Just another example of sheer madness. Once again I dare anybody to agree that this would have ever been a realistic/historical possibily in 1942 east front.
Germans have superiority tactics, manpower, exp, equipment, morale, and leadership. Yet just look at the results.
Just using logic 101, if this would never be an outcome in 42 why would WitE even allow it to happen ONE time?
To me and all my friends that play war games it's clear irrefutable proof that combat mechanics are in some cases flawed. I don't see HOW anybody could say... "oh no this is ok, it should be possible". You're basically going against ever all the historical evidence that suggested give this situation the Soviet forces would have lost more of everything.
HOW CAN WitE developers and players EVER allow this continue. This to me is just such an injustice to gamers and an even the actual veterans alike.
WitE researchers on this aspect of the game, you ought to be ashamed and shame on you 100x if you don't fix it. This is my opinion and once again, not going to candy-coat this bs.
If WitE is going to be a 'war in the east fantasy' game, then allow the Axis to have a winter prep option, because you've basically taken away what was their true strength in this campaign (41-43) superior tactics,equipment, and leadership on almost all levels but Hitler. But in this case Hitler is out of the picture as players are suppose to be making those decisions.
Sorry just becoming more and more dissolutioned with what is turning out to be some real unexpected results from combat that I've never experienced in any others games of this campaign.
I can just say, this is not what I am typically seeing in my combat results at all! It is certainly possible to dig out a couple of fluke combat results, but in my experience this would be an exception. Also, the Soviet unit is dug in, it has more support units than the Germans, which could explain the German losses.
I think you are going ballistic here over a very limited selection of results, and apparently doing so from a pro-German standpoint. And since you bring up the subject of injustice, I also think your post is an injustice to the developers of this game!
P.S. You could make a rather long list of games that are an injustice to veterans. It would be interesting to hear what computer simulations of the Eastern Front in your opinion do show proper respect to veterans.
