Thanks Sugar, much appreciated all around, and especially so for your long time support and posts of feedback for the game
For the immediate attack in the West strategy, like most strategies, we don't necessarily want to completely eliminate them, but if it is too powerful due to an oversight on our part by not having Maginot units start entrenched (this was the same for our WaW release and now corrected in the latest patch), on our end we simply view this as a correction. Initial testing on our end indicates players can still try and employ this type of assault, but it will be more challenging, and even, (arguably as it should be) if the Maginot units are correctly entrenched in their positions.
For zero supply units issue, i.e. those appearing from a first turn DoW, you are correct that these have always been in place, and with v1.16 the initial intention was to make it slightly (just slightly) easier to destroy them than what was previously the case. They were supposed to receive 50% more damage from a successful attack against them, however we introduced a bug that went even beyond that which is now corrected on our end and also corrected in the latest WaW patch. So in the end, we are not actually making any changes here for the next patch other than correcting the initial change we wanted to introduce in v1.16.
