I haven't been on these threads for a few months, now, but I'm back not because of nostalgia, but there is a bit of a heated arguement on the Combat Command forums about disengaging from E-ZoC.
Myself, I first cut my teeth on Panzer General like many, and it wasn't until TOAW where I first had to pay attention when disengaging from enemy zones of control, unless I wanted to get those nasty bombards and watch my units fraction off into tiny bits (or worse).
However, in Combat Command trying to withdraw in a situation like this seems to be more penalizing than in TOAW, and this seems to really frustrate some players who seem to want to continually do this. I know there are some real army vets who are in here time to time, and I'm wondering, do you feel in TOAW that disengaging from the enemy is pretty much spot-on, or has been dubbed down an aweful lot in order to keep playability from degenerating into more of a WWI type theme?
I also read a complaint from a player that Tanks should never be allowed to get trapped in E-Zoc, and should always be able to pass a withdrawal check. Do you agree?
