faceoff at Rostov
They need to do some overhauling on some of these ToW maps, I was able to beat all the Russian missions on General, but this one is total BS, starts out fair, both sides have equal resources, you take a point, Boom! Now you are outnumbered 10 to 1, there is no strategy for this, I leveled up a mortar halftrack 3 levels in 2 minutes flat, 50+ kills, machine gun teams pinning, stug and command tank in front, 2 grenadiers, im out of money, and more troops keep coming, same story 3 times. I gave up after I killed 10 squads only to find 10 more after me. I can see like 120% resource handicap to the comp, maybe 10% off troop costs, make it tough, but this was total bull, I took a screenshot of what they sent to just the 1 point I was trying to hold, this wasnt everything, but there are 18 various squads there, 2 minutes before that? 1 squad of engineers, then half the russian army shows up. I could see if this was just a quick push, but this was constant after the first set showed up. Im decent at using cover, range, flanking etc, but sheer numbers make this impossible. playing vs comp on standard games or victory point, hards are pretty easy, experts are frustrating, ToW? I wont touch it again until this is fixed.

just rush comp base at start and destroy all buildings with stug = win :)

ugh this again... do it on conscript then, stop whinning here, the mission is fun and challenging, probably the best ToW mission together with Blitzkrieg and Broody Tank War

Bart, it was fun? You tell me how to beat 18 squads, 8 minutes in, against my 5. I have the screen shot to prove it, I was outnumbered 5 to 1. Give me a legitimate strategy, not thus, UGH, a kid doesnt know what to do. I had them pinned, I a mortar halftrack taking them out, but the resource cap made it impossible by sheer numbers. I post an issue, not an OP ♥♥♥♥♥ fest, or a cheating thread, I really wanna know, wtf people are doing to beat this.
Btw drunk, constructive post back to me, and your english is ♥♥♥♥, so i hope its not your first language.

ye this not my main lang
So one of the solutions in the post #2
ToW got only 1 mission where u needs to think its Shildkroteberg on general
just turn on brains

Most ToW missions need to be harder, in my opinion. Only Shildkroteberg forced me into conscript diff, the rest is easy on general, after a max of 3 tries. I'm not counting the AI battles here, they are hard when alone, easy when with an AI army.

That is the only other mission that is giving me trouble, having that many waves at you, almost have to let them work your base over just to get some manpower points, the russian ones were super easy, german ones are giving me more trouble. which is weird, when I play vs AI (hard or expert) on normal maps i dont have much trouble, its these scenarios that are kicking my ♥♥♥

USSR missions were kinda easy and i agree should maybe be tuned a little on general to make them a little more active.
Face off is the hardest TOW mission if anyone tells you its easy they did not win on general by points they did the stug base rush to win. I am not saying no one has beat it on general without rushing the base but if they did they wouldn't say it easy.
I don;t think you can beat it with the AI on general find a co op and come in their base from the north hug the border of the map there are no mines on the border line.

I remember this fun mission, didnt rush enemy base with stug, nice challenge.
Dentros Jul 12, 2013 @ 9:14pm 
yeah, I dunno what the deal is, ive never seen the comp push this hard at one point, and if I take both? im done for sure. http://cloud-3.steampowered.com/ugc/882987522127307129/9AB59282D6B78D3B01D3FEF71D3CAAC51FC6C723/ im not kidding, look at the time, under 10 minutes, look at my resources, now count the units that are just on screen. This was after I lost 4 squads. Im not saying it wasnt doable, I didnt have this much trouble on any other map. I've never seen the comp push this many units this fast
