Hi guys From my last chat with SaillingGuy, I think we all agree to the following : 1. Let falco come in as replacement for thesharpened right away. He will have the same points thesharpened did in previous rounds 2. Let CharlyG and Sleet repeat both their scenarios against falco. Please set up both...

Sometimes I wonder if this kind of threads are actually a marketing tool for the company to make forums a bit more active or something (J2D, unmask yourself!) I mean, rattling nonsense from begining to end, so the only reasonable meaning I can find to it is the above mentioned. Don´t waste your time...

A couple of tips: - Use "hold fire" a lot. This avoids your AT guns and infantry giving away their position during the AI turn - which draws British tanks like flies and leaves the unit dead or surpressed. Fire only when necessary and give priority to ambushing the tanks. - Holding the 2 frontline ...

Don´t give up! The show has just begun... Let me tell you how I did it : First, Force selection is VERY important. You know you are low on armor and they are strong on it, but you have the defensible positions from the begining. The 37mm AT and both AT rifle units are a MUST. Then go for Engineers (...

Hi Falco! Welcome around! We expect some more tournaments will be organized after we finish the current one. We are almost done with this one though. Maybe there is a free spot for you if we have a player droping out confirmed in a few days, so you might play at least the last round if you are inter...

No worries folks. Drop outs were considered in writing the tournament rules and we have a solution for them. If we finish this Round and the guy has not shown up yet, then opponent will score average points from his flight and we will try to find a replacement (which we might actually have by the wa...

Nice little homage to Kelly´s Heroes here Topo. Great movie that fits perfectly with your alternate WW2 History atmosphere imo.

That presentation looks really cool.

To follow the rule, we would need to wait and see final results for Allied flight this round to get the average score. Then compare to your proposed score with Logan5 confirmation and give you the points accordingly. Could you give us the modified score as to how it should look like if Logan5 would...

I just want to say all this looks amazing...it´s like a whole new game! Hope Topo goes to the end and completes the final campaign with all scenarios. Please, count on me for playtesting them if you need, or any gameplay ideas I might add. Writing up a little story seems like a must as well. Pouring...

One very entertaining (and effective) tactic I am finding playing as Axis in the new expansion MP games is precisely moving those 88´s around the map, looking for nasty positioning and giving my opponenets some headaches not knowing when or where Mr 88´s will appear again. A bit unrealistic from a h...

Re: "A Duplicate Bridge Too Far" Tournament

Not wanting to give shawnt63 any ideas but is there any merit in the Axis grabbing the easy flag(s) and digging in to wait for the Allies to attack? Not so much trying to win the map, more damage limitation ... and you never know an opening might develop for counterattack. I think you might be in t...

you need to make extra use of combined forces to take out the french armour I find that french tanks are very succeptible to a german engineer assault....hint hint. Use your arty and air power to clear a way on a flank then exploit the breach...works for me almost all the time. And those sweet 88´s...

I think clarity and info the players is always welcomed, mainly to let them know how good and easy to use this system is. The problem is not in the system itself. For me, the MP system is great. If I want to play a game, I look for open challenges first and I get a game going in seconds. If there is...

Not a good day (night actually) for the Allies this time : AXIS (Acererak) : Win (30 pts) + 9 Flags (90 pts) + 30 units killed (60 pts) - 14 units lost (42 pts) = 138 pts ALLIES (SailingGuy) : 0 pts Axis Armor might finished all Allied defenses swiftly and the rest of the battl...

BF really hit the mark for me and I am quite happy exploring early war scenarios. I am sure East Front and Pacific can be great settings for a BA2 and 3. For more BA expansions, maybe Italy, Marketgarden or Balcans campaign could be nice. How about a Fallschimjagger expansion? that would be awesome!...

No because think about this: A newcomer buys the game but never visits the forums. (I understand that the majority of sales are from those that don't visit forums) So he/she goes to the multiplayer feature and what do they see? NOTHING NADA ZILCHO BLANKO, so they have no way of knowing there's 100'...
