I wish there was a Youtube video which explains all the little details. I have learned a lot from you guys in the forum and XTRG or MaurauderPL and I can play the game BUT there are so many questions which are maybe not that important but I am a guy who wants to know all the details of a game too. The manual is also a good start but doesnt often explain the "Why". I really would like a Youtube video in which somebody speaks about the Logist Phase Event Log and all its details, about the Pool system and all the rows, how to get a feeling for how many trucks I need next round, the production system (ammonuition, fuel etc.) works for getting a feeling of the game. Feeling is the keyword for me because I know a lot to play the game atm but I dont feel the game, I dont have a feeling of it. Many Youtubers play the game and explain it so you can play it but they dont get deeper. I wish there was somebody who doesnt play but speaks about the game and its game mechanics in very detail :)

As a Russian you dont have to worry too much about trucks, supply and ammo. Manpower and Armament points are important.

The Russian dilemma - if you retreat too quickly you lose cities (manpower) and if you stand and fight you lose armies (manpower and armaments).

As you play more and more, you can began to understand it more. I recommended playing it more and when you do have questions, u can either google it or ask on the forum. There is a lot to this game.
I find a lot of youtubers have no idea how to play the game. I really like MaurauderPL videos to learn how to play as the Axis.

MarauderPL videos are interesting to start with, but keep in mind he gives advices that are not always the best. That you discover while playing. I had to unlearn a few things.

This is what I struggle with. I'm on turn 68 or so in a PBEM, playing as Russia and I think I have given up too much ground. Do you stand and die or run away and run out of men? It's a fine balance.

If you've made it to turn 68, you will end up in Berlin at some point.

How many armaments factories do you have? What's your manpower production?

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but manpower production is about 85k per turn (2139 capacity?).

Armaments production is 293 (at least I think it is. I'm looking at the production report under 'Special' - is that the right place?)
