more or less "our great military of revolutionary Baekdusan [spirit] will mercilessly crush the nuclear war agitations of the invaders with our own nuclear blade of justice" the language is laughable at face value, just as goofy as it is in English, and, more seriously speaking, I think i...

6 shells in a minute, with set-up time of about 1:50 seconds.

Re: [DevBlog #04] Three-Phase Gameplay

Id love to see an article describing all of your lessons learned from the wargame series and the steps you took to rectify them. That would be a very interesting look into game design.

2. Go to war beforehand

In Wargame, each counter attack needs to annihilate every piece of defending infantry, especially for the key downs defending a points zone. But, in Steel Division, a counter attack may hit anywhere on the line and eliminat...

Though, the single building occupancy mechanic may break down in a small town.
