Resolute -> Few Beginners Question (5/16/2013 10:16:45 PM)

I am currently playing the 41 campaign on Axis side vs the AI and a few questions came up to which I really can't find an answer to:

- I noticed that the CP value of AGS and AGC have very high negative values. Is that something which has such a minor impact that I should dismiss it or should I move some troops to AGN and possibly attatch some support units directly to those HQs I transfered so I have more freedom?

- When the "First Winter Rule" kicks in, I am really unsure which action I should take. Defend the front with heavy losses or pull most of my troops back and try to regain ground when the storm has passed?

- Is there any way to reduce the time it takes for the AI to move its pieces around? With the battle marker I really don't see the reason to watch each of its moves and combat actions.

.
under preferences click off show move animation and set move animation speed to zero, that should help I think.

Some of the AAR's have some good advice, some good threads in the War Room on this.

The army groups help with making the "rolls" in the game (with their ratings). If they are overstacked they are much less effective - the amount overstacked, and the distance modifier, are added to the roll (so if its base roll is 40 and the overstacking is an amount of 20 the roll would be 60).

It is still more important to have good corps commanders (1st in the chain of command):
- If we do not consider penalties for overstacking, a dice of 10 is thrown. If the leaders rating is 7 he has a 60% chance to make the roll - 1 - 6 he makes it, 7 - 10 he doesn't make it

and good army commanders (2nd in the chain of command):
- If we do not consider penalties for range and overstacking, a dice of 20 is thrown. If the leaders rating is 7 he has a 30% chance to make the roll - 1 - 6 he makes it, 7 - 20 he doesn't make it

And then come the army group and OKH commanders

army group commanders (3rd in the chain of command):
- If we do not consider penalties for range and overstacking, a dice of 40 is thrown. If the leaders rating is 7 he has a 15% chance to make the roll - 1 - 6 he makes it, 7 - 40 he doesn't make it

OKH commander (4th in the chain of command)
- If we do not consider penalties for range and overstacking, a dice of 80 is thrown. If the leaders rating is 7 he has a 7.5% chance to make the roll - 1 - 6 he makes it, 7 - 80 he doesn't make it

If the first leader in the chain fails, the next is going to try and make his roll and so on, and so on..

See 11.3.1 in the manual for more details

I also converted the .txt file one forum member once composed for more than 70 (!!!) threads, tips & tricks into a .pdf that can be d/l here:
