Just wanted to let everyone know I have opened command position enlistments for a project I have set up. If you would like to command Hungarian, Polish, Belgian, Norwegian or Finnish forces in a small playtest tournament drop on by Playtesters/Commanders needed for SPWAW Tournament Look forward to your input, suggestions and comments.

I believe most - if not all - PBeM games are done with OpFire confirm off. I play even solo with it off as it speeds up the game, and it feels more 'realistic' that way to me :) Alex

Thanks for the interest. I had a sudden rush of enlistments and am sorting through the emails. At this point everyone who applied should be in.

Copy that Drex. We got the Field Marshall Kerg with us and all we need is a few more War mongers and we are set. For those of you who don't know about this yet, you are about to miss out on a hell of a good game :D

Welcome aboard 11B! Although this will be a smaller "training" exercise to work out the tournament's bugs, accidents do happen in the field . ;) I am especially looking for newer players as well as those who know the game really well so they can share their knowledge. They will help lead and coach the newer players and we'll have some fun in the process. :D For those who would like to consider command of a company size unit in an online multiplayer campaign (my new fancy phrase for a tournament) come on in and look around. Right now I could really use 6 commanders for the Coalition forces. There are 6 units of Polish, Belgian and Norwegian soldiers who desperatly need commanders.

The good fighter requirement is what shunted me off to the Federation. Actually, it was a tough choice between Polish and Hungarian chow, but I have a craving for goulash. Besides, with the Finns on our side, how can we lose?

Welcome 11Bravo and Ruxius to the Federation! We are all awaiting battle. I believe we have one slot left in the 4th detachment,1st regiment.

This will definitely look odd, let alone fell that way. To have a Brigade support trooper commanding line troops. But i'd rather have kerg on my flank than to my front. The feds have me.

Ciao! If you can understand Spanish I can tell you how to do it. It’s a little long to tell you in english and I’m tired to do it now ... :)

[QUOTE]Originally posted by Urquhart: Just a question:i never played PBEM games and i was asking my self how do u manage the op fire?? OK, I had a nap so I’m ready to do it in English... Fundamental difference is that you don’t have the chance to choose against which enemy units you’ll use your “opportunity fire” as you do on solitaire or on-line games. On PBM your. Instead of this your units will fire upon any enemy that comes into its LOS (depending on his stance, experience, suppression and other usual factors). Good news are that you can set at what range you want that your units will react and use OP option. To do so go to the unit information screen (right click on the unit). You’ll see a first green line named: “set range”. This range is the range at witch this unit may engage the enemy during the other player movement phase. For example: when set at 7, enemy units within seven hexes may be fired upon if there are shots available and suppression is not to high. For example: If you want that your infantry remains ambushed to close assault enemy tanks and vehicles, you will have to set this at “1”. This way your infantry units won’t attack until enemy is at a distance of 1 hex. You can see that if you’re on a defective or delay mission the game will automatically set range = 1 for infantry units and set range = 6 for most AT guns. On advance, assault and meeting engagements rage is usually set at maximum weapon’s range. One important note is that if you set rage of one of your units at say “6” and during the battle you shot with it at a longer range, this new range will be assumed as the OP range. Hope that have helped. PS: Urquhart Il mio nonno era italiano. Genovese. Salutti! :)

Gallo Rojo,for sure that helps!!!I never new that.It's defenetly usefull!!Your english explanation is totally clear.Sorry if i did nnot answer to your question about the lenguage but i didn't noticed that.Thanks. PS:Yes,federation seems to be very hard to fight against.We probably have less expirience than you,but remember that new generation has got the power of surprise the old generals with new non-ortodox ideas....Remember Guderian,Manteuffel(?) and Rommel's victories against the well expirienced allied generals?????? Bye

Thanks for the response. All Active Duty positions have been filled. Right now there are only 4 Reserve slots available. All 4 are for the Coalition forces. We need these filled to replace any casualties.

For those who have not got in on this, you are fixin to miss out on something great. Even though this will be the test run of this, it still will be one hell of a good time, I can't wait. :D " You know, I pity the poor bastards we are about to fight, I really do." Gen. George Patton. ;)

If you don't get in on this, you are about to miss out. The Federation has assembled a fine fighting force, and so has the Coalition. This will be interesting to say the least. " You know, I almost pity the poor bastards we are going to fight, I really do." ;)
