Re: New Players' Night 2nd Aug 1900 GMT

According to most stats, about 35% of Americans work on weekends, including folks (like me) who will sometimes go into the office to get extra stuff done. Keep in mind that virtually every retail establishment in the US is open on weekends, so that's alot of folks.

Re: Some common noob mistakes

Furthermore, think about why you would even bring up the Monte Cassino battles in WWII when we are talking about rushing, in the game sense. I'm talking about Monte Casino to further illustrate the point (which, incidentally, you also made) that pre-assault bombardment does not always work as well ...

Re: Some common noob mistakes

Jirik, I respectfully suggest that for the USMC grunt or Lt. who ran across the beaches in the Pacific...it was a RUSH! Iwo Jima, for example wasn't suddenly met with ferocious resistance upon the initial landing and the thoughts that nearly a year of bombing and the 3 day ship barrage on the islan...

Re: Some common noob mistakes

The most contemporary example of a rush strategy would be the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Was that truly a rush? There huge buildup and a devestating air campaing.

Re: Some common noob mistakes

That response was not totally un-anticipated, Opus, and not a single ship or airplane could have landed on the Continent nor could the war have progressed without the groundpounders having actual possession of the land. Sieging the castle is an appropriate analogy but you don't really OWN it until ...

Re: New players' night - wishes and suggestions

Not at all, they're merely representitive titles of the kinds of books my friends and I enjoyed. Here in the U.S., you can find similar books in any book store- big "coffee table" books. I was merely making up those titles to illustrate a certain type of book. As for the Squad Leader, Fox...

Re: New players' night - wishes and suggestions

I sense kindred spirits. Were you guys nerds like I was (er, am?), pouring over "The Big Illustrated Book of NATO Tanks" and The Big Illustrated Book of Pact Tanks" and "The Big Illustrated Book of NATO Aircraft" and "The Big Illustrated Book of Pact Air...." Well...
