Finally beat the scenario.

Tried staying hidden as much as possible and only firing with the Shermans when I had a flank shot.

I'll have to try that. 

I tried it.  Hid in the orchard mostly.  Took every possible shot even with Shermans (but at the hull if I had the choice).  Had some very lucky hits and misses.  Only lost one M10 and had zero personnel loses (the crew bailed when the gun was knocked out and then the Germans finished the TD with a barrage of wasted shots, plus the smoke was extremely helpful versus approaches on the road to the orchard).  Whew!  After 8-9 tries!

The Troop was released today into early access.....$40.  I'll probably hold off a bit as I am not sure I'll get that value out of it.

The price point is a real surprise. It's well outside the mark of other games in its class/genre, particularly for early access. There seems to be a lot of surprise and disappointment over the price in the forums and in gaming facebook groups. There was a lot of excitement over this release and the price appears to have killed much of it. I think the developers made a fairly large mistake here and have turned off a lot of potential buyers. Would have been an instant buy in the $19 - $24 range.

+1, instant buy at $25....  Doesn't seem feature rich enough to warrant $40. In holding pattern as well...

Oh my.  Yeah, I agree. 

I mean, I don't mind spending on new games, I'm a game whore, but that Demo isn't going to convince me to drop $40.
