Arnhem bridge closed! Sun, 16 January 2011 11:28
It seems the German authorities in Arnhem - Holland, have closed the bridge for access. Unfortunately this means that their elite armor units cannot cross to defeat a small group of tenacious british paratroopers hiding out on the opposite shore...

Or to put it another way - I had to defeat the british without ever crossing the bridge due to a bug in the map. Somebody give me a medal for that Smile

Has anybody else been unable to cross Arnhem bridge lately?

We've heard reports from scouts about this. We'll investigate quickly and assess the situation.

Especially as that award has already been "retired"

This would be an interesting scenario to play without the bridge crossing.
The Axis have 5 infantry against 5 Allied infantry. The Allied artillery will be the key as usual. Can the Axis advance their artillery to the river to help?

Will there be a new medal for playing this damaged scenario? Laughing Confused Shocked
Will it be fixed in beta16? Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Stay tuned for more

I just lost this scenario due in large part to the fact that nothing could cross the bridge. My opponent was down to a two piece artillery unit, one two piece infantry, and two one piece infantry.

My opponent played well and he won...by one medal. I was leading for a while, but could not cross the bridge and his artillery just backed my infantry against the river and killed them.

It was a great game and my opponent did well, but I was winning and unable to exploit the advantage due to the bridge malfunction. Confused

I feel like I played a perfect game of golf...only to be hit by lightning after a hole in one on the 18th. Crying or Very Sad

Beta...it's not the Alpha!

I have heard no reports that Arnhem Bridge is passable, so I presume it is still closed.

Yes the bug is confirmed, a side effect of some new code on Obstacles. Crying or Very Sad

This will be fixed in the next release.

Sorry for the temporary bridge closure.

As a software developer I know that you're conforming to the unwritten, unspoken code - "For every bug removed add a new one that is harder to find and harder to fix!" Shocked Laughing Shocked

Well, it's like real life.
The current bridge (John Frost bridge) is the third one after the initial bridge was destroyed in 1940 and the second one was blown away short after the famous battle....

I crossed it today (the real one, by car) and no bug could stop me. Cool
Hope the development team can clear the demolitions soon on the online bridge...

If you want to cross it outside the Netherlands, just go here
