Liquid Sky expressed the view that he preferred, as the Axis, the Trappenj. starting position over Case Blue. As he points out, Germans can clean up Crimea/get East faster, but face a larger Russian force and will take more casualties. I come up very much the other way, and find Trappenj. very very hard on the Axis (if playing the AI, Case Blue becomes a cake walk with a few plays). Other views?

Imo Trappenjagd favour the soviet player while Caseblue favours the german player, so yeah trappenjagd is a lot harder for the germans.

Even if trappenjagd allows you to advance further at the caseblue start date the germans have always had less troops and the soviets more in my games.

With the soviets strategic position starting on the defense they can also get a lot of prestige just playing ambition cards at the start since they are really on the offense for the first few weeks.

And of course in Trappenjagd they have plenty of time to form a stable line in the hills around voronoshilovgrad(sp?) forcing the germans to go around to the north.
