Re: 'Tanks, more tanks, Tovarish!' - Red Star Review and Discuss

Okay, I guess I fell a bit behind in posting. So now I'll have to catch up. Summa - Finnish counterattack. This one is tricky if you dont play to the Soviet strengths. The Finns are nimble and their infantry is better than yours. But they dont have tanks and heavy arty. So, buy heavy artillery and p...

Re: 'Tanks, more tanks, Tovarish!' - Red Star Review and Discuss

Okay, I have now pushed my core up to the Mannerheim line. And it is rather cold here. Generally, but also emotionally - the Finns are not so keen on joining the worker's paradise. How rude. As you see below, I upgraded my artillery to the heavy mortar monsters, 'pounding Ivans'. Range could be bett...

Re: 'Tanks, more tanks, Tovarish!' - Red Star Review and Discuss

Alright, this one is a quickie. Dash through Poland, not to the wire this time. This mission teaches you about roads, paved roads. They make your units fast. I'll post my deployment below. Note that looking back, I would have brought one more arty unit. Basically, advance along the paved roads. As u...

Re: 'Tanks, more tanks, Tovarish!' - Red Star Review and Discuss

Alright, I crushed the Japanese for good and this part of the war is sorted. For now, at least. This is a straightforward pincer move mission and teaches you about supply rules in OoB. 1. Press spacebar to see where the supply bases are. These are the primary goals for both of your pincers. 2. I sug...

Re: 'Tanks, more tanks, Tovarish!' - Red Star Review and Discuss

Alright, should have posted earlier (dont you guys have any sun, beaches and holidays?), but here we are. I bought a few extra infantry, 2 fighters and upgraded one arty from light to medium (see deployment). Holding the Japanese at bay is pretty straightforward if you keep a few OoB rules in mind: ...

Re: 'Tanks, more tanks, Tovarish!' - Red Star Review and Discuss

Alright, Kalkin Ghol Heights are back in Soviet hands and the Red Army has proven that throwing tanks and massed infantry at an enemy can never go wrong. Never. Mark my words. :mrgreen: Instead of posting a victory screen, I will post my deployments in both pincers. Notice that I opted for the very ...

'Tanks, more tanks, Tovarish!' - Red Star Review and Discuss

Hi all, Red Star will launch today and I hope you guys are ready to rumble....through Europe with tanks. A lot of tanks. Not necessarily good ones, or well-maintained ones, but a lot of them. Crews expendable. 8) The game will be available later today. If you cant wait, here is a good video introduc...

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

Many thanks for all who have contributed their tactics, strategies and tips. Really enjoyed following along. My only regret is Andy had been posting his set up screen shots for the various scenarios but seems like after Vyazma only the victory screen. Hoping to persuade him to publish the rest :) I...

Re: Got quote for new PC, what do you think?

Some of you say I could save money by choosing different components, yes I probably could, but I have to go with what the shop has got in stock, as I don't want to have to wait for them to order different items if I start chopping and changing, and it might upet them if I overrule them. Anyway as a...

@Spike: Bottom line for you should be: How much do you want to spend? Those guys at the store will happily take all your money and then some for top shelf stuff. That extra 5% speed you never really see in performance unless you run a test costs you a lot of money. Especially watercooling - Jesus, w...

Hi guys, I just got back from the local computer shop after telling them I wanted them to build me a PC that's capable of playing all high-end flight sims and strategy games, and they gave me the quote below totalling 1500 GB pounds / 1900 US dollars.

Re: Is it just me...

I have played OOB for a long while and do enjoy the game and campaigns very much. I replay them in as many different ways I can. My point is this. My troops have always fought valiantly :shock: , overcome the enemy :lol: , destroyed them in fact :evil: , kept a good source of supply and have progre...

Whilst teh devs will likely be livid, this is probably teh best PR they coyuld have got, The game exp played very well and was such fun, now I'm really looking forward to the Soviet campaign, plays very differently. Yes, uhm, great that ...

Re: Next DLC?

Something intrigues me in your words. If the console port team is a new team different from the original devs team so the console port team has to start from scratch knowing nothing about the original code ? I doubt that they start from scratch and that there is no communication between the teams. ...
