Wargames Through the Looking Glass

I've finally cracked how the Flames of War flexible groundscale works. With a bit of help from Lewis Carroll.

'When I make a measurement playing Flames of War,' Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather scornful tone,' it represents just what distance I choose it to in real life, neither more nor less.'

'The question is,' said Alice, 'whether you can make similar measurements on the table represent so many different distances in real life.'

'The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, 'which is to be master – that's all.'

Alice was too much puzzled to say anything; so after a minute Humpty Dumpty began again. 'They've a temper, some of them – particularly weapon ranges, they're the proudest – movement rates you can do anything with, but not frontages – however, I can manage the whole lot of them! Impenetrability! That's what I say!'

Very true as well as amusing. :)

your life must be really empty if all you do is laugh at a faceless game company.
don´t buy their products, carry on, get a life, play something else... have some bloddy sex.

It's my blog and I'll poke fun at Battlefront if and when I want.

I like and buy some of their products, though I don't play their silly game.

And just what is "bloddy sex"? I've had all sorts in my life but I've never come across that variant before.

If we the customer buy the product we also in my opinion have the right to say what we think of it. I personally think they are crap.
