Re: Cheater using map-hack (so sad)

I don't know what sorts of map hacks there are but when we tried to use the console commands in test games with Pblitz, it always resulted in almost immediate desyncs. However there isn't anything we, as devs, can do - we don't own any anti-cheat software and there is none built-in to the game for u...

Oh, I see I got your first point wrong. It seemed like you wanted to implement all 3 points at once. All right, never mind.

Re: US Healing cost

I think PE was given these easier ways to heal their soldiers because they don't have the "wounded collecting" feature so to compensate for no "free" squads, they got more ways to heal the living dudes. This was still not too good compensation back in time when 6 collected soldie...

It has a bit better basic stats and comes with a tank commander (who provides further bonuses).

Re: Can't lower graphic settings

If you have a legal copy of CoH then you can just put the license number into the Steam and you will have the game available without any payment (you've paid for it already). At least I think that is how it works. Even if you don't plan to play over Steam, you can do it to see if your problem will s...

Re: 105 howitzers

Addition of the upkeep should lead to more thinking about how many howitzers you deploy and where. It should prevent a mindless spam of howitzers across the map and thus covering every point of the map. Why do you need 5 howitzers on a medium size map? You can have them but then what you describe is...

Re: 5.1.8 beta (Blitzkrieg doctrine rework)

@Volksgrenadiers: How is that different from the way the doctrine was before? The BK doctrine had Tigers and Panthers - both can be one-shot by Pershings and 17 pounders. In terms of statistics, when you have Tiger vs Pershing, the Pershing has better chance to win. Pershing has very good penetratio...

Re: 5.1.8 beta (Blitzkrieg doctrine rework)

Concerns noted. Not all the buffs stack with each other and some units are (or should be) excluded from the the buff effects. It is possible that we missed some of the possible combinations which may turn out to be OP but that is what the feedback period is for. StuPa + possible buffs is one such ex...

Re: 5.1.8 beta (Blitzkrieg doctrine rework)

The thing is that StuPa is available later - you can only build it from the heavy tank factory. To get it you also need 7CPs which means that the opponent will be able to field some counters already. Anyway, StuPa is meant to work as defense killer - a support in your unit composition not the main c...

Re: [FAQ] Common Problems, read before posting!

Yes, but what Pblitz meant was that most people don't have this problem and only a few do. If there was a problem within the game files everyone would experience this. That suggests that the issue is coming from the side of the users that experience the problem. Since we don't have access to the PCs...

The number of engineers (either number of them in squad or several squads at once) does not affect the build speed of stuff - this has been the case for ever.

We haven't changed anything about the shotgun so it could hardly get worse with this update. Since nothing was changed, I am pretty sure that this thing has been in the mod for years and only now somebody noticed it.

Re: panthers

So the answer: Because Panther G has better armor than Panther A and Panther G also comes with skirts pre-installed, while A needs to invest further 50 ammo for them. EDIT: Panther G has also better top MG - it can rotate in full 360°, the Panther A MG only coverssome area in the direction where the...

Re: panthers

Correction:
There is a difference between "needs" (from game-play perspective) and "realistically should have".
- Yes, Panther G realistically had more armor.
- No, Panther G does not need more armor (from game-play point of view).

Re: 105 howitzers

Hard to say. I would start with pure ammo upkeep and adjust from there. There are tons of ways to implement this and no way to tell which one would be the best one. E.g. the cost of barrages can be the same as now and the upkeep can be something relatively low (e.g. 5 ammo per minute) - this way you...

I am for the "only arty doctrines can use barrages on captured static howitzers". The thing is that static howitzers (and barrages from them) are an asset which is meant to be dontrine-specific but due to the capture system of the game, it possible to get this thing even as another doctrin...

Re: 5.1.7 live release

We're looking into this. It is probably just some issue with the text file not getting overwritten or possibly the new version did not get uploaded. It will be fixed as soon as possible.
