I sort of tried to resist.
But in the end I had to pre-order.
This will be the ultimate WW2 and East Front game for a good while.
I've played games like Hoi4 many times hoping to get a good East Front titanic battle and been disappointed many times. Black Ice came close, and now trying World Ablaze mod. I am confident that WitE2 will not disappoint here.
After seeing Let's Plays and giving War in the East 1 a proper spin, then I'm confident that WitE2 is not as intimidating once you know what is going on. In fact I could argue that it's less micro than Hoi4
East Front is a special case and draw for wargaming. Two titanic heavyweights that looked like it could go either way. (Arguable I know) But still, like the best entertaining sport, it went one way, then the next and a gruelling match. Anybody remember the classic boxing, Ali v Fraser, etc? Sugar Ray Leonard, oh the days.
It's a game that gives me a truest 'operational-tactical' feel, and realism feel, and with strategic decisions.
All of the improvements of WitE2 over the first look great, well thought out and implemented. Cleaner and more accessible UI is welcome too.
Edited: Good luck with the launch and the longevity of WitE 2 project team.
Thanks to any beta testers or any involved who gave their time free into this wonderful looking game.
