What I think that most wargamers really want is just the current cold war time-frame and setting, but improved in terms of depth, gameplay and balance.

Lots you could do really. Better modeling of countermeasures (separate radar and IR ECM), top attack weapons, better city fighting mechanics, add EW-operators who can detect enemy presence, model various weapons properly such as glide-bombs.

This is the answer for the next Wargame.

Obviously everyone wants more nations and new units. I personally would love to see Iran, Vietnam, Cuba, potentially 1 or 2 South American nations on both sides. Just 2 new per side would be good, there are plenty of good options here for the timeframe up til the early 90s

However I think Wargame still has a lot of mechanics, balance, and map design along with game mode design it could improve on. We can chase units and years up until the present day, but what would interest me more is a cleaning up of the naval aspect and a revamp of balancing/map design and conquest zone placement

PRECISELY!! If Eugen could iron out the many quirks in their current engine and add some badly needed features, Wargame in a Cold War setting would be perfect. A modern day setting would be too speculative, since not that much is really known about the true capabilities of the weapon systems involved.

Couldn't agree more! I don't understand Eugen. In Wargame, they have something very unique, and it's Wargame that made them a successful company. Why does Eugen insist on trying to abandon that successful, unique thing? :roll:
