Newbie Looking For Help
Hello All!

I bought this game and in all honesty i suck pretty bad. I was hoping i might be able to find someone to show me the ropes and how to play the game well.

Anyone up for that?

Thanks!

What faction do you play?

Also whats your ingame name?
You can add "Sithis" ingame, join TS3, have a few matches with us and have a look at the replays.
Its important to save replays to learn look at your and your enemies mistakes and try to avoid them.

I'd advice playing the solo campaign as well. Try 3-4 times on your own (be patient!) if u really can't do it then go on youtube and look for solutions. That will a) teach you how to use all units & get a feel for them. b) unlock the most useful of the lot. You can also save during a solo battle, so it allows you to use different tactics & find the best solution to a given problem.

But be adviced Solo tactics are not transferable to MP

^^Yes that, you need to play multiplayer to find out what people's tactics are. Every game you play you need to take mental notes at what difficulties you have encountered (e.g. Enemy bunking in forests) and upgrade your deck to allow you to counter the situation more effectively.

A common tactic I have noticed from NATO players is flakpanzer rush, they have anti air power and very high stunt rate on the ground, however it's pretty easy to counter when you have medium tanks because the flakpanzer simply gets slaughtered for free.

Also the infantry in this game is no joke like C&C, you can take out heavy tanks easily if you pit your infantry against tanks in dense forest.

i kno its different, that's beside the point; you won't learn to counter people's strategy vs a AI, of course. However, its still the same game...
Solo is kind of a tutorial for all 'real game' situations if you want; you get to learn the basics about all the things you end up doing in multi anyway.
I'm simply talking about learning the ropes a bit & then adapting it to multi as you play, like many of us do.

Yep, it's not a good learning ground for tactics, but it's invaluable for learning how units move, how to work supply lines, etc.

Feel free to add me in game, and ping me if you'd like. I'm more than happy to run through an intro game to show you the ropes. :)

Sithis Jan 24, 2013 @ 2:04pm 
you need to make sure you have the right version of wargame and all DLCs

restart steam and verify your game cache
jjjjohnnyh Jan 24, 2013 @ 2:08pm

Sithis Jan 24, 2013 @ 3:02pm

jjjjohnnyh Jan 24, 2013 @ 3:19pm
