I will when I can get a functional desktop PC again - my one decided to pack in. (Not surprising given it's survived both a lightning strike and an exploding Power Supply box...)
At present I'm on my geriatric laptop that overheats in the time it takes to boot up as it's that old... --- Where logic won't work - I will PAL Gamers unite - http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/277-pal-gaming
One issue I currently have with this otherwise wonderful find is that nearly NOBODY waits for a server to become populated.
You're in the lobby, you join a gameroom, and... it starts. Immediately. The host just clicks 'OK', and once again you're playing on A (bastard) Path Beyond. 1v1, Russia vs Russia's race for 5 War Factories and a Heavy Tank spam game. --- The noblest of all dogs is the hot dog: it feeds the hand that bites it.

Good god, there's a co-op map that's absolutely insane.
It's called "Normandy" -- unlike nearly every other war-based game or map or anything ever that has something named after Normandy, you're not the one launching the offensive and trying to storm the beach. Nope. You're on the defensive against a special AI type (the same as that used in missions), and it is relentless in attacking. I don't know what the victory conditions are, because I've never been part of a successful game. We just get overpowered and then slaughtered around 20 minutes in by the never-ending lines of Heavy Tanks.
"Sounds ****", you may be thinking. Admittedly, it's a niche appeal and there's not much strategy beyond holding a strong defensive line, but at the same time that's what makes it fun. You only have to worry about keeping your defences reinforced with constant units/structures, occasionally making a decision (which can backfire tremendously) to try and push forward in order to try and stem the flow of enemy units.
