Hearts of Iron
« on: 15-05-2009, 16:05:41 »
yeah, this magnificent strategy series for PC, for REAL armchairgenerals.

I know that here is a lot of players of those games. Maybe we could organize big multiplayer game some time?


All discussion related to HoI series here :)

I'm such a nightmare with this game that I don't even dare to show my face on multiplayer. I always manage to make the wrong decisions.

I did manage to push the Allied forces back in the sea at Overlord.

I have not played any HoI games, but I'm most certainly going to test HoI III.

Yeah, the HoI3 map sucks. I don't think I'll get it.

I've played HoI 1 and 2 and loved them both, but I the game doesn't do multiplayer very well. I tried playing with my friend a while back and the inability to pause the game made me just get overwhelmed.

Hopefully the new one will have better AI too since the current version doesn't respond as well as they should sometimes, though I've heard mods improve this.

I played 2, and I dunno, its just too complex for me, I like the Total War series better, its similar, but simpler

Every semester break I make a HOI II LAN-party with two friends from university. During the two or three days we play it, we listen to musik from the WW2 period and everybody babbles only in propaganda slogans to emphasize the glory of the nation he is playing.  ::)
This is always a lot of fun.
I am very excited how Hoi III will be. I will definatly play it.

I've played HoI2 few times and it looked awesome. I'm going to definitely get the third one (although knowing how these guys' games are really complete only after several patches and expansions maybe I just entertain myself with EUIII until HoI3 is really ready in a few years after its release :P).

Man, I remember back when I was in the Army

One guy in squad next door kept talking about HoI all the friggin' time

I wanna try it out but I think he will find out and make me quit my job and play it online with him for the rest of my life

Anyhow, if you complare CIV and HoI. How much heavier is HoI? Is it true that I gotta read a manual as the size of the holy bible and then play test rounds for 2 - 3 weeks and then give it a go?

The game is a good deal more complex than Civ4, but if you play as a large resource rich country that focuses mostly on ground forces like Germany or the USSR it's straightforward enough that you can pretty much jump right into a game(the fact that if you start in 1936 you get a while to familiarize with the game before combat starts helps too).

That being said I've been playing it since HoI 1 was around and I still don't fully understand how naval combat works  :-\
