Re: Poor Doctrine Design - Luft

And its those same old players who will beatdown on the new players and drive them right out. BK mod is the same old faces, over and over. There is a reason for that. A lot of this old guard have gotten used to this meta, and learned how to counter stuff, balance be dammed, and as such, a sort of &q...

Re: HE/AP Switch Cooldown Standardization

What else could be standardized? I'd say ambush bonuses for TD's. Obviously there would be differences between say, the bonus of a jackson or a hetzer, but stuff like the hellcat, wolverine and jackson could be standardized, or the jadgpanzers and the hetzer, maybe even the jagdpanther (all the low ...

Re: Doctrine Specialization: Example Firefly in the RAF doc and Grenadiers in Wermacht

IMHO, I think the best way to do this is by "balance crusade". A survey will give you a good feeling or what everyone wants, but it does not allow for discussion. I think the best way to go about it, it topics like this: how to we want to balance stuff, what logic will we use to achieve th...

Re: Doctrine Specialization: Example Firefly in the RAF doc and Grenadiers in Wermacht

I like the metaphor you used with rock-paper-scissors, but in reality its more of an office-max in terms of how the counter game goes... but that is obvious. (I am way more proud of this joke than I have any right to be) Anyway, I chose specialized docs; no surprise there. But for me, I always thoug...

Re: OMG there's a new dev team member! (Topic split)

Ah kwok! Happy to see that you are now part of the dev team. I see you have the people who don't want to see germans nerfed quaking in their boots!

Pay them no attention.

Re: Poor Doctrine Design - Luft

I've had some success with one sniper into HE sherman... (sooner or later)... will have to try it with 2. Thanks Mencius! So how much of this rework is directly nerfing actual units, and how much of it is going to be reducing the bloat this doc has? Like I get that people want to keep as much of thi...

Re: Allies OP

I completely agree. With allied units actually killing one German unit once in a blue moon, radical action must be taken to stop this imbalance. I suggest they also have an upgrade that gives the stuka rockets some sort of guidance system, and allow them to have 31 inch grenade assaults for the more...

Re: Forgotten USA light tanks

I mean, the issue is is that by the time you can get an allied LT on the field, axis has Puma, HT, sometimes pak/rocket AT...Its not so much a fault of the chaffe or Stuart as it is just axis outclassing allies in terms of quality at every stage of the game except for maybe at the very beginning.

4.) Nope. no troll. Really my balance complaints from the 3 threads Ive posted in can be summed up in a couple points: -make shermans (76) better somehow, which the 50 cal buff probably already does, but im not sure because its not in this beta, so I couldn't test it, but im sure the buff will be s...

Re: Poor Doctrine Design - Luft

Just finished reading your second section (did not realize you had updated), and, yeah, I think you nailed it. While most docs have "branches" in their trees, luft does seem to front load bonuses right at the start of a tree.

Re: Why shermans need to be s**t, a reply to markr (balance crusade)

I have no clue as to how you came to that conclusion... I'm not trying to get the sherman to be a clone of the panzer 4. And I very well aware that allies have been buffed in the span of many patches... that does not make the game balanced. Playing this mod a couple years back i became painfully awa...

Re: Why shermans need to be s**t, a reply to markr (balance crusade)

My vision in so far is that of the main battle tank, similar to the pz4, but not so easily countered. For the purposes of this thread, im going to put the 76 sherman in the same box as the stug III, jagdpanzer, PanzerIV H/J: these are the tanks that I would like the 76 to compete against (for refere...

This is how I read this post: Axis pz4 has to be better then sherman, and because axis have alternative to pz4, unlike allies, who will keep building sherman even if shit, pz4 needs to be good so that axis keeps building it...(-_-) I am not 100% sure what you meant here, though I have a feeling you...

Re: Why shermans need to be s**t, a reply to markr (balance crusade)

Thank you. I think some people confusing making a tank beatable and less cost efficient make it useless. News flash, making the germans weak at certain points of the game is not a horrible balance decision. In fact its a good one.

Huh. Disapointed the 50cal changes didnt go through. Im really happy with these changes though. They are a start. (I love how some people already are worried 50cal is OP. Losing units to US would be a new experience for axis.)
