    CMSF2 Release Update

    Thanks for the update, appreciated
  2. maybe i worded it wrong. what i was meaning to say was this. BF are hard at work, i assume, trying to complete the game, in order that it may become available for them to sell to us for profit. Whilst carrying out that work, you notice that there are disgruntled posts on the forum about finnish dates, lack of communication etc. do you :- a) take 5 minutes out of your work to post a reassuring explanation, keep your customers happy and onside, and get back to work? or b) completely ignore any posts and let customers argue back and fore against or in support of BF? both options could, i have no basis on that your correct, affect sales and your business PR. Option a) can surely only have a positive outcome, whilst that of b) is negative. Is it worth 5 minutes of time to give your business a positive boost? I would say yes. p.s i took 5 mins out of my day to post this
  3. I don't want to get into a tit-for-tat argument. Maybe i am missing something obvious, if so excuse me, but i can see no mention of a release date on the store page re-read my post a few times, and i still can't see where i said that either. My gripe is simply down to what i believe is piss poor customer communication for a $120.00 (discounted mind!) full game. No other issues
  4. Yes you can guess all you want, if you like mate. But you won't find out. Which is kind of the point some are trying to make. It's not about enlightenment, its about common, decent, customer care. That's all. One post every month or similar would pay massive dividends in the long run, and do more for sales than the 5 minutes lost working on the game to post it ever would.
  5. Totally agree. Its not the first time this issue has been raised. Its nothing to do with when the game/patches or whatever actually get released. Its just down to the total lack of communication between customer and business. If you want people to pay good money for something you are supplying, then good business sense suggests you should, at the very least, have some dialogue.

    Lend-Lease stuff coming soon?

    re-reading my post you are right it does seem a little harsh, but the point i was trying to make is if your the business owner and enough of your customers are making waves over basically the same thing, information, then are we wrong for asking for it? Or are they wrong for not giving it. It could not have taken to long to write that, and it makes everyone happier. Thanks benpark for the update.

    Lend-Lease stuff coming soon?

    Exactly Aragorn, with fewer people active and less mods coming out battlefront should be trying to retain their customer base and attract new members, especially as to own all titles is fairly expensive to most of us. Unfortunately it seems battlefront no longer listens to their customers and will just continue to do as they will, with little or no regard for the paying public. It makes me sad, is this is by far the best wargame out there, and could be so much more.

    The patch?

    I totally agree with some of the posts above, taking all things into consideration it surely would not hurt battlefront to just post a quick update once a month or something similar. It would not take a lot of time and would do countless good for their customer relations. At the moment it all seems a bit one sided, battlefront hold all the cards and we, the customer just have to wait until they deem necessary for any updates etc, in my opinion that is not how a company should behave in this day and age, it should be a two-way street of input/output so that customer and provider feel they are both benefiting in some way. Add into this the changed AI behavior that has made many scenarios/campaigns unplayable, and therefore the reluctance of users to create more content until this is fixed. All of these things add up to put battlefront in a poor light, with time users will grow tired and look elsewhere, and that would be a shame for all of us. All we are asking for is a little communication! regards and hopeful, slipper

    Normandy maps

    Thanks for your replies. Ian Dalglishs' book is one i have, and is really good, but also one of the books i am struggling with, as i have to keep cross referencing to see where in the bigger picture each small battle occurs. There is an overview map on p.10-11 which is the sort of map with detail i am looking for, if i could find a larger version of that map it would be ideal. I have a few of the atlas style books, and they are a little to large (fussy git aren't i :)). Something about 1:25000 scale or larger, but not a modern map. thanks again for your suggestions.
  15. I'm catching up on a few books related to operations in Normandy, mainly in the British sector such as Epsom, Bluecoat, Goodwood etc.I must admit to getting a bit bogged down when it comes to visualising where villages and descriptions of actions fit into the overall picture. Therefore i am looking for a good map or maps of the Normandy area that has good detail and is representative of the area at this time, any one have any suggestions please? Checked out some modern maps, but with developments such as new roads, railways and bulidings they are not that good. Searched online but have not really found anything suitable. Any help appreciated. slipper
