I should probably give it another try then. It seemed insanely lopsided.

Do I need the complete edition or will just the base game suffice for Tank Warfare Tunisia.

If there's more than one way to do a job, and one of those ways will result in disaster, then he will do it that way.

I was able to hold my own even against the tigers primarily because the AI wasn't very good at using them. Also if you shoot it enough times eventually something will break, typically the tracks and then it's game over. Position your guns in cross-fire so that their tanks are always facing their side to at least some of them.

I found the Panzer IIIs to be the most troublesome due to their numbers and being surprisingly durable. Also the stuka surprise sex but that was rare.

The mission I played it was my ~10 Shermans vs probably 12 Tiger tanks, I had some decent coverage and pillars to hide behind and wait for the Tigers to get close enough. The AI was very stupid and drove their Tigers right up to my Shermans in some instance they drove up to my Shermans backwards! Still couldn't get even a single Tiger tracked, nothing would penetrate what so ever.

So what I'm getting is that much like racing wheels and Steam Marines, don't buy a Graviteam wargame.

Graviteam is best thought of as a game with only a spectator mode. An interactive screensaver.

Holy poo poo, thanks for reminding me I own Steam Marines for the second time in a week. I looked at the Steam page last week and they're making a second one. gently caress them and that lesson on Early Access.

The level of betrayal I felt when Paradox announced their new wallpaper tore something from me that I'll never be able to recover. They tore away my ability to respect anything, and they tore away my ability to feel human.

Great games and I'd say they are all a safe buy but you just have to understand what you get into. A lot of planning and a lot of watching, but glorious watching.
The issue is that losses carry over so you can play aggressively but you'll have losses which you can't replace. But turning a battle over with half a squad and an immobilized tank under artillery fire while the rest of your troops are abandoning their post running in fear or dead bodies burning next to their knocked out tank is epic and not sure you can get that feeling from any other game out there.

I'm intentionally being as verbose as possible in negotiations for my own amusement.

A slight concern that there's still no mention of AI wars outside of the player's actions.

Other than that,
