Re: AO Gotta catch 'em all! - The Pazermon Run

I'm already slightly depressed by having to go back to work after two weeks, so I'll also won't be able to pick up the same fast pace as I had so far. Hopefully around the holidays and new year things will look better, but there's also that ghost of Cyberpunk that's poking me in the side and asking ...

AO 1939 - Raate Road Starting Prestige (after purchases and replacements): 45822 Hero: https://i.ibb.co/qsdZmDk/52.jpg All my AT, AA and artillery units have a chance of reaching this skill at one point due to the length of AO, so I decide to add the hero to III./JG 1 for potential future fighter s...

Re: Captured unit tier list - AO based

Looking forward to the 1939 and of course 1940 expansions to this thread. In my experiance the main draws in 1939 are the Somua, Char B1, and Panhard for most of the Campaign, plus the Russian BT-7s and various rarer Russian goodies like the Katayushas in Poland and the Elite forces on the Raate Ro...

got the Gibraltar 203, now is the next one defended by a 15 infantry and a 10 AA? or is it further along the top of the map?
Further along the top, just above where the minefields start to appear.
Hex 20,4 to be specific, might be best to just visually add this. :)

And I still need to actually get all those Overruns to get Steamroller on Sturmer in the first place before I can even begin any sort of mass Steamroller plans.
Haha, good point. It may take all the way until 1944 and 1945, and by that time every experienced unit will likely be a beast.

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

Today's lesson of the day is that Giving a Unit an Overrun Hero also gives it the ability to earn the Steamroller Award, at least for Anti-Tanks. Further tsting required to determine if it works for every type of unit (Now that I'm thinking about it, would giving Overrun to a Fighter or Bomber even...

Re: Captured unit tier list - AO based

OT-133 - Flamethrower variant of the T-26 designed to combat soft targets rather than enemy tanks. Quite efficient at this role, but limited supply can impact it's usefulness. A good target for the Field Repairs hero, since with him it can turn into a solid part of the core army for multiple scenar...

Captured unit tier list - AO based

Time to expand my tier list threads into yet another one inspired by my Panzermon AAR where I try to use only captured and gift units. This time in the thread I'd like to focus on captured units (not gift ones as that fits better the existing Commendations, Caches, and Collectibles thread and beside...

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

So apparently I might have been wrong about Auxiliaries made with captured/prototype equipment refunding you when they disband between scenarios, because I now have only 9 203mm and it never got damaged once. An annoying setback, but I guess I don't have to worry about fitting in a 6 Slot Artillery...

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

Looking forward to the re-run - reading about these is almost as fun as playing and I'm curious to see how things progress. :) No M11/39 Prototypes for me this time, which coupled with the fact that I realized since you get refunded captured and prototype equipment used by Auxiliaries when they disb...

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

Makes sense to restart from my point of view. Green Army can indeed seem to counter the idea of Inept Logistics and Auxiliary Force, both from a gameplay and flavor perspective. Ultimately the point is to have fun with a specific concept, not to make the challenge tedious to play. That's for example...

Re: AO Gotta catch 'em all! - The Pazermon Run

Also, wasn't the Panzer IIC available in Czechoslovakia? I thought you mentioned allowing the upgrade of German Gift Units as long as it followed the same lineage? Oh, wait, Retrograde is on. That probably explains it. Correct, Retrograde delays it by a singel scenario and it will come in in Sarreg...

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

How difficult it is to take down enemy fighters here compared to later stages of the war. After PzC 1 I was used to having air superiority or dominance all the time, but the He 51 is hardly a contender against Soviet built fighters. As for Antequera itself, I feel that trying to lure units from the ...

Re: Would you use an understrength prototype?

I'd rather see a script preventing from using more than one of such unit. It would be restrictive, of course, but probably more balanced in terms of losses to the unit, while still making sense from a lore perspective. I would probably still use 5 power units in some types of runs, especially if the...

Re: Hero abilities tier list

Let me second your S+. In a 1939 AO campaign and (no "rerolls" but started SCW with KT), as of Brest, I have "rolled" three Envelopment and two OA Heroes. I think I am going to have to quit and start over. It really isn't fun. It's like a walkthrough collecting enemy equipment. I've tested out this...

Re: AO-General Flasch's Auxiliary Adventures

I've always had a habit of naming my units, and I can thank you and Horseman for helping me find out about more historical naming for unit groups. The callsigns are there partly because I like the individuality and partly because when reading AARs I often have to scroll up when, say, just PzAbt.1 o...
