Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Axis Operations DLCs announced

I am so happy! Spanish Civil War looks great! The only thing (and this is minor) that bothered me a little was the purple color used to designate the Republicans; it looks a little cheesy. BUT, it is historical as purple was part of the Republican flag so I can happily live with it. Am happy to hear...

Re: Bru's Scenarios

Am half through the second play-through. This time I got there quicker! Bochmann escaped, mainly because I put more emphasis in protecting the castle than getting him (something for me to achieve next time). So now the question is, can I knock off the rest of the SS and what sort of assault are they...

Re: Bru's Scenarios

I enjoyed my first try of Castle Itter. But...why do the Austrians abandon their position safe in the fort and commit suicide by attacking the SS, thus opening up the fort for the SS to come in and slaughter the French prisoners? Is it a game balance thing? Otherwise, very interesting scenario and n...

Re: Defensive Scenario & Game Balance

Am just starting El Alamein and noticed that I am not going in with a lot of prestige. Am I getting this right, if you lose an objective and then win it back, you get prestige? It has happened to me occasionally on the ahistorical path but didn’t pay any attention to whether I got prestige or not.

Re: Patch 3 is out - Improvements to AI, UI, Multiplayer, Random Maps and more

Not sure if it as a result of this patch or perhaps a previous one but somewhere in the process, the AI seems to have gotten more aggressive but not always in a “smart” way. Have had a number of 1 or 2 strength units commit suicide by attacking full or near full strength units. Have also had units s...

Re: Thoughts/learning points after first campaign.

Love this discussion! The bruckenpioniere units are almost a must if you go the non historical route in the Afrika Korps campaign. From Egypt onwards it seems like they throw in tough nuts to crack unless you can get behind them while still staying in supply. They also serve in mop up duty, when not...

Re: DLC plans past Red Triology

I would love to see a Spanish Civil War campaign. I think there would be an interesting array of units and lots of room for “what ifs”. Plus, there is a nice little empty spot on the campaigns map where Spain is!

Re: How does the Overrun Hero actually work?

I have an over-strength 88 with AA vet that on occasion will totally take out a plane but it is rare. If some are able to take out planes with one shot every time, I’d be interested in how they do it!

Re: How does the Overrun Hero actually work?

I find putting an overrun hero on an anti-tank unit particularly if you add a +5 attack on infantry hero (butcher, I believe) can make for a very useful unit.

Re: Not all heroes work for all units????

Yeah, I was hoping that I could attach an overrun hero to a high powered fighter plane but it didn’t “work”. Figured it was worth a try!

Re: Anything above a Panther or Jadgpather worth using in USA scenarios?

In USA1 by the time I got to the south the scenario was already won! I headed north to land (even with the Italians, who all survived the battle) as the Allied Navies would have chewed up my landing craft.

Anything above a Panther or Jadgpather worth using in USA scenarios?

Ok and maybe a Tiger I too. But upgraded my best tank to a Tiger II on the East Coast and it spent a good bit of the game just getting to the battle. Looking at the West Coast, where the upgraded Tiger II and the Maus is available...any reason why I should consider the upgrade?

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Patch 2 is out (Includes missing localizations)

One of these days, the check for updates feature on the Slitherine version needs to get fixed. It finds the updates, it just never is able to download them without the error message popping up. And yes, downloading from Slitherine or Matrix works just fine but...
Still...love the game!!

Uninstall Beta version?

I played the beta on Steam but bought and installed the published version from Slitherine. Should I uninstall the version on Steam? With patch 1.0.6, I lost my manual saves from the published version but my manual saves from my beta now show up. Luckily the auto saves are fine and I can get back to ...

Beating a dead horse here...but bought the Slitherine version of Field Marshall Edition and now instead of 32 camouflages for the Germans, I now have 4. Two steps forward, one step back! Something for patch 2.

Re: AA - German 8.8 strength

I have had an 88 since near the beginning (now in England) and even with a rapid deployment hero, if I am lucky, I take a few points away from an aircraft before I set my fighters on it. I think point for point, a fighter or the Me110 are points better spent. I do need to try out the lower caliber A...

Re: Can a hero be killed?

To update my experiences, now had several more units, usually Engineers, die with heroes attached and the hero is always been there to attach to attach to another unit.

I lost a unit with a hero and the hero was available to be assigned to the replacement. Now, whether that happens every time or if sometimes they die, who knows?

Re: Missing Units you would love to see

A Russian T-35, which should get two (weak) shots and move very slowly. Would buy one as a Russian player just for the fun of it and would undoubtedly upgrade later if it survived. As a German player, would love to attack one.
