Re: Range.

Much to my surprise I once had TWO +2 range heroes on 2 wurfrahmens. It was really bizarre. I do think the heroes come in batches in games, not so random. I have also had occassionally +2 range heroes on towed 17" or sig 38's. I tend to run with 4 towed and 4 mobile arty in GC

Re: Rudel.

I always change him to a fighter bomber immediately. His heroes are so good he makes a decent fighter on his own and as a bomber he doesnt need an escort.

Re: Need some help on hero attributes

For mountain and engineers (and paras),I would go for defence first, as although they are great for thier specialised functions (going through woods and bunker/entrenchment busting respectively,) they are both a bit weak when attacked first themselves. After that an extra movement point is very usef...

are they the same?

Can anyone tell me is the 'rush to moscow' in the basic campaign the same as 'moscow 41' just at a different timeline. Are all the starting positions, units etc exactly the same or are they 2 similar but actually distinct scenarios. thanks for info.

Re: PHCAS Final MOD (v012)

Re: SE question.

If you want to keep all se tanks for softcap reasons you will have to disband the se aircraft. I usually disband as it is not upgradeable if I remember correctly.

Re: Messina.

I have tried both ways and I am still undecided as to which is best. I would say that IFF you do NOT farm/build up a very strong airforcce right from the beginning of the west campaigns, as I do, then you probably should go for the upgraded units however I HAVE found that if I do go for them they of...

Re: Overstrength.

In general I agree with dalfrede; "So limit overstrength to low cost units [infantry], and to units that suffer low loses [artillery, Rudel]." I would add that; remember SE units DO NOT count towards the softcap but the ordinary units are calculated in the softcap at thier overserstrength value not ...

Re: At what time should you be content with your (infantry) unit(s) heroes?

I dont really think there is a specific time with infantry as later on you get a couple of nicely heroed infantry gifts which even with thier first hero on top of thier base free heroes are quite good. I would keep the plus two defence pioneer as defence is pioneers weak point so eliminating that we...

I applied for the beta, recieved an acknowledgement message but have now found that I am not likely to have the time in the near future. How do I withdraw?. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: Panzer Corps Wehrmacht Youtube claims the game of slitherine.com is inappropriate !!!

I am sure eventually it will make sense for slitherine to host AAR videos themselves. ( e.g. give it a few years -not many at all at the current rate !- when you can only access youtube (or alternatives) by signing in with the goverment mandated barcode tattoed on your rear :-) , I will not be using...

Re: Best feature from the twitch stream?

Strangely enough i still have on my win 7 laptop a working 1996 game (M.A.X.) which has the 'similtaneous' option. I think around the time a number of turn based games tried it but everyone unchecked it off, it was a gimmick which did not last.

Re: Question for mod scenario designers

That was interesting. The reason I asked that question was; having looked at the available video of Pzc2 available I am pleasantly surprised at the visual quality (," surprised albeit from very low expectations!, as I thought it would be awful as per historical turn based) so IFF when it is delivere...

Question for mod scenario designers

So when PZc2 comes out will you be converting any of your old but excellent mod scenarios to the new visual/graphic style in pz2? but keeping the basic scenario the same?
OR
Would you only do new mod scenarios.
(McGuba ? :-)

Thanks.

Re: Eastern Front: Soviet Storm v1.96b

uzbeck: yes, its ok, nowhere near as good as PZ. the AI is pretty dumb/easily foolable and the graphics are not as good. There are only about 25 maps in total and fewer units so much simpler/lighter.

Hi McGuba I just did Bfe v1.9 for the first time.
