The one great thing about computer based wargames is the volume of games you can initiate and play at once. I've picked fights with three players so far, with another one lining up to send in moves. All you need to have is a sense of organization.
I already have a roaring battle going on in one game with the Poles vs the Wehrmacht. I've got the Poles, and while my opponent was able to knock out one of my Shermans, I was able to rain some fury back, and scored on a StugIII and a couple SdKfz 251 halftracks. I get the feeling he's going to hurt me back.
If you have empty time, I suggest, very heartily, to buy Combat Mission:Beyond Overlord, learn to play it, and pick some fights.
