Oh! I was under the impression that the first ed. Command rules were not liked, I hadn't got that they were broken. Could you say why or show me where to look for discussion. Is it a matter of being unable to perform historical maneuvers and coordination?I would try Consim World and there might be some early posts on this site.
And if so is the game still relatively balanced between the sides despite that?
As far as I recall the issue is in the LIM's system itself and the time table.
I personally did not even get to play the 1995 edition to any lengh. Just moving the first days pieces around getting a feel for the games Movement, Terrain and Fire.
When I heard there was an "Adapter kit 2000", then I started playing that.
