What more do you need to know than:
This is called foliage, you hide behind it.  That is called a big cat, you crap yourself and wait for the fireflys.

But seriously, you won't believe just how close you can be to the enemy and neither you nor they know it.  The grass ninja rises again.

Mybe something like "do not charge your firefly head on into the path of a Tiger tank. These tanks are no equal matches. You will get blown to pieces"

Yknow, to help the uneducated  :P

Ok, here's the truth:

1) I want a training video that features an American soldeir like sarge was Brit for North Africa
2) It makes for a good package addition for the game.
3) It will be tres cool to see a normandy training video outlining the stuff specific to that theater
4) It serves for very good promo by outlining specifc features and game-play about FH, rather just showing ingame action
5) I can guess what it should contain, but this will be guessing... The above reasons are the real deal

However, if it needs purpose, here goes:
1) Use of new antitank weapons - not just how to fire them, but tactics employed for their proper deployment
2) Ambush tactics in hedgerows, using deployable MG and mortar, ambush tactics in towns and buildings
3) I would say house to house fighting techniques, but I'll leave that for another update with more built up towns
4) Combined arms tactics... Calling in air-support, using tanks against more deadly opponents, tank and infantry-together training, coordinating artillery with ground forces
5) Infantry tactics.. Suppression and maneouver tactics... will be a shitload more useful if *AHEM* all weapns had some degree of supression... but still useful notwithstanding
6) Entrenching and defense tactics


* same goes for concept art... I can't give a logical reason why I'd suggest it, but like the British Charge and the Supercharge concept art, I sure will like such a thing for Normandy... Or a propaganda woman like the DAK babe McGibs did for FH2 North Africa

you can actually can call the Firefly and Tiger equal.

Both can destroy eachother with one shot

 ;D Thanks for reply, Toddel.

I'm also wondering if we are going to have a burst of news updates in the upcoming weeks.

Wooohoo for FatJoe! You lucky son of a gun ;).

And for everyone doubting Totalize balance: just don't. It's a great map!

It better be one shot

Tiger's frontal armor=100MM
17PDR=140MM armor penetration at 500 Meter range    131MM armor penetration at 1000meter range Thats for the standard APCBC round
The APDS round had 209MM penetration, but only made up 6% of the totall ammo layout

Imo, The Firefly should have a few APDS rounds. They where as rare as PZG 40, but became common in late 1944.

Amazing update, as usual!   :o

But the BIG news for me, is that 2.2 release is coming soon.

Why has no one else pounced on this yet?

...time constraint: This project was started in May-2009 and to make the release in 2-3 months including testing of the map a more radical apporach to mapping was needed....


The next is simple math. When is two to three months after May? I got start posting in this forum more if you guys can't keep the release speculation stoked!

Seriously though, congrats fat joe, doubly so since you are only a simple Icelander.

Too bad about no Charlie Sector in this release. That's ok though, it will come, it will come.
