Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

I also have a concern that isn't being addressed with these continuing updates. Okay so we got the hex grind... what about city and location names? I'm guessing we won't have text right on the map because that's not a Panzer Corps tradition, but I'm starting to wonder how it's going to work, because...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

While interesting, I am highly skeptical to the play-ability of random content. The last screenshot for example http://www.matrixgames.com/amazon/Screenshots/Panzer%20Corps%202/4Survival.jpg The northern French enemy is outrageously close to the player's central position. Not only do they have so li...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

If you really want to have a discussion on AI and what's wrong with Panzer Corps, you have to understand how it works. If you don't understand how the AI works in Panzer Corps, it will punish you absolutely mercilessly. The problem, believe it or not, is that the AI is too smart. And when I say smar...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Even something "obvious" as making enemy artillery actually start shooting (so the entrenchment levels drop) might have unforeseen - and unwanted - side effects. Remember you are among the top %1 players who know every trick in the book. But the game must work for the average player. An AI tweak th...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Hopefully The A.I. is some faster in Panzer Corps 2 - Order of Battle, Panzer Corps and also Strategic Command arent playable - to much waiting between turns. In other modern wargames you have to wait only 1-2 minutes. In OoB and Strategic Command it takes sometimes 20-30 min ! I think the devs hav...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

I can't speak for the strength or weaknesses of new Panzer Corps 2 AI yet, but I know how I'd like to proceed. I understand why people also want smarter and more challenging AI, but I have to be devil's advocate here and say that isn't really conductive to long campaigns, especially not Grand Campai...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

My question to the developers is - if there are going to be naval only scenarios, will it be possible to bypass them? I can't speak for any mainline campaign, but this is an interesting topic for me personally. As some may or may not know, I'm a big fan of what might be considered... controversial ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

And the point of slay the spire reference is that is absolutely sounds like what you're hoping for with strategic redeployment. You have a start and end point of your campaign. As you progress, you pick your path, and depending what route you pick, various random things can happen. Events and battle...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8 "Panzer Corps Commander"

Sounds fantastic! Besides, I have an "out of the box" idea and suggestion which is absolutely feasible and can be relevant to the whole game: It will be absolutely fascinating to have a large "strategic map" that enables players to "make decisions where to fight and how to proceed to his targets" t...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Keep up the great work Kerensky I'm really looking forward to this release, and agree with your suppositions BTW, are you getting in any BattleTech (PC) game time in doing all of this hard work? Thanks! But I'm afraid I can't take any credit for Panzer Corps 2 at this point. I'm just giving my feed...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

I think most would agree that repair adds strategic depth to PzC and it provides strategic tension between different options- when to withdraw damaged units from a fights to save them, whether to spend money on repairs, when to sacrifice units, etc. Going too far down the "historical" rabbit hole w...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Supporting this question: repairing a badly "wounded" ship of any sort could take longer than a scenario may last... I agree with this concern, but I would put forth it is the responsibility of the individual scenario and content creators (hi) to properly design scenarios that take the mechanics of...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Not a major thing, but I would like to see submarines get a special damage type too. Unable to submerge.

If I remember my history right, this was a big thing with anti-submarine warfare. Damaged subs that couldn't submerge were sitting ducks.

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Special damage Each point of damage done to a ship also gives a certain chance to cause “special damage” which affects the ship’s stats in various ways. Here are some examples of special damage: - Damaged turret – reduced naval/ground attack strength. - Damaged AA turret – reduced air attack. - Dam...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Christmas special! Dev Diary #7

Really nice look overall, agree. But I think you should do something about the graphic of the railways going over the mountains. Maybe a little tunnel or something. Looks a bit strange in the screenshot, that's all. Also, I would've liked to see how the bridges are done. Are they not ready yet or w...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Christmas special! Dev Diary #7

In dev diary #1 there is a clear red dotted line to indicate encirclement (along with a solid black for the fog of war). There has to be an indicator, or things would rapidly get confusing if, for example, you encircled units from a distance outside the fog of war- the enemy player wouldn't even kn...
