Right, like the 3 snow in the south zone and 2 in the North zone instead of mud, Notenome had in in oct/early nov 1941. Sure it had no impact on Moscow and Rostov falling.
Guess u find what ur looking for, its not like its random and therefor will be at an advantage to different sides in different games. Just ask Speedy about how much the mud has worked for/against him as german/russian. He is a special one tho, one to be revered
Indeed. It P's me off when you just hear this one sided stuff.
A FACT (as it's happened to me): the last 4 random mud turns I've had playing as SU in 1941 Campaign's have occured at times when they negatively affected ME not the Axis.
Get it straight. It's not like the random mud turns always occur only on the Axis when they don't need it. Obviously, when it does occur in one of 'their' zones in 41 Summer it's bad but to say it's a joke that only favours the SU is a totaly falsity and a lie.
Off my Soapbox....
Interesting, as a predominantly German player since the games release I really have a hard time envisioning the circumstances where a German would ever want Mud in '41. If he does, he may have done something wrong earlier! I also think it is a definite advantage for the Russian side as the '41 campaign sets the tone for the whole game.
The extent of the 'North' zone pretty much blankets most of the vital areas down to Stalingrad(!) and the time in '41 when Mud becomes more than a possibility, it will have a drastic effect on the campaign. I have just experienced this while making the moves to isolate Leningrad and trying to pocket several Russian divisions. Additionally the drive on Moscow will have to stop, allowing the Russians to reinforce and firm up their defenses.
True, later in the campaign Snow instead of Mud may allow the German to extend the campaign a little longer or make a grab for something more doable. However, imo that little extra is really inconsequential compared to what can be gained, or lost, from the summer campaign. Conversely, playing with random weather as German has made me a little wary of overextending so may not be willing to take advantage later anyways, even if it does arise.
