I quite agree, AI could be a lot more agressive, here is my game so far.
I did change some settings mid-game to have better challenge, with FOW it is more enjoyable.
AI was able to do some encirclements though, in the south.
Leningrad front was historical, i had to put my best divisions there, 2-3 lines deep, to be able to keep a railway to Leningrad.
Moscow and center, in june, july, august, i was stressed but than AI when he saw good lines near Rzhez and Vyazma, he tried southern diversion between Bryansk and Rzhez.
Then he tried to break south of Rzhez, he tried near Vyazma. Finally on december 5th, Rzhez, Viazma were holding. What i do not understand is that both cities would have fell with direct attacks, maybe not on the first time but he would have been able to take them with just a little more agressiveness. But it created a salient between Bryansk and Rzhez, a salient he lost soon after.
In the south real lack of agressiveness. I hold Kiev, basically a line from Kiev to the south. This is a joke.
In the blizzard i did counterattack en masse, in the center and north, retook Velikye Luki, and i am beside Smolensk. Germany already lost more than 1 million troops. I am now in the end of january 1942. I hope the german will revert back to offense in spring/summer.
