Kudos to you. Goodwood is imo the best map in 0.65, and Falaise Pocket is very neat looking. However, as I said before, it needs a different flag setting (with fewer flags). Currently the battle spreads out too much and on smaller servers it turns out as a flag tag.
Beast of WarYes.......the American tanks are utterly useless against the German infantry panzerfausts and satchels, in the terrain with a clutter of bushes every 30 m or so.
...as are the German tanks when every other american is carrying satchels or a captured panzerfaust. Really, as you are usually one of the most outspoken advocates of team play I am surprised to hear this from you beast.....the few times I spawn allied and actually get a sherman, I find a group of infantry on the map heading somewhere and I drive over and support them. They protect you from suicide satchel bombers and you protect them (sort of) from the Panther/Pz4. IT works rather well, gives a good feeling of team play (albeit on a smaller scale) and even allows you to build up a respectable score if you care about that sort of thing. This map is more difficult than most for tankers but that really underscores the importance of tanks sticking with infantry...even moreso on this map than others. Edit: Spelling is hard when you havent had coffee yet.
