Not wanting to shoot the messenger but I would have thought the more than a single test case would be used to verify fitness. Were any of the save games provided not used for verification?
No one has stated that this issue should be completely eliminated. We just want it to be uncommon if not rare. War stories are made of such rare occurrences and something we all appreciate of the game.
Being able to see teams cycling to and fro towards danger more often than not - does not make for a good game experience IMHO.
I don't see the point of applying this patch until the overarching 'evade' issue is addressed.
While I am appointed, I'm encouraged by the timely response.
I believe he did and he has a perspective on it. I may disagree with it, but I think his answer to the follow up helps me understand his answer a bit better. Nothing seems to grab his attention for long. He may feel something akin to what I was trying to express, but it doesn't last.
No offense meant to Thewood1, but I pity him. I wouldn't trade that wonderful exciting chill for anything. Life is short, it should be full of stuff like that.
Like my wife, I am amazed she married me and I hope I never lose that and take her for granted.
My father passed away from Alzheimer related issues this year. As his memory went he began forgetting things, he lost his sense of taste, he began to lose track of individuals and he eventually forgot how to eat.
One thing that experience reinforced for me is appreciating everything you have while you can. CM with all it's issues and all the features missing I would love to see it have, is still an incredible game. There is simply nothing comparable in it's genre. And it's genre is my favorite.
Sure the first time I tried Skyrim and I stood on a mountain looking out over a river valley with an amazing huge moon overhead, I was impressed. And then I basically walked over the side of the mountain and slithered all the way down into the valley and when I got to the bottom a mammoth popped up several hundred feet into the air... a mammoth I could not even see 5 feet further away. Okay cool game, cool graphics, no immersion. For me anyway. Another player could come along, mod the hell out of it and it is everything they ever dreamed of.
FP shooters just make me think, great visuals for a game of paintball. Some of the ARMA 3 hardcore teams look pretty neat, but again it just doesn't translate for me to what I want to play.
CMx2 fills a spot for me and does so better than anything I'd ever hoped. I pray I never lose my appreciation for that. It would be a sad statement on me.
I am a bit OCD in real life, silly things like making sure the TV volume is on an even number and not an odd one...
Last night I was playing the red hordes scenario in red thunder, I had a AT gun in the village nearest the river in a position to fire into the flank of any T-34 coming up the road, but before they could get any shots off all but 2 of the crew where killed by a Soviet smg squad...
A minute or two later the remaining crew recovered and on there own killed 4 T-34s..
I think this kind of situation is what makes CM special, through chaos , misfortune and heroism a realistic narrative is built in the mind of the player :-)
