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

I'm curious, if you fielded four Panthers during mission 1, did you achieve the sec. obj. (12 damage) and got the reward tank in the 3rd scen? Unfortunately, I didn't get the objective even though the damage counter showed 27 / 12 at the end of the scenario. I saw a thread about this issue, so it's...

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

One thing with these defensive missions- well, all the missions; Is that the air opposition is much better than in earlier scenarios. As mentioned above, putting your fighters with aux bombers will allow you to score a lot of free hits on the enemy air complement. In scenarios where you aren't getti...

Nope.
Hey thanks!

That first scenario is a bit of a doozy, and that aux Panther helped a LOT.

Looks like you may need to be losing if you ever want to develop the super heavy tank, too.

Re: about submarine war

Hit and run with torpedoes. You want to plan your attack so that you can shadow convoys from ahead of where they are travelling.

Re: Beware: Tiger H is very expensive junk..:)

I used my unreliable tigers to good effect by using them in pairs. So if one triggered, I'd get another chance with the other. And when neither triggered, the combination of the two was absolutely devastating. The trait, and having to play this way, did slow down my advances a bit, but I mostly used...

Re: Returning Player is a little lost with Blitzkrieg

By the way, you'll save yourself a lot of RP if you keep that flak next to your artillery whenever there are enemy aircraft in the sky. Given the choice, the AI aircraft will choose to attack uncovered units rather than covered ones; and each time they get a hit on your 17mm, it is going to cost you...

Re: Returning Player is a little lost with Blitzkrieg

Your first purchase should be one of the 8-range artillery units. Softening up units prior to attack is really important, and unlike some people, I don't go for the kill on enemy units; because it often causes you to get strung out and the furthest ahead units get hit back hard. Beat 'em back, and y...

Re: Desert Storm, no deployment

Part of the reason you are struggling with your deployment for Desert Storm, is that you first have to play Operation Desert Shield.

After your side issues the ultimatum and the deadline passes, then you can commence Desert Storm with a full deployment.

Re: Please Fix Kriegsmarine: Operation Torch

Oh wait, now I remember something. It was similar with changes made in a custom campaign from some other guy: You actually shouldn't have to restart the whole campaign for "Opearion Torch" to work, BUT you have to load a savegame (e.g. End-Turn save) from the PREVIOUS mission, at least. After that ...

Re: Please Fix Kriegsmarine: Operation Torch

Must I start over :shock: (fourth time...gosh) ? For a f*ing secondary objective that gives you literally no reward. Why? Might as well ask why play the game at all. For some people, part of enjoying the game is accomplishing all the objectives. The in-game reward may be meaningless, but I doubt an...

Re: Are escorts even worth it?

My unscientific experience has shown that there is little to no benefit to giving ground attackers more than a single escort. That said, escorting cheap attack aircraft with your expensive fighters is the best way to take out the enemy fighter force with minimal losses. Your ground attackers get che...

Please Fix Kriegsmarine: Operation Torch

The date at the campaign screen is incorrect, which makes it so that you can't choose the aircraft carrier specialization.

This makes accomplishing the bonus objective with your French units virtually impossible.

Re: PanzerKrieg - Voronezh campaign

Get some of the 8-range artillery and deploy them in teams. Don't attack anything you haven't softened up yet, and don't worry too much about finishing off enemy units. Better to not overextend; you'll be able to finish off the weakened units eventually. In the meantime, they will clog roads and tak...

Re: quick question on leaders/heroes

No. Only one applies, at least bonuses of similar type (like infantry attack for instance). At least back when I tried it a few patches ago. I haven't experimented to see how it decides which to apply though. Of course it could be a situation where only one bonus *of a type* applies, meaning that ma...

Re: What level do you prefer enjoy-ability wise?

It really depends on which campaign I am playing. The newer offerings seem to be harder in their "organic" form, than the older DLC.

Re: Kriegsmarine Operation Torch, No Carrier Now

Ugh. Been trying to finish this campaign for ages. Was hung up on the "All units revert to 6 strength" bug before this.

I don't want to mod my game, as I'm pretty crap at that stuff. :(
