I'm just running around the map offline, and I noticed the tank squad leader role was available to pick, and a tank commander was available too. Also, when I spawn in as a tank, I get kicked out of the map, saying incompatible version. I don't know if the same thing happens online.

Great map! Played about 3 half hour rounds on it and the battles never ceased to amaze me. The city part of the map is outstanding, open, long streets, buildings tall fat and wide. At first I thought 14 objectives was a overload but we actually ended up losing twice! Had a lot of fun with the [RGN] folks and all the community map makers too, even Ramm himself showed up :p

The only things I ask of this map are:

-More time: We stretch the map out through the 45 minutes with a pretty mid-filled server (30-40 guys) and the thing is, we don't know this map. So imagine when the defenders actually do know what positions and choke points to work, might need more time for it. Do note that this could possible change due to the lack of arty and smoke being used when I played.

-Take tanks out: The Germans did damn well without them. Just doesn't seem like too much of a CA map. Definitely add halftracks in there when they release though!

-Fix the squad list: There are only like 13 or so people on the squad list. It isn't displaying all the class slots properly.

Other than that I see this map being as popular as Bridges. This really is THE map for 64 player slaughter :) :IS2:

A and B has a few problems as you know. My suggestion is a fallback spawn when one cap is taken. Then bring back forward spawns when Russian take back lost caps.

Foliage is floating some as you probably know.

The lighting is funny in some buildings as it disappears as you get close.

There should be more broken vehicles for cover in the roads. People used to live here I assume and arty destroyed the area so their stuff should be laying around.

Great map!

I'd hold off balancing the map for now, on caps like A and B. The map is in a really early state and we need to see how the map plays with the tank first, if you decide to keep it in the map, and the arty. Personally, I'd like to see it stay, but I know there are some people against it. The fallback spawn that danh suggested is a good idea, but we should see how it plays when the arty is added. One arty on the building at B would effectively clear it out, which was where all the Russians were holed up in.

Do you plan on giving the German team a tank? It would help them capture H and I. It was on those two objectives that the attackers had the most trouble when I played yesterday.

This map is generating an unusual amount of interest on our server.
I think that is noteworthy for a public that seems to prefer sandpapering a wildcat's *** in a phonebooth rather than to download a new map. I got a good feeling about this one. :D

:cool:

I just finished some in-depth reading on the battle of the Myshkova River.
This battle was pivotal because it was the only chance of salvage the Stalingrad salient had. And it was desperate. If Paulus had initiated a free for all breakout attempt by Dec 19th, it may have been possible for a significant number of 6th Army troops to reach German lines. Unfortunately, this didn't happen.
Hoth was stopped cold at the Myshkova bridge-head and that was the end.

The principal Divisions present in the area was 6th Panzer, 17th Pzg, and 23rd Panzer. These were opposed by 3rd Guard mechanized, and later 1st Guards Rifle and 7th Tank corps. One of the Bridge-head towns was called Nizhe Kumsky.

I'm not sure when the beta will be released, but the presence of some tanks on both sides should be necessary for any degree of historical accuracy.

We've had this map up and running for days......

Tanks are questionable in this map as we've found the infantry combat excellent. The map does support a tank but unfortunately, it kills you when you attempt to use it.

Besides, tanks have tendency to ruin a good infantry map by forcing concentrated battle centered against and around the tanks. Consequently, the "combined" arms is seriously diluted. IMHO, this map would be better off without tanks.

Understood. I'm mentioning this for historical perspective only. It wasn't simply one battle anyway, but a series of actions along the river and around the bridgeheads. It's entirely possible there were instances of largely infantry
/Panzergrenadier actions. It's a great map, and the ultimate choices are entirely up to the Dev.

Actually, up to the Rekrut and the Admins.... ;)
