If you want to play a MP game just issue an open challenge yourself. You will get an opponent pretty quick, believe me (no more than one day, two maximum) Or just PM any guys around the forum with an invitation for a private game and I am sure most of us would gladly accept. I have around 5 MP games...

FT17s and Scheniders don´t usually stand too long against PZIIIs in the game. I think everything behaves in the right way. On my side, I am enjoying a lot the new challenges of the expansion. Single missions are much more difficult but definitely doable. AI has improved as well. I was expecting a ca...

The "realism" discussion has been adressed quite a few times already, and I am afraid it´s just a matter of tastes. In my opinion, first of all for the game to be playable and balanced (specially considering there is a MP mode) some concessions to historic realism have to be made. That said, at the ...

Agreed! I have watched them already so many times, but still feel amazed at their quality and superb style everytime I log into the game. Sometimes, even spend some minutes looking through them once more. Has Richard (I guess he is the artist, right?) published any comic book with this amazing style...

Third MP map with some important issues (River Line) : - Flags for Allies are being counted wrong (it shows 2/6 when I actually have 6 flags, so i guess it should be probably the opposite way, 6/2) Please fix MP maps as soon as possible, since they are a bit unplayable in their current estate. Thanks!

Agreed. Feels a little bit weird.

If you have a 0% chance to penetrate then you only get a mroale hit if you cause a deflection. If you are not seeing this it is a bug. I cant see how it could be for one type of unit though - can you check if you do see it what units it happens on? At least happened once (defelction hit causing NO ...

Schenider P16 gun

Hi!

After several MP and solitaire games, I am wondering if french P16 armored car is working as intended. No matter how many times I shoot, even if I manage to score a bouncing hit, not even one point of morale would drop from the enemy (Armored cars also). Is this supposed to be this way?

Thanks!

I think it sounds like a hopeless scream...quite creepy. I am fine with it, but my girlfriend hates it. Everytime she hears it when I am playing the game, she would come over and turn my speakers off....too bad.

Yes, same thing happened here. The mission is "Head on". It seems to give victory to the Axis once they get their 5th flag on the 2nd turn (in my case it was the north village)

The game is not what it first appears (actually, it's rather better, technical problems aside). I suggest what it needs is a heavily linked narrated youtube video showing the flow of combat and discussing both mechanics and tactics/history in context. For example, explaining the right/left click co...

How about trying out a Operation Jubilee (Dieppe) scenario? If not the whole operation (which could be quite challenging) there were a couple Commando missions involved that would be easier to design (would love to see Lord Lovat in action, quite a story to tell there). Or maybe a mini campaign of 3...

He did, indeed. Congratulations to the First Players Tournament winner!

Sleet is a very tough and challenging opponent, and I really look forward to find him in the battlefield again.

Salute!

Actually taking a bit longer than usual since we don´t seem to ever be around at the same time. I would say we are half way thorugh it more or less.

But we will catch up, no worries.
