Change to the initiative mechanic in Panzer Corps 2?

Post by Longasc » Sun Mar 08, 2020 5:55 pm

In Panzer Corps and Panzer General Initiative + a random factor determined which unit shot first.

I read/watched some info about Panzer Corps 2 that Initiative gives an "attack bonus" of some kind, which sounds quite different from how initiative worked in Panzer Corps 1.

Can someone please clarify?

In the Beta I had an exchange with Rudankort where he described Init working as it does in PzC.
There comes a time on every project when it is time to shoot the engineer and ship the damn thing.

Thank you, dalfrede!

It seems QUITE some Youtubers and games magazines got it wrong, and apparently quite a few just copied that description of the mechanic from someone. No idea who was the first to spread this wrong info.

But because I am in a good mood I won't go Stuka dive bomber style on a rules&mechanics rant on their channels, that would see no end. Did you know that units in forests have a higher base "engagement" level? More excited for battle because of the lovely nature, I suppose! :) Nobody needs entrenchment when you can have engagement! Aaattack!

I am very excited and can't wait, will probably check already at Wednesday midnight to Thursday, but afaik Steam releases usually in the evening of the mentioned release day. I also plan to send co-workers trying to foil my Panzer Corps 2 plans with sudden and unexpected problems that require me to work longer to Siberia or the bottom of a lake.
