Thanks for the feedback and part of the issue here is that the game needs to have supply rules that not only work on the Russian front, but also for mainland Europe, North Africa as well as for events like D-Day and so on.
For example, we received some criticism in the past that pockets, let's say on the Eastern Front deep into Barbarossa, were too difficult to eliminate if there was an HQ present, i.e. they should be considered "cutoff" and easily dispatched. Fair enough, however in game terms a pocket on the Eastern Front is essentially the same thing when players are in low supply in North Africa or when they've landed a D-Day landing and resource supply is damaged or a resource is not yet secured etc.
All this means is that if we "fix" the Eastern Front issue, we potentially break other low supply handling of the game in areas such as North Africa or D-Day, and so we had to think of potential ways around that.
In our latest releases we have lowered supply for HQs that are "cutoff", this does address the Easter Front concerns, and then had to rejig HQ connections and boosts from other HQs, as well as lower and change the Malta Supply effects for North Africa to help compensate for lower supply there... and then to handle the D-Day situation, and to introduce our long held desire to include some sort of Mulberry effect in game, we modified HQ supply rules after they land from an Amphibious assault. Had we not, then HQs would have gone from having a distribution supply value of 5 to a distribution value of 3 when landing without securing a supply source.
Essentially we are not doing anything in a vacuum and we are always trying to keep in mind that any potential change will have an effect somewhere else in game, and thus the little adjustments here and there.
But that being said, the feedback here is definitely fair enough and for a situation like Sealion, the new supply boost to HQs is perhaps too much (especially that early in game) and we can look into making another minor tweak here to help compensate for that.
I have a pretty good idea for this and will discuss with Bill to finalize it for a future update.
