It is. Advanced Weather tends to mean BAD weather most of the time.
This is true.
Maybe so, but we play with advanced weather on, and I see it as an enrichment to the game.
It adds a high level randomizer to all operations, impacts coordination or cancels air ops as a whole, impacts DL, impacts strike accuracy, and so
enhances the feel of uncertainty. It is not gamebreaking at all, you just have to add a lot of fail safe mechanisms into your planning.
I have been in a couple of countries like Thailand, Southern China, and Malaysia, and all have one thing in common: A high reliability of heavy rain
and cloud formations not existing in continental Europe. Also, reading books on the Pacific War enhances the impression that weather was a dreaded
factor impacting all sorts of ops.
Matter of taste I guess...
