DDay

10 posts in this topic

I'd love to see a real D Day type situation including Normandy area. The allies have the objective of getting to Paris while the Axis are trying to stop the invasion and/or Repel any invasions that succeed. It'd be cool to see that as a mini campaign or as a fun little week long intermission event to try and get some guys back to the game. I can understand if it would be too hard/time consuming to make the towns from the Norman Beaches to Paris.

I like this idea because I would love to have an intermission to see if the channel can be crossed. Whatever side is picked to invade the other would have more brigades, a navy and air support. The side being invaded would have no navy and a limited number of fighters but no bombers. This would get the freighters across.

The division numbers would have to be tinkered with, but the defending army would have less. I think this would make a great intermission.

The idea is good but when the allies invaded the germans didn't know where or when it was going to happen. How about HC choose where to invade So that they can surprise them.

Also take away the symbols of the troops and tanks so  that they have to use recon aircraft which will show enemy action for that time but only the HC will see it.

We've done events before and they are generally pretty fun.......we did a Battle of Britain years ago if memory serves, also a channel dash. You have to sign up for it and you only get one life so no re spawning.

This is a fantastic idea birdman26. Whether it is a Operation Sea Lion, Dunkerque, Overlord, Battle of the Bulge, or even recreating the blitzkrieg of Armor on the Maginot Line, I feel it would be much more engaging than what intermission seems to be anymore. If I remember right, this was what happened between maps when I left around 11 years ago and it seemed to have more participants willing to propitiate the game rather than just fulfill virtual blood lusts without trying to get a fight going as was the case yesterday when I was on. This seems like it would work better now as maps aren't won and fought so quickly.

I agree.....not enough players that would sign up for it now. Steam, anyone?

I have posted this in general for an intermission. Defending side would have no navy or bombers so transports could get across
