Just got War in the East, and still Reading the manual. I want to know what could be a good game path to learn wargames without becoming overhelmed for complexity, what game should i play and master firts, what second and then... I´m a HOI3 Black Ice veteran, i am used to some kind of complexity, but i have read that WITE is far even from a game so complex like HOI3 Bice. In that sense i love a historical acurrate experience, i mean, i love to have a game when the soviets are really weak at the begginig and then a Monster at 1943 and 1944, i would love to experience fighting against hordes and hordes of reds even after a very good barbarossa (Like historically happened). i readed from Reddit that one played recommend to play first Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa before jumping into WITE, i dont know guys what do u think.
PD: i need to say that i am not a multiplayer fan, i prefer to go singleplayer.
System information overload can easily happen to you if you worry about all the detail, so my advice is to play by intuition, and learn a lot about one thing at a time, start with ground operations, then a rough pass on the economy, as it effects how you fight after all, and leave air till last, get a feel for how/why leaders effect outcomes, why is x allocated to many units to operate effectively?, and how to change that, how terrain influences combat outcomes, how control of hexes makes movement (mps) cost in terms of mps spent cheaper, so work out how to change control of the battle space economically/easier, why do support units matter and how to get them where you want them.
Practice your German first turn v the AI a lot, before going to deep in number of turns played, there are a number of good lets play vids to watch as well, example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-AhPFjzMf0&list=PLbSx_b5pOYvFwl7muMSs9mUaalcfjqZQf
Dont forget to look at the map mod, it enhances the base map.

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
