I am also using TW 2013 rules with a combo timeline. I like the TW 2000 timeline because it gives me more precise details on what happened where and thats a big time saver when you are planning a campaign. In TW 2013 the war in Europe is almost a sideshow and the lack of details makes it hard to do a pure military campaign like the original game.

BUT the rest of the rules rock and Smoke just came out with a Shooters Guide for all the gun fanatics.

That'd be plural, actually. We have three so far: Pistol-Caliber Carbines, Alternate Arms, and Cold Warriors. A fourth, Undercover Arms, should release on Sunday.

Now you tell me, after I've already spent my book budget for the month on Amazon!

If it's a PDF, it's not really a book...

I browsed through 2013, but don't think I am going to buy.

I don't play any FtF anymore - being the main reason. There are a few things I don't like about it as well, but admit I haven't given much attention to things like autofire and other elements that 2.2 needs improvement.

Well, I don't play even PBEM anymore, and I don't plan to convert or come up with any stuff for it unless my Excel-Fu dramatically improves or someone can make me some spreadsheets to do it. If anyone wants to give me a Christmas present, T2K13 spreadsheets would be nice...

I doubt I will buy T2013, I'm not a big fan of the new timeline.

If I do buy it, it will just be to round out my collection.

I have bought T2013 and run games as a GM ftf. I agree that the timeline is a little frustrating. I bought it intending to run the timeline from the book, but I modified the background pretty heavily. The Devs chose to leave things pretty open, and to be honest, that is about my only gripe. I played the original T2K and 2.2 for years and loved the system, but...

T2013 is the best modern combat RPG I have ever had the joy to play. The 'initiative', 'combat steps', and morale all lend that extra level of detail 2.2 lacked. 2.2 is a great system and I love it, but T2013 is better. In character creation and starting gear it also gets the nod. Much more realistic career development system. Anti-munchkin measures are in place.

I agree that the T2013 system is very good. And for those who prefer "rools lite" it has three levels of complexity.
