^Not overwhelming, but still more than most games. The major realism is in the finite fuel and ammo that units have, and that's very manageable with supply units (choppers in particular are helpful for their speed and range).

I would like to imagine this is as a game that allows for some nice micromanaging. Especially with infantry in terms of using them to go places tanks and other stuff can't and having to really rely on keeping troops alive instead of spamming units. Is that so?
Yeah. Losing a unit hurts in this game. Its rare that you have the ability to quickly replace heavy losses. The maps are large enough that even if you can instantly call in replacement units, its likely that they won't be in position to intervene for a few minutes.

Where having more money comes into play is not so much having better units but lots more which with the help of recon you can send into the weak spots.
There is just so much strategy in this game i cant wait to see how games play out in a couple of months when people figure out all the best tactics.

Played a couple games today employing the AMX10RC in its armoured recon role, was quite effective in spotting and taking out units, that 105 is quite effective for hit and run.
I like this game but everything I have so far keeps getting outranged lol. I definetly need better recon units to spot stuff
Ugh, maybe tonight I'll actually, finally be able to sit down and play the release. Haven't been able to play since the beta.
Recently, I've been beaten by someone spamming rank 4 Lynx, OMG, there was nothing I could do. Indestructible and 100% efficiency. I was too confident because I thought it was a very bad unit. I won't fall into that trap twice
Is there anything more satisfying that watching a massive blob of helis just fall out the sky as rockets and aa fire just pours into them ? It makes me smile
I also need to invest in some flame tanks ! I was against some today and I was sat there laughing "Ha ! look at you with your t55's..OH *** !!" They just explode everything instantly it was aterrible !! I think it worked so well because he came at me from the side through some woods so they were at point blank range by the time my stuff spotted them, and then BOOM.

I just had the most fun game ever it was 2v3 (the guy on our team dropped instantly) and we were playing against a clan. They had obviously decided that they'd mass on one side since we could only really cover 2 of the the 3 deployment zones. But they guessed wrong and drove straight into and ambush from my team mate while i rushed forward and captured 2 out of their 3 deployment zones with almost no resistance. I then caught 2 columns of reinforcements just as they cam in before i capped one of the zones. Then we surrounded them and started to push them back...until my game crashed and then i cried.
The game crash a lot, it's a big issue atm. It ruined my 15 victories streak...
so game is like Codename Panzers only set in cold war?
Idiots, Idiots never change.
