I'm not sure what the value of testing game mechanics in 1963 is. It's a completely separate game to what most people play and is clearly completely out of whack with regards to balance.

HOI 4 combat starts getting janky around 1943/44. And by that point I think pretty much everyone has either won or lost anyway.

You'll notice a similar thread recently that has tests done in 1939/41/43 technology groupings, that sort of thing is generally of more use to players as it's within a timeframe and organisation that they can understand and make use of.

Glad that some ppl enjoy my sharing of game. I know sometimes i play too slowly, but really i am just focusing on what works.;)

Edit: i think what slowed me down drastically was after I conquered UK in late 1940s. Because i was not confident of taking on Ussr head-on, i decided to ally with them through the focus tree. Then i went on an extremely long journey to conquer all the other nations, including Japan, China and australia. I wanted to have the resources to take on US (without my allies help). And now this, I have 1000 factories and tons of resources except oil.


On hindsight, if I let my allies including USSR joined me, I could have defeated US early, maybe in 1940s or 1950s. But i dont want USSR to get too strong by stealing my land. Since USSR is the final boss.

I think my next campaign would be to replay from the part when I defeated UK in 1940. Then i came up with the "perfect" operation barbarossa, since i have more experience. That way i can quickly knock ussr out of the war, allowing me to focus on USA next.

Edit: USSR will declare war on me in late 1941. So i have that limited time frame to build up...

What ever "fast" means in this case...I would say.....impossible.

But that means not, you can't win. What is your army and airforce strength?
800 division (now training 300 divisions). Airforce (excluding the one in reserve) is 61k.

I also have the entire Berlin-Moscow axis forces because I can kick the Soviets out.

After finishing off the big powers I like a fresh campaign myself. The build up with a new country is to much fun for me to stay with an old game that I feel I have beaten.
I think I have played all the major nations on at least elite/veteran difficulty (Italy still need to replay). Not sure what to do next haha.

That is a lot of real estate you are holding with 52 divisions. You even took out Turkey while you were juggling everything else.
Still haven't face UK, USSR and USA though. Now just monkeying with the regional powers. In your opinion, how would you have played this campaign?
