Nice to see all you play CM
Donīt know about CMx1 as I havent bought any yet (reason why I ask too).
I have CMBS and CMBN (CMBS is v4). Although CM is not perfect, itīs still full of strategy, specially with BS, SF and Afghanistan (modern era). With WWII aim and distance is a bit hit or miss, but with modern gear itīs hard to escape the wall of fire that can hit you! The downside to modern era is the map size (to small), as a M1A1 SEP has effective range of 3.500mt so you really donīt benefit all the tactical advantages of modern gear. Javalins and TOWS get the most fun.
I just bought a second hand copy of CMSF (some say CMx2 is better), but I think I screwed it up on buying it due to the security DAP check ect. Battlefront used with the CMx2 series. Lucky enough I didnīt pay much for it. Will see when it gets here. If not, will ahve to go with CMSF2 when itīs out as I love the "afrika korps" look (Syrian/desert) and alot of the NATO units included in the DLC.
