Problem is that in some countries symbols like swastika (in nazi context) or sicle and hammer are forbbiden.
From my POV the way how they showed Soviets Union was quite accurate.
For me they were no different than Nazi (sometimes even worse).
There may have been some truth to the portrayal of the Soviet Union BUT look at the portrayal of the allied heroes in coh1. Good guys, saving people and the world.
When actually, British and American artillery caused more French civilian deaths than the Luftwaffe caused to British civilians. You know, our guys weren't charging in, fighting close combat, we were mostly arty-striking cities then mopping up what was left.
So if Relic is gonna go "historically accurate about atrocities", fine but apply it evenly, surely?
Some allied war crimes for your interest:
so...you said he get this far because spamming maxim ? i don't think so pal
without maxim he'll win both of us ten time
Yeah, he'd beat us, that's not the point. Point is, I don't remember him winning any tourneys and Devm is arguably better.
But I see you're some kind of VI lickspittle who won't listen to contradicting ideas. So enjoy watching the Maxims a-move around, good luck to ya.
i think you mistake zarok the maxim master with VonIvan sir and VonIvan is on top with SU you can easily check it by the ladder secondly he doesn't main maxim spam Basically he main anything that are non meta. Maxim got nerf that mean our maxim lord mission has been successful not lost some big advantage he always against maxim since god only know when
Yeah, he's on top with SU. Maxim nerf was only recently. Maybe you've been living under a rock but VI has been spamming 7+ Maxims for the past 4 years.
Also to anyone thinking about OKW dominance, check these stats:
18 allied wins, 10 Axis :/
so starting resources for okw is 690 and no need for early tier vs 570-160 = 410. Earlier unlock of absolute'y every unit type in adition to that.
jove nogano. Okw 3 out of 3. Vonivan didnt take a single game vs devm's okw out of those i watched.
Patchers seems unaware of basic things.
DevM is top seeded player in the game. VonIvan is, what, 20th? 10th, tops? And with his Maxim spam abuse nerfed, he lost some of his big advantage.
Now that doesn't mean you're wrong about starting resources. But your logic that "Best player beats worse player with OKW, so OKW OP" is terrible.
It should be doctrinal and put on a cmdr + tier4. A way to good unit to be non doctrinal. It can even have smoke. This alone can win match. All formats.
Doctrinal? A bit much.
"This alone can win match. All formats."
Wrong. It needs a lot of support and it's hard to get both it and a panther. By the time you've managed that, the allies have a ton of mediums.
You should play Axis. I mean, you threw a tantrum and claimed to quit the game but since you have decided not to keep you word, may as well play Axis, see how wrong you are.
you are full of shit. Volks just wipe the floor against all mainline infantry. and when things don't go your way you can always throw the retarded flame nade or the cheap infiltration skill nades to swing things in your favor.
Just look at this as example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCfmsWycFxg even though USF was clearly better at the beginning, OKW held his own and even had a slight advantage on the first 5 minutes. but if the okw player actually got the better engagements, this would be pretty much over as soon as it started.
Wow. "You are full of shit".
One game does not prove a point. Especially not this one, since the player mismanaged his riflemen. Check the stats before frothing at the mouth and raging about posts on a forum. If you can find some numbers that show I'm wrong, that'll do. Your first attempt to disprove me was an abortive failure. Better luck next time.
PS Skill nades are as easily dodged as regular nades due to the animation. Flame nades the same. Your troops will tell you when to move. But really we're talking about small arms, not nades and other micro tips and tricks. Try to focus, you'll understand better.
You really want to honestly try to argue that a zook or piat blob is better than a volkshreck blob was? Because it's not. Volks when they had the shrecks would hit vet5 (which rifles and tommies don't even have) super fast, especially if someone fielded light vehicles, so their kar98s would make gen able to hold out against even single bar rifles in some cases. They are also cheaper than rifles, and only lose 20% of the squad's firepower as opposed to 40 for double zook rifles (because a single zook won't do shit). Also, shrecks are unarguably the far superior weapon compared to zooks and piats, and against the allies' generally lower armor (shermans, t34s, cromwells compared to okw p4, panther, and vetted ost equivalents), they have a much larger chance of penning their targets than zooks even at max range. Piats missed a lot, and tommies suck when you don't micro them. Nuff said about that. All this combined made volkshrecks a unit that could fight literally anything with very little skill involved.
Inb4 "allied fanboy go kys"
A lot of what you said was right.
But I didn't say that zooks etc were as good shreks.
Am saying they cause a similar problem. Handheld AT blob is an option for the allies and they shut down the axis mediums pretty well. The argument that Volks were shutting down allied mediums was valid. But almost the same thing is happening with zooks, piat blobs.
I agree, zooks aren't as lethal and they won't deal with the heavy tanks like shreks did. But still, it's mainline infantry able to shut down medium tanks when it should be the other way round.
Thank god other people noticed this too... OKW is just ridiculously on the first 5 minutes of the game, you can't output the same firepower because their units are cheap and too strong. OKW have almost no manpower problems beside teching. If you don't wipe a few squads on the 5-15 minute mark you are doomed late game with the terminators volks
also, another question for the list: Why the hell OKW STILL have salvage?!
Tommies, Riflemen, Penals all have better damage output than Volks and can all be upgraded with handheld AT even though volks had their shreks removed 'cos "Not fair to have blob countering their hard counter". But it's ok that allies can have it. #Alliedfanboylogik
To me it seems that really only conscripts fare badly vs Volks. So perhaps something should be done about that. All other mainline infantry outperforms them in terms of power and functionality.
How do you feel the new USF mortar?
I played some USF games lately and I had the feeling it couldn't hit anything in all the games I did.
I had it quite close from a buidling and ask to fire at it and simply missed it half of the time. I mean it wasn't even able to touch a building at mid range and on vision.
I had it just behind my rifles and firing at volks/sturm standing on no cover/red cover on a road and it didn't kill/damage anything during all the fight.
I had it firing at garrisoned building and it simply never kill any model on the building. It took 3-4 barrages to get the squad half life inside.
Those are only examples, moments I saw in live being like "what are you doing fu.king mortar!!". I thought it could simply be bad luck but in fact, in a 10 games raw I didn't feel any moment the mortar performed well enough for the investment. I get it several time to vet3 indeed but it never had a critical impact, just doing some AOE damage randomly during the game lenght till vet3.
As opposed, I also played some Ostheer games and used the mortar and regularly kill 1-2 models per shell and some time almost all the squad.
I'll say "as usual" the Ostheer mortar performs well and it can't be bad luck if when I play Ostheer my mortar does well and when I play USF it doesn't...
I personally came to the conclusion the USF mortar became quite useless unless having some lucky moments, only good for smoke shell.
So I went back for the pak howi and get this impact a support weapon should deliver when you use it.
Now I know the USF mortar was overperforming before, I was playing intensively Ostheer during all that time but I have the impression it went from OP to useless...
Snap back to reality, OH there goes gravity, OH there's goes OP-shit
Not stupidly OP =/= useless. Welcome to balance.
what i am saying is that it's the same for everyone, whatever the faction or even map side.
one side got a building near its cutoff, but the other got a longer distance to reach middle vp (just an exemple)
at the end, it's always the same issue : Adapt or whine but whining won't make you win.
Blizzards were also the same for everyone. People complained until they were removed and thank god they were. They spoiled gameplay.
The claim here is that buildings are spoiling gameplay.
If everyone took your advice, there'd be no complaints and no improvements. So stop whining about people raising important issues.
The bottom right fuel on Moscow winter/summer compared the upper left is an issue.
