Is about supply

AND it sounds very much like the supply system in WitE2 lol. If it does turn out to be very similar to WitE2, then I would consider that a very nice form of flattery 2By3 helping Paradox improve their game lol.

Interesting. One issue I've always had with HOI4 is that it's always felt It struggled to balance mass market with the type of detail that I really enjoy in WITE/WITE2/WiTW.

You honestly can't compare HOI4 to WITE/WITE2. HOI4 is a WW2 themed historical sandbox. In that game you can bring Trotsky back as the USSR in 1936, pull of a world conquest as Luxembourg or restore the Byzantine Empire as Greece. Army organizations is incredibly abstract and the chain of command system is a joke.

HOI4 is fun in multiplayer with friends and few beers, but it doesn't even try to be anywhere near historically accurate.

Comparing WITE2 with HOI4 is like comparing LADA car with FERRARI )

Yh HOI isn’t a very good ww2 game. Good game, but I’ve always felt it barely represents the war. Frontlines move nothing like world war 2 (usually in one big mass). The tech tree feels like a who’s who of world war 2 myths (German themed one is all about mechanisation if I remember... Germany mechanised?!).
Real fun game though, worth it for mods alone. Really recommend Kaisereich to anyone interested in Alt-History.

Yeah i have to say i was delighted to hear paradox are going deeper with logistics. when hoi4 was first released logistics or lack of was a joke but they seem to be moving in the right direction now.

LOL. I am NOT comparing HOI to any of the WitX games. I was just pointing out that is seems like Paradox is copying the supply system from WitE2 to the HOI system. If so, it is, what I consider, a HUGE complement to the 2by3 team.
