I think that if they take "Baby" Steps in this first game(to make it Really Good)...they can advance the content adding more stuff down the road. In other words...take the slow steady path to making of a "ASL" game. That way you cut down on the bugs and stuff and keep people hungry for more content on a GREAT Solid game. :)

Hey, that brings back memories. I forget what came after Cross of Iron. I haven't been able to find anyone to play the boardgames in so long that I just had to throw them away to make room. If Walker and co. just faithfully copy the original ASL boardgame, I for one will be happy. And no downloads, just the old fashioned hard copy disc that I can clutch in my sweaty little hands. I don't mind downloading a game I'm going to play once or twice but HOS will be a keeper.

They already tried then abandoned it Combat Leader..the game that brought Matrix to my attention. They where also going to follow it up with a Pacific RTS game called Close Assault.

The death of CL was a very sad day..however they where trying to do two hex scales in one game..which I think most likely caused all sorts of problems.

Wooden-
Combat Leader is the one that was on the bottom of the Matrix homepage for years with nothing to see?

Hi guys,

I'll be posting some new pics next week. We're editing the final draft of the manual and getting ready for the final pre-release beta test, which we should be recruiting for at some point in the next couple of weeks.

Regards,

- Erik

Just playing a bunch and noting any technical problems, and such...sending files, and or reporting them on BugTracker.

Sometimes though beta testing can end up ruining a game for you..as you become so used to it that when it finally gets released your getting abit bored. SO it's a two edged sword.

Thanks guys, would still like to give it a go mind. I would like to think that as a beta tester, I could help turn a good game, into a great game.
