All three Wargame games are on special on Steam this weekend. With that in mind, I wanted to ask you guys something...

For those looking to get into the series, there is no reason to buy European Escalation with ALB available, and there will probably be no reason to get ALB once Red Dragon is out.

Would any of you see a reason to purchase European Escalation and AirLand Battle now? I was thinking of buying something in the series now that they're cheaper, but while they're much cheaper than Red Dragon I don't want to buy the first two if they don't have anything that Red Dragon doesn't.

I haven't launched WALB since WaRD got AI.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

No, not really. Even the SP is better played in RD.

I think we need to take a moment to recognize how awesome the Merkava IIA is:



I mean it's a BMPT that can haul infantry squads.  That 105 backed by a 40mm MK 19 is brutal, the combo wreck infantry and can bust up even much tougher MBTs if it can get them into nade/stun range. 

Just keep them supplied :D

Yeah, 9 rounds is.... not a lot.  Good for exactly one minute of shooting.

It does look very fast, though, which is encouraging.

Looks like Finland and Yugoslavia are in the pipe.

Finland should be especially interesting since they mix Pact and NATO equipment.

EDIT >> They've got a dude on a four wheeler ATV in the Recon Tab, that's very dank.

EDIT2 >> And StuG lyfe
