Re: Panther smoke shell bug

That is also present in the game - e.g. Tetrarchs can select a location where they launch the smoke from the smoke launchers, also no active gun needed. Maybe it is the same for the Panther, I am not sure right now. It is simply the way that some units fire the smoke with their gun and some use laun...

Re: Panther smoke shell bug

As Mr. FeministDonut said - Some tanks (such as US M10) can fire a smoke shell at a location and some tanks (shermans, Panthers etc.) have smoke launchers which pop one smoke shell at the position of the tank - these don't need a functioning cannon to do it.

Re: Proposal : units can only recrew if they have at least one more man than needed

I've never tried to do something like this but I suspect it is not possible to do. If I remember it correctly, you can only set how many soldiers are transfered from the squad to the weapon crew but you cannot set "recrew only possible if number of alive soldiers in a squad is < X"

Re: Does the unit type matter when recrewing?

Veterancy its bonuses are applied from the squad to the soldiers inside the squad, this means that if a soldier leaves a squad (in this case recrews a weapon), he loses the veterancy bonuses he had in the squad he left. And Aura bonuses are appied only when the commanding unit is in reach, so no ret...

Re: Scorched Earth - Observation truck

Do they? I thought they give no cover. It was a useable tactic to build a line of barbed wire in front of sandbags (the side facing the enemy) so that the enemy would not be able to use the cover against you. If the wires give yellow/green cover, it is a bug and it will be fixed. Is it maybe possibl...

Re: Does the unit type matter when recrewing?

Yes, you are right. Emplacement crews still keep their HP and "armor" type but they have no visible "guards" so their weapons don't matter and they cannot reinforce so their reinforcement costs don't matter either. Only thing I can think of is that e.g. AT guns still provide cove...

Re: 105 howitzers

Is there even a reason to have the naked/emplaced versions? It seems sort of pointless. They are usually so far away that direct-shooting weapons cannot reach them (maybe infantry but if they get this close, they can throw grenade at either of them and kill the crew) and other arty can kill the crew...

Re: Does the unit type matter when recrewing?

The gun has its own stats so the crew type does not affect the performance of the weapon. However the crew is always 2 people operating the gun and 1 (or more) "guarding". The crew keeps their weapons and stats such as "armor" type, HP or any bonuses they would have so if you rec...

Re: 105 howitzers

I was wondering it's probably possible to stop this exploit by adding a requirement to the bombard abilities that a player must be a particular doctrine to use. What do you think? The whole point of decrewing/recrewing is that you can regain a lost weapon/gun for lower cost (the cost of reinforced ...

Re: Scorched Earth - Observation truck

I think roadblocks are supposed to give green cover. After all, they are pretty solid objects so there is no reason why it should be impossible for infantry to hide behind them.

Re: 105 howitzers

Static howitzers need to be better because they are static. Once you fire and hit enemy unit, opponent can see where they shoot from and can counter-arty them. They have longer range, true but once you know where they are, you can move your mobile stuff in range. The "burn-and-recrew" is a...

We will check it, it is possible that the ability forces the soldier to come closer than they should.

It is possible to make them "shoot" on the move but I would say it would be counter-productive. I don't know how the Flamethrowers work in CoH2 but in CoH1 they "shoot" at something (the stream of flame) and then the game spawns the "flame zone" on the ground. Technical...

The FT change was innitially a big shock for many players but most of them adapted. Most of the squads that can get FT are very squishy, have low HP and are easy to suppress (exceptions being perhaps Storm demolition squad). This means that most units that can suppress can stop the squad very quickl...

I may be wrong, but I think the main issue was price. The original Thompson was 200 USD per unit. The cost-reduced version was 43 USD per unit.

"Main SMG" is sort of wonky term. I think that in Forgotten Weapons (and some other videos too, I think) they said that Thompsons were more known and iconic SMGs of the USA during the war but the M3 was better in several aspects. I am not 100% sure but I think they mentioned that M3 was li...
