"Today's update will focus around the soldierly-side of things, but in the next few days we will also be revealing how the tanks and aircraft have changed in FH 2.4 as well." <3

just FYI  rifle grenades will have a crosshair, but it wont be a precision instrument  but works well enough to get elevation sorted out.  we tested without rifle grenade crosshair and that just didnt worked out.

removal of the crosshair promotes SMGs in CQC over the previous dominant semi auto rifles.  sure you can still spam with he semi rifles but wont be that effective as before.

as for hürtgen,  this is one intense map. often the words PR-like fell in teamspeak the environment can be your best friend and your worst enemy. a single hidden MG42 gunner can tear apart the whole enemy team if they run around in the woods. on the other side sneaking through the woods can give you great cover for flanking attacks.
combined with the new color correction filters that help blending in the environment laying ambushes is a very viable option in a well coordinated defense.

aircraft changes will be great but the big shitbricking thing will be the revised tank combat.

Oh hell yea!... what an update, sadly now no update will satisfy me untill the one where i can DL FH2.4 ;D

The map looks great, really dense forest fighting, and the awards will be for all servers now! no more playing the same 7 or whatever maps in a row on 762

Removal of crosshair- love the sound of it

and new mroe immersive movement- sounds very promising
can any devs say what kind of specific changes have been made?
i.e. is it like pr where your momentum carrys you a bit when you stop moving forward and you move slower overall? or something completely differnt?

Wow. I expect that few people will reach some of the Gold medals, but at least there's always a challenge for everyone. Artillery might be the easiest to achieve :p

Player physics, not sure if want, have to try first.

No crosshair = we don't want to make FH play like PR, amirite? /troll

Srsly, this is a good change and means that finally melee weapons will be used instead of two riflemen circle strafing each other and firing from the hip. Now all we need is some female playermodels once the Eastern Front rolls in. Tulis kaameita lähitaisteluita, khihihihi.

Hürtgenwald, I would have gone without the OOB zones in the forest and just relied on the push system.  This has the danger of turning into another Ramelle. At the very least, I would have done parts of map inaccessible with minefields and natural obstacles instead (a bit like how Mareth Line has been made), but we shall see.

EDIT: Friday = payday and the beginning of a three-week summer vacation! Yay!

Im not afraid that Hürtgen will turn into ramelle, tunis or Point du hoc.
It looks too large with too many stuff to hide behind, and too many different ways.
Just take Purple heart lane, its a hard map but not even such a meatgrinder like tunis or pdh-

The areas marked red are actually minefields with uncrossable obstacles around them.
