Can't set up a poll, so a simple yes or no will have to suffice. This thread isn't meant to debate the merits of the feature, OK?

Do I use C&C? : no

Oops, I lost count of the votes. You can obviously tell that my day job is as a tax auditor.

Yes, I have always been playing with C&C since ever or at least since it has been implemented in version 5.1 IIRC.

Nope. Not even once. Too many other nuances to figure out so far. Maybe someday.

Yes, forever. Wasn't it available in the old Steel Panthers series? Maybe not the first SP but the second? I remember using it back then or at least when it first became available.

Yes I do, usually.

Often the AI is normally too easy to beat without it.

I've found no problem losing to the AI without C&C!

I use it for preference, but find that many scenarios are not well written for C&C. "Not intended for C&C but I've tried to keep units together" is usually a bit of a trap, I find. this is often code for "a company of tanks will appear on turn 12 in a forest within your rear perimeter".

It must be difficult to write in a way that provides a challenge if you are God (C&C off)and yet is still playable with C&C.

I can understand that C&C produces some weirdo situations. There are cases when obvious cover-seeking options are not pursued. I can't believe that a unit cresting a rise and coming under fire would sit there and take it without withdrawing 50m. But I'm not a military man so perhaps doctrine is indeed as dumb as C&C.

I use it on occasion, mostly dependant on the # of actual units that I find myself in command of, the real military works on a combination your aquired rank and the size of the force u govern. example { generals don't command squads,and corprals don't command divisions} command structure works by equaling your rank to your assets, I usually get about 3500point start to my campaign endevors which gives me a losely equaled regiment, 800 to 1500 men with all crews and attached specialty squads, so my command should be at least a major if not a colonel,then from regiment to division,1500 toabout 5000 men u get into brigadeer and leiutenant generals and so on and so on.
When my battles have a lot of support I tend to buy more secondary HQs and command posts which when u think of the logistics of so much intersquad intercommand radio traffic theyed need a bloody switchboard and how those runners don't smash face first into each other is beyond me. when u get too many forces for your command unit a natural gap in messages and orders can be expected thats when u should turn on C&C.
