What I mean is, including all the expansions (probably lost battles has the best), what are good Axis scenarios to play which ones are reasonable to expect a possible win with practice against the AI. There are a lot and I know most of you don't bother with them, you go right to the campaigns, but for operations and roads to and all the others which in your experience seemed there could be a possible victory. I don't want to waste time playing a scenario as Germany only to find out that I don't have a snow flakes chance in hell to win the battle not even a minor victory or a draw. I just don't want to spend all my time hours, days, weeks planning only to find it was impossible in the first place.
It is obvious that in the later years it will be pretty much impossible to win as Axis, so I wouldn't bother with them and I don't expect to win with the most difficult settings nor am I asking to play one that I am Guaranteed a win. I do expect to lose a lot as I have not played whole lot(won road to minsk and a couple other short scenarios) but knowing I have a chance will make it worthwhile learning to beat it the next time.

So what are they if you have played them and what settings or rule sets should I play by to make a win doable?
Or which ones should I avoid all together?

Yes I did a search and didn't find anything of old that related to this question, so any help here would be appreciated.

I played vs the AI for 18 months and read all AARs before playing humans.

I started with the smallest scenario and worked my way up to GC.

if you don't have Lost Battles exp get it.

People are not AI, but you can get to know what Germany is good at and what Russia is good at.

I only play Germany, but I played allot of Germany AI vs Me Russia.

Played one game as Russian vs smokendave only because hes cool.

I would play the AI both side for 12 months before playing people.

The AI is hands down the best to date by 1000%

If you have any questions about how to play Germany vs Humans send me a PM once you have played the AI for a while.

Pelton, yes, I've read a lot of your posts, you are a well respected player and one of the best playing German.
I didn't expect youto reply.

Anyway, I will stick to the AI and try a game against my self sometime as both sides.

Yes I have lost battles I just bought it the other night and so I have both expansions to work with.

one question (I have the latest patch) what should I have for game options and should I have the soviet combat bonus +1 , none or defence?

And who or what is smokendave? is that charlie0311?
