Slightly off topic: I wonder how Panzer Corps would handle Panzer General style ZoC for planes. YOUR UNITS -A--A--A--A--A- Enemy Airforce (A=your airforce) Doesn't necessarily have to be a fighter doing the blocking. ZoC works like a shield. The perfect fighter cover. You would have to kill one of t...

Starting a campaign with the intention of losing!

Starting a campaign with the intention of losing ... or rather following history! That's what I did recently. I just want to play the Ardennes with my core units from 1939 instead of starting with the 1943 West campaign. Could you imagine a "follow history" campaign mode? I know a lot of players who...

I think I found a possible solution to make things more predictable without changing the entire system. But I am quite afraid of it, to be honest. Let me explain! :) "Fun" is unfortunately a rather weak argument as well. It is a thought-terminating cliché stating that the random results are not "fun...

I am afraid it isn't possible to make the "results more like the predictions". Part of the strategy in Panzer General is to be prepared for the unexpected. Both horrible losses and sometimes lucky victories. Darius III said the same at the Battle of Gaugamela, that rout was probably bugged and Alexa...

Focusing on your main issue: Yeah, I found Balaton also very hard to win. The thing is to get there you need campaign path wise a decisive victory at Overlord. But this will probably happen a lot if a player starts the 1943 West campaign and still manage to achieve a decisive victory at Overlord. Ma...

Not possible, not implemented.

But I would dare to say it might be an upcoming feature as many people requested it besides a more accurate strength point loss rather than unit kill counter.

The King Tiger issue reminds me a bit of balance in Street Fighter and certain moves that are considered imba by new players but rather a bad choice by veterans. More advanced players like Kerensky see their drawbacks of the King Tiger and know how to counter them, making them not so much of a probl...

I use and used almost exclusively Wehrmacht Infantry. (I am often torn in what I should upgrade my Gebirgsjäger in 1943 as Gebirgsjäger 43 have such a low hard attack.) My SS Infantry is a Grenadier. I don't use Bridge Engineers or Paratroopers. In some scenarios a Pioneer would have been useful, fo...

No, only different modifiers. Guderian lowers the number of turns you have to complete a scenario or to achieve a decisive victory Manstein sets enemy unit strength to 15 Rommel reduces your number of core units and prestige I am not sure which one is the hardest I personally think Guderian makes de...

Are you looking forward to Africa as well?

And just as I wrote "there is no mud in Africa" I wondered...
apparently in the real world rain can turn sandy terrain into terrible mud.

I wonder how it will be represented in Panzer Corps? And if there was ever mud in Africa in Panzer General.

I just tested this in the Germany scenario: Normal weather: ISU-122 vs Tiger II (river hex attack) -> -6:0 predicted Frozen/snow: ISU-122 vs Tiger II (river hex attack) -> -4:-1 predicted same result as if both fight each other in open terrain.

Karl, you will love it. I played the 1939 campaign, later the 1943 West campaign, some scenarios and again the 1939 campaign. Didn't do PBEM yet. But it seems to be wildly popular, the PBEM server was really slowing down the forums for a while! :))

You participated in the longish thread about the "overrun" ability for tanks and it somewhat surprises me that you still think it would be a good thing to have.

Maybe it is more a matter of timing. The battle of Kursk scenario is roughly 4th July till 20th July or even 23rd August. 9th July - 17th August is the time of the Allied invasion of Sicily. I quite liked to start the 43 West Campaign there, should have lost intentionally as Overlord isn't exactly w...

Well the P47N Thunderbolt in US East Coast can hold its own against Me262, especially due to the radar towers that give it an extra bonus. But comparing numbers in say the "Germany" scenario (start a hotseat match and compare) shows you that the Americans don't have SUPERIOR equipment. They just fig...

Yes, but it is unlikely that you will play it starting from 1939.

Why? -> open "Library" and see "Campaign Path" in the Panzer Corps main menu.
Basically, you must lose Sealion 42 to get to the "Italy" scenario. Kursk sends you right to the Gustav Line scenario (~"Anzio" in Panzer General).
