Hey, did anyone fix the units that surrendered at Stalingrad from exiting the game for the West Front with their vehicles, manpower, and irreplaceable counter, despite the fact that the game already accounts for production/manpower allocated to the other theaters of conflict?
I thought not...
Hey Mr. Billings, still not reading me?
Yeah. Still not buying War in the West, because I learned from War in the East.
Sincere thanks to Morvael and the testers.
Why fix what isn't a problem? You do know that after rebuilding they went west, right? Someone was going west, and as you're not OKW, the choice is not yours.
Aurelian - you know that Helio is bringing up the point that he has made much earlier on these boards. That is, 1) Manpower/vehicles/production is lost automatically in 1943 due to additional fronts opening up - see rule 21.4 (Production to other fronts) AND 2) The OB is similarly affected (press i in game to see the withdrawal schedule) AND 3) These formations are withdrawn at their current level of strength, although they were severely mauled historically at Stalingrad.
These units were not 'rebuilt' in the east, they were withdrawn to the west in order to be re-constituted. So not only do you have several large formations withdrawing from the OOB but you have a production hit as well. Double-dipping if you will.
Further, I remember this conversation proceeding into the morale hit during 1943, even if large German formations are not destroyed. One may be able to justify the production decision, but the morale decision seems capricious at best - at least to me.
