Damn, in version 1.01 Paris was undefended.
I'm (pleasantly) surprised to see this is going to be trickier than I first imagined.

Damn.
A stupid rush of blood.
Tried to dislodge the Parisian unit at low odds, and solo after the combined attack failed. Got Smashed. Tactical fighter destroyed and Armor lost. I need to rethink this game.
Getting my arse handed to me in a sling.
...and to make matters worse, it looks like brussels is going to be retaken!

Things are going from bad to worse.
French 2nd Armee Retook Brussels, but even more crucially cut off supply to my units north of Paris, rendering them incapable of effectively attacking the city.
This AAR is nothing like the narrative I expected to be posting.

I think this is getting embarrassing.
French have gone on the attack, and are successfully pushing back, (read wiping out) my blitzkrieg.

Making just about every mistake that can be made.
Deployed a new Tank Corps to the front line, immediately destroyed.
Too shocked to even screen grab that error.
Vanished in an eye-blink.
A good A.I. and me being a pixel pushing noob is not a good combination.

Anyone with a nostalgic memory of SC1 will enjoy this title.
It's more than just a 'Time of Fury' lite.

What have you done with all of your commanders ?

I can only see two assigned in the screenshots.

They've fled!
I'd only assigned the 2.
I had become so accustomed to smashing my way through the early part of the game (1.01), that until I saw units in Paris, I figured I would do the same.
What I thought would be a tale of kick arse is now a rather sad tale.
It's going to take a bit to get it back from here. With the rather limited turns.
I'm not giving up...yet

Actually, I think I'm screwed, but what it does show, is that if you go in all guns blazing, you're going to get burned.
I'm not taking this game lightly again.
It should also be noted, that I'm playing this
AT THE DEFAULT A.I LEVEL.
No Bonuses. For me or A.I.

Capturing pics using fraps by the way.
No luck using normal screen capturing software.

FRAPs works; but Snag-it is better, with more options. And it is very easy to use.

Not sure whether you can window this game, but when capturing it is sometimes better to run the game in a window.

Nice AAR.

Yeah I tried snagit ver 11, but to no avail.
Windowed option is no good on my monitor, what settings have you used successfully with this game?

Winter is here, and my front line troops are cut off.
I've purchased armor and infantry to come to the rescue, but they are 2 long turns away from arriving, and I will not be deploying them near, the front line, (given my last lot evaporated when attacked; live and learn).
Brussels is now well defended and strong.
My weakened units huddle hoping for a breakthrough.
So now I rebuild and wait for winter to break.
Hopefully then some revenge.





(real life has somewhat intervened of late, but I will continue this.)
also the mods here and others are available in the time of fury threads.
