I think I'd like to do another game in Normal mode, so no moral advantage to the germans. I think it is challenging for the germans, but I am trying to learn, so I'd like to take at least one game in such mode pretty deep if possible.
The SD concept (introduced to me by Radagy), is mainly to prevent the soviets from retreating all the way to Siberia in 1941 :)
SCENARIO 11: 1941-45 CAMPAIGN–SUDDEN
DEATH (22 JUNE 1941 - 4 JULY 1945)
Scenario Size: Large
This campaign is a variant of the 1941-45 Campaign - Alt VC260 campaign, with the only
change being additional sudden death victory conditions. The victory conditions are the same
as that in the Alt VC260 campaign with the addition of three sudden death victory condition
checks made during the campaign. The checks are made at the beginning of the first turn of
April 1942, April 1943 and April 1944. If during one of these checks, a player is determined to
have met their Sudden Death victory conditions, the game will immediately end and declare a
Decisive Victory for the winner.
German Victory if victory points are >=242
Soviet Victory if victory points are <=191
German Victory if victory points are >=255
Soviet Victory if victory points are <=188
German Victory if victory points are >=210
Soviet Victory if victory points are <=150
The Alt VC260 campaign victory conditions used in this campaign as well are:
• The Axis Decisive Victory level (Automatic Victory) is 260 instead of 290.
• The Soviet Major Victory timeframe ends on 31 March 1945 (instead of 31 May 1945) and
the Soviet Minor Victory timeframe between 1 April 1945 and 30 June 1945.
• A draw occurs if Germany does not surrender by 1 July 1945 and the Axis has less than
142 victory points.
Radagy, thanks for your message. We must both be pessimists as each thinks the other was doing better :)
ool, let me know if that works for you, or suggest alternative.
