Just looking to gauge interest in the soon (next month as I write this) to be released V4 late war kits such as 'Hit the Beach'.

I realise there has been a schism in the game since V4 and remember tables and tables full of FoW and TY players at MOAB and as a new V4 recruit am wondering the following.

Do you think;

(a) FoW will remain split with the former version players predominantly sticking to V3
(b) V4 late war will (re)connect the current V3 players with the veteran and newer V4 players once again into a harmonious community (well more harmonious than it is).

Sorry to say, I was having a chat with the flames players at Briscon and they didn't even get enough dudes to get the V4 tournament off the ground, while V3 had dozens of dudes having a blast. Apparently battlefront have semi given up on what they've done with 4 but if they're still releasing stuff for it then I guess its still happening.

Personally I see where battlefront went wrong with V4 and its not the rules, its the dumbed down lists.

Majority of guys have armchair generaled the #### out've WW2 and have their particular units and battles that they love and wanted to build a force around. Its been a labour of love to get the right uniforms, equipment, officer names and often even tank markings. The the africa campaign books dropped and half their options disappeared. I for one lost my quad AAs, pak36r's, stugs, pak 40s and a very large carpark of halftracks that was a huge part of my reason for collecting them in the first place.

Needless to say I wasn't amused, but I like to think I'm one of the few that got over veing butthurt and was happy enough to just get on with it.

Sorry for the rant, I'll stop now.

Cheers man, Ronin

Hi Ronin,

Not a rant at all, pretty informative really.

Yeah, I have a couple of mates who prefer V4 and I'm too green to really know any better. What you mention is exactly the perspective I was looking to quiz.

Shame abut the list being dumbed down, I was thinking/ hoping the command cards would be a way to customise lists. I thought it even had more potential than various book based lists. Guess not.

If the rules are not the issue and it is the lists I still hold hope for V4. Hopefully they do a decent job on the lists for latewar then.

Cheers,

Nathan

I think Wintercon is hoping for 6-12 players for V4, way down from the peak of 40-50 for V3. Hopefully someone is playing it somewhere sad.gif
