Re: USA early game against PE

Easy fix is what Warhawks mentioned, let the AT team be buildable when you get WSC. Doesn't change anything about high resource games, you can build a barracks, WSC, and motorpool from the very start. I'm sure the change from before had something to do with bazookas being able to shoot instantly and...

Re: flmaethrower like a hot water!!

The problem with Wasp, Crocodile Sherman, flamethrowers in general is range issues. Did you know that in BK the infantry flamethrowers are still using their max 20 range from vanilla company of heroes? So that means they have to get point blank to shoot any of their flame weapons, and we all know wh...

Re: Beta 5.1.5 v5

This is kind of off-topic but @Markr can you take a look at the Comet's upkeep? I remember there being a patch that made the Comet's upkeep way higher than it was before, but that was when it had it's super strong armor that could bounce shrecks and 88 shells. Now that it's a cheaper tank with cromw...

Re: Beta 5.1.5 v5

What you mean with "what they throw at you when you get them". At that stage i usually felt equal in numbers, if not quantitativ better for WH due to low upkeep. That "what they throw at you" is bc of the mixery of units CW and US field compared to the rather static and mirrored...

Re: Beta 5.1.5 v5

I don't have a problem with this squad except the stuff Champion mentioned. I never considered AT boys to be fine but if they are working in perfect condition to most, then there is not much to say about this squad. Are they more useful than the old pak 36? Yes. But it's not like they will go invisi...

Re: 5.1.5 Beta v4

I would like to add that the panzerbusche39 team gets a 1.25x accuracy and 1.5x damage increase when shooting from ambush; I.E. - buildings, trenches, whatever gives them camouflage to give them a first strike bonus. What this results in is it gives them just enough damage multiplication to oneshot ...

Re: 5.1.5 Beta v4

Putting it's weapon in "plane_weapons" category seems to fit this chaos lol. I presume you're talking about weapon file placement in the game folder...it is not in "plane_weapons" folder. :? Ah my bad, I'm the one who told him that. It turns out that if you view corsix like I do...

Re: 5.1.5 beta v2

Also afaik sandbags reduce accleration, not top speed or am i wrong? On the sandbags upgrade, it actually just reduces the speed by 25%. If what Markr said here a long time ago still holds: http://forum.bkmod.net/viewtopic.php?t=1771 - Sandbags I (Armor doc only): Shermans (M4, 76(W), E8, Crocodile...

Re: 5.1.5 beta v2

I haven't played the patch yet but a few things: Old speeds are back, which is great. I feel like the other speeds would take way too much effort to balance if you had to go down that path(because you would have to change how infantry work in relation to tanks as well). That 50% speed nerf to wheele...

Re: 5.1.5 beta version

But at this point i may ask. When corsix says for example that max speed is "5", when is that applied? On roads (red part of what tiger has shown us) or at the withe part of the map (neutral ground) and how are speed losses at certain terrain calculated? In percentage? Roads and negative ...

Re: 5.1.5 beta version

On realism, why not adjust the acceleration/deceleration of vehicles? In corsix, panthers still have an accel of like 1 to 2 while having deceleration of around 5. Meaning they reverse faster than they accelerate forward. Which doesn't model reality where panther had a reverse speed of 4 km/h. So yo...

Re: 5.1.5 beta version

How shall that plane work with its current rof? it would fire like 2 shots at the target location? if it works like a strafe the shots may also hit in front and behind the target. I would perhaps increase cooldown. So it becomes more a sort of a very very valuable ability that can change the game b...

Re: 5.1.5 beta version

On preliminary testing: The speed of these new vehicles is very good. Mines are actually going to be useful because roads are actually mandatory now rather than offroad tanks just backing up against a well laid ambush with the speed of a thousand suns(or just YOLO-advancing through it). Now infantry...

Re: [NEW MAP] Epic 2vs2

Giving it more thought, I'm beginning to see more clearly why late-games like these for infantry doctrine always end up having nothing to do with infantry at all. Look at the last 5 minutes of the game and count how many 76mm AT gun emplacements there are. Or how many US tanks/tank destroyers were f...

And Jumbo Sherman as backbone, main assault unit and game saver in the infantry doctrine for the americans.. idk how else thinks that the US design still has some flaws. Perhaps we add churchills to RAF doc as well in future. Or King Tiger to SE or whatever. The second flaw for US: There are just t...

Balance blues and other musings.

Coming back to BK I have tried to play every build I can do and these are the things I have made notes of and made my recommendations for balancing/suggestions: US: Captain call-in riflemen cost 300 mp, have 7 men, come with 2 BARS, and cost 18 to reinforce instead of 25 like a normal rifle squad do...

Re: General discussion on the recent balance

I would like to add something about Grenadiers since we are on the discussion of General Balance: Grenadiers are in a really bad spot for when you get them. You get them as soon as the Krieg Barracks finishes. But at that time you really need a 50mm pak, a Puma, or more Volks with LMG34s when you ge...
