Do you feel that you can push the AI Axis back soon?
Um......we're trading single hexes here and there. I attack when I can find favorable odds for it. The Axis CV is STILL ( Feb. '43 ) too high to push anywhere. I'm thinking I'M going to be pushed back when spring '43 arrives. It's a good game so far but I would have thought that the Soviets would have gained the TOE's and manpower to start some serious offensives and so far that's not the case. I haven't been able to hurt the Axis in any measureable way, on the ground or in the air, and the CV's of the Axis units are still astronomical so far. There are selected areas of the front where the Axis allies are on the front lines where I might make some progress but all he has to do is move a German unit in there and my offensive stops. Typical Axis CV's are 29=46 ( offensive=defensive) and my CV's are like 14=25 or so. I have to gang up on my targets when I attack........using three 3-stacks I can usually push back the smaller Axis units but those big mothers are a bear to try to push back. I'm loosing thousands of troops when he usually looses only hundreds. Attrition has yet to kick in seriously. I'm thinking that 110% for the Axis side might be a little bit too high for my tastes. I'm creaping up on turn 100 and I was expecting a more docile Axis side when as it is, the Axis side is still a dangerous opponent. I'm thinking I may be running out of time in this game. I'm not at all sure I can capture Berlin by May '45. We'll see.
I am glad that you find it enjoyable!
