Re: Hidden Enemy Troops Rallying

As a new FOG player, I would have had more difficulty understanding "routing" percentage if it did not match exactly the units I know routed. I am very much against "routing percentage" changing "mid-turn" just because hidden units are seen, as it is not really realistic (it is not because your oppo...

Re: How to deal with exponential player growth? (soft cap, etc)

I liked Panzer General 3D solution : Each unit has between 8 and 15 HP. Technologies "just released" get 8 HP, then it is increased to 10 or even 12 for common units, and then 15 if it was an historical work-horse. There was also a limit in the number of each units you could have, just to make sure ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

I welcome additional rules to enhance naval warfare, but I fear that the developers may be taking it too far at the expense of simplicity and fun. I have played Order of Battle and got frustrated and annoyed by all the overly picky rules regarding naval units. (Same is true with some regarding grou...

Re: Mistakes vere made, mein Fuhrer - Endsieg Review and Discuss

Another way would be to make super heavy artillery lose 2 energy point by shoot, which would represent how complex those were to reload.

Re: FUTURE of ORDER OF BATTLE

I expect the soviet campaign: -part 1: before the storm. Training camp at spanish civil war, then crush japanese at khalkhyn gol, attack poland from behind. Of course winter war is the last -part2: for motherland 1941-1943. Till battle of stalingrad -part3: liberation. End at battle of berlin or ma...

Re: FUTURE of ORDER OF BATTLE

I haven't played EndSieg and I don't plan to play it. I played too much "Germany invades the world" (all the Panzer General up to PG3D, Panzer Corps, Panzer Tactics HD, Strategic Command, Decisive Campaigns, Unity of Command, + the various mobile games - I am all done with the Eastern Front). I only...

By the way Calmhatchery, you used the wrong flag in your map for Italy. Ww2 flag had the house of Savoy coat of arm in the middle.

Re: FUTURE of ORDER OF BATTLE

In addition to the French campaign I proposed above (and ignored :) ) I think it can be expanded beyond WWII on several wars that are NOT static : -Russian Civil War (Southern White campaign, Siberian White campaign, and Red Mega campaign) - Vietnamese War (esp. as Vietnamese, where you beat first t...

At the end of it, as historically, the Free Fre...

Re: How to deal with exponential player growth? (soft cap, e

Panzer General 3 SE had a double layer : - Limit in the number of units of a given type you could have, eg only 1 Tiger, after that you fall back on the 2 Panther, and if you need more tanks it will be the Panzer IV. - In addition, the "max strenght" of units depended on the unit itself. Typically, ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2

Reason to have less good units. Currently, the only reason to prefer say a Panzer IVG over a Tiger is the Soft Cap, which is an heresy of game design and a trap to anyone without a deep understanding of the game. I found Panzer General 3 had a way better way to handle this, which a double limit : ho...

If there was ever a Panzer Corps II

Hey, I am a huge fan of the game, which really have this "one more turn" feel. I bought all expansions except Soviet Corps... so far :) There are 3 items that I loved in Panzer General 3 Scotched Earth that I find missing in Panzer Corps : - Max strength [health] of a unit depending on rarity. In PG...
