To me mosly weekdays are suitable now.

Actually "can't give hours" not "can" during weekdays.

Tonight at 8:00 PM Paris timezone I'll be online organizing Cat B decks 3vs3 or 4vs4, depending on how many will join. Name of game will be CAT B decks (obviously).

At weekend anybody? Yesterday I was able to play TWO games in ROW and even one had "only national" setting and I had only 3 min to make a deck but was a very fun game. Was my best gameplay experience since months in RD.

Yesterday I was able to play a B cat only minor game. Regardless were two leavers in 3 v 3 it was one of the most refresing WG RD experience ever. I recommend to try everybody, it is totally different from partially boring A cat games.

Oh fully agreed -80 or 85 timeframe is a real joy - shame most pub players just focus on stat maxed units ignoring the fact the other side is doing the same :roll:

There is one more ways to make more fun the game. Do not allow anyting which cost higher than 60-65CP even in era games except AC. Set high income and enjoy the scale of the battle. I tried only in skirmish with AI and was amazing to see the scale of the game in this case.

(Of course this may lead to balance issues but it is worth to try. Because of limiting the qty. of good tanks ATGM units become more viable.)

Check this out Asguard 10v10 game replay on high income, it was a micromanagement nightmare but some glorious fun - plenty of players had to drop out due to CPU unable to keep up with ammount of units :mrgreen:

Massive tank use, SARH clashes over the entire battle line and mass medium artillery barrages with a 50+ Hind charge at the end of the match :mrgreen:

I'm back online for one week after few months of pause and I must say it's awesome that there are now servers with 80s games, I had few very enjoyable last evening...would be good to be some 85 games as well on big servers.

Who is online
