    • That doesn't help the player looking to grab an SMG while chat is screaming "EIs In Bunker".   I just think it would be more convenient for players to know that a particular weapon will always be in a particular position on the spawn list. By no means is this an essential game need, I just think it will make it a more player friendly spawn list. I think we had 17 items listed in inf spawn list last map with the DLCs. Thanks for the info, I didn't know about .du and shall try it out. Ian 
    • The French campaign of 1940 offers a unique opportunity to have a game that is both historically accurate and has balanced gameplay.  The available equipment was about even both in numbers and in performance.  Yes, this weapon system was better than that weapons system, but in this early part of the war we are still able to see the different design styles different countries came up with, i.e. there were tradeoffs.  (matilda heavily armored, but slow, pzII fairly fast, but not a lot of punch for its main gun, and so on).   From there, which is tier 0, it becomes a bit more messy to figure out how to proceed.  CRS botched this sort of thing in the early days, imho, but having said that, the 'add 1 for axis and 1 for the Allies plan, given historically accurate models and performance, is a pretty good ideal to stick to.   The players should decide if one side is going to be massively outproduced, in the form of strategic bombing, (and perhaps later, via naval blockade, or even U-boat blockade, who knows).  We all know that modeling everything just isn't feasible.  Picking a good representation, and adjusting numbers so as not to screw up the game in later tiers, is the best we can hope for.  
    • You misunderstand me, I don't want more channels from 1 - 99, I want to use more at the same time. Presently I use mission, target, squad, inter squad, Army, Airforce - I cannot use them and side chat and Help.  I would use more of the individual channels if I had the ability to monitor more channels at the same time.  But if six is the limit, six it will just have to be. I do not think I have had the Help channel tuned for more than 12 years - I would help out on "Help" but I cannot tune it in and the other channels I need in order to play the game, hence my asking if another few "buttons" could be added for comms.    I completely agree we need people to use the right channels, "ei in NCP" on side chn isn't very helpful with 2 AOs and 2 DOs in full swing.   Ian 
    •   Agreed.  I play Allied only, and hell, I don't even fly anymore, but if stuff is wrong with the DB7, then please fix it.  Historical accuracy should be the goal whenever possible.  
    • Making a fair game where both sides have an equal chance of winning doesn't have a counterbalance.  There's nothing worth sacrificing it for.     You at CRS are following that exact policy at this very moment with the extra Tigers and semi autos.  If we had historical numbers we wouldn't have a game.  You decided that it's more important for the Axis to be competitive than to be modeled accurately.  (I completely understand the rationale about the extra Tigers basically standing in as infantry support vehicles, but I strongly disagree with where that line has been drawn.  Hopefully the introduction of the Panzer IIIL will get rid of this mess.)   If at any point you have started to sacrifice game balance for completely superficial things like historical accuracy, you've gone down the wrong path.  This is a game first and foremost.     Nothing trumps balance and fairness.  Nothing.

    • I'm just off to bed but I really wanted to say thank you all again. The CRS GFM campaign has been hugely humbling. In the immediate sense it is of enormous assistance.  I also just got an email with my Kindle report (amazon) and your rallying around my books has pushed one of them (book 1) from the 2 million mark in ranking to 50,000 in rank. The other one (book 2) from 3 million up to 63,000. This isn't how many were sold  of course, just where they sit on the amazon "visibility" list. This is huge for me and helps push me into a more sustainable place in the market. Eventually maybe something more long term which is ... as I go into this weeks biopsy visit; something that lifts my spirits to a degree you cannot imagine. God willing I'll get book 3 done soon and finish the series. Your support in this small enterprise might become something that long term changes my entire life. It's not exactly "going viral" but your difference is making a huge difference to me. Just want you all to know how thankful I am, and how happy that this seemingly small thing you've done on amazon makes me. <S!> ... all of you. Now stop making me cry. http://amazon.com/author/geof.rey.evans?fbclid=IwAR0lKmMI2Hr1W__F_6Kh9T1U13Cb9UpMESonFONFYdcqC_Yau04x0BXqS6M
