Re: Crowd Funding for WG4 ?

Come to think of it RD might have worked better with an ARMA model where the developer provides the engine with a handful of core assets - expanded over the years with updates updates and DLC content - and the community provides the game modes, additional assets etc. A roadmap could be extending the...

Re: Crowd Funding for WG4 ?

Maybe it's not such a crazy idea as it sounds at first. We have Star Citizen, Elite Dangerous, and even Duke Nukem Forever got eventually released. WG4 is a bit of a community dream so the crowdfunding model might be suited. Still I think you're maybe trying to solve the wrong problem. If Eugen want...

Re: SD44 new players friendly version

- You could not fix the TOS at the start in the wargame, but you can, here in the SD44. The game has very serious problems with artillery. Briefly: all self-propelled artillery, especially mlrs, must be transferred to the "C" phase, large-caliber artillery should be moved to phase "B...

Re: Commercial success of different Eugen games

12 months peak player count for Steel Division was 813 - slightly pumped up by a recent patch, which points at one obvious and possible error source in my crude statistics (could use a 30 day moving average or something for a better analysis). SD is far from being an AoA style flop, but still it see...

Re: Support, the most loathed players?

This has been a great read so far. Lots of points one never considered and I might even make my first real experiment at building a support deck after reading this :) I guess I'm a bit biased due to thinking that the only real Wargame is 3v3 or 4v4. 10v10 is weird but it's popular. I can see good su...

Re: To SEAD, or not to SEAD

ASF and helicopters are still used by good players? What makes you think otherwise? Maybe not that much - a couple of forum comments/threads over time and the very occasional game where high levels of skill are obvious (don't go hunting those that often). Hence asking to verify :) My impression has...

Re: To SEAD, or not to SEAD

ASF and helicopters are still used by good players? Well, SEAD can be a problem to my armored-SPAAG. Loss of 50 or 100 pts time to time, and often plenty of targets for SEAD. Unprotected tanks cost more. Then again the question was with good players :) Good anti-SEAD skills can make a world of a dif...

Re: Your Favourite Unit?

Has to be T-90. It's cuddly. And can both take and dish out punishment. It makes an impact on the battlefield. Usually take it as the T-72BU variant though. It's a bit sorta like the old T-72B on steroids, from Steel Panthers 2 and EE. Top tier Challenger a bit too, being the same plus being big and...

Re: Favourite Map?

Basically anything that has a balanced amount of large open fields and no massive forests like Bloody Ridge or Paddy Fields. Sorry guys :mrgreen: Obviously there's interesting ones that are different like Tough Jungle but somehow not so drawn to them, not enough space to roll over. Could we get SD m...

Re: To SEAD, or not to SEAD

Suppressive fire, I guess. Without any SEAD the better players might get aggressive and turn the AA on. You want that? :)

Hangs together with rising the micro costs for good players too.
