    Russia openly attacks Ukraine for the first time under its own flag.
    The next day VTB, the 2nd biggest russian bank is on a verge of bankruptcy, having just lost $12 bln into the unknown void.
    Just a coincidence, as any other such coincidence for the past 5 years. Just sayin'
    Keep calm and blame Ukraine for the things you do - it always works.

    Sorry, but releasing your game with half the portraits and flags missing of countries that are already there and then charging money to have them back is BS. Especially since portraits are randomly generated by the code that is there too and you pay for a simple unlock. At one point they had like 12 DLCs to just allow you not to stare at a black silhouette of a face.
    And let's not forget about the glorious preorder content getting cut for people who dared not to buy the game before it's released.

    The bitter bit for me here is a realization that CMBS module isn't happening before 2020

    kraze got a reaction from Rinaldi in How accurate *is* CMBS?   
    Yes if by "tribal/PMC raid party" you mean professional russian soldiers armed with modern tanks and large caliber arty and yes 0 casualties for US.

    TBH after the 200+ : 0 outcome of that battle of US vs. russian troops in Syria this February I have to say CMBS is probably not accurate enough

    kraze reacted to TimUA in Area target question   
    I would rather reask this quistion this way: is it possible to target different action spots in the same turn?
    Yes, it is possible, at least for infantry(not support weapons). Do next: 
    1. Give move order to the tile where you want to shoot from initally
    2. then give target order from this waypoint to the aimed area 
    3. then set the pause, to let your unit shoot during this pause
    4. then plot another move order to anywhere else.
    5 DRAG and DROP the second waypoint on the same tile where 1st waypoint located. The 1st waypoint will look like pyramide, the 2nd one will look like a ball.
    6. Choose the 2nd waypoint(the ball) and give target (or target light) order to another direction.

    This way your infantry will move to the 1st point, then shoot 1st aim during the pause you've set, then switch to another aim and shoot at it WITHIN one turn.

    US has been supplying Red Army with ammunition, tanks and trucks since june 22 1941. In fact every second bullet fired by the soviets has been of american make. And all the supplies moved here and there were almost exclusively by american trucks. If not for this and Germans being so tied down in 3 other theaters - it would've been a short fight for USSR. War is not just shooting - it's also about logistics. As US has shown in its direct involvement in the war from 1941 till 1945 - logistics reduce casualties greatly, while defeating a superior force (like Japan, which outright ruled the sea military-brute-force-wise). Now compare that to 27 mln soviet losses (or 42 mln according to current russian officials) - germans just got stuck in dead bodies.

    It also "bled to death" in Europe (if only having to keep there a huge standing army to fight partisanen and ever-looming invasion), Africa and Italy but let's just ignore those unimportant theaters in favor of lend-leased Red Army

    kraze got a reaction from roflcakes in Best CM Game?   
    The correct question is 'which CM is better in WW2 and Modern era" since they play quite differently.
    Can't say much about the WW2 since I own only CMBN (although Big Bundle is richest of all content-wise atm) - but for modern era it's CMBS hands down. CMSF and CM Afghanistan have their quirks and character and the former is just pure content porn - but gameplay- and difficulty-wise Black Sea is where it's at.

    You spend the last 4 years (especially) talking BS about the US and boasting about immortality and invulnerability of your own troops.

    While having to bring the camera down to the ground level every time to check which position will give a good LOS is a PITA - it is certainly very representative of what your troops will see.
    Rain, fog, mist, low-light conditions and simply a prone stance of troops can cause this. In fact rain and fog heavily degrade thermal optics.

    THAT'S nothing.
    Spending time rewinding a tape to find a correct gap - then loading games and software for 4 minutes only to get a random tape read error and start all over again.

    kraze got a reaction from General Jack Ripper in Try doing this in ANY WW II CMx2 game   
    In CMBS I've managed to whack nearly a dozen BMPs and several tanks with a Ukrainian ATG hidden in the woods - and it survived the battle - so it's definitely possible.
    Yeah OK not a WW2 title - but hey - modern era optics and target acquisition make hiding something a lot harder.
