Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

In theory, we could provide an option to always revert units to default angle (profile?) after every action. It won't make units as easy to recognize as in Panzer Corps (because of a more top-down perspective), but it might help somewhat. Would you guys use such an option if it was available? 2D st...

Re: The Panzer IIIN

Its intentional. The Panzer IIIN has always been a nice little hidden gem. Great infantry support. At least till 44.

Re: I miss generic heroes

I know a lot of thought and care went into heroes. I can understand how someone could customize favorite units.

I just miss plain old + 1 attack guys. Less bookkeeping. a

I miss generic heroes

I know the devs worked real hard on heroes, trying to make them different and flavorful. It pains me to say it, but I'm not a fan of the new heroes. Several of the heroes I have discovered are very situational. It reminds me of my old Dungeons and Dragons days. Among all my other weapons, I have a s...

Re: Are attack values high enough?

OK. So it's a feature. Start being aware and counting how many hits things take, and how often they escape long enough to get reinforcements. It is a long slog. Suppression sounded good to me in theory, but in practice I despise it. If a unit attacks and does 1 damage and 4 suppression, then a secon...

Re: Are attack values high enough?

I'm not exaggerating nor imagining things. It is hard to bring things to zero strength in this game unless circumstances are wildly in your favor. Infantry vs armor in open terrain sort of thing.

Re: Are attack values high enough?

Yes there are. There are many units that take 4-5 hits. Just this last round a bomber came in, I hit it with a 4 star AA during it's bombing run. Then during my turn, I hit it again with the AA, then I sent 3 fighters at it, finally finished it off with my fighter bomber. Most recent example. Happen...

Are attack values high enough?

When I started, it would regularly take 4-5 hits to drop every single enemy unit. I figured that I was using '39 equipment though and that would change. I'm now up to '43 and it is the same thing and there are just so many of them. This game might be better balanced for multiplayer, but single playe...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

I'm adoring the new transport rules. Being able to disembark before the turn ends is great. Amphibious landings are no longer a colossal pain in the ass. It is a great improvement.

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

I'm not sure yet. I would have been perfectly happy with a naval core just added into the first game. Something akin to Pacific General, warts and all. I would have played that game for the next 10 years without a complaint. This game is rather new to me. Some good. Some bad. Some things I will have...

Re: Initial reactions

More first impressions: Mostly good. I defeated Poland and France and chose Libya (my own personal favorite theatre of the war). I'm unable to add Italian units to the core. I hope this is just a vanilla game thing. If I want minor axis units in my panzer core, it's my business. I'm the player who i...

Combat Predictions

Is it my imagination, or is combat less chaotic and "swingy" than the previous version?

It seems the combat outcome generally deviates from the prediction by only a point or two.

You are not alone. I am proving to be very incompetent at this game. I swallowed my pride, bumped the difficulty down to easy and i am still getting stomped.

Re: My feedback after some hours of play

After a weekend of play, I am having infinitely more frustration than fun. I failed so often I started a new game on easy, and am still not doing well. Resources are too scarce and going against units that are superior in numbers and quality over and over is no fun. I'm happy I just purchased the ba...

Re: Panzer Corps Priorities - Your Opinions

Thanks for asking. I'm pretty pleased with the game already, but---- Two in particular that would make me happy and I do not think they would be too hard. In the scenarios that contain minor nations, it would be awesome to be able to add those to your core. In the original SSI games I had a fun time...

Re: "UNDO" button, too softcore ?

Seriously, I just purchased the game tonight. I have it on a laptop using a stupid celeron processor. (I had little idea this game would need so much power since panzer core worked awesome). It takes a full 2 seconds from the time I hit the button till the action. Sometimes I'm unsure if the action ...
