Re: Balance Issues 1942 2nd Ed. Re-Visited

Could you elaborate on why you are not a fan of the Russian bomber? I've heard some people say this before, but haven't heard any arguments or explanations as to the reasoning. I guess if you just aren't into it, that's fair, but I was curious if there was some kind of major gameplay downside or bre...

Thanks man. It's cool to honor the past, by also making sure the next generation can put things in context :D

There are currently 7 such tiles on the map. Sinkiang, Greenland, We...
