This was a well fought match that shows the power of the Ostruppen doctrine. Truppen/Sniper/1MG start. Lots of converting fuel to muni for those giant artillery call-ins. Unorthodox play.

Both players are ranked 200 to 300 in 1v1.

So far since using this doctrine this is the closest game ive had so i knew it would be good replay. The cheapness of the Osttrupen squads makes it easy to keep map control even when losing battles. They make great meatshields, scouts, and recrew field weapons,.. but the munitions for fuel trade is probably the most powerful part of this doctrine. In my opinion, the strength of Osttrupen is to be spammed in the late game when your both starved for manpower trying to keep your armys afloat, this will overwhelm your enemy who cant hold all the VP's/Fuel and fight the bulk of your actual army at the same time... not so much to be spammed in the early game.

Game lasts about 40 minutes and is epic back and forth. So fast forward if you like short matches :P

Pretty nice. I can see this doctrine working well for sheer staying power. In bloody battles being able to have so many squads for recrewing all the equipment lying around is a real benefit. In the early game you're really lacking though? You get run off a lot :)

Burts: Granted, say, it's not as effective as shock rifle or gaurds motor, however, it's simply alot more fun.

Burts: and about that "right click", you know, in an armoured engagement, the last thing you want is some guys popping at your rear and you have to turn your turret to fight them and not the tank itself...

Burts: if maxims are "OP" versus OKW , theres practically no reason dushkas aren't

Katitof: with 50% less accuracy on partisans and beleive me, I want this doctirne to work because I love it, but it simply does not work against half decent players who aren't blind.

Katitof: You didn't really used it in 2 digit rank bracket? Anyone who can right click can hardcounter partisans and 3 PTRS on 4 man squad is last thing I want to fight with Tigers and panthers. Partisans are simply horrible doctrine that is additionaly penalized

Burts: once again, it's usefull because it lets you entirely skip tier 2 and still get everything you need from it. It doesn't change the fact that a T-34 + m-42 will win versus a PIV.

Burts: also, PTRS doesn't have 60 range, doesn't have such a penetration, doesn't have the RoF because the PTRS gaurds like to get killed alot.
