Your losses are trivial and you even are a bit ahead of schedule here with a mid July surrender. I figured it would take you a turn longer.
Honestly do not understand your complaints here. This is an excellent position for the Germans. What are you expecting here?
Nothing, you have already answered to me.
You are not going to get a late June surrender on France against any kind of competent allied player. So forget that. Human allied players aren't going to be as stupid as the historical ones.
You see against AI, I can destroy Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and France in three turns and be on track compared to the historical pace. And, I don't have to care too much about losing any kind of units. The French AI is unable to perform any counter attack contrary to a competent allied player as you said.
But, I have forgotten that May 24th, 1940 was an heavy rain turn in this game. So, yes Germans are not too bad here and, for the first time, I did not lose a mech in these operations.
My main concern is that, me as French, I can inflict many losses to German player during the Battle of France. Historically, French did not. That's all. That's why I was willing to reduce the experience of the French to prevent me to do that. After sustaining such losses, I think this is nearly game over for my German PBEM opponent. It happen to me many times to fail in France as Germans.
German losses - Land: 382 - Air: 175
Edit: I guess I am getting better. The game must not be changed. The player needs to learn how to master it. But, this can be brutal for some PBEM opponent to lose in France whereas historically it was a big French defeat.
