Trying to understand Panzer General 2

Post by NBAR8265 » Mon Feb 18, 2019 9:27 am

Hi

So trying to figure out these issues, playing a German forces in East
1/why is my artillery so useless, 8" shell should decimate any Infantry in open and at least damage most tanks ( plunging shot weak armour on top ) lucky if I get a -1
2/ Russian Infantry taking out Tiger Tanks in open, come on no way could that happen must have had some pretty awesome anti tank missiles
3/ Cavalry defeat tank yea right man on horse defeats man in tank
4/ Radar how do the Russians keep finding my damaged units when I take to rear they shouldn't be able to see them
5/ T34/76 taking small hits from Tiger Tank really

I,m thinking next time I play this just have lots of cavalry & base infantry , no wait if I use my Panzer Grenadiers against a Russian tank they die

Is this game rigged so you can't win ?

Welcome to the forum, allow me to ask: do you mean Panzer General 2 or Panzer Corps 2?

For sure you know that Panzer Corps 2 hasn’t been released yet… so I am not sure this sub-forum is the right place for your questions?

Maybe better to try here, i.e. to have higher chances to receive some answers:

Sorry Peter
Panzer Corps 2
Just doing Seelow Heights, frustrating when a Tiger at 6 gets destroyed by Infantry even after being hit by arty. I usually keep arty just behind my tanks but this is becoming redicules when Russian Infantry in open can badly damage or destroy tank. I have tried same with Panzer Grenadier and they get smashed,
Arty with Inf in open especially the 21Cm should decimate any Inf in open & even do damage to tanks. At moment my Art seems to be a waste of space

Not sure, sounds like they were suppressed and then surrendered? Do you have a replay or a screenshot maybe?

Nah

The suppression should be on the Russian Infantry attacking me
IE AL move, Tiger Tank in open at 6 gets bumped by Russian Infantry, first artillery ( nice spread of 8" shells ) bounce of Infantry in the open, then they proceed to destroy tank. Funny considering said infantry didn't have anti armour weapons and in open v's a tank. I don't think even modern Infantry would attempt this

PS ( I was an Infantry soldier and know what it takes to take out a tank )

And what is with SMG Infantry so they have a Section Machine Gun still not much against a tank
Even more funny is T34/43 badly damaging Tiger

Most of my units I have had from beginning and upgraded so they have experience. When I check the AL Tank "new" so I should destroy them easily

Seems as though all my units have become idiots and weak armour in last year, before then they would destroy a T34 easily

Not sure but is there a program in the Russian AL that makes then suddenly better ?

Just very frustrating watching infantry behave like heavy armour and inflict more damage than a IS 1 or 2

For Panzer General 2 this is the wrong forum.
For Panzer Corps 2, this is the right forum, but the game is not out yet.
For Panzer Corps, this is the wrong sub-forum (see link above), but I can offer some advice:

You can press L after combat to see the details. So next time something similar happens you can check if you missed an important detail or just had back luck. Posting a screenshot from that dialog might get you more help.
In the game options, you can select an option for "Combat Random" that reduces randomness.

Very good idea, you should get a screen like this:

Lmao.
Had a hard time grasping reality reading the original post.

I am either a couple decades back in time, or a couple years ahead of time.
