real time , looking for people,come out of the shell

Recommended Posts

Copied from my other post, cant type again same thing:



got tired of pbem and wego, yes it has its positive sides that we all know but today i realised its not the only way to play the game


positive sides of Real time: u can cancel orders (pretty simple fact and everyone who knows this game , knows how good is this and* realistic in most cases)

Pause available : 1) where you cant issue orders 2) where you can

'adrenaline' , idk about you but my heart beats faster when my panter's turret is rotating and aiming at sherman, and while i am waiting to see will he shoot first ,and then what will happen if he gets hit  and all that stuff

or when you have 1 platoon waiting to cross the street but you see enemy movement and duuno what to do in the moment and u send whole squad to death. those stories are different from the ones in wego/pbem because you are not completely relaxed while living them , you have to decide fast sometimes and it just feels more alive


what i am thinking about is a tiny or prefferably small, maybe Medium battle that would be set to end in 1 or 2 hours (Custom battles/quick battles)


iam not sure about pause rules yet, if there are pauses timer will be set to 1h for small battle or something like that,  if there are no* pauses or its very limited for emergency cases, then 2 hours battle to give us room for thinking since CM is not very optimised/smooth game


Wego that is set to 45-1h actually lasts (not pbem) 2 hours or more sometimes , so its same thing in theory



if anyone is interested send me a message on this forum and we ll play when we both can


dont worry about losing or winning

I've been looking to get a real time HvH game too. I have touched base with Lacroix, but we still haven't been able to have time at the same time to play. Steve, do you have CMRT? The points for a tiny battle (about 950) are much better in that each player gets approx a company which is more desirable for real time play to manage. CMBS's tiny setting is set way too high (about 3200 points). This results in the Russians always getting battalion + size force which is way too much to control for a real time battle without being too hectic. The only way it seems to work is to select tiny, but limit the points by honor system to about 800. This gives Russians a Coy +, and USA gets a platoon+. Feel free to personal message to try to get a game sometime, but as I said I prefer ww2 CMRT setting for better QB settings to get a game going faster.
