Yeah I got an email from steam. What's the final verdict? Worth the buy?
Small 4dd53337d812071cb01527f2050f2b3e
@Walshy refunded his, claiming balance issues among other things.
Small 36df47b405aaa2564575447d0b3a701c
balance is bad, and it took the bad things from wargame.
Small 8807ee669ae5541c36ff22c833472e99
Yet the reviews on steam are "very positive". I am confuzzled.

@Walshy enjoys having unpopular opinions.

RPS also approve
Small 36df47b405aaa2564575447d0b3a701c
Play the germans and get fucked over by far better and more spammable ally's, then you get to micromanage one unit at a time because lets get rid of the four stackable squads. If you enjoyed COH you may find it fun, but playing it as a Wargame title is just bad.
Small 8807ee669ae5541c36ff22c833472e99
That review actually made it sound good.
Small 8807ee669ae5541c36ff22c833472e99
I'll at least buy it, try it and see what I think
Small 4dd53337d812071cb01527f2050f2b3e
Oh wait, I realise why @Walshy doesn't like it, it's because he actually has to manage his units instead of spamming everything at once like he usually does.
Small 36df47b405aaa2564575447d0b3a701c
No it's because you have to manage every single individual unit at a war game scale of units, so instead of getting that group of four tanks to go into that tree line you have to indivudally get the tanks one by one and move them, this makes infantry an utter pain in the arse to use, because you have to micro manage every fi men 10 man squad, also the spam is far worse, the games I played in multi against the USA in the beta was just .50 cal half track and M3 spam during wave one, when you only have panzer 2s and fuck all AT. Dont get me fucken started on the French bullshit, 76 Sherman's in phase fucken one, it's clear that there's an allied bias and it's a red hot meme trying to play germany.
Small 36df47b405aaa2564575447d0b3a701c
Also when the fuck did the Dutch get a ballistic missile time to make a deck
Small 4dd53337d812071cb01527f2050f2b3e
It seems like you don't do anywhere near as much micro as me.
Small 36df47b405aaa2564575447d0b3a701c
isn't tour micro just spam inf in helo's around the side until one makes it.
Small 4dd53337d812071cb01527f2050f2b3e
I think if you watched replays of our games you'd see how little I do actually spam those little scouting parties.

Oh you guys. If I get this and like it inside my two-hour test drive would someone be keen to kick my arse over the weekend? I could do with a modern rts to chuck into the FNG rotation.
Small 36df47b405aaa2564575447d0b3a701c
get wargame red dragon.
Small 8807ee669ae5541c36ff22c833472e99
The setting really doesn't do it for me
Small 4dd53337d812071cb01527f2050f2b3e
Get Wargame: Red Dragon.
Small 4dd53337d812071cb01527f2050f2b3e
But I'd say you could convince me to get Steel Division.
Small 8807ee669ae5541c36ff22c833472e99
We'll see what happens.
Small 1986feca2b0e13d32d9c3ec9c59ba1d0
Any particular reason the setting doesn't do it for you @blaknite ? I find the setting great as the 80's was kinda of the pinnacle of technology where you still had to somewhat get close to your enemy. Plus the sheer variety of units.
Small 8807ee669ae5541c36ff22c833472e99
I think it's the sheer variety of units haha
