Re: 2,000+ people online and I can't find a game - the State of Wargame: Red Lobbysim

Unfortunately, the whole process for getting a MP game is flawed from top to bottom. The biggest problem that I see (and which you alluded to, but didn’t call out specifically) is that there are TOO MANY DAMNED SETTINGS. I know everyone bitched when they couldn’t play 4v4 on tiny 1v1 maps but unfort...

Re: [Red Dragon] Patch v.133

I think the more viable deck TYPES, the better. Honestly, I think the game would be much more varied if Type were much more encouraged. It gets old playing against the same old same air-mobile component followed up by heavy tanks and supported by top tier AA and quick-response arty/mortars. I though...

Re: Mixed decks as a basis for balance discussions - good or bad?

At this point I would go one better and have Typed decks be the standard and then balance from there. If Type 'x' or 'y' isn't competitive or is too good, then adjust those as needed. I greatly reduced play time in team games when almost every deck was some sort of un-typed deck with an air-mobile o...

Re: Please allow T-72 tanks for use in Soviet Motorized Deck

Yeah, I never understood this change between ALB and RD. It's not like adding in mid-range T72s is going to suddenly make the Motorized spec for the Sovs dominant! For me, I prefer to make Spec decks and base them on an actual regiment type. It's easy enough to make a BMP-based Motor-Rifle Regt or a...

Re: Will we get Cluster Arty modification?

... Then you'd be caught in a cluster artillery zone easily... There's no need to be seen , those things can just plaster an entire area. They are far more effective if you focus them on a smaller area. Try cluster spamming yourself sometime. I've play a lot of 10v10 and my experience is closer to ...

Re: ATGM Accuracy

The VAST majority of my atgm's 'miss' when the target is visible and then cloaks out for a brief second and the missiles go flying off into orbit. It's beyond annoying and a big part of the reason why I've moved back to a lot more direct fire cannon rather than relying on missiles. The spotting in t...

Re: Soviet Mechanized

I've used Sov Mechanized from RD's release right up until they removed MRLs from the line-up. Now I'm on non-spec for the first time since ALB. But prior to the removal of the MRLs, I think the Sov Mechanized was anything but 'useless'. Sure, Moto-strelki aren't all that great but you have the tools...

Re: Price reduction for transport helos

Has anyone actually looked at a British Airborne deck? You get Ghurkas, Paras, SBS, SAS. Just awesome infantry. WITH NO SUPPORTS, NONE. And you want to penalize them with a 20 point basic helo to transport them? :lol: That's a different flaw with potentially different solutions. Not every spec is v...

Re: Price reduction for transport helos

The notion that something should be penalized because it can eat a SAM for another more expensive helo is retarded. Fine then make T-55 cost 65 points and T-34 cost 55. :roll: No, there is a key difference...there are a limited number of units that can effectively engage air targets AT ALL. And man...
