I am not sure I will actually play the game, because I am retired and lazy, and it looks like hard work , but I will probably buy it, just to own a beautiful model of WWII in the spirit of Third Reich, and fiddle around with it.
I struggled with this also during playtesting. Not so much because I'm lazy but I'm busy with other things and didn't have the time to delve deeply into it. There are serious planning considerations needed for oil, manpower, and supply aspects, moreso than the simplistic Third Reich. Personally, I also prefer the more simplistic Third Reich, and that motivated me to work on my Advanced Third Reich mod for Strategic Command. As SC and WiF, and now WarPlan, have provided larger scale and more complexity, it takes more time and effort for players to actually play. And for a computer opponent to be made competent and challenging, for solo gamers. Folks need to decide for themselves what they want and what they enjoy.
