I'll admit I've never played the GC yet in WitW, but have played many in WitE and am used to the dreaded mud halting offensive operations for a few turns before snow, but in this scenario at least.....It's been a long, long time with nothing to do. Air ops cancelled due to weather and two 1-CV ant armies staring each other down south of Florence as mud has slashed CV's.

My railway repair units are seeing the most action.

Looking at the dominating weather screen, "rain" is here for many many momths.

Am i missing something? Should i be hitting 'end turn' till may '44? Seems poinltess.

Mud should be much less of an issue in WITW, according to the manual. As I understand it, in places with poor national road values, mud is still an issue. In places with the higher national road values, mud is much less important.

I'm in Italy. In 1943. The roads are medieval!

You think Italy has mud? Try Russia.

Here's the weather chart from the editor. Note that with Average Roads, Italy isn't too bad in light mud (80% attack modifier). Heavy mud is still bad. You can get the high pressure system from Africa that dries things out for a few turns (giving you dry and/or light mud), but otherwise you are facing difficulty attacking in the heavy mud (not to mention issues with your airpower). Rain/mud was a huge factor in Italy and it is in the game (not as bad as Russia, but still an issue).

I've gone back to it after re-reading the weather section of the manual and the tips above and its a far more nuanced system than I'm used to in WitE where it was almost binary. Clear=go, Mud=stop. If you follow that rule in WitW you wont get anywhere!
