Inspired by latest Tales Of Heroes episode,me and 2 other friends played PE 1v1 "til total death" i mean some 16h in a row (2PCs) and what we found was interesting strat (dunno how far we can go with it tho)
The idea is to flip G43 upgrades with Shreck - 4-5 squads total,then T2 - T1(for 4man squads if bar's) ,Marder(to save ur ass vs Sherman),Teller mines...how good can this be vs hi lvl players if properly microed and executed ofc?

My current strat (mainly against american player with baracks):

-1 kettin(i always lose it so i wouldnt even dare make the second)
4 PG(first upgraded with g43,even vs brits cos of the slow ability vs bren squads)
research flame nades(for rifle close range rush)
-tier2
IHT to support and heal my 4 squads
-upgrade one pg with shrecks and put him inside the IHT
get base healing for my PG if i can spare the fuel
-Tier3
If he goes BAR ill make an armoured car and get the assault rifles for my PG
If he goes fast m8 ill make more shrecks and try to get out a marder.(flanked by the shrecked units ofc)

Then ill make a tier 4 and go panther battle groups (i may backtech to tier 1 and get increased squad sizes along the way if i need anti infantry)

Doctrines:

ill go Luftwaffe on open maps for the flak (e.g ango, langres or egletons)

ill go tank destroyer on closed maps or for the early teller mine(e.g semois or wrecked train)

on maps like wrecked train, it really depends.If i can rush to the enemy base early, teller mines are good. if i have pak issues in the center, luftwaffe is good.

Please tell me what u think guys, id love to hear from ANYONE(pros and begginers alike).

thanx for reading wink.gif

wow, u had over 1000 man power for much of the game! also why did u get useless tech like advanced repair when u only have 1 vehicle? save the fuel for other stuff! put shrecked units inside u infantry half track!
this player wasnt very good, and he was able to deal a blow to you since u barely put a hurtin on him when u had 75% of the map.use all ur resources effectively. fast aromoured car would ahve destroyed him

Question regarding IHTs & Shrecks:

If you have double AT efforts from the TD tree, is it possible to have more than 2 shrecks firing from the back of an IHT? For example, if you have 2, 4 man, squads, each with 2 shrecks load up, is there any way that you'd have all exposed PGs holding shrecks?

Thanks for any info you can provide, gents. smile.gif

I suggested this in a recent thread. I think the reply was that not all of your guys fire out of the halftrack. This means that if you double AT efforts, you are unlikely to have more than 2 or 3 firing out of the thing. You can also unload and reload until you get the desired mix.

...Still worth it imo.

first you need 3 upgrades:
1. kampfgruppe kompanie (unlocks shrecks) from T2
2. marder upgrade from T3
3. support command upgrade (unlocks PIV IST) from T4
Then you pay additional 120MP and 20 fuel
and then you can call 2 panthers for 1000mp (more times than once if you have 1000mp again)

Hi.

A question about the MHT.

When should I use barrage vs leaving it do its own thing?
When should I use incendiary?
Worth getting two of them?
What works best vs emplacements and buildings?
Def or Off vet?

Thanks

What's your view on the Hotchkiss? Is it worth using? If so, in what situations? What kind of strategy might work well with using one (or more?)?

Also, from the sound of it, I like the T1-T3 peacekeeping strategy but it's been a while since that's been posted, so is it still viable?
