Feldmarshalls Lancer and Vic, thank you for this game and for continuing support.
I see that one of the bug fixes will make the game tougher for the germans. I thank you, but in reality I did not need it...
My last campaign, played recklessly and in the end with terrible relations with almost everybody specially the trucks and trains guys, came tantalizing close to victory. I captured Leningrad, Rostov and Kharkov and was a few hexes from Moscow. But then the Blizzard set in and I was subjected to something that I will now name a "reverse Barbarossa" . General Winter and the Siberians crushed AGC, encircled and completely wiped out what remained of 2nd, 9th and 4th Army as well as 3rd PG, A few scattered remains of the 2nd PG still held out close to Gomel, cutoff from any supply and the AI proceeded to isolate what remained of AGS and AGN and ended my misery by capturing Konigsberg and the AGN HQ. I was subjected to a serious thrashing and it was fun...
All along the only thing that I found that did not make sense was my relation with the fuhrer (well, Von Bock, with almost all the AGC destroyed complaining to me about trucks was also laughable). I played nice guy with Hitler all along (followed his plans and always agreed with him in the meetings) and my relations with him were "superb". And they kept at this level even with the destruction of the wehrmacht, the loss of Smolensk, Riga, Kiev, even Brest-Litowsk and while the russian armies were about to capture Warsaw. He apparently kept thinking the best possible about me right until the last turn...
Of course, I can understand that you guys did not expect that such a lousy player as myself would play your game , but nevertheless I will sugest that maybe the relationship between the german player and the man with a funny mustache should be seriously influenced by such catastrophic losses as the ones I suffered.
