Aparently will be released on the 28th November through CDV in Europe

http://www.cdv.de/index.php?id=1066986497&g=3_games_vorschauprodukt&sid=us010300&l=e

Although usually the CDV version is a couple of weeks behind the US BTS version and this time round BTS say they will be shipping to the UK/Europe (not germany though I think).

Rumours are the BTS version is out on the 15th...

Wheeee!

I'm still undecided on it.

Beta1
11-11-2003, 16:34:16
Is that your final decision?

Venom
11-11-2003, 16:51:26
I don't yet know.

MDA

I'm decided, its just a matter of time.

I didn't buy BB, though.

i think this one will be my first entry into the CM world...

Venom

You'll of course be entering through the back door.

MDA

Naturally.

or unnaturally...

hope you'll be less of a yellow liver than Venom and play a few games with us

oh definitely, i'm looking forward to it.

i keep forgetting though, with this version, will i only be able to play the africa campaign or will i also be able to play other theatres (or will this require other editions or add-ons)?

only africa (and Italia)

but that should be enough, as plenty of home scenarii will be churned out by the CM community

There should be the correst vehicles to setup beyond overlord era battles.

You wont have access to the eastern front as theres no russian/finnish/hungarian etc units but you dont want to go there - its very very nasty. And not nearly as much fun in swanning about in a churchill 8 while shells bounce off you like tennis balls.

If your liver isn't yellow, you're not drinking enough.

It's funny when furriners try and use slang English insults and then get them wrong.

there are plenty of comic shows built around that, cousin Larry

I'd take Balky Bartokamous as a poster over maroule any day.

I already had to fight off the brits, so the balkan guy is not getting over me either

Don't let him get behind you, either.

Off topic, kind of . . .
I am currently reading "An Army At Dawn: The War in North Africa, 1942 - 1943."
This is one scarry book. It is a wonder that we* ever won the war.:eek:

*we as in France, G.B. and U.S.A., oh yeah, with a little help from the USSR.:)

Venom

Take that crap to the history forum.

there was no Poles in north africa IMO (waiting for LoD to find a pole brigade in the 8th army, which he will probably do), but I just reviewed 'highway over the reich' (matrix/panther games) where they play an instrumental part


I just finished this very book JS mentions, and indeed the amount of blunders is astounding - but it's the whole thing about this campaign, a training camp against german troops. What you see clearly is that if the US had gone directly for a landing in France in 43, as was discussed and required forcefully by Stalin, it would have been a slaughter. Instead, US troops got a first hand experience of gruesome fighting and adapted their tactics + troops management (esp morale issues) accordingly. Ike grew a lot in his CC role as well thanks to that.

I won't be getting this till Christmas. I mentioned something about buying it and was told in no uncertain terms NOT to buy ANYTHING until Christmas.

Four days without food, now. At least I don't need to worry about running out of toilet paper.

Curiously how the street I live on in Warsaw bears the name of the "Defenders of Tobruk", but I think you know the answer :)...

Venom

Oh like that means anything. The French have all kinds of misnamed streets and monuments. The streets Staunch Defenders and Ferocious Fighters and of course that pesky Arc of Triumph.

LoD
18-11-2003, 12:33:46
Like that means anything. No one creates national hype better than the French :p...

(sorry maroule :) )

I think you may have missed the point of that post.

What was it then?

Don't worry LoD. King Fucktard is just jealous he wasn't smart enough to join in the conversation.

King_Ghidra
18-11-2003, 21:55:35
Did someone call?

Venom
19-11-2003, 02:41:08
You're King Gay Fucktard.

Darkstar

So they are brothers then?

LoD

Only in bed.

at least King Gay Fucktard will play against us at CM, unlike others who are bigger on words than on actions.

Venom

I'm too good to play against you guys.
