    This is the most important statement that has been said in weeks. For all those that want to see the glass half empty. None of you want to see the glass as to how it is overflowing in that none of those other companies or games does this. None What I like about Steve is he has a view of how things should be and he goes on the path that he believes he should follow and he does not allow himself to get diverted off the path by the peanut gallery that think they can proclaim themselves as experts and try to push their own views. Also, I do recall many a quick update release of fix

    @dbsapp has a point: which is that the Red Army has been very often depicted in very unfair ways. If the same standard would have been applied uniformly across WW2 combatants... which is now starting to be the case. A good recent book which I recommend everyone here reading is David Stahel's "Retreat from Moscow" which takes a 360 degrees view of one of they key campaigns of the Eastern Front: that of the Red Army counteroffensives in the winter of 1941 and 1942. There are many things to take home from that book, but one that struck me deeply and is 100% relevant to this thread was the an

    Exactly. And not all that long ago a major (some would say game-breaking) bug took over a year to be patched. Maybe that works for the developer and testers, but it didn't really work that well for me as the customer. Other bugs which have existed for years (like the bridge bug, and team-members-refusing-to-move) still pop up much too frequently.

    I know what you mean. But, here's some inside ball: you've heard all the "gotta test to make sure a 'fix' doesn't break something else", right? My contribution to CW is very small compared to the incredible work that others have done. But, here's a sample of what I put into this. There was a question about spotting. (This is the type of observed behavior followed by rigorous testing that discovered the infamous Tiger gunner sitting sideways issue.) In order to dig into the particular issue in CW, I created some tests. In the course of these, I entered, individually and by hand, 13,50

    But isn't that part of the game? Should developers not fix bug? I dread seeing a bug in any CM game mainly because I know its months/years away from being fixed. There are software and software game companies that are the same size as BFC with just as complex delivery systems that have a steady stream of patches and fixes going on.

    A very, very long time ago I made a video about that Burning Bunkers mission. It doesn't show half the battle but it showed my big final human wave infantry assault. My infantry got quite a few kills in there. We are the Soviets here, comrade. We don't have time for any silly bourgeois niceties like "tactics" or "finesse". We just have to throw ourselves at them. The courage and indomitable spirit of the working class shall always prevail!

  11. The above unit, in game: In Quick Battle terms that's fairly expensive - it costs about as much as two US Infantry squads without transport, but that's mostly the extra premium you get for hiring the Technical and Pickup groups. You can't buy individual Pickups or Technicals to add to the formation, so the correct approach would be to buy this for the entire force and then parcel them out, rather than buy the formation and pare it down - you pay the extra cost anyway, so you may as well buy more. Typical soft factors are Conscript/Green experience, with Extreme or Fanatic motivation.

  12. Yeah, hybrid warfare is something which CMSF can do well, but Quick Battles can't. There's no need for the networks to be spy-spy of course, so hybrid C2 would look something like this:
