You pay less and the people who made this great game might get even more money (of course the price will not be much lower).<...> And they deserve for their work.
It's yet to be seen if the game is that great. What I see so far gives me mixed feelings. And Matrix greediness is well known.

Re: I want to preorder! :D

What's the point of preordering? Isn't it more wise to wait and see how stable and polished the final product is?

70 bucks, eh? Matrixine (or Slithatrix) is gonna wait for my money until I check out the free version. Can't actually remember when I did it the last time. :)

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 expe...

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. Yeah, I know about him, but for example https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3H5lJfctAJRgHzY3JIuwsw https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsJCJD1tAzTZ1eUUiskH-9w these two guys are...

Re: Any decent youtubers previewing PzC2?

Do you really think it's a good idea for your main entry point of a game to be crushingly difficult? Even Darkest Dungeon took a little while before it crushed your soul as I recall. :P Nah, I'm not a diehard grognard myself. But I took PzC as a point of reference, and for me it had just the right ...

Re: Any decent youtubers previewing PzC2?

I don't think Slitherine is allowing general access to youtubers for the game yet. Well just on YT I saw at least ten people playing PzC2. And at least half of them play like they have almost no experience of wargaming and knowledge of history/tactics. Really. I'm not exaggerating here. The fact th...

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

Every time Starship Troopers is mentioned I get a little bit sad, as the original book by Heinlein is good, but the movies are utter trash :D Can't agree more. The book was great, both in philosophical and military aspects, and could've provided a solid base for a detailed squad-level wargame, at l...

Re: Apollo and Briefings

I liked those briefings myself, they feel like a nice detail for both immersion and fun. Of course, I like both reading and military history... but doesn't the whole target audience of PzC2 like those, too?.. And that Apollo dude... let's just not defile this forums by discussing his way of playing ...

You intend to crush it by bad leadership? Cause the default campaign is crushing things with Wehrmacht.

Any decent youtubers previewing PzC2?

Well, subj. All those I've seen are terrible at the game; that Apollo guy is especially bad at PzC, military history and commenting. Either it's just not their cup of schnapps, or the press build got shipped off without manual and tutorial. And still, playing as awful as they do, they still manage t...

Re: A Fresh Look

Buggy saves and invisible units make the game unplayable for me. The worst is, I absolutely love the game while it behaves as intended. If only I could throw a couple hundred bucks in the monitor and the game would suddenly became bug free...

Huh. Seems the skirmish games add to my rank progress, but not the campaign ones. Weird.

any saves for the developers to look at?
And how can I actually save a game which saves on itself only, on turn end?..

ANA SF getting stuck in mountains

When ANA SF rappel down into mountains, sometimes (about 1/3 probability) they get stuck in the middle of animation or turn invisible. The unit in question can be selected, but if any order given to it game soft-hangs, not completing the order nor allowing me to select any other unit. The only way a...

Awards stats are all over the place

So I finished the tutorial missions, got DV-V-V-DV, no restarts, didn't touch skirmish yet. Now, the stats on the uniform page... Distinctive Unit Identification shows 3/18 campaign victories. Defense Distinguished Service Medal shows 2/2 successive decisive US victories. Army Distinguished Service ...

Re: New to series Question(s)

Downside you will be a bit misguided to Rush and Hurry with All the Scenarios where you can get a Triumph only by finishing early. This. I'm playing GC now, and constantly feel not sure if I have enough turns left thus constantly rushing. That's why I'm at Crete Airborne with just 10k prestige in b...

Lookin' for a tiny interface mod

So now when we look at 'Battle History' screen of a unit there're notes of changing equipment, but nothing about the type of gear the unit was outfitted with initially. Is there a mod which changes that?
