    • One comment not sure how the plane dynamics changed but I have noticed that refullng takes alot longer it went from 14 min approx to 30.

      Oh one more thing.

      Not sure why you would build Militia now, as they have the same requirements to build as Infantry. Other, than cost of course.


      Loving it though keep up the good work.

      I just came online to a player disembarking at one of my cities.3h 30 something mins.
      I i set a militia to build and 4 more with High Command queue.
      At 1 every 45 minutes, I was going to have 5 in city before he reached.
      I Actually destroyed landing party with a destroyer and planes, but these new militia would have done the job

      Says who? Germany at the start of the WW2 invasion of France fielded about 2.5 million army troops and 2500 tanks (LTs). This sort of starting army is represented in CoW by ~20 inf units + a few AA and AT, and 5 armor. 2,500,000 / 20+ = ~100,000 troops per inf unit. How many tanks or WW2 subs would you need to hold 100,000 troops? (25-50 crew per U-boat!)

      About Destroyer units being meant to represent a Destroyer squadron... Again, did Bytro say this? That doesn't seem to fit with game experience (i.e. they are fast to produce etc.) And I had already edited my original post to clarify that a DD would have maybe a 1% chance of defeating a Cruiser with torpedoes if it could somehow sneak up on it (at night in a fijord or whatever) and it happened to be a torpedo-equipped DD... But the DD would still be sunk by gunnery too in that most lucky case. The guns of bigger ships just overwhelmed smaller ships, and at sea having significantly longer-range guns was like using artillery against a small number of infantry walking across a very long field. (Yes I am fully aware that there are rare cases of a Destroyer sinking a cruiser, mostly with massed attacks in desperation to hold off Japanese surface fleets in the Pacific, or with the Japanese's uniquely long range Type 93 torpedoes.) Like I said, Cruisers are the rock to the Destroyer scissors. If someone told you your enemy had a huge fleet of Destroyers, you should say "We must build more Cruisers then!", because you would know your Cruisers would swat the DDs like flies. That is not represented well here, it seems. Destroyers are just much better all-around units because of their very high attack value vs subs.

      About the 'epic' nature of Battleships, I agree that they aren't that amazing in CoW standard either. (In Supremacy they were more realistically kindof an 'ultimate' unit which would take over the map with their awesome range should one player get them in the water first.) You didn't see them much in CoW standard (never ever in 16-day competitive games) simply because of the prohibitive cost to build one. But if you bring Destroyers to a Battleship fight, you really shouldn't expect to win!
    • Please, please, please do not restrict victory points and building only to cities. As many have said before, this is turning into CoN. I love CoW and have been playing for about 2 years. This would kill my spirit and I really love this game. In the test event, my cities were overrun, and although I am playing a good defense, i cannot produce anything else to oprevent me from losing
    • I posted a concern over cost of upgrading units. I see that new units are produced at the upgraded value, so its only units produced prior to the research upgrade need upgrading. That does somewhat change the dynamics of upgrading. I think now the system may be ok, but needs to take a few things into consideration.

      First of all, having worked in factories upgrading equipment for a lifetime, I can tell you that manpower requirements always go down, not up, when you upgrade. In the game, the cost in manpower to upgrade was very high. While other resources may be required for an upgrade, manpower should not. In fact, you might even consider to bonus back some manpower or other materials after upgrading.
    • Because strategic bombers don't have escorts they have their own Anti-Air.

    • Tank destroyers have been made fragile in comparison to the rest of the armor faction, allied light armor/unarmoured units don't fair well against light tanks, and tank destroyers don't deal that much damage defensively, in fact, light tanks will deal more damage to lightly armored units than a tank destroyer will do defensively to light armored units, even medium tanks deal more damage to light armor than a tank destroyer.

      Edit: I think that strategic bombers are unbalanced in terms of dealing damage to units, but you fixed the building damage splendidly, but don't reduce the anti-air damage please.
      Now to my opinion part: The anti-air on strategic bombers could go up as they've not had interceptors able to escort them past level three strategic bombers. (Unless you have elite I believe)

    • I like the way the ordnance factory was carved in there. It creates a nice tactical decision making point. I also like the creation of the specific factories for producing units wothout any other factories needed. It speeds up things quite a bit in the beginning game as far as troop building.

      What a treat to build Tac Bombers in a lvl 1 air factory so quicky in the game. While I really appreciated the gift, I think it doesn't hurt to requite little investment to get TACS.
    • So i have played a few of the round 2 games and i noticed that the research tab is basically no different from the current one because when you research most of the first level 1 units you have no resources left, by the time your resources replenish everything is already available for research, it would be a better improvement if you fixed it by having our resources replenish faster and the availability of the researchable units spread out so it would take 2 to 3 days longer till you can research a medium and level 2 light tank so we aren't so far behind on our research

      then it would make sense to have them have more defense dmg vs aircraft then offense? :D

      I suck at COW
      idk what else to put here :D
    • I also have an idea for the research tab for each nation only in the 25 player map if possible, okay instead of having all nations research all the same why not make it more realistic starting with Germany, Germany was producing panzer I, II, III and IV before the war so those should already be researched and didn't start producing panzer V, VI till 1943 so those shouldn't be researched till you reach the required year i'll make a table on how the whole research tab should look like, and tomorrow ill do a Soviet and USA.

      Only certain buildings are restricted to cities, those for manufacturing.

      This makes sense, to build a bunch of manufacturing buildings in the middle of no where with no population to support is unrealistic. The current dynamic makes capturing cities very important.

      I really like the current dynamic please dont change this.

      Quick question about plane refueling.

      I have noticed that the refueling times change for some reason, sometimes they are 30 min and others they are 45 min or something else -- what is the basis for plane refueling? ?(
      The level of the airbase you are refueling at. (And airbases in cities are less efficient than those in a rural province, similar to infrastructure.)
