What are we playing?

Recommended Posts

  Battle for Paris continues. While our best Shpetsnaz battalion is busy with obliteration of Euroweaklings, Hotdog eaters also were busy with slowly advancing on southern part of Europe. But i am still commited to a siege of Paris, the capital of pseudo-democrats.

   Enemy commander changed, now it is Claude Moreau. Never fought him before, according to the briefing he is more into a defensive tactics. His battalion is ranked same as my, so it should be rather hard fight. This time Rodina given us a task to annihilate Cheese eaters and don't bother with hacking their elections.

 

mbdASQM.png

   Place of our meeting is the same as last time. My plan is different, though - concentrate forces in the middle (including infantry, as there is plenty of cover there) and hold on until my opponent will run out of forces and no longer have numerical advantage of numerical parity. After that - slowly advance to left and right flanks, using artillery to soften or totaly destroy Euroforces leftovers. Enemy commander claimed to be not bad at defence, let's make him to attack me instead of testing his skills on his ground. We will ee how it goes.

 

qpn0J7c.png

   First wave of deployed forces consist of 2 squads of combat engineers to upgrade uplinks and get ability to unleash electronic warfare attack on Euroweaklings. Then they will put mines and prepare ambushes in the middle, cover artillery and act as second line of defences. 2 SPG platoons will be main long range mighty fist of Motherland. Tanks will provide conter-attack block and IFV smashing capability.

 

SwwYjlB.png

   Traditionally, suicide copters arrived to get filled with AA missiles. This time - 8 Eurocopters in the same time.

 

QEKwfcp.jpg

 

pw8ozDU.jpg

   This group is cought in a crossfire of 2 SPAAGs, Kamovs and tanks. They will disappear from existance in few short moments.

 

gaNH9C8.jpg

   Euroforces concentrated on other side of the river, as last time. Artillery will deal with them. Helicopters are there to spot targets.

 

FkfHMPK.jpg

   IFVs are providing AA protection for command vehicle, that for some reason arrived in the middle.

 

l80b2qu.jpg

   Tanks are tasked with clearing Cheese-eaters that cover command vehicle, while artillery is busy with creative use of explosive for city roads rearrangement.

 

XRytjlf.jpg

   There is a factory somewhere in Paris that poops those things every 30 seconds. At least we have a factory that makes 30 mm AC shells much faster! Command vehicle looks like changed it's mind and now tries to escape from a warm Russian Shpetsnaz welcome from 2 tank platoons and 2 SPG batteries. 

 

sy7O2NQ.jpg

   Suicide rotorbladewagons are nearly done. My plan is working as Claude is trying to attack, and he is not good at it. 

 

18ghy4D.jpg

   Only 1 salvo from artillery is separating Claude's command truck from becoming part of Paris architecture.

 

JyjCEcw.jpg

   Artillery is also mixing Euroregulars with dirt. W hile i was busy in other place, deflecting attack on our right flank, tank platoon under number 8 was cought in crossfire from helicopters and enemy tanks and suffered loses, but did not lost combat capabilities. Position D was lost, but i don't really care as it is not crucial.

 

Fk3Om7y.jpg

   Artillery continues to rule battlefields with their steel grip, leaving only smoldering evidence of their power over ground self-propelled targets.

 

QNC4Lxg.jpg

   Claude tries to attack from our left flank this time, but he drives his wheeled deathtraps right into my big group of Shpetsnaz soldiers and AFVs. Our defencive formation works - tanks on the front, near the river, behind them - SPAAGs, behind SPAAGs - area for artillery to maneuver. Infantry is covering this area for SPGs from flanks (triangles visible near F and B on map).

  

oAZEGV9.jpg

   How many times you need to lose gunships to understand that they don't work against us? They were quickly destroyed.

 

afxELMk.jpg

   No enemies visible. Time to recon and try to re-take D.

 

yBL4YZL.png

   Euro cannon meat maneuvers on their side of river. Nothing too important for now.

 

TtGoQbr.jpg

   Yet another group of Eurocopters is trying to see how long it takes fo our AA system to land them. Number 1 assigned as 1st spotted foe from active enemy units.

 

DOKBQSt.jpg

   Euroinfantry tried to cross this bridge, using their stealth bullshit "we are not spotted" tactics. Groundfire doesn't care, mr. Claude!

 

Z0Pk0gT.jpg

   This squad of regular army infantry decided to stay in cover on their side of the bridge, but not for long as Shpetsnaz artillery have objections to this idea, which they will loudly announce.

 

uAb1YMU.png

   One of hundreds of gunship group that we destroyed. This pile of incompetence is in a hurry to add themselves to our long list of shot down air threats.

 

ZP4bhVO.jpg

   Claude attack timing is just enough for SPAAGs to reload their missiles, HAHAHA! You are an idiot, Claude!

 

fsC7p8O.jpg

   After skies were cleared, no mo enemies to defeat was in LOS of my forces. Infantry was pushed futher to flanks, but i keep AFVs close, as some of them received damage (don't want them to be an easy pray for gunships). Kamovs were sended for recon mission.

   Frenchies scrambled their recources and pooped out yet more of those piles of rotorblades. Kamovs are luring them to SPAAGs.

 

K9Dqpor.jpg

   EW in action - those choppers are Hacked by Russianstm and for a short time are easy pray for anybody with a gun. Kamovs are turning back to participate in bullying of those Euroweaklings.

 

hgwdCkX.jpg

   Regular infantry spotted by combat engineers on right flank, artillery will deal with them a little bit later, after i will enjoy another piles of trash being dealt with.

 

O035biN.jpg

 

8Oy9XC6.jpg

   Combat engineers spotted a group of Euro light infantry, shaking in fear between few trees. They were gunned down while running away from engineers and their flamethrowers. Red effect is from Claude being desperate and pressing WMD red button few hundred times.

 

RNCOuzV.jpg

   I didn't manage to guess a timing of his Space laser strike, but we have no KIAs at least. At this point of battle it was obvious that enemy can't deploy any series amount of forces, so i probably should had all forces to be spread out already. Although, even if Eurolosers had anybody on the ground, i could easily call for reinforcements, as it was avaliable in numbers.  

 

JXWaWvv.jpg

   BUHAHAHA! They lost so quickly after using laser that i didn't had time to drop my big ass missile on them! Probably there were nobody to kill with it anyway!

 

Qf6C8kF.jpg

   Euroweaklings lost so fast after laser strike that laser attack is even visible on battle report map, hahaha. Another quote from Napoleon. Yes, i stuck with my idea of creating big pile of AFVs in the middle, worked great until it was hit by Space Laser.

 

OQQeVXW.png

   Only 1 battle left to take Paris and end Eurolosers. Cowboys are still advancing along southern coast. Our breaktrhough in northen part of Europe was very usefull for us, as this war is taking too much time before getting results.

   Today battle were useless in my EndWar singleplayer. Americans were advancing in southern regions of Europe, and i decided to stop their push. First attempt was almost a victory that enemy snatched from us in last minte (literally), and second victory was also useless as gains in our battle for Paris were partially rolled back (3 victories are needed to capture enemy nation capital, i done 2/3, after battle it went to 1/3). I don't want to play on same map 4 times, especially when Americans will just take back their lost territories anyway. Decided to continue Paris operation via save files, after mission in the south was done 2 times, but that will be not today.

   First time fighting Mike Kim. Fluid tactics and artillery. Don't have good plan on this map, will capture B, F, A and then either Y or L. Foxtrot is likely to be a chokepoint and concentration of enemy attacks.

   Usual suspects are here, but helicopters will be a must, as they will work against Cowboys artillery.

   3rd battle for Paris. We were fighting a long and hard war to get here. Euroweaklings are just 1 step away from becoming Eurolosers. 1 step away from becoming defeated and deleted from this war. Just 1 batttle to end their ability to fight, make them totally irrelevant and capable of only to hold on few regions left under EU control in British islands. This battle will be hardest fight so far, as Euroweaklings are going to throw everything they have against our Glorious Shpetsnaz 20th Armored Battalion. We can't lose this battle. We must win it and slaughter remains of EU Army, crush their manpower and deliver a war-changing victory for our Rodina!

 

Y2jwaXt.png

   Victory in Siege of Paris will allow Russia to threaten US advances in France and Central Europe. We will be able to flank them from north and push Cowboys back from Ramsteinovskaya and other regions near it into Italy. The only foothold Americans will have if we will manage to execute our plan will be Spain, with the only way to clear it being blunt frontal attack from France. But those are future plans, let's focuse on last operation against EU forces in Paris.

 

Spoiler

Id3VpgO.png

   I see they even brought Alexis Matz to command a defence of their capital. Good choice, but they should have tried it much earlier! Unlike all previous battles, this one does not require us to hack 50% +1 server hubs. We will be able to win if: A) Uplink A is captured by Shpetsnaz or B) Nobody is left alive to defend Paris. My plan was shaped by lack of information on level of defence Euroweaklings deployed in this operation.

   At first, a tank rush with few APCs/SPAAGs with combat engineers was considered to cut down time for enemy to respond, but i was worried about Matz's high number of SPGs that he likes to use in some of battles i had against him. Even if i will be able to get to point A, he could wipe out infantry that tries to secure it, which will put me in bad situation as i will need to call and then sneak more infantry from my initial LZ through majoirty of enemy territory and then try again to hack point A. Not a best plan.

 

bymz437.png

   My final plan was to advance slow but with a such pressure and firepower that Shpetsnaz onslaught will be unstoppable for our desperate opponent. There is no defensive tactics or holding chokepoints in this battle - we need to assault their side of the river and push deep. This is why battalion is deploying high number of infantry for urban combat on European-controlled side of the river, but in order to get there they will need serious firepower support. This means SPGs and tanks. MBTs will be called to this operation some time after initial phase of capturing F and D. European artillery units must be countered with helicopters, at any cost, as Matz is using them way to efficient to leave them exist for too long. Command vehicle will be useable to shield artillery from gunships, launch armed UAV to recon, harass our foe, and provide some firesupport for infantry.

 

9CXqeZA.jpg

   Operation begins. 10 minutes before European regular army will flood this city. Also, European Enforces/Alexis will get way more troops as well. But i am not going to chase this time limit and risk losing battle or units.

 

9z93YUx.png

   As a briefing image showed - central bridge was repaired and now i can use it. Infantry will push through it and establish forward positions. From it there are just a few houses that separates us from our target. Not sure what to do with Zulu Zhara and Lima Leto. Fighting will be concentrated probably near Whiskey Whishnoe so tanks parked on quay/road near the river will be a not bad idea. Zhara will be closer to them and faster to assault.

 

aftuTCa.jpg

   Playing bait for Eurocopters. Alexis doesn't waste his helicopters as easily as other EU commanders. He didn't took my bait, need to find another way to deal with Eurocopters.

 

WCoZt7D.jpg

   Light infantry is slowly advancing to Fedya. Capturing it will allow to us to upgrade our hacking capabilities and we will be able to disable any vehicle for short period of time with special EMP superior Russian hacking of enemy AFVs WiFi. Taking into account that we don't have air support, or regular army units avaliable to help us in this battle, this special AOE soft-type of attack will be very usefull.

 

2DJdEBg.jpg

   Europeans managed to establish significant defence in key locations on their side of the city. Each building is protected by eco-friendly killer bots and automatic turrets. "Rush A" tactics would have had problems, at least for infantry. 

 

CFrzkqf.png

   Artillery is clearing hostile side of the bridge, infantry will assault here later.

 

WNbLAIN.jpg

   Almost done. I am sure that more of those things are there, waiting for us to make a mistake.

 

K32o6c6.jpg

   Alexis is still not committed to a direct flight. Helicopters spotted combat engineers and flying away now. He is probably scouting. I know you, Alexis, you are preparing for serious artillery bombardment of Shpetsnaz forces! Russian forces are not advancing too fast, as if they are not supported by other units, Alexis will try to hunt them down. Tanks were called in, they will arrive about in the same time as we will approach central bridge.

 

djwwMEq.jpg

  Ha! I knew that, Matz. At any cost your artillery will be wiped out!

 

8l27FZh.png

   Helicopters are going to attack, but we need to find a good moment for this. Meanwhile infantry took Fedya, and on the way to Dima. Tanks are getting closer to their positions, to clear a way for infantry.

 

WQGAO26.jpg

   And it started. Alexis started to fire on my artillery, so Kamovs were rushed to attack. EMP Superior Russian hacking disabled SPGs and left them open for Kamovs and counter-artillery barrage. We have not much time left, so it is a good moment to destroy what Europeans have on the ground, especially their Special forces units under Alexis command.

 

2c7BDGy.jpg

   Destroy them at any cost! Our victory lies on this moment!

 

Z57tqOl.jpg

   WIPE THEM OUT AT ANY COST!

 

XCp6GE0.jpg

   Kamovs did their job, we pulled European's fangs. Helicopters are defeated, but they will see another battle after new vehicles will be delivered to our battalion. Alexis is trying to retaliate, but it is too late. Infantry and AA HMGs on tanks are good AA coverage for SPGs.

 

eCs66Qi.jpg

   We have not much time left before shitshow of Euroweaklings hordes. Tanks are going to shell other side of the river and we will have hust a few moments to sneak infantry in forward positions, to act as a spotters for artillery and deal damage to those who get too close to them.

 

P8wRmJJ.jpg

   Few hostiles left are in the area of planned breach, tanks are crushing them with their main calibers.

 

m6eZjJa.jpg

   

tSPJ6V2.jpg

   Matz tries to flank us with his tanks, SPGs are going to counter this attempt. If they will maange to get close, tanks and combat engineers will finish them easily.

 

VM5MMBG.jpg

   Last infantry squad to kill before our assault.

 

DExK3DY.jpg

   We have less than a minute to prepare for European hordes. Hordes of EU SFs under Alexis command and vast fields of cannon meat of regular EU army.

 

wsrQ8RI.jpg

   Their attack begun with SPAAAACE LAZER attack, Alexis choice was logical - SPGs. SPAAG was disabled as well, was too close. Hordes of Eurocopters are visible, infantry is in place. Time for close range support with giant strategical missiles! Main battle is just starting, Euroweaklings! I WILL BREAK YOU!

 

DXu6WIQ.jpg

   HAHAHAHAHA! We hit 4 units at least by this well-timed mushroom cloud!

 

dTMeWO0.jpg

   Combat engineers arriving to provide AT and AA support for light infantry. Disabled vehicles and their crews are being evacuated. First wave was defeated easily, but now we will have much harder time. Another group of helicopters are ready to counter SPGs, if Alexis is going to deploy them.

 

OeMXQ2T.jpg

   Yes, at least 4 units were hit by our glorious missile. Second wave will arrive shortly.

 

S6nUjE0.jpg

   At the same time tanks are pushing to Zhara point to flank Europeans, but their regular army reinforcements are already near the bridge. We need to push here as well, as infantry in the middle area may not be able to hold on without artillery support.

 

VsHPDGy.jpg

   Hordes of Europeans are here! NO STEP BACK! FIGHT GLORIOUSLY FOR MOTHERLAND, SHPETSNAZ SOLDIERS! DEFEAT DEGENERATE EUROPEAN LIARS! NO ARTILLERY SUPPORT MEANS MORE EUROPEANS  FOR YOU TO KILL!

 

Mg7FDLo.jpg

   Kamovs are assisting to infantry. Engineers probably would be able to deal with those tanks, but Alexis is using them as a meat shield for his SPGs, that just arrived to this battlefield. Also, our battalion is also bringing in more of SPGs.

 

DltuhgY.jpg

   Artillery MUST BE STOPPED! Light infantry is retreating/evacuating, i don't want KIA during this battle, especially experienced infantry units. 

 

SlsGTxr.jpg

   ...AT ANY COST!

   Artillery is in their positions and starting their HE delivery service. This place is a burial ground. It seems that Shpetsnaz managed to secure breachgap and it is a time to expand it and assault futher.

 

rSfR5kt.png

   Tanks are going to reinforce combat engineer squad, that suffered casualties. SPGs and Kamovs are providing support for them. Engineers are hacking Whishnoe. Alexis, this battle is lost for you!

 

9X0yhez.jpg

   In order to distract Alexis from Whishnoe, second assault task force is pusing server hub Zhara. Tanks are being supported by light infantry and combat engineers, so it should be able to survive any counter attacks from any kind of units, with exception of artillery.

 

B9tahgH.jpg

   Euroweaklings engineers are cought in the open by tanks in the central area. They are not goign to live for long, obviously. Yes, Europeans are just few minutes away from becoming Eurolosers, they can't orginize serious counter attack. In fact, i suspect that Shpetsnaz forces near Whishnoe are located just meters away from European SF LZ. 

 

tWF2U0n.jpg

   Gunships that are trying to suicide themselves into our AA defence? Alexis is desperate. Also, SPAAGs and Command vehicle are going to reinforce central part of this battlefield.

 

CLXuXvW.jpg

 

IcHrkVl.jpg

   My plan to distract Alexis worked - second group of choppers are on the way to Zhara. 

 

GYHKSzp.png

   ...and they are not easy target to gun down for your choppers, Matz!

 

sw17gs0.jpg

   After infantry AA rockets damaged them, Eurocopters are trying to retreat. But SPAAGs are not giving them a chance to survive.

 

kgctSzB.jpg

   European helicopter dropped infantry right in the middle of Shpetsnaz troops. Really bad idea...

 

q1Akftc.jpg

   Another victim of desperate attempts to turn this battle into something other than a total Shpetsnaz victory.

 

X6EZeOa.jpg

   Command vehicle was usefull because of armed UAV it have, giving me good recon and some damage output on any part of this slaughterfield.

   One of last units that Euroweaklings have. I smell Glorious victory!

   Combat engineers killed last of Euroweaklings unit. This is not only total victory in Siege of Paris, but my personal victory over Alexis Matz, best Eurolosers commander!

   Artillery tries to get more badges before end of this mission by picking easy pray to shell into the dirt.

 

PvPQXkf.jpg

 

6e0GUnS.png

   YES! Euroweaklings are now Eurolosers! EU is defeated!

 

MpwNytV.jpg

   Regular EU army units near position A. Didn't had to assault it, as it turns out murdering all EU SFs is more than enough. Those formations would have been easy to clear for artillery.

 

CLa7rXL.jpg

   Near point Zhara, tanks with infantry support were holding pretty well against few EU SFs that tried to counter their attack. Also, lots of regular army AFVs were defeated on the way to Zhara.

 

GdDqAnw.jpg

   This amount of Eurohordes was on the way to Zhara, Shpetsnaz tanks smashed through them, littering battlefield with burned husks of slaughtered Eurolosers.

   Central area is total graveyard of Eurolosers.

   "B"? I bet this is because of slow Victory instead of quick defeat, and because of 5 units that were defeated during this battle. Although no KIA. 20 minutes long slaughter of Eurolosers hordes... that was exhausting battle, actually.

 

94biKVg.png

   This is one of main reason to hold on your units and try to avoid any serious casualties, use retreat or evacuate when units suffered loses - they are getting experience and abilities.

 

NbHlyq4.png

   Yes, this will be usefull.

 

tkvio1q.png

   Another Legendary platoon was lost in one of battles, sadly.

 

fTpBxgI.png

   So far in 28 battles 398 enemy units were defeated, we suffered 5 KIA. This mean almost 80 enemies per 1 killed of our battalion. SHPETSNAZ IS STRONG!

 

lsXXj5I.png

   Situation so far after Eurolosers suffered total defeat in their capital. Paris opens a way to push into southern France. Probably i need to take Ramsteinovskaya back but US forces are trying to attack Sevastopol, again.

   Majority of US controlled regions is in Southern Europe. Is this strange that in this game European force was defeated by fighting on 2 frontlines against Russia and US?

   I like how American command vehicle have baby UGVs as protection, while Russian counterpart have conscripts. Taking into account that those things are balanced against each other and have about same combat effectvness, either our conscripts are as good as armored drone with gatling gun, or that UGV is as terrible as some conscripts.

   After our Glorious victory in Paris and total defeat of Eurolosers, it is time to clash with Americans. They were advancing in southern parts of Europe, and reached Sevastopol. Our Shpetsnaz battalion was tasked with defence of Navy base, again. 

   This operation was done 2 times because during first battle one of my helicopter unit was shot down over water, which is automatically counted in this game as KIA, and i didn't liked it. Both times we won, but 2nd attempt was needed so i don't have to deal with rookie gunship crews that don't know what "rocket pods" are for.

   Map is familiar, tactics is the same - secure chokepoints and funnel enemies into crossfire on the bridge in the central part of this map. Last time we needed to secure buildings and prevent their destruction IIRC, but this time our job is to establish bitcoin mining superiority and capture more server hubs than Cowboys. Opponent is also familiar, so not many surprises are expected.

   Decided to test new early game deployment composition. Idea is to get as many servers/uplinks as possible in early game and prepare for attack by placing minefields. Generally this mission will be more infantry-heavy. We will see how this works.

   Helicopters will be used for recon, hit and run attacks and artillery counter.

   Regulars of the US Army are spotted, they are most likely to be supported by JSF. American invaders will be murdered without mercy!

   Artillery is using regulars as spotters. Not bad, but i will not allow this group of SPG to sit on their asses.

   Americans started their barrage, Kamovs are already going to shut them down with a lot of explosives.

   Hey, Americans decided to use southern path. This is new, we need to counter their landgrab of our Matherland!

   Job is done, Kamovs are retreating under cover of combat engineers and their AA weapons.

   Early server hacking allows to call airsupport early in operations. We are using it to send those gunships to the bottom of this seaport.

   Kamovs spotting big targets for artillery. We are clearing southern route as much as possible, will send a recon group of Shpetsnaz soldiers to deal with what is left.

 

DIo9UkI.png

   Switchblade Svirepiy is now on the important mission to hunt down infantry that is left in this area. Americans are there for sure, they are trying to capture Yanov. Svirepiy will be alone in this battle, and only their skill can help them to complete their task.

 

mjTGHmy.jpg

   Kamovs and rest of forces are fighting with attackers in the center, so nobody here can counter American push in the southern part of Sevastopol Nave base.

   Svirepiy cautiously moving through cargo zone of seaport, surrounded by hundreds of containers. Hard terrain to get through, with plenty of places where enemy can wait to ambush Shpetsnaz soldiers.

   In the same time, a slaughter on the bridge of death continues. Americans will not advance here, but will find their place to rest for eternity!

   After defeat of Eurolosers, we have time to hit Americans. Cowboys are trying to use a moment and attack US regions, captured by Shpetsnaz in attempt to take them back. We need to expand our territory to create a buffer between attacking American forces and those regions, from which we will launch our operation against last EU-controlled territories.

   Our old opponent. Not very good, we can run some experiments in unit composition in this battle as well. Main fighting will be for position Z, but central area is rather big and enemy likes to use choppers to hunt down isolated groups.

 

gU3sq9z.png

   Thats why at least 1 SPAAGs is needed. Light infantry will be usefull to clear village near Z, while combat engineers can try to lock down enemies in resort area, as it is on the way from Imperialist LZ to server hub Z.

 

T2W1YiQ.jpg

   Camo ability should help to light infantry to sneak to their positions.

   So much of Maskirovka that soldiers become transparent for visible light!

   After securing more territory from Americans, we have time to clear remains of EU forces. Some of them are becoming cocky again and are trying to attack parts of New Russia in America. High command decided to focus on Eurolosers and finally crush them. Our Shpetsnaz battalion was chosen for this mission to wipe all Eurolosers from the map of the world once and for all! Because we need to focus forces against them, Americans will have easier times with taking their land back, so we need to advance as fast as possible to not loose much.

   Familiar battlefield. Don't remember this commander of Euroloser forces, but this will not be a hard battle. Plan is to capture L, S and F first and than take both Alpha and Delta points to make our victory especially glorious!

   No experiments this time, we need to push on 2 flanks in the same time and our usual task force composition is well suited for such battles.

   After number of Glorious victories in US, Europeans were pushed back into last few regions under EU control in UK. Russian army took Schottland, but Europeans are counterattacking in desperate attempt to stop our invasion and annexetaion of Schottland oblast'. Our legendary Shpetsanz battalion was tasked with important task to once and for all end Eurolosers. Defence operation was put together aimed to break remains of EU SF on main island.

   Alexis Matz is our opponent forces leader in this fight. Not a bad choice, but this region is not very good for his tactics, as it favors infantry and my defensive style of commanding. Our task is to deliver a humilating and total defeat of those Eurolosers forces. He may use a lot of gunships as in one of his previous battle against 20th Armored battalion of the Shptesnaz Guards Brigade. We will be ready.

 

KEdWM61.png

   Combat engineers will be good addition to our AA defence. They will also provide medium range AT firepower against forces that will manage to break through, and thanks to SPGs those forces will be damaged or nearly dead. Our tactics will be to break all attackers with our defence hard as steel and take victory from a defenceless and delicious plate full of Eurolosers humiliation.

 

7iGUxgF.png

   Big amount of forests mean cover for our infantry. It also means that we should do everything to prevent enemy infantry from getting to our side of this narrow plato. If we will fail to do that, points A and B should be defensible places for infantry to retreat to.

   Eurolosers are totally destroyed! This mean that JSF is left 1vs1 with Shpetsnaz Guards Brigade. Cowboys were benefiting from a free ticket to grab land while we were busy with Europeans and now it is time to push them out, and we will begin with re-taking Capengaghengrad.

   Jordan Taylor? He is incompetent commander and will be an easy target for us. Taking into account that our task is to destroy all attackers, it will be straight mutual murder competition.

   We are going with unusual composition of forces with vast majority of first wave being infantry. We don't need to assault anything, so purely defensive tactics is going to be a good choice to win this operation with maximum enemy humiliation.

   First customers arrive for testing of our AA products. Meanwhile we are calling SPGs to soften all targets outside of Great Wall of Motherland.

   Second group of choppers vs 2 platoons of APC/SPAAGs is going to be a short battle.

   Command vehicle, gunships and infantry are all visible from guard towers. Infantry is holding their positions rather well against so many enemies.

oB5Vrg3.jpg

   Kamovs penetrated behind enemy lines and now are dealing with hostile artillery support. Our foe doesn't know what proper AA defence is!

 

gqZrp0k.jpg

   Second group of 4 SPGs that is going to taste Kamov's rockets.

 

gW8Q4Ml.jpg

   Light infantry had to move out of tower under protection of walls to isolate and deal with one of squads of infantry hordes that were rushing to this entrance to military base. This team suffered some casualties, but still combat capable. SPAAGs on the right are also going to ambush attackers.

 

PiPpdvV.jpg

   After all American infantry was killed by Shpetsnaz operators, JSF command vehicle is trying to push this choke. Light infantry was reinforced with combat engineers to deal with AFVs. Kamovs are joining this collective command vehicle bashing.

 

QU3rS90.jpg

   Even my command vehicle participated in American Command armored box killing!

 

bN8b069.jpg

   Now JSF tanks are our target SPGs doing their hard work to flatten them.

 

O6S15dc.jpg

   And IFVs too.

 

1qpUgTd.jpg

   Mr. Jordan tried to sneak infantry squad under walls using forests. Not bad idea for sabotage attempts, but on the battlefield full of Gunships and artillery? Not so much.

 

QMZ1Ad8.jpg

   Artillery helps to make battles shorter by having ability to deliver their firepower without moving their asses anywhere.

   Squad under number 4 had no action on right flank. Enemy commander lost a chance to breakthrough here.

   "A" grade? Thanks to enemy not using WMD and my superior positioning and pre-operation planning!

 

EjjWVOR.png

   War with 2 enemies in the same time left us with not that much regions under Russian control compared to US. Cowboys used their time to advance in places where it was both easy and would not trigger much actions from Eurolosers and Mighty Rodina.

 

   Americans are using a moment and plan to re-take some of their land. 20th Armored Shpetsnaz battalion was transferred back to US soil to counter Cowboys attempts to undermine our foothold in Northen America and create conditions for a bridgehead for operation to assault Washington D.C. No MW2-style operations involving VDV!

   Familiar locations and not so familiar tactics. I am planning to use some tactical elements that were not used that much in previous battles on such maps with many open grounds.

   Tanks are fully upgraded. RCWS, thermobatic rockets, 2 AA HMGs, all sorts of Soviet-era.. ERA, Shtora jammers and so on. T-100 Chonma-Ho is ready to crush American imperialists!

 

vwPtWi1.jpg

   Tanks are advancing with regular army conscripts cover. They will be usefull later against JSF infantry and helicopters.

 

c9cf9v3.jpg

   Tanks are covered by SPAAGs from usual chopper spam. Let's see how far we can get this group into enemies defence.

nmVaXeQ.jpg

   That as far as we need. SPGs are going to be crushed in few moments. Problem is that there are way more enemy formations here.

 

GTE1F6Y.jpg

 

l6kShvU.jpg

   2 tanks platoons at least + infantry. Way to much to deal with here. At least enemies don't have artillery that works.

   SPGs are going to turn central part of this map into a death trap for any idiot that tries to push through it.

   We are going full onslaught against imperialists in Europe! Not much time left before end of WW3, i already can see a new Victory Parade on Red Square. 

JSpjHkF.jpg

   We can launch assault operation from Paris against 2 military bases, but our Shpetsnaz Guards Battalion would be better used to counterattack JSF attempts to take Magilyov, Belarus (again). We should not allow Americans to get into our sphere of influence! With their defeat, our forces will be able to assault Ramsteinovskaya Airforces base.

Spoiler

HLIHgOI.jpg

   Enemies will have air support, we will be able to call in regular army troops on top of having airsupport. 

 

q1flyZg.png

   Ah, new American invader to defeat! According to intel, he prefer defensive tactics and not too enthusiastic about going full attack. I am thinking about slowly chipping his forces one by one in attempt to soften his grip on territory and then try to attack. But this plan is made with total lack of knowledge of how Ihsan wil react. Strange to see commander with defensive style of conducting operations leading battalion called "assault battalion".

 

wpIB0fl.png

   Continue to change early phase of operation units composition. Riflemens will be usefull against enemy infantry, while Shpetsnaz tanks will slaughter many US army regulars. Will try to take as many points as possible. APCs with infantry will get to Bravo Boris and hack yet more elections, after that - probably Yanov or Dima. Engineers will take Alyona and then we will see where they will be more usefull.

 

MqUYktw.jpg

   Mission started and there is no time to sit around. Light infantry is loading into APC, they will be used against enemy combat engineers on frontlines, our engineers are moving to point A. Tanks with cover of APCs are going to take position between D, B and Z in order to counter any attempts to breakthrough here, effectively sheilding light infantry on B and blocking road to A.

   First contact. We are slower with taking uplinks, but not for long.

 

jzfeA1R.jpg

   2 squads of cannon meat in the middle and in this area near lake. JSF gunships are not far behind.

 

Pcx8IZ8.jpg

   Opponent leader apperently is using those regulars as recon forces. Gunships are waiting something.

 

edlbkJU.jpg

   Gunships are waiting for a good moment to hit, but avoid my SPAAGs. Not bad, compared to Eurolosers and some of JSF commanders who suicide their choppers into Shpetsnaz AA defences easily.

 

2v7URyw.jpg

   They decided to pick isolated groups. Kamovs will try to tie them up until SPAAGs arrive.

 

VDLIdCO.jpg

   After dealing with choppers, we have short window to penetrate into their airspace and deal with SPGs.

 

o53iibS.jpg

   Kamovs received damage, but with help of jets hostile artillery was killed. Our SPGs are clearing areas in the middle.

 

IGBRcJy.jpg

   SPAAGs doing their job, shaking off Cowboys from Kamov's tails. This is a reason why i am still using tight formation of forces even if enemy can deploy WMDs - isolated units are easy to hunt down with proper type of units.

 

7Py1MTO.jpg

   Jets continue to deliver large guided bombs against JSF armor. Those IFVs have infantry squad supporting them, for sure. We need to find them and gun down their asses!

 

tkB33xH.jpg

   Here they are. SPGs are rubbing hands in anticipation of their defeat and new medals.

 

8zdshwJ.jpg

   Upgraded JSF choppers have rocket barrage ability (as SGB's), which mean they can defeat heavily damaged units in one tap. This make me angry, but it is another reason to have SPAAGs in AA role and use their own missile salvo abilities against American helicopters!

 

UjZBaEF.jpg

   Because Kamovs were shot down, we lost LOS on infantry at Dima, now tanks will provide eyes on their location. Crews of shot down helis are being evacuated.

 

5mRvHod.jpg

   And not only eyes, but burning flames delivery is also in a list of our services for invaders! 

   

4VJZVM4.jpg

   Paying back for our helicopters with our own missile barrage. Fuck you, flying deathtraps!

 

Cflmo1G.jpg

   Our infantry is getting ready to ambush JSF combat engineers near Zhara. Snipers preparing to hit them with 12.7mm.

 

kBvowwd.jpg

   When first enemy soldiers will appear near the entrance to Zhara server hub, they will have their brains propelled out of their skulls!

 

Dez6RqY.jpg

   After Shpetsnaz operators scared away engineers from uplink and drived them into open fields, tanks and SPGs will finish them.

 

zyFYXMv.jpg

   Defeated units can be completely killed. We were shooting so much that evac convertoplane was almost shot down.

 

gmjY1IF.jpg

   Meanwhile, combat engineers on southern part of Mogilyov managed to push and take Yanov. We are going to be hit by WMDs in few moments.

 

q6GFyK5.jpg

   Only 3 units defeated with this Space laser strike? Heh, we will easily recover. Additional tanks and SPAAGs are already on the way.

   Light infantry was called to secure position Dima before combat engineers will get there to secure it. Enemy crashed Bratskoe server hub, so our victroy clocks stopped.

We will not allow that! 20th Armored SGB battalion is tasked with repelling this attack and deliver critical defeat to enemies. If we will successed, Ramsteinovskaya will be defenceless and even Regular army will manage to grab it.

   Tanks are gunning down infantry out of cover. We captured same amount of uplinks as enemy, so battle for Dima or Fedya will be decisive.

   Now we have a free way to Ramsteinovskaya. Enemy captured it many weeks ago, and now we have opportunity to dislodge him, and our battalion will use it for 100%.

   Last region of Western Europe under capital... emm ... i mean imperialists control. Southern European regions don't matter, they can no longer launch attacks on us.

 

Spoiler

dFchRa3.png

   We will have only regular army support in this operation. Not really important, we will be able to push enemies out of Portugal using a momentum of our unstopable onslaught.

 

I0HsscF.png

   Sadly, this time we are far away from each other. This mean our tactics should be less specialized on just steamrolling enemies with brute force. Although our task is to murder our opponent forces, so this mission will still require a degree of specialisation of my forces on mass murder.

 

obkBPAK.png

   I will call additional tanks and other units during operation. Infantry will be needed to upgrade uplinks to get support, as this time big distances between forces means that some units can't get to places where they are needed in time, while special attacks don't have such problems. My plan is to take positions in the middle, but forces will be spreaded enough to avoid enemies from sneaking their own squads of footmobiles around my frontlines troops. 

 

EGNK7rx.jpg

   Forward, my Ukrainian conscripts!

 

GxgdOAM.jpg

   We are going double chopper spam, i suspect more gunships are needed to penetrate to reat positions of our opponents, based on previous experience.

   Now we are assaulting Southern US, after driving JSF out of their positions in Western Europe. We have just 2 territories to conqueror before our Glorious Victory.

   Americans will have airsupport, we will not have anything, other than our ability to hack things.

 

Spoiler

   Umm... why Americans build a copy of region in Portugal?

   My plan is to get to positions near village and block enemies from entering it (especially infantry). We will also block entrance to plato near one of uplinks nearby.

   Tanks see their targets. IFVs will be destroyed easily, problem is with hostile gunships and SPGs.

   Uhh, i would like to have elimination of all JSF forces as my task. But ok, we can work with this. It is obvious that 3 points in the south are going to be mine, as we are closer to them, and main combat will be in the center. Infantry will rule flanks, but AFVs will be a key to defeat Americans near launching pad in the middle of this territory.

   Finally i have some time to write a review of Cryostasis. About month+ after i deleted it!

fefe8d5509e9ca2059675225811a7228.jpg

 

   Cryostasis is next game after Vivisector, made by Action Forms studios based in Ukraine. Game was released in 2008, 3 years after Vivisector and in some regards was big step forward for Action Forms, as it was looking like a "AAA" level of horror FPS. 

   Cryostasis tells a story of scientist/meteorologist Alexander Nesterov, who was leaving his station somewhere in ices of northern oceans. He was tasked with getting on board of ship, which he found trapped in ice in the middle of white cold desert. After getting to the ship, our main hero found himself in strange world of crew becoming monsters walking through frozen corridors. He was forced to fight his way through all those horrors to survive and get out of this mess using bad selection of weapons, slow movement and strange health system, while being haunted by edgy plot and fancy button pressing puzzles.

   Vivisector and Cryostasis are games when examined on their own, are hard to belive that they were made by the same team. Maybe outside of how artsy-fartsy their storytelling is. Everything that was bad in Vivisector is good in Cryostasis, and everything what was good in Vivisector is bad in Cryostasis. So let's look at it closer.

 

   Visuals and presentation.

   Everything in Vivisector was looking really bad by 2005 standarts. In contrast with it, graphics of Cryostasis at times are holding really well even today. Majority of game happens inside of the ship, with few short moments outside, and industrial look of nuclear icebraker would have been a problem in long run for this game, but for the most part developers managed to avoid it. Part of this was achived thanks to art design, level design and color pellet selection. Cold rooms - deep cold blue ambient lighting, sources of heat - warm yellow light. Generally brown industrial looking levels were vastly improved by this play of colors. Environment also changes with game progression, as hero moves through the ship from the bottom to the top. Coupled with rather good visual part of engine in its base, it creates distinct visual style of this game even in dynamics.

   Moreover, visuals were strengthened by some of game mechanics, which i will cover later, making visuals to be part of gameplay.

   Another interesting part of visuals are enemy design and models. Some of them are strange, unique, fairytale-like and allegorical, a bit unexpected and unconventional. Like Prison Guard that have miniature prison cell embedded into his head, or enemy with keyhole instead of his eyes and keys as his claws.

   Main hero also reacts to situation around him - his breathing can be heard in cold rooms, and breathing with appropriate camera movement become more pronounced with body temperature becoming lower and lower. Moments when hero exhales with relief when reaching warm place echoes on some primal level in a player.

   All this creates good immersion effect, leading to player experiencing sometimes this "otherworldly" feel that i like to get in my good escapism.

 

   Gameplay.

   Cryostasis is horror FPS made on tight budget, which dictates its structure, mechanics and level design. Playing it is like playing DooM 3 that had black replaced by blue and sci-fi plasma guns with Mosins and PPShs. Tight corridors, small rooms, linear layout of levels, slow movement of the player, low number of enemies per encounter, slow pacing - this is description of both Doom 3 and Cryostasis. Combat system is also very similar - slow reloads, a little bullet-spongy enemies, 1-2 enemies per fight and 2-3 per serious battle, short distances of firefights, big number of enemies are using magic/melee attacks and so on. Only real difference being that unlike Doom 3 Marine, Nesterov have have flashlight on his chest, that allows him to use it anytime.

   Audio logs and passwords from Doom 3 were replaced by dead crewmembers that have red shining effect around their hearts. Pressing use buttons will trap you inside of a flashback, where you need to control this yet to be killed human and press specific buttons or switches to change a future. Almost always this leads to door becoming open or path being clear to progress.

   Generally level are very linear, with corridors and small rooms, with not too frequent enemy encounter (like 5-10 per level on average), few fancy buttons-pressing-through-flashbacks puzzles spreaded along level and 1-2 story moments.

 

   Fighting in Cryostasis is boring for the most part. 2 reasons - enemies don't react that much to a shot (sometimes not even flinching) and weapons not having a feel of powerfull tool.

   Weapon selection is poor - 3 starting weapons are all melee with almost same mechanics behind them, so they feel more like a rescin of 1 weapon. 2 Mosins (1 with optical sight that you don't really need), 1 semi-auto rifle (SVT), 1 SMG (PPSh) and several other guns that were strane choices. One of them is flare gun, that possibly can do damage to enemies. I am not sure about that, as game doesn't show me effects of this weapon on enemies, and direct hits don't do anything visible to them. Second weapon, the most powerfull one, is a water cannon that fires hot water. When i am saing Water Cannon i mean Water Pistol, as stream of water out of is less powerfull than stream of piss out of gopniks after several bottles of local cheap bear. Ammunition for this... "weapon" are icicles that you collect around the level. It is a short range tool, but t actually works by stunlocking enemies and eating their HP rather fast.

 

anabiosis-16-big.jpg

 

   So playing Cryostasis looks like this - you move through few cold corridors covered in ice, find either a switch or button to press, door opens. You enter - inside a zombie guy appears that was triggered by you stepping on a script. You slowly shoot slowly moving enemy with bolt action that reloads each shot slowly, and after few hits enemy dies and you slowly put a striper clip into your rifle. After that you slowly move through linear corridor to a dead crew member with red thing on his chest, solve an elaborate "press those buttons and switches in particular order" puzzle, another door opens, and you continue.

8572-screenshot-6.jpg

   

   After that you will find a source of heat, which is a part of local health system, charge your health, maybe find a story moment and progress until end. Order of those things can change, but basically all those bits will be in each level of this horror game, developers will not put a interesting spin on game mechanics or level progression, add unusual parts or something along those lines.

   This is very different from fast paced, "meaty" action of Vivisector, big but different levels with medium and long range firefights using belt-fed MGs and rocket launchers, killing sometimes hordes of enemies and getting points and HP in the process, jumping from mass murder in jungles to Alien 2-like sections when you fight "unfinished" monsters crawling vents and so on.

 

   Health system in Cryostasis is interesting, as it is based on body and ambient temperatures. Whole ship is frozen, and as a part of story progression you will unfroze it room by room (with coold ice melting effects on walls). When ambient temperature is lower than body temperatures, you health starts to slowly drop to ambient levels. In order to increase your helath, you "charge" from sources of heat.

BtJZJiY.jpg

A monometer-looking thing on the left lower corner is your health display. Yellow thing is your stamina, red outside circle - ambient temperature. Animation, main character breating and camera movement also changes in those moments and became more relaxed.

7c63aa2c-a301-4e77-be5a-85a77ac6825d.png

   This mechanism is rather good for making traversing this ship a more tense experience, as moving through "blue" cold parts makes you more and more vulnerable and player is searching for next source of heat to take a brake and replenish his health. This helps with feel of progression and gameplay structure, as each new source of warm feels like a comma in a text, a next target and a way to make player feel more paranoid during movement through "hostile" cold areas of the ship.

   Health system also lands well with story of main hero slowly warming up whole ship, as player also would like to do this to make fights easier for him, creating a sort of connection between main hero and a player.

 

Plot.

   Plot have 2 "faces", one being direct voiced narration of Danko, second being allegorical story of The Ship where The Crew did not listen to The Captain, lost their way and thats why ship got stuck, but told in artsy-fartsy way that was annoying to me. A scene with cows, where player watches flashback of a stake becoming ..umm... a stake and than taking control of a guy that was pressing "make stake" button, releasing those cows from a ship into big bright while light was something that made me angry and forced to put game on pause of how hand-fisted message was.

DANKOOOOOOOOOOO!

   If you like this kind of story, than Cryostasis is probably for you. Storytelling itself is done using dialogues heard in flashbacks and hallucinations. Danko story told during main hero watching at drawings that you find in some parts of levels.

normal_1315173242.jpg

 

Spoiler

dab59faf50dac2edfe6777fa99a8daaf.jpg

   Ending makes those allegorical plots more obvious, a little bit sweet but in general i felt it was not worth my attention.

 

   AI and enemies

   Enemy selection is poor - you have Zombie guys with melee attacks (just like in Doom 3), Zombie guys with guns (Just like in DooM 3!), advanced monsters (3-4) with magic attacks (JLiD3!) and 1-2 types of minibosses. Overall you will fight with 8-9 types of enemies in total. Zombie with guns are not much different from Prison Guards, few melee monsters are not mechanically different from Zombies with melee weapons, so as a distinctive enemies you will have less than 5. This problem could have been solved by making enemies to change theor forms or become capable to use new attacks, but that doesn't happens.

  I have nothing for this section about AI itself, even if AI was covered in almost all of my reviews. At least they are not that much bugged, i guess. Imagine Quake 1 level of monsters AI and you get an idea.

 

   Conclusion. 

   Cryostasis wasn't that successful, as by 2010 (1-2 years after release) Action Forms stopped existing as functioning studio, with number of developers moving to mobile game development, which is a big shame. Action Forms was one of long-living studios on barren landscape of CIS interactive entertainment and loosing them was a sad news for me. 

   This horror FPS had number of problems with gameplay being rather "flat" and becoming boring to the middle of singleplayer campaign, thanks to repetative level design, poor weapon selection, low variety of enemies and generally low amount or/and low level of player freedom, coupled with game mechanics not allowing some sort of "sandboxiness" even in linear levels. Horror levels were not high enough for me, Doom 3 was more scary. Cryostasis feels like more better lit Doom 3 with mediocre gameplay and way more artsy narrative.

   Story was another factor - disconected plot of Danko and Soviet scientist killing monsters, not really gripping allegorical fairytale about The Captain and his Ship/Crew were another part of this game leaving almost no traces in PC gamers consciousness.

   Overall mediocre gameplay did not manage to back up great visuals, some good mechanics (health system) and art design, leaving Cryostasis in "obscure games" bin forever. I would recommend to try it for those who want to get immersive slow paced horror, but don't bother to complete it and jump out when it starts to feel repetitive.

   Decided to try a skirmish mode, with AI teammate and against AI. This is an opportunity to see maps that i didn't managed to get on during singleplayer. Also i am thinking about doing a review and a sort of tactics guide, as apperently there are almost no one made a serious look on tactics in EndWar, which suggests that either those people are way better than me, or they played on "Normal" difficulty level.

   Siege gamemode, we need to capture A or kill all defenders. I am playing with an AI teammate, although there is no communication or coordination tools to work with him.

So, I've been playing a game called Star Wars: The Old Republic, or SWTOR for short. It is developed by Bioware, and published by the Evil Administrators (EA), and came out in December, 2011. It's an MMORPG in the Star Wars universe, but it is unknown whether all this is "canon" according to Disney (I haven't seen anything official, and no one in the game can give a straight answer. My guess is it's in limbo, as it still makes money). 

 

Basically, this is back when the Sith lived in large numbers, and controlled an Empire that challenged the Galactic Republic. There are 8 character classes (4 for each faction), each with a different story, gear, companions, etc. Combat is... idk how to summarize it; it makes sense from a game play perspective, but I just don't know how to describe it... you have an ability bar at the bottom of your screen, with hot keys 1 through = set up for your actions (attacks, heals, buffs, etc.), and you lock on to enemies and allies with an autotarget feature, and you smash your keys and do more damage than the enemy does to you. I don't know how it compares to other games, as this is new to me. Characters have health bars, and stats that increase certain aspects of your character, like Endurance, Critical chance and damage, Alacrity (attack speed), strength (damage), armor ratings, etc.; and all these stats can be upgraded via gear and leveling your character, per usual. You also have dialogue options, as well as the choice as to which side of the force your character sides with (you can have light side Sith, and Dark side Jedi, among other things). There's a lot of stuff packed into the game (which is free to play, BTW), and I wish I had the motivation to do a nice, concise review and maybe even class specific series like what loooser did with Endwar, but I don't have the drive to do that. 

 

I don't have any screen shots of my characters, as it doesn't work for me for some reason :wacko:, but I will leave you with one of the cinematics, which are pretty good IMO. They're nothing like the actual game, BTW.

   Another playthrough of skirmish mode with AI commander partner. New map, strange that in main campaign devs had situation when regions right next to each other had exactly the same map assigned to them. This one was a little bit more fun as giant walls and barricade in entrance made me do what i never did during singleplayer - breach walls. It would have been better if EndWar singleplayer had more varied objectives and mission structures.

   And Raid again, as i did very small amount of those during singleplayer.

   AFV AI tries to use roads to move for long ranges. Also, it is interesting that in almost all skirmish games i had, AI commander on our side didn't interfered with my part of battlefield, we manage to spread our forces without problems.

   This tank is actually a giant thing on tracks.

   Infantry can cross here, but there are defensive UGV parked there, who are pretty good at killing infantry. Also, i don't have it, lol. AFV can't get through barricades.

   A lot of animations for soldiers is actually well done and cinematic. Sometimes i wish this game was more infantry focused just to hang out more with them.

   Animations of loading into APCs, deploying from helicopters and some others are nearly cutscene level of quality.

   Head on clash with 2 platoons of Eurotanks ended badly for Euroweaklings, thanks to airsupport and my maneuver of tanks with depleted "sheilds". Usually in a fight of 2 MBT platoons vs 2 MBT platoons there are almost no survivors, as in "combat chain"/balance of EndWar those units are on the same level and don't have upper hand over each other. We took rather small loses of 2 tanks vs 7-8 of theirs.

And their wheeled death traps have ATGMs. Hmm... i think i saw ATGM armed wheeled death trap recently done by one of our forum members. Did he worked for Ubisoft before that?

   Raid, again. This map could be seen in my spam about EndWar campaign playthrough, but in other gamemode. Raid use a part of the map that was not relevant for Conquest session. Using balanced loadout, want to see different units of Euroweaklings from upclose.

   UGV's return fire staggered our weak tanks. They don't know what to do!

   Only with help of IFVs, 2nd tank platoon and combat engineers we finally started to win this very hard battle against weak defence structures of this building!

   US infantry tried to snatch uplink right in front of our troops. Because we are Euroweaklings, we need all our units combined fireweakness to deal with those group of Americans.

   Some other things i collect for a review.

   AI pathfinding is taking into account roads.

TZhlDZO.png

 

   Infantry can enter building only in specific place and from specific side. Although, during the game you can watch almost a real time cutscene when soldiers enter structure, devs made a fancy custom animation for that. Sadly, it doesn't work in replays.

 

Mo4rwj6.gif

 

   In buildings engineers are dangerous for armor. You can see how one IFV was blown up by RPG to the rear hull.

3Ktj4Xf.gif

 

   They even leave buildings with fancy animation. Infantry squad is broken to 4 fireteams, each with individual rudementary pathfinding.

M7bT05a.gif

 

   This substructure of infantry unit allows to make soldiers to do different things and look more alive. For example here you can see how 1 fireteam is taking cover near building corner while others are spreading around and move towards designated point.

   Game have a lot of X-plosions. Note how trees lose their leafs after first shells hits enemies.

   Continue to collect some stuff for review (for nitpicking, hehe). Decided to go retard and play CoD MW2 Washington D.C. mission-esque skirmish battle, but taking role of Russians instead of Cowboys. Also, will look at how Normal AI works.

   My plan is to fuck around with infantry, look at some details of this game while artillery will be busy killing JSF attackers and their hordes of Ramirez cannon meat.

a1pQSrq.jpg

   SPGs continue to shell enemies. IFVs are trying to get out of range of our artillery, they were advancing to frontline until first shells started to drop. I guess MW2 mission would have been way different, if enemies had artillery support, haha.

 

aT38Al4.jpg

   Infantry will hack servers to get some additional support when reinforcements arrive.

 

zd3zxN2.png

 

LXSG6L6.jpg

   JSF soldiers are trying to advance using what cover they have, but we see them well enough.

 

81jo2Qt.jpg

   Playing with AI teammate allows to observe some of his behavior. For example this group of tanks were parked or moved around near uplink A that we need to defend, but only now, when enemies are getting close, AI dispatched them to deal with Cowboys.

 

bQAEhqJ.jpg

   Meanwhile our opponents are trying to flank, sending IFVs with infantry. AI isn't commited to this attack too much, as majority of units are located in the central area of this battlefield.

 

sWhcHvx.jpg

   After getting hit by artillery, IFVs are dropping infantry so they can jump into nearby building and use it as a shelter.

 

SyYEZhW.jpg

   Infantry is almost one with hacking. Also, minefield on the road isn't my.

 

z9nYcbj.jpg

   More groups of helicopters are trying to break our defences. AI probably picked gunship spam because we have a lot of artillery and their gound units would have had serious problems, if used.

   After suffering serious casualties, their artillery is running away. We received light damage, thanks to number superiority and a fact that we previously hit their artillery and damaged them.

   Infantry have nearly FPS level of number of animations, like firing from cover, firing from left/right corner, leaning to cover, leaning to corner (left/right), standing/crouch/prone positions, etc. etc. 

 

GIzhntP.jpg

   Enemy tries to sneak infantry in one of our own bunkers. But entrance to it is on our side, so they need to run some distance. Repositioning my SPG to aboid AT fire from attackers.

 

kB8QZd5.jpg

   Same platoon of friendly tanks were tasked with destroying attacking hostile squad of infantry. AI is keeping them for defence, which is good.

 

S1MXKG2.png

   Choopers are trying to get to our SPGs, probably seeing them as most dangerous. 2 infantry squads on our right flank already. Looking at the map you can see how enemies are flanking us from left and right (North and South). Not bad, i thought that Normal AI is just dumb, but i feel they are just less agressive and have slower "mouse clicks" per minte/rate of giving orders. 

 

TzBNREZ.jpg

   Infantry moved to counter American soldiers on left flank, but squad re-grouping to fight with nearby gunships, as enemy infantry is our of their LOS.

 

kgbzwFO.jpg

   Artillery finished infnatry on the left, gunships received too much damage and now retreating. We need to clear our right flank.

 

QbuYISr.jpg

   Maskirovka is back, we can reposition this squad to block hordes of imperialists on the right from assaulting SPG positions.

   For review (infantry AI related stuff):

Spoiler

   Squad AI is capable of spreading forces across multiple separate cover positions. Action games usually have problems with this type of situations, you can see sometimes when enemies are trying to take same cover in FPS. Also, not many FPS/action games have squads in a first place.eIwLh2K.gif

 

Gq0g3NG.jpg

   Fireteam that didn't manage to find cover in certain distance is located behind others. This could be solved if devs increased range at wich soldiers can search for relevant cover positions.

 

1NiSFn5.jpg

   Engineers are entering bunker.

 

7yTvLZc.gif

   Camera snaps into "cinematic" position (if you don't press any buttons) and shows how unit is entering structure by fireteams. Soldiers have animation of starting to run and stopping, which make them feel more fluid than even in some of modern RTS. 

 

HIPGuog.gif

   Same with infantry unit that captured point - cinematic position of camera + custom "we are posing for our new album cover" animation.

 

5OwXyRr.gif

   MAXIMUM CINEMATICS MODE ENGAGED

 

9bxUB5I.gif

   A lot of objects on map count as cover for infantry, but they can be destroyed (sometimes just by tracks of AFV).

 

78UQm2B.gif

   Mostly correct stances for object behind which they take cover, but "Behind enemy lines" had more precise detection of cover height and shape. It doesn't really matter here, as units deal damage to each other in more abstract way, than in "Behind enemy lines", which is more of simulation type of tactical RTS.

 

YDkvBFL.jpg

 

GrzaZpo.jpg

 

BBt6SSC.jpg

 

   More examples of chesthighwalls type of cover

Xny0KZk.jpg

   Also, just noticed - soldier with heavy helmet usually have faceshield opened, but when approaching frontline he slides it down to cover face. Neat detail. 

 

xnOhI4C.jpg

   Palms are as big as their whole heads. Hard working Russians, obviously.

 

Iwc1JR2.gif

   During firefights, some soldiers can move and switch between many animations in short amount of time. For example engineer on the left from standing position switched to low crouch, than moved a bit and went to high crouch, and few moments later - prone. Immersion!

   Metro-2 (2005, don't confuse with Metro 2033 and Last Light, those are separate) review in progress. Visuals indoors are bugged, textures of structures are displayed incorrectly. Outdoors sections are fine. Playing with some of graphics options didn't helped. In fact you can't change resolution when in game (or even just in menu). Game takes place in Soviet times, main hero kills a lot of communists in progress, main location is Metro-2., a secret section of Moscow subway system made only for high level members of the Communist Party.

UevCMBm.png

   Headshots are pretty satisfying to make, is it will finish enemies way faster (1 shot) than trying to hit them in center mass, where they can absorb 5+ bullets easily. And visual feedback is not bad - ragdoll have a weight and headshots feels impactful. Enemies also lose their headgear in the process.

   This bugged texture work is really annoying.

   Bullets reliably bounce of metal and hurt you, even if you shoot at 90degr. to the surface and locate you character at some range.

 

I0jn3iA.png

   Strong parallax/bump mapping to represent damages to the walls from explosions. Kind of like in FEAR.

   And of course, propaganda placards. You can't call yourself a Soviet theme game without those hanging everywhere.

4jelPFa.png

   2 bullet marks on metal bar is from pistol, tried to shot over it but game decided that bullets should be placed under aiming circle, when you are near an obsticle, and bounce bullets back at me. 

 

EJjd4od.png

   AI is dumb, although Normal difficlty level should have been called "kind of Hard". Also, main hero animations are wrongly timed - just a second after shooting he starts idle animation when he pulled pistol up and obstruct whole screen with it. Game is clunky, main hero can get stuck in walls that have some details modelled, walls with windows, vents that are located on a chest levels, physics objects, on small scenery details on the ground like railroads and so on. Although you can unstuck rather easily from it, but during combat this feels bad.

   Although headshots are still fun to land.

   Something connected to a plot, but i don't care. I am bothered by angle at which our protagonist is holding his SKS.

   Those guys probably worked in Black Mesa, thats why they are used to seeing piles if bodies and don't react to them.

   Oh, ventilation system! How original. This is no Venom: CO, so those places are safe from squads of low-polygon SF soldiers bursting in and this mean those vents are boring as fuck.

   We are progressing and game textures are improving. Maybe to the end of this game all the bugs and clunkiness will disappear as well!

EIcrqSK.png

   Pe Pe As Eh have very clunky firing mechanics. Main fire is bursts only, and during them gun recoils down and to the right, while having violent spasms and jumping all over the screen. It is funny how SKS have less recoil than this thing. PPSh is for shotgun range and center mass only.

 

Wuzcf89.png

  Ummm.. comrade ragdoll? Are you Ok?

 

awLF99S.png

   Oh, i see. Comrade Ragdoll tries to show that this is Soviet themed game. Immersion!

 

dance-03_02.jpg

 

 

HrR9pY8.png

   Because of this strange recoil, and thanks to how hard is to really control it, majority of your shots are going to hit anything bad enemy head. Going for center mass will give you this result - a lot of bullets hit enemy legs and do little damage. 

 

zdiY8nr.png

   Trying to aim chest - i think more bullets hit door behind this guy than intended target.

   Owwww shit! Even firing pistol bullets through those things is a pain in the ass and very dangerous to main character. Firing a fullauto gun that shakes in the hands like a jackhammer is going to be a suicide!

   Ummm... I guess it will not be a suicide.... this AI gave me some time to aim, because spotting is hard.

   "What?! Our soldiers are so uneducated and inferior that they can't figure out grenades that we supplied to them?!" Yes, this is Beriya.

 

   And any shooter from those times should have sewage level. Metro-2 is no excpetion, but it is full of GULag prisoners that managed to escape from the state and now doing bandits stuff. And this level looks horrible even on not modern machines.

   Metro-2 singleplayer as a whole continues to be mediocre experience at best. 4 similar missions of "go to first/last train car and press Us[sr]e button" or "Go to another train's  first/last train car and press Us[sr]e button" were especially boring.

   "Textures on those boxes are very good, taking into account how terrible we look in particular."

   Thanks to recoil of AK-47, a lot of boxes were killed as well during this firefight.

   Um... this mission was completed several posts above, no? Oh, there is a time limit now, so everything ok, it is a brand new mission with unique objectives. We need to unhook last train card as it is on fire. Personally, i would leave it there, it would make main hero appearance in next mission more cinematic!

   Corners are hard to figure out of bandits AI. Probably because textures are broken, because those places never saw light of Lenin's ideas.

   This guy is so stupid that he didn't even understood that he no longer have brains. Although, he didn't had them in a first place, so maybe this is realistic.

   Second shot in his mouth did the job. He no longer can spew his simple barks, so AI decided that it is no longer needed in Metro-2.

   Traitors attempt to ambush main characters continues, but they don't know that this guy is main hero of a videogame, so they have no chances.
