Re: US Marines - Guadalcanal Help (I don't like defending)

Hello, I had a look but didn't see anything recent about this one. I put the difficulty on the 3rd option. I am OK attacking but I seem to not be able to defend. At first, it was my fault, picking units I 'like' rather than what I should. I've just tried again on Guadalcanal. You have to hold Hende...

Re: Stormy Battles: Red Storm Review and Discuss

headsup: presige is scarce on the 2nd highest difficulty, i run out of it completely by bagration, need to restart and not use elite replacements.

I can't seem to get past the first battle of poland in Erik's campaign. What's the "secret" strategy?
thats the most difficult battle BY FAR in that campaign if you dont know the best starting units. buy more cheaper units instead of less more expensive, panzer 1-s are key in that scenario.

Re: Hero abilities tier list

there are ridiculous combos that breaks the game, out of which - vigilant+ignore entrenchment on a tank - envelopment + overwhelming attack on e.g. a recon ESPECIALLY coupled scavenger - first strike+rapid fire on a fighter are by far the most ridiulous. im sure there are many other combos which mak...

Re: AO 1939 scn tree is VERY controversial

Wow, I can see there has been a decent discussion :) But when I read your posts, I get the feeling that many players have mixed feelings and many concerns about the further development of AO after what they have received so far. Personally, I was hoping for a very well-prepared game, using new idea...

Re: The most frustrating part of PC2: when you find out that you have to restart the entire campaign..

chose trophies of war, flexible command, perimeter control. encircle valuable enemy units, especially 152mm artillery, 76mm air defense and t-26 tanks. all your tanks except the verdeja should be captured t-26-s, all your artillery should be 152mm and the looted 1932 and eventually all your recon sh...

Re: 'Tanks, more tanks, Tovarish!' - Red Star Review and Discuss

I also use the KV-2 on the highest diff, but I´m also being careful not to suffer losses with it. I never attack with it, if the combat indicator is higher than 1, and rarely even then. What I found cost me most were my 3 upgraded T-34. They are harder to keep safe, as the Germans attack them more ...

Re: Erik's campaigns

i gave us corps 43-44 a break but my experiences were (default difficulty): mission 2: with the 6 mine trick i wrote above its easy and fun on any difficulty level otherwise it must be a real pain. in fact with the mine trick its the funniest scenario ever :D messina: can be completed easy with a si...

Re: Erik's campaigns

US CORPS 43-44 - Mission 2 Gela Defense there is a trick that makes this map super fun: put 5 seabees around the right airport at deployment , lay minefields on turn 1 - you will have enough time to put the 6th mine before that german onslaught arrives. in the meantime annihilate the italians on th...

Re: Erik's campaigns

us corps 43-44 - mission 1 gela not sure if intended but if you dont land on the west side of the river at all only on the right side the ai doesnt attack with any forces from the north except the lone tiger. i did the mission in 7 turns because of this. if i land forces on the left near the marine ...

Re: Erik's campaigns

germany west 41-43 messina

apparently i was wrong you need to evacuate the 18 units otherwise it ends in draw which also ends the campaign for me with failure. (i gave the campaign up at salerno anyway, run out of resources and willpower, brutal campaign)

the bombers never show up though.

Re: Erik's campaigns

hello, germany west 41-43 messina has a few problems: - you write you need to evacuate 18 units to the right side of the map which is not necessary, the only condition that is required i think is to keep 18 units alive which is good because it is impossible to clear the ships from the channel - the ...

Re: Erik's campaigns

hello, germany west 41-43 - etna line south is instant defeat after unit placement and campaign ends with defeat. secondary objectives also bugged, each says hold city for x turns. etna line north & south gives 0 resources to repair from last scenario, you have whatever remained, not sure if this is...

Re: Erik's campaigns

hello, i think germany west 41-43 Syracuse screnario is impossible to do in its current form (at least without losing one`s sanity). there is no way you can rescue 15 italian units. didnt you mean 5 by chance? ive played a lot of your custom campaigns so far but i havent met such a punishing scenari...
