I think this needs to be said as to why I have completely stopped playing this game its a culmination of old technology, a company that has little or no forward thinking and design changes that just went wrong
You know I was going to let this drivel go, but I think not. You have a lot of nerve posting this in a very rude way.
I can solve your problem. GO AWAY.
1: Patches-Upto patch 1.02 it was an excellent game and from there it went downhill
There were unadressed issues in v 1.02.
in patch 1.04-
we have battleships, civilians and all kinds of other useless gimmicks which do not enhance game play..If you want reality then why didnt you include a concentration game icon as well, We have supply depots that do nothing for game play, HQ units that dont work and so on-The most irritating gimmick is Individual snipers ( last time I checked this is a platoon game) why do we need individual snipers!!)
And not one of these items do you have to use. None. In fact I am reasonably sure that the vast majoirty of scenarios around at the time of v1.02 do not have any of these features.
The developers folded to the a minority of players who wanted this crap while ignoring the majority of players
You could not be more wrong but let us continue.
we have OBs of useless countries which had useless armies- Romania (in fact we have an entire set of scenarios dedicated to that useless army that played such a minor role in the war). Hungarian, Finnish, Bulgarian, Yugoslavian and a few others useless armies that played such a minor role in war
Glad to see you have no clue about the OOBs. Romanians, Hungarians and Yugoslavian OOBs have been in the game since its begining. Any of the other OOBs again you do not have to use.
You also left the French OOB off your list of useless armies.
close assualt system
This should either have been changed or NOT-Not some stupid comprimise that again made a minority happy and a majority very unhappy
The developers should have had got some back bone and made a decision
There is no comprmise. There is a choice. Extreme Assault or No Extreme assault. This is a win - win. Everyone gets the type of assault they want.
This has been a complaint about the game for ages-Unfortunately MATRIX missed the boat on this when they first aquired the game that is when changes should have been made to the game engine before the 1st patch came out
I don't play against the AI so I cannot comment.
Why I want to play AI-ITS CONVENIENT!!!-
I dont want to wait for some stupid human being to send me a turn 1 week or more later that should take 3 minutes to do-Again Panzer corp solved this problem beautifully
With this attitude I can see people lining up to play you.
Is playing humans better-Of course it is but its inconvenient!! and finally unlike Panzer Corp which solved the cheating problem JTCS series did not so again
Matrix missed the opportunity to upgrade the game engine
Go play Panzer Corp then.
Not so visually stunning Graphics-
As the world of computers gets more and more advanced this game is being left in the dust visually-Again there was a chance for Matrix to do this upgrade and they missed the boat
You do realize that most play in 2D? Well at least I think they do.
This game is dying a terrible death because
A MATRIX games missed too many boat to really upgrade this game and
The developers/designers (out of there good heart or whatever the reason was) made the mistake of trying to make everyone happy (especially the minority of players who wanted useless crap in the game
You left off this reason: Because whining sacks like yourself constantly bitch about what they are not getting in the game and doing nothing to help promote the game.
The game was already on life support after TS dropped it. Only the time put in by Jason Petho, Huib, Warhorse and countless other kept the game alive. And they all did this without getting paid and if I am not mistaken the do nopt get paid for their time.
So Im gonna wait for the John Tiller Software to come out with Panzer Battles-a platoon based game and then Im going to toss JTCS series out the window
Good for you. Go buy it and GO AWAY. Enjoy!
I completely understand why people want patch 1.02 it represents the very best of JTCS...so give players the option of having it
No, to you it represents the best of JTCS. To others not so much. It is all subjective.
PS I wont buy/get modern wars because its based on the same graphics and same game engine as JTCS hence the same problems
Excellent, then we will not have pleasure of having you bitch about Modern Wars.
