I dont want to get forced to start wars just because they happen in RL history. I want an game engine that makes it possible to play exactly historical if i want to and behave historical.
If I dont want to, the game should not try to force me back on the historical path.
PDX did great with eu3in to make this possible. It goes on the coast of RP and flavor. Almost all nations feel exchangeable.
4 me the fun with pdx games is to experience "what could have been"
About nation specific units - when a country installs a fanatic racist warmonger regime it can raise units based on its traditions that only such a country can raise. Japan had plenty suicide units. When the luftwaffe and reichsmarine employed suicidal missions it was only more difficult because the leading ranks were unhappy with it. So i think it should be absolutely possible to employ them when the situation is serious.
It would be great if the tech developement in hoi3 could model the impact of war experience on the development of arms. The tiger Tank was developed after the germans experienced the weakness of their tanks against KV and t34 tanks. The allies developed heavier tanks after the experienced the tigers.
There is a lot of time. I hope they develop a game with an option that e.g. allows peace between uk und germany without total conquest. The circumstances have to be realistic - as much as fiction can be realistic
Well, I am really thrilled for hoi3!
...and me too. HoI3 has a LOT of promise, I think.
