This used to be one of my favorite maps - it had really nice long ranged infantry combat in cool enviroment, nice teamplay mostly due to lack of vehicles and great balance - until in some version, .66 I think, the original design was completely scrapped. Infantry combat was almost completely killed by adding like three times the original amount of tanks on each side and removing expacks. In its current existence it's some disgusting abomination of pure tank combat fitted in infantry battle enviroment.
I loved the long ranged rifle combat factor in its previous incarnation. You were mostly fighting only infantrymen and some lightly armored vehicles without a fear of running into a tank that could mow you down like nothing. In every game, running through the woods, we formed groups to flank and attack the enemy. It was a completely unique map by every aspect, until people started complaining about getting tired of running long distances from flag to another. Well, this could have been solved by adding few unarmored transports, but then someone thought up to add a dozen tanks. This completely ruined it, making it like every other map in FH, except only a lot worse.
Did this help the maps publicity? No. The people still dislike it, but not only that, even the people like me who used to like it dislike it now.
So please unsuck Fall Weiss. Revert it to way it used to be in .65 with only some .67 changes.
Yep, I complelty agree. I remember the good ol' days of .65 Fall Weiss, I am an infy man, so it was one of my favourite maps. But, now, with all the tanks, it has made it so you need a tank to do anything.
.67 Murdered my perfect "Case White" Polish ultiment defence, with the removal of explosion packs, and the new configuration of buildings in the town.....those [email protected] :mad:
I haven't even played the new version due to it's "popularity", but i agree. This "lets make FH a tank sim" is really getting annoying
I agree, but your thread title could be a bit more diplomatic.
blitzkrieg was not in the mapper's mind?
It crashes to desktop for us :( I have not played it in 0.66, so I was hoping to get some blitzkrieg done with the clan...but noooo.....it had to crash us all :(
if you want blitzkrieg dont play fall weiss
i would agree, they should cut down on armor on that map or otherwise it's going to look like a Kursk-1939 clone:D I say give the germans a Panzer II, Panzer 38(t) and a Hanomag, and give the Polish a Tankette TKS 20MM, 7TP Single Turret and a Wz.34 or wz.29.. Something that would be also nice, is if the wz.36 anti-tank gun on top of the hill near the town flag would be move to a new location where it could still defend the town, but is unable to shoot the Stuka or Bf-109 ( Good place to place it would be next to a house next to the brigde )
Hey nice thread! and you wonder why FH devs are quitting.
