Welcome to ATG. We are still some people who are dedicated to the game :)
I am currently in the middle of the best computer wargame I have ever played. One AI opponent was overwhelming me with massive amounts of tanks and artillery on one side, another had me at a stalemate on land, and a third had naval and air supremacy on me and kept launching raids on my coast. On top of that I didn't have enough oil to run any real offensives or raw material to keep my factories running.
I was about to quit, but I decided to go cheap and see where it got me. Infantry, Bazookas, machine guns, assault guns, flak, horses, and cheap fortresses. Using terrain, taking land back that was undefended or poorly defended, and turtling up to absorb the constant artillery pounding until I could get things sorted out.
I'm now around 80 hours into the game - February 1942, and I've finally captured enough resources to maintain a small airforce, build tanks, and go on small offensives. It's rare that a game is balanced just right like this. I only wish I'd bought it a lot sooner!
