One thing wrong with this game...
First of all, I really love this game. There is one thing spoiling it for my brother and I however and it has really started bugging us.
So we are playing a multiplayer campaign. I have the entire 4th Marine Battalion land on the coast. Full morale and full initiative. We are kicking-♥♥♥ and taking names. Then a lucky arty shot takes out my command vehicle and the whole division immediately surrenders.
I realise that there are ways around this situation. Don't only have one command vehicle etc, but it is so divorced from reality that it actually spoils the fun. My brother hates it too, seeing it as a cheap victory...especially considering that we were both having heaps of fun watching a battle. Then it suddenly ended because a single vehicle exploded.
We played the next mission, massive forces lined up to fight it out and, sure enough, my helicopters find his command vehicle, pop it and mission ends.
We want to play the game. It would be great to actually fight a battle for once rather than have it simply end on the basis of a highly abstract gaming mechanic.
I felt I just had to say something on the off-chance that it might, might instigate some change.
