Re: Panzer Corps Wehrmacht Youtube claims the game of slitherine.com is inappropriate !!!

I haven't found any censored Panzer Corps/General videos displaying a warning so far. Youtube has, especially in Germany, lots of "make Facebook a better place" like reporting hit-squads. In Germany you just have to upload anything containing anything related to WW2 or the N word and the self procla...

Re: Future dev diaries

I read up the dev diaries, I am very excited for Panzer Corps 2. Some ideas: 1. Mechanics or other things from Panzer Corps 1 you want to improve or avoid in Panzer Corps 2. 2. AI, scripts or creative ways to improve the single player/campaign experience. 3. What will make Panzer Corps 2 also attrac...

I don't know the boardgame, but "Over the Reich"

If you don't know either, googling "Over the Reich" should show you a turn based game with tiny planes shooting each other.

There was a later sequel called "Achtung Spitfire".

Check Your 6! seems similar, but without using a separate map for combat. Let's see, I will be watching this.

Re: Kriegsmarine - Thumbs Down

I lost interest in Kriegsmarine after the third scenario and am about to give up on the OOB Series. This is no battle, there is not much freedom in what you can do. The objectives are more a checklist of things to do. Tactics involved matter VERY little. For instance, in the third scenario sinking t...

Re: What could come next in OOB

I hope we get interesting scenarios instead of weird special conditions to meet (do 2 damage to 2 thingies while dancing and doing it arse backwards) and heavily scripted gameplay. The 3rd scenario of Kriegsmarine stopped me wanting to play already. It didn't feel like a battle, more like a "wait fo...

Re: Wolfpacks - how to knock out escort ships?

I think the way ships get deployed is slightly irritating. You start off with maybe 2-3 ships, then after a few turns (you don't know exactly when at this point) the second waves arrives, after that the third. It's again a bit learning the mission pattern by heart, e.g. you can sink an Aircraft Carr...

Re: Wolfpacks - how to knock out escort ships?

I just did it, there was another thing with "Wolfpacks":

I had to hold back delivering the killing blow to the 19th ship in order to do my 4 points to the escorts first.

Maybe this can be fixed by allowing players to go on after the 19th kill till time runs out. It's only 15 turns, after all.

Re: A new story begins... Panzer Corps 2 has been announced!

When I hear "3D" I start to shiver.... Many strategy games that moved to 3D ended with worse visuals and less user friendliness...... (and 3D also often means more computer resources needed and thus a slowing down of the game) It would be good of Slitherine to share with us some visuals so that we ...

Re: Kriegsmarine - Thumbs Down

While the criticism is harsh, kverdon already played through the scenarios I am just about to play and figured out how to do this and that. My experience with Kriegsmarine is fairly limited, so I will play some more before pointing out things I liked or not. I already noticed some trends I wante to ...

Re: Wolfpacks - how to knock out escort ships?

I just reached this mission and yeah, have to agree: It shows that OOB's implementation of sub warfare is kinda weird and not too much fun. Sorry to say! I guess I will puzzle it out somehow how to make it without losing a sub or doing 4 damage, but this scenario isn't too enjoyable - more like a "p...

Re: Kriegsmarine Narvik: How to do the ground battle?

It's a matter of time, but once that worked out, the enemy counter-attack wasn't much of a problem anymore.

I also made great use of a Fw 200 Condor, it helped bombing destroyers and light cruisers and does so much better than the Heinkels.

Re: Kriegsmarine bug - can't land seaplane on seaplane tende

I wondered also already in the very first scenario that my Heinkel couldn't get resupplied by the support ship. Had to find a land based hangar for it, and its labeled a seaplane. Brrr! :(

Re: Kriegsmarine Narvik: How to do the ground battle?

Yeah, guess that's is how its meant to be. Sending the transport right in without worrying for the escort to catch up was asking for it...^^

Kriegsmarine Narvik: How to do the ground battle?

I only just got there, and practiced the sea battle already. But the ground assault seems to be the issue. My first transport, well, not sure if I should unload it right away or cruise on. I botched it initially and then just sank Repulse and Renown out of spite! ;) If you would like to share insigh...

Re: The Kriegsmarine leaves port on April 20th!

I am still not done with "Marines" and haven't even started Winter War or Blitzkrieg, but will buy this right away nevertheless - and of course attack right away. Like the naval portion of OOB best, so guess this one is a clear winner.

Re: Order of Battle to feature the Kriegsmarine!

Now that sounds interesting! I very much like the naval system of OOB. My mostly Infantry campaign with the "Marines" DLC lost me a while ago, the presumably difficult invasion frightened me enough to delay it for weeks already. And, to get to the point: Infantry, Infantry, Infantry, Infantry. I jus...

Re: Marines DLC, first battle (Taking the Initiative) report

Yeah, I am not a fan of this mechanic either. The Raiders are a very niche unit mostly or actually almost exclusively useful in tailor made scenarios for them.
