  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

In regular AoD I relied mostly on corps-sized formations, with each corps having 1 brigade each of artillery, anti-tank, and engineers. I would attach AA to HQs and self-propelled artillery to my armored and motorized divisions. Cavalry, if I had any, would have armored cars attached.

In CORE there is such a bewildering array of new brigades I don't know where to start. Playing as Germany, can I stick to my normal formula of ART, AT, and ENG for my corps? And what about the different levels of engineer, like Pionier and motorized?

Engineers are divided into two versions, the combat pioneers and the bridging engineers.
HQ shold still get AA. For Armor and Mech I like to use SP-Art but may later change to Assault guns. For Infantry stick with Art if you can live with the speed penalty. Otherwise use SP-Art, light tanks or Assault guns. I would not use AT - not enough bang for the buck.
If you have a good research team you may consider researching rocket art - rather cheap and good stats.
