  1. In "The Cav has arrived" mission the briefing states there should be mortar support (and artillery) from the start, the mortars are not there, at least in my playthrough It is my impression that there are other instances of the briefing not being 100% correct regarding support and reinforcements, but I don't have a catalogue, it definitely deserves to be looked into, haven't seen discrepancies regarding initial force composition that I can recall Also, is it even realistic to send a light infantry company on the offensive against a MR Brigade combat group? 😁, not complaining just ask
  2. If you want newer stuff to play around then buy CMBS, if you want more readily available stuff/formations (even if you don't buy it right away) then get CMSF2, I don't know if more modules and/or scenario packs are planned for CMBS. The variety in CMSF2 has a strong appeal, it does feel different to play around with the bigger US marines platoons versus the relatively tiny 6 men platoons of the german army. I don't own any of the WWII CM games, but CMBS is said to be the more lethal environment simulated by this games, maybe coming from WWII games CMSF2 won't be such a shock. Pe
  3. I don't own any of the WWII titles so I can't comment with any detail about those, but my guess is that CMBS have more variables to play with regardless of the size of the scenarios, given the modern technologies simulated (night vision, thermals, various drones, active defense systems on some vehicles, more guided weapons to go around, etc.), otherwise CMSF2 with all its modules provides a big array of different formations, but the cost is higher with all the bundles It's true that CMBS is more unforgiving, after playing it for a while going back to CMSF2 feels much less lethal, at least
  4. As a sort of long time fan (since CMSF1 times) of CM this is good news...I think...the "Steam wars" have raged on this forums from time to time, and good reason for and against have been argued over time I sincerely hope it works, Steam does offer many conveniences to costumers and if the math works out and more people buys into the CM brand it can only benefit us all In my particular case, being from Latin America, I wonder how localized price will work (if at all), on the one hand it could entice people over outside the US to buy more titles, but certainly reduces revenue in the sh
  5. I`ve been streaming CM with Steam from a gaming PC to an iMac I use for work without issues (over a local wired network)
  6. Coming back to CM after a few years I decided to upgrade to CMSF2. It was nice to discover that owners of CMSF1 are granted a discount, sadly never bought the NATO module so I payed full price for it, and I'm having lots of fun Having been playing games since 1986, I would say CM is a good investment if you are truly into wargames and the like, there's really nothing like it that directly competes with these games Still, for me, having to deal with exchange rates from South America, it is an expensive proposition for just a "game" Don´t know if it would be profitable for Battlef
  7. Hi, thanks Just finished Semper Fi, another thing I noted is that there weren't any 81mm mortars, although they are mention at the briefings sometimes, don't remember if it was the case for SF1 too Reinforcements never arrived in last mission either (CAAT platoon IIRC)
  8. Hi, came back to CM after a long time and currently playing the Semper Fi campaign, apparently the no reinforcement issue has not been resolved as it hit me at the Flirting with Disaster mission Is it just me or is this still pending? I´m on v.2.02 Thanks
  9. May a top smoke screen be affective against drone attacks? Drones are cheaper than an air force, right? Maybe that´s the threat the system is supposed to defeat, not javelins
  10. While I´m happy that the West won the Cold War and don´t consider myself to be anti american, I`ll take a moment to comment on this from the point of view of my corner of the world, Latin America It´s true, I think, that being in the US sphere of influence is more like having a Boss than a Big Brother, it´s more about money than soul crushing servitude, but that doesn't mean there wasn't a lot of innocent blood spilled over that The US backed/supported/tolerated some of the worst butchers in history in Latin America during the 20th Century, and that has a cost, the cost is the monument
  11. Is this for real? http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/05/14/new-russian-armored-vehicle-is-controlled-using-a-playstation-controller?abthid=55541d021aca3e0f5600003e We´ll need gamepad support when the module comes up!
  12. Ok, as a (Non US) lawyer I´ll try : In the case of Armata Vs. Skeptics the Court finds as follow: - That given the complete lack of evidence to support anything resembling technical specs, the only thing we deem proven is that Armata exist...sort off - In light of the preceding ruling, on the question of who will have custody until majority of age, the Court awards it to LockandLoad because he cares about it the most - The previous decision notwhistanding Steve is allow visitation rights to check on it from time to time and keep it honest on the question of future module inclu
  13. If the turret is really so thin, wouldn´t it contradict the super-duper capsule to protect the crew? Sure, it will always make sense to the crew, but if your vehicle can´t prevent a weapon kill from a HMG, it´s not a tank, won´t be used as a tank and so, it doesn't need so much crew protection It must be a place holder if what the pics show is really that thin
  14. Well, the problem with arguing that Russia doesn't have the commitments the US has and that the US doesn't plan for defense of it´s soil as separate problems is that the lesson that everybody extracts is: if you don´t want to plan for homeland defense go and build a global empire/presence...as the US...and as the UK did before...all the way back to the Romans And for the insurance for NATO partners I recommend to call it the "Pre Paid Event Triggered Strategic Commitment"
  15. I think that the T-14 turret is missing a couple of Lego pieces... But they look good to me, may the aesthetics balance be shifting?
