^ Actual combat game play looks a lot like CoH2.

I noticed Quill streaming last night but didn't have the time to watch the entire video.  At least not enough to post my opinions about the campaign at this moment.

I was a bit surprised that the first thing I heard about this was your post and minutes later Twitch suggested that stream of a playable game by Quill.

So far the AI does not use tanks much. Which makes it a little easy in the battles I have fought so far.

I notice their is an mixed African American Bazooka unit for the Americans that a huge thread is in progress about on the forums. I have no problem with that. In fact I wish the devs went back to the coh2 commander model and made a commander that turned all your troops into African Americans so you could play the all African 92nd. That way it would be a little more realistic. The debate has made me interested to know what the percentage of African Troops was though. I think 1.2 million African Americans served in ww2, but only a tiny percentage of those were allowed into combat roles. It is hard to find statistics on how many actually fought as front line soldiers. I remember a movie about Hellcat Tank Destroyer units and Artillery units.

Not sure if you guys can see the thread.....

Thought game release was targeted for late 2022 so not sure what else might be happening

Probably an alpha test run of the multiplayer portion of the game.

Yep. They are going to have side armour values this time around as well as breaching, which was in the last alpha.
You will be able to play vs the AI in the multiplayer alpha which is good.

Breaching reminds me a lot of Command and Conquer: Generals.  Looking forward to this one now that I'm getting my RTS hat back on.

EDIT - Tactical pause in single player = YES PLEASE!

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.
