laxx Posted January 13, 2003 Share Posted January 13, 2003 ** as if you need a disclaimer for Chance Encounter** I was playing Chance Encounter in CMBB as Germans just for the heck of it. (for the newbies, Chance Encounter is a CMBO training scenario (also found in CMBO Demo) for the Allies. There is a modded version for CMBB by Tom Klimisch, but instead of Shermans and US troops, t-34s and Russian troops are used). Having not played CMBO for a while,the differences are obvious: * Maps are so much smaller in CMBO, initially I thought there was a conversion mistake for the whole map to be so contained. * HMGs can suppress the whole company. In CMBO, two HMGs could not stop a determined platoon from crossing the wheat field. * StuGIIIs are deadly. I remember the initial CMBO discussion on tactics of how 3 StuGs could overcome 5 Shermans. Now, 3 StuG beat 5 T34s in frontal slug-fest. ( I think T-34s are better than Shermans, I wonder what would happen if I substitute the T-34s back to Lend-lease Shermans). * Well, in the original Chance Encounter, everyone commented that it was a very balanced game, now, I think to be fair against AI Russians, you need to give +25 to +50% and +1 Skill level, IMHO.
