G'day Gunner24 mate, its been a long time eh? I try and get a few games in for every release, but this one v7.2 has really stood out for me, even compared to 7.1. Hit the artillery problem and just had to rummage around to find my old copy of Pack File Manager (PFM) to see if I could tweak them back into life :)
I'm still running my old PC - stumped up at the time for a top-of-the-line i5 and though aging now, its held its own pretty well for many years. Old Nvidia card is even older again though, so it struggles, but with the right tweaking it performs well enough, just can't have all the settings on Ultra

I know what you mean. The game itself isn't too quick, its nicely balanced now imho and the way the team have managed unit exhaustion has slowed down the pace of the whole game in a much more enjoyable way, without taking away the ability to do things and react to emergencies at the local level.
Having said that, I've been orbiting this community for what? 15 years? No longer as young as I was hehe, big battles with 3 or 4 fronts to manage are not easy and I wouldn't be even close to competitive in MP. In fact, if I can squeeze out some spare time and enjoy some MP games it will be as part of the New Players League (NPL).
Oh, got to say, the work Lepic has done with the modern LoV is fantastic! Really seriously good stuff and I'm sure has injected considerable energy back into the community. The automated nature of it, and the inclusion of battle replay files is a much enjoyed resource.
So big props to the whole Lordz team, they are doing a really top notch job, much respect.
