City / Snow

There is a bug with cities not absorbing hits for the Germans during snow turns. The Germans are supposed to lose the terrain benefits of forest during frost and snow turns, but according to the rules, cities are unaffected and should absorb two hits. But I'm being attacked by the Russians, and the ...

Unit differentiation?

Okay, maybe this is just me having the problem, but why in the world were the same color schemes used for the units of both sides? My cavalry are blue, enemy cavalry are blue. My infantry are red, enemy infantry is also red. Does no one notice the problem that this causes in recognizing at a glance ...

Re: Dead AT gun still showing

Having a similar problem in Gold. Took all objectives, used March capability, and lost the game because there was one German infantry unit sitting in the hills (far northeast) that was invisible or something, I couldn't attack it and it wouldn't attack me! So i couldn't kill all the units, can't pro...

Re: Another rating reset???

Same here. After dropping from rank #8 to tank #10,035, I had worked my way back aup to the 1600s when wham, back down to 1500. Third time, actually. It gets worse. I had a game that got hit by the move freeze bug on T-21. As if that wasn't bad enough -- it was a close game, and neither my opponent ...

Re: Long games?

The other aspect of the CW no refit approach is that it also tends to discourage Good, Rommelesque axis offensive play. If the Axis player is reasonably sure that his oppoenent tends to keep playing through, and that he can expect one or maybe no reifts, then when the supply runs out it may be gone ...

Re: Rating reset?????

I went from ranking #8 to #10,035 overnight. They restored all my turns played but kept the rating reset at 1500. That's 8 months of hard play down the toilet, can't say I'm too happy about it. This just makes a whole mockery of the idea of even having ratings. Some of the top ten players retained t...

Re: Long games?

Although all in all, I have to wonder why Shenandoah went with El Alamein (which was an attritional grind) instead of something like Kasserine Pass, which was pretty much Bulge in north Africa.

Re: Long games?

I'm not arguing that the CW no-refit strategy doesn't work, only that it results in very long games which are, as you said, attritional grinds. Can't say that's a lot of fun to play as the Axis. Ruweisat scenario is the most enjoyable, I think.

Re: Rating reset?????

My rating was restored once, but now it's back at 1500 again, though turns played is correct.

Same problem over at Desert Fox, no?

Re: Long games?

I have yet to get to the end of a campaign due to the length, most players drop out before getting close, and I have two in progress that are still nowhere near conclusion.

Re: Game Center often losing connection when playing turn

Ditto.

Turns not being sent and jamming the game in a loop are also a major issue. Having to delete the app and reboot several times a week.

Long games?

I know some people complained about DoM being a long game but it never bothered me. This one, though, since purchasing it, I have yet to finish a single campaign. At a couple of moves a day, it just goes on forever. The culprit seems to be the week end mechanic. Most CW players seem to have not read...

Re: Unable to end my turn

Just to add: these errors often arise with the "turn could not be sent, will be saved and sent later" message. But they never seem to get sent, it just becomes a loop of the same move over and over again every time you open the game, and the opponent never gets it...

Re: Unable to end my turn

I gott say, this is no longer a "rare" problem. I am getting this in about every other game now. For the past two months now, i have had to delete and re-install DoM two or three times a week just to keep playing, sometimes within the same game. I have had two opponents for whom even that didn't wor...
