Re: 5.1.8 beta (Doctrine rework, update 3)

One thing that makes we wonder is why not a single topic was made about the Garand or BAR here in Forum first. You say that some people said or complained about "xy" but they didnt do it here. But still changes got made. But I and others get told that we shall get to the forum first when ...

Re: 5.1.8 beta (Doctrine rework, update 3)

nope, british reworks come later as we've said multiple times. we made a decision: either buff k98's or nerf garands. it had to be one or the other. this was argued over quite often. we went with one decision over the other. and that's it. if other weapons need to get tweaked to stay competitive, th...

We backed it up and tested them as well. As far as we have tested they are behaving as intended. Will wait for replays to prove otherwise.

Re: 5.1.8 beta (Doctrine rework, update 3)

"Endless wave of complain" - maybe stop changing literally every aspect of the game just for once and let us enjoy what we already have? Are you still doing this for anyone but yourself? These were changed proposed by players or based on player complaints. For every group of players who w...

Re: 5.1.8. beta (Doctrine rework, update 2)

Okay I also tried watching the replays, for some reason only one of them worked. The one with figree/not vs regarden/tiger on bizory. I found it a very..... strange game... Firstly, I think Markr's analysis is absolutely accurate to the game itself. And actually, there was a LOT of munition used and...

Re: 5.1.8. beta (Doctrine rework, update 2)

Check the supply yard? I think maybe we moved it there but forgot to put it in the changelog.

Upkeep mechanics unfortunately cannot be tied to percentage of income.

Territorial bonus does not apply to allied troops.

I don't want to say too much yet, as I believe I'd need to play more before I confirm anything.. but to be honest with you guys; and i'm really not saying this to disappoint anyone... Though, it's just how I honestly feel about the whole beta thing; the game is a lot more boring to play.. just that...

Re: 5.1.8. beta (Doctrine rework, update 1)

If I remember right (can’t check right now) most the medium and bigger AT guns have reloads of like 6-8 seconds. So 3 second tear down and 2 second aim time is too short, based on past standards. This doesn’t have to be true, the reload time can be less, but as long as the teardown plus aim time is ...

Re: 5.1.8. beta (Doctrine rework, update 1)

The only thing i want is that aim times wont get thrown away entirely. Bc that would be a huge benefit for those that use AT guns with bad spotting. Also having long teardown times makes vehicles in general more deadly bc you spend endless ammount of time just to slightly turn your AT gun. You may ...

Re: 5.1.8. beta (Doctrine rework, update 1)

I think you're missing the point. It's not the fact that the puma can kill the AT gun quickly, it's that the AT gun is effectively useless. Having a slower turret rotation does let the AT gun kill the puma any better. The AT gun doesn't deter let alone kill vehicles in this game. This is the issue w...

Re: 5.1.8. beta (Doctrine rework, update 1)

Here's a replay of pumas driving right past 57mm AT guns consistently, not one of the 10ish i sent through died. This is on the regular patch. Note this was POST speed changes and PRE teardown fix. On the beta, light vehicles definitely haven't gone away. I'd have more replays showing gameplay but t...

Re: 5.1.8. beta (Doctrine rework, update 1)

Teardown time was introduced to prevent the pick up and insta reload bug. The original fix to that was introducing aimtime, which made 57mm and 50mms at guns more or less useless because their intended counters (light armor, armored cars, etc) would be able to charge through the AT gun's firing arc ...

Despite having a lot of free space to maneuver through the doctrinal items, yet.. that person just chooses to set really m...

Re: 5.1.8. beta (Doctrine rework, update 1)

The reason why P4s take away from the T2 is not because it’s too strong but because it is rushed especially since it’s role is not the same as the P4. Unless you’re saying the stug is going to be rushed instead of the P4, then yes stugs do have a problem. looks like you finally started to understan...

Re: 5.1.8. beta (Doctrine rework, update 1)

Note taken about the stugs, I see where you’re coming from. But not convinced yet. Stugs (tier 3 unit) and halftracks/light tanks (tier 2 units) are barred by tier, that’s what splits them. The reason why P4s take away from the T2 is not because it’s too strong but because it is rushed especially si...

For the 5th time, CW and PE changes are planned later so their current state is NOT something to be compared with.

Re: 5.1.8. beta (Doctrine rework, update 1)

And the only tank in armor i would use AP against would probably be the Pershing Ding ding ding. There’s the answer. Prior to the rework a single unit, the Pershing plus support, countered the entire blitz doc. There’s also the prospect that the jumbo can be dealt with not just with panthers but pa...

Re: 5.1.8. beta (Doctrine rework, update 1)

I wouldn't classify the leig18 as a "rapid artillery" and wouldn't fit the same tactical aspects as the maultier. It was not used as an arty unit in the same way as say a mortar or howitzer as often historically. The mortar halftrack is more effective (i hate mortar halftracks) in this reg...

The demo squad will be fixed so that it will require the unlock before being deployed from the halftrack. The maultier will not be put on the unlock tree only for the sake of putting all the artillery on an unlock branch. We find this "just because" logic not as strong as other strategic l...

You can control the direction of the tanks and the 50cals. Use recon runs to fly over direction of the 50cals.
