From what I've read here, I'm glad I've held off from buying Battlefront as yet. I had been sorely tempted, as I really enjoy games at this scale the best. BUT, there's been just enough comments about the relatively few number of scenarios which shipped with the game, and now this thread. I'm keeping my fingers crossed (and Credit Card handy) that there will eventually be some better news on this front (pun not really intended).
Is there a really active PBEM ladder or community out there for this game? If so, could someone point me (and others) at the forum or site, so I can get a feel for how the game holds up with repeated PBEM playings? Thanks.
Joe's pointed you in the right direction further down this thread. There is a bit of debate on this going on, the general gist of it has been
1. "DBWWII is outstanding" and still has many devotees playing KP, BiN and BiI
2. "BF system is very good, in fact possibly better, but the scenarios are quite limited" which is odd, as there are essentially two scenarios to this game (if you accept that Novorossisk and Saipan are more for 'training'), whilst KP and BiN were by and large variants built around one scenario each. With the scale and nature of the campaigns covered by KP and BiN there was more variation, whereas with OMG you have to get up the road and kill everything in sight (something which I might add I've singularly failed to do succesfully ). I like Gazala, and very much enjoyed my first crack at it, but the game died on my pc (not a fault with the game). It also takes a long time to move all the units in the big games (you can't have it both ways though I guess).
