    Well, as interesting as it might be to argue about how may angles can fit on the point of a pin, the Sturmtiger is still not going into F&R.

    After all, this isn't War Thunder.  Otherwise we would have the Dicker Max...

    It just occurred to me reading this thread that it may not be obvious to non-grogs that a Schwimmwagen is an amphibious vehicle that can cross a river without a ford or bridge. 

    It has "swim" right in the tile. :)

    what is the decision process to be "assured"? sounds like a risky and difficult decision to make.

    Would a pre-order scheme give them an idea?  I am willing to tie up money for that.  Or some kind of funding scheme.

    You both appear to be new to the forum, so you may not have seen how unpleasant these political arguments can get.

    Indeed.  I have been here for 22 years and seen this same argument a million times.  Always ends the same way...with the release of a new module!

    Hazy memory on this one but IIRC, you've said in the past nationalities probably play a part in base game sales numbers particularly in the US where they seem to favour playing a game with their own country being present.

    PanzerBlitz was very, very popular.  Insanely popular at the time.   I much preferred it to Panzer Leader too - as did most people I think.

    They just need to join the CM Discord and check the title ownership poll there... The ratio of CMSF2 owners over RT owners is 3:1, the ratio of CMBN owners over RT owners is about 2:1, with near parity with every other title (but Afghanistan, the hipster title). I was surprised that CMFB wasn't as popular as CMBN.

    What's the name of the server?  I searched Combat Mission and nothing came up...

    And for what it's worth, if there was any other theater I would have picked aside from Russian front, it would be Italian front. That's almost never done and it did sound extremely interesting when word first came out. Normandy is great, but the idea of moving to Italy/Sicily was even more interesting than North Africa. My personal opinion.

    Would you pick Italy over Russia?

    And based on sales figures, our customers wanted us to do it as well.  

    To be fair Steve, we buy everything you guys put out.  I bought all of the FI stuff, even though I'm not that interested in that theater.  But I thought it would help keeping you going and you would some day be able to do Barbarossa. I can see now that that ain't going to happen... 

  9. I agree with everything you said.  But you aren't addressing the points I raised.  Namely, absent FI we would have all of RT right now.  BFC "prioritized" FI over RT based on the input of one person.  Was there anyone on this board clamoring for FI over RT?  Was there anyone within BFC who wanted FI over RT?  Steve has said on several occasions that he is an east front guy and even he couldn't get what he wanted.

    I just wish they would have let us know there was bidding war for modules to let us put together a package...

    Did I miss something? CM Fortress Italy was initiated by a private guy, who payed for the development ???

    Yes.  Now, if he had paid for the development of RT and all of it's modules we wouldn't be having these arguments.  I would be playing Barbarossa right now!  Instead of on my deathbed...
