  • Up to 50% faster AI
  • New Paratroop intercept rule that allows enemy fighters to intercept your attempted Paratroop drops

More patch features

Play WWII in Europe like never before and experience the thrill of sending your Panzers deep into Russia, the anticipation of victory in the battle for the Atlantic, or the exhilaration of finally turning the tide and storming fortress Europe!

 

New features (released with v1.02):

  • Forced March has been added to represent the rapid movement of large bodies of troops over long distances at high speed. However, this rapid movement incurs a significant cost in unit cohesion as it will tire the units, reducing their combat effectiveness for a short period.
  • The new submarine combat model enhances the use of submarines either as commerce raiders or in an ambush role against enemy surface vessels. Running in silent mode now also gives submarines a chance of passing undetected through enemy Destroyers.
  • The new Research system has three main features
    • Research progression every turn.
    • Progress is trackable.
    • Guaranteed ultimate success.

Once research has progressed beyond 25% there is a chance every turn of a breakthrough, with an automatic success once 100% has been reached.

This new system will ensure that there is a minimum and maximum length of time before a research advance is achieved, while also ensuring that the date of achievement isn’t entirely predictable. One result of this is that there will no longer be any immediate breakthroughs in the turn you start researching a category.

The new research system aims to be both less random and more realistic than before while also enhancing the overall gaming experience.

At the same time as introducing these new features and releasing 1939 Storm over Europe, we have significantly improved all three main WWI campaigns.

Improvements from v1.01 are included in this patch as well, such as:

  • Unit Swapping, adjacent units can now have their positions easily swapped with a new in game swapping mechanism.
  • Movement path is now also highlighted under friendly units to show the full reach of a moveable unit.
  • Air units can now move at 50% of available action points when located on a snow, rain and sandstorm tile.

National Morale is now increased anytime an enemy naval unit is sunk at the value of the enemy naval unit in MPPs
