Stealing a title of a funny bit used by ESPN sportcasters on the Monday Night countdown show, I present a fantastic effort of Soviet military prowess. Below is a screeshot of the areas SW of Stalino at the end of Turn 39.

And after the Soviet turn, here is the beginning of turn 40. Where, oh where, have all the soviets gone? They're nowhere to be fond. They didn't sail away. They didn't march away (they're not anywhere south of Rostov). No, they teleported to critical places on the map. C'mon Man! All that planning to pull the guys to the west of Stalino so I could trap them, and poof! Away!

Sorry, I'm a little sarcastic, but I know this is WAD, and it's disappointing that it is.

How the heck did they evacuate? By sea?

There was a bug-squash/enhancement in either 03B1 or 03B2 that prevents that from occuring

Load up the latest beta. Re-run the turn and tell us if it made a difference.

From my experience playing the Russians, I know that a human player can't pull that off.
Glad to know that the patch addresses it.  I'm waiting for the official version of the patch to be released.

That has never happened to me! And I have done almost the same encirclement. Have you done any reece? Could it be that many of them are still there but unspotted at the time you took the screenshot?

I've seen this before- experienced it myself one day while driving my Panzers around the Steppes.

Just when you think you've got all the snakes in a can- BOOM! Their out again.


...by magic too.

I wish I had a screen shot of it though- the biggest bag of Russians a man has ever had- or ever will...

And BOOM!
Adieu to you General Muzrub, adieu 
And the Russians were gone...

I have FOW turned off. I can see everything. The next turn I moved through the area and there were no units there. Trust me -- they just beamed away to more critical parts of the front.

Would be worth running the turn again with the latest patch so that we can see if in fact the bad warping behavior was fixed (we think it is).
