Blitzkrieg 1939/40

Author File Description
EEGamer4ever
File Details
Style: Fixed Force
# of Scenarios: 1
Version: Empires: Retail Release
It was September the first, 1939. German armoured forces, Stosstruppen and the Luftwaffe were prepared.
Months of training were excellent, the weapons were modern.
The Führer gave the order to start "Fall Weiss", the attack on Poland.
The Messerschmitts Bf-109 cleared the path for the Heinkel and Junker Bombers to destroy everything.
Airports, communications centres and houses burned down.
There was horrible confusion among the enemy troops.
Then, the German "Panzers" rolled into the country and they eliminated all resistance.
After a few days, the enemy surrendered. This was the perfect strategy.

On May the fifth, 1940, the Germans attacked The Netherlands and Belgium.
With incredible speed and flexibility.
Again, the bombers destroyed a lot of enemy troops.

Though the Dutch fought desperately at some strategic points, most of them couldn't fight the Germans.
They're army was better and faster.
When The Netherlands refused to surrender, the Luftwaffe flew missions to Rotterdam.
The city burned down, over 30,000 citizens died in the flames.

During the "Five-Days-War", around 2200 Dutch soldiers and many Dutch citizens died and The Netherlands had to surrender.
Again, this was the perfect strategy.

...this was Blitzkrieg.

Features:

- Bombing Raids
- Special Events
- Real names of armies, divisions and generals
- Take down your enemies with strong, quick moves
- Many hours of work
- And more…

I've made this scenario/campaign to give players another view on WWII. Because, almost everything about WWII you see on Empires Heaven, is D-Day, Stalingrad (not trying to annoy you, Mechy ), or other stuff, and in all of them, you play on Allied side.

I wanted to change this. I've made up a nice map, a storyline (which is historical accurate), units, and some triggers (about 120).

Thanks to Derfel Cadarn, Mechstra, Talon Karrde and Adder for playtesting this and pointing out bugs.

LittleNick6 when you download it after it is done do you have to unzip the file. and if so how do i get to play it on Empires
Talon Karrde you unzip it using winzip, winrar or some similar program. the .ssa file goes empires/data/campaigns
LittleNick6 ok i did that but i cant play it in my game. I Ziped it to the folder but when i go to the game its not showing up
LittleNick6 When i start it says create a new folder i clicked it the hit next then it wants me to browse for a folder. Then i got to empires/data/campagin then i click next. Then it wants me to add a file or a folder. Then i got to Empires/Data/Campagin. then i hit ok and then i click Zip Now. Then it says Zip Finish then i clikc done.

Id there anyhting i did wrong and if you ahve winzip can to tell me how you do it
Mechstra Well, first of all I think you're spelling 'Campaign' wrong - but what I do when I download files is to open the zip file, then drag the relevant files to their right places.
maggotus little nick,
1. double click zip file in explorer. 2. winzip fires and displays .ssa file
3. left click on it once
4.right click and choose extract .
5 navigate to the campaign folder.
6.UN check "use folder names" (< that was the problem)

Playability: 4
The playability was good to except the difference between easy and medium was to big, Easy was to easy for me but medium was a little hard some times.

Balance: 4
The balance is good, but in poland i had 1 army with tanks and that could overun the polish army easy.

Creativity: 5

Because, almost everything about WWII you see on Empires Heaven, is D-Day, Stalingrad (not trying to annoy you, Mechy ), or other stuff, and in all of them, you play on Allied side.''
