I have not yet managed the last battle in either the desert campaign or the normandy campaign.

Time is the problem in the desert battle, move fast.

Looking at the squads file I wouldn't say there were any glaring errors. Personally I would increase the effective frontal armour of the panther and Tiger 1 by an additional 10, though how much difference that would make to their survivability I am not sure. I would say the Panther in particular sho...

I've noticed that too. Little stuarts seem harder to kill than tigers....

I am presuming someone has made a mistake in the code somewhere???

Be very careful about implementing force pools for multi-player. I don't disagree that it would add variety to the game, but too much freedom will lead to complaints about unrealistic forces and will open up opportunities for exploits. The same thing was done in CC5 multiplayer and I saw people fie...

Don't really care about random maps, there are already maps and you can easily make your own additional ones. Not even that keen on command and control, just extra levels of detail I don't need to enjoy the game. Some kind of dynamic campaign, and ability to have troop selection and deployment in mu...

Are you suggesting that the "Dynamite" is NOT used to assault tanks? or is it used for tanks and buildings? I thought the later but not sure. I don't really need the mathematical formula for calculating armour penetration. But it would be interesting to know for example whether they include hull fac...

But they can be fooled.
At least it's better than FOG.
A LOT better than FoG!!

I haven't bothered to play the latest patch though, I have heard claims the AI has improved?

Rules that are not in the Manual?

It appears this excellent game has a very brief manual. I have been trying to work out what things mean and would love to have people post bits they have uncovered themselves, or they have heard from others. I noticed some infantry have little packs of dynamite, this appears to be the number of tank...

Surprised by this game

Must say I just bought this game and am really impressed. I love the "feel" of the game, it feels a like a cross between a miniatures game such as flames of war, and a commando comic book. Brilliant! I have field of glory which is ok but i only get to play it single player and the ai is really dumb....
