    I guess the envelopment penalty was for attacking from three provinces, would be more if you go in from four or five.

    And I am perfectly confident more Urban areas will be added. As I wrote in my preview, with smaller provinces they just can't have Leningrad, Stalingrad, Moscow, Kiev and NY not being urban terrain.

    As my screenshots are taken in rather quick succesion I cut out the interesting bit which does not include the top bar most of the time

    great AAR by the way. I've been looking forward to each update. School gets in the way though.

    I like games and movies to be as historically accurate as possible. Just because i dont want things to happen exactly to a "t" like in a history book, and the fact that if the soviets do put up a good fight it doesnt bother me, doesnt mean i dont like history. I have a BC in history and i'm going for a masters in arts in military history from the Norwich University so dont get me started on history. I've been a fan since HoI1. Like you said, it is a game. If the game played out the same all of the time, then it wouldnt be much of a game. I'm not going to complain and be all if i'm playing against the Russians and they put up a good fight and delay a fast German invasion. thats all.
    That was a tad more polite .

    Of course I agree with you that the game would not be very fun to play if every session turned out the same way all the time. Who would like that? I guess most of us like this game because it creates alternative history and I also belive that many of us would like that alternative history to be based on a historically fairly correct starting point (that's the reason for my question about balancing). This has also been an explicit ambition for the Paradox team. It's the uncertainty and variation during the rest of the trip that makes it worth while.

    So I guess we share the same interest in this game and the AAR after all?

    In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
    We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

    Is statistics winning over a bloody encirclement battle? In a Germany vs USSR AAR? Now, this can't be right...

    Great AAR, Singleton. I hope my bitching about the USSR's mobilising capability didn't make me seem like a hater

    KUTGW!

    Both both both

    Let the Stavka report have the usual "modification of facts", please

    I also vote for the statistics. After all we are "numbercrunchers" in this forum.

    Do you have to choose one after the other at "economic laws" or can you skip or freely choose one of these laws?

    Seems there's only one possible which is listed below.
    Or are there more than one active (some of them contrary to the other...?)

    Is ther a time delay for switching laws?

    Hmm, looks like Germany will be stopped well forward of the historical limit. Really enjoying this.
