I think people can criticize a game without expecting to be told to build your own. There is a history at Matrix of these boardgame ports fading away quickly. Its up to the devs to prove him wrong. Other than that, its just people speculating.

@Steely Glint. I was aware of the game when it came out and took a chance on it even though I own Macs. It took Windows 10arm running on top pf Parallels to get the game running and….then I very quickly find out that it isn’t my game. Could it end up being ‘what I want’? No idea. I shelled out for the original game and will wait to see if it ever gets the features I want. Great if it does and shrug if it doesn’t.

Hey all,

As I mentioned in an earlier reply, Lance and I are already working hard on the next update. We are also taking some much needed vacations. I'm actually typing this reply while on vacation.

We're a small team so often things don't get done as quickly as we all might like. But, ultimately, that's an excuse and one that you, as customers, are free to ignore. As a longtime gamer, I feel that developers should be held accountable and its certainly your right to keep pushing for any changes you want to see, with the understanding that we may not be able to accommodate or please everyone.

There are already some exciting new features in the works. We've probably been too quiet lately and I hope that will change soon.

Cheers,
/bruce

Thanks Bruce!

Being involved as a beta brigade member in another game I hear whole heartedly what you are saying! The dev team guys are all busy trying to make the next game in the series that much better than the last. It is a lot of work making sure the game is solid with its application and tested to the max before its released.

I thank you and all the development guys who work so hard behind the scenes to make this hobby that much better!

Kind Regards,
John

I am a crabby old codger playing pretty much every digital wargame available in the past 40 years, but must say - for the price point of $20 - I would buy the game again.

The bar was set far higher than the developer's previous releases, of which I own one.

I think the OP may see some of the "improvements" he desires, but certainly not all of them at this price point. As I reviewed on Steam, it is a less complex version of the excellent LnL series on Matrix and newer versions on Steam.

I believe many of us are hoping for the Second Front release on Steam to be very close to "Squad Leader on the computer."

In fact, if the devs blow the Second Front release, I will be happy to rest with my ancestors until the arrival of the King of Kings!

I quite enjoyed the first scenario. The game has fun little sounds and a good rhythm.

Greetings to All,
This thread made me hold off on Valor & Victory but then I decided to pick it up on sale to support the developers.
I am also very interested in the Stalingrad DLC that is coming.

Having 60 years of game play (board wargames, miniatures gaming & computer wargames), I find Valor & Victory fun to play at a bargain price.
It has not the depth of Combat Mission series or Lock n Load Tactical series or SL/ASL games but it is a decent first attempt with more improvements to come.
I like the small unit density and small map challenge for a quick game. It runs great on my 10 year old laptop w/integrated graphics.
