Captain_Colossus Posted November 29, 2014 Share Posted November 29, 2014 Had we pulled back to a less exposed BP (and maybe even reloaded), we could have continued the mayhem quite a bit longer.That's like saying you could have won the race if only you averaged faster times. But you may have got more kills because perhaps you didn't abandon your precarious position sooner, and that's what got you killed. If anyone wants to really test their skills with any of the Western tanks, go back and play the original Demo_Attack mission that was included with the original Steel Beasts. I'm not sure I could win that scenario with Challenger 2 tanks, and I know where all the enemy positions are, what their triggers are, where they are expected to be at all times, and it's still extremely difficult because of a nasty time limit imposed. The Blue player is on the attack and has to travel several kilometers while fighting along the way. You have to play on the run and pretty much win within a razor thin envelope of time remaining. There's not enough time to do anything but start attacking right out of the gate, when you take into account times you have to stop to re-load or to avoid artillery or get into battles with infantry, you have to rush- and that usually leads to mistakes and you start taking losses, even when you know exactly where the threats are coming from and theoretically how to avoid them.So the Challenger swapped out for the default Leopards would have a difficult time. The Challenger is slower, and in this mission you're not defending open ground. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
