  1. Yepp, I can agree on some exahaustion - but not much, as it is now it is borderline riddicolus. I have actually almost stop using Hunt mode, only in very specific situations. Splitting up squads into fire teams and leapfrog them using regular move mode is better, because then they do not get exhausted and still have good enough fire readiness with in the squad.
  2. Hunt mode for infantry are all to exhausting, unrealistic exhausting. I can not recall that I have ever been that much more exhausted from sneaking and wtaching, when enemy contact is expected. Infantry get exhausted as hell as it is, why do Hunt mode exhaust them so damn much? Should not Hunt mode just be the mode where they always stop at contact instead? The move options now is good, the faster the more likely they only stop briefly or not at all to fire back. But it is unrealistic that Hunt mode are that more tiring for the infantry. I would like Hunt mode to be a slower advance and where they always stop at contact. Should it be more exhausting than just Normal move? Of course, when one cocentrate and have the weapon in ready position that is a little bit more exhausting than just marching ahead. But this much? Not in my opinion.
  3. I have I multiple example when 7,92 rounds hits the enginge room en masse and the damage indicator is not even turning yellow, I did a test with 13 crack jeeps with high morale going up against a crack MG42 at 250+ meters and the result so far is that the jeeps are not invunerable - but they are to unrealisticly strong. In this perfect set up with open terrain where the jeeps rushing in with out caution or in any tactical manner and hardly any possibilities to retreat in shelter the absolute majority was knocked out eventually - but they had in my opinion to damn good resiliance. Two jeeps actually went up in flames after just a few burst, so it is not extremly unbalanced, but no one can argue that it is normal that a engine take multiple hits and never ever recieves damage from it. It seems like engines is seen as armor in this game. 10 destroyed, 2 retreated and 1 dismounted/crew killed was the final result. Watch the video and notice the damage indicator for the engine, even though they where hit hard nothing happens with the damage indicator - this do inflict the game, I will not call it game breaking but it gives soft skin vehicles to much resiliance and that makes things some what unrealistic and unbalanced. The solution is quite easy in my opinion, make the engine take damage when hit and the unbalance is fixed in regards to my view:
  4. I will set up a test in the near future. I am also very interested how much damage engine takes. I counted 20+ hits to the engine compartment and the jeep kept retreating behind the knoll in the turn after. A engine would for sure be totally screwed after that much punishment. In a CMRT-game a while ago I noticed the same thing. One of my trucks tog alot of hits to the engine, no damage at all. Damage indicator was still green, not even yellow.
  5. Old topic, but here is another example when the hits seemingly do not affect the vehicle at all. In the turn after this one, the vehicle kept retreating and went behind a knoll. MG42 team firing from about 250 meters distance.
  6. Ok, well I have not used much aircraft my self to much. I have seen some blue on blue, but good info about that how they abort missions did not know that they do. I must have had some bad luck against aicrafts so far then, because they have ripped up my forces quite well alot of times even though I have had alot of AA. And even if they do not kill a tank, they can damage/destroy optics and such. I'll keep testing games with out house rules against aircraft and see if my experience with aircraft changes.
  7. I have played alot of games now. When it comes to AA-efficiency I am a bit disappointed, many AA-pieces are good to use against ground targets. But I have no good experience of AA vs aircrafts. They seem not to throw them of target and not a single aircraft has been shot down by my AA so far. I usually have a minimum of two AA-pieces per game (usually playing large, and a few time huge games). I usally use 20mm Flakvierling, 37mm Flak 36, 40mm Bofors, and the soviets 40mm as well. I have so far never used the 88 or the soviets 90mm AA piece. Do I have had bad luck or are AA useless vs aircraft? AA during WWII did not shot down everything, that I am aware of, but by this time when I have played alot of games they should have knocked out at least some of them. It does not even seem as they are able to disturb the planes when attacking and the aircrafts also seems to have a unrealistic good aim and detection ability (compared to battlereports from WWII). I really likes this game when it comes to realism, but in my experience the aircrafts vs ground targets and AA vs aircraft is that aircraft are unrealistic good at what they do. They seems to have better aim then modern CAS-aircraft and AA seems useless against aircraft. I actually would tell my AA not to shot at aicraft if I could, because it is a waste ammo, and when an aicraft attacks it also reveals how many AA-pieces I have invested in. I will from now on only play games with out Aircrafts, which is boring because I do not like to have to many house rules when playing. At least the aircrafts should be possible to knock out some planes and also have the possibility to disturb airplanes when they attacking. No more aircrafts in a game before this is fixed. Or have I only had bad luck?
  8. Well. I really hope it will be one, it will not only be popular in Finland but here in Sweden to. Alot of volunters went from Sweden to Finland, for natural reasons - our brothers to the east. Would be alot of interesting infantry units like the sissi and famous weapons like Suomi m/31.
  9. Will there be any modules for the finnish front in CMRT? Like they added Market Garden i CMBN.
  10. When i did a test with foxholes and placed 10 AT-crews in different kind of terrain and called for one fire mission (short) with 4x 10,5 cm howitsers. The first test with out foxholes next one with foxholes. I did not save the protocol I made unfortunatly, but it needs more testing then just 10 if do a proper examination. I did notice difference in casualty, abonded ATG and wounded. And when I have used foxholes in games it feels like it do make a slight different. Foxholes are not that expensive and if I have some extra after I am satisfied with my battle group I often purchase some for ATG, AA and other key weapons.
  11. Well, not much changes I would say. Good that they fixed the arty/cover-thing that was totally unlogical. I still can not understand why they do not fix the buidling protection, love the game but it is actually crappy that a thin wooden wall has the protection value of reinforced concrete for example. Totally unlogical how they handle the protection levels at this moment, just cant see why and how it would be a big thing to fix it.
  12. Is there a change log for all changes made in the patch?
  13. I am sure some body already asked this, but where to unpack and install the patch? Where I am not so much into computers, just the strategy games.
  14. I am trying to get my head around damaged tracks, how they get damaged and how that effects the tank/vehicle: 1. Are the damaged taken by a point system or by die rolls? It feels like the damage is gather by som kind of point system, no die roll involved. 2. Does the speed going over fence/minor walls affect the risk for damage and/or risk for damage? My opinon so far is a big ? 3. Is it easier to get bogged down? I suspect yes, everything else would be un-realistic. 4. Does AT-rifle only damage tracks/wheels or are they able to actually destroy them? So far when I have tested (and I have tested AT-rifle against different vehicles at different ranges and speed - have not done enough testings yso that I can have a strong opionin yet though) only minor damage has been sustained against tracks/wheeles. I do think AT-rifle are useful, so no criticism against them over all but when it comes to tracks it feels odd that they more often scores hits that make bail outs then destroying wheels/tracks. If I used AT-rifle i would primarly aim for tracks and optics at tanks (if the range gave the opportunity to bee able to choose), it seems that the AT-rifles do that when close to a tank - but the result is mediocre. 5. Does wheels get damage from going off-road? My feeling is yes, but have no evidence or have not done any testings.
  15. Thanks for the info, someone wrote almost the same in "The Few Good Men" forum, really strange way to determine penetration value - but it is what it is, they really need to change it. I'll copy/paste your list!
