It's more about technology - big maps arent good if you are a walking army, even if you give yourself 80 turns. An APC based army has less problems with distance. An army based on Churchill nfantry tanks would have the same problem with vast open plains as the footsloggers.

And especially in MBT, as you progrees through the decades, your basic kit (tanks and APC etc) costs rise noticeably, so a 2000 point 1950 army would be far larger numbers-wise than a 2020 2000 point army. 2000 Points in 1950 may well get you a batallion and in 2020 maybe a leg rifle company team.

I use an 80x80 map for WW2 since my grunts march.

I use the default map size for MBT, and fight about a battalion sized task force.

There is also the factor of weapons reach - modern MBT can engage at distances a WW2 tank cannot dream of. So an 80x80 map might seem to be the choice if your force is walking, but if they are supported by a platoon of MBT, and/or the opponent has them then maybe it would be a bit point blank.

So - "how long is a piece of string" is the question you are really asking here!.
Fair enough lol. I will stick with my general guesstimations

Thanks. The problem now is that the edit button disappeared.
Another query. How do I add an image to a post to make it look bigger?

Personally I used an online free system called Imgur and take a screen shot in normal game mode and then save it up there and used the bbcode option I think to put a link here like so:



Here is the bbcode option:

I don't see the edit buttons on those two posts. In the other yes.

The edit button only remains available for a limited time for each post (around 20 mins I think) this is standard for most forums

That's what I thought that's why I saw other old posts and the button is there.
Maybe when I hit the button just once something happened.....
