Oh My God.

Let's look at the facts:

1. Axis have no uncappable 2. Allies have uncappable

3. Axis have few tanks or defense guns 4. Allies have many tanks and some arty

5. Axis lose tickets before all their outposts are taken 6. Allies don't lose tickets as soon as a single flag is captured

What is this, retribution for Berlin Outskirts???

Hehe - that's why I enjoyed playing it so much the other night - I was on allied. It's a great map - maybe some balance required though then?

What is puzzling me is, are the germanforces in the map the one that actualy

try to escape, or try to hold open the gap, in either way the flags dont make any sence.

I got really frustrayed with this map earlier today... Not because of the map but because of my team... Altough the enemy was roaming in with tanks I was the only antitanker... Others were assaults or closequarters or whatever was the most useless class at the moment... And manning a PAK wasn't ofcourse an option for anyone...

And ppl are complaining that bots are stupid... doh :rolleyes: ...

Falaise Pocket was the last remnants of the German Offensive in the Ardennes. At this point the Germans are basically f**ked and have no way out (hence the pocket). Each day they were being surrounded so don't be surprised if there are no uncappables. They have few tanks because most of them have been wiped out during the offensive.

I think there should be some more defenses of the axis, and one less flag. Some of the back flags should require more than 1 person to cap them.

Almost correct, :) it was the end of the normandy campain,

The germans got in a huge pocket and the only way out was near a town called Falaise, ( in a nuttshel )

You got your history mixed up. The Falaise Pocket was an encirclement of German 7th Army and 5th Panzer Army during August (IIRC). This is what the Allies attempted. The Falaise Gap, the only feasible exit out of Normandy, was what the Allies tryed to close, but a lot of German soldiers slipped out. Much of their equipment didn't however. Anyways... One less flag? More like 3 less flags! Why couldn't the map be a section of this?

What are you talking about?, are we playing a different Falaise Pocket?, for me is unbalanced because only a really good allied team can win this map.

Working to balance it, soon in your homes.

Many new maps have way too many flags, flaghopping isnt any fun. So try and make maps with some sort of frontline so we can have some fun... With many flags the action is spread out to many places and the funfactor goes straight to hell. :mad:

Why havent you changed Orel yet? It still has too many flags :( :(

think of it as berlin, axis have no uncapp and few tanks, its a map that is ment for the allies to win, and it makes the axis team harder to win.
