Re: Searching for a playtester

Parabellum wants to join, too. I will talk to Clemens. To all testers: Although I had done only a few changes since the last test, some changes can cause trouble with the time limit. Also the Demyansk scenario was replaced with a totally new scenario that I have not tested, yet. So if you rush forwa...

Re: Playtest Forward, Comrade

Current scenario: Defense of Kishinev This was not so easy for me. I had to reload two times because of bad luck in combat and a resupplied bomber which destroyed the 2/10 BT. I got a Pz III as proto. At HQ I bought a dive bomer and some attachments. Maybe I needed more troops. During the scenario ...

Interesting that no unit attacked the northeastern VH, because on my run four units arrived Borisov. Obviously the AI decided to do other things at your run.

You need especially good tanks to stop the german tanks (luckily the most tanks are Pz II). BV @25 can be very hard. But you should get at least a tactical victory.
