Hi Everyone!

We have a new installer version for the Public Beta, which you can find on the Store page or 'My Page' if you're logged in and have the game registered.

v01.01.15 – Changelog

New Features and Rule Changes
• For a unit on the map to disband or be sent to a theater box, it must now be more than 8 hexes from enemy units. To be able to send a unit to a TB, it must also be on a connected rail hex. Other limitations/restrictions re disbanding and transferring to a theater box remain unchanged.
• Multiple changes to Assault HQ rules:
o The command point multipliers for HQs in Assault HQs are now:
Date Axis Army Axis Corps // Soviet Front Soviet Army&Corps
1941 1.34 1.17 // no bonus no bonus
1942 1.34 1.17 // 1.10 1.10
1943 1.34 1.17 // 1.34 1.25
1944 1.34 1.17 // 1.67 1.34
1945 1.34 1.17 // 1.67 1.34
o Limits on maximum number of Assault HQs are now:
Date Axis Soviet
1941 4 2
1942 3 2
1943 3 3
1944 2 4
1945 2 4
• Changes made to ground combat. Increased the range at which the opening direct fire shots are fired, while increasing the amount of fire at these longer ranges. Increased the number of rounds of combat between opening range and 50 yard combat. Opening ranges will be longer for clear and less dense terrain. Net effect of combat changes increases overall losses slightly.
• When captured, airbases will have their ground element experience seeded at the level of the owning sides air national morale.
• Now when a corps is created using 2 or 3 guards units, if an appropriate guards OB is not available, the newly formed corps will not be a guards unit. A data change in this version delays the first available Guards Tank Corps to December 1942, and the first available Guards Mechanized Corps to November 1942. So merging guards brigades before these dates will not result in a guards corps.
Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
• Escorts not flying in ground support (usually when enemy has ground support turned off). Fixed.
• Cavalry units are being allowed to temporarily motorize. Fixed.
• Movement FOW turned on is preventing movement over a ferry hex into an enemy controlled hex with no enemy units. Fixed.
• Some units have their transfer flag set during a scripted withdrawal, and it is never turned off. This causes them to show incorrectly in the CR screen as still being in transfer. Fixed.
• Very weak units being displaced while isolated could shatter or rout out of a pocket instead of surrendering. Fixed.
• AFVs could sometimes return fire at a range greater than their weapon’s range. Fixed.
• Units lose lots of ammo and in some cases their ammo on hand goes negative. Fixed.
• Rollover text over Command Efficiency button is wrong. Fixed.
• Stacks with X for CV value have attacker CV value showing instead of MPs. Fixed.
• When creating new Soviet units in the reserve, they could get a name already used by an active unit. Fixed.
• AI controlled city forts are participating in attacks. Fixed.
• Soviet AI puts NKPS units in Rostov city fort. Fixed.
• Axis Ai attaches 2 German infantry regiments to Soviet 6th Army. Fixed.
• Axis AI changes human Batumi to export port. Fixed.

ORIGINAL: JosephStephenson

• Now when a corps is created using 2 or 3 guards units, if an appropriate guards OB is not available, the newly formed corps will not be a guards unit. A data change in this version delays the first available Guards Tank Corps to December 1942, and the first available Guards Mechanized Corps to November 1942. So merging guards brigades before these dates will not result in a guards corps.


Is there any indication in the UI before you create a corps whether it will become a guards corps or not? If not, it would be useful, so that it is not "surprise, it didn't become a guards corps this time" because presumably players will want to use regular units to form corps otherwise, rather than losing guards units that way. I know I will be unhappy if I am forming a corps and am not sure if it is going to become a guards corps or if it is going to eat my guards divisions/brigades, and then it eats them.

The patches are coming fast and furious. This is no surprise based on the huge and steady volume of WitE1 patches.

Unless being told otherwise, I assume Pavel has not yet completed his work on the editor (ability to go deep and change unit stats, etc.).

So this is to account for these two glider types in game because there is no specific asset for the gliders?
(Understandably because it would probably be a lot of work to model them in game.)

• Now when a corps is created using 2 or 3 guards units, if an appropriate guards OB is not available, the newly formed corps will not be a guards unit. A data change in this version delays the first available Guards Tank Corps to December 1942, and the first available Guards Mechanized Corps to November 1942. So merging guards brigades before these dates will not result in a guards corps.


Is there any indication in the UI before you create a corps whether it will become a guards corps or not? If not, it would be useful, so that it is not "surprise, it didn't become a guards corps this time" because presumably players will want to use regular units to form corps otherwise, rather than losing guards units that way. I know I will be unhappy if I am forming a corps and am not sure if it is going to become a guards corps or if it is going to eat my guards divisions/brigades, and then it eats them.


if you make it using the build screen, yes its clear, what status/TOE the formation will have. Realistically this only affects the Tank Corps (its very unlikely you'll have many mot brigades at Gds level before the Gds Mech corps can be formed). So since you can't build Tank Corps by on-map merger its pretty safe.

Exactly. That was the easiest way to have them included without lots of work to spend by programmers and playtesters for a secondary function. Me 321 is accounted for with 100% because they always tried to recover them (more a transport glider), the smaller types were often used in more hostile environments so many were just used once (more an assault glider).

To make it using the build screen, wouldn't you have to send them to reserve? You generally would not want to do that if you can just form them on the map because you will lose CPP etc as well as time, as compared to simply forming them on the map and throwing them into a battle on the same turn they are formed.

well, worth stressing the obvious - tank brigades cannot be on the map so you can't construct a Tank Corps by combining on map (unlike say a Rifle Corps)

but no, they don't have to go to the reserve, just you do have to use the build screen.

At which stage I tend to refer to the manual and a table that took a fair bit of getting right:




given how tank corps appear - they tend to draw in a lot of fresh elements as well as what was in the original brigades - I really wouldn't be throwing them into battle the turn they are formed

edit: just in case of confusion, the only Rifle Corps you can form before June 42 must be Gds, you can form Gds Cavalry from Dec 41 (so no problem there). But you can feasibly have the building blocks for a Gds Tank Corp or Gds Mech Corp before the relevant TOE is available. So all this rule does is to stop you building those 2 formations before the date they are available.

Thanks Loki, I think I was confused by the patch notes wording of "if an appropriate guards OB is not available, the newly formed corps will not be a guards unit." I thought that meant that it wouldn't form a Gds Rifle Corps if you were over the percentage limits of Gds units allowed or something like that, as compared to the OOB not being available.

Also I was thinking about Gds rifle corps more so than mech/tank corps, because I have not formed a single mech/tank corps in the StB scenario due to the AFV losses being so high even in the previous patch, whereas I had formed quite a few rifle corps and Gds rifle corps.

Is it safe to upgrade from 01.01.09 (stable) to this new beta patch, during an ongoing game?

Finally have 01.01.15. Difficulty for me was registering or logging in to the download placard. Had assumed that being logged in to the game and the forum was enough.

Worth mentioning for others as that may be their problem as well.

I am not sure if it my old PC but I have had two crashes to Desktop with the new patch. One was at the end of the air phase and the other was on loading.

The game has always been pretty stable for me. I think it has only crashed twice before this.

If you start experiencing non-repeatable crashes that others aren't, it may be a good idea to reinstall. We haven't had any reports of greater instability with the recent versions.

I had one more today. I will do a re-install.

It randomly crashed just now for me also, I hadn't done anything right before other than clicking on the map (hadn't just been moving units or anything).

Two observations.

Ground combat with combat message at level 7 flashes by on screen. The combat message detail message no longer seems to matter for ground combat. It still works for air to air combat and bombing.

Second in locations where there have been multiple attacks you are no longer able to click through both attacks using the combat display. (This started occurring several beta versions ago.)
