Saying that is never played doesn't mean it is never played :) we generalise a lot, it's how development works.

General FH2 game play won't offer you Hyacinth. In plain words: we want it played more.

 Speaking in generalities that discourage players from getting online is never a good idea.
Kind of like how Azreal caused many of us to shit bricks with his resignation posting (which IMO was welcome but not necessarily properly conveyed).

Ah finally we see the objective mode used more... Just like in the good old days of FH... Good job!

Now where are my Battle of Britain and Bombing the Reich?  ::)

 the tournament's did these ages ago, proved that they worked and then got pushed away. We eventually need a "best of tournament's map pack" or perhaps an actual implementation of the Fanmaps (regardless of whether or not 2 dozen beta's and Dev's like them)
My Quebec includes Canada

With the risk of sounding like a broken record, this is probably the 5th time I say this:
When a map is sent / submitted to us that we don't need to do any work on, it's finished from a design, art and tech stand point, and we think it looks great and is fun & balanced to play. A finalized map. We'd add it to the mod, without hesitation.

Maybe I should add this to my sig?

Great update guys! One complaint however: The current image host you are using for those pictures has an assload of ads. Would it be possible to use a different image hosting site next time please?

One way to get around this is opening only one pic, zooming in (if you like ofc) and pressing the arrows for next pics. This way you'll get the hateful popups only once. Popupblockers might achieve success aswell.

Wakain you are right, the blog maker should instead just update the map section on the website and link from there to the blog :) (images hosted on our webserver, not imageshack) I have requested that now. Thanks

WAIT WHAT?

There is nothing to mirror Cromwell VI on totalize, actually. It's a fast vehicle with short barreled cannon which isn't great against armor and not so powerfull as german artillery HEs, so it is nothing to compare with Tiger's 88 canon or Wespe's 105mm.

Looks amazing. I still have a fantasy about having an FH map with the Lancaster bomber (already exists as a BF2 aircraft) with bombing objectives and fighters defending the Lancaster. Axis side could have objective of getting in by sea and sabotaging the airfield  ;D.

That sounds awesome.
Like Bf3 Rush! and I love Bf3 Rush.

A pity that all these modes won't be playable in Coop because they could become my new favorites and I'd want to play them all day long. Well, at least the days Im at home. Damn weak AI.

But looking forward to the experience in MP.

Part of the Coop/SP objectives and push fixes that need to be done are already understood. See Issue 51: Plugins fix for FH 2.4 (Tracking and Issues for Forgotten Hope AI). So here's a call for some Python fixes from FH dev's or interested parties  8).

The 95mm howitzer was not as powerfull as 105mm howitzers but was specially designed for tanks and had a much faster Rate of fire. 7 Rounds a minute where easily achieved in a cromwell, centaur and churchill CS tank.

HE and HESH where the most common rounds. HESH being for bunkers but HESH was quickly found to be devestating against light and medium tanks (Thus an impact on the side of a PZIV should have deadly effects)

HEAT was implented in 3-5 rounds per vehicle. Penetration of the HEAT round was 110mm at a 30degree angle. Sufficient to lay waste to PZIV/Stugs. The tiger's frontall hull should take damage, but not the turret. Panther should in theory be immune, even tough the gun mantlet is 100mm thick.
Sides of these tanks are paper tough  ;D

Both British CS, sherman 105 and StUH 42 there HE shell should damage tanks tough.
