The statement below is his:

Every unit has a place and a value that an asset that either has not been discovered and utilized or is being overlooked in favor of other units.

So, if I am still learning things about units even know after over 2300 hours of gameplay than this emphasizes to me that this game has no useless units only useless players.
This is an indefensible statement, and his defense, that despite having 2300 hours of experience he still repeatedly uses the word unit when he means class, is laughable. It's pretty clear he actually was talking about individual units, such as in the middle statement. He could have simply accepted that he his statement was indefensible and apologized for calling other players useless. He didn't have the maturity to do that.

I am a little confused here...
Did you take my comment personally? If so why?

I was posting about what the general topic was about.
Yrfin originally posted

Then he proceeded to list out "classes", so I made a post with that general theme in mind.

What exactly did I say that offended you directly, Proline?

I generally try to keep my posts and feedback positive and helpful, so I am really confused at all the hostility.

There are no useless units in the game.

First of all: lets not carry our battle-attitude from the game into discussions ;-) - written words have a tendency to look more harsh than spoken ones :-)

Two important words are missing from the statement above: "for me" - I dont think there exist definite statements when speaking about personal preferences.
In three years of PC I never use strategical bombers, because they take up precious fighter protection and I just keep one for naval battles.
And, like other before me have mentioned, towed AT for me is a useless weapon, because of lack of movement and armor.
Good recon is essential for me until 1944, when defense is more important - and again for reasons others already mentioned.

I dont care about yours replays. I have Panzer Corps Scenario Editor (Its legal). It good enouth for me.

also if you find any Lancaster in the replay that would be some mayor achievement

and Axis troops entering Baghdad can't be historic in any way so what ?

Closest i can think of when it come to useless unit is the stationary AT.
From 1943 and on i find no room for them in my army.

Could be that i use them wrong or never learned to use them properly, but the ones i got is for flavour only.
From 43 to 45 its all about Tanks and AT's packing 88's and being able to deploy and redeploy fast.
