I can't believe this game is not more popular. Am I missing something here?

Yes. It takes some thought to play. Seems the easier games that take little thought, just move and shoot, like WitE, are most popular. Beer and pretzel stuff is all the rage.

I don't think it is a Matrix issue as much as a Graviteam one. IIRC, they were burned by a publisher, maybe paradix, and were skeptical of anyone else. They're going it alone.

But I agree that this title especially deserves a wider audience. IMO, it blows Combat Mission away on almost every level and is probably my favorite game ever.

I have CMBN and CMFI with all the addons except GL. I stumbled across this simply because of the sale. I am only into it 4 or 5 turns. So far, I am really liking it. So much more to explore. Not having H2H is too bad but I see they are exploring that. So far I give it two thumbs up.

The game has been out for some years, I started playing with Achtung Panzer Kharkov '43 about 4 years ago, and was amazed then that it was overlooked by a lot of the wargaming community. The game has been improved massively since that title and I notice has a wider market base now than it did when first released, which is good. Yea, an unsung hero in my opinion.

I Think what killed the title the most was the hardships of patching.
I bet tons on people would have loved to play the game but the patch issues just killed their interest.

Yeah, the second worst patching experience since the original Falcon 4 and its mods. But I worked it out, but I guess the less PC literate folk failed. Shame really, its a good game.

I personally didn't find the patching process to be excessively difficult. There is a helpful thread on how to do that in this forum. As an update to my post above about the non-existence of H2H, the fact of the matter is it looks like there will never be any form of multi-player. This could be an issue for some buyers.
