How do you see the current state of John Tiller's Squad Battles Series?

Are you actively playing it or plan to purchase more titles?

Or have you moved on to other games?

About six months ago I bought Eagles Strike and Red Victory. A couple months before that they released the map editor for all the SB games, updated the artwork, and made a few rules changes.
I modded both games so that the weapons dont lose their effectiveness, since most games are shorter than a supply shortage would normally become apparent.

BTW all non-new releases are going on sale on the JTS site starting 7/1.

Squad Battles is not getting the same level of JTS / WDS attention as the other series.
I believe the main / only development is community driven by a single guy and he’s really doing his best to keep the series alive.

JTS / WDS should actually give SB the same gold level and beyond treatment as the series is more accessible than the operational games and could introduce new players to the JTS brand.

But that’s just MY opinion - you know what they say about those - and not meant as criticism.

I disagree. It is criticism but constructive criticism and not destructive criticism.

...again, I have to emphasize the amount of development that went into to other series during the last few years, which JTS offered for free to everyone with a valid serial. Not a few companies would try to sell such upgrades as DLC or v2.0 and v3.0 games. Some like Modern Campaigns Gold update were a complete surprise.

The latest updates introduced with Waterloo and Scheldt 44 will also be applied to other Campaign games.

You are right.
Normally I don’t care if I break some eggs, but l just have a weak spot for JTS and WDS.

I like both designs and scenario notes of Ed 'Volcano man' in France'14 and Squad Battles - First World War. Scenario notes were quite informative.
