  1. I believe that in this case the rail-ontext is not refering to a curtain rail but to the "tracks"-rail. In this case "Halt" is short for "Haltestelle", which you explained later. "Halte" is the plural which is used when refering to multiple stops: This train has two stops. Dieser Zug hat zwei Halte (->stellen). On german roads you are waiting if you are close to your car and don't stand still for more than three minutes. But I believe that is besides the point here. And yes, the word "Haltezeiten" does exist and is commonly used in exactly that context. Literally transla
  2. As a german native speaker I can assure you that "die halbe" means "the half". "Halte" is a word that doesn't exist. "Halt" would be the word for stop, but then the sentence wouldn't make any sense: "Die halbe" refers to "Geschwindigkeit which means speed. (Translated: "The half" "speed", "die halbe" "Geschwindigkeit"). If the writer wanted to say that the tank had to stop and obey basic german grammar instead of "Halt" he would have had to use "stehende" (standing). "For a tank there should only be two speeds: The standing (because the sentence is built so that it refers back to
  3. I sure hope they do. That's not a 24-hour ration pack, that's a breakfast. I really hope they cut out the later part of the video, otherwise I must fear for oiur allies health!
  4. The main problem I see is not that people won't be able to differentiate between gothic line and gustav line, but that both modules will be shortened to CMGL. That will cause confusion, and, I believe, lots of it. I never read enough about the italian front to find a new, fitting name. From what I remember "Operation olive" might seem appropiate. Plz no kill me 4 no grognard.
  5. I believe that politeness is key for good critiscism. The first thing to do is to never, never attack your opponent directly. Always remember: Engage the problem, not the opponent. Else you won't be able to move forward. Second: Make the other person feel understood. If you say "I believe that this and that needs improvements" and somebody else says "nope", first follow point one (don't attack) and then show them that you are on their side: IN this case, you both want to get the best out of a game. Don't say "You are a fanboy", or "F****** old breed", say "I can see where you are coming
  6. This is BFCs forum. They can do whatever they want with it, and I respect that. Their house, their rules. I'd love to have a forum where nobody needs to be the "bad guy" and lock threads, or ban people. But sometimes a discussion won't lead to anything but anger, and if that's the case I'd rather have somebody tell everyone to calm down by locking the thread, instead of watching everyone shouting. We aren't perfect, and sometimes things will go out of hand. That's normal, but it can also be a extremely unpleasant experience for everyone involved. And, I have to disagree, sometimes we A
  7. You'll find it in most of the older warsaw pact vehicles. While in the west smoke was a defensive measure in the east it was something you'd also use on the offensive: Lay down smoke to make the defender unable to shoot at your approaching tanks.
  8. If I remember correctly, the slower you go the lower the chance for you to bog is. If I see something bogging somewhere on the map I'll usually change the speed of all vehicles of the same type on the same terrain a step lower.
  9. Yes, CM moves in tiny baby steps. However, there were some improvements that I'd call "mayor". Being able to shoot at planes. Onmap mortars. If you look at the core of it, CM is a very tiny game. Extremely complex, but also, just like BFC, rather small. However, I do like that BFC seems to have found the right speed to both deliver us regular upgrades to the engine while at the same time staying in business.
  10. Pick your fights. Retreat if you have to, or you will die.
  11. This made me think about a discussion we had before release about fighting after nuclear/chemical/biological impact. Now we could just add gasmasks and suites, pull down all the stats in the editor and have a realistic WW3 experience. Imagine the possibilities!
  12. The simple reason BFC doesn't do flash sales is that it doesn'T give them anything. THe moment you regularly offer your games at a discount your costumers will start buying during those discounts- and you will have less money at the end of the day. But then, you might ask, why are there other companies that offer sales? The reason you'd want a sale is that more people who don't regularly buy your games buy it. If you watch a Steamsale you might see a game where you'd think "Yeah, I might enjoy that!", You wouldn't buy it at a regular price, but buying it at 50% off? Thats a great d
  13. The reason I relly liked FI was the unique italian landscape. Lots of hills and, maybe even more important, snow if you buy it with the Gustav Line expansion. It also seemed smaller, with less troops involved. However, if you prefer tanks over infantry and want to see tankriders and flamethrowers i'd tell you to go for RT.
  14. Yes, if I remember correctly it was brought up before. Battlefront said that it was to much work to include unless there was a major incentive, like a military contract, requiring them to implement it. Regardless of how much work it would be, it would be awesome!
  15. Wait... Are you telling me that you buy a new computer every year? We all know that DRM is an inconvenience, both for us players and the developers. But if it wouldn't work in some way developers wouldn't spend resources to aquire DRM. I never had any problems with DRM, and from what I can tell Battlefront prides themselves with their excellent customer support. Yes, it sucks not being able to download everything as much as you want. Some will prefer a system where they have to enter a key once and won't be bothered again, others like DRM plattforms like Steam which expect you to log in
