Well, unless Marquo is lucky (and in my opinion he deserves to be lucky ) he should start getting some (that, he also deserves it ). He has a 20% possibility of snow weather. Therefore he better prepares a nice testament...
In the end, I have to admit that I am not sophisticated at all (if we talk about this blizzard thing). I am basically a ruthless thug who will attack ANY German (or weak allies hahaha) units on sight. Not against the odds though. And I am pretty certain there will be plenty of victims along the whole front. The accountant has to shut up, step aside and watch.
All I know is... 120.000 men were added to the total pool. 70.000 reached the frontline units this turn. Ergo, if I am not mistaken I can afford to lose up to 70k. Yes, that's harsh, but as I see it, the blizzard offensive IS a great opportunity you must N O T miss. I mean, after all this is not a tennis match! It's war.
I must a) harvest guards and b) SMASH the Germans (the smashed poor souls will NOT, repeat, NOT fight during the snow and summer). Let's imagine I preserve my men... Wouldn't I lose them the same during the snow turns and then summer, when the German machine will be ready again (in other words, achieving er... nothing)? If I have to lose many men, it's now, at leat they will die KILLING decent quantities of enemies...
The plan is above. I will try to more or less stick to it. But of course a picture is worth a thousand words Marquo, I'm coming!
