Piatek will hopefully prove to be a most delightful defensive scenario.ruskicanuk wrote:Love it - the more you can offer varied mission objectives (rather than the classic race as fast as you can to capture these 4 cities), as well as defensive missions, the better.
The topic of varied missions objectives is tricky, but I think we've come up with a very good solution. Many missions do have special objectives that require a player to complete in order to achieve decisive victory. However we also acknowledge that this concept may not appeal to everyone, so players who wish to just play the victory grabbing game may do so and will not be unduly punished for it.
Here's just one example that illustrates this concept.
Bonus points for anyone who can figure out which scenario these objectives belong too. Give you a hint, it's historically based.
By the way, take note how the date on the scenario is May 19th, and historically Giraud was captured on May 19th. We went through a lot of history books, yes actual books not just wikipedia pages, to come up with content that is both fun but very true to history as well.While trying to block a German attack through the Ardennes, he was captured by German troops at Wassigny on 19 May.
