Units and Abilities

We wanted to improve the usability and appeal for abilities which we felt were underperforming. Some abilities were toned down, such as the ZIS Barrage ability, which we found to be too cost effective given its average damage inflicted. Other abilities such as the IL-2 were inflicting significantly less damage per use and therefore were improved to bring them in line with most other elements within the game.

  • Now increases unit rate of fire by 25%
  • Hull down now increases unit range by 25%

Artillery Field Officer :

  • Now increases infantry accuracy by 15%
  • Now increases vehicle rate of fire by 15%

Weapon Priority System :

  • Improved the way weapons choose their targets, this should result in more logical target choices and better unit control

  • User choice will have a higher weight within the weapon priority system

Bug Fixes:

Ostruppen

  • Ostruppen Weapon damage from 8 to 16

There was a data error in the ostruppens weapon where it was doing less damage than we had originally calculated. This was making the unit actually worse than other rifle units (for cost) even when utilizing its in cover bonus.

Assault Grenadiers

  • Dispatch Cost from 280 manpower to 200 manpower and 50 munitions
  • Reinforcement and population cost remain the same as prior

This change is to give a temporary gate to the deployment of these units as players are finding it very difficult to deal with them at the start. The munition cost will gate the unit by a few minutes as well as make deploying these units limit the players means to get other munitions upgrades such as Panzerschrecks on the Mechanized Assault Group or a flame halftrack.

Forward HQ

  • Addressed an issue where the forward HQ was not properly costing the player resources

There was a case where this ability was not charging the players resources when used (no we’re not telling you exactly how).

Other

  • Addressed two issues causing crashes


Balance

Maxim

  • Suppression from 0.02 to 0.0175

MG42

  • Suppressed suppression multiplier from 1 to 0.9
  • Suppression from 0.0085 to 0.009

Small Arms Weapon Profiles

Focus on better aligning infantry small arms within our health/damage system. This reduces the amount of overkill and better enables us to control how small arms functions within the game.

Units and Abilities

The KV-8 has seen its damage profile adjusted such that it no longer front loads the majority of its damage over a 10 second period. This will result in more of a reaction period for players under fire. The overall DPS of the KV-8 was also reduced from 18 to 15 damage per second. Other abilities have had their cost adjusted to better reflect their value in game.

Updates

  • An experimental "-fast_camera" option has been added to the game which dramatically increases the speed at which your in-game camera moves.

Depending on the community's feedback to this feature, we will be fully supporting this feature in future patches.

  • Removed the AI class for medium vehicles and added the AI class for stationary infantry to better represent actual gameplay roles of different units.
  • Soviet AI should build the Barracks less often and the Weapon Support Centre more often due to better code for breaking ties in building utility.
  • AI no longer tries to build units to kill enemy bunkers and base buildings unless it has seen them.(Prevents AI from wanting to build mortars and AT in early game)
  • AI will spend less resources reinforcing squads that aren’t useful.
  • AI squads the have waited too long to reinforce will now become aggressive instead of standing in the base forever.

  • AI will now use Panzer Blitz less often and only when it is low on health.
  • Adjusted ratings for Penal Troops, Soviet Team Weapons, Shock Troops, and vehicles with rear mounted weapons.

Balance
Building Functionality
Our goal was to improve the player’s capacity to make decisions when using garrisons within the game. To achieve this, we improved the readability of a garrison’s structural integrity, making damage more consistent and in turn making it easier to calculate the risks associated with the use of said garrison. Buildings will be far less prone to being knocked down to single attacks at full health as a result.
Building Critical System

  • Removed the random chance for AOE weapons to inflict up to 6x their AOE radius when exploding near a garrison.

Unit Behavior

  • Infantry flamethrower damage modifier vs. garrisons from 1 to 1.6
  • Mortar damage modifier vs. garrisons from 0.25 to 0.75

Unit Animation Behavior Modifications
This change enables squads to fire within a 180 degree arc, better enabling them to engage other squads while executing combat maneuvers. Previously, their firing arc was far more restricted which lead to a loss of DPS when ordering squads to move.

Veterancy Rework

AI Improvements

  • AI will no longer attack destroyed HQs or invisible targets.
  • AI on easy and normal difficulty should clump their units together less.
  • AI will no longer try to get a damage vehicle repaired by a squad inside a vehicle.

Command Point System Overhaul

  • Command Points are now earned at twice the rate as before
  • Commander abilities have had their Command Point requirement doubled

The net effect is that the timing of unlocking Commander abilities should be mostly the same, and players should not expect to see much change from before.

Overall the command point changes are intended to give more variety in when things are available. We previously worked within a 7 point range and have increased that to a 16 point range to allow us more control over this sort of timing. The main driving force behind the change was allowing some units to come out earlier without having them be available immediately at the start of the game, specifically some of the new units. There were some other abilities that also tend to come later than we felt best, but where moving them a whole point sooner would have had to large of an effect on the game’s flow. Examples of this are the weaker tank call ins and economic abilities.

Additionally, we broke up later game abilities a bit more to add variety in when they come out and distinguish them from each other. In general, unit Call-Ins are available sooner than global abilities and upgrades as these are more often gated by resource cost.

  • IS-2 from 9 CP to 10 CP
  • Incendiary Artillery from 6 CP to 7 CP
  • KV-1 from 7 CP to 8 CP
  • Partisan Tank Hunters from 1 CP to 2 CP

Units and Abilities

Better align unit performance with its effectiveness in game. A few notable changes include: reduced lethality on the IL-2, it still has the capacity to wipe out a squad but should be a bit more forgiving now. Combat engineers saw a price decrease to better reflect their in-game value. S-mine fields had a few adjustments to increase their viability as well.

PAK 43

  • No longer requires Battle Phase 2 to be constructed

Conscript Assault Package

  • Cost from 10 MU to 30 MU
  • Conscripts now get 3 PPSH sub machine guns

Precision Strike

  • Precision strike now deals the same amount of damage as the main barrage weapon
  • Added angle and distance scatter to B4 Precision Strike to bring it in line with similar abilities

IL-2 Sturmovik Attack

  • Damage from 20 to 8
  • Target lead in distance from 16 to 12
  • Target lead out distance from 8 to 10
  • Cost from 240 MU to 180 MU

S-Mine Field

  • Cost from 80 MU to 60 MU
  • Build time from 40s to 10s
  • Mine spacing from 13 to 7
  • Mine field can now be rotated to better enable placement

M5 Anti-air Package

  • Cost from 90 MU to 120 MU
  • Damage from 4.8 to 8

Panzer Tactician

  • Cost from 40 MU to 30 MU

222 Armored Car

  • 20mm cannon damage from 25 to 20
  • Upgrade cost from 70 MU to 55 MU

Target Weak Point

  • Target weak point now multiplies penetration by 2 rather than setting it to a static value of 1000
  • Brummbar target weak point cost from 30 MU to 40 MU

Combat Engineer

  • Cost from 240 MP to 210 MP

Blitzkrieg Tactics

  • Cost from 30 MU to 40 MU

Commanders

Tiger Ace and Soviet Industry were not consistent in terms of value relative to other commander abilities within the game. They were adjusted to better bring them in line while maintaining their unique flair and additional tactical and strategic value to the game. The Tiger Ace has had its extreme damage and health values removed to bring it in line with other units. It now contains the veterancy modifiers granted to a vet 3 Tiger I, maintaining its threat on the field. Soviet Industry has been moved to 3 CP. This reduces the impact of the commander to the early game preventing extremely early vehicle rushes. The increased CP pacing on this ability also makes the commander less punishing, as early manpower attrition is significantly less debilitating to the commander.

Elite Troops

  • Tiger Ace cost from 0 MP to 800 MP
  • Tiger Ace command point cost from 16 to 14
  • Tiger Ace no longer reduces all resources to 0. It now reduces MP by 25% and fuel by 90% until the Tiger Ace is destroyed
  • Tiger Ace previous veterancy modifiers replaced with Tiger veterancy modifiers; this removes the double health and damage in exchange for faster rate of fire, improved accuracy, and improved mobility. Tiger Ace retains its increased sight range and lethal coaxial/hull machine guns
  • Tiger Ace base acceleration/deceleration from 1.4/3 to 1.8/3.9
  • Tiger Ace base max speed from 3 to 3.9
  • Tiger Ace has gained the Target Weak Point ability to chew through enemy armor, drastically increasing its weapon penetration and stunning enemy crews
  • Model 24 Stun Grenade cost from 15 MU to 20 MU
  • Troop training recharge time from 2s to 30s
  • Troop training cost from 55 MP and 20 FU to 80 MP and 25 FU

Soviet Industry

  • Soviet Industry CP cost from 0 to 3

Garrison Cover

Units in garrisons were too vulnerable to small arms fire, reducing the desirability of garrisons. We want to better align the initial goal of softening garrison cover without removing its tactical value.

  • Small arms damage modifier vs. garrison cover from 0.65 to 0.55
  • Small arms accuracy modifier vs. garrison cover from 0.65 to 0.55

UI

  • Facing cones now appear in minimap.
  • Modal facing thresholds are now tuned to be more sensitive than
    non-modal facing thresholds. (Players don’t have to move the mouse as
    far to select facing when building bunkers)
  • Removed intermediate vertex cache and improved batching for a ~70%
    speedup in rendering UI visuals (also reduces memory pressure).
  • Aliased cursors and deleted duplicates for a small improvement in load times (also reduces memory pressure).
  • The Match chat window was not remembering its position/size from session to session. This should now be fixed.
  • The Match chat was not correctly joined when viewing a replay or
    starting a campaign mission. Players should now be put into a Match chat
    session whenever they host/join a Party or whenever you go into game
    (whichever comes first). Players will be automatically disconnected from
    the Match chat whenever they exit game or leave their Party (whichever
    comes last).

AI Behaviour

  • Skirmish AI now uses player abilities to produce called in units and no longer uses hidden units in the HQ.
  • AI no longer thinks that targets a squad can't damage are good targets.
  • Soviet skirmish AI now uses merge ability.
  • AITasks try harder to prevent interrupting abilities.
  • AITaskFallbackState now clears old paths when it is done moving so that units arriving at the HQ no longer oscillate.
  • AIForceAttackTactic understands units with limited firing angles should stay farther back.
  • AICombatTask no longer forces indirect fire weapons into the target
    area when the squad does not have a target or assigned position.
  • Code that checks if AI squads are in combat now understands that targeted abilities are attacks.
  • AIAbilityTactic now suggests assigned or current good targets to the LUA filter functions.
  • AICombatUtil has better stationary squad detection for abilities that barrage clumps of stationary squads.
  • AICaptureTask now runs tactics while capturing when possible.

AI Combat Ratings

  • Updated AI class and anti-class calculations to not use dynamic ranges that were causing problems.
  • Removed heavy/light structure AI class from data and replaced with one structure class.
  • AI now generates the AI info from Upgrades by reading the actions in Upgrades and no longer needs hard coded values.
  • AI CombatRatings now better detect which weapons cause suppression.
  • AI now checks ability based weapons in addition to the primary weapon to determine if a squad uses indirect fire.

Hot Keys and Input Changes

The following Hot Keys have been added:

  • Home: Move camera to starting position.
  • Semicolon: Select all of your units on screen.
  • Control+Alt+Comma/Control+F1: Select all idle builders.
  • Control+Alt+Period: Select all idle infantry.
  • Control+Alt+Comma: Select all idle vehicles.
  • Control+F2: Select all units.

Other input changes:

  • The Shift key can be used to modify all hotkeys that set your selection. For example, Control+1 sets a control group to your selection, Control+Shift+1 adds or removes your selection from a control group.
  • When holding the Control key down and clicking a unit in the global unit control, all units of that type will be selected.
  • State, duration and proximity heuristics have been added to the code that selects the single squad caster to cast an ability, generally improving distribution. This means that if you rapidly issue three grenade tosses, and have three squads selected that can throw a grenade, you will throw three grenades, and generally the squad closest to each target will do the throwing. This improves several situations where it felt like your abilities were not being cast, but really a single squad was being told to do multiple things.
  • Demo charges have been set to single squad caster.

Updates and Bug Fixes

Resolution to a number of UI and gameplay related issues.

  • Addressed an issue where Loadout changes were not being saved when the game was exited
  • Fixed various translation and text issues
  • Addressed a bug preventing Team Chat from working properly
  • Addressed issues with improper text display
  • Fixed an issue with map entry points not functioning correctly
  • Fixed an issue preventing some players from inviting friends to a game
  • Addressed an issue where the Opel Blitz could block line of sight when wrecked
  • German Tanks can no longer Target Weak Point ability with a main gun critical
  • Fixed various bugs with UI

Small Arms Weapon Profiles

The goal is to improve tactics by better defining unit roles; thereby, increasing the importance of unit positioning relative to cover. A weapon profile defines the distribution of damage over distance. Previously, the profiles were generally flat and did not fully characterize the strengths and weaknesses of a squad. Now, a Pioneer squad with a MP40 submachine gun has a very high damage output at close range but a substantially lower damage output at max range. The distribution of damage is no longer blended between ranges; this combined with the increased weapon lethality should reduce the tendency to rush infantry at one another.

Keep in mind the weapon profiles represent the damage output of only a handful of units in live. Each profile will see an increase or decrease in damage output depending on the squad’s value. For example, a 100 manpower pioneer squad might do less close range damage than a 300 manpower Grenadier squad despite the pioneer MP40 submachine gun being a close range weapon. Hence, the value of a unit scales the weapon profile accordingly.

Germans

  • KAR 98 now uses the bolt-action rifle weapon profile
  • MP40 now uses the submachine gun weapon profile
  • MP44 now uses the assault rifle weapon profile
  • G43 now uses the carbine rifle weapon profile
  • LMG42 now uses the light machine gun weapon profile
  • Luger 9mm pistol now uses the pistol weapon profile

Soviets

  • Mosin Nagant now uses the bolt-action rifle weapon profile
  • SVT now uses the carbine rifle weapon profile
  • PPSH now uses the submachine gun weapon profile
  • DP-28 now uses the light machinegun weapon profile

Grenade Explosive Profiles - Grenades

This change removes the chance of grenades missing targets on the outer radius of their explosions. The average damage done to units in this outer radius under the previous structure was converted into a set
value to reduce edge cases that resulted in extremely high or low damage being dealt. Grenades will feel more consistent in their damage output as a result.

  • Small arms lethality increased by 15%

Retreat Modifiers

This change helps counteract the increased lethality on small arms; enable players to better preserve their units.

  • Received accuracy from 0.5 to 0.4; increasing squad durability against small arms fire on retreat

Veterancy

Veterancy that previously provided increased armor has been replaced with received accuracy. The received accuracy variable functions almost identical to the use of armor. However, it also acts to reduce unit accuracy over-capping – i.e. units that currently have more accuracy than they. As units gain veterancy, their additional accuracy values will be countered by the received accuracy reduction on other units.

  • Infantry veterancy which provided armor was replaced with received accuracy
    • e.g. 1.30x armor now provides 0.77x received accuracy
  • Units which received price adjustments have had their required experience per level adjusted accordingly.

Vehicle Pathing

This addresses an issue where vehicles would potentially move away from the ordered position as part of their three point turn plan. This could potentially confuse the player causing them to issue another order which would further antagonize the issue by causing the vehicle to move further away from the objective.

Light Vehicle Turn Plan

  • Removed three point turns from light vehicles

Pacing and Tech Progression

The goal of this change is to slow down the introduction of medium and heavy vehicles within the game and better integrate light vehicles into early combat scenarios. This results in medium and heavy armor being set back by about 2 minutes across the board.

Soviet Starting Resources

  • Manpower from 490 to 350

Soviet Base Structures

  • Motor Depot fuel cost from 90 FU to 140 FU
  • Tank Depot fuel cost from 90 FU to 140 FU

German Starting Resources

  • Manpower from 520 to 360

German Battle Phases

  • Battle phase 1 from 25 FU to 45 FU

  • Commander abilities in the customizer now display from lowest to highest, top to bottom

Ability Barrage Radius

This feature adjusts the size of an abilities barrage radius based on the approximate amount of scatter that will occur. Scatter generally increases based on distance to target, firing from max range will result in reduced accuracy.

  • Barrage abilities from mortars or artillery units now display increases in weapon scatter based on distance

Balance Changes

Command Point Pacing

All heavy vehicle dispatches have had their command point cost increased by 1 to better align them with the pacing and tech progression changes and goals. Saving for a heavy vehicle should remain a viable strategy, the goal is to increase the risk of such a strategy to better reflect its potential value if pulled off successfully.

  • Tiger command point cost from 10 to 11
  • Tiger Ace command point cost from 14 to 15
  • Elefant command point cost from 11 to 12
  • IS-2 command point cost from 10 to 11
  • ISU-152 command point cost from 11 to 12
  • KV-2 command point cost from 11 to 12
  • StuG III E command point cost from 5 to 6

Units and Abilities

A number of iterations were made to weapon profiles and abilities to improve early game infantry combat.

Osttruppen

  • The low accuracy on the Osttruppen rifle led to their weapon output feeling very inconsistent. This was addressed by increasing their accuracy while reducing the damage done per shot. Additional modifications were made to improve the viability of the Osttruppen at all stages of the game, such as increasing their capture rate to 1. Osttruppen will remain slightly combat inefficient relative to Grenadiers.
    • Cover bonus from 1.75x accuracy to 2x accuracy
    • Accuracy from 0.21/0.2/0.19 to 0.45/0.4/.35
    • Damage from 16 to 8
    • Cooldown from 0.5-1 to 0.75-1.25
    • Cooldown near modifier from 0 to 0.125
    • Wind down from 1.625 to 1.3
    • Moving cooldown from 2 to 1.5
    • Capture rate from 0.5 to 1

Grenadier

  • The LMG42 had its weapon profile adjusted so that it performs stronger at long range and weaker at short range. In its previous form, it made assaults by short range units very difficult to execute due to its extreme close range damage output. This further strengthens the long range orientation of the LMG42 and the counterplay between itself and short range weaponry.
    • LMG42 accuracy from 0.47/0.44/0.41 to 0.56/0.44/.038
    • LMG42 Aim time multiplier from 0.5/0.75/1 to 0.75/0.875/1
    • LMG42 Fire aim time from 0.25-0.625 to 0.25-0.5
    • LMG42 Post firing aim time from 0.5 to 0.25
    • LMG42 Ready aim time from 1.25-2 to 0..625-1
    • LMG42 Burst duration multiplier from 3/2/1 to 0.75/1.25/1.5
    • LMG42 Burst length from 0.5-0.75 to 0.5-1
    • LMG42 range distance mid from 20 to 28
    • LMG42 Rate of fire multiplier from 1/0.875/0.9375 to 1/1.125/1.25 LMG42 Cooldown duration multiplier from 0.5/0.675/0.85 to 0.75/0.875/1
    • LMG42 Reload frequency from 4 to 6
  • This adjusts the G43 to more closely function as a carbine type weapon profile. It reduces the Grenadier long range damage output while increasing mid to short range DPS. Additionally, this weapon now performs better on the move, making it ideal for tactical flanks.
    • G43 accuracy from 0.55/0.5/0.45 to 0.55/0.42/0.37
    • G43 no longer gains a bonus accuracy vs. light, heavy, and garrison cover
    • G43 Moving accuracy from 0.6 to 0.8
    • G43 Moving cooldown from 2 to 0.5
    • G43 Range distance near from 0 to 6
    • G43 Range distance mid from 25 to 18
    • G43 upgrade cost from 60 MU to 45 MU
  • Rifle-grenade cost increased to better align it with similar grenades, such as the RGD-42 which cost 30 munitions. Although the rifle-grenade has a greater range than the RGD-42, its explosive radius is smaller and less lethal.
    • Rifle-grenade munition cost from 25 to 30
  • These changes slightly reduce the efficiency of the Grenadier squad. The intent is to reduce Grenadier blobbing and encourage the use of combined arms.
    • Population from 6 to 7
    • Grenadiers can now only upgrade to either the LMG42 or G43, not both.

Panzer Grenadier

  • This adjusts the G43 to more closely function as a carbine type weapon profile. It increases the Panzer
    Grenadier long range damage output while decreasing its mid to short range DPS. Additionally, this weapon now performs better on the moving, making it ideal for tactical flanks.
    • G43 Accuracy from 0.65/0.6/0.55 to 0.65/0.52/0.47
    • G43 no longer gains a bonus accuracy vs. light, heavy, and garrison cover
    • G43 Moving accuracy from 0.6 to 0.8
    • G43 Moving cooldown from 2 to 0.5
    • G43 Range distance near from 0 to 6
    • G43 Range distance mid from 25 to 18
  • The Panzer Grenadier squad over performed for its cost. These two changes lower its performance to better reflect its cost to value.
    • Armor from 1.2 to 1
    • MP44 accuracy from 0.58/0.45/0.4 to 0.56/0.45/0.4

Pioneer

  • These changes reduced the combat potency of Pioneers to better reflect their intended role as a utility unit. The Pioneer squad still remains combat viable, but do so at a premium cost.
    • Bonus accuracy from 1.2 to 1.15
    • Accuracy from 0.45/0.2/0.1 to 0.35/0.2/0.1

Combat Engineer

  • Combat Engineers were under performing for cost; similar to the Pioneer changes above they will perform at a slight cost premium to reflect their role as a utility unit.
    • Manpower cost from 190 to 170
    • Build time from 19 to 17

Conscript

  • This change helps resolve the long range damage disparity between Grenadiers and Conscript. As a result, Conscripts can now engage Grenadiers on more equal footing.
    • Mosin Nagant accuracy from 0.45/0.35/0.25 to 0.45/0.39/0.30
    • Moving accuracy from 0.4 to 0.5
  • This change better aligns the risk vs. reward of using assault type weapons. More damage will be inflicted on approach to counter the received damage.
    • PPSH moving accuracy from 0.5 to 0.8

Partisans and Irregulars

  • This maintains consistency in the functionality of the Partisan LMG42 and DP-28 relative to the
    Grenadier LMG42 and Guard Riflemen DP-28 upgrade. It also better defines the units long range role.
    • LMG42 weapon profile adjusted to be consistent with changes to Grenadier LMG42
    • DP-28 weapon profile adjusted to function similar to the LMG42
  • This change better aligns the risk vs. reward of using assault type weapons. More damage will be inflicted on approach to counter balance received damage.
    • PPSH moving accuracy from 0.375 to 0.6
  • With the LMG profile adjustments, Irregulars are worth slightly more.
    • Irregulars cost from 180 to 190
    • Reinforcement time from 2.25 to 2.375

Guard Riflemen

  • Guard Riflemen were underperforming for their cost. The range of the PTRS was also inconsistent with other hand held AT weaponry such as the Panzerschreck – which is currently set to 35. This avoids scenarios were skilled players could leverage this range to damage vehicles without taking reciprocating fire. The Mosin Nagant also saw an increase to its long range damage output to reduce the disparity between the Mosin and the Kar 98.
    • Manpower cost from 360 to 330
    • Population from 9 to 8
    • DP-28 rescaled to use the new LMG42 weapon profile
    • DP-28 upgrade cost from 100 MU to 75 MU
    • Guard Mosin Nagant accuracy from 0.7/0.55/0.45 to 0.65/0.58/0.46
    • Guard Mosin Nagant Moving accuracy from 0.6 to 0.75
    • Guard Mosin Nagant Moving cooldown from 1.25 to 0.5
    • PTRS range from 45 to 40

Blitzkrieg

  • Blitzkrieg enabled German armor to escape potentially deadly situation at a fairly low cost. This placed German armor in a very advantageous position relative to Soviet armor, as they could take greater risk while sustaining lower casualties on average. Other issues, such as awkward movement behavior or unrealistic accuracy, made the ability feel a bit cheap and magical. This change synergizes well with the recent modifications to acceleration, as vehicles will be far more responsive while the ability is active.
    • Now provides 1.6x acceleration
    • Received accuracy modifier from 0.5 to 0.75
    • Speed and accuracy modifier removed
    • Munition cost from 40 to 30

Overdrive

  • The reduction in max speed helps prevent awkward movement behavior on the M3 and M5.
    • Now provides 1.6x acceleration
    • Received accuracy modifier from 0.5 to 0.75
    • Cost from 0 MU to 10 MU

Ram

  • Currently, ram is being used as a crowd control measure to disable other vehicles. The intent isn’t for a full health T34 to ram other vehicles; instead, ram should be used when the T34 is near death to highlight its usage as a last resort type ability.
    • No longer causes instant main gun destroyed critical
    • Now has a chance to cause one of the follow criticals to occur: light engine damage, heavy engine damage, immobilization, or main gun destroyed. The chance is weighed such that light engine damage has the highest occurrence where main gun destroyed has the lowest.

Marked Vehicle

  • These changes prevent an issue where units could be destroyed in 1 or 2 hits from multiple marked targets on the enemy vehicle applying simultaneously. It also reduces the impact of the ability as we felt it provided too great an advantage to Soviet armor in the previous state.
    • No longer stacks multiple times
    • Reduced bonus damage modifier from 50% to 35%

Support Team Modifications

A number of modifications were made to support weapons designed to increase their utility on the battle field. For example, heavy machine guns were given increased penetration enabling them to act as a soft counter to light vehicles.

Weapon Teams

  • Previously, weapon teams would receive +25% more damage from all sources. This modifier has been replaced with a +25% received accuracy value. Tank fire and grenades will be less effective vs. weapon teams as a result; small arms fire remains relatively unchanged.

AOE Profiles

  • Very similar to the changes made to grenade AOE profiles. Long and mid-range AOE no longer has a chance to miss its target, the weapon profile damage has been averaged out to
    compensate. Slight adjustments to AOE radius or distance values were made on a number of support teams to better align them with their intended performance.

105mm Howitzer

  • These changes reduce the viability of artillery saturation on the opposing player’s base. Additionally, howitzers should feel more organic with the changes to reload.
    • Reload time from 2.75 to 2.25-2.75
    • Shots fired per barrage from 12 to 6
    • Crew size from 3 to 4

152mm Howitzer

  • These changes reduce the viability of artillery saturation on the opposing player’s base. Additionally,
    howitzers should feel more organic with the changes to reload. Shots fired per barrage from 8 to 4
    • Reload time from 3 to 2.8-3.2
    • Barrage recharge time from 120s to 90s
    • Crew size from 3 to 4

PAK 40

  • Medium and heavy vehicle potency has been increased with this update, these changes help offset this increased potency by improving the performance and reliability of AT guns.
    • Accuracy from 0.055/0.0425/0.03 to 0.06/0.05/.04
    • Reload time from 2.9 to 2.7-3.1
    • Penetration from 170 to 190

PAK 43

  • Medium and heavy vehicle potency has been increased with this update, these changes help offset this increased potency by improving the performance and reliability of AT guns.
    • Accuracy from 0.055/0.0425/0.03 to 0.06/0.05/.04
    • Reload time from 3.65 to 3.5-3.8
    • Penetration from 400 to 340
    • Crew size from 3 to 4
    • Population from 21 to 18
    • Now has hold fire

ZIS 76mm Field Gun

  • Medium and heavy vehicle potency has been increased with this update, these changes help offset this
    increased potency by improving the performance and reliability of AT guns. The damage output of the ZIS Field Gun barrage will now feel more consistent as a result of the new AOE profiles.
    • Accuracy from 0.055/0.0425/0.03 to 0.06/0.05/.04
    • Penetration from 170 to 180

B4 203mm Howitzer

  • Adjusted performance of B4 to be more in line with the ISU-152.
    • Direct fire penetration from 1000 to 300
    • Direct fire is now on a shared recharge timer with barrage and precision strike
    • Recharge timer on barrage from 55 to 60

MG42

  • HMG teams now act as a soft counter to light vehicles. This diversified the tactics available to players when encountering heavy use of light vehicles in the early game.
    • Penetration from 1/1/1 to 2.2/1.8/1.4

53K 45mm AT Gun

  • Medium and heavy vehicle potency has been increased with this update, these changes help offset this
    increased potency by improving the performance and reliability of AT guns.
    • Accuracy from 0.03/0.0425/0.055 to 0.04/0.05/0.06
    • Reload time from 2.625 to 2.5-2.75

DSHK HMG

  • HMG teams now act as a soft counter to light vehicles. This diversified the tactics available to players when encountering heavy use of light vehicles in the early game. Refactored the performance of the Dshk HMG and resulting cost to make it easier to field.
    • Penetration from 1/1/1 to 2.5/2.0/1.5
    • Armor piercing rounds now provides 3x penetration rather than an additional +9 penetration at all ranges
    • Properly received the +25% received accuracy like all other team weapons
    • Damage from 12 to 10
    • Manpower cost from 360 to 300

Maxim HMG

  • HMG teams now act as a soft counter to light vehicles. This diversified the tactics available to players when encountering heavy use of light vehicles in the early game.
    • Penetration from 1/1/1 to 1.6/1.4/1.2

Vehicle Top Gunner

Increased damage output of vehicle top gunners, previously the upgrade added little value to the unit. The cost has been increased to better account for the value of this upgrade.

German Mounted MG42

  • Munition cost from 30 to 50

Soviet Mounted Dshk

  • Munition cost from 30 to 60

Vehicle Modifications

A number of modifications were made to medium and heavy vehicles to better align the units relative to one another. German vehicle penetration tended to be fairly high, resulting in a devaluation of Soviet armor values. These changes also seek to solidify unit roles and remove any ineffective units from the game.

AOE Profiles

  • Very similar to the changes made to grenade AOE profiles. Long and mid-range AOE no longer has a chance to miss its target, the weapon profile damage has been averaged out to compensate. Slight adjustments to AOE radius or distance values were made on a number of vehicles to better align them with their intended performance.

Mobility

  • The goal was to better distinguish light, medium and heavy vehicles from one another. By increasing the applicable speed range, we can better define light vehicle mobility relative to heavier units. Vehicle acceleration has also been adjusted to accomplish this goal.
    • Increased max speed by 1.2, tuned rotation to ensure smooth pathing
    • Negative cover from 1.4x to 1.5x max speed; vehicles move faster on roads
    • Adjusted vehicle terrain performance based on type. For example, vehicles with tracks can move through heavy and light cover easier than wheeled vehicles.
    • Acceleration is now properly functioning within the game; previously, vehicles incorrectly used deceleration to define the rate at which they accelerated, resulting in near instant max speed.

Vehicle Penetration

  • Vehicle penetration is now based on distance to target. High velocity weapons have a lower drop off than low velocity. High explosive weapons do not drop off over distance.

Vehicle Criticals

  • Engine damage criticals will only occur on the front or rear armor of a vehicle depending on engine
    position. For example, a Panzer IV no longer receives an engine critical if hit from the front. However, this does not impact weapons like the AT grenade which force criticals. Main gun destroyed criticals function in a similar manner, a SU-85 can no longer gain a main gun destroyed from a rear penetrating shot.
  • Rear armor hits now display a kicker to indicate to the player that the enemy tank has been exposed; similar to Company of Heroes.

222 Scout Car

  • The armor reduction increases the vulnerability of the Scout Car to small arms fire, increasing the
    overall risk associated with its use vs. these targets. The fuel increase furthers the risk to the player’s tech progression and overall use of this unit en masse.
    • Armor from 11 to 9
    • Manpower cost from 240 to 210
    • Fuel cost from 10 to 15

Panzer IV

  • The Panzer IV will continue to dominate the T34 in the anti-armor role but will perform worse versus infantry. That said, compared to the Panther, the Panzer IV does perform better vs. soft targets including infantry and light vehicles.
    • Armor from 160 to 180
    • Rear armor from 80 to 90
    • Reload from 5.75 to 5.3-5.7

Ostwind

  • Relative to the Panzer IV, the Ostwind performs extremely well vs. soft targets but is vulnerable to other
    medium vehicles. Relative to the T70, the Ostwind provides greater fire power at reduced mobility and increased durability. It also provides anti-air support.
    • Armor from 105 to 110
    • Rear armor from 52.5 to 55
    • Penetration from 35 to 40
    • Cooldown from 0.6 to 0.5-0.7
    • Distance scatter max from 2.15 to 2.9
    • Manpower from 320 to 280
    • Fuel from 115 to 100

StuG III G

  • The StuG III G fulfills the role of assault gun. These changes make it more effective vs. infantry and
    slightly worse versus medium and heavy vehicles. Relative to the T34, the StuG III G provides extremely high damage output but is fairly vulnerable to being flanked.
    • Armor from 160 to 140
    • Rear armor from 80 to 70
    • Penetration from 140 to 120
    • Health from 480 to 400
    • Reload time from 4 to 3.5-4.5
    • Distance scatter max from 6.5 to 4
    • Scatter angle from 7.5 to 5
    • Manpower from 280 to 230
    • Fuel from 95 to 80

StuG III E

  • The short barrel of the StuG III E makes it ideal vs. soft targets. An assault gun dedicated more towards the anti-infantry role relative to the StuG III G; these changes drastically improve its performance relative to cost.
    • Armor from 120 to 140
    • Rear armor from 35 to 70
    • Health from 320 to 400
    • Reload from 5.25 to 3.2-3.8
    • Manpower 160 to 200
    • Fuel from 55 to 75

Panther

  • The Panther provides the perfect combination of mobility and anti-tank capacity, making it the ideal counter to heavy armor. Its cutting edge suspension enables it to easily traverse even the roughest of terrain, enabling it to execute flanking maneuvers on unsuspecting armor.
    • Penetration from 170 to 240
    • Rear armor from 112.5 to 110
    • Reload from 6.45 to 5.8-6.7
    • Health from 960 to 800
    • Manpower from 520 to 490
    • Fuel from 145 to 175
    • Vet 2 now provides 10% armor and 160 health

Bummbar

  • Relative to the StuG III G, the Brummbar provides unparalleled infantry support and remains effective vs. medium vehicles.
    • Armor from 200 to 210
    • Rear armor from 87.5 to 105
    • Penetration from 75 to 120
    • Reload from 8.25 to 7.5-9
    • Distance scatter max from 1 to 4
    • Manpower from 560 to 470
    • Fuel from 140 to 160
    • Build time from 60 to 55

Panzerwerfer

  • The increased recharge timer offsets higher than desired artillery saturation.
    • Recharge time from 54 to 90

Tiger

  • Heavy armor saw an increase in performance to better highlight its tech placement. When a player transitions from light to medium armor, there is a very clear differentiation in the power of medium vehicles vs. light. This change better highlights the transition from medium to heavy while still retaining the role of medium vehicles in the late game. Lower rear armor maintains the value of flanking while increased combat potential better addresses the tech level of the vehicle. Additionally, the new AOE profile on the Tiger has significantly increased its anti-infantry performance.
    • Rear armor from 250 to 180
    • Penetration from 154 to 200
    • Reload from 5 to 4.7-5.3
    • Manpower from 720 to 640
    • Fuel from 200 to 230

Elefant

  • Heavy armor saw an increase in performance to better highlight its tech placement. When a player transitions from light to medium armor, there is a very clear differentiation in the
    power of medium vehicles vs. light. This change better highlights the transition from medium to heavy while still retaining the role of medium vehicles in the late game. Lower rear armor maintains the value of flanking while increased combat potential better addresses the tech level of the vehicle.
    • Penetration from 170 to 400
    • Scatter angle from 7.5 to 5
    • Reload from 8.55 to 8-9
    • Health from 1280 to 1040
    • Now has hold fire

M3A1 Scout Car

  • The intent was to increase the durability of the M3A1 to better balance the risk vs. reward that comes
    with the use of this unit. The added penetration on the top gunner will increase the performance of this unit vs. other lightly armored units, such as the 222 Scout Car or 251 Half-track. Additionally, we wanted to increase the impact of fielding light vehicles on the player’s tech progression.
    • Penetration on front gunner from 1/1/1 to 3.5/2.5/1.5
    • Health from 180 to 200
    • Manpower cost from 230 to 190
    • Fuel cost from 5 to 10

M5 Half-track

  • Penetration was added to both the 50 cal and Quad mounted gunner to bring this units performance in line with changes to other heavy weapons (MG42, Maxim, etc).
    • Penetration on front gunner from 1/1/1 to 3.5/2.5/1.5
    • Quad penetration from 1/1/1 to 2.5/2.0/1.5

T70

  • The T70 saw a number of changes to bring it in line with other light vehicles. The new AOE profiles improve the damage output of the T70 vs. infantry. Additionally, its mobility was improved to better enable its recon role and offensive capacities. This unit functions as a very effective hit and run unit or on the flank.
    • Armor from 55 to 70
    • Manpower from 160 to 200
    • Reload from 2.15 to 1.8-2.2
    • Fuel from 55 to 70

T34-76

  • The goal was to improve the anti-armor capacity of the T34 to open up the number of viable strategies available to Soviets. We wanted to improve the appeal of the third building by reducing its dependence on additional anti-tank units. Relative to the Panzer IV, the T34 will lose the majority of engagements unless it is able to capitalize on its superior mobility. However, the T34 outperforms the Panzer IV against soft targets. The previously low armor of the T34 provided it very little protection against most German anti-tank sources; the increase to 150 significantly changes this relationship.
    • Armor from 115 to 150
    • Rear armor from 70 to 75
    • Reload from 4.75 to 6.2-6.8
    • Damage from 120 to 160
    • Manpower from 280 to 310
    • Build time from 45 to 50
    • Fuel from 85 to 100
    • Penetration from 80 to 100

T34-85

  • Similar to the T34 in role, the T34-85 has gained a significant increase in anti-tank performance.
    • Armor from 124 to 160
    • Rear armor from 70 to 80
    • Penetration from 120 to 140
    • Reload time from 6 to 6-6.3
    • Manpower from 360 to 400
    • Fuel from 130 to 140
    • Double T34-85 call in manpower from 680 to 740
    • Double T34-85 call in fuel from 240 to 260

SU-76

  • The SU-76 fulfills the role of indirect fire support as well as anti-tank support. The AOE profile changes have improved the performance of its barrage, making it better suited at indirect fire vs. stationary targets.
    • Armor from 100 to 70
    • Rear armor from 50 to 35
    • Penetration from 93 to 100
    • Damage from 80 to 120
    • Reload from 2.375 to 2.9-3.4
    • Min range from 5 to 0
    • Scatter angle from 5.5 to 5
    • Distance scatter max from 10 to 4.7
    • Manpower cost from 160 to 210
    • Fuel cost from 55 to 75

SU-85

  • The SU-85 has been made more potent vs. medium and heavy armor while seeing a slight reduction in its durability. The mobility of the SU-85 has also been slightly improved to counter act the
    increase in mobility to other medium tanks.
    • Armor from 180 to 140
    • Rear armor from 80 to 70
    • Penetration from 170 to 190
    • Reload time from 4 to 3.8-4.2
    • Manpower from 320 to 340
    • Fuel from 115 to 120
    • Now has hold-fire

IS-2

  • Heavy armor saw an increase in performance to better highlight its tech placement. When a player transitions from light to medium armor, there is a very clear differentiation in the power of medium vehicles vs. light. This change better highlights the transition from medium to heavy while still retaining the role of medium vehicles in the late game. Lower rear armor maintains the value of flanking while increased combat potential better addresses the tech level of the vehicle. The IS-2’s anti-infantry capabilities have been reduced and compensated with increased anti-armor.
    • Armor from 325 to 340
    • Rear armor from 225 to 205
    • Penetration from 170 to 220
    • Damage from 240 to 160
    • Reload from 9 to 6.2-6.6
    • Distance scatter max from 2.86 to 5.7
    • Manpower from 760 to 640
    • Fuel from 240 to 230

ISU-152

  • Heavy armor saw an increase in performance to better highlight its tech placement. When a player transitions from light to medium armor, there is a very clear differentiation in the power of medium vehicles vs. light. This change better highlights the transition from medium to heavy while still retaining the role of medium vehicles in the late game. Lower rear armor maintains the value of flanking while increased combat potential better addresses the tech level of the vehicle.
    • Armor from 200 to 310
    • Rear armor from 100 to 155
    • Penetration from 150 to 230
    • Reload from 10 to 9-11
    • Health from 960 to 1040
    • Distance scatter max from 13.2 to 8.7
    • Manpower from 760 to 720
    • Now has hold fire

KV-1

  • The potency of its main gun has been increased in a similar manner to that of the T34. The KV-1 functions as a heavier variant to the T34 which is better able to engage medium armor. The KV-1
    is also more accurate on the move vs. infantry than the T34, making it slightly more effective against soft targets.
    • Rear armor from 120 to 145
    • Reload from 4.75 to 6.2-6.8
    • Damage from 120 to 160
    • Health from 960 to 720
    • Manpower from 440 to 370
    • Moving scatter penalty from 2 to 1.75

KV-2

  • Heavy armor saw an increase in performance to better highlight its tech placement. When a player transitions from light to medium armor, there is a very clear differentiation in the power of medium vehicles vs. light. This change better highlights the transition from medium to heavy while still retaining the role of medium vehicles in the late game. Lower rear armor maintains the value of flanking while increased combat potential better addresses the tech level of the vehicle.
    • Rear armor from 87.5 to 180
    • Penetration from 140 to 180
    • Damage from 320 to 240
    • Reload time from 16.75 to 10-12
    • Health from 960 to 800
    • Distance scatter max from 1 to 7.4
    • Manpower from 440 to 630
    • Fuel from 250 to 230

KV-8

  • The KV-8 saw a significant decrease in its health to better align its performance to cost.
    • Rear armor from 120 to 145
    • Health from 960 to 720

Katyusha

  • The increased recharge timer offsets higher than desired artillery saturation. Its recharge is still lower than the Panzerwerfer to better represent its distributed saturation.
    • Recharge time from 60 to 70

Pacing and Tech Progression

The higher cost on the T70 and SU-76 this update meant that a lower cost on T3 and T4 could be implemented.

Tankoviy Battalion Command

  • Manpower cost from 275 to 240
  • Fuel from 140 to 120

Mechanized Armor Kampaneya

  • Manpower cost from 275 to 240
