Re: Battlefield: Europe MOD v2.0

Currently, if you are able to capture and hold one UK victory objective (as the Axis player), D-Day will be stopped / deferred, i.e. it means your opponent doesn't get any (additional) US resources to land anywhere (neither on the British Isles nor on mainland Europe) from this point in time. My qu...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

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 t...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

boredatworks screenshots show exactly what my problem is. I know, I have played PC1 much more than PC2, but in the PC1 screenshot I can immediately tell what every unit is. In the PC2 screenshot: - the german and russian infantry could be everything. I have no clue if they are paras, engineers or w...

Re: The Panzer IIIN

I believe some of Rommels PzIII's may still have had the 37mm guns as there were still some in use at this stage but would have mostly if not entirely been upgunned to 50mm sooner rather than later. Not 100% sure about the very first tanks that arrived, but by summer 1941 at the latest all Panzer I...

Could've fooled me. Suppression of speech is always the tool of a fascist. If they hate them so much, why are they imitating them?

Re: Organizational chart

I don't see how that would be an more benefical compared to the historic outcome. It might have helped to not bleed yourself dry until the very last moment in the hope to take Moscow, stopping a bit earlier and setting up a proper defense instead. But stopping at the Dniepr means you leave a ton of ...

Re: Combat strength question

Weirdly, nobody complained about the counters of PC1... 3D is here to fix what was not broken. Or maybe, they are just stuff that people thought would be interesting. Not everything needs to be about "fixing" things. This is a new game, if you don't like what it has to offer you can always go and p...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - A look to the future

I also ended the Moscow scenario including the bonus objectives and it came as a "reward" for the bonus objectives - NOTHING! Like Napoleon. Moscow is an illusionnary goal. Well, unlikely during Napoleon's times, Moscow was the all-important train-hub of the entire Soviet Union, without it the Sovi...

Re: Ideas for Panzer Corps 2

One thing that came to my mind lately, and it really is more of a minor thing: how about being able to use lots of prestige to turn a prototype into an actually produced vehicle? I don't mean those that exist as a prototype before their actual production-run, but those that never amounted into anyth...

Re: Anticlimactic?

In France, they had the short barrel, relatively light armor Panzer IV, and some early Panzer IIIs, with majority of their tanks still being Panzer Is and IIs. They were outgunned and out tonned by the Char B and Somua S35. German tank design still behind the curve in France. I think that kind of s...

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

Don't really see a problem with it. The zone of control is basically a contested area. You can't really move supply through a contested area, regardless of whether you have a unit in there. A unit merely represents the presence of a military force, it can still be fired upon by a unit next to it. Th...

Re: The T-60 - Light Tank No More?

Never said that squads should not be able to kills ships. I said the current implementation where a cheap str 15 bomber rules the waves is lame. Ju88 hurting ships, fine. Stuka hurting ships fine. Ju88 magic counter to ships, not so interesting IMO. Like the flying naval equivalent of Karl/Gustav. ...

Re: Artillery is Rather Broken

The ultimate example of this is the 1 range StuG and Brummar artillery types. They are so short ranged, they're sort of not even artillery anymore. They provide support fire for sure, but the inability to fire over a hex and needing to be in limited real estate adjacent hexes really hurts them. I n...

But there is a downside to horses as well, they require care and feeding, and it was practice during the war to send the horses to the rear to rehabilitate. When the pocket formed around the 6th army, it had no horses, they were sent west to rehabilitate. They could not move the artillery, ammuniti...

Re: NATO Icons

Having and using NATO unit symbols would defeat the purpose of this game even existing. I can't understand why anyoe would want to do such a thing. Because reading a map is more easy than direct terrain and ennemies, every general would tell you that. Reading terrain and reporting ennemies is not t...

• OverwhelmingAttack, "Always forces enemy units to retreat." • Envelopment, "Prevents enemy units from retreating, so they surrender instead." Makes me wonder what would happen if you combined these two in one unit. Would they contradict each other (must retreat, can't retreat, nothing happens), o...

Re: Favourite units so far?

Note: It is not historic to get a selfpropelled prototype AT unit in june 1941 based on a AA gun that will be developed in 1942. Only after the encounter with T34 and KV1 did Germany decide to rush build some AT units and those were the Marders. A prototype Marder at Kiev is reasonable, a Sturer Em...

Re: NATO Icons

I think there is a place for NATO-counters in the right game, but this isn't really one of them. When you look at something like the Hearts of Iron series, I'll always prefer to play with counters. You are operating on a strategic level, you send around divisions (and before the last game even corps...
