Hey, I'm Apocal from California.

I've been wargaming for about... twenty years now, having really started with Great Naval Battles: Guadalcanal, Close Combat 1, followed by brief forays into TOAW, TacOps, CMx1 and various flight sims. Since then I've really dug into Operation Flashpoint, Sub Command/Dangerous Waters, IL2 series, Falcon 4.0, the Harpoon series, Silent Hunter 3 and 4, and finally came to ArmA, CMx2, Steel Beasts, the Wargame series, CMANO and War Thunder. So yeah, a nice mix between naval and military, but I'm currently stuck on tanks. Historically speaking, that'll change in about another year or two, but for now I like heavy metal.

Still getting my head wrapped around the finer points of PBEM; most of my prior CM experience is in real-time, so mastering pacing in sixty-second intervals is my next goal.

Welcome! :) I played most of the games you listed (except TOAW and Tacops), with a special long time for Silent Hunter 3 and 4 and Dangerous Waters, as well as IL2 I am still flying from time to time with the last mods.

Drinks are on the new guys... :cheers:

Hello Apocal, 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). ;)

For to get involved into the PBEM H2H gaming action, please go to the gaming section and choose the category with
the game that you'd like to play (CMBS or CMBN etc.). There you'll find the postings for gaming requests.
And there you may also start your own, of course. ;)

-------> http://www.thefewgoodmen.com/thefgmforum/forums/combat-mission-x-2-cmsf-cma-cmbs-add-ons.169/

Enjoy the club and become a part of our community - there are many reliable gaming partners here, plenty of stuff to
check out and good people to meet.
