Everytime they release a new version of WitE that has major changes to the core rules, I run a series of test games of AI vs AI to determine the level of Axis base numbers to duplicate my achieving an Axis Decisive Victory in November, 1943. This then becomes the threshold that I use for the Axis as I try to learn how to play the Soviets better.

I have run four test games with the latest patch, and in two of the games (50% so far) Finland ends up surrendering in March or April 1942. The Soviet AI sends the Leningrad Front, an Army HQ, and one division into Hango and captures one or two Finnish towns and then waits for the Finnish surrender roll to go in their favor. Once Finland surrenders, the Soviets have a much easier time of it. Now note that in the Axis AI does not take Leningrad until the spring or summer of 1942 instead of 1941 like most human players and that is key to the Soviet knockout of Finland in this manner.

I just find this result pretty interesting, and since it has happened multiple times now, it seems that this is something to watch out for as the Axis player vs the Soviet AI and possibly should require the Axis AI for Finland to capture Hango so that this will not happen against a Human Soviet player.
