Playing one of my first campaigns vs AI, trying to get automatic German decisive victory using 1.08.04. I'm in May 1943 and the AI has gotten an insane amount of Guards units, like the majority of their military has turned to Guards status. When I checked their commanders report, most of their Guards rifle divisions have a 0/0 win/loss or 1/0, and some have more losses but still are all Guards. Not sure how this happened or is intended ? This change all happened during the winter, prior they only had handful of guard units. Thanks for any help or input.

How do one check the AI commander report? I didn't know I could "check out" the other side.

Playing all the way to '45 and not be able to look at the condition of the enemy the final turn is a little boring.

go to the set up screen and set both sides to human. Run your end turn as normal, you can then open the other sides turn when its ready (or any of the saved turns from earlier), just remember to flip it back to the AI once you are finished (you'll also need to rerun your end turn routine so that the AI picks up the turn).

same technique as if you are playing left hand-right hand (which can be a great way to test out very specific ideas)

I figured it was a bug, but I wasn't sure this is my first time playing the full campaign. Here's some screens sorted by infantry: (can't directly link to screens, just copy and delete () around com)

As you can tell by the scroll bar how much of the majority of their forces are guards. Also note their extremely low TOE. I didn't notice this at first because I buckled down during the 42/43 winter when all this happened. But prior their regular rifle divisions/corps were close to 100% TOE, since the massive change to guards (which also increased the # of units), all their TOEs have nosedived in the transition to guards units. Not sure what triggered the bug or how it happened, not a big deal now cause this game I was just messing around trying to learn the ropes, but I don't want to start a new one and have this happen.

It is a design feature .

also, the AI is alowed to create units at no admin cost .
