Was on the fence about which of these games to order DC1 or DC2. A 45 min turn time in Dc1 vs DC2's 10 min or less seems to point to DC2.
Also seems much of the forum traffic has stopped for DC1 and everyone is now on the Dc2 forum.
I have been playing probably too much WITE,how does DC2's ai stackup in comparison to WITE?
I wouldn't want what I said to deter folks from looking into DC1, which remains a terrific game. DC2 improves an already excellent game in a lot of ways though, so starting with it certainly makes sense.
I guess I never really minded the turn resolution time in DC1 -- which, it should be noted, was mostly long in the Fall Gelb scenario, when all the Allied forces (France, then Belgium, etc. )had to resolve their moves in turn. On the "Very Slow" setting, this could indeed take quite a while. I guess because it always took me a long time to resolve my own turns -- I like to be thorough! -- I figured, 'hey, if it takes the AI 45 minutes, fine -- it took me twice that!' -- and it was kind of a nice break.
But I was definitely struck by how much faster the turn resolution is in Case Blue.
