    I have sent them a crash report and i have tried to reach out to them on twitter and just waiting for a reply now. Have plenty of space so it can’t be that. Would like to know if anyone else have this problem...

    Took the plunge and can confirm, YES, you can pause with the button in the upper left, issue orders at your leisure, then unpause and have the orders executed. In this way it can be played like a wego game with “turns” of any length.

    It’s amazing how well this works on iPhone. Feral is on such a streak. God how I wish Paradox would have Feral port EUIV or CK2 or even (especially) Victoria 2. Maybe do like they did with Tropico and just make a mobile port of one of them renamed without a number.

    Damn iPhone now too? Never played this before is it similar to C&C games or is it all attacking rather than base building?

    Does anything carry over like promoting units or any RPG elements or just a straight up RTS attacking game?

    Thanks for confirming that. For me this makes the game way more approachable on a phone so that’s good to know.

    Definitely would be nice and Feral would be the best for the job since Paradox on mobile so far has been a bit underwhelming :( (with Prison Architect being the lone exception). I just think Paradox believes there’s not enough financial return to warrant bringing their big premiums over which is why we have game of war/NOT fleet command “Stellaris” as their big mobile offering at the moment and they might be right, the risk may not be worth the reward.

    What Paradox wants to charge for Europa Universalis IV or Crusader Kings 2 (my belief is price parity with the PC counterpart) and what they would “need” to charge on the AppStore may be very far apart... and while CS2, Stellaris, and EUIV are highly regarded amongst strategy fans as some of the best but they don’t have the household name value of a game like Civilization and even then people were endlessly complaining that Aspyr were charging way too much for that game on the iOS platform.

    With all that said I do believe we will see big brother Paradox on the AppStore one day and it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if it’s unannounced or announced shortly before release and the first game out of the gates is Europa Universals IV or even Crusader Kings 2 (with the popularity of part 3 at the moment they might take a chance at a really good port).

    Tried the tutorials. Did the basic ones but the links for the others don’t seem to exist. Eg about base building

    keep playing skirmish. Easy mode but can’t seem to ever be able to make tanks. Lots of soldiers but keep getting whooped the second German ranks come along. Any tips ?

    Tips? I think you should play the single player first.
    The story is ok, and the single player teaches you the basics like the tech tree and 3 division types for US, as well as the use of unit skills like mines, fire up, etc.

    Yes they were really helpful. They suggested a few things like make restrictions isn’t on in the settings and network connection etc Is all ok. What worked for me was turn the my phone off and then on again. When it came back on I got a lot of notifications asking if I’m sure I want to download the extra content (as you would get when purchasing in app purchases)as it never asked me 1st time around.hope it helps

    Thanks a ton! I've re-installed the game, restarted my phone, restored IAP's and worked like a charm!

    FWIW, I’m on the latest iOS, 14.5.1, iPad 7th Gen, and have no issues with any tutorials or missions, including the Opposing Front content.

    I just read about the pause feature, and I have to check that because it will be a game changer. As it stands it’s very difficult (for me, anyway) to control all over the map and get everything set up while trying to manage the little quirks of the touch controls.

    I wouldn’t go so far as to say that. I will say for me personally, playing on an iPhone 11 Pro, it’s just not enjoyable. But that’s just me

    It’s much more playable on iPhone than Northgard. I enjoy this on my iPhone 11. Got a refund for Northgard.

    In case anyone loves this game as much as me:

    I contacted Feral about two issues in the Opposing Front Brit campaign:
    The Casualty station not being able to use medic kit when in command wheel mode and the inability to get the Special Air Service medal on Carpiquet: The Airfield.

    They were able to reproduce both issues and a fix will be implemented in a patch they hope to release before the end of the month.

    Feral once again shows they’re one of the best developers in my eyes.
