Simpler but not simplistic.

And guess what, you will have the possibility to finish several games on both sides while with WITP-AE, you will have finish ONE game in the same amount of time.
It depends on what you are looking for.

What I like of Warplan is that it gives you a small(ish/er) amount of micro managing that actually makes sense from a 5 star general perspective, while WITE gave you the option for a lot micromanaging that had very little effect overall and was also open to abuse one one had figured out to max/min every feature.

I played WIP, by email more 4 years long game, I'm playing WIP AE today, as allied, probably long period too except If I lost soon according to the point level rule, thats possible ;(.
But I was curious about this game and the interest to play it in place of WIP AE , one day .

I would completely disagree with that. I am not a modern gamer and to me Warplan is in the sweet spot for games I have played and like to play.

Warplan is exactly like the board games I loved playing 30 years ago...War in the Europe buy SPI (1976).
Not sure if you ever played that, depends on your age I guess.
But to me this is very much like that is scope.

NOW I am assuming Warplan Pacific will be like Warplan Europe.

I LOVE the idea of WITP-AE and really want to play it but in watching and listening to other players...I don't like the idea that it will take 3 years at least to play a game, but I love the idea of it being that detailed.
BUT I would rather have combat be simultaneous that stack picked. That is much more interesting as each side gives orders and you see the outcome like WITP-AE.

Most pushed modern war games are to high level for me to enjoy...more Axis and Allies type games. Those are great for an evening.

You want to play a game that takes a day...Axis and Allies
You want to play a game that takes a year...Warplan (not against the computer but a human)
You want to play a game that takes 4 years...WITP-AE.

When I retire hopefully I can be playing WITP-AE and live through a game.

Or, it's a game made for people that have jobs and lives and can't devote dozens of hours a week for several years just to complete one single game of WITP AE. The game isn't simplistic at all, it's just not to the level of WITP AE which is essentially a full time job in a game.

And also for those who would like to complete at least one game before they leave this earth.
