I tried to play through some more of the campaign today, it was going fine, then a group of infantry (Who were scripted to spawn from the edge of the map as a way of annoying me) rushed my base. I had a Sherman right there, so no worries, I let it do its thing.
Five minutes later, i go back to my base there and all 3 units are still alive, with about 4/6 soldiers alive in each, with my sherman firing away like a moron, wearing down their healthbars one by one until the game decided they were dead. It was infuriating, my sherman was within 10 feet of the bastards, and it couldn't kill them because the game arbitrarily decided that these troopers could survive 30+ rounds from a sherman. In World War 2, if a tank rolled up that close to a unit of soldiers it would turn them into pulp.
I think Men of War has spoiled me, but I find nothing about 2 units throwing bullets at eachother in the open engaging or fun. Would an easier difficulty do anything to remedy this? Are there any mods that make damage a bit more realistic?
