Default What type of pbem games you prefer ?

What type of battles are you or your group usually playing ?

Are house rules used in your game group ?

Especially interested how other people deal with air sorties and artillery.

I haven't played PBEM in a few years now.
Usually campaigns with zero cluster, max size map, random air, fast artillery OFF, animation on.
From the above, everything but battle size and air is usually not negotiable by me.

Random air works by having air sorties set as XXX

A PBEM campaign with you? That takes a long time and you do need the CD version of the game. Do you have it?

If your interested in playing PBEM via Campaign's you'll need to purchase the CD, it's well, WELL worth the cost for both games.

Dunno, never fancied any of the features but the thought so far have been to support the creators.

Well you'd need the CD for PBEM CG, Extended Map Editor, Special or added Op Fire settings, Timed Victory Objectives and I am sure I missed a few.

Plus better/higher screen resolutions, Tournament play, Extended Scenario and Campaign tools, Encyclopaedia sorting, Formation IDs, Increased Playscreen Info, Improved and larger mini-map, Take Cover!, Increased artillery types, Georgia OoB, Programmed Artillery, NLOS weaponry, Middle mouse "View all", etc.


This is a VERY WORTHWHILE investment!

Anything goes but I'd prefer if you don't use trucks as ATGM bait.
