I realize some might feel this is a dumb suggestion, one for which i could be horribly burned from constant flaming, but I would love to see at least one more early war German vs. french map. Being FH.07 is just around the corner, would it be possible to maybe convert that horrible Vanilla Bocage map to early war france vs germany. This way atleast we can have access to french fighter planes, and there currently nonexistent AT gun..

It WAS as significant part of the war, but it's getting close to the release of .70. Maybe we can hope for a few of these scenarios for FH2-- a Dunkirk map would be neat-- that's map where if it's possible, the French and British could REALLY fight together.

I would _LOVE_ to see this. I am a huge fan of the idea of more early WWII maps (I know a lot of people prefer late-war maps, but still.) As I said in another thread, a map like bombing the Meuse bridges near Dinant/Namur would be cool. Maginot line, breakthrough in Belgium, Dunkerque, etc.--these would be fantastic.

I have a huge list of early-war British and French planes/vehicles I'd like to see--I think I'm about the only person here who likes Counterattack 1940 :-)

A Maginot-Line map or a map that features German parachutelandings in Holland in Mai 1940 would be great.

No you are not ;) Early war map are very fun, but they should be designed with flags closer to each other : so that there are more infantry fightings.

I dunno about necessarily having infantry fighting per se, but it would be nice to see smaller maps just to motivate people to play together.

The great big open spaces in Counterattack, Fall Weiss and Eastern Blitz are great for the sort of blitzkrieg I'm sure the mappers imagined, but 40 or so players just aren't enough to fill them up with action! Maybe 64 would do it, but even then, the bigger maps are difficult.

In these maps it'd be nice to have infantry-only spawn points closer to the action--once the vehicles in all Fall Weiss and Counterattack are gone, it's just usually a long painful walk to where anything is going on.

Some more french maps smaller though mainly infantry combat focused wouldn't hurt. :)

Another interesting (Free) French map would be Bir Hacheim in the North African desert.

Also, it would be nice to be able to PWN the Germans with the Ruby!

Objection! I like the map two, but only on German side with x-packs. Its fun to blast the french tanks! I'd like to see more early war maps too, not only on the western front, but also on the eastern such as barbarossa or kiev!
