I love WITE, but one thing that bothers me is the fact that both sides have perfect intel into the production of the other; granted the real impact of this is on the Soviet side, but nevertheless its a bit ridiculous.
In '41, the German player always knows which cities have evacuated factories and which have not, so he is able to avoid launching fruitless offensives against emptied cities, since he already knows the valuable targets have already been evacuated. Is this in any way, shape or form realistic? Its related to the crazy rule that merely moving a unit of any kind adjacent to a city without cutting the rail line prevents you from moving factories at all. Is it really realistic in any way that a brigade of German motor troops could prevent any factory evacs?
Why not just make factories dark to the opponent except for a list of what exists at the beginning of the game? Even if reality is somewhere in between (yes, German recon could probably identify, vaguely, where factories were being moved to a limited extent), darkness would be closer to a true picture of things than the current full disclosure...
Just my two cents. I am a pure Soviet player so if I am wrong and somehow there is a FOW mechanism around this, I will stand humbly corrected.
