Re: Update 9 Test - How to Join

I didn't even have to restart Steam, it just went ahead.

Re: Eastern Front & other theatres

By including the Normandy map the devs have shown us they're willing to add alternate map scales. God willing they'd do the same for the Berlin, Moscow, Leningrad and Stalingrad areas. For example, taking Moscow in the otherwise excellent Typhoon scenario felt about as climactic as raking leaves off...

Re: OOB Compared To UOC II

And I have now bought UOC 2 and about 100 hours in - very rich, very deep game - certainly more sophisticated than OOB or Panzer Corps - on the other hand - it is nice to pick your own air force in OOB, your own Tigers etc. Nothing like having 10 Stukas to take care of your campaigns :-) The fluidi...

Re: Compare this game to others like it

Other than being hex-based and turn-based with a WW2 theme, UoC was a near-total departure from the clapped-out Panzer General model. That's what makes it so good. Both Panzer Corps and OoB were insulting and overpriced rehashes of a concept that reached its fullest potential with Pacific General ov...

Re: this negative steam review of UOCII worries me: is it accurate?

The reviewer is wrong - dumb luck played a far bigger role in UoC1 as people are saying.

Among other improvements I like how a patch of bad weather in the wrong spot isn't the kiss of death any more.

Re: BETA TEST!

Thanks for this. Should point out I'm on US / Canada Pacific time; I assume most of the rest of you are in Europe.

Re: Donbas Nip, any tip?

Hate to necro but I have never won a BV (or even a win) with anything other than a Rostov first strategy. If I go for Rostov, I can usually win on T6. This is basically because possession of Rostov, the bridge to the east and some sort of chain back to the Mius bridge shuts down any threat from the ...

Re: Italian and romanian weaklings

One Axis minor unit I really appreciate is the plucky Hungarian Panzer in the Voronezh scenario. Obviously it's not nearly as powerful as the German units to the north but it has been responsible for a BV many times, whether by wiping out Soviet stragglers who would have cut my supply lines, closing...

Re: Official Tournament Rules Thread

Multiplayer emphasises some of the game's limitations. Fortunately, the biggest (frequent wipeouts / offensives becoming walkovers as the strength ratio between attacker and defender widens in the attacker's favour over time) is being addressed by the devs for the sequel. Another would be that the b...
