Pelton, who are these Soviet players praising and defending the replacement system? I'm not seeing them. I have been complaining about it since the last iteration of changes to it came out and greatly dislike it. It's worse for the Axis than the Soviet, true, but it causes headaches for everybody. It isn't in place because of some kind of concerted lobbying effort by the Soviet mafia. The designers wanted to simulate replacement friction, which is a good idea in principle. But they went overboard.
Let's criticize it on objective grounds and leave the political nonsense out of it, please.
I see none of the guys I am playing having any issues. Hugh has a huge army in north and has been attacking with same units every single turn and they are max toe every single turn for months now, summer or blizzard. Brian, Bobo and myself in my game as SHC. Units are at max toe 90+ turn after turn after turn after turn and they are in front. There is zero replasement issue for SHC.
German units gain 2 to 5 %, but are lossing 5-20%. So even if they are winning there toe is dropping. Also even with +40 battles attacking and losing 5 -10 to german counter attacks SHC OOB is growing turn after turn.
There is zero manpower or armament issues for SHC, I have no idea what you guys whine about as far as SHC goes. Complete BS from my exp as SHC.
Its a never ending manpower and armaments with a steadly growing OOB manpower/guns/tanks. I lost 30 armament pts to GHC and more then historical manpower centers and its a cake walk as far as arm/manpower goes. I dont get what all the whining is about. You have far more then you will lose per turn and far more men and armaments that you can possibly use up.
More Middle Earth fairy tails. When Bomazz/MT/Katza and yourself loss a game or for that matter get a game past July 42 then I might leason to some of the fairytales.
The game completely ignores the historical facts that during the 41/42 more SHC were pocketed then GHS.
It completely ignores the historical facts that the russians took more losses in 42 then 41, 43 then 41 and 44 then 41. The losses were straight up fighting.
