I've asked this question as well and I see a lack of organized unit makeup and little to do in the line of promoting the organization of historical tank regiments which would create a squad on squad multiplayer slugfest. The only thing I can say is the numbers are just not there and perhaps this is a niche that falls drastically under the air combat genre.
I can personally say that a lot of guys are missing the true strengths of this game in not coming together with comms and a fixed objective style of play. You miss the sim aspect totally riding around alone through the countryside trying to knock out tanks and targets. I can't see a remedy in the near future but I can say that I'm pleased with the direction the game is going and I've seen a lot of improvements over the months of it's development.
One thing I know...AI enemy tanks with a high skill setting are a challenge....albeit not realistic sometimes, you better knock them out fast because they rarely miss and the same with AT. We set them up so they spawn a lot of times in the wood lines and hull down.....and you don't spot them until it's on you. Kind of gives credit to the Russian skill of camo.
Probably the biggest plus of the game is the historical optics and ranging features which I believe are one of the biggest immersion links despite the sound complaints and some of the other shortcomings. Also, having the best air combat simulation running in the skies above you is a feature none of the other games can claim. It's a unique simulation because of that and managing the resources to allow for that has got to be complicated.
I would say the biggest bust of the game is the LOS issues, but if you build your own missions you can manually place objects to help avoid this shortcoming. Yes, it's more work and I'm hoping for a fix.
As far as price.....I don't have a problem with it personally based on the game play, messing around with mission building, making movies, and our campaign weekly missions, it's well worth the price. PS is a lot of fun, but for me, it just doesn't measure up to TC as a tank sim.
If anyone wants to join a mission of ours...on Sundays, 1400hrs EST, just PM me.
