Revoking attack/defend instructions to friendly AIs

When playing with friendly AI, the attack and defend markers control their behaviour. If these markers are never used, the AI moves units around all over the place; when they are used, it more or less concentrates all units on the marked spots and they stay there. Is there a way to turn *off* the at...

Nothing wose than... [squad here] [buiilding here] [buiilding here] [buiilding here] [doorway] [hostile squad] ...telling a squad under fire to get into a building and finding out the doorway is on the other side of the building. Have these people never heard of fire regulations??!

Re: What are the differences between difficulty levels?

No, they are still the same, the only difference is in the resource income which allows to AI overwhelm you with more units than you can build. Thankyou. I'm very, very, very glad difficulty is implemented in this way. I can start playing on hard now. I held back because I hate playing when AI unit...

Re: What are the differences between difficulty levels?

Are the AI units tougher - more health, stronger guns, etc - as the difficulty levels rise above normal?

BAR vs LMG42

What are the differences between the BAR and the LMG42? The BAR seems to take up one slot, the LMG42 two? When I have PE assault grenadiers, I think I can eqiup with three BAR - I've not done this yet, but I can certainty do two and there's an upgrade slot left over. If I give them an LMG42, they ca...

What are the differences between difficulty levels?

I normally play vs normal.

I'm wondering - if I play vs expert, are the AI units *tougher*, or is it just that the AI has more resources while his units are unchanged?

[5.1.5] PIV/48 TD not firing main cannon

Okay, so, this can't be a proper bug report because the event is hard to capture. I'm writing to say something seemingly odd happened, and so if other people also start sayng similar stuff, then maybe there is something there. I had a pair of PE TDs, the PIV/48s. Both with commanders. There's a sing...

Re: Tanks seem worse than tank destroyers

I don't think this is a problem though - think about TDs. When you tell them to go somewhere, they go there. They only start to auto-rotate when they're not moving. Tanks can do the same, except the turret can rotate at any time, even while they're on their way somewhere. thats what i said. with ho...

Re: Tanks seem worse than tank destroyers

You misunderstood me. Yes. I mean continous driving around an enemy tank dealing shots, while he is unable to run away or fight back. You can't do that without a turret. So, let me ask to make sure I've understood - I think you're saying that what I have proposed, that stationary tanks point their ...

Re: Tanks seem worse than tank destroyers

it will be awkward to make tanks with turrets rotate their entire hull in order to point at targets. this way you remove the advantage of the turret and they become tank destroyers. In this thread I've argued for a couple of reasons that how tanks behave now is worse than tank destroyers. You're sa...

Re: Tanks seem worse than tank destroyers

im not sure if anyone of you have played coh2 but all units in coh2 have hold fire ability. and it works very well in preventing issues like this turret problems. because your tanks will not rotate their turret or decide to engage enemies without your permission so it is much easier to keep their t...

Re: Tanks seem worse than tank destroyers

F2 is also a very poor tank. It significantly weaker. Try using panzer IV H from TH doc, where you can give it armor buff, and vet from beginning. They are unstoppable if handled well. It just happened to be an F2 that one particular time,as I was experimenting with a different doctrine, and needed...

F2.

I never use J - sadly, I'm not very good at zerging.

Tanks seem worse than tank destroyers

I normally play with tank destroyers. I know them well and I'm sure you all do too. Recently, I've been experimenting with tanks. I'm beginning to come to the view they are problematic to use because of their turrets. This is not what you'd wish for - tanks should be better because of their turrents...

Mortar teams being run over by friendly tanks

So, what's up with this?

If I have a deployed mortar team, and a tank, and the tank goes near or over the team, the team often is killed.

I've noticed friend AI tanks do this as well.

Only with mortar teams I think - although maybe it could also happen with HMG teams? I've not experimented.
