80 hexes out with 75 left is not to bad considering there are 3 mud seasons still. min 15 mud turns. 80 hexes 60 turns left basicly.
Once you can get the ratio to 1 turn per 2 hexes from Berlin. Or 30 turns and 60 hexes from Berlin you got a Draw.
Your simply not going to get a minor win in this case.
In this game
GHC was much farther to east and still got only a draw.
Its clearly impossible under the current rule set for SHC to have a shortage of men or armaments. Even attacking 50+ times a turn SHC manpower and armaments grows every turn.
I think your doing great, but the best you can do is a draw. Just the way the deck is stacked from the start.
Yah..I'm starting to consider myself lucky If I can pull a draw. Fact is I've learned a lot of lessons on defense...only a bit to late. Right now I am experiencing the dreaded armaments crunch. I have 250k men in the bank but 0 armaments for the last 10 turns. While the front lines are getting reinforcements, its a limited amount because I dont have the gubs to place the rest. I've disbanded all my heavy artillery, some of my rockets (set the rest to 50%), and I am avoiding combat wherever possible. I am down to 3.1 million front line strength..this is down from 3.9 in June. I've also disbanded a few luftwaffe divisions that were around 20% as to avoid wasting reinforcements. It looks like the landbridge might be a space where I can check him. I'll post an update tomorrow but near Vitebsk I have 4 fort rows and I'm about to have 3 rows of defenders. 1 row on refit, 1 on reserve and the front. If I can't temporarily slow him down over the Winter I'm toast.
disbanding any SU is a mistake.
X number of 150mm, 100mm or rockets ect ect get produced every turn so disbanding or lowing TOE% is not going to save a single arm pt, but only weaken your defences.
You have to disband HQ, airbase or any other support unit. I would also disband all LW bomber units and only use fighter or fighter bomber units.
The current armament issue is not historical at all.
Historically Germany had 10000 of planes,tanks ect ect but no men to use them. WITE we have 100,000 of men and no equipment?
Basicly we have equipment and men but no armament pts, silly and really not working at all.
