Wacht Am Rhine AAR

Unread postby Ritalingamer » Sat Jan 11, 2020 1:10 am

Attached are my results for my first attempt on Normal. I found blowing through the lines easy once I got the hang of the German units working a little differently. I definitely miss the ability to have more than one Specialist, especially using engineers + artillery in set piece attacks.

Thoughts?

Ahh... don't say it's too easy, it doesn't take much to tip Daniel over into "make it hard af" mode :D

I'm interested to hear how easy/difficult it was to get through to Liege and which route you took?

Also... You are an old-timer... You should be playing on classic my man :P

Cheers

I took Liege from the North. It was fairly stubborn, IIRC it took me four turns.
I will play on Classic, I just figured for my first time...

I played on classic and took Antwerp. It is very tempting not to follow the historical path. Maybe strengthen the defense on both sides of Ardennes?

If you want the ultimate Watch Am Rhine experience hard difficulty is probably the best. It's a bit easy (in UoC in general) to keep some of your units in very good shape even after a lot of combat, even though in reality armoured forces engaged in this kind of slugfest would be ground down real fast.
