"A lot of ASL. After 25 years at it, it's still going strong. Some Combat Commander, can't ever get enough of this one. Some COH, interesting design I'll give it a good look."

I'm more into ASL (SKs) right now than anything else, but Combat Commander is certainly not off the table. I know some some other CC players, too. Send me an email at if you like. I live in Bethel Park.
