Re: Vampire spotting poll

@Mark Are you hesitant to remove it because you don't want to strip the mod of "content"? In any case, limiting it to one is a good idea, but I think it needs be turned into timed and payed ability. This way, you can at least use it as a tool for specific reason for instance,executing an assault, in...

Re: Vampire spotting poll

One can't say if it's a mediocre unit, because it's alone in its category, there's nothing to compare it to. Let me explain again. Hidden/camoed units is one of the core gameplay mechanics, that is available to all factions and all doctrines. AT guns, AT squads, spotters, snipers, mgs and more are a...

Re: Vampire spotting poll

I intentionally did not bother to drag RAF triangulation in here, because it's incomparable in real scenario. It's so heavily dependent on the map and circumstances, and even with the best possible scenario, your only option really is to fly a recon plane to remove FOG, drop a glider in the corner/e...

Re: Vampire spotting poll

Can you guys elaborate on your answers please? Why don't you mind it when playing against luft and how do you accommodate? Are you willingly putting your spotters further back? Or you just keep replacing them relentlessly? What about laying ambushes? Do you abandon them completely, or do you just ho...

It felt bad for me as well, with 6 rockets your chances of actually getting some good hits are too low, I guess.

Vampire spotting poll

My opinon: Ambush, hidden units and spotting is one of the fundamental mechanics of the game/mod and this one just straight up breaks it. It doesn't invoke any gameplay mechanic either, it's a simple as place the unit, press button and you see all (including hidden) enemy units in vast radius.

I can confirm Achilles, jgpzl70 and chaffee shoot automatically. I am pretty sure the other two as well, might check in game.

thanks for the explanations. -Hellcat - interesting, because no other TD behaves this way. That's actually what the hold fire button is for and Hellcat has it.

Re: Hotchkiss in the Beta

The problem of hotchkiss is that the damage and especially aoe against infantry is too high. So players abuse it as a no-skill way of causing heavy MP losses to allied opponents. Rocket jeep is similar, but it requires a lot more rng to kill an unit entirely (several direct hits) while the aoe of on...

Heya,

Who believes allies are OP, watch this replay viewtopic.php?f=16&t=3599
It features both axis and allies tricks and abilities, debunking most of the statements of this thread, except specific changes in the beta.

New WH AT unit vs Shermans

Hey guys, what's up.
It seems to me that the new guys can quite reliably pen Shermans while shaving around 30-40% HP.
Is this an intention? Shouldn't these rifles be capable to pen around 20-30mm? Seems they can't really pen Cromwell that well, but not sure.
