Strategy Guide Thu, 12 July 2012 16:59
I was wondering if there was any word on whether or not the strategy guide was going to be translated into English? If it were, I would buy it.

I've even considered buying it in French and using Google Translate to make my own English version. My luck would be that as soon as I finish the task of translating, an English version would be released. Any word?

If I remember right, DoW has said that they will translate the book into English. I believe they are as good as their word (they always have been), so I'm sure they are still planning an English translation.

Being such a HUGE book (what is it, 500+ pages) I'm sure it takes a while. I would say don't translate it on your own unless you're desperate for tactical help. It sounds like a huge task...! Cool

Wow, 500+ pages! I think I'll wait on it. I'd enjoy reading it, but I'll try to get some tactics from some advanced players online. Do you know of anywhere that shows the dice roll probabilities?

There is an Excel spreadsheet on Praxeo's userpages - he is the author of the tactics guide.

The book is called the "Tactics AND Strategy Guide" and it's divided into two distinct sections.
And while the dice-odds are great (especially the ones that help you out calculating how many dice to shoot at a target when you need to get a flag or an armor overrun, etc.) the part of this book that REALLY helped me was the "Strategy" part of it.

Here you learn how to control the flow of cards, the time pressure of a map, the layout and when it's worth it to gamble, and when to play it safe.

I can't recommend this book enough for any fan of this game.

And why wait for the translation? French is a wonderful language and easy to learn!

I am surprised that there is no software that can translate the scanned pages!

If someone took the time to scan every page, there is probably a software that could come up with an approximation of the words...but I bet it would be similar to Babblefish or Google Translate where the idea is there but it's a little bit jumbled. I would much rather a person translate it so we can buy an English version.

Like I said, I'm sure DoW is working on it since they said they were... Cool

Just to let everyone know...Nygaard let it slip that he may be the one to translate...at least the strategy section! Come on, Nygaard, it'll be easy!!! Very Happy
