There is this pretty vocal guy on the darkest hour steam forums that keeps going on about bugs in 1.5.1 being so bad contra 1.4. For instance:
"Torpedoes may not be placed on human/allied subs & destroyers (BUT may be placed as usual on Axis subs & destroyers). Major game killing bug (specially if you play as Britain -relies on its navy for defense). More bugs than fixes in 1.5. Discussed in earlier Comment.
Mmmh, easy enough for everyone to check it out... I just did, too. Neither axis nor allies can use torps for subs or DDs. So it might be due to Mods as above already mentioned but then one should be, perhaps, a bit more careful with the blame or just use no or other Mods.
Have given up on DH & uninstalled. Overpowered Germany/Axis & huge gifts of wealth & armies render game unbalanced & Players research (tech), a waste of time."
DH and even more so some Mods definetly give players a challenge which is, I reckon, the reason we play it.
Nevertheless, from what I read in the AARs, a decent human player putting some thought into it seems to be able to win in DH with every major power which is, I reckon, another reason why we play DH.
Perhaps the quotes of the "vocal steam forum guy" are a bit out of context? Otherwise I have problems to understand his statements.
