2008 was the last time I played a CM1 game. Can’t believe it’s taken me 12 years to get back into Combat Mission. But hey, here I am ready and willing to learn the finer art of CM2 H2H interaction. I now have CMBN 4.02 loaded and have been playing solo, to beef up my skills before I tackle H2H. Been playing wargames off and on since my late teens and let’s say I have a long grey beard now…. Most games are online these days though.

The question I have is, what’s the best way to learn this game?

Read the manual a few times? Watch some tutorials on YouTube? Play the AI solo until you are winning? Find a mentor to teach you or just get into some H2H and learn from your mistakes…. Quickly… :)

Play lots against the computer and never use saving and loading to get you out of trouble or save you from your mistakes.

Yes, I see. Just finishing the Fauville training campaign. I have been saving but only as I can’t complete the game in one hit. Humans tend to learn from their mistakes, especially if they get a second chance!
