Re: What is the point of B or C class divisions if they are confirmed not to be in the campaign?

It will be interesting to see what competitive players use. I like that we have A B and C divisions though. If say a C division gives you a combination of abilities which gives a strong edge in certain tactics (I think this happened quite a bit with RD) then competitive players will use it. Sorta l...

Autofill, BG management, etc

Let's talk a bit about the meta features of battlegroups - how to best edit them and keep them tidy. First off, the Autofill feature feels nice - both for convenient experiments and for new players. For a real BG, I would think I would prefer to start from a scratch (Autofill could still be useful t...

Re: Misc issues and observations

DP 28 is listed as both "light machine gun" and "medium & heavy machine gun" (what on earth is that) Small machine-gun -> submachine gun Don't think I've seen much baguette language otherwise this time around :) PS. When you make your first Axis BG, more selections appear to ...

Re: Misc issues and observations

Thanks, we'll investigate that. Maybe there is no need - ask any dev, this is probably working as intended - I don't have any user created battlegroups for Axis. For Allied, I have 1 at the moment and that gives me 3 more options in the menu then :D My suggestion could be to allow the player/lobby ...

First impressions / the Big Beta Day 4

Finally jumped to the beta bandwagon and here are some first impressions after 3 skirmish games. My reference point is WarGame (Red Dragon) and to a lesser degree Steel Division 1. Overall, vibes are positive. The main coolness factor comes from which conflict was chose as the scope and how it's pre...

Re: Multiplayer matching

A lot depends on where the big mass of players goes or is guided to. One idea could be to reroll Ranked as Quick Play and have it as the top button in the main menu. If the population is large enough it's enjoyable for the casual players too. Ranked in WG (d)evolved into an arena for 1v1 elite/tryha...

Re: Multiplayer matching

Matchmaking has been proposed from at least the Red Dragon era by the community. Not sure why such a system has not been implemented. One issue I think is that you would need to have a fairly large queue for it to work effectively. If you have a very varied game like the ones from Eugen, you would n...

Re: World news thread

Looking at trends such as bots, paid trolls operating under the direction such as Russia, nationalists of all types, and even leftists It seems we are looking at the next stage of geopolitical affairs. The alt-right who claims to hate the new left has a lot more in common with them than would like ...

Re: Games I am officially EXCITED about.

F-14, Mig-19 and the dedicated server were released. It always feels like they're still adding a few pieces to complete the puzzle, just you have to wait another couple of years. Mi-24 was first teased a decade ago and they are still quite tight lipped. As a simulator, it's definitely worthwhile... ...
