I wonder if WEGO is the only practical option for MP, or if it's just the preferred option for pro users. I like the umpire with the god-like powers, though. That'd come in handy for something like a meta campaign.

This looks like it is clearly following in the footsteps of TacOps 4, which militaries used before but which is stalled. TacOps 4 is a WEGO game with a god-like umpire. (An awesome one at that)

I think you are probably right that the professional users either prefer WEGO or at least are used to it to the point where they can't easily change all their procedures, training, materials etc.

I've been spending a little more time with CMO the last few weeks and I have to say, this game really needs multi-player. 

By multi-player, I mean MP for the regular user, not just the "professional edition" nonsense.

Looks like there's a pretty decent discount on the CMO DLC's.  I'm thinking of picking up the Northern Inferno and Silent Service DLCs.

I picked up a bunch of the Live scenarios on the sale. Spent about $10.

Thanks for pointing this out. I always forget about the DLCs until after the sale. I just picked up six.

   I got the game.  I played some CMANO in the editor long ago.  I'm going to try to get dragons simulated better.  IN CMANO, they did blow up Crete in 1962 reasonably well with nukes...but it seemed like overkill.  They never quite worked as Vulcan bombers in CMANO I don't think.  Seems they would have lots of ECM.
