From: Chicago, Illinois
While the C and C changes are overall a negative for the Russians (for continuing games, as well as new ones), there is one change that does help: The free transfer from Military Districts.
Rather than overload fronts, I have always put units in STAVKA-attached armies.
First, those armies will actually get a benefit from STAVKA now, which is a bonus.
Second, I am finding that several sectors are within the 45-hex command range of Volga MD, or Moscow MD. You might as well attach these "orphan" armies to one of those commands. You can always attach them later to something else, for "Free".
