    Yeh I thought we'd lost too when we were pushed back from the middle, then I looked back and saw your 3 pounder emplacements. Should've known then that we were gonna be here for a while and gone for a piss :). I liked our little mini breakthrough right at the end as well, I think we captured more ground then than we did in the previous hour. Of course we lost it all 2 minutes later along with the game and it was about 10 metres worth of land, but still :D

    Field Marshal Haig would've be proud with that final push. Chuck everything, punch a hole and then watch it collapse like a flan. :D That other guy did well in keeping them at bay while we tried to flank, considering he had gone infantry. Surprised we didn't end up with a hole to China considering the pounding that area took.

    Do you have any replay files to get some screenies?
    I've watched a few Tales of Heroes vids and your shenanigans sounded like hellish fun :)

    Don't you have to record it before hand? You'd be spending a long time watching though. Took over two hours. :) Not much to see at the front line but complete and utter blackness... and we didn't even have much art support (two pieces IIRC). It all came down to AT vs tanks. Quite amusing at times how one flag changed hands over and over again. I awarded the Victorian Cross to one of my infantry for taking it under heavy fire, alas they met their fate later on.

    N3utr0n came up with the cunning idea of flanking them, which I think we tried three times, twice managing to get to one base and wipe out one HQ, but we didn't have enough population to really push. The whole map, baring our base starting locations, was taken by the Germans for about 2/3 of the game.

    I think you can save a replay of the game at the stats acreen at the end of the game. Forgot to do it for this one and only now realising and regretting it. I do have 2 of our previous 4 player games recorded though, both Allies.

    That other guy did well in keeping them at bay while we tried to flank, considering he had gone infantry.

    I felt bad for him and his poor infantry, desperately holding on and screaming for artillery support, so I built some nice comfy trenches for his troops to hide in :). I think he must've lost more men than the rest of us combined. The population cap was really what killed us, we had well over 5000 requisition points for most of the game.

    That flanking idea probably would've worked if we had 4-6 Fireflies, if they didn't have damned air support and if we didn't bump into Panthers and Marders along the way. Alot of if's. Marders are evil..

    I awarded the Victorian Cross to one of my infantry for taking it under heavy fire, alas they met their fate later on.

    Heh I remember that, you sounded quite proud ;)

    Damn that does sound rather good! I didn't see the Steam messages until I quit FoW and I was calling it a night, looks like that game decided to ignore it and it stayed on my desktop. I'm on Xfire which would have worked.

    I've saved replays of most of the matches we've done, I'll get around to FRAPSing some video and grabbing some screenshots when I've got time, some of the arty carnage needs rewatching. :-)

    Yeah, was fun. :) I think around 1500 infantry died, alongside the 500 vehicles.

    I'll be up for something tonight too, though ideally after the footie.

    Cool. I'll be on around 10pm or whenever this match finishes, so maybe a tad earlier.

    As we couldn't get a game going last night I decided to have a look at some of my replays and FRAPSed this, four minutes of WMV that showed me and Carrot desperately defending the bridge in Best from an onslaught of naughty Nazis!

    I got annoyed by my whinging AT squads though...

    Was that my artillery?

    Played a few skirmishes yesterday and discovered the wonders of the sniper. Great at holding off infantry early in the game... assuming there's a building to use for cover. Tool them up with the volksgrenadiers whose panzerfausts can take out the annoying jeeps.

    Whoo finally got a video uploaded. This is from the same game as Whizzo, just showing one of the first of many back and forths on the right flank VP. Apologies about the shitty quality and spastic camera and weird cuts/transitions.

    The right flank was a real pain to take. :)

    Anyone for game tonight?

    Nope. Just text chat and use the attack/defend requests.

    Up for something in 5 minutes once these CL games are over. Just post in here when you log on. You'll have to setup the game though as the netcode is really weird. If youc an open your ports it'll probably help alot too. :)

    My name ingame is Mikowai.

    Anyone else stuck with torrenting 2500 and 2501 patches? They're taking an age to download.

    Once an eagle taught me courage. And I will never forget that day

    Blimey the new patch rather rejigs the front UI, it practically screams "BUY TALES OF VALOR" at you as large parts have a padlock on it.

    /taps foot waiting for Play to actually deliver the bloody thing

    Well either we've all gone shit, or the AI's been beefed up quite a bit in the ToV patch. That was brutal.

    Very painful indeed, that was more like some turbo-annihilation game!
