Re: Fall Weiss Scenario

Okay, so this is completely off topic, but I have a friend from childhood whose dad lived in Poland in 1939. The Germans overran his town, and then by treaty it was given to the Soviets. He spoke several languages, so the Soviets conscripted him to be a spy. He got off a refugee ship at Ellis Island...

And don't forget all the rapings of civilians and pillaging.
it gets far far uglier than that.
Uglier than Coventry, Katyn, Dresden, Malmedy, Hiroshima, etc etc? I don´t think so.
Yes, uglier than that (except perhaps Hiroshima). Way uglier

Re: A KV-2 vs a completely suppressed Panther

The KV-2 was made to shoot at concrete, not against metal, it's a self-propelled gun, not a combat tank, despite it's an heavy tank. yes well ok. but what happens if they shoot HE shells on Panthers without ammo? Do you think the Panther crew will survive a rain of HE shells? KV2 commanders see the...

Re: Anticlimactic?

A game of combined arms warfare cannot confront the ugly side of WW2 and Nazism because that side didn't occur on the battlefield. Actually, it did. Everybody -including the Western Allies- occasionally murdered pows, pretty much everybody bombed civilians, then of course partisan and antipartisan ...

Re: A KV-2 vs a completely suppressed Panther

10 strong KV-2 vs 8 suppressed encircled without ammo Panther KV-2 does nothing.. Tank commanders don't know about HE? Not a single loss for the Panther... Totally out of whack. The game mechanics are totally not intuitive and don't make sense really. KV2 is artillery for taking out bunkers. It was...

Re: Anticlimactic?

There is also another problem of exploring such themes: We can't say Hitler, we can't say Nazi. How can you have Operation Valkyrie if we're not allowed to put Hitler and Nazis in the game.....? I 100% agree. It sucks that you're operating under that restriction, and I feel the game would be made b...

Re: Fall Weiss Scenario

Re: Cheat code request

Cheat NewHero There must be something in the game that decides what heroes you can get, I assumed this would create a random hero but that seem to not be the case. If I generate 3 new heroes, then reload the game to just before hand and generate 3 heroes I get exactly the same traits, name etc. But...

Re: Enemy units escaping across the map.

1) I'm not unsure which zoc method is best I just don't care either way which is used. Both can make sense in context depending on scale and as this game doesn't really have a set scale it's pure design decision. As long as my opponent has to follow the same rules it's fine. See that's the question...

Re: What good are captured units?

The Germans even had a word for it - beutepanzers. They even built their own T34 in captured factories, the T34 747. Rommel used Matildas in North Africa.

It adds flavor.

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

Thank you Gwaylare & Hemi for taking the time to write thoughtful responses. With all dues respect I disagree with some of your analysis. I have edited your comments for simplicity. On the other hand an encirclement does not have an major impact to the encircled unit itself for a strong unit. It do...

Re: Any tips for using StuG/Marder type units?

If you play the campaign with the denied air force trait, it's a great teacher to using AT because without Stukas those Somuas, Char Bs, and Matilda IIs are hard nuts to crack. Deploy them where you can adjacent to infantry and armor that may invite an armored attack. The hero skill where the unit a...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

I posted the following in another thread Friendly units do not negate EZOCs unless you have the perk that does this. The reason people are having issues with encirclement is the ZOC rules are too strict. Your enemies ZOC blocks supply even if you have a unit there, therefore encircling. This makes ...

Re: Repairing Prototypes?

When you get a prototype offered, there is a number with it, usually 20. That's the number of points available for that unit. You buy the unit with a strength of 10, and subtract that from the number of points available, and you have 10 points left to repair. That's it. After a couple scenarios you ...

Is splitting units to get encirclement worth it or just risking those splits core units? Do I need an all pionere...

I have no idea where to find them and if its not officially baked into the game interface don't except others to find it.
Most games use those alternative methods as their channel of communication. If you want to find a gamer that's the place to look
