I'm liking the prose.
Hard Luck, see, see, oh see what you've done. Yet another crop of semi newbies crying over the rules. Sorry newbs, I'll get to you later.
John, Sov may launch devastating winter "O" turn 25. Mild blizzard is plenty. Winter 42/43 Sov should be able to seize the strategic initiative, another offensive, different from first winter. Summer '43 should be interesting, clever axis player can really, really hurt you.
What you guys can do is figure out this Pzball nonsense for yourselves. Rules, as is are just fine.
Or you can PM me and I will coach. If you want the coach option first thing is to find a gaming partner who will take the other side and play for the purpose of learning. So much easier this way, way more fun. Probably take months, you heard me right.
Before you start in on me go to utube and find song "When the levee breaks", the harmonica version. Zeparella, a girl group, does a great job. Then when you can weep and moan, go after me full force.
Ok, a bit of failed sarcasm, but I'm trying to be witty. You see our pal Mr Sillyflower has killed my expensive lawyers and has a big (huge) judgement on me, only thing I can do now is make a fool of myself in the forums or he takes everything. Maybe he will relent and I can at least eat beans for the rest of my days. hehehehe
Ok, I will bite on this. Come back at Xmas time in 1943. Yep for the Soviet the game is grim and boring. I think we are up to Turn 27 in my campaign game (and the way we are going it is going to take longer than the actual war). Without giving too much away I have a massive army and airforce which is gaining experience so slowly I wonder what they are doing. Mild blizzard, the AXIS army is in decline but their Panzer force is still growing. I am obtaining lots of one hex retreats but the losses can be up to 10 to 1 in favour of the AXIS. No breakthroughs (yet). By campaign season my opponent will have a massive Panzer army; historically the joke went 1st PZ had one tank, 2nd PZ 2 tanks, 3rd had 3 etc...but in the game 1st PZ has 100 tanks 2nd has 200 3rd has 300 etc...since the game started I have bombed ever PZ and Mot div I have located which has destroyed 1 tank, a captured T 34.
Anyway enough of that rant I am doing ok in the game historically but at times it is boring.
