Place units on reserve close to units in combat. Make sure they are not next to and will not be next to an enemy unit. They must have lots of MPs. Good commanders ratings (initiative I think) is then the main determining factor. But at the end of the day you need a good roll of the die.

So it's RNG based? In WITW I seem to get much better reserve activations.

And by the way, the whole Moscow area and the suburbs are filled with units. So they are very close by. At least I routed the Leibstandarte. My opponent is a very good player so I kinda need to know how to get those activations.
Does it matter if the Reserve Front(Zhukov) Is overloaded? I can't find another good commander to take a role in the Bryansk front which could be useful for the defence of the southern Moscow area.

Yes if you overload army by 1 cp that means your leader has 1 less initiative for all his checks to reserve which is a big difference

Also reserve activations hit a soft cap as the more than activate the harder the chance becomes to activate another cumilatively

Brigades also get a +1 to checks of reserve activations

Good luck!

Who would you recommend as a second front leader in '41?
