I have a technical question to you - do you want more frequent but shorter updates or less frequent but longer ones?
How's the space on your hard drive? Paradox wants to challenge your galaxy brain with a great selection of space exploration games - and they're all on sale for some very down-to-earth prices! The sale runs from May 4th until May 10th at 17:00 CEST / 08:00 PDT.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Pretty much. I would have to withdraw to the Crimean Peninsula and I really, really don't want to lose Rostov.However as I see it your southern front is on the brink on collapse if you lose that port due to it would be the final nail in the coffin for your already strained supply routes?
The situation should be improved a bit by the end of 1943. Some ports will also be improved by Feb 1944. I will continue to build infra thorough 1944, just in case. Besides, I intend to invade India after all, so some improved infra will be handy. The Axis already controls the Middle East and the only thorn left in the Mediterranean is Gibraltar.Regarding that, what is the status on the infrastructure upgrades in eastern Europe?
I don't like the idea of just giving up after all that trouble of getting so near to Stalingrad, Baku etc. If I have to, I will withdraw step by step until I can easily defend my holdings from the Soviets."No retreats" from Rostov reminds me of a similar order that was given to Field Marshall Paulus regarding Stalingrad; and we all know how ell that turned out!
Have you figured out where your troops will move to in Russia to establish the Winter Line?
Interesting to see all the naval techs and your plans for the future. Russia isn't quite dead yet. Although it may not want to get 'on the cart.'
Ha! Given the fact that the war is actually far from being over, it's not an impossible featYou went from 10K views to now it is up to 40K views. I wonder if it will get to 100K?
Thanks for the kind words. I really enjoy reading the people's comments, so keep them upI just bought HOI3. So, usually when I buy a game THEN I go take a look at the AARs. As others have said before me this AAR is fantastic. I think we're all glad Hitler didn't have you helping out on the planning and execution.
Well, I would tell you good luck, but it seems you don't need it.
Nice updates, can't wait to see more
Quick Question: Where can I change the difficulty like you did in your first post? I can't find the relevant file... (probably I'm just blind >.<)
Maybe. It's definitely more fun and challenging to fight an enemy which can still bite (and without save-editing). Anyway, the tendency is clear - as long as my forces are supplied and have some ORG, it's possible to continue the advance, creating encirclements along the way. When the supply situation becomes troublesome and/or when the ORG levels of my mobile divs become depleted, I have to stop and regroup.Just keep the tanks rolling and you'll have the Russians on their knees in no time
Yeah, they are fighting relentlessly there, especially since all routed troops retreated to one province. No chance of escape and high stacking penalty, though.Well done in Romania! They really didn't have a clue what they were getting into. I also concur with the limited offensive around Rostov. It's a good move and will keep the Soviets off balance. I noticed that the Russian pocket is still being reduced.
About the Romanians - if they joined several months earlier, then it would be an entirely different story, as encircling the Soviets would be more difficult in this region and all those Romanian divs would be fighting alongside them. In the worst case scenario, the Bulgarians would be overrun and I would find myself fighting hard against even more Comintern troops. In the best case scenario, it would probably buy them a month or two. It would still be significant, though, because the Soviets could build more divs and have more time to reinforce the badly mauled ones.
