  1. Yes funny enough despite facing Tigers and Panthers, the German casemates have been giving me a lot more trouble. I will be filing a complaint that they should be made illegal under the Geneva convention.
  2. Nice pics. I just got to the mission you're on. Does look like it might be tricky because the germans do have some nice long range weapons, and the bulk of your tank force are 75 shermans.
  3. I’d suggest reading this post Or this one Knowing both of these people they are way too invested in the game and so I trust them when they explain why this isn’t an issue.
  4. I think you touch on some legitimate issues, but then you include stuff like this, which is not an issue, so it ends up detracting from the actual legitimate issues you mention.
  5. It uses "channels" rather than threads. So you can just go into whatever channel you want and talk at any time, no need to create a thread. As a result, they tend to be more active. Also from a purely combat mission perspective, the userbase for a discord will skew younger than the forums, so that changes things a bit.
  6. Hitler visits the front and talks to a soldier. Hitler asks: "Friend, when you are in the front line under artillery fire, what do you wish for?" The soldier replies: "That you, my Fuhrer, stand next to me!"
  7. I'll ask you since you seem knowledgeable on WW2. Who assassinated Patton (assuming you believe that theory over the more credible and historically supported spirit theory).
  8. The delay to Barbarossa was due in large part to the need to expand infrastructure in western Poland for the invasion, which was taking longer than necessary. Likewise, the spring thaw had come late and rivers were still swollen. Even accounting for all that, historians generally view the delay as ultimately being of little real consequence in the grand scheme of things.
  9. 1) No, Yugoslavia wasn’t the reason it was delayed contrary to public myth. 2) No, it both requires the Germans to act completely differently and drastically overrates how anti-Soviet most people were. 3) Seems irrelevant. 4) Going for Moscow first was sensible. Driving into the caucuses while leaving large parts of central Russia unsubdued would be impossible. Now back to warrior spirits and Patton being assassinated. @SergeantSqookI agree it seems likely Jock was another of those warlike spirits. I also think it is no coincidence Mussolini “died” as the war ended, but in his case I see him more as a trickster spirit that is common in Native American folklore (like Loki or Wakdjunga).
  10. This thread is no place for dismissiveness, we are discussing hypotheticals after all. If you be anymore close minded you will turn into @Rinaldi
  11. Its an interesting thesis but I don’t think Patton was assassinated. I view Patton through a spiritual lens. He was one of many war-like spirits sent to earth in a time of conflict. There were many such spirits sent to earth during WW2. When the war was over his spirit had no reason to be on the earth anymore and so he was recalled back to the heavens in a way that wouldn’t arouse suspicion to the mortals. I don’t think it’s a coincidence he died as the war ended. Without conflict to sustain the violent spirit it was recalled to Mars’ side. One has seen this before with the great warriors, they die when the conflict ends because they can’t live without it, they have no purpose. The fact that he used his final days on earth trying to enlighten the mortals should be viewed as a positive IMO.
  12. I agree its very sad. I personally wish the US had been as hard with the French in forcing them to give up their empire as they were with some of these other European countries, especially in Vietnam. Had we sided with Ho Chi Minh and not the anemic French empire we could have avoided the Vietnam fiasco.
  13. Is this confirmed true? I know I've heard similar things from veteran players like @Erwin but I know some like Rinaldi really seem to disagree so I'm never sure.
