What Order to Play

Post by okiemcguire »

I know this may seem rediculous, but what sequence would you recommend playing all battles to date. I know, I saw some of the arrows guiding you, but….

(US core) Boot Camp -> US Pacific
(JP core) Morning Sun -> JP Pacific (very easy with imported core)
(GE core) Blitzkrieg -> Panzerkrieg -> Endsieg
US Marines
(FI) Winter War
(GE) Kriegsmarine (optional, as not the greatest campaign experience)
(UK) Burma Road
(GE) Sandstorm (core can be exported to Endsieg)
(SU core) Red Star -> Steel -> Storm
(UK+CA+US core-mix) Allies Defiant -> Resurgent -> Victorious

As new content is more likely still patched than old one, it’s better to start with older releases.
The order above should give enough variety and learning experience with the official content.
If a core is mentioned then you can save your units at campaign end and take it over to the next one. You still have to repurchase (possibly with cheap upgrade) them in the next campaign though but with experience.
Don't ignore there is also custom content including large campaigns made by hard-working forum users here!

Thanks Horst… that helps. It makes sense about playing older releases first.

Eh how do you get a Blitzkrieg core imported to Sandstorm?

That I know , I was wondering if I had missed something as Horst wrote with or without a Blitzkrieg core.

It would have been nice to have the opportunity to leave Blitzkrieg at some point and be able to join Sandstorm with his Blitzkrieg Core.

Oh yes, I mixed up the core export there. It's from Sandstorm (31.03.1941 -> 05.05.1943) to Endsieg (18.07.1943 -> 21.05.1945). Blitzkrieg goes from 01.09.1939 to 15.12.1941. Fall Rot ends 20.06.1940 what would be the theoretical core export time-jump to Sandstorm, as Yugoslavia already starts 06.04.1941.
