We have been playing this for a couple of weaks now and the axis seems overpowered. Once the tanks come out Allies have a hard time keeping up. What startgeies do you guys use?
First for some corrections, it's week and weeks not weaks :). And you mean strategies.
By the way, weak means not strong.
But I should say: Get airborne with bazooka's or just upgrade your Sherman tanks with the better main gun which is called the Firefly Sherman. But Relic kinda calls it m1a1c upgrade or something like that.
Churn out the 57mm guns and position them in choke points and cover them with some infantry. Incidently, I found the best strategy to defeating the AT guns is by rushing infantry squads (preferably Volks with MP40 or BAR upgraded infantry) at the gun, using right click - not attack move - to move right on top of them. Then as your squad closes in they cannot fire at you and you just swamp them and they should go down in a few seconds. You can also take the downed AT gun and use as your own to pester enemy tanks - this is one feature I love in CoH. Under no circumstance use any armour when you see an AT gun, back out ASAP and move your infantry in. Or as tharulerme said get some airborne with bazooka's.
It's ok when an Anti-Tank weapon got "bonus-damage" against armoured vehicles.... but it's clearly shit when a 57mm gun can penetrate the front armour of my tiger while the fucking 5mm shrapnel-shield of the AT can deflect an 88mm projectile of my Tiger. To your question, u have only to mess around with AT-Guns ... they destroy everything, ad some infantrie for close combat purpose and you are invincible. :0wned:
the gun you upgrade your shermans with does not upgrade your shermans to the 17pdr "FireFly" it puts the long barrel 76mm tank gun, which is the m1a1c
I didn't make it!
Axis tank's are beaten with many different Strategies Please PM me and i will tell you them, i don't feel like doing it in here, if you would like to talk to me im [email]mikey_Hekoe@msn.com[/email] that's my cuzin's msn but idc! i use it, so go ahead and add me ill be glad to talk to you about the game and many different thing's the game is pretty simple but yet much fun to me :)
I usually prefer to keep them busy with infantry ( atleast the Panthers or the Tiger ) and then I flank them from the rear with usually 2 or 3 Shermans or M10's.
Three shermans microed well or anti tank guns (who die horrible to snipers)
Calliope, artillery, 105 Howitzer, bloody m126 pershing.
I suggest you try Armoured Command and taste the glory.
The Idea is is to fight those bad boys with 57mm and M10 in their flank while advancing with lightvehicles and infantry.
The game is not that hard, and it is a lot easier if you advance a yard at a time because you can easily flank around a house or hedgerow.
I think the armored command for the allies is a good bet too actually, you can heal all your tanks in battle, get free and instant replacements in late game against the axis its good.
Don't get it in 1v1 though.
