All,

I would like to play the updated West Front 44 scenario (ver 2.63) as the Allies. It has went through serveral tweaks and I think it is worth the effort to try it out. Let me know if your interested via PM or send to jedi367@sbcglobal.net and I will send you the scenario. More info about the scenario and it's development can be found on this thread:

You can also download the scenario from the last post in the thread.

I have not looked into the last version, however one thing I didn´t like about that scenario is the wide range of unti sizes, you would expect that an strategic scenario like that to keep units at division levels, instead you get a plethora of small units, even battalions, that add a lot of micromanagement little worth the effort. I would drastically reduce the number of small units merging them in the TOE of divisions or HQs, that would make the scenario lighter and more fun to play.

Yes, the eternal crusade to keep it historically acurate. While WF does have even battalions in it, you'll find that the Allies rarely suffer from this and the Germans only include Battalions when dealing with TDs and Heavy Tanks. It may not be entirely inappropriate, in the future, to almalgamate those German battalions into larger units.

If you finally decide to do it, my advice would be to incorporate armoured units into Pz Div, artillery into HQs and FLAK regiments spread through the Corps divisions

Still looking for an opponent. I am an experienced TOAW gamer but by no means a tactical and operational expert. Surely someone would like to try to throw the Allies back into the channel.

Still Searching?

I can be your opponent if you want.
