    Some people in the chat have said that they are working on the servers so problems may be gone in the next few days. We can only hope.

    Sorry chap, at the time of posting my one saying it was fine i went on and struggled to get a game.. so the Americans must have come on.. but it was fine this morning time.

    Had a crazy battle though when i did get a game on the trainyard 2v2 map. My mate was a bit of a noob so we struggled and they were clearly good but the amount going on the entire scenery was decimated in the middle.. quality stuff.

    Rerading around this happened last weekend and everything cleared up Monday morning once the servers had been rebooted and the yanks were at work.

    I had a try a couple of days ago, been ahiles ince i played an online rts, last was Age of Mythologies, 1st game was a 2v2, i got totally slaughtered as my team m8t buggered off and id forgoting to build a barracks, was running around with quite a few flamer engis :eek:. I dont think ive got the right mentality for games likes these as i like to build up my defenses 1st before leaving my base to kill ppl. :(

    me and gord had two games in a row, was a bit bumpy at first, with two crashes but ingame it runs pretty fine. Lots of fun.

    Its so awsome to see the aftermath of a battle, one second its a peacefull french village with little buildings and a few germans, the next its a big crater thanks to gord and his howitzer army :S.

    Another tip, if you see a little tracked remote control vehicle heading to your squad of engies or riflement... or any of your units, run, because those things blow up with such force, it has to have been the biggest single explosion i saw in the two games we played.

    Thats why the games so good and why i went ballistic at some moron in the lobby who went .."oh no, not another CNC clone".. the game forces you to go out and win those points if you dont you lose.

    Neildo's and mine games were pretty good. We wiped the normal enemies clean and the hard ones the same until my tinternet disconnected.

    I got one game last night 2v2 and got slaughtered.
    I am picking it up though but i just don't seem to build up quick enouth to get my Armour. I am odviously doing something wrong but once the servers settle down i will be able to have a few games in a row and get properly to grips with this little beauty.
    I am so looking forward to a well matched 3v3 it hurts.
    For me and my BF2 head it's like a mini BF2 army that i control. Like a cartoon war with my little troopers steaming about. I really do love the feel of this game. :cool:


    Feel free to add me to MSN those that are enjoying it.
