Good Afternoon.

Thanks for accepting me into FGM.

An avid gamer and big WW2 fan. Ex member of webandofbrothers where I spent many years playing CMX1 games (CMBO,BB and AK). Fell out of love with the game after many years, many tournaments and campaigns and just became burnt out.

Re-invigorated a few weeks ago, after stumbling back into Battlefront again through Gary Grigsby's WitW and found the CMX2 games and there re-invention. Only currently owning CM:BN (as this is my main passion for WW2) core V4 although will be upgrading with the MG and CW expansions.

Loving playing against the AI as definetely a lot less dumb than the CMX1 days.

Don't mistake my history with CMX1 as anything still but a Noob though :)

Looking for a couple of PBEM games either core or with the MG/CW expansions as will purchase these soon. I have followed the tutorial instructions for the CM helper and DB so hopefully am good to go and hand someone a few easy places up the "ladder"

Ping me and hopefully we can hook up.

Tim

Hello Tim, welcome to THE FEW GOOD MEN!
Good to have you with us! :)

Joining this community was the right decision because Combat Mission is at it's best when played head to head (H2H)
- as you already know. ;)

Hello and welcome @Pinchy

Welcome to a great and fun place, hope you enjoy your time here. It's like an old school pub (without the tobacco smoke, casual sexism & weak beer :) ) with the advantage that you can safely ignore (most) people, chat and generally be a pain; but still know the customers are all interested in YOUR hobby.

Have fun (and I apologise in advance for Zinzan - he's not representative of all the members :) )
