Do you guys split your units often? Perhaps to have many people occupying buildings at the same time for area control? Only time I've actually used it wasn't a real combat situation, but during the training exercise. It does make people useful for scouts at least. Speaking of which, can buildings be used as scouting locations once you shorten the targeting cone? I'm trying to learn about every tactic I can use to my advantage, this game is really tough, even on the training difficulty.
So, after getting this game yesterday, I'm having a hard time with it. I'm loving the game regardless of my failures, but I just have to ask, why do tactics fail here but succeed everywhere else? In most other games, there is the general idea of, "push first, and push hard" in order to capture your objectives. While I attack with what I believe are "overwhelming odds" (although without any intel to support this), by the time the battle ends, it was a horrific, bloody draw. In my current game, the first campaign mission, I've gained control of multiple areas, but barely nobody is alive to continue the attack, with most of the units written down as casualties (also, learning how to heal people would be great). So, making my attacks at least somewhat more efficient than a Skaven bumrush would be very useful information. My next question would be about artillery. I find myself completely dry halfway through the battle, which I wouldn't mind if I knew that it was being used effectively. My first targets at the beginning of the match are the objectives, in this case I bombard the school, or other clumps of buildings with hope to suppress or just wipe out many squads at once. What fire modes do you guys use under what situations? In exchanges of fire with other infantry, I tend to use light fire for short periods of time, and for groups like machine guns and infantry in buildings, I would use heavy for short as well. I don't use Long much because I'm worried that the fir will continue long after we push upwards into the location. Something someone posted that got me curious was to "always leave units in reserve". Does this help? Won't your attacking forces just get overrun immediately without strength in numbers? My last qustion is, how can you preserve the health of your units, and how can I reduce the number of times they just drop what they're doing to run away? It feels like the moment a fight begins, a unit is running away, and their fear level is difficult to manage.
