My guess is folks not noticing weather is where a lot of this comes from. I don't remember the initiative effect to weather from the old PG. Makes sense as a mechanic, just not expected :-)

Especially for those who really wanted exact combat result predictions:

quote:

In 1.05 there is a new cheat code "chess" which makes all combats play exactly as they were predicted (unless rugged defense happens - that is still a random factor). This is by no means a solution to RNG problems some people complain about, but players who like to plan everything from beginning to end and have everything under control might want to try this mode.


Who says we don`t listen to you bunch of whiners!

On battle results hot keys, this screen shot shows right unit stats but wrong unit designations, should infantry and cavalry.

EDIT: Ah dopey me, thought Ctrl click and the "L" key did the same thing.





Can someone elaborate on the detailed combat screen for me?

What does "Dice roll: +X" mean?

And why is does it show Attack and Defense for both units? Isn't one unit attacking and one unit defending? Or do they swap rolls in combat?

Why is it showing 20th Pioneiere vs 14th French Inf but on the screen to right it is show 4th Wehmacht Inf vs 8th Light Cavalry?

Thx

Unless the initiave of the attacking unit is 5 higher than that of the defending unit, the defending unit will always shoot back.

On the right side of the screen the currently selected unit and 'moused over' or attacked unit is shown.
The Combat Details screen shows the result of the previous combat.

Oh ok, thanks

So if a unit has a 5 or greater initiative and attacks, the defending units doesn't get a shot back?

To be precise if the difference in initiative between the attacking unit and the defending unit is greater than 5 then the defending unit doesn't shoot back.

That is because for every point that the attacker has more 20% of the defending unit (based on his strenght level) doesn't shoot back, and 5 * 20% = 100% .

The above is for ground combat, it works a bit different in air combat (don't know the precise numbers for that).
