Re: 5.1.8 Beta: Airborne Updates

Please consider re-working airborne again. Right now there doesn't seem to be enough good stuff in it to warrant going for it over infantry or armor doctrine. My own idea was to make airborne a 'flexible defense/offense' doctrine where you can paradrop support units in to setup hard points on the ma...

Re: luft & ra beta

Can we give gebirgs a marksman ability similar to the one the british infantry section has? I always felt like this ability fit them the most and it could be a compensation for not being able to paradrop anymore. They cost pretty much the same as the hauptman heavy squad now and that squad comes wit...

Re: New Terror/Propaganda Doc: Volkssturm

I'm bringing this thread back because from the replays I've seen nobody gets the MP40's for the volkstrumm. What if we give it the same treatment that the fausts for volkstrumm got? Like they automatically get 2 MP40's when you unlock the ability. I remember Terror grenadiers automatically got 3 STG...

Re: CW rework

I'm wondering if it's possible to still have the original HQ Truck buildable from the new Brit HQ? It could act as a FHQ like how PE, US, WH have it when they garrison a building and upgrade it into a forward base. I know the HQ glider kind of already works like that but it would be nice to see the ...

Does anyone have a usable Panzer 2 model?

Preferably it would be the Panzer 2 Ausf. L "Luchs." Which could be used as an early tank coming out of the logistik kompanie for the new TH doctrine (which would be called something like 'Panzer Support Doctrine' instead). There's probably an easy way to gank a model from a game like Worl...

Re: Tank Hunter Doc Proposition

I'm thinking here that if you want to make this doctrine fun in the early game. You should have the naked hotchkiss come right out of the logistik kompanie without needing any fuel upgrades. It should be the earliest 'tank' available in the game. Give it HE rounds as an upgrade too or maybe lock HE ...

Re: Tank Hunter Doc Proposition

Tank awareness is a really weird ability because it doesn't fit BK's philosophy involving ambushes. Allied TD's can basically never 'ambush' a TH doc's tanks because they just need an infantry squad next to it and they can see hidden TD's through the fog of war and basically never confront them if t...

Rethinking Panzer Grenadiers

So I never really liked how Panzer Grenadiers are modeled in BK because they don't really act like 'Panzer Grenadiers' and more of a buffer unit that is a weaker version of Assault Grenadiers you are given in the beginning of the game. Their most important role is to actually build your base and whe...

Re: Blitzkrieg Doctrine Grenadier MP40 Stats

Ah right I'm not making sense because i didn't explain it properly. Basically: - Stormtrooper is deployed from building/off-map/halftrack they have mp40'S and STG44 for squad leader. - They get same amount of STG44 upgrades. Once they upgrade to STG44 it replaces the mp40 with the STG44. - So they s...

Re: Mortar smoke hability pool

Why not make the smoke ability fire forever until told to stop? This is kind of the case already as you can fire a smoke barrage again after it's done firing the first barrage. It just involves a lot of micro clicking which is hard for me to do repeatedly (and probably for everyone else).

Well, my problem with Stormtroopers is their starting loadout not matching what they are supposed to be. They are supposed to be 'assault' infantry but they start with bolt rifles and have to stay at ranged combat until they can upgade to MP44's. At least the CQC and infiltration Ranger squads start...

Re: Blitzkrieg Doctrine Grenadier MP40 Stats

Two things just to note: 1. Dropped mp40 values carry over so if the grenadier drops the "elite" mp40 then the unit that picks it up, like an engineer, will have elite mp40 stats also. Is that what you guys want? 2. This indirectly impacts the viability of stormtroopers, which has already...

Re: 50cals behind supply yards

I'd like it if 50cals for greyhound got delayed and they got HE rounds instead when you immediately build them. Always wanted a 37mm light vehicle with HE rounds and a 50cal on top. Would be amazing to use late game honestly. Maybe even give greyhound canister rounds like the staghound has it.

Blitzkrieg Doctrine Grenadier MP40 Stats

I've checked this again and it seems Grenadiers are using Volks MP40 stats for their weapons instead of having their own MP40 which should have higher accuracy stats and stuff. Reason I think they should have their own MP40 with higher accuracy stats is because the Thompson in BK which is regulated ...
