  • I don't get how anyone can manage to lose anything heavier than a medium tank to a Raketenwerfer. The T-34 and Sherman will literally ruin it by themselves.
  • @38Lightning said: I play a lot of USF and yes dealing with mg guns is harsh. DO NOT use mortars pump out about 3 rifleman and lieutenant [/quote] You're doomed with this configuration frankly. For starters, precisely nothing Wehrmacht ha…

  • Conscripts perform very well when an Axis player lets them. If you're playing against Soviets and you fail to match Conscripts on a near 1:1 basis with MG42s or Volksgrenadiers you're doing it wrong. A seventh man won't change that.
  • I literally do not understand what we're fixing or imbalancing by taking Con squads up to 7 men. In my opinion it will not substantially alter how Soviets play and are played against. If you're using your Cons to screen then a 7th man does nothing, …
  • You're forced to go T2 by literally every kind of infantry in the game except for USF because they are the only faction that can crack and kill HQs at T0. Everyone in the game relies on infantry to do too much with too little. I watch replays all th…
  • I despise it. As OKW I have used it only very rarely but it cannot even defend itself so any population it uses up, any at all, is not worth it to me. I like the abstraction and I like the mechanic behind it but as a unit it doesn't fit the game ba…
  • I can't say for certain myself, and really I don't think anyone can. It's merely my own opinion that of all of the factions, all of which I have played substantially in 1v1 (so there's the context), Soviets are the easiest faction for me to play. Wi…
  • I'm going to go against the flow here or "accepted" line of thought about Soviets again and point out that actually the best time to upgrade to the PTRS is when the heavy armor shows up. Light tanks really aren't worth expensive Penals and their exp…
  • Conscripts die fast to most late game infantry, but the point has always been moot to me. By late game you should be replacing your Con squads 1:1 with T-34s as fuel becomes more available. If you ever have any Conscript squads around after the 30mi…
  • Conscripts are weak, it's almost their job to be weak. They're literally the bottom tier rifle infantry squad in the game because it's not actually their job to over match anything. No Comrade, that is the job of the Maxim or Mortar team you are kee…
  • Im not particularly impressed by the M8 Scott myself. I guess it can double fairly well as an assault gun, but it just lacks the punch USF stuff needs late game to crack Axis docs involving trenches and emplacements. It seemed more like a vehicle fo…
  • I used to feel like emplacements were op too but tbh, now they're why I always carry an LefH 10.5 in my commander trees for both factions. Area artillery will ruin a sim city and force the British player to operate outside of his own artillery umbre…
  • Panzerfussiliers had a point?
  • I always thought a G43 upgrade would make more sense than an StG upgrade. Assault Pioneers already bring assault rifles to the field.
  • There are circumstances where Conscripts can be your fighting infantry, it's just that they're very narrow and most Axis players don't run a strat that leads into that. Basically in order to justify running more than three Conscript squads the Axis …
  • One of them does not achieve much by itself. If you've let a USF player put more than 2 or 3 on his line you need to control the ammo points better.
  • Grenadiers and Volksgrenadiers both have access to a "bag of tricks" that far exceeds their face value. They're super adaptable units that simply don't end up in situations they can't reply to like Allied units do. Enemy spamming light armor? Faust …
  • For 70 muni it should have some kind of special ability again. Something like Rear Echelon Volley Fire if not exactly that. It won't pin enemies but it will suppress them and this would go a long to finally providing rifles some late game edge again…
  • Just make the STG upgrade cost more. Its so affordable now that you literally have no reason to pass on it. OKW players with almost no control of a map's ammo points are usually able to standardize it among their Volk squads before mid-game is up an…
  • Amateurs roll Tigers, Pros roll Command Tanks.
  • But the Bren Carrier can be garrisoned too and has no fuel cost. If token costs were applied broadly and not just left off of some units that would honestly make more sense than it does now.
  • It always shouldve been a commander call in. Why is the KT built into the OKW in such a way that the Tiger, Pershing, and IS2 aren't?
  • I can get behind both munitions cost or shot blocking sight limitation. Its another OKW unit running on a super abstract mechanic. Like the Raket it's liable for abuse. Also what is it with the token fuel costs? How come the USF truck costs 20 …
  • The end result is the same, the Luftwaffe just inflicts more losses on B-17 squadrons before being worn away through the constant attrition of fighting and impending defeat on the Eastern Front. Total victory of the kind Hitler envisioned was out…
  • It's the single most broken mechanic in the game. Easy fix is to either knock them down to a 3 man crew or restrict camo to veterancy.
  • I like Penals myself but I agree with removing their sticky satchel. The contortion of the gameplay mechanics to fit how over powered it is (only sticks to vehicles for an unlock lol) implies that it's just broken. I could see it being relevant by …
  • USF has fewer problems against soft enemies than hard ones. Main issue for now is that the BAR is overpriced. Performance wise it's acceptable. The Browning is acceptable although it should come with a special ability for what it does. I believe it …
  • Considering the much lower throw weights, range, and actual number of tubes than peer Allied Armies that is objectively false. Many German field howitzers were of pre war vintage, some Great War.
