yes its WAD, stops ahistoric redesigns of the Soviets.
No it doesn't. I am currently in the process of taking every Rifle and Mechanized Corps and reducing the max TOE to 50% and shipping them off to the national reserve to rot. All combat units are being subordinated directly to armies NOW, not 20 odd turns from now.
More and more I am coming to regret my purchase of this game. There seem to be many factors in favor of this version of WitE, but playability is not one of them. The air game design is just horrendous. Clicking here, there and everywhere to find info is totally out of hand. This effort to tie our hands so thoroughly to history (for instance by forcing us to keep units we don't want or by tying the victory system to historical "capture by" dates) is turning this into Gary Grisby Do It Yourself Animated War in the East. I beginning to think that I would prefer WitE1 with just the improved map.
To me, too, a year ago, when I started participating in the beta test, everything seemed too complicated out of habit! I also thought, like you, that you just need to add something to WitE1 from this game. But now I got used to it and stopped playing WitE1! WITE2 has its pluses and minuses, but there are more pluses! Hopefully the WITE2 developers will also take some of WitE1!
Sorry, i use an online translator :(
