That's not the problem.. the problem is in my past interpretation: I
thought he was speaking about ONE MAN going around collecting
weapons from dead tanks. This, along with the usual string of "this
game is for nuts, too many rules too much detailed too much
nitpicky etc. etc." which I got as the only response from just about
everyone I asked about the game, completely convinced me it was
a squad-oriented game (I mean you play ONE squad). Besides, it's
called "Advanced SQUAD Leader", isn't it? :-)
From than on, I simply ignored the game. Never ever did the idea
brush my mind of actually asking about the scale, so convinced I
Truth to be told, I probably wouldn't have bought it anyway. It's
difficult enough to find players for SFB here, even with the "Star
Trek battles" ploy... ASL just scares people off. But I'm used to
this, now.

Coming to think of it, it's difficult enough finding people to play Epic
with, let alone SFB/ASL. The world is for pokemon/magic fans.
Probably, the world deserves that....
