From: PDX (and now) London, UK
Quite impressed with this game, reading the AARs, and with the this forum, but before committing the comming years gaming-time to this monster a few question - is the AI any good or do you have to play PBEM? - and the game is from 09, anybody knows if an updated version is on its way (don't want to invest to much time now (if I can resist...) if next years model is on its way)?
Some players who are very knowledgeable and present on the forums only play the AI and find certain games really fulfilling. There is nothing like playing another person though, and you can easily find a player who matches your needed turn rate.
This game has been modified extensively since release by several people involved with the original design. Da Big Babes team () and michaelm () in the tech assistance area keep us going with lots of continued improvements!
The most important feature for me is that I learn more about this era from the game and from the forum than from any possible source. Books are great, but when you actually have to make things work in game, it suddenly becomes a lot more clear.
