April 4th

Post by boerkameel » Wed Apr 04, 2012 6:30 pm

I'm hosting a game right now.
Will be doing something in the background, so might be a minute before I see someone joining - but I'll be there, no sweat!

I'm going for another singleplayer round. If anyone's up for a game, please post here and I'll be glad to host/join.

If you have time for another match tomorrow I might even have managed to create a force that actually fights and doesn't run away.

I've had the same happen to me while fighting Xerkis, quite frustrating... I was starting to understand why the Russians shot everyone running "the wrong way"!
As you said, I also find smaller specialized "task forces" easier to handle then large groups. Only downside is they get bigger morale penalties while losing a comrade. Except if they're War Veterans (but still).

Might be a bit later tomorrow, but I'd love a rematch!

*edit* during the game I was referring to Patton's "reconnaissance by fire" tactic.

I'm available again for a game, if anyone's willing.

Isn't it about 17h in west USA? Hoping Xerkis is available later, been looking forward to that rematch as well :)

I just might be around for a game or two….. I would like to try some different versions of it though. some designed for short, fast pace type. (Just as a heads up if you want to “adjust” your forces.)

I've been tweaking a 'main' force, with 3 squads for generic roles, and 2 squads for specific maps (short/long range). I may break them up in a force for each map specifically, but not there yet :)

Fast pace is OK for me, I'm not going to be on long any more anyway. It's 1AM here.

The game counted down, then I was still in the lobby; the map did not load.
I could not "leave" or start skirmish, had to close the game.

Shall I try to create the same settings?

Heh I recognize that, built this PC with 8GB ram just for that reason.

That was a nice round! A last one? I'm off to bed after that.
