Question on tactics: Assault, assault and assault

RE: Question on tactics: Assault, assault and assault
How we digress.... from assaults to 1/2 tracks. What's next armor values? Need for engineers to be able to lay mines and build bridges? Claymores in DGVN? LOL I love it.

Hi Jorge,

We did digress but, in a relevant way?
If half tracks were worth more points the players might be less willing to run them around and assault with them? :rolleyes:

Though any artificial means within the game engine to inhibit units would begin to draw away from the overall pleasure derived from the game? (It's why I liked the original Squad Leader and hated the "advanced" variety.) Eek

Since you brought it up, engineers cannot lay an effective minefield or build a bridge within six minutes. Why anyone wants to see that happen in this game scale is beyond me. :chin: I think that is why there are pontoon bridges available for scenario designers to use. :cool:

I do not have DG/VN loaded but, I think that historically claymores were not exclusive to engineers? For CS the game developers gave VolksGren units a higher hard attack ability due to the proliferation of "fausts" that they were given and German rifle platoons have a higher fire value due to the Mg that they were based around. At this scale claymores could be factored in to defensive values of a unit? ;)

Let's keep the discussion going and not mind any digressions or branches? Big Grin

I agree that it would be a major change. They might be able to limit it somewhat if they made something like 65%-75% of the assaults work just about like the current system, but the rest could have varying degrees of success compared to the current system. That would keep it a viable tactic, but maybe make players a little more cautious about putting the surround units in harm's way.
