1. I saw in another thread there's a bug about air units not reconstituting in the national reserve. That's unfortunate as during the mud turns in 1941 I rotated about 2/3rds of the Axis air force into the NR in order to reconstitute for the spring, figuring they wouldn't be all that valuable come winter. Oh well.
How is the NR *supposed* to work?
2. Leaders. I know others are worried about generals dying. I haven't seen that many (actually, *any*) killed so far in my CG so far. (BTW, if I missed a death when it was first reported in the turn it happened, where do I go later in the game to see the list of generals who didn't make it?).
But dismissals, however, are rampant, generally at least one or more a turn. Are dismissals supposed to be this numerous? What's really frustrating is that I lose many of my best leaders to dismissals, even when they have strong political ratings and very high win/loss ratios (not even 5 to 1 is enough to save them).
What's stranger is that I can then just go right back in and reappoint them on the very same turn as if nothing happened, no delay in reappointment (not for a turn, let alone longer)-- the only penalty is the expenditure of admin points. Is this WAD?
Also, I noticed in the Logistics report that several of my newly appointed generals routinely have their attributes reduced. Why is this? Am I assigning the wrong ranks to the wrong units? Is this only a temporary reduction?
3. Very peculiar event happened to me. I had shortsightedly never gotten around to clearing out the Baltic coast to the west of Tallinn (including the Estonian islands), thinking nothing of it (I was sure I had killed everything there during the initial invasion, I just hadn't reclaimed the territory). For 20+ turns this mattered not, but when winter struck, within a turn or two all of a sudden I've got a veritable swarm of Russian infantry divisions (about 8, IIRC) pouring out of Estonia, all supplied by the port at Wirtsu.
Like I said, that area was empty, at worst it may have had a routed division or two left there, but certainly not 6 or 8.
Is it the case that partisans prefer to generate en masse in hexes left uncontrolled? Or did the Soviets conduct an amphibious landing along the Baltic? *Or*... is this a case of magic movement?
