If the Russian attack capability was more accurately modeled, the UBER-encirclements and mass German retreats would be significantly curtailed. The UBER-blizzard modifiers could be reduced and for once the German side would have to worry about setback before winter 1942. Consider this, if 18 Russian brigades surrounded a German divison attack CV of 4 in a level 1 fort, the basic odds are only about 2:1. If the superior German leadership is factored in, the Russian attack would have a very small change of success. Does this seem historical?
Also, for 2 years now there has been a digital seesaw war of varying fortification efficiency, supply efficiency (remember the Moscow UNTER-supply rule), manpower modifier, and of course, AP costs. Despite this, with the trend generally being to increase the power of the Wehrmacht, the basic scheme is still Germans vs Russian ants, Russians vs German ants, etc. There is little JOINT ATTACKING in a turn. Do you thing the recent ARs with experienced Russian players perfoming great strategies would do so much worst than Stalin did? Were there no non-blizzard, successfull Russian attacks before Stalingrad? Why could the Russian Army retreat successfully in 1942 in real life? It seems WITE models Russian capability according to Hitler's assumptions (kick the front door in and the whole structure will come crashing down). Too bad one can't stack 6 brigades to a hex.
