From: South Carolina, USA
I installed the beta patch and continued a game from 1.21.4. I was at Barbarossa, and when I hit the "General Winter" period I had partisan activity each turn. I ignored it each time, but I have never seen it so frequent. I also notice the troops in the North were at full strength, while my troops in the South were 1-9 and 0-4. I want to qualify this by saying that the troops near supply were full strength, which allowed me to "weather" the storm,and come out strong in Spring. I wish I had snapped a screenshot, but I might be able to recreate it as I have a saved state from the Barbarossa initiation. I will try to recreate this winter battle, and snap shots. I was surprised to see such frequent partisan activity, however.
Has the partisan activity algorithm changed, or was I just unlucky?
Also, a small thing, Slolvakia has three convoys at start. They are just going to have to find a port, and build shipping.
