[GUIDE] Nystrom German build order

Nystrom was one of the best COH1 players and has gone on to play in COH2.  Last I checked he claimed he was 33-0 (and I would believe it based on watching him play).

After watching his Twitch stream (here) you can see his German build:

  • Engineer
  • Infanterie Companie
  • Grenadier
  • Grenadier
  • Grenadier
  • Grenadier
  • HMG
  • Tier 2
  • Fuel Depot

Commander choice is Jaeger Infantry.

Upgrade an engineer with a flamer when possible.

Nystrom plays a very atypical German game.  He focuses on aggressive Grenadier play, overwhelming the enemy with local superiority and mind games with his HMG.

Instead of scattering his army, he sends all troops (both engis and the first few grenadiers) to his "opponent's" side of the map.  He never chooses to fight early battles 1v1, instead always having a numerical advantage because of how many troops he sends. For example, he'll use his first two pioneers to fight an enemy engineer, waiting for backup if one of them is further behind.

The general goal is to harass the enemy and force him to overcommit to tier 1 units to fight you back.  You're trying to buy time while you tech straight to Tier 3.  If he has only light vehicles and infantry, get an Flakpanzer.  Otherwise, get a Panzer IV.
