I'm busy playing my first game with TOAW and am playing the CFNA as Axis.
In early 1941 I captured Tobruk and pushed the Allies back to El Alamein (actually the AI just pulled back and didn't stand until Alamein). Anyway, a large battle erupted and the Allies utterly decimated my forces. In one engagement, I had around 120 panzers destroyed by Australian infantry, with not a single Allied tank in sight. In just a couple of full frontal attacks the Allies wiped out the 21st Panzer division, the 15th Panzer division and the 90th Light.
I was a little surprised by this, so jumped in as the Allied player to see what the Axis were facing and really, it was mostly infantry battalions, with no tanks even near the front. And in most cases the Axis units had been overwhelmed by just a handful of attacking units, whereas there were 6 or 7 Axis units per hex.
I then let the AI play the next Axis turn, and it amazingly took this beaten bunch of crappy units and smashed the Allies apart! Suddenly single Italian infantry battalions were smacking the Aussies all over the park! Is that right? Does the AI have some sort of an advantage when it plays, or is it just a far better player than me? I am definitely a TOAW novice, but it just seems a little wrong...
