From: The Old Northwest
And he probably never will since he doesn't get to play with his German supermen that just waltz into Urals without breaking a sweat.
Mocking someone is certainly not the way to go about this in a decent way. There is nothing wrong with asking questions that might need to be asked. Unless this game was made by God, my guess is the game is chock full of errors and omissions, and bias. But, since we humans are inherently bias (yes, most definitely includes me), we never see the bias, if it is in our favor.
That being said, he does raise a good question about the unit that lost 40% while remaining in the line. Is it conceivable that 40% is unrealistic? Possibly. More research would be needed to done to either confirm or deny the reality of such casualties, while not being in active or engaged in heavy combat.
If youre going to make the claim that something is "chock full of errors, ommissions, and bias", then you better have data to back it up. And without owning or playing the game then any point made is irrelevant, since its often made on conjecture using bad information (such as OPs misunderstandings of how supply works in the game and attrition). Its fine to criticize, but its not ok to make blanket statements when theyre demonstrably falsifiable (and easily at that), easily proven false, and do not provide sources for their claims.
