Hello everyone, back again tell a friend as Eminem once sang .

I have missed the game and havent played it for a long time but I have been reading the forums. During my absence I have relocated to a new country Thailand and also trying to change my lifestyle after some bad health news. Also trying to learn WitE2. It is in many ways a very nice game but I dont like it as much as I like Warplan I must say. I will start a GC in Wite2 vs a human and see if that makes it more fun than playing vs the AI.

Anyway back to this game. I am feeling a bit rusty and there have been many changes since I last played so we will see how it goes. Playing vs Harrybanana wont make it any easier .

I generally play conservative as I want to try out the balance of the "basegame" as in doing a 1941 Barbarossa and see how that plays out. It is good that some try out the outlier strategies but I want to see that the foundation is sound. At the moment it feels like it is not with the Soviets getting stomped a lot it seems like but the changes in 1.12 might make a difference we will see.

Good luck to HarryB!

Below the Axis tech.

Nothing special with the Germans I think. With the Italians the idea is that the infantry will all be converted to Anti tank and defend the motherland in garrisonmode whereas the offensive arm mech units and groundsupport AC will support the Germans in the east.

September 1 1939

The war begins again. In Poland I use only one armour as I like to use nr 2 to take Copenhagen. I actually killed the Polish cav unit after I took the screenshot so it actually does not exist.

I bombed Lyon scored 4 hits. Sent out the subs a lot hinges on them please Neptune give me luck! .

I was thinking of trying something different like going for Yugoslavia in the autumn but the weather will be bad so I think it might not be a good idea.

Poland and Denmark falls under our boot. Build a pz Corps. Feel strange that I wont be able to put the whole army in garrison mode to get those early builds. Been a basic strat for a long time. I remove some divisions from the westwall to use as garrison of Denmark and ports as jumping back and forth between modes is a thing of the past now.

Von Reichenau gained a 8 in mobility good for him .

The French take Luxemburg under their "protection"

The subs sink 5 MM and 1 escort but one sub takes 2 hits so not so good.

Start moving forces to the west.

End of 39

Some sinkings in the Atlantic otherwise nothing going on.

Sub war going ok 4 sunk escorts is a nice start.

My build is not well planned out. But my build for France 40 is 3 arm corps 2 mech corps 2 Stukas and 2 subs + some supply trucks and upgrades. To afford this I did take a slight economic hit by puting some corps in garrison mode. The thought process is that the subs might inflict enough damage to be worth it. We will see. What annoys me is I forgot to build a fighter that might end up as bad news.

Tech is going pretty slowly with arm and sub upgrades ok at 150 days but the assault is at 190 so no upgrades or very late of the infantry in France that also is not good news.

Of note is the lower Soviet forces pretty sure it is the mech corps that have been disbanded.

May 24 1940

Got a cold turn in March and took the Netherlands. First turn of May was raining so the Offensive started on May 24.

With Kesselring in command Belgium fell with small losses to the Germans. The allies did not contest in the air.

I took advantage of a division in the most southern hex of the Maginotline and broke through. Should make the whole campaign easier with all the southern VP cities and maybe Metz open for capture. Means I might not have to fight over Rouen which is always nice. If enough is commited a division can always be moved. I like to keep 20 str corps in each hex of the Maginot.

My subs did fine for a while but now 2 turns in a row I lost 4 points for small sinkings so have to retreat to port for a while not so good.
