Re: Weapon upgrades

I have noticed that Daimler with LJ is incredibly powerful against HTs, often oneshotting them. I don't know whether that's only thanks to the adapter or whether it's just standard damage. It's great against Mortar HTs and pretty much the only counter measure the Brits have against it. Mortar HTs ar...

Re: 5.1.4 preview

Read all the way through it. They seem to be very sensible changes overall. The only thing I'm a bit sceptical about is the slower turret rotation on the Achilles. Since you cannot "lock" turrets, it usually starts aiming all over the place when you do a mobile attack and often already end...

Re: Weapon upgrades

Okay, thanks. What about Flamethrowers? They seem to do very little initial damage and only then start being a threat. Since, except for RAF, it is only used by pioneers, is it a good idea to use it? Pioneers die very quickly, especially if they have to get close to an occupied building. I always wo...

Re: Weapon upgrades

@Warhawks97: Interesting and yes, that's what I thought about the Luftwaffe guys. Thanks for the information, sure let's do that. @kwok: That sounds like a sound idea in general but would you also advise British engineers to pick up MP40 and the likes? They seem to be the only support infantry to be...

Re: Translations

Sure, but you never know how specific it is supposed to me. I mean we have stuff like "Sd.Kfz. 251/9" or similar in game which is incredibly specific :D

You're welcome :)

Weapon upgrades

Hi everyone, there are a lot of weapon upgrades for several units in the game. I was wondering which are worth investing in general and which should be used depending on the situation. A few examples I gathered from the forums and my (small) share of PvP gameplay: 1. Take a Grease Gun over BARs unle...

Re: 1v1 as us vs shaka

@Tiger1996: I would argue that if you delay the Churchills more, they become utterly useless. Their armour is already hit and miss (even though it's over performing by a large margin - but then again, so is the Panzer IV Ausf. H's armour), especially if the enemy loads APCR on the PaK 40, the armame...

Re: Sd.Kfz. 251/7 with 28 mm (for all doc of WM)

I've heard that the 37mm has trouble to deal with the Recce, at least the standard one does and I take it that the mobile one won't do much better (although you never know, Flak 38 hint hint). I also think that the rocket ability only comes at a later stage so that it will be too late and expensive ...

We just stick words together that belong together. Here it is "Geschwindigkeit" + "Begrenzung" or "Tempo" + "Limit" so it's easier than you think :P

Re: Request for gameplay advice

I am fine with it and I get why it is done the way it is. I just think that using the "realism" card on the same thing that was clearly done not out of realism but because of visuals is a bit wonky. EDIT: Now sure, you can always argue that if there's a big blast, there should be a lot of ...

Make it very slow like the 17pdr but maybe they would be less useless? I don't know what...

Re: Factions Armor Philosophy

Yeah, it makes sense that ammo is not necessarily ammo and fuel only fuel. I just found it odd on a first glance. Thanks for the replies! Yes, I'm sure that tweaking one unit a little bit can have a huge impact on the rest but this glaring imbalance does really feel off. Having the different 75mm L/...

Yeah. Just a few more questions while we're at it: 1. How do I keep tanks from driving into battle backwards? The BK feature to facilitate retreat is something I tend to dislike overall because it does more damage than good. It does not matter whether I click or click pull to wards a location, the t...

1. Yeah, I did see that with the M2HB variants vastly differing in performance. Even their sound differs greatly. The .50 on the trucks, jeeps and tanks sound like peashooters while the M2 nest sounds incredibly powerful in comparison. It's probably all balance stuff but it still takes me by surpris...
