    FH2 Campain variant: VEHICLE ONLY ( minor infantry)

    a thing me come into my mind in a lonely night was :


    why not to revive FH2 with a new variant of a campaign:



    + mostly vehicles (tanks, jeeps, guns, airplanes, (ships) )


    - less infantry ( more with specialist supplies (engineers, flag capping forces , massive AT gun defensives)




    for example for 30-40 players (beginning : lower numbers if we get a full server just double the numbers then) :


    • 10 vs 10 tanks or 15 vs 15 ( with balancing 6 vs 10 or 8 vs 12 tanks depends on type )
    • masses of jeeps - ( to rush specialist from flag to flag --- spotting )
    • masses of anti tank guns ( a squad should be able to defend a tank attack on flag zone with 4- 6 guns) ( every flag zone should have masses of anti- weapons)
    • masses of specialist kits ( that enables a 4-6 infantry squad to ambush a 2 tank tag team)
    • variant can involve aerial aspects - airplanes - bombers etc - & AA Guns/Vehicles (reviving our custom air maps)
    • can involve naval aspects - as special events - reviving our custom naval maps
    • ...etc...etc
    • .....more ideas welcome




    this would be very attractive and for sure a lot of fun

    what you think ?


    also it can be a kind of event variant to test if it works ? (any mapper interested doing a demo map?)

    I find it interesting!
    Would be nice to go back to FH2 IMO.
    Yeah, it would be nice to give it a "test" first by creating an event first.

    Re: FH2 Campain variant: VEHICLE ONLY ( minor infantry)

    I'm not so sure the lack of general access to vehicles in the 3 previous FH2 campaigns was the reason why the numbers were waning (or so I've been told they were, compared to the past, anyway).

    Sounds like a great idea for a short, "blast from the past", nostalgic campaign in the future, however... Campaign 33 or later, perhaps ?

    Re: FH2 Campain variant: VEHICLE ONLY ( minor infantry)

    If you really want this type of thing, download and check out the maps we have for Custom Sundays:
    http://bfewaw.com/showthread.php?t=291883

    Many of the 32 player size maps are tank heavy because I reduced the play area but kept the same number of tanks as the 64 size.
    Kefalonia has naval assets.
    I can easily patch these maps in the future to include more tanks and other equipment you may want.
    We can start doing this on Sundays immediately with the current maps. There are at least 5 tank heavy maps with reduced size and 9 64 size maps that are tank heavy if you have 20-40 players.
    There are over a dozen pubby players that already have these maps but have lost interest due to low numbers. If we can get some actual WaW guys to participate, we might be able to get 20+.

    You should seriously have a look at them.

    Re: FH2 Campain variant: VEHICLE ONLY ( minor infantry)

    Campaign 33 or later, perhaps ?
    You know, in addition to changing "platforms" we really need to start thinking about changing the single game/single consecutive campaign model. It may seem counter-intuitive to split our human resources when we seem to have so few active members at the moment, but having more activities in different games should bring in more people. Many of whom are likely to take part in more than one event. I've seen it work in other communities with worse personality clashes. It can work here too. With our server capacity an Euro-friendly ping, we can make use of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Friday is good for Euros, Saturday for everybody, and Sunday for heathens and Euros(heathens!). Let's not be afraid to think outside the box.

    As for Maemph's idea, the difficulty of FH2 tanking and suckiness of being tank fodder makes it inappropriate for Campaign 29 or Campaign 33 IMO. However, it would be a good mini-campaign that could be more loose in it's organization and defy some tournament conventions. For example, teams can play both sides and more than one map in a day. As I've mentioned above, Custom Sundays can probably accommodate this idea fairly quickly and easily. You would need TA approval of course. I can help with the work for you.

    ** if this suggestion turns into lengthy discussion of details, we might want to take it here: http://bfewaw.com/showthread.php?t=291721 **

    Here are the minimaps of the reduced size maps with same number of tanks.
    You really should download and check them out.
