Beginning Turn Question


Recommended Posts

I would like to requst the following be added:

When a unit is given orders to move on the FIRST turn of the battle, there should be no command delay for the unit.

Yes? No? Time to don asbestos suit...

IMO this would negate the troop experience level for one turn (i.e. turn 1). but what would be the point exactly?

Not a flame just a question because I don't understand?

Why? no command delay off the first turn?

What behaviour in a real life combat situation are you trying to model with your suggestion?

again not a flame just a question

I can understand where you're coming from, CEO, but is it really worth it? A few seconds at the beginning of the battle and that's it. Charles would basically have to reprogram units to behave differently in that one specific circumstance.

Just assume that your guys haven't been sitting there for half an hour - they've just moved up from the rear, and they're just being issued with orders, so the command delay is no big deal.

Well, it is a big deal when my 4 armored cars get smoked in the first few seconds on the first turn because they are not in the process of hauling ass. Oh well, I guess I can just consider it an ambush or something. Or I'll just have to try and find a spot where no one can see me (not always an option).

I don't think so because the start of a battle is, in game sense, just a place for us to start the game. In the real world the fight/battle/manuver has been going along up untill that point. Even in the best timed of operations, everyone is not going to start at the exact same time. There is going to be some early starters and some late starters.

I would suggest a better starting position. tongue.gif

Seriously, in real life you would have had to pull into the game's start position. Would you pull into a fully exposed position like that? Would the enemy wait for you to start, like the game does, before firing?

IMO, it is not unrealstic to have a first turn command delay but it is unrealistic to start in an overly exposed position because you don't have to deal with battle set, i.e. moving into the start positons, as you would in real life.

"War does not determine who is right - only who is left."

-Bertrand Russell

"For Americans war is almost all of the time a nuisance, and military skill is a luxury like Mah-Jongg. But when the issue is brought home to them, war becomes as important, for the necessary period, as business or sport. And it is hard to decide which is likely to be the more ominous for the Axis--an American decision that this is sport, or that it is business." -D. W. Brogan, The American Character
