Units You Never Buy

I find many units are simply too specialized to be generally useful and thus not worth the resource investment. For example, I personally avoid using 1. Engineers; this one might be controversial. Yes, I know they have a multitude of uses, but the problem is that they suck at actual combat against o...

Re: No Rhyme/Reason to Elite Replacements???

I always use Elite repair personally. It leaves me very short of RPs most of the time but the poor enemy units just don't stand a chance by the end when they're facing all 5 star units. 5 star heavy tanks might as well be made of Titanium.

What is the highest amount of damage a unit can inflict in a single attack?

This question popped into my head yesterday when I saw this: https://i.imgur.com/Dk5m7AE.jpg This Japanese tank unit lost 9/10 hit points in a single hit from my Churchill, a damage number so rare I couldn't even remember if I'd seen it before. Normally it can't do that, but I had the tank commander...

Re: A Noob vs Japan

The Battle of Midway Despite the victory at the Coral Sea, the initiative was still with the Japanese - the Kido Butai still fielded 5 fleet carriers, while we were down to 3. A replacement for the Lexington - the new carrier Essex - would not be available until next year. One or two large battles ...

Re: Australia Needs a Campaign

Major impediment for an Australia DLC right now is that the ANZACs fought in a lot of theaters, which means enemy units and terrain and so on must be available in the game and editor first (Wehrmacht, Japanese, UK, italian etc). If at all, an Australia campaign can be available only after some othe...

Australia Needs a Campaign

I know, I know, everyone wants Endkrieg or a Soviet campaign (and I even agree on a Soviet campaign) or something, but hear me out. OOB has started to fall into the Panzer Corps/Panzer Generals trap of making everything about commanding Nazi armored forces. I get it's very popular, but I thought the...

Re: A Noob vs Japan

The Battle of the Coral Sea Admiral Clarke would not have long to wait before testing his mettle against the Imperial fleet. The Japanese Fleet had been in the Indian Ocean, but Sigint determined they had returned to the Pacific and would be escorting an invasion fleet headed for Port Moresby; an a...

Re: A Noob vs Japan

The Marshalls-Gilberts Raid War Plan Orange-3 was doomed from the start; while the MacArthur still attempted, and failed, to use it, the Navy had no intention of storming across the Pacific to his rescue. Thus, as our men were wiped out at Bataan, our naval forces were given a more minor, and certa...

Re: Tips for new and old players alike - turn your game around if you're having problems!

I have generally taken a hindsight-based, post-WWII view of AT; namely, it's largely irrelevant when you could just have another unit of tanks, which are more versatile, instead. I generally use attack groups of infantry (number varies) following a tank unit and backed by an artillery unit. I agree ...

Re: US unit wishlist

I still don't quite understand why this game has multiple classes of every ship except Light Cruisers.

So yeah. Different CL classes.

Re: A Noob vs Japan

Battle of Bataan No one was under any illusions. When everything was withdrawn to Bataan, it was not because we would be able to hold out there. The Japanese were simply too powerful - they had overwhelming air, armor and artillery support. The amount of firepower they could bring to bear, and the ...

Re: Vote for next dlc

Soviet Grand Campaign definitely, I'm surprised (although, at the same time, maybe not) we have 4 German campaigns and not a single Soviet one.

Also Korea. I feel it's close enough in the timeline (everything but the planes are basically the same) to not be out of place

Re: A Noob vs Japan

War Plan Orange-3 As the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, they simultaneously (though it was December 8th there) invaded the Philippines. MacArthur's airforce was destroyed on the ground, leaving only our 3rd Pursuit Squadron able to oppose the Japanese bombers. Our corps had been forward-deployed t...

A Noob vs Japan

Short backstory: I used to prefer real-time strategy, but I never liked the feeling of being rushed; my mind simply doesn't work fast enough. So last year I thought I'd try my hand at turn-based, and since I'm a WW2 buff, that is the first thing I went looking for, and since OOB is the newest WW2 he...
