Heh, the Original version of the game was a bitch to beat as well. I think
I can handle a draw (which is what missing the limit is ) . Right now I'm
trying to keep my hands on Odessa...I don't care how many of you dislike
Guntanks, I would not like to see 18 of them coming at my way, even if
they're the weaker II types. The fact that I've just started turning my
ground army into Goufs sorta add to that as well .

And you know, even the whole new system of even the non-important areas
being sections into battles, Its a lot harder to take over the other areas.
drat.
