Yesterday by chance some friends and I ran across a WaW server which was testing the new FH fanpack. Thats good news because it means we might see those maps before the end of the month. We only had 1 of the maps being used "Burma" but got to play a full round with about 20+ players. It was definitely fun, fast paced and chaotic. I led my friends on a banzai charge against a British held hill top outpost and I even busted out the Katana for the occasion. Their hurricanes and M3Stuart tanks put up some tough resistance but couldn't keep up against the swarm of infantry spreading out in all directions. It was a definite change and something to get used to is NOT seeing british troops in khakis but rather green herribone jungle fatigues while the Japanese have the more khaki colored uniforms. It forced me to do a double take a couple times.
I wish I had the other fan maps because as soon as Burma was over we got disconnected. I'm looking forward to seeing all the new maps.
I'm really looking forward to these maps as well. I picked up ITHOB the other day but a friend was over and let him check out the map, then the next day I can't find a server with anyone playing the map, I'm interested in some new stomping grounds and what some of the community members have churned out.
I didn't make it!
Yea im looking forward 2 them aswell... They are awesome :O
why no AI? :(
@schoolkid: Well, it costs time and knowledge to get it included on a good niveau. I tried it for my map, it also worked, but the bots were too stupid. I spent nearly a week to read all important and teach the bots good behaviour. With no success ^^! So i threw it to the garbage. If you want bots, contact the mapper and make the AI for him.
Why no Fanmappack in the last Update =( ??? Can´t wait to play the maps with the community.
