Re: Battle of Heilsberg (1807)

I have to agree with this -
SQUARE shape that is all what player need to know.
Square shape, and that`s it.


Really, is it so hard to know what a damn square looks like ?.

Re: Battle of Heilsberg (1807)

All the LCS is for is to abstractly show the time delay of forming an actual square Completely correct, and a large part of why LCS was "invented" in the first place. my square was shaped like a square but it wasnt exactly square enough for others. If the square shape was shaped like a sq...

Re: Battle of Heilsberg (1807)

That seems fair enough...... But, two questions for anyone interested - 1. If a square is not square enough, how can a column be more square than a square ?. 2. Anything that is a square can be squared with the magic button, so if a non square column can be magic squared, why can a square (which is ...

Re: Battle of Heilsberg (1807)

With several years "hindsight" this rule should have been called, line/square ......forget the column, as it's that bit that can cause confusion............if in line or column, or fat line, or anything else......and you want to go to a square, why not......... change to a shape that looks...

Re: Some notes about illegal squares in LCS games

I am not sure we ever really had a very strict interpretation that the square should not be formed until the halted column had actually performed the very last dressing of lines manoeuvre, I always tried very hard to make sure I adhered to this but did on a few occasions failed miserably :sad: impo...

Re: Histwar Christmas Discount !

It's such a tiny niche that I can't ever see that game taking off beyond the community it currently has. You may well be right, after 5 years it gets harder to say otherwise !!!. But, in scope and depth, you have to admit (???) that what else compares to HW ?...or as I have said before, what will e...

I hope your right, but I think your wrong, their games are generally lesser quality.......I doubt they will ever generate anything on the same scale as HW, but I would be very happy to be proved wrong.....the more good game to pick from the better.

Gunner, I am amazed at your ability to dig up an old and rotting corpse and bring it to life, especially your own.

If you bothered to read, you would have seen other people brought up the NBC topic - and I replied to their comments.

Tac so why the sudden shift in faith i wonder. Not really correct, I can not play a MP game if NO ONE else plays it, that's all. That is why NBC closed, and that is why Lancier's FG closed, because of zero interest from the English speaking Community. Da Motta Looks like you guessed what the prize ...

Same crap wrapped in a different package

Not often Tac and I agree, but, not that I care, you have to wonder how much longer they can keep getting away with this.......years and years more I guess, as they keep selling zillions of copies.

better put ntw4 on ice until 2016/17.
