Is it possible to take cities that are defended by artillery?

    I have noticed that when a city has ~10 artillery units it seems completely untakeable. Even when all the city defence is gone and i have airstriked the artillery to very weak all my tank die every time despite having a ">99,9%" probability to win.

    Is it possible to win over such a defence?

    Artillery has always been too strong in RTW. This is why I virtually eliminated them my version.

    However, in version 2.0 they will make a return, as corps and armies commanders.

    I can remember a Soviet Stack of doom :scared::suicide::hide::faint: if your problem is halve as bad as my situation was better research Nukes i had to use 2 or 3 just to weaken it

    The Reich will not falter no Stack of Doom will stop me :mwaha::mwaha::mwaha:

    Stacks of doom are less likely in my Historical version, as I make it unhappiness to have units in a city.

    Thats good to hear but a Stack of Doom outside a city is more likely to be a bigger threat So in other words your work did nothing to circumvent the type of Stack of Doom i was facing

    Problem is that the AI is confused about defending cities or creating unhappiness, so it ultimately spreads itself out over most cities anyhow.
