Re: Favorite Artillery unit

I adhere - admit: many PC units wont balance with WW2 equivalent units and the "hero"- pc-concept will not balance with WW2-equivalents either. I have an M2 Bergtruppen Inf. Unit - which sometimes has more move-hexes available than my tank-units...This game-actual balance will not have ended / found...

Re: Favorite Artillery unit

I have arrived at Escape from Stalingrad, nov.1942, on Rommel level, with: -3x 17cm K18: one M1, one M2 and last A2 heroes. M2 is a blast, able to follow most of my advances with a 3hex move and 4hex reach. -1x 21cm Mrs 18: A2 hero. Upgraded to 21cm to check differences between 21 and 17cm, which in...

Re: Wargamer PzC 2 first screenshots

From first looks it reminds me of PG3D. Problem for me is the attempt to combine a 3D map with oversized units. With 2D I have no problem with that (unit size fills a hex) since it feels like a pawn on a chessboard. With 3D this somehow does not "feel" right since the environment wants to give you a...

Re: Awful hard accomplishing Decisive Victories

Accomplishing decicive victories throughout 39-45 is a seperate challenge for some players, but in the Library one can find the victory needed to go further in the campaign. I have already learned to accept a marginal victory if going for the decicive costs too much damage to the core units. But it ...

Re: Ideas for Panzer Corps 2

If still taking suggestions for consideration: a more versatile map. At present we have the switch with F5, the birds eye view using the mouse wheel and the mini-map in the lower right of the screen. Id like to have the ability to choose my own setting + or -. The overal map using F5 does not show t...

Re: The Good Heroes, The Bad heroes and The Ugly heroes ?

I use the MPC 35-39 / 40 mod and until well into 1940 my infantry consists of 7x Kradschutzen. Best way of gathering heroes and then accordingly exchange them for other infantry.

Re: A better AI that trys to win not just delay!

That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if tweaking it wasn't in the cards for Panzer Corps 2. Giving it a memory about player units that are no longer visible but still not destroyed might be a good thing and can open up some new tactics. Yes, I remember two instances when I had blocked a road/br...

Re: The Elite Units Mod ----Patch 1.24 and LOV compatibility

Would like to have some response from users of this MOD of their opinion of which units you think are worth upgrading to the SS-equivalent. In other words - the SS versions do have upgraded options (+ ammo, etc.), but is it worth the extra cost for each unit? For instance: Im using the MPC 35-39 / 4...

Re: A better AI that trys to win not just delay!

No replies as of yet but I assume many PC players agree with this as I recall having seen similar requests elsewhere on the PC2 forum. Scripted massive kamikaze attacks are one the main topics for improvement. Although the strategic goals may stay be the same for the AI, one wishes different tactics...

Re: Things that I hope won't return with Panzer corps 2

I see no problem in recon capturing empty cities... many cities were left undefended in ww2 and forward moving recons in many cases liberated / captured cities / towns.

Re: The Good Heroes, The Bad heroes and The Ugly heroes ?

First time playing the GC. I got defense heroes in almost all my units, which was really annoying at first but I accepted it anyways. It seems, and correct me if I'm wrong, the AI avoids attacking my units that have defense heroes. It just moves its units up to my defense line and attacks only the ...

Re: Captured Units: Keep or Disband?

Im on my fifth Grand Tour of the East, using the MPC 35-39 mod that enables the game to start in 1935, which I think should be the proper time to start. It does give you a headstart when compared to starting in 1939 of course, which means that by that time I already have a line up of tanks with an a...

Limited dice chess always - played full random at the beginning years ago, but got frustrated (like others already mentioned) by the sheer unexpected and in more than enough cases, totally idiotic outcome of battles.

Re: Elite replacements in mission vs before mission

I usually keep my units at 11 strength except the vulnarable but indispensible Ju87s which stay at 12. A big drawback of PC1 is the inability to strengthen a unit just 1 or 2 points, which in numerous occasions could mean the difference between withdrawing a unit or let it continue to play a role in...
