  1. Looking for a H2H non-meeting scenario with preferably limited bocage and a mobile defense. Any recommendations for base game, MG or CW?
  2. I recently finished up Abbay D' Authie, a scenario which is billed as being H2H. To me, the Allies clearly have an advantage here as they get a location bonus from the start by being so close to one of the VLs, making it resemble more of an Axis probe. However...what the Germs lack in location to VLs is made up somewhat by the terrain advantage they get by starting at a higher altitude and having a nearly complete view of the Allied side of the board. A smart player will know how to take advantage of this benefit with the forces given to him making it easier to grab control of the needed VL on the other side of the map. Or...you can simply fight for the remaining VL in the middle and hope to inflict more casualties than your opponent. The caveat here is that the Allies have better ways to defend the location vs the Germs and a stalemate is almost sure to be the result unless the Germs at some point decide to go on the offensive. I do recommend the scenario though. Just make sure to have the weaker player as the Allies and I think things will balance themselves out.
  3. I'm curious as to how many smoke rounds are available per tank in CM Normandy and if it differs per tank.
  4. The Opponent Finder forum is a ghost town so I'm posting this here. I'm a long time player of CM but I don't play that regularly. Looking for an opponent of intermediate skill level for PBEM play in a MG scenario. I prefer small to medium sized battles that are a good mix of infantry and tanks which also allow some cover. It would also be nice to find an opponent that offers some small conversation over email instead of just sending back the file. PM me if interested.
  5. Has anyone else noticed if the user-made scenarios for MG like those found on The Few Good Men have less bocage than those from the base game or Commonwealth? It's almost like a conspiracy between designers to use maps as flat as Texas while overloading each scenario with bocage. I'd really like to find some good H2H ones for MG that are more hilly without the bocage overload.
  6. MG would make a good Christmas present for me as I never bothered buying it (still haven't gotten bored of Base Game + Commonwealth). However, I was wondering what the main additions are with the game over the other two I mentioned. One of the things I was hoping for was scenarios which don't have bocage. I've found it really hard to find player-made scenarios on the fan sites which don't use this stuff for Normandy. Other than that, I'd like to hear if there were any major additions to this add-on that I might've missed.
  7. We need 6 players for our Yahoo MLB Fantasy League this year with a $40 buy-in. We play a standard 5x5 H2H league with 3 bench players, 5 DL spots, and 1 NA. Let me know if you're interested.
  8. I'm watching this now for the first time and I'm already put off by one of the scenes. They've just finished killing off the AT guns by the tree line and then want to execute the German soldier...oh wait...I meant Nazi...cause every German is an evil Nazi in these films. So not only do we have this ridiculousness, but I'm supposed to identify with American soldiers who want to illegally kill this unarmed prisoner. WTF? It's sick how the men who run the Hollywood studios try to get the public to believe these lies against the German people. Do you think that if this movie took place in the Pacific, they'd have our heroes executing a Japanese POW? Doubtful.
  9. I agree completely because you get to see every little detail during the action phase. If you're fighting the enemy in 2 different areas on the map, think about all that you miss playing real time. In fact, I've never played a real-time game (although I should probably try it at least once.) Then again, I look at this game as a version of chess. I'm fine with whatever happens after my move because I don't treat the game like it's a 100% simulation.
  10. I'm surprised that someone hasn't created a Wiki or something which goes into explanation of all the units and equipment of this game. For me personally, I'm interested in finding out the armor thickness of AFVs and gun penetration data in Combat Mission since we now no longer have this info on the dashboard. Is there a mod or anything available to use that gives this info?
  11. I just tried using a tank with a 75mm gun to take out a low wall and even that HE round would not destroy the wall on a direct hit. Surely these HE rounds would take out that structure, right?
  12. I guess I just thought grenades were more powerful. This was just a low stone wall I was trying to take out. So what is mixed with those stones to create these structures?
  13. I tried using grenades to remove some friendly walls, but nothing happened. You'd think that something that powerful would leave concrete in rubble.
  14. So what is the difference then between firing say...4 guns with a medium ROF vs 2 guns with heavy ROF?
