edit: can anyone recommend any good youtube WGALB games to watch? Not necessarily tutorials, but at least games with helpful commentary.

I've enjoyed Vulcan HD's work.

(even though we were 6v2 against the AI; but both were Hard, so...),

Resource balancing is done on a side-by-side basis. One side gets a certain amount of resource points, and this is then diveded equally and shared between the players. So you get 1000 points each, whilst your enemy gets 3000 points each to balance it out. As you are fighting against AI, they do not have the inherent organization problems actual people have when playing with a group and facing down attacks from multiple directions.

Yeah, I explained this a lot.

 
Now that WRD (or WyRD, as I shall now christen it) has reached open beta, I took a look at the decks...
Wow! They've certainly bumped up the nationality choices. Aside from new countries, there's also coalitions now, so there's a scandinavian coalition, a Merkozy coalition, an anti-MacArthur coalition, that sorta thing, so now you can have your cake and eat it when it comes to nation choices.

Also, the time period decks are set in is more strict. You can't combine units from the 70ties with units from the 90s anymore, it's either pre-1980, pre-1985, or post 1985, adding more grueling choices even before you've started actually building the deck in the first place 0_o.


EDIT: WELP, incorrect.

So, I'll see you all ingame, the moment I figure out why custom decks aren't working.

Can I just say that North Korea is ****ing hilarious?  For kicks and giggles I just made a deck with over 230 tanks and TDs, and 166 squads of infantry.  Every single one of which are 30 points or less (most are 20 or less).

North Korea: My basic APCs have IR SAMs as standard equipment. That's been a really nasty surprise for some people in the matches I've been doing.

Also, we can totally play World of Tanks in Wargame again between them, the French, and the Japanese.

I made a WW2 deck with NK, as much as possible.

350 tanks and armored vehicles.  It's possible to do some truly hideous and ridiculous things with NK.

Like 40 T-34/85M, 20 squads of infantry, a command vehicle, and 4 AA guns for 1000 points to start a game.

Sounds like North Korea, allright. :) I wish I picked up the series earlier...

So South Korea does Zergling rushes, and North Korea does tank rushes? :p

Makes you wonder how entrenched some of the legacy icons are, if far in humanity's future they will still be using floppy icons when no one even knows the origin.


Plus 5.25s were the bomb.

I still have Their Finest Hour, Disk B, on 5.25" floppy.

I'm going to show it to my grandkids.
