From: Miami Beach
Everyone's gaming situation is different, so let me give you mine. The gaming location we have is in western Broward County (Florida). I travel from Miami Beach (Dade County), and we have one player who travels from Palm Beach county. The two of us spend about 1.5 to 2 hours of driving time to get there and return home. Forget gas and wear on our vehicles (including risk of accident, etc...), but more important is the time commitment while driving. The other players live in Broward some min's away. We do this almost every week (other than holiday, etc...).
So, our gaming time is very precious. I can tell you that it would be extremely onerous for any player to come to the game just to be bashed over the head in a hopeless game (min's or especially hours away). That's why playing objectives makes sense (besides that's the way its played in competitive events)...the interest to play remains until the Allies can take the objectives they need and the Axis cant take them back, or the Allies fail. This is why our games are played into 1945, and yours end prematurely. MWiF can change this aspect of gaming. Personally I prefer competitive gaming anyway and why I'm looking forward to ladder tournaments, etc...
Conflict with the unexpected: two qualities are indispensable; first, an intellect which, even in the midst of this obscurity, is not without some traces of inner light which lead to the truth; second, the courage to follow this faint light. KvC
