How's Operation Torch DLC ?

Post by nukkxx5058 »

Would you recommend it ? Are the middle size scenarios [20-30 turns] any good/balanced to be played in PBEM ? Is it easy to find opponents who also own Torch ?
Would appreciate your views on this matter.

Thx

personally I find them first rate.

They really bring the logistics, that the Allies struggled to go toe to toe with the Germans etc to the fore.

I'm no great fan of the purely Italy scenarios but find myself going back to these quite often. Low counter density + big decisions does it for me [;)]

I really like it. I have found no problem finding opponents. Multiplayer system works well. Let me know if you want to PBEM.

Cool ! And are medium size scenarios in Torch well balanced to be interesting in PBEM ? In particular the Afrika ones ?
Otherwise sure, will let you know for PBEM :-) Still need some air ops and supply training for the moment ... but soon !

Ok I took it ! Just didn't realize it was on sale on Matrix' site and took it from Steam at the BIG price ... too bad [:(]
Anyway, what's done's done. The desert sand already made me forget this incident: Playing my first scenario as Rommel, looks greatissimo !!!
Having good fun ! What a great game !!
