How many tuns for battlefront

Postby Big B » Wed Jan 21, 2009 8:13 am

I asked this question on the Matrix forum and haven't gotten a response - so I'll try here -

Does Battlefront have the same 80 turn limit that BiI has?

In my opinion, a scenario should never be longer than 30 turns - because it would take forever to finish a PBEM game!

A scenario may be fine, but as in Battles in Italy - a campaign of much longer is what is desirable for a PBEM.

I was campaigning myself for a PBEM patch for BiI that would allow a PBEM game to go over a year ...you know, Sicily to Rome as BiI is made for.

But there is the killer of an 80 turn limit. When I asked for a PBEM-Only patch to allow BiI to go longer - I was told that "Battlefront was the future" and all programing attention was on it - not BiI..

So I was hoping that Battlefront would have addressed that - obviously I was mistaken.

So here we are left with a game that has the potential to be as graet a PBEM Campaign game as Matrix's War in the Pacific (1,576 turns) - but we can't even get Sicily to Rome 44 as a campaign option.

Sigh :(
