decent youtubers previewing PzC2?

I mean, some of the tactics I can demonstrate are probably going to make people's head spin. But I'm under NDA so I can't show/discuss them at this point, sorry. :) Point is, I still don't think it's reasonable to expect gamers to instantly play this game like pros. The only people with enough exper...

Re: Any decent youtubers previewing PzC2?

He's awful. It's rare to see such an incompetent player tbh. It'd be fine if he actually had some historical knowledge but no. I previewed the videos before I linked him.... is he really so awful? Seems okay. I mean... Sure maybe *I* play better, but are people really so hungry to see highest level...

Re: Any decent youtubers previewing PzC2?

I'm being corrected. Apparently Apollo was NOT playing on DEFAULT difficulty, he was playing on the lowest difficulty setting. So that explains a lot of why he was successful even with tactics that you found to be practically offensive. My mistake.

Re: Any decent youtubers previewing PzC2?

So that was intended?.. Disgusting. I mean, they attack cities and forests with armor, use arty barrages after ground assault, have exactly zero recon units, don't even try to achieve air superiority or even to cover their bombers, use only elite replacements... and still win scenarios. That was th...

Re: Any decent youtubers previewing PzC2?

As for your title... I don't think Slitherine is allowing general access to youtubers for the game yet. I know there are several history youtube channels I very much enjoy, but they aren't really gaming channels. I can only assume there is more promotional content coming between now and the fixed re...

Joined the Discord. Green Knight there.

Many channels, very empty... more activity when it launches, I think.
I wasn't aware they are granting access to the official discord for public use yet. What discord are you talking about/did join?

Re: Apollo and Briefings

I actually don't really care if its voiced myself, but I understand why so many games are going full voiced now, and I think its partially because of how it comes across during streaming. Like I mentioned, I actually do think the game itself has actually been adding complexity like with encirclemen...

Re: Apollo and Briefings

You are right, I was probably too harsh-- I just get tired of seeing games I like get simplified and don't want to see it happen with this game. Honestly it actually appears you are introducing more complexity overall, so I should be happy. But I would like to see more historical details well, and ...

Re: Apollo and Briefings

I have to say I found the map not underwhelming but terrible. It doesn't feel right. If I open an old Panzer Corps 1 map, I straight away know what I am looking at. I can see units to deploy, I have a feel for where units go, I can easily tell terrain locally and at a macro level ...this map is a m...

Re: Apollo and Briefings

I had to stop watching him play. Not sure why they got this guy to play their game. He could hardly read anyway, and he struggled when he attempted the few sentences he mumbled and stumbled over at the beginning. Honestly was pathetic. It is sad developers feel they have to try and meet the needs o...

Re: Apollo and Briefings

Players are in full control of the pace of the briefing already. And they can even skip it entirely if they want. The 'short version' of every briefing exists already. It's the part in bold that spells out in no uncertain terms what the actual mission objectives are. Such as 'Capture all Victory Hex...

Apollo and Briefings

VoD https://www.twitch.tv/pixelatedapollo/video/539089634 So I was especially curious at an outside user checking out our briefings. I would say he enjoyed it for being different, but he was clearly not interesting in read it in it's entirety. Seems to me he obviously enjoyed it, and he spent a good...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Progress Update & AAR

But you didn't actually use any new gameplay mechanics. Did you exploit supply lines? Split units? Take advantage of AT supporting fire? I did, I'm surprised you weren't able to detect them in fact. :wink: Short answer: Yes. No. Yes. Long answer: I trapped and supply drained the Char B, which is wh...

Re: Slitherine to debut new PC game "Starship Troopers - Terran Command" in 2020

I have super fond memories of all the Starship Trooper user maps from Starcraft. I look forward to a proper SST game even after all this time.
And I will totally see if I can remake some of those old Starcraft SST maps in this game. ;)
