Re: Estimated release dates for "Allies Defiant" chapters 2 and 3?

I agree with you !! I still hope too !!! AND new zealand Australian campaign will also very interesting. Please return to the pacific theatre as original title was :) +1 About 70-90 days between each dlc i assume, and usually after a big sale of steam (coincidental ?). Dont need to hasty, this can ...

Re: Allies Defiant Reviews

It was too short, both in mission number and turns, too linear and frankly not very exciting. At least for me those are not weak point of a OoB campaign. Personally I was happy not to have to spend more than 1-2 hours per scen. Played fast and good and it was fun. Some of the "larger" custom scens,...

Re: Allies Defiant Reviews

Hmm, I´m glad many people enjoyed this DLC, but I have to say that I was dissapointed. It was too short, both in mission number and turns, too linear and frankly not very exciting. Also very disasapointing not to have integrated the core navy element now that the chance was there. I also found it a ...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Desert Rats:

Mission 13. Enemy fighters never moved and in the end just dropped out of the sky when their fuel ran out.

Also the ekstra link-up objective after taking the 3 major objectives didn´t trigger eventhough link was established.

Re: Erik's campaigns

Took a go at Desert Rats again, since I was getting bored with the endless monotone big battles of the later russian and German DLC´s. I´ve currently started mission 9 (Tobruk) and this is simply way too big and the AI takes forever to do his turn. This should be cropped a lot, maybe to a third of ...

Re: Order of Battle: Allies Defiant - Announced

Core naval units needs a about 50/50 naval/land-campaign like the two original ones. In a primarily land campaign with the odd naval scenario naval core units are really not neccessary in my opinion. Maybe someone creates a Royal Navy campaign at some point (similar to the Kriegsmarine campaign). I...

Re: Order of Battle: Allies Defiant - Announced

The navalpictures doesn´t show any core navalunits, so I guess this is a further removal from the original core, naval, air concept that made this game really unique. That´s unfortunate. I had hoped this would have more of a priority, especially since we´re leaving the "eastfront" theater. It wouldn...

Re: Gates of Kyros on challenging

I play on legendary Iron maiden with scaling on and the trick is to have atleast 5-6 archer units (I aim for 2 firearchers as they also melt undead ground units), a few strong melee units (preferably with break charge ability to defend against Filos´ heavy knights) and some undead cannon fodder and ...

Re: The "Unreliable" Truth

I never use units with the trait, so all it does for me is limiting the game.

Re: What is the Future for OOB?

Moving away from WW2 would be too gamechanging for me, so I hope they stay in this era. Hopefully back to the basic land, air and sea as stated in an earlier post.

Re: What units to buy with the WSS?

I always use 2 inf until I get more req.points for SS. After that its usually supplemented by AA and AT until I work up enough points for a monster AT or two. I usually use the 2 inf throughout.

Re: Tell me about Difficulty

I always use stratbomber (on hardest diff) when I can get some good ones and love their high mobility, high suppression and good defence. Especially in Red Storm I find that my stratbombers are rarely targeted by luftwaffe fighters, whereas I have to think much more about the placement of my soft ar...

Re: Tell me about Difficulty

Yes, pound with arty and stratbombers to reduce enemy efficiency until you can attack without taking damage yourself.

That´s basically it.

Re: Fantasy General II - Legend Campaign

I did have to start from scratch 7-8 times, but love the Iron Maiden feeling. Did you know the Iron Maiden wasn't actually a real thing? It was made up to show how barbaric things used to be... but it was exactly that, made up :D. I didn´t know that. And just to specify, I didn´t play "blind", as I...

I sorely miss a campaign containing naval, land and air core units. This is what originally set this game apart.

I'm playing the Invasion campaign again (and enjoying the updates, like the training camp). Repeating an suggestion I made after my first play thru and seeing the same problem with this play thru. I suggest changing "Fortify" to allowing it to be used after move, instead of only allowing if the uni...

Re: Banzai - campaign beta test

It is time to pick up the samurai sword and head into battle again. This is a collection of Japanese scenarios from 1939-1941. You will be fighting against Chinese, Thai, British and US forces. There are quite a few larger maps/number of units here, so probably not for small-scale tinkerers :D But ...
