From my point of vue, with 1.03.00 version, against an average or a good axis player ( i think that i'm an average player, not good, but not too bad) and at mid 1942, it's more or less unplayable for the Allies.
Mid 42' i lost Leningrad, japaneses took Vladivostok after DOW Soviet Union, China is out of the game, it was very easily destroyed by the japanese army with the support of its air force, Japanese fight now in Burma. Germans tooks Egypt, then Palestin, Irak, and they are now at Teheran. By Soviet union Germans took Caucasus with all oil fields. i don't know how India will be defended, attacked by rear and front.
The US army is long, long, too long to be ready for saving anything...
Soviet Union and China are far away too weak. I will see what will be the game later, in 1944, but at this time : unplayable.
Unfortunately, even with the last patch the game is still unplayable for Allies.
UK is undefendable if Germans use its Luftwaffe against it. German fighters kill easily all British fighters and German bombers destroy all British units. I think that the game is very unbalanced about aerial warfare : the german air superiority is too strong. Where are the Spitfire ? When my fighter fight agaisnt a BF109 it lost 3 points, the german only 1 ? Then German tanks with their two hits capacity finish the job. UK Is lost in may 42.
Soviet units still have 2 lost against 0 for each counter attack attempt.
USA can't do anything, it's impossible to give them a decent army 6 months after Pearl Harbor....
I noticed that allied side suffer a crual lack of HQ. SU has only 2 (the third is easyly destroyed during the 1st turn of Barbarossa) and UK only one in the european theater. It's too less, and a HQ is horribly expensive. I think that the problem should come from the diffrence of HQ number. Allies do not have enough, or Germans have too much, Or maybe a HD gives too many advantage.
Unplayable. Of course, it's only my point of vue.
