Maybe though the problem isn't as acute as the uselessness of the (widely used in real life) medium tank when compared to the heavy on every metric. The designers did an amazing job in adding the infantry / city+terrain dynamic to Panzer Corps which has significantly improved the game together with ...

The argument against using rate of fire to make the game better is "it will lead to confusion???". Well, that is a disappointing argument, I'm sorry. I mean, it is already used for artillery... Arguably, it should be added to the unit profile given that this stat is WAY more important than many othe...

Exactly - Tiger and IS-2 should be the rarities, not Shermans / T34s / Panzers. The latter were the mainstay. Adjust rate of fire down and this realistic scenario would result more often (or at least give the Panzer Corp commander an interesting "what if" choice). As it stands, the only rational thi...

I personally don't want to see much nerfs to the high end heavy tanks, these tanks should be able to be the kings of the battlefield. The King Tiger was truly a fearsome tank in terms of combat capabilities compared to a T34 or Sherman, in a straight forward one on one encounter. I personally think...

More follow on lol

The more you can add a "rock-paper-scissors" element, the better. It would be great to have strong merit in EACH category (which is almost there minus anti-tanks, and to a lesser degree, strategic bombers) and WITHIN each category (ie. it isn't obvious which tank you should buy, lots of variety in s...

Follow on

Making King Tiger 600 prestige with rate of fire of 5 would be very interesting too. Want to buy a Panzer for the same price that is more mobile, far more potent against transports, recon, artillery and anti air or do you want the thing that will kill 4 and lose 0 every time it shoots at a medium ta...

Perfecting the near-perfect game that is Panzer Corps

I'm wondering what ideas the design team is looking at for making the super tanks a little more defeatable. The terrain effects for infantry is an excellent innovation but the only annoying thing is how a group can take on a gazillion slightly lesser tanks rending the lesser tanks useless. I mean th...

Like the ideas but whatever suggestion used to beef up AT would require thought that the already powerful infantry may become all the more powerful. Or, if allowing embarking/disembarking on same turn is too powerful, maybe an adjacent AT unit could give support to your own units the same way artill...

Another alternative is to give them the "close defense" terrain quality that infantry have. As it stands, infantry are much better against the huge tanks than anti tanks are given the (very valuable) terrain effects. Seems that it would be fairly easy to make anti tanks useful by giving them very hi...

Seems that it would be fairly easy to make anti tanks useful by giving them very high initiative on defense but low initiative on attack, low defense and VERY high hard attack. This way when they attack, both tank and anti tank take huge losses, when they defend only the attacking tank takes heavy l...

Game freezing on MP load

Hello.

When I load a game that I am having, it freezes on the objectives screen that says "turn 11 of 27". Oddly I can exit the screen but can't play the turn. Any idea what is up?

The game is ruskicanuk vs. tmoj2000 Frozen North where ruskicanuk is Soviet.

I hope they do this soon. WoW has entire business model getting people to repeadily, mindlessly click the mouse over and over again because they captured the attractiveness of "levelling up". Starcraft has done the same with Battlenet. This game is simple enough to appeal to a large base and, with a...

My page on the Slitherine Website? I don't see the place to allow stats to be shown. Can you direct?

The claim button allows a player to claim victory in a match that has been left idle by their opponent for an extended period of time (30 days). There are plans for stat tracking, (wins, losses, games played, and maybe even ranks) but these have not yet been implemented. In point of fact actually, ...

Multiplayer Questions

Currently enthralled by the Multiplayer. I think if you guys could get the average gamer to somehow try out the multiplayer, you'd have a Starcraft-scale market (ok Im being dramatic, but still the MP is great). Great job to whoever designed the server setup to get it going. A couple questions. (1) ...

I like this also though it is a pretty big change to the basic game so I bet the designers will be loathe to adopt it. While I prefer the idea to have a 2nd right click to "commit" a move (again MP option only), I think the easiest short-term fix is to have a "disable undo" option for MP games (no n...

Downloading PC onto my other computer

I want to put PC on my desktop - how do I download the setup file without having to pay for it again?
