... at least as the Axis
Both Italy and Germany are way over-powered in the campaign game. In my current game, it's late April '41, and I find I have 25 extra German corps (5 mech, 2 armored, a bunch of infantry), over what was actually used historically, that could be employed in Barbarossa, plus I have 900 PPs saved up, with three bulbs of research for artillery, tanks, and air. Since there's no mechanism in the game to force me to employ those extra corps in garrison duty in France, for instance, I'm free to use them againt the USSR. Making for a steamroller power against the Russian AI.
I hate having to put the human player on a 'hard' level, with the AI on 'easy.' A game ought to be balanced on the 'normal' level. But that may be the only way to make it fair.
I believe Uxbridge's EOT mod addresses this, but also changes up many other aspects of the game. Anyone playing that mod, what is your experience re the topic of this post?
