Re: Please bring back aimtimes

Aim time should be another (very important) displayed stat for all units/weapon systems. "In the next Wargame, maybe," would be my guess though ;-) Too many (meta) balancing issues for too old a game at this point. I would love it very much though, it would open so many new possibilities, ...

Re: Some advice needed. General and specific.

One thing to note - ATGMs on vehicles are not worth their cost, save a few exceptions like TOW2 or Arkan. I'd do away with specialised ATGM vehicles completely. High accuracy (50+%) on infantry ATGMs might make it worth a slot, but that is it. Also, combat engineers and generally 5 men combat teams ...

Re: Helpful hotkeys for the game

Press shift while ordering troops around causes them to complete each order one by one instead of overriding each previous one. Also useful essential for having your infantry disembark their transports upon reaching designated location. Or planes following a certain flight path, although note that ...

Re: I'm fed up with my noobism

A lot of choices depend on whether you play conquest or destruction, and what income you tend to have. What you have here seems like going for a universal deck, tuned more for higher income games. My few notes: LOG: it is probably ok, though some games will reward command infantry more than twice th...

Re: Busan Pocket advise sought -- AI using an exploit?

AFAIK there is no reason in what you describe why you couldn't move on with your units to another sector. If you hold the sector "To XXXX" on the battle map, it should be possible to move in that direction on the campaign map. If it is not possible, I suspect a bug is at work. Sadly there ...

Re: The Save the Commonwealth thread

It was explained briefly in the vid but not demonstrated, long story short here's how it works; Lap loading is the process of taking a shell out of the ready use rack before/while the gunner is aiming and firing the gun, having a replacement round ready to hand when the gun is actually fired, speed...

Re: Marder 1 line

Within the 5pts system it is very difficult to do anything about Marder1AX price tags; I think they are priced and available quite sensibly. Plus most other ATGM equipped IFVs suffer the same problem. I my opinion the best way to make players really think about getting ATGM with their IFV choice is...
