  1. I'm very excited about this new business deal. Seems like It bodes well for the future of COMBAT MISSION variants and expansions for years to come. Sincere Congratulations Battlefront!
  2. I'm very excited about this new historical model. Maybe late this year, We can hope.
  3. Um that's true but does not nullify my post. It in fact strengthens the position that the war was decided in the East. The Western Allies knew it was crucial to keep the Soviets in the war or Europe would never be liberated.
  4. We need a new Barborossa mod more than Africa. Even if there had been no second front the Soviets still would have prevailed and got to Berlin to knock out the Third Reich. As an American no amount of bias is great enough to deny this fact. The war was won in the East. Everything else was just a sideshow.
  5. I recall a game I played where a Panzer Mk IV managed to get surrounded in a little villa by Russian SMG squads. The crew bailed out and were defiantly popping away with their Walther pistols.only to be quickly cut down by a hail of ppsh fire. I wish I had recorded a movie of that. it was kind of amusing,... I think i digressed off topic.
  6. I very recently "upgraded" from an ATI 7800 series card to a NVIDIA GTX 1060 . I used to have shaders turned off or on low and also the other settings at "better" or "improved" to get good frame rates. Now I max everything . It looks great. FPS varies greatly on "Huge" scenarios or maps from high teens to 50's and higher depending on where i put the camera. But for the most part its mid 30's. Thats a big step up for me.
  7. Few companies I have seen support their games as much as Battlefront does. They have done many free patches and V4 was pretty much a game overhaul and I have not seen any other companies do that . If you have please tell. They hardly need my defense but the BF team makes quality products with a small team of people. Seems pretty amazing to me what they have been able to do. Its written in a certain book that a worker is worthy of his wages . There is only so much you can get for free, you've got to pay to play. As for the community being slow or unhealthy, that seems to be a subjective thing
  8. Fire and rubble means we get more fire and rubble damage effects? And BF has cleverly named the new module to accentuate this fact. I like that.
  9. I like the Canadians, which we already had, but I like them.
  10. Yes thanks playtesters! If it were not for them I could not be enjoying Rome to Victory right now.
  11. This is what I use. Captured many fun moments of combat.
  12. I apologize. I had replied to this thread and didn't realize it is an old thread. I want to withdraw my remarks, I dont want to make anyone mad. Thanks
  13. Very interesting video. I remember from my non-illustrious military experience, we were issued the M-16A1 in my day. We were told immediately to never carry it by the carrying handle. Thats the military for you. I dont know if it's true but my Drill Instructors told us the M-16 was based on a Mattel toy rifle. Maybe that's why it had the rather pointless carrying handle. I happen to be the proud owner of an M1 rifle I got through the CMP program. It seems to me it could have and maybe should have been used in the "ready" position, since it is semi-automatic with an 8 round clip. Also you can
  14. What if the troops were conscientious objectors? Naturally then they would be hesitant to shoot at others. Another possibility is they had very low morale, actually they were thinking about surrendering. Now I ask you. If you want to surrender you probably dont want to shoot at the troops you might be surrendering to in a few minutes. Another possibility is these men are hungry. They are saving their ammo for edible game to shoot. Humans are not a clean animal to eat, also there was not much cannibalism in WW2. There are of course more reasons why men won't shoot at the enemy troop
