    Lets have a bit of NATO discussion- what tanks do we use?

    Ive got the Abrams and the Challenger, and I see no point in using either. Both are far too expensive and Ive never seen them pay back their cost. I like the MBT-70 because its only 75 points, it has ATGM's, and an MG and Autocannon so if you rush a group forward you can kill some Hind's and Havoc's if you are lucky. Plus they are fast, have decent armour, and a lot of fuel.

    Starship M60AE2's are really nice too, because you can use the same tactic for even cheaper. So long as you have a recon unit your entire tank army can fire a crap ton of ATGM's before the enemy is even in cannon range, you can rush forward and knock unwary heli spammers out of the sky, and you can move them quickly from place to place without worrying about fuel.

    Between the Challenger 1 and M1, I prefer the baseline M1.

    Unless its a heavily forested or urban area my tank force is always the same; 1-3 vett'd heavy tanks (Challenger, T-64BV, M1A1, T-80U) supported by small groups of medium, cheaper tanks, (Chieftain 5/10, MBT-70, AMX-30B, M8 AGS, T-62M-1/T-55AMV-1/T-72B, also vett'd if you can afford it) the amount depends on the map but I usually go for a pair of mediums for each heavy, and a platoon (4 groups) of infantry. Heavy tanks in the centre and the medium tanks on the flanks, with infantry. Support the force with mortars/light artillery/attack helicopters and keep a mix of auto cannons and heavy AA in the rear. I also like to bring some logistics vehicles along with the force rather than buying them when they're needed, or having to rely on choppers when there could be enemy AA in the area. If I'm playing pact I bring a flamethrower tank for each flanking group.


    I know who whole main battle tank thing is meant to replace light/medium/heavy but I think with the range of vehicles on offer in this game its still viable to call them that.

    I think you'll have to download some more stuff once the game gets released.

    the Msta was OP though because even though it costed less than the French AMX Auf1, it was better in every single way.

    Edited:

    It even had a goddamn stabilizer.

    Is it just me or is Wargame saying your version is out of date? Because I restarted steam, checked integrity and defragged. No new updates on steam, yet I'm still getting the message.

    Browsing through the forums, it appears the full version is/has been put up on steam's servers and should soon be fully available. Gentlemen(and women?), my body is ready.

    Last update of the night because... the game is available!

    Basically the game is available on Steam main server and they are now deploying it on each of their servers all over the world. Which means that you may have to wait a bit more to get the game depending on where you are located.

    Have fun guys! We hope Wargame: European Escalation will please you!
    Edited:

    Change download region to US to download the game now folks!
    testing

    Change your region to Washington DC for a guaranteed download, DC is always the first steam server to get updates.
