After my 3rd 1943 campaign in the past month I feel like I'm getting a handle on this massive, incredibly detailed and amazing military simulation. Congrats to the developers!
I have a couple of lingering questions for the WitW pros on the forum.
1) Playing as the Allies, do most of you run the game using HQ Support Level set to a number to allow the AI to transfer SUs around between HQs or do you set it to Lock and handle SU assignment between HQs manually? I tried Lock in my most recent campaign and it was an awful lot of clicking to keep moving things around. And a sub-question to this one: if using the numbers what was your approach? By 1944 it seems you can use 9 for everything and still have literally dozens of SUs assigned to SHAEF and the Army Group HQs.
2) As to SUs ultimately getting assigned to an individual combat result, are SUs potentially assigned all the way up the chain of command or ONLY from the HQs directly attached to the combat units?
3) The HQ unit detail display has three tabs. You see the units assigned to it on the Assigned tab, that's logical. But you set the "Support Level", the number of SUs assigned to it by the AI on the Elements tab, and while it is titled "Support Level", it has nothing to do with the Support Ground Elements displayed just above it, right? Seems like you would expect to set the "Support Level" number on the Assigned tab.
Thanks, really enjoying have the time recently to do a really deep dive into WitW.
