You know, with the latest map in the latest patch; there is a tonne of rivers in the Low Countries. That makes that region far easier to defend over vanilla. Anyone else notice this? German AI might get bogged down there vs. French AI but in player vs. player perhaps it makes the difference.
Two front war really means Germany is screwed. Cpt. showed us that with his extremely aggressive onslaught into Poland as he figured attack is his greatest defence.
What's next? Costa del Carnage (Nat Spain)? Kentucky Fried Carnage (USA)? Chicken Chow Carnage (Nat China)? Or Á Cote de Carnage (France)? Maybe there should be a house rule that encourages the Comitern/Allies to compete for victory conditions. Force Comitern/Allies to Puppet Germany (customise a decision to release the approx cores of modern Germany)? It's very interesting how that would go. I think everyone here wants to see the fall of a player country. No disrespect to the player but the collapse would be a spectacular thing to behold.
Keep us updated.
Yeah with proper defense it can be very tough, specially because many simple people insist on cookie cutter 3 INF and ART divisions. Dunno if this is the case, did anyone build engineers here?
Also, since it´s a World War 2 game, there is nothing wrong with Germany and Axis being defeated. The problem is if it happens in one year as was the case here. And I really doubt if SU wouldn´t bog down in the lower countries even worse than Germany, considering their low tech and leadership and the fact they don´t have the Blitzkrieg and Destiny magic bullets to use. It would be a stalemated and boring game, probably. Soviets have no real navy or transports and therefore can´t do anything crazy and attack UK, for example.
