Says you can select 3, but I select them all. That reads like a top list of many of my favorite maps! Some just because they were very different/unique, others because I consider them masterpieces of re-playability.

I have not played FH1 for much time, but from these maps, Fall Weiss, Eastern Blitz and Kharkov Outskirts stand out. The first ones for their uniqueness: the Poland Campaign is not a common feature in any game, and I just love the Polish AFVs and the general landscape.

Kharkov is one of the most polished maps in FH1 (at least among those I knew), and full of historical background. Actually, it's a stupend choice for a map, a fundamental moment in the Eastern Front. Maybe we could see something like this portrayed in FH2 someday...

Best regards,

Hard to choose, but Alpen Festung brought so many good lasting memories.

I remember the routine of flying another player (Stickybomb!) armed with sniper rifle to the barn downhill from the church. I'd run for the grashopper, he'd go for the sniper rifle near one of the tents in the base. I'd wait on the runway, then we'd fly low, tracking the river, under the bridge (with dead jerry paratrooper nearby), dodge enemy AA fire, then land on the little field next to the barn. He'd bail and hide in the barn, then picking off infantry and spotting tanks with binocs. With luck I could turn the plane and take off before jerry could respond. So much fun!  ;D

I'd also admit surprise-launching a few unsuspecting friendly tanks/APCs using the 30cal kit bug from the bridge at allied base.  ;D I'd hide in the bushes near the bridge, wait for vehicles and then run, dive and quickly deploy the .30 . For those who didn't know, driving over a manned .30 would mess up the physics and eject the vehicle forwards. There was a hill there shaped just so the vehicle would land in the axis airfield. Even scored a few kills that way.  :P I got some stern admin warnings for that one. ;D

Sad to hear about ArminAce... RIP

And its no surprise...alpenfestung for sure. After a year of playing the realistic map, getting on that crazy alpenfestung map was just the perfect party for me.

Feels a bit like a 'dirty pleasure' thing, but I'd have to go for Alpenfestung. Good times.
Then again, I don't seem to be alone in this.
