  1. Thanks, that┬┤s the news i was aiming for. After this long period of time, i had some growing doubts, if we will get a complete game at the end.
  2. Ist would be interesting to know, when we can awaite this last feature of the game?
  3. Great News, thank you! ­čÖé Gebirgsj├Ągerbattaillon 231 is back on the Battlefield. ­čĺ¬
  4. @agusto: Please keep in mind, that the Gebirgsj├Ąger are top rated light infantry troops in Germany, similar to the Fallschirmj├Ąger. These two units normally go in first in foreign countrys, when Germany nowadays sents troops into the world. Before they set a foot in such countrys, they simulate scenarios like ambushes many, many times in the 3 or 4 month rehearsel-phase before the mission starts. Most Gebirgsj├Ąger have combat experience today, because many of them were 3 or 4 times in Afghanistan. The troops 2008 were not as experenced, but would have been good enough, to know what to do
  5. After the release of CMSF2 some weeks ago, i bought the great bundle with all modules included. As a german, i┬┤m logically impatiently waiting for the reworked Nato campaigns. In the meantime i used the last few weeks for playing the US and Marines campaigns and finished both yesterday. In my opinion, these two were the best campaigns ever made by the Battlefront team. A lot more than 10 missions per campaign, little and big maps, a great variety of missions, some only platoon sized, some with many more units in it.....great stuff. For me, a well done campaign is the most important f
  6. Hello Dragonwynn, i played the 6th scenario against the Josef Stalin tanks today. A lot of fun and a really hard fight. One Josef Stalin took 13 hits in a head to head shootout at 900 m before he exploded. The only chance to survive this map is to make flanking manouvres with the Tigers to get the Stalins from the side and behind. Lost 2 Tigers and took all three winning areas. Really good stuff, congratulation. To my regret, you really frustrated me afterwards. I had to choose, if i lead a breakthrough or attack a supply depot. My ammunition was nearly at 0, so i had no choice and
  7. Only for info, i played the old original scenario.
  8. Hello Dragonwynn, i have played the 5th scenario (defence of the bridge) through and won it relativly easy. I think, there┬┤s is a great mistake in it, because the russians tanks of the attacking force along the small wooden area from south to north did not move during the whole scenario. So the scenario turned out as follows: 1. I had to fight the beginning battle with the 4 russian tanks on my marching road. After destroying them (lost 1 Tiger), i spyed some infantry in the forrest next to the destroyed tanks. I rounded up the forrest with my tanks, gave area fire and went into the woods wi
  9. @Ghost Rider 3/3 "To those that have somehow managed Total Victory... nice.. would like to know where you placed your units." I positioned in the setup zone as follows: Middle: I made a great trench behind the forrest with the Bunker and positioned one platoon and a HMG in it. I used 2 sch├╝tzenl├Âcher (dugouts), positoned the 2 Paks in it and gave them the direction to the right side of the battlefield (behind the forrest on the right side). In the first minutes, i drove the two HQ Tigers also to this position, which defended the left side of the forrest (street). When the russians
  10. Hello Dragonwynn, after playing the first four minutes of scenario 4 (Defending the bridge), i was really frustrated, because i think, you have done the setup of the troops not as accurate as you did it in the first 3 scenarios. I closed the game and will play it again. 1. As i noticed in the other 3 scenarios before, i sometime don┬┤t get it, why you spread the platoons as much and don┬┤t hold them together. 2. The setup of the Tigers has to be corrected. I was really angry about the position of the Tigers of 1 and 2 platoon together with company HQ. They are standing in line on a s
  11. Hello Dragonwynn, i played the 3. scenario (saving the artillery) on Saturday. Spoiler: I drove 4 of my Tigers from the setup zone (the street) to the left into the little woods on the map edge. From there i was able to fire into the sides of the storming russian tanks. A platoon of infantry defended the flanks of the Tigers against the russian infantry attack at this side of the battlefield. The fifth of my Tigers was setuped behind a house to cover the mainstreet of the village, if one or two T34s were able to break through the ambush zone. After killing the most tanks, i used 3 T
  12. Hello Dragonwynn, I played the 2. scenario yesterday. -Spoiler- At the beginning, I moved all my units in the northern area of the river quickly into the woods and so, as i had expected, escaped the artillery barrage into the setup zone. After that, i positioned 3 ambush areas with my infantry along the attacking roads, and reinforced this behind with the Tigers. This led to a huge "Nahkampf" battle with handgranades, Panzerfausts in the woods... great, i liked it. I was able to destroy 70 % of the russian tanks by infantry, the rest by the Tigers. Logically my very aggressive clos
  13. Hello dragonwynn, i downloaded your latest file and played the first scenario for a last time . I think it┬┤s o.k now, the feeling of chaos in the first few minutes is represented in a interesting way, on the other hand it is also fun, to setup some of the troops in the way i want it. A good mix. The two antitank guns, that could be setuped, helped a lot and the better experience level of the infantry improved the survivability of my troops. I think only a few players will solve this scenario in one run without repeating it, but that┬┤s no great problem, because the scenario is interesting
  14. In my opinion you should change not too much, because the fun factor is very high in your first scenario. The experience-upgrade of the infantry will solve the problems, because with this morale boost, the many Panzerschreck-teams on the map will not retreat before shooting, but help the Tigers in destroying the T34s. Oh... and i forgot to congratulate you for developing this interesting campaign!
  15. Hello dragonwynn, i also finished the first scenario now successful. In the first try i lost 8 Tigers, in the second 5, in the third 2, .... that┬┤s now acceptable to go on for the next mission. I agree mostly with Holien experience. The first mission is too difficult for an opening scenario of a campaign, because you have to save enough core-units for the following scenarios. That┬┤s nearly impossible without repeating the mission. On the other side i must say, that i had a lot of fun even at the third try, because of these huge challenges. As a stand-alone scenario it would be nea
