Most kills with a Tiger?

Wow, Mr Whittman, welcome to the world of PBEM. A word of warning: playing humans can ruin AI for you. Since getting into playing 'HI' I just can't be bothered with AI in almost any game. OTOH playing humans gives this game almost infinite replayability. I still have times where my heart pumps waiting to see if a risky move pays off.

Better late than never eh? ;)

I could also challenge someone to a duel to the death!, though as it will be my first time ever to be playing a PBEM I will probably need guiding, so anyone want to engage in lethal conflict or is it white flag already?

Wittman and I are starting a game, I try to limit myself to a certain number of games at a time, so I am afraid I cannot take on another.

But I am sure there are others willing to help a rookie into PBEM, and if you are lucky, someone that will not take advantage of the situation.

Hi all,

A couple of days ago I just finished Rune's late war scenario Royal Opponent. If you want to play with some big cats then this is the battle for you! On the Axis side you get no less than 11 KT to play with and on the Allied side at least a dozen IS-2.

I got a 'major victory' against the AI but as always I felt this was only because of his usual inept play. He did give me a nasty surprise at the end and with 4 KT lost or abandoned and 4 others immobilized I believe the AI definitely had the edge if the battle had have continued.

Still those Kings sure are beasts and fun to play with! :D

Yeah, I've played that vs the AI. A lot of fun.

Hey MW, how's your PBEM going? Did you get it started?

Looks like the wheels have fallen off Axel's bravado as he is yet to answer my challenge.

The people who will give you the biggest kicking are scenario designers. The know the points value and mathematical chances of everything.

Quite takes the romance out of it!

Lol. I've made some scenarios for myself against the AI. Lets just say they are a little uninspiring.

I'll will send you a setup tomorrow. It will probably be a QB unless I find an interesting scenario I haven't played yet.

Good job, MW, your thread increased the amount of communication in this world by a measurable amount. I received a file from Cuirassier, and have sent it back. I'm just waiting for the next move.

Axel what do you mean "ignite"? Are you still looking for a game? I've been trying to find someone to play PanzerBlitz #7 with. It is at TSD2. Take a look at it and if you want to play send me an email. I did not design it and I haven't played it. I have looked at it in the editor so feel free to look and see if it interests you. Have fun, Von Schwendeman

Er has anyone ever seen a strange bug in CM where all your men look like stickmen (standing bolt upright) and then when you hide/unhide them they go back to normal except for accelerated head swivels. And no my men haven't been taking speed LOL.

I just received a file in my PBEM vs slysniper where this was taking place when I was setting up a turn. :confused:

You mean to say Siv that this bug made it through to the new game with a different engine as well? Oh dear I wonder if it was deliberately left in there. Rebooting the PC seems the only way to fix this annoying little quirk. It doesn't happen too often though.

MichaelWittman is now starting the learning curve of playing against a Human,one that he is not use to playing either. Its very early in the Battle, but he has had his first big mishap.

he can share if he would like.

I am also suprised by running into enemy infantry units pretty far from his objectives, either he has a ton of infantry or I have taken him for granted that he would deploy so far from flags. But with the amount of units and the initial deployment locations, this battle could turn into a crazy shot out, with not much of what one would call a formal battle line.
