I hope they come up with more Market Garden scenarios with the British expansion.
Oh, and a new Arnhem bridge scenario please because the original one sucks.

What's wrong with the Arnhem Bridge battle? I thought it was fairly acurate of history with the Germans trying to get across the bridge and the Brits blowing them up as they came! Twisted Evil Granted, those tanks and elete troops on the right flank (if you are Axis) are kind of stuck behind the trees, but historically the British held off a much larger force!

I was just commenting on the Arnhem scenario play-wise. The German forces are cramped with way too little room to do anything. The scenario just becomes a waiting game where both sides are trying to get in a ping here and there.

But that's what it was like. The Brits held one end of the bridge and the Germans held the other end. The Germans couldn't get anywhere across the bridge for a long time, even after the British troopers were surounded! They just picked at eachother for a long time. See if you can get your hands on the movie "A Bridge Too Far". It does a good job showing that British force.

This is true, however in terms of game play only it's very hard to win as the Germans. If you look at the Battle Reports posted you'll notice that the Allies won 83% of the time, and there are over 200 Battle Reports entered for this scenario.

A Bridge Too Far is an awesome movie.

Part of the problem with the battle might be that it's set up early in the conflict for the Arnhem Bridge. Later in the battle the Germans completely surounded the British position. To show that, there could be more German units already across the bridge (like tanks that broke through) and infantry that got around behind. That might make it harder for the Allies to win! Rolling Eyes Just a thought.
