Re: Kiev43 - How to get a DV?

The only thing I find slightly annoying about this scenario is when the AI starts pumping out IS-1 like there is no tomorrow.

Re: Prestige Soft Cap

The soft cap does not encourage players to use cheaper units on a wide scale but prevent players from overstrengthing their units to 15. In in the late GC (mid 44 and 45) you really need to rely on the Tiger II as tanks because those heavy 10+ Soviet tanks with their massive experience are too tough...

Re: which infantry do you prefer (pre-1943)

Any hero with a movement bonus I usually turn into Grenadiers. In the late game these guys just cause absolute havoc to tanks in close defence hexes. I also make sure to have around 2 Pioneers. Oleh Dir is always my first option. This guy is just a one man army on steroids.

Re: Dratz! Did it again... What mistake you keep repeating?

Using my fighters for some recreational strafing to knock one point of a randon unit, but seeing they will also then damage me, and then still press the fire button. Trigger happy and dumb in equal measures. I do that a lot too, it's a bit like my finger is glued to my left mouse button and won't l...

Re: Will this Unit Deployment Reap Max Prestige?

Maximum prestige in a given scenario usually involes a DV and makeing sure you units take as little damage as possible. I recently finished the grand campaign on Rommel and from my experience: - Upgrade your SE units to Tiger 1 and later Tiger II. SE units do not effect the soft cap and even Panther...

Re: Tiger v Panther v Mark IV

The Tiger has more armour then the Panther which really pays off from 44 onwards. I only upgrade tanks to Panther if they got a decent def. hero bonus.

Re: Specifi dlc 42 after Stalingrad question:

Yeah Tatinskaya is one of the real hard ones but probably my favourite too. Most of your units will take quite some damage, that is just unavoidable. I still found Stukas to be really useful in getting those pesky tanks down.

Re: Specifi dlc 42 after Stalingrad question:

I'd say breakout is by far easier and besides after Stalingrad docks I am usually tired of urban warfare. The breakout scenario has a lot of enemy planes so you need quite a bit of air defence otherwise the strafing fighters might eat up some of your prestige.

Re: Units I have learned to love

I really started to like StuGs either as AT or their artillery counterpart. The StuG III do last a long time and can later be transformed into StuG IV which are very decent artillery units. Whenever I get a range hero bonus on an artillery unit I turn them into a StuG IIIA, especially in scenarios l...

Jagdtiger HA value

For some reasons I only just noticed today that the Jagdtiger(12,8-cm-PaK 44) only has a hard attack value of 21 in comparison to the Elefant and Jagdpanther (8,8-cm-PaK 43) which both have an HA value of 24. Does anyone have any idea what is the reasoning behind that since the 12,8-cm-PaK 44 had a ...

Re: Achievements for Panzer Corps

I would appreciate if there would be a new game mode for it which does not allow modifcations done to any files nor access to any in game cheats, otherwise some achievements might just be pointless.

Re: Prestige Soft Cap

The settings are in the main gamerules file, they are not in the DLC files, but you can add them there and they will override the main settings. If I open gamerules.pzdat in Excel, lines 63 through 68 deal with the softcap. The settings in the stock file are: UseSoftCap 1 (set to 0 to disable the s...

Re: Prestige Soft Cap

I did not know about these settings. Do I need to add them manually since I don't see them in the gamesrules.pzdat file. I also did not know that SE are not affected, thanks for that information. Nevertheless I just wish the game would show the average value of a players core force during deployment.

Has anyone played under the new rules through the Eastern DLC and what are your thoughts about the prestige soft cap? When I first read about it on the beta forum a while back I thought it sounded like a really good idea but now haveing played through the DLC I am not so sure about it. I actually re...

Re: Do you use recon and anti air units in the GC?

I think it really depends on the difficulty setting. I usually play with 50% prestige for myself and since 1.21 I found AA units really valuable. Overstrengthing units to 15 is just no longer an option and what is really hurting in the GC from 43 onwards are the strafinig enemy fighters. Being able ...

I found strafing quite useful. It's good for finishing units of and reducing entrenchment.

Sorry but your post makes no sense to me unless you're nitpicking. It does not matter if it was a patch or a so called Beta - this is about the lack of information in general regarding 1.20 and the subsequent BETA. Happy?
