  1. I am so looking forward to taking on some Russians with my brave British. Oh. Well them yanks will suffice for now!
  2. I too would quite like to know why we can't pre-order digital only editions? This is purely a budgeting concern on my part! I like to gift myself present for the future when I have cash to spare.
  3. They do it every time there is a new release hehe
  4. One can always hope that in the future Battlefront will be able to have invested in a more complicated pixeltruppen ai, more detailed maps (that aren't too performance heavy) and more animations. We can also hope for world peace.
  5. If someone would deign to throw in another info dump we would appreciate it! I am grateful for the amount of information you have already given in regards to a release date.
  6. Stagler UO uses your mod as part of their modset haha
  7. Continuing the naughty yet entertaining off-topic discussion.. I love Arma 3, but I really dislike the Vanilla setting and therefore campaign etc. The very best experiences in Arma 3 come from playing it online with a group of folk who play it tactically. The game is so powerful (similar to CM in terms of their seriousness) that small-unit tactics work in their engine. Fireteam bounding keeps you alive whereas blind charges will fill you with holes. I have quite a few videos of playing the Arma series with a group called United Operations, they are an open community that tries to promote realism. This video is where I am leading a severely under strength platoon in an ill fated assault on an enemy fortified position https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoHQ5yleOaU Everyone on my side is a player, against computer controlled enemies. There were about 15-20 of us if I remember correctly. The server currently peaks at about 70 players on a friday. I apologize in advance for my lack of knowledge and skill.
  8. I have this vision of an epic campaign wherein a platoon minus of SAS recon units are stuck behind enemy lines trying to survive and make their way back to friendlies while an armored friendly push into the area to rescue them is conducted. Switching between a micro "escape" style mission using sneaky tactics and generally trying to stay alive and onto a grand mass assault into enemy front lines and back would be very cool.
  9. Military folk really are not good with names are they?
  10. Yeah I totally just did this but the camera, er, broke and so you will just have to trust me. Game please.
  11. Just because you do not understand their position does not mean their position is in any way wrong. If Battlefront did go on steam I for one would hope that they kept their own store online for people such has yourself who would prefer not to be on steam. In terms of my own humble opinion (and here I mean that as I will only be giving my own certain knowledge) I won't try to make a judgement on whether or not steam will increase Battlefront's revenue. I as a customer would very much appreciate the ability to have all of my combat mission games on steam, auto-updating with easy access to mods and a nice hub for community. Maybe even support for a more fully realized multiplayer. The ability to review the games on a platform of millions is also helpful, and I would be giving extremely positive ones at that. Simply put for my own very selfish reasons I would urge Battlefront to keep considering this as an option, even if it is just to keep folk like me happy. For those mumbling and grumbling about "back in my day we used to write code to open applications" and "wow you are so lazy with your auto-updates what is the world coming to" you need to get a grip. Less time having to edit my games means more time to actually play them, see my friends, work and or better yet create something myself. It is not lazy to prefer not having to do these tasks, it is very much in human nature and I guarantee you will struggle to find many outside of your own age group who agree with you. I worry that when I get old, experienced and wise I will become stuck in my ways but never before have I seen a community so rigidly sticking to its ways. Though to be fair that is also precisely the reason I enjoy interacting here so much, the general level of respect and humor is usually ace. Aside from the rather pitiful showing in this thread so far. @Steve The fact that this thread is shown in the"ye olde wargaming" section of a games news website reputed to be more old fashioned in their approach to media shows that this subject is of special interest to a large group of people. There is definitely a call for this, is it time to go and do a little more research?
