  1. I agree that there''s not really an alternative for a module. First of all a module/pack needs to contain new units, let's say the Finnish army of 1939/1940 or 1944. Just an example. ๐Ÿ˜› Secondly we need new buildings, trees and stuff to create the battlefield they fought on. And thirdly a couple of master maps, although that's not an absolute must. In short, yeah, practically a module. And without new scenarios and a campaign only the grognards will buy it and the pack will basically be an editor, not a game. That's the reality. Catch 22. The only solution for more products is to concentrate on one product at a time. I don't mind waiting for a couple of years for a new module, but five years is simply too much for me. But yeah, it's impossible to please everyone, no matter what you do. That will never change. But it's up to BF to find a solution and after reading all the posts I'm sure that they've learned their lessons already.
  2. That can't be denied. The truth lies usually in the middle, as with all things in life. And all that has been said in the previous posts is encouraging.
  3. Beat you to it, old boy, check the CMRT forum. But you are right, very impressive.
  4. I'm sorry, but that is such a non-argument. Announcing a game early also results in (by far the most) people being happy and looking forward to what is coming. Regular updates will encourage realism and prevent disappointment. Let's not forget that BF did raise the hope of the community by picturing a future in which base games would be followed by a whole series of modules and packs on a more or less regular base. Announcing a game in an early stage doesn't have to be a problem, as long as regular updates are provided about what can be expected and what belongs to the realm of fantasy. The radio silence of the past years has pissed more people off than the fact that it all takes a lot longer than expected. Against the time the CMRT module will be released, FIVE years will have passed (if we're lucky that is). That's what I call failure. Like Steve already mentioned lessons should be learned and another approach has to be chosen. Not because I say so. I'm just someone who thinks this world is flat. But this simply isn't working.
  5. Not on Netflix. But let me know if you find it somewhere.
  6. No, sorry, it already is released in 2017. But you can find it on Amazon. Make sure you chose the series, not the much shorter movie.
  7. I think the whole series will be released on DVD via Amazon this month.
  8. That argument has being used too many times and it not valid, als many, many people already have tried to explain over the past years. And the lack of information hasn't exactly been doing wonders for your production so far. So no, I definitely wouldn't want to keep things as they are.
  9. That part of the discussion isn't about the world being flat or not. And Steve seems to agree with more I'm saying than he cares to admit. His remarks about packs instead of modules confirm that. Personally I would prefer packs over modules, if that means we can have them on a more regular base.
  10. Now that's what I call a war movie. Makes my blood run faster. And makes me long for a Finland module more than ever.
  11. Indeed. A European company would have made other choices. But from an American point of view I understand their choices. Point is that we aren't all American. If you 'do' North Africa you HAVE to include the Brits. It was their victory.
  12. I'm sure we all agree on that. I also would love to see a Fulda Gap game, a Russian invasion of Finland or Sweden or some other possible or far fetched modern CM. Fact is that BF didn't succeed in finding a way to produce games and modules on a regular base, as they intended years ago. So something has to change. Yes, there are many WW2 games, but very few on CM scale and they don't come close to CM. Personally besides CM I only play Command Ops 2, Atlantic Fleet, Panzer Campaigns, IL-2 and some other games that are VERY different from CM. In other words, if BF isn't going to give us what we want, nobody is.
  13. I hope you're right , really. But I'm not optimistic. I think BF could do worse than starting to listen to the community more. I don't think Italy ever has been very popular among the forum members. North Africa/Tunesia would have been a better choice. In my opinion BF should concentrate more on the Eastern front. Lots of people would like to see a 1941-1942 Eastern front CM. Personally I would prefer 1943-1944. Kursk for example would be great basic game to start with. Everybody knows and loves Kursk. Lots of interesting modules are possible for the Eastern front, like the Winter war and the Finns, the Stalingrad period, Cherkassy 1944 etc. etc. Same for North Africa. They could be produced much faster, make more cash and keep everybody happy. Think more commercial, don't be too ambitious, just take the money for a well made module and move over to the next module. Ignore the perfectionists. They will never be happy. Give the modding community more to work with, a lot of these guys are so incredibly gifted and devoted, they will fill in the details for you. You've already lost too many of those guys over the years. Just my two cents, but I know that I'm not alone in my opinion. You have the best wargame ever made and still websites like Wargamer hardly ever mention you, or just post some bad screenshots. They even make jokes about your release dates. Food for thought. And last, but by no means least. Do something about your PR. Post regular information and screenshots on the forum. Keep us informed about your progress. Form a team of volunteers to post short AAR's or something. It will attract many forum members and publicity.
  14. An amazing jump? ๐Ÿคจ You guys finishing a module in less than 5 months? Don't make me laugh.
  15. Well, they don't execute you posthumous without a good reason.
  16. It does. We can all forget about a release of the CMRT module this year, but it does. Perhaps you could consider developing CM in partnership with Slitherine as well. That way we don't have to wait for modules so insanely long.
  17. Great, John, more Russian BS. They even blame the Germans for Katyn...more lies, just what we needed.
  18. Thank you. Great stuff. Really looking forward to the end of this year.
  19. Okay, false alarm, folks, false alarm. Sorry about that.
  20. Yes. please make some research, my friend. BF can be rather sneaky with regard to screenshots though. ๐Ÿ˜€
  21. Wait a minute! Wait a minute! Waffen SS, Russian soldiers with camo uniforms...Those are screenshots from the new module, aren't they?๐Ÿ˜›
  22. And please don't waste time on Rumanians or Hungarian. Just give us Finns!
