Re: Developers should show something new

Just a bit more patience guys, please :D we'll have something to show very soon. This is becoming somewhat ridiculous. The game was announced almost a year ago and there are no timelines for the launch. I like to pick a game and then stick to it for a considerable time while mastering every detail....

Re: About the Mac version

Can someone report when the Mac version actually WORKS. Having been burned by OOB, I don't want to deal with a game full of bugs.

Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gamep

[61] You are not able to cut off greater enemy forces from his back in the PzC, so breaking through in the operational scale and acting on the enemy's rear will give you nothing. My point, exactly. I also like "If the supporting unit is adjacent to the attacking unit, the current -1. If it's to the...

Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gamep

I do NOT want to see crap like line of sight, armor facing and other stuff that might make sense on a tactical level but makes absolutely ZERO sense on the level of abstraction that Panzer Corps is at. While I agree with the LOS comment, I do not understand why is there so much opposition to "armor...

Re: Just casual talk about infantry, grenadier and volksstur

Oleh Dir is a beast as Pioneer - and overstrengthed. When assaulting, he is basically my main effort. Thinking back, I can't even remember how many times he has delivered breakthroughs against heavily fortified positions (I am late '44 Eastern front). Oleh Dir is so good under every circumstance th...

Re: Mac

Have you considered using a Wine wrapper to port PzC 2 to the Mac and Linux. My wineskin port works better than the Mac Beta does :D . And it only took a week to get the display options right. Thanks for the info, never heard of this before. Unfortunately, checked it, and it doesn't work for OS 10....

Re: Mac

In theory, making Mac version should be straightforward, considering that Mac is a desktop platform similar to PC, and our code is cross-platform. But we cannot promise it before we try it. It wold be critical for Mac users like me. For PzC, I had to keep an old PC dedicated pretty much just to the...

Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gamep

Also agree that mechanised infantry (and other units in transport) needs a rethink. They're just too squishy in the game, their theoretical advantage in mobility is very much hampered by their vulnerability while in transport mode. While they certainly were more vulnerable in a tactical sense, this...

Re: The Impressions of a Long-Time Panzer Corps Player

Thanks for the feedback. I guess one has to play the game for a while and decide (buy one DLC). What is discouraging is that there are much less information on forums how to play than for PzC, for example. I am against spoilers, but reinventing the wheel in terms of game mechanics is very tedious. F...

Re: The Impressions of a Long-Time Panzer Corps Player

Well, I found this a very appropriate topic, so I'm using the old original post to reply, but really ask questions before I commit to this game... Even though I'm late to the party, I'd appreciate some feedback in terms of comparing this to PanzerCorps, which I have played extensively for 4 yrs (fin...

Some of this has been mentioned, but I will add my 2c what I think matters: 1) Better AI - already an often mentioned topic. However, this is the mother of all improvements.

A Heretical Question

After going through all scenarios and a number of mods and thousands of hours on PzC, is there a recommendation for another game that would be a nice change for someone who loved PzC?

Re: Battlefield Europe - Best Mod so far for me

OK, finally got a few minutes to provide the epilogue in 1944. There is not much to learn here, as it is mostly a grind to finish off the British. One lesson is that the foray into the N. Atlantic after the battle for Gibraltar was a waste of time, as I have pointed out earlier. It is better to conc...

Re: Soviet Corps on Zhukov Difficulty

I think it is hard to recover from losses on Zhukov. It kind of snowballs. I tried that in the Afrika Korps playthrough and finally had to give in and go back to 2nd offensive where I did not get the additional Italian units. I could not do it without them and a loss on many missions ends the campa...

(B) Capture Crimea and commence Fall Blau - clear Soviets West of the Don, make a strong push South ...
