Seeing BCS played by Pros.

While at Game On I had a chance to see the hard core OCS/TCS and now BCS players cranking on a late stage scenario of BCS’s first title Last Blitzkrieg.
They had epxerienced some of the frustrations and challenges I faced solo. They however have over come!!

IGS/GTS Update  A Victory Awaits

Last Blitzkreig

I recall many false starts with OCS in the beginning. I’m sure this will see its way into my brain eventually. So in the mean time we should take a look at the details provided here. I was going to break this up into 2 or 3 posts [I hope it dont snap the back of WordPress…] but it is best viewed as a continuum.

Here we go:
