New WW2 strategy game!

Post by Kaisertreue » 04 Nov 2002 21:15

Those clever chaps who brought us 'Europa Universalis' have done it again! Now they've come up with global WW2 strategy game. Take a look:

[Dear Timo, I take it that by your closure of the 'blondes extinct' thread you have acknowledged that I prevailed in the discussion.]

Der Alte, Timo closed your thread because he rightly couldn't stomach your offensive and racist statements. I think that
if you continue along those lines, you may eventually "prevail" yourself off of this Forum.

Oh dear, my heart bleeds for Timo :mrgreen:

Note that I am fully entitled to my views, which are not racist and offensive at all, and I will refuse to be silenced by the politically correct. However, if my opinions hurt the delicate sensibilities of some persons on this forum, I will refrain from airing them here in future.

Best regards.

..............let's get back to the subject of this thread.

There is an interesting discussion forum on 'Hearts of Iron' here:

Is that another one of your non-offensive statements?

Looks interesting. I hope it has a really good diplomacy feature. Most engines are very one-dimensional in that regard.

Yes the failure of almost all games in their genre happen because of the flat and static diplomacy features. Without the chance to change alliance such as a German/UK alliance it will be less then desired. I do not play historical games to just follow the timeline but to change things to fit my views.

I will tell you one game that is really good diplomacy and that is Total War: Medieval .

Of course the Europa games were pretty good diplomacy, from marriages and peace treaties with demands on the loser such as land annex, military alliance, to casus belli, vassals, and of course Trade monopolization of markets. :)

I don't care much for the grand-scale games, as having such will enevitably rule out some of the details.

I like strategy better (like PGII)

Okay, I'd appreciate that. I'd love to get the entire Forum off the Race issue.

Yes I posted something on it awhile ago before my absence. I think it could be great assuming the troops are animated. The graphics are not much but everything else looks awesome!

Yes but this game is from the leadership point of view. Hitler, Stalin, Churchie, and Roosevelt.
