Ah, that's awesome, I'll be there for sure. African maps are my favourite. Though, a few comments: May 12th is tomorrow, and tomorrow is Friday, not Wednesday, like it says in your post. Also, Desert Rose is a fictional map. It could take place at any time, anywhere, but as it has a tiger in it and the Allies are in the west, it's probably a post operation Toch map in Algeria. The El Alamein map in FH is the second battle of El Alamein, you can tell by the presence of M4A1 Shermans and Crusader MkIII's, which were both first used during this battle. Operation Aberdeen was the allies counterattack on Rommel's forces that broke through the Gazala line. It started on June 5th 1942 and it took place a bit North East of Bir Hacheim.
Also, could you tell me the reason why you wouldn't want to play Aberdeen, I'd like to know.
Oh, and CET is GMT+2 (not -1)! So 21:00 CET = 19:00 GMT.
Oh you're absolutely right, tomorrow will be Friday and not wednesday (YESSSSSSS). May be I wrote it cause I translated a Nikita's thread, and in french Friday is Vendredi... For Desert Rose, I think it couldn't be in Algeria cause it was French and the Africa's Army hold it... As I know, the Afrika Korps only retreat in Tunisia, but I'm not sure I agree for El Alamein, and hope like every french players a slaughtering map Bir Hakeim Thx for the Aberdeen's date!! I don't like the map Aberdeen cause it's a symetrical map, and I hated that in vanilla bf + there are too many tanks/number of foot soldiers. I would like a system to balance only one heavy armoured vehicle for 5 or 6 players to make the stuff more realistic... (+ deployable At guns he he) But on vanilla I didn't like Gazala, and now with FH it's a fun map By the way, see ya tomorrow nite, thx for coming, the more fools we are... don't forget your sunglasses and a filter for your glass of beer(and your scarf, desert nights are very cold)
Man I was also wrong with the hour, that damn summer hour system!!!
hehe thx lightning for desertrose and aberdeen. Sgt D you re going now in the siberian goulag ... for 1 week ! :nodding:
To be sure :
- friday 12th - 21.00 Berlin time (9.00 pm)
Why did we said that we ll maybe not play aberdeen ?
just because it lags hard when there are many peaple on it. So if we are not too many online we ll play it of course.
About alamein 1st or second battle :
I was looking for operation supercharge on the net and it says it was the second battle of alamein. So i thought El-Alamein map was the 1st one. :bows:
Man, not again the f***ing goulag Smells like team killing in Tobruk...
thanks for those who came in th desert and i hope you enjoyed it. See you on the next event ! :beer:
