gab, looks like you use stravka as a combat front, not for me, high command don't do operations in my book. IMHO.
flam, CP of 16 (armies) in winter, pls explain further, with relevant dates.
anybody who cares to listen, "he who gives success in battle is valued above all others" line from Lawrence of Arabia".
randal said morale is different in the game than a general definition of morale. Everything in the game, everything, is different from real war. So what, we're all armchair general types playing around with unreal simulations, for fun.
I mentioned a few events, important events, that had effect on morale, public morale and armed forces morale. Just an opinion, I say not, just imagine. 1) the US fleet goes to the bottom at Midway 2) Moscow falls in 41 3) no lend lease for you guys(reds). i know #3 may not seem all that important, but lend lease meant guns, lots of guns, (spare the remarks about the other stuff, oh please). Fire power decides the outcome of battles, nothing else, nothing.
my opinion is that the game would be better ie, more fun, if the morale in the game followed somewhat the historical events (oops i used the dreaded h word).
I left out some other important events 1) Stalingrad, after that everybody knew that the Germans would sooner or later be toast and 2) the allied bombing campaign. Goering himself is supposed to have said he knew the war was lost when he saw the first Lancasters over Berlin.
I'm ranting, again! Put that morale back, put it back, into shock and guards. Tweak something else for balance.
Left something out. No officer purge. Stalin doesn't murder and starve all those people in the Ukraine. Same outcome early 41, uh no...\
