Also, although i didn't know it first, the campaign is [no auto refit] - with my tendency to slaughter core inf and ftr, i might need a little extra cash Image

1) Seoul ~~ held all VHs

Core make-up
- no starting core :eek
- bought
M4 tank "Easy Eight"
M40 SPaty
M7 Spaty

Proto
Airborne 1951


I restarted once. Initial plan was to retreat as many units as possible, but this only meant a sneaking death with enemy units advancing while killing auxes :doh
Second try i stared at the battlefield and clicked units, until i "discovered" something i had seen dozens (if not hundreds) of times.

West: planted aty and MG in the mountains with inf forming a defense perimeter. Ftr covered MG+aty.
And a premiere, first time in history of my OG carreer i used a non-air/naval/aty unit to BLOW a hex, with the aux engineers blowing Pammunjeong (7,20). The eng then continued Scorched Earth at P'aju and Kunch'on before joining the core.
The aty survived the battle - starting in turn 3 i send it on the journey to Seoul, halfway down the road it turned and joined the core.

East: planted inf on Rough terrain for Entrenchment bonus, aty was left where it started.
Eng blew the Road (22,22) and P'och'on, then retreated to Seoul.
Police in the far east took the southern road to Seoul.
The aty (barely) survived the battle, so i pulled it back to Seoul in turn 3.

South: the AD (un)fortunately has Entrenchment. I would have liked to plant it somewhere in Seoul, but a 12 is very convincing to let it stay on the AF.
I pulled aux inf to the northern city borders (the 3 flags on the Kimpo-Vijongbu line). Since the west remained silent, i pulled the western and middle infs closer to what i expected would become the eastern frontline.

In turn 5 i spent some 30-40 minutes :o to find out what units i want to buy. I finally picked
- M40 Long Tom (no Support Fire, but Lasting Suppression, lots of Ammo and Range, and solid Power)
- an affordable tank with enough Speed/Range/Power to attack the nasty T-34 "now"
- a temporary M7 Priest (a SPaty with Support Fire to round up the core - couldn't afford anything better)
With these units, non-motorized auxes as initial cannon fodder and some left-over motorized auxes, i started the counteroffensive.
Thanks to the surviving aux police (and my reckless "send it into the FoW" ), all map-pp was collected :salute

After math:
- using inf to BLOW was an interesting experience :cool
- BLOWN hexes slow down the enemy advance if in the right spot
- after losing the western VHs early i was expecting some danger from there, but the AI ignored the western BLOWN flags (thus it also received less prestige) and never send units across the river

2) Kum River ~~ held all VHs

Sold
M7 SPaty
(thought for a while but decided to keep the cheap tank: 11 kills and a bar is a respectable result)

Bought
M41 SPaty (Support Fire, lots of Ammo and Speed, solid Range and Power)
M26 Pershing (1 less Initiative than the Patton, but more fuel and is cheaper, other stats are the same - Fuel was the deciding factor, i find tanks with less than 33-35 Fuel tricky to use :stress )

Prestige taken into scenario
118


I send the aux rcn to Puyo (15,12) to monitor enemy advance in the west - which never occured :phew
The M26 crossed the river in the far east, the M4 hurried to get to the units in the center. Otherwise i formed a defense line with the intention to quickly start the counteroffensive.

3) Pusan ~~ BV-7

Refit
all green

Bought
F2H Banshee (best ftr according Air stats - i deem it necessary with the Mig-15-incident in last scenario)

Prestige taken into scenario
343


I was sitting at HQ for a while trying to find out what units to buy. I finally realized that the scenario could be won quickly, if a single VH was captured (without losing own VHs in the process). With that in mind i went for a minimalistic HQ purchases and saved a lot of prestige for later.

I shuffled some auxes around (i.e. moving inf units into Terrain with Entrench bonus, pulling armour to the front) for potentially better defense.
Then i rushed the core to the southwest, with the aux "25th Div" starting the attack immediately (losing an aux aty in the process :o ).
BV in turn 4 :salute

I was lacking 1 DH for the HQ. The ftr needed to wait until an airfield was captured.
This scen is pretty straight forward - and smooth sailing :)

Could have been BV in turn 5, but that would have meant leaving lots of pp on the map, so i continued playing 2 more turns.

5) Pyongyang ~~ BV-2

Refit
all green

Sold
new Default XP is 100, so i sold all units (except the leadered ftr which dropped below 100 after refit) with less than 100 XP :devil
finally, i also sold the aty proto: it is not exactly "bad", however in comparison with other toys it is too short-ranged (when combining Speed and Range)

Bought
2x M40 SPaty
M41 SPaty
2x eng '48 with M5 halftrack and Fast Speed
Curtiss rcn aircraft with Recon

Prestige taken into scenario
11

Leaders
M4A3E8/76 Easy Eight , Superior Maneuver


I send 2x core aty and a core tank to support the northern auxes. Rest of core went on the route Kaesong-Umpa to attack Pyongyang from the south. I left the aux 24th ID (2x inf, tank and aty) at Kaesong.
Going from "Mig 15 horror" to "no enemy airforce (at the enemy capital)" was spooky.
In turns 6 and 7 a tank and atys started running out of Fuel.
HQ reached its 5th XP bar without losses :salute

aux airforce
--> rushed to help the outnumbered South Korean auxes, i also pulled the 4-strength auxes out of the Hinterland to the front

Core airforce was mostly busy providing recon for the west and north.

The fun part of the scen was to determine when to resupply aty.
The not so fun part of the scen was Snow, Snow and more Snow up to and including turn 5 - positive however was that the AI didn't see aty at start of its turn and thus (probably) started more attacks than it would have otherwise. In turn 6 it finally became Clear - resulting in immediate air supremacy.

7) Chosin ~~ held all VHs

Refit
all green

Sold
National Guard (was just an emergency unit)
inf proto (only 8 DHs - and the default XP dropped to 0 :dunno )

Bought
3x Recon for both engineers and the non-leadered tank
2x Fast Speed for both eng

Prestige taken into scenario
32

Leaders
M41 HMC 155mm , Aggressive Maneuver (i swear i didn't cheat :lol )
Curtiss SC Seahawk , Resilience



West
- least experienced eng + M26 and an M41
With Support Fire aty and a tank, this is solid.

South
- second eng and an M41 (on the VH)
The eng rushed north, the M41 made room for the aux HQ.

East
- second M26 and 2x M40
Central battlegroup. In overconfidence i picked the 2 heavy guns (instead of 1 heavy and 1 SF-capable gun) to let them gain XP.

North
I planted the aux inf at the river. I deemed it more efficient to let it block the bridge, instead of getting surrounded on Clear terrain - potentially losing the aux aty in the process. When the core eng arrived and the heavy guns projected their power over the northern and central combat areas, the day was saved.

Weather was Overcast with 1 turn Snow and 2 turns Clear (up to and including turn 6, past that i didn't pay attention).

In turn 6, all Flags were (re)captured, so i killed the last visible unit, but scenario didn't end.
The AI reinforcements arrive too late imho, after turn 7 (actually after turn 6, since the Katyusha is no threat) it was just pushing the End Turn button.

8) Hungnam ~~ held all VHs

Refit
all green

Sold
all Attachments

Bought
M8 rcn car with Special Muni and Recon
Curtiss rcn aircraft with Recon
F-82 (r)ocket fighter-bomber (no intercept, doesn't get escorted by fighters since it is a ftr itself, but Lasting Suppression - don't :fused if you never tried them :) )

Prestige taken into scenario
8

Leaders
Engineers 1948 , Determined Defense
M26 , Determined Defense

Proto
Engineer '51



I spend over 2 hours at HQ trying to find out which units to buy. Imho, the ground part of my core is complete.
The tricky part is: there are only a handful of scenarios left to play, and several unit classes gain XP slowly (i.e. inf units suffer a lot of damage if they shall gain XP, that's tough with no auto refit, or aty units are generally slow).
I thought about AT units, in particular the M36, but those are rather defensive weapons and if the AI sees those, it will probably not attack (i want the AI to attack and get into aty fire), thus i would only use "half" of the unit.
After an hour or so i realized that summer, respectively better weather, is on the horizon, and thus aircraft are a good choice. I looked briefly at bombers, but wasn't quite satisfied, so fighters it was.
Finally i got back into playing mode: i personally need recon units to be happy, thus after some 90 minutes i had bought the first new unit (Curtiss rcn), quickly followed by number 2 (M8 rcn) :phew
With the addition of 2 rcn units - which are rather non-combatants respectively supportive in nature - i needed a fighter with lots of yoghurt, thus i ended up with a Twin Mustang rocket-"bomber".



West: rcn car, non-leadered M26, M40, M41, 2x aux 75mm gun and the aux M4 Jumbo (which served as a block to protect the core M8 and aux guns in first turn)

Northwest: M4, M40, M41, HQ and least-experienced eng

East: leadered M26 and M41, HQ, most-experienced eng and eastern auxes, i also send the battleship here

Hungnam: collected 2x 105mm aux guns (west), destroyers (have Support Fire) and nearby aux inf to populate the city, rest of western auxes joined later


Lost the aux Twin Mustang in the air war, and the aux jet barely survived.
Could have been BV in turn 4, but with [Hold VH] condition, i repositioned and waited for enemy reinforcements to arrive.

With the bought aty i could fill all land-based DHs.
I was expecting enemy counterattacks in the east, so i send 2/3 of my aty with Support Fire there.

East: M26 "Skilled Recon", 3x aty, 1x eng, rcn car and dedicated the non-leadered rcn plane to this group - also grabbed some auxes

West: 2x tanks, 3x aty, 1x eng, HQ and dedicated the leadered rcn plane (bomber Class Leader ignores Interception, making city recon easier) to this group - also grabbed auxes

Several aux leaders commited acts of honour to inspire core units into doing the same :devil sadly only 1 new leader raised.

In retrospective, i send too many auxes with the core: sweeping victory in turn 8 :salute

10) Spring Offensive ~~ BV-5

Default XP again dropped to 0 :dunno

Refit
all green

Sold
Recon of the rcn car

Bought
Bridge for the rcn car
2x Support and 1x Recon (a second Recon already was there) for rcn aircraft
M8 rcn car with Special Muni and Recon

Prestige taken into scenario

Leaders
M41 HMC 155mm , Shock Tactics



I confess that i restarted once for better deployment, after initial spotting.

"North", deployed a small task force to defend the river line:
- M47, leadered M41, 1x M40, M26 Skilled Recon - and northeastern auxes (lots of aty anyway)

"Center" was the main battlegroup (1x tank, 2x rcn, 2x eng, HQ, and 4x SPaty spread as 2x no Support Fire and 2x SF), pushing directly into the depth of the enemy Hinterland with help of the core bridging-rcn. They were again furiously supported :devil by aux leaders, but this time i generally didn't pull as many auxes along the core units as in previous scenario. Central and western auxes basically just served as a "road block" along the rivers.

Lost the rookie rcn in turn 1 to a combined aty+AFV assault - if that failed the AI still had a bomber and a rocket-bomber at hand :scared anyway, the rest of the core survived unharmed and i didn't see how to make it better (unless resorting to a less risky slower approach - but neither "less risky" nor "slow" sound like me ;D ), also i somehow was under the impression that this is the last scenario, so i continued from there.

11) Spring Offensive 2nd Stage ~~ BV-8

Sold
Bridge of the rcn car

Refit
green for aircraft and rcn car, elite for leadered eng, mix of green and elite for other eng

Bought
Recon for rcn car

Overstrength
+2 for the non-leadered M41
+3 for both leadered M41

Prestige taken into scenario
20

Leaders
Engineers 1948 , Mountain Training
Curtiss SC Seahawk , Aggressive Attack

Proto
Patton II



Default XP is 100 (why not 190 ? ) :dunno

In turn 1 a core rcn aircraft served as an unintended "bomber trap" and was then also chewed on by a WW2-era fighter - the enemy jet thought an aux aty is more tasty than killing the rcn plane :phew

In the east i pulled frontline and motorized auxes forward to protect VHs. The aux eng blew Sokcho (26,8), just in case.
In the west the core quickly (turn 1) took the nearby VH and consecutively defended it with aty fire. 2x M26 crossed the river and cleaned house.
The M47, leadered eng and 2x heavy aty rushed to the central VH, which was taken in turn 3 :salute
Aux leaders were on yoghurt again ;D inspiring 2 new core Leaders.

Recon of the rcn car

Bought
M41 SPaty

Overstrength
+2 for all 3 heavy SPaty and the new SPaty
+1 (and +2 from previous scenario) for non-leadered 3-bar SPaty
+3 from previous scenario for both leadered SPaty
--> all aty have max OS

Refit
all green. The rcn aircraft could only be brought to 9 strength

Prestige taken into scenario
9



Eastern Group
M26 Skilled Recon, eng Det.Defense, 2x SPaty, 1x heavy SPaty, (leadered) aux HQ
--> actually, this is the "central" group, as they only needed to get past the first mountains

Core aux
M26 Det.Defense
rushing east-northeast in case enemy inf would breakthrough around the coastal airfield

West
M47, core+aux HQ, rcn car, 2x SPaty and 2x heavy SPaty (and aux units)
--> some auxes blocked the central road, until the core "eastern" group arrived

With airforce, ships and 3 (2 aux + 1 core) 5-bar HQs, this was rather a clean up than a battle :sherman :sherman :sherman

congratulations!

though i expected you playing at lower prestige level, as you really are a veteran player

(very big off, should be posted somewhere else, i guess:)

honestly, time to time i imagine the beginners having similar troubles like i had in late 1990s when i played the original pg2 campaigns, and this cc76 seemed to be a very "beginner friendly" campaign where mistakes are allowed in order to win. otoh, when i playtested this campaign at 25%, it wasn't as easy at all, so imo anybody who played at least a dozen of pg2/og campaign should play this campaign with 20-40% prestige level, if they want some challenge :2cents

Thanks Csaba :)

Yes, i should have played @60 or maybe even @40. The thing is (and you are right that this could be turned into a public discussion, or maybe added here ), the lower the pp-setting, the longer it takes me to play a turn: doublecheck whether i should move unit X or attack unit Y, how far and where does unit Z get in N turns relative to goals and known dangers, where are good defensive posititions, etc.
I.e. @50 i want a "perfect" play, a V/TV is only acceptable if a scenario was really too hard for that pp-setting.

But the higher the pp-setting, the more easily i forgive myself doing mistakes and also have less problems accepting lost core units and/or a non-BV result.

Over the past couple of years i came to the realization, that it i find it more fun to just "play" instead of "think" through a scenario, thus i will probably more and more play at higher pp-settings :o on the other hand, this might in turn more... lets say "correctly" ? Otoh, this might in turn more correctly display my actual playing skill, if in a medium difficulty campaign @100 i lose some core units and don't get an all BV streak :)

Hi Chris, thanks for finishing the campaign. You now know the campaign and maybe try again with a lower prestige level?

Uff, good question.

I am currently/still working on FTL, planning to finally release it within the next weeks. I wanted to add another campaign conversion with the release.
With that in mind, i should be playing that campaign before (re)playing i.e. CC76.
OTOH, if replaying now it would mean i play with others :notsure
