May need to stop playing

So, Steam support are no good. Most recent problem is them spamming me with emails, and their unsubscribe is broken, and theyu're asking me to do work to try to figure out how to fix or work-around their broken web-page. I've just about had enough of them. Everything with them is hassle and trouble....

Re: Worthless Wasp

Change decisions mostly lean on the conservative side of things, preferring to do nothing, this is to allow let the community find in game solutions first and exhaust their options before concluding that change is needed. My approval or disapproval is neither here nor there, but I fully and deeply ...

Re: Flamethrower vs entrenched infantry

I think I have solution for this whole problem. Its very easy and convenient. If you play against AI then push pause button and this will switch the game into "active pause" which means the whole game is stopped but you can still give orders and look all over the map at the same time. Whe...

Re: Flamethrower vs entrenched infantry

Re: Flamethrower vs entrenched infantry

I don't know if I finally understand what you mean. Well, that's an improvement at any rate over you thinking I want to avoid having to use AT! :-) Now it seems to me that you have a problem with the damage system (being too punishing) in combination with the limited view on the map - due to the in...

Re: Flamethrower vs entrenched infantry

Re: Flamethrower vs entrenched infantry

I use the tac map (num 0) and use it religiously. That helps me keep awareness. I will try using it more and see how it goes. I feel like this isn't a UI issue because like any strategy game, awareness and focus is a big part. In most things, there are factors which encourage and there are factors ...

Bren Carriers with mortars

There was in WW2 a common variant of the Bren Carrier which was equipped with a two inch mortar.

How about it?

Re: Flamethrower vs entrenched infantry

If you have a shrek in the trench, you'll be fine. If you have an AT gun overlooking the trench you'll be fine. If you have mines in front of the trench you'll be fine. I may be wrong, but I think you're conflating operating the game wih playing the game. The UI should ideally be wholly neutral. It...

Re: Flamethrower vs entrenched infantry

how can you not notice a flame bren gets so close to your trench? It takes a couple of seconds for a Bren to come from out of vis into firing range. If you're not looking at that part of the map in for those couple of seconds, you don't see it happen. So idk how such a thing can "suddenly"...

Flamethrower vs entrenched infantry

As you know recently flamethrower damage vs entrenched infantry was increased and now wipes the entire squad pretty much in one go. I'd like to argue against this, for practical reasons, rather than realism reasons. I play PE TD a lot and so no bunkers and so my version of a bunker is a trench with ...

For the first time EVER, I saw the AI build a forward airborne HQ!

Unfortunately, it was built in their base start area.

But it's a start!

Re: Weapon choices for PE AG

They would be doctrineless; you can take them without a doctrine. I'm an idiot. I said doctrine but I meant army. My point in general is when it's possible to have wide-ranging configurations, then you can be many things, and so the difference between higher level, less flexible constructs goes awa...

Re: Weapon choices for PE AG

You can satisfy most peoples playstyles in this way. Guys who like to micro more can play with smaller squads. Guys who don't like working their finger bones too much because it will cause injuries later can get the 2 squad size upgrades from the beginning and play PE as it was. I may be wrong, but...

Re: Weapon choices for PE AG

Re: Weapon choices for PE AG

Yeah I would like to see smaller inf squads for PE so they aren't so catastrophic to lose. I've seen games where a PE player lost his entire Panzergrenadier squad to something like a single mortar shell within 5 minutes and he never came back from it. But how does that work when it comes to the cos...

Re: Weapon choices for PE AG

The basic grens should be able to get more than 2 G43. Viper said that too, but speaking for myself, I don't want it. Those guys are builders. I'd rather they had *no* upgrade han more. When I want long range fire (squad in a trench) then I put an AG squad with Gr43s into play. I'm fine with that. ...

Re: Weapon choices for PE AG

Sorry not understanding, if you don’t want the lmg then don’t upgrade it? you don’t need to upgrade the lmg to upgrade any other weapons. Yes - and no. If you do not take the LMG42, then you can indeed take three upgrades of Gr43 and/or MP44. However, you cannot have *all three upgrades* being Gr43...

Re: Weapon choices for PE AG

the lmg42 is very important for the heavy panzergrenadiers. In general yes, but in any use case when you're moving most of the time, because it's never safe to stop, it's dead weight; you almost never get to fire it. i think they should lose the g43 upgrade. because g43 is available for the normal ...

I play PE pretty much, tank-hunter. I have an infantry group and a tank destroyer group (and the healing reinforcement half-track, doing a Rimmer and hiding behind the scanner table in the back of Starbug). With the infantry, currently they can be given a single LMG42 and if they take this, then any...

AI is much better at offence than defence

Afternoon :-) The AI is okay at offence. It will build up a strong force and then strike. In that sense, offence is pretty easy to design, as a programmer - you don't have to find a way to think very much about what the other side is doing. You basically only need to think about the path you'll take...

I've Googled, but no info on BKM or COH patches.

Anyone?
