Satchel Charges and Flamethrowers

I'm overall very happy with infantry balance in the game, but the closer range you get the more stuff seems to break down. IMO these two types overall seem too powerful at the moment, especially the former. At close quarters, they do magnitudes more damage than any other weapon in the game to infant...

Re: Feedback: What Steel Division gets right and what it gets wrong

Stuff I like: 1. Off Map Artillery Barrage Attacks While off-map artillery itself is not so great gameplay wise, what I do like is the option to use various types of barrages and look forward to see if they can expand it while adding unique capabilities to certain artillery pieces (e.g. time on targ...

.50 caliber MG: should it have AP value?

The halftracks and other light vehicles in this game really don't have very spectacular armor. Realistically I think the .50 MG really shouldn't have trouble penetrating them at close ranges. It would be a nice feature to have, as a limited way to fight off enemy light vehicles. Right now halftracks...

Re: Air to Air Combat

As to point four, look up Operation Tidal Wave, the B-24s came in at a very low level there (average was 50 meters, which is even lower then planes are flying in Steel Division) and were fighting ground based AA and fighters at the same time throughout the battle. This sort of thing wasn't a regula...

Air to Air Combat

What do you think about air to air combat in this game? IMO it hasn't improved much from RD days. We end up having a system that is very micro-heavy, but really doesn't model air combat accurately either. I personally don't find it fun at all. This is what I see as the main annoying characteristics ...

Re: Historical accuracy

I feel they are going more for flavour than strict realism. Which I´m fine with, because in Wargame Red Dragon they kind of did the opposite and as a result made decks pretty bland: you either played the major factions with all the unicorns, or you got clobbered for playing specialized/non-major de...

Strange Falling Back Behavior

I'm very reluctant to fall back with troops, since they almost invariably choose to fall back in a different way than I want them to and never for the better. For example, infantry runs completely past a location with cover, choosing to run in one direction and getting shot in the back with MG rathe...

Re: 76 mm vs 17 pounder performance

I wouldn't be averse to seeing US 76mm's getting some love, all the American guns feel horribly aneamic when dealing with the present crop of Axis tanks, i shudder to think how hard they are going to struggle with penning tigers, though i guess they will be both rare and hugely expensive. Don't rea...

76 mm vs 17 pounder performance

Not going to start asking for balance or stat changes here but I'm curious about why the 17 pounder is immensely superior to the 76 mm. The 17 pounder gun approaches the Panther's in lethality with 17 AP to the far lower 13 AP of the 76 mm. Adding insult to injury, it enjoys even more accuracy. Is t...

Re: Allied vs Axis Air and Artillery Asymmetry?

Allied artillery doctrines would be represented by greater accuracy, which is a mixed bag if you are trying to use it to pin troops. Impression I got was that flexibility and lethality were superior also. Granted, I think overall I have been relying on my perception half-remembered articles I read....
