Is that your way to convince yourself or us that although he won't bring home a beautiful girlfriend and grandkids you could read books to, he actually is a great kid?

Have you lost your mind? I'm not locking the thread, so the alternative would be.........?

Validating my reasoning why I already had him on ignore/mute for previous comments.

I'm 33, I discovered CM on Steam 2 years ago through Shock Force, Visited Battlefront and was Delighted to see the World War 2 Titles, especially Eastern Front Red Thunder. how long have you all been playing? 

I'm 66. Not sure how long I've been playing, but it's since the original CMBO came out. Which seems ages ago now.

When the first forum opened forum members had numbers, in addition to their handle. I was forum member 64. That's how long I've been around.

Playing? In the fall of 1999 a public beta demo was released. That was the first that I played. The only earlier that people could have played is if they were OG beta testers.

I'm 32. First found Barbarossa to Berlin when I was around 12/13 playing with my cousin. Took a long break and discovered there was sequel around 2015. Bought them and enjoying ever since.

Since 2002, I think. As an Ostfronter I first tried the demo of CMBB, was appaled by the ugliness, but gave it a try and never looked back.

Since CMBO open beta demo was released. When was it? Battlefront was still called Bigtime Software. I guess it must have been 1999 with Last Defense and Riesberg. That have been two very interesting decades so far and I´m looking forward to at least two additional CM decades in the future.

I’m 33. I’d played the Close Combat series games since I was 11 or 12. I had never heard of Combat Mission but I had always thought “man, Close Combat would be so much better if it was 3D and had larger units.” Discovered Combat Mission around 2016 and never looked back.

I'm 52.  Started back at the beginning with CMBO and have been at it ever since.  Also a huge Eastern Front fan so CMBB took it to all new depths.  I had a PBEM opponent in Sweden and we literally fought Eastern Front battles religiously for over seven years, exchanging consistent turns.  We fought the war longer than the actual combatants! Ha!  What other game has ever given that kind of longevity?

I honestly do think RT/FR might just be my favorite title of all.

Me too but I haven't tried any modern stuff yet. Not even demos (there are demos right, I'm too lazy to check?) 😬.

Having said that I must confess to a fondness for CMBN.  And CMFB.  And CMFI.  The order I wrote that is interesting (probably to me only) but hey ho.

I'm 18, have long blonde hair and a bodacious body.  I like animals, helping people and doing yoga at the top of Mount Fuji. Well okay that's not all true, but some is. 

And nothing to brag about but I discovered CMRT and then the other titles about two and a half years ago.  Wow, where was my head buried 😆?  Partly in the Il2 skies and SH3 Grey Wolves seas ironically...

You make me blush sir.

But yes GWX is a beautiful thing.  The funny thing (to me at least) was that I went looking for an SH3 mod to correct certain graphic anomalies (you know, the PC ones), and ended up with Grey Wolves (before X IIRC).  Beautiful.   How lucky was that? 

yes it is a wonderful thing that anyone should experience, 

have you actually survived the war yet??? now, there's a question...lol

currently trying to find an issue with the widescreen mod/fix, my torpedo salvo numbers are gone on the TDC, sad face.

It's been a while but in quite a few careers I got very close but sadly the answer is no.  In my defense, I wasn't really trying for that though, more the glory of the tonnage and the survival of the Reich.  Hmmm.

i do il2 aswell... but needing a joystick and more importantly head tracker

You do it without a joystick 😵.  No!!!!  Get one, I have an old Saitek X52 which is great but rather old-fashioned these days.  It has the throttle quadrant (correct me if I'm using the wrong word) as well, great.  And the number of programmable buttons and modes is mind-boggling.

I have a TrackIR but an old version, need a new one.  Pricey but a total game changer for spacial awareness.  Works great for other games like T34 vs Tiger (obscure), and of course Il2 Tank Crew.

And also pedals, I use CH Pro which I really like.

My spelling is not as accurate as my joystick and pedals.

For forumites who don't speak West Saxon ... He dresses up as Bo-peep and shags sheep in front of the punters at Fuji Yama Mamas in down-town Yeovil.

Would be pretty funny to see the “tactics” we used as kids back in the day.
