Bayonne

Bayonne While I didn't bother trying to save the trains for the DV, since the engineers attacking them went from four to nine strength, I did destroy all ground units and take all flags. Took a bit more damage than needed, but not enough for a restart. Over the next couple of scenarios you're gifte...

God Bless you for doing this Huckc, this will help me a ton when I get there. I may ask you to send me the replay's to my email when/if I get there finally. ;)
Sure, I'll send them all over after each campaign.

St Nazaire

St Nazaire The focus here was re-capturing flags primarily by breaking through the enemy front to the north, letting them capture most of those flags, then swooping back down. Due to the 1000 prestige "bonus" and all the flag income it's important here to limit over-strength for the soft cap. https...

Grand Campaign West 42-45 (Ultimate)

Grand Campaign West 42-45 (Ultimate) The focus will be maximizing prestige and getting marginal victories. If all goes well the campaign itself will end in a dubious victory on the Elbe. Due to time restrictions I will be re-using my '41 core from here . Maybe if I was in prison or laid up in a hos...

Re: SE question.

Even from a prestige maximization standpoint I'd probably keep the SE Bf-109k due to the insanely good hero and how it bumps the plane's stats to somewhere between a Fw-190 and Me-262 in terms of performance. Therefore it's essentially a ~575 prestige unit saved from the soft cap with the cheap repa...

Re: Messina.

The fighter alone is almost worth it over the points. It has an amazing hero (+4 Def?) and a permanent +2 free over-strength.

Also, both planes are much better than what's currently available.

So I'd keep the planes...or perhaps there's a way to have both :wink:

Re: Problem with Grand campaign core transferring

Transferring from 43 East to 44 West is not possible without hacking one of the game files but 44 East should let you no problem. Did you finish 43 on the same computer? The game creates a special save file locally which is needed to transfer, check to see if that file exists under: C:\Users\[name]\...

Re: At what time should you be content with your (infantry) unit(s) heroes?

I don't farm and I doubt the optimal approach even favors that for most units, except of course if you enjoy it then absolutely farm away :D All infantry heroes are useful and any unit receiving their first hero is always closer to a second hero than a new unit. There's a minimum amount of kills for...

Historical Hero Recap ('44)

+6 def, excellent. A turn of city entrenchment at 5-star gives him a defense rating of 26 against artillery. Very useful in Berlin.

Re: New Campaign Idea?

Not sure if it's an issue but at -75% experience you will stop gaining experience after 4-stars in GC East for many, if not all engagements due to the campaign's exp modifier. Also probably at 2 or 3-stars occasionally. Regarding enemy over-strength, I actually think it enhances the game, partly due...

Re: Yours favorite movies about WWII

Catch-22 is a bit outlandish for my tastes but has some gems in it for the ww2 buff. It's unique in being centered around a B-25 battalion doing tactical level-bombing rather your typical four-engine B-17 or B-24 fare. It's also on hulu which is much more accessible than HBO. If you're not in the US...

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

Going to town on enemy aircraft with your AA is one of, if not the most, satisfying parts of the game imo.

The skill of predicting AI behavior and creating air traps with them is also really enjoyable to deploy.
