you are one of the best players, so I always read your posts and try to learn from you.
In this game against Glorious Ruse, most numbers are comparable with my games. Except one: you only killed 3361 Russian airplanes in air combat. That is very, very low, no?
I only use my air force defensive (I never use the bombers, except in turn 1) and I somehow managed to kill 6.700 commies in air combat only losing 850 of my own.
FYI, if I look more in detail, the extra commie losses are across all types of airplanes: fighters, bombers, transport... all values are lower in your game.
Do you have any idea why that is? Do you put your airforce in reserve or rest already in September or so?
(And yes, I also gave up as Axis. The game is simply unwinnable as Axis in it's current state)
The air war results can vary wildly depending on how the player chooses to control the air forces, and how to use them. The air war also remains quite uncharted still, with various balance issues and features that some might call bugs ;)
I'm not sure which game you're referring to, but at some point it was considered a valid tactic to concentrate killing the pilots, which could leave T1 SU airframe losses really low.
I can imagine that balancing the air war is a gigantic task with all the knobs, cogs, bells and whistles included, and unfortunately I don't think that any amount of data infested with player preferences makes it any easier :(
But still, I think it's a good idea to gather game data (I love statistics!), I'm just sad that I haven't had the luxury to spend enough time with the game to share anything valuable :(
