I've been away from here for a long time and just started getting back into games and decided to try the new Desert Combat Patch. Many patches ago when I used to play DC is was fun. I think all the Counter Strike Kiddies have taken over the majority input as to how the armor in the game is balanced because now.... it's all the same. T72=Abrams=Brom and whatever. It's a shame. There is absolutely no difference between an Abrams and a T72 whatsoever. All this wonderful mod is now is just an updated version of Battlefield 1942. V A N I L L A - B L A N D - B O R I N G

Why is it that so many mods over their life span become more and more and more "balanced" to end up being sh1t. Why is it that mod makers equate vehicles having the same damage scale as being a "balanced" game. Is it because they are really not that talented and it's just too damn hard to balance a game any other way? Do people just not realize that there are so many other ways to add balance to a game? Well if they don't... there are many other ways.

Now, all the armor has the same damage. A BROM can take out an Abrams, a T-72 can take out an Abrams in 2 shots. All the AFV's are almost the same. They have balanced all the armor so much, that there really is not tactics involved at all. The aircraft for some reason are different though. I guess there wacky rules of reasoning do not apply to aircraft...

So what does this have to do with FH? Well, the core of FH is that you guys are trying to achieve a higher fidelity to how things were in real life and in real life, things were not balanced. A Sherman does not equal a Pz IV, etc etc etc.... and this is what sets FH apart from all the rest. The Counter Strike mindset would like all weapons balanced and I'm sure there are many many people that say FH is bad because it is not V A N I L L A balanced to death.

Congrats on the imminent release of 0.65 :beer: and keeping FH as true to life as possible.

True true.. With balance come the clans and more people, but I d never like FH to be like DC, where it seems that all vehicles of one class are the same code with different models and skins. Surely, this makes balancing far more easy, and will make people be satisfied because they can have a "fair" game where they dont have to fight against unequally stronger opponents... but this is not what FH represents - this will never happen .. at least not with the current team on this earth!

So don't worry. we ll take care of our baby. :)

I don't think that this scenario will ever happen since the FH Devs are some of the biggest realism whores there are!

p.s. realism whore is a compliment to those of you that are not sure.

Cochise, do you really think we have done more than 260 WW2 vehicles to balance them now?...no way, we want all of you sweating inside your cartoon sherman or feeling inside your infamous KingTiger that all your enemies are realizing evil plans to destroy the beast ;)

I'm quite confident in the FH Devs ability to make sure nothing "bad" happens to the mod that would bring it to a lower level in terms of realism. Great job guys!
