ClarkWGriswold Posted December 19, 2011 Share Posted December 19, 2011 I routinely play CMBN via PBEM with two friends from work. We're fairly evenly matched, having all started playing this game (and CMBB prior) around the same time. We've played dozens of games between us and it seems that only a handful of times has the defender been triumphant. I just finished a game yesterday where I, as the American attacker, soundly beat my opponent as the German defender. He had three Stugs, an armored car, a handful of men (mostly MGs), and some artillery. I had 6 Shermans (75s, 76s, and a 105), an armored car, a halftrack, 6 or so .30 cal MGs, and many, many squads of men, along with a generous helping of arty. He simply did not seem to have enough men or machines to fend off my onslaught. The last game that I played against this same guy I was defeated (my latest video covers what happened). I was the Germans on defense and he was the American attacker. Even after inflicting 75% casualties against him, I was finished almost to the last man. His forces were just overwhelming. It seems as though almost every game goes this way, regardless of which of us is attacking or defending and regardless of which side (German or American) is defending (though I will note that the only time the defenders have won were both games with Germans on defense). So, we've decided to try giving defenders a 20% troop bonus to see if that evens things up a bit. I'm just curious if anyone else has noticed a similar pattern or not. Perhaps all three of us just really suck at defending? 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
