Re: Campaign Path Branches: Like or dislike?

I don't mind the branches, except when they have unequal rewards. For example, take the Karl arty-- it's arguably way overpowered and you ONLY get it if you play AGC. So if you play AGN or AGS you miss out on the Karl (a real asset late game) and get much more conventional "prototypes". Sooo, why sh...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 vs Panzer Corps 1

Panzer Corps definitely feels more like Panzer General. Panzer Corps 2 feels more like Panzer General 2. Personally, I am totally on board with this. Years ago when I was actively playing PG and PG2, I would always revisit PG for the nostalgia hit... which would near instantly wear off once you act...

Re: AO 1939 scn tree is VERY controversial

Ditto. These first two DLCs seem almost like "throw-aways" to me. A good excuse to play with a bunch of new features like mines, allies, etc., at the expense of typical timeframes. All very clever actually. Can you imagine the outcry if, say, allies had been implemented in a 1940 DLC and messed up ...

Re: AO 1939 scn tree is VERY controversial

When purchasing the Field Marshall edition, maybe already have a little text what that DLC is going to be about would've been great. (So you have to think about such things earlier) And although that probably wouldn't be good for sales, it would be honest towards players. Cause i probably would not...

Re: SCW - What's the Point?

I'm sorry, but I did not pay Cdn $100 to get some little backwater Spanish Civil war DLC, which had very little to do with WW2. Yes it was a terrible conflict, as all Civil Wars are, but for this game it should have been included in the original game as a Campaign and NOT as a DLC, or, better idea,...

Re: unit experience

Actually I think experience is more powerful in PC2 than the original. Could be, but it just doesn't seem that way to me. Accuracy wasn't used in PC1, so the full weight of the stat increase was always applied, while accuracy increase is still subject to RNG-- more likely to hit but not a given, th...

Re: unit experience

I guess this is a pet peeve of mine that I have raised before, but IMO experience is not handled realistically at all. This is driven primarily by the elite replacement mechanic, when in real life no such thing did (or could have) existed for land units except in VERY small numbers a VERY limited am...

Re: does anyone remember...

If you are talking about "Robert E. Lee: Civil War General", by Sierra Games back in 1996 or so, then yes! It was also known as "Civil War 1" by some. I still have the disc and actually jiggered it to work a couple of years ago w/Win 7, but have Win 10 now so who knows. To this day it was my favorit...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Axis Operations DLCs announced

I for one am very disappointed. These are two DLCs I would NEVER have purchased, and to have them as the first two published makes me regret having bought the Field Marshall edition. I took a chance based on what PC1 published, and you can bet I'll never do THAT again. While I understand there are a...

Re: Russian conscripts

Executions? In the course of the war, 168,000 Soviet citizens were formally sentenced to death and executed for alleged cowardice or desertion; many more were shot out of hand, without a pretence of due process. A total of around 300,000 Russian soldiers are believed to have been killed by their own...

Below: Russian conscripts in action in 'Enemy at the Gates' charging the Germans at Stalingrad. Many don't even have rifles but are told to charge anyway, I don't know if that's just Hollywood nonsense or if it's historically accurate- https://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g64/PoorOldSpike/sub4/sub400...

That kind of makes the point doesn't it? :D If you have to take time to "count road wheels" to tell what a unit is, that is time you are not playing the game. I think we all acknowledge there are work-arounds, etc., but you shouldn't HAVE to. It is a distractor. It detracts from immersion. I must ta...

Not sure there is a fix, but my single biggest annoyance in PzC2 is like the screenshot above: I have an incredibly hard time picking out aircraft at times.
