Re: Questions...Questions...Questions....

Alright fair enough, but that's just telling you how great the Grand Campaign was, not neccessarily that they liked how long it was or anything else like you say. It was 11 missions if i'm not mistaken, significantly shorter than the shortest PzC2 path. I believe the Grand Campaign was so good beca...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

What is really great about ZOCs is its simplicity. It is a very simple rule without any exception. Changing this might get thing even more complicated. Oh, is that why I'm such a fan of it. :mrgreen: I guess I consistently prefer straightforward rule sets that govern consistently instead of overly ...

Re: Playing Without Traits (exploits)

I do wonder how people will react once the AI starts to wield their own heroes.

Will they want 'no heroes' to apply to enemy units as well? Meaning the player can't earn them, and the AI has them removed if a scenario has been configured to have them?

Re: Playing Without Traits (exploits)

I wouldn't define them as exploits. That goes a bit too far. Exploit is a trait that increases prestige capture from hexes to be repeatedly, endlessly. It's not an exploit just to be a one time boost. That said, I'm pretty sure the philosophy is to mostly let players play as they choose. What else i...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

My wish is that in a future DLC we have options for more advanced supply systems. Say a map maker has to place specific off-map supply hexes. Maybe even add an additional mode of the game where supply falls off the further your units are from supply hexes, so as to simulate logistic problems that a...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

At least the upside is that we'll be able to cut the enemy's supply with ZOC's just like he's doing to us..:) That is the crux of the argument. It's not like this is a one sided effect. It affects all sides equally. It's not an unfair advantage, just a lack of understanding on the specifics of the ...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

No, lol, I don't work for the developers. In re the AI though - that's my point - only the AI part of my statement was specifically addressing the AI. In regards to multiplayer, you have to actually put forward an argument, not just say "CHANGE THIS NAO." WHY do you think the current system doesn't...

Re: Question

You could add it in either as a Commander Trait or a campaign modifier (like Guderian or the other 'challenge modes): "units don't surrender". That would get around the prestige bonus question and provide people the extra challenge they're looking for. :P It needs to be named the Taggart trait. Nev...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

It would be kinda nice to have more mechanics that played with supply though: #1 - having Transport Planes that can provide one-time "refreshes" inside of an encirclement - hyper-vulnerable to enemy AA of any kind and hyper-expensive. #2 - maybe have / create a non-combat unit that can chain supply...

Re: Question

Honestly, it's way, way too strong. Even in Poland North, the very first scenario if you go that way, you can easily get more prestige from this than from all the victory locations combined (you can get a total of 650 prestige from VLs, and rushing through the map because of Race Against Time I mad...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

I dunno, I find it quite clear and working excellently.

It's quite definitively laid out in this nicely produced clip, also available in the game's tutorial section.

Re: Question

As things stand now, you can get a prestige reward for an attack if enemy unit surrenders. Capturing huge amounts of enemy units is a massive swing in prestige, in addition to the extra equipment it awards. I almost wonder if it's too good. Right now I believe you get 100% of the cost of the unit (...

Re: Paratroopers ruin the game in MP

What I really want to see is the 'paratroopers so OP they are map breaking' crowd to have a discussion with the 'paratroopers are the most worthless unit in the game' crowd.

Re: Paratroopers ruin the game in MP

The game does not have a good set of garrison troops but bridge engineers are a good 'make do' substitute. Not every city, only supply hexes. You would think with the way people complaining about how OP supply hexes are, they'd properly garrison them instead of just leaving them completely empty an...

Re: 2 units attack together to prevent escapes

The solution is to make complete encirclement. If you can't then that's why the target may evade some attacks. That's normal. This is not a free movement, next turn the target willl have so less movement. While I absolutely endorse this solution, and have suggested in it other threads... There are ...

That's not a solution. You set overwatch and then attack with the first unit. Ok if it retreats... but if it doesn't you lose an attack.
It's a foundation of an idea, but clearly more would be necessary to properly implement it into this game. :wink:
