Ground unit

Postby Azkaban » Wed May 23, 2007 2:10 pm

I think that a good improvement is to place ground unit such as battalion or armored division......

sorry, will never happen. And I don't agree the game needs it. It's perfectly balanced already.

And expect to be flamed, as this has been up 200million gazillion times already.

Actually, xander has been noticeably quiet around here lately. Perhaps the Mac/Linux ports have kept him busy playing Defcon? (or maybe it's those dang happy pills)

yeah, I thought about it, but I wanted to spare the new guy from an information overload. I mean, 200 million gazillion is pretty big for starters. :wink:

Since when do we spare people who can't use the search function? ;)

yeah, I agree, but 200 million gazilion is still a big number to contemplate. Give him a week or two. Hey Azkaban, wanna borrow my Cray?

Never fret, the cavalry's always here in his absence!

Azkaban: If you haven't already gathered, preferably search before you make suggestions to see it anyone has brought it up before. In short, the general consensus is that ground units would overcomplicate the game while adding little to it strategically.

IMHO- most nuclear wargames and scenarios imagineable are strategic in nature. The use of a few armored divisions or infantry units is pretty irrelavent when your slinging hundreds or thousands of 500kt + nuclear warheads around the world.

I agree with the other posters- trying to include ground units would muck things up a lot. Don't know what it would accomplish anyway.

There HAVE been tactical wargame simulations that involved local, limited use "tactical" nukes, but those were not the city-killers that a global thermonuclear war would use.

Armored divisions would have use... if they invented the flying that that can intercept a missle by kamakazi.
