I have grown tired of some of the latest trend in RTS games coming out more focused on tank (or vehicle) spamming than having a well balanced force of armored vehicles, infantry and army aviation aircraft. Is it just me or is this trend creeping into the miniature tabletop genre as well? Flames of War has become a favorite of mine recently since I've finally got some time to catch up with a local gaming club and I notice everyone is dumping a bunch of points in vehicles with one thing missing. Where are the troops?! So has game designers lost sight on tactics of armored warfare even in the modern sense? I dunno about the old tankers here lingering about in the forums who may have driven the old M60 Patton or the new M1 Abrams but aren't infantry more of a threat to tanks than other vehicles now ATGMs have gotten far more lethal? Maybe I need to do some more research on this but honestly do you think an infantryman with a $1000+ rocket launcher could wreck havoc on a multi-million dollar tank in order to make spamming AFVs prohibitly expensive in real life? The only country that could spam tanks on the field in a similar fashion are the Russians since they have a gazillion T-72s and T-64s left over from the cold war. Discuss.
