your realities man, where do you find them
Where do I find them, "man"? I am just talking about something that happened to me no later than yesterday. A twin Marder Roland section I had on Joint Ops that missed its first shoot while in the open against Mi24As, got rocketed, pinned down, and still managed to kill the buggers in the end. Yes, Marder armor does provide the little something that will make you invest a few more bills, and it can be useful. And by the way, FYI, Tunguski, even twined, sometimes happen to die under chopper rockets too...
I may even have the replay, just like you have the replays of utter AAA/SAM failure. Because the game isn't Starcraft, it's highly based on probabilities, and that even with Vetted guys, you can very well come across heroic deeds in a game, and despicable odds in another.
But just don't expect everyone with another opinion than yours to be a casual talker just because it suits your agenda better.
i maintian that the best AA on NATO side are the LAAD stinger, i wonder why you didn't even touch infantry at all in your little essay?
Maybe because I am strangely knowledgeable enough to know that "Manpads" stands for "Man-Portable Air Defense Systems"...? Seriously are you for real?!
Again, please refrain from criticizing it with such aggressiveness if you couldn't even notice I mentioned "in my little essay" a system whose acronym was obviously unknown to you, and didn't even make you raise an eyebrow. It makes the community look like a band of forever unsatisfied grumpy folks.
Listen: I don't play that game to have my fun spoiled in my forum backyard by people who obviously never touched a simulation and still rage about game balance or realism. You and a truckload of others don't like it? Well fine, leave it to us, we'll take good care of it, my "friend". I can play (end enjoy) TacOps and Steel Beasts and still appreciate W:EE a lot for what it is without overly criticizing it - if you can't do any of it, why even bother playing this stuff at all?? Play games that make you happy, it's much better for the health. True story.
