Erik, I'd like to add both Operation Varsity and Tunisia 2v2 to the community crate at some point in the future.

Would you be okay with that? Have they been tested/played with recent versions of the game?

Thanks!

I would wait with Varsity, I think I need to crop the northern part of the map quite a bit. There's some dead meat up there (not counting the casualties).

Tunisia should be ok.

Sicily too large for you?

I think that Sicily might be a touch too big, yeah.

I was interested in Varsity as it's 2vsAI, and there's not that many of that stripe on here...

Yes, we could use more humans vs AI scenarios. I'll take a long and hard look at Varsity.

I am also toying with a 2 vs (German) AI version of Market Garden. The 2v2 works ok, but play-balance is a bit German-leaning currently.
M-G is probably on your 'too big'-list, though.

Operation Varsity is one of the best scenarios. A huge map with plenty of units. When i was watching the replay of my ally movements, i feel like i was watching a war movie...

I would like to add more 2vsAI scenarios about famous conflicts of the war.

Hm, so maybe I'll do only minor fixes to Varsity then.
Thanks for the feedback.

Betio comes in 2 flavours.
I simply made a 1v1 variant of the 1vAI scenario I sent you.

2v2 Race For Tunis 1.2

Post by Erik2 » Fri Jun 26, 2020 6:55 am

2v2 Race For Tunis 1.2
Link in first post.

The old 1v1 version has been replaced by this 'new' scenario.

Changes from the ongoing beta-test:
No Free French/Vichy combat restrictions.
All FF/Vichy units start at 5 strength, zero unit exp. This means they will tak a smaller part in the battle, at least in the first half.

Sorry, Joe. I've pulled Syria as it will be used in the upcoming Free French campaign.
And I haven't cleaned up yet :oops:
