Patch 1.3 killed the game for me. The allies have so much advantage over Axis it's unbelievable.
Smoke = Star Wars forceshield.
Axis Tank Traps = Bowling pins
Calliopes = Forceshield wielding arty
AT guns = stupidly accurate and more powerful than flak 88's? Something doesn't seem right.
I mean really, and people say Tigers are overpowered? Have you not seen the pershing? Not to mention that if this game was even close to historical truth, the Tiger would rip open a sherman in a hit.
I refuse to continue playing this game online until it's at least actually "balanced". Where Axis don't get screwed in the rear in every way possible. If I knew any better, I would think that they just want Allies to win because of the all mighty american flag.
Codename Panzers Phase One at least was accurate where a single tiger would *GASP!* Kill a sherman in 1-2 hits! And *GASP!* Flak 88's devoured tanks like a fatty let loose on an all you can eat deep fried dough factory.
Maybe if the Sherman in this game was represented by a T34 model I would understand why the hell it's so hard to kill and why i pull my tigers back so much.
And where did all the trash talking kids come from? When this game was first released I never had a problem until now. Replays should record text in game. Or Relic should have some way of reporting abusers. Come to think of it, I think I'm going to go back to playing games online with my xbox360, at least live has that wonderful *avoid player* button, and the great *REPORT* button.
Any thoughts of how the game has progressed thus far?
