Re: AAR for Moscow 43

Is this path still open? Can you still get a Moscow 43 in PC? Seems that the path isn't open anymore according to the charts

Re: Status Check for GC

That did help. I read that after losing, or battering my forces a few times. Rushing is probably the worst things to do here. It'd very unforgiving. I also took a lot of air losses due to rushing and bombing bear the river and got hit by AA. My last run through I got decisive and lost only a stug to...

Re: Best Infantry Unit

I agree the pioneers were awesome up to about Stalingrad. then suddenly their effectiveness drops. SMG tear them up. And as was said they're very expensive. I had to reinforced one hit to 4 at Kharkov. Cost me several hundred prestige. Think it'd be better to use grenadier or register infantry and s...

Re: Upgrade Questions

I loved them in 42 but did Kharkov and upgraded one to a tiger and used the other to take the city and clear the hills and woods before it. They're Def very vulnerable now. I upgraded the other to a tiger afterwards. I guess for partisan sweeps they're good, we they can get there fast and not worry ...

Sorry I lost my replay when my computer pooped on my earlier this year...but that is the way I layout my AAR's which are cumbersome but detailed in where I went and what faced as I did
No worries. It's a good log, but doesn't help me as an outsider.

Re: Status Check for GC

Donets is Def a no go. I tried crossing once, had some success but it ended up being a resource sink due to the endless counter attacks. Well done. Though to be honest that ARA doesn't give me a good feel on how you played. It's interesting, but I don't pick up much from it. I'm broke now, after Sta...

Re: Status Check for GC

Finally was able to get a MV at Kharkov 43. I tried about 5 times, and keep losing a few units and took some serious damage. The key is to approach the bridges near Kharkov, very carefully. If you rush it, they counter attach and wreck a few units. I also tried stripping the east group holding the r...

Re: Status Check for GC

I'd rather keep the T34/41 than the Matilda and Char B1. Armour isn't much less, Initiative and HA are better and SA better than Matilda. Plus you can get them into position faster either as a blocking force or a fire brigade. However, I'm sure others could make a case for selling the lot and buyin...

There's no evidence whatsoever that a 2D like mode is under development.
Honestly I'd rather just have more scenarios and have them impact each other more, then

Re: Status Check for GC

OK, need advice. How does one know when the Soviets get to go first? This affects my initial setup in various rather important ways. Had to re-deploy and start over after pressing start the first time. :D If it's a defensive battle you go last, or so it seems. If you're on the attack you move first.

Re: Why "3D" Graphics Will Never be Good for PzC

As long as you can switch to a 2D like mode, I'm cool. Also I'd like to see alternative history scenarios. Like a Kursk where how well or how badly you did at Stalingrad and Kharkov impacts the situation. Plus if you win or kinda win there shouldn't be a retreat. Maybe some limited offensives. I'd l...

Re: Stalingrad, the Docks, and the Ruins

Great maps. I did the same in the ruins. Went north and took out the major positions. While also sending a relief force to the Italian airfields. I didn't want to risk having no air fields. This was way easier than I thought it'd be. Helped me recover prestige I lost at Stalingrad and storming it. H...

Re: Panzer II Flamm: Hot or not?

Yep, Flamms are tank magnets. I have started using mine occasionally as bait for enemy tank ambushes. Draw them in, take your licks, then next turn take out two or three enemy tanks for the price of some flamm replacements. Any unit that can draw enemy out of entrenchment and into the kill-box is a...

Re: Panzer II Flamm: Hot or not?

:D They seem to gain star faster than most tanks. You can use them to build up an very experienced unit rather quickly then change it to a battle tank. Honestly they're pretty good and can hit back against decent tanks and not die. Unlike infantry. I've toyed with the idea of not deploying infantry...

Re: Why "3D" Graphics Will Never be Good for PzC

I agree. #D adds very little for being so distracting. It doesn't add anything for me, and it makes it harder to play and less fun to do so. I also don't like the unit shadows. That too makes it hard to discern what is there, making it a much slower game, and it easier to make annoyingly simply mist...

Re: Stalingrad Docks - Arrghh!!

I tired to go across the field. Was really hard I stalled out hard. I also didn't realize how bad the 87s are at attacking the transports. Which let a lot across, damaged but when they reached my likes they were at full strength. I might play it again and just rush across the north and let my panzer...
