I know it may be a ways out, but I'm holding out for Steel Tigers.  \m/

Although the scale may be different, the screenshots look a lot like the "Order of Battle" games from Matrix.

Love the look of the new maps and units. I hope this is a real winner. Played the hell out of PG 1 back in the day on my..... 3DO system, remember it?  :hide:

Well, good news is my account is still active there, and the list of orders seems complete. Hopefully they get the data and license keys up and running. It was very convenient to have them accessible on the site.

In all fairness to them, no product survives contact with the public, no matter how much testing is involved.

I can't really comment on whether this specific issue with the orders should have come up in testing, but you'd be surprised how much you don't think of when trying to test things. Even then, your testing environment could throw up 0 issues, where-as people on the other end will find every issue under the sun.

But if they're not in a good habit for QA, then they're unlikely to randomly "git gud" at it just for something like a new website. The reason behind this order bug gives some insight as to what their priorities could have been.

Testing stuff is a crap job and I typically don't comment on it.  But this is one of those things where I have to ask about how stuff was tested.  Based on the type of DRM they have, I would have thought this would receive the most exacting testing before turning the whole thing on.  I don't understand how they couldn't have known this wouldn't work.  Just one of those things about BFC I scratch my head over.

I was on the scenario design and beta test team for CM:SF and the biggest thing I learned was just how little rigor went into testing stuff. They tended to focus on one or two issues at a time, usually coding issues that were largely invisible to the testers (stuff happening in the background) and a lot of things that were more cosmetic in nature didn't even get an official comment. I don't think that is unusual based on my other beta-test experiences with other companies, but my biggest disappointment with the experience was the difficulties in communicating among members of the team - despite having a dedicated forum. In other words, this seems like nothing new for BFC. I expect the most charitable explanation is that they have so many projects ongoing that their attention is constantly divided.

It's funny how they go - like the least popular got the least play.
