This game is an old relic from and a great game, but a great game with flaws.
AI get arty way more often than you on every battle, they can spam troops quicker, their arty is apparently more accurate than yours at times, the barbed wire which houses mines work on you but apparently don't work on them when they try to go past it, morale is a weird thing - loose a couple of squads and your troops surrender, the enemy can keep loosing squads and they will never loose enough morale, at the last mission all of it combines to making it a tedious effort to just get to the trenches through 3 patches of barbed wire that can kill your tanks as soon as they step on it or they can go all the way with no problem.

Overall it's still a great game from the past which rememberI playing when I was younger.
Although being forced to play on another site just to play as the Germans is kind of annoying.

I like this game. It is cool game!

Seems like a really good game. Unfortunately I cannot play it much since it's rather glitchy and laggy, and the game was certainly right when it noted how unfair war is considering my fully upgraded artillery/airstrikes are lucky to get a single hit into a trench or a squad, but three of my squads can get completely annihilated by a single mortar.

Perhaps work on balancing issues?

Having a battle be difficult is fine.

Having a battle be nigh only winnable through wearing down the enemy's morale in a 45 minute session is just tedious.

this game is awesome! great theme, concept and overall fun game. keep up the great work!

You Guys Should do More War Games.
