The comment was not meant as a critic. I am actually very interested in how it will work out. The tools are certainly there, the only questions is, if the weapons can be made to bear. E.g. open fields, which are easy to camp, or if there are sneaky routes and stuff.

Nice work on the map.

There is a quite complex net of trenches for the infantry to hide around the flags, village areas give a lot of cover, there is a fair amount of AT guns available for the russian too. I believe tanks will keep themselves busy enough to let some infantry sneak near them every now and then.

That is the prettiest map I've seen for some time. I love the lighting

By the way. Good name for the news. I just read about the encounter at ogledow. Will this be featured in the map somehow?

No, but you can hide behind the haystacks.

Will there actually be a rideable horse? That would be amazing! Also, is there an estimated release date for the next update?

Damn it. I was hoping for a haystack with a 85mm gun  ;)

Oh, okay. Is there an estimated release date for the next patch? Also, can you guys upload it online because the FH2 Launcher doesn't work for me, only the FH2 installer. Thanks! :)

No. There never is. It will be released when it's ready

 Map looks very sharp.

Will there be AT kits with mines and a plethora of mobile AT guns to combat the plethora of tanks?

Unlimited mine kits. In fact, if I am on the Russian side the first round we play this, my first action will be writing "MINE FUCKING EVERYTHING" in team chat.
Also you get the 57mm mobile AT gun, which can penetrate a KT from the side, just need to hide it somewhere.

No. There never is. It will be released when it's ready

But this map has been in the works for like two years at least. What's the point of announcing it now without announcing a date?

Also, is the update going to coincide with the changes to the Dukla pass?

By the way, it's cool to remember that the Finland map with planes from the conspiracies thread is still somewhere there. Ogledow proved out to be a pleasant surprise.

This map will come out with the changes to Dukla.

Right now there are other things in the works that the devs want to add to this release that aren't finished. Once those things are finished, there will be a release.
