Just wondering if there were any major changes made in the new MC.
i.e. changes in the save game feature (not just fixing the bugs)
something to give more of a familiar feeling to your core units

One of the things currently existing in MC system is that the core forces ("your" units) are always occupying the same spot in the game. For example, in MCNA, core forces are formations A-H. They are always A-H. Now in smaller scenarios, part of your core force may not be present, but the absent units are not replaced. That is, their formation slot is not filled in by other units. Knowing that (which I think is mentioned in the introductory text of the campaign, and I quote: "YOUR CORE FORCE "Your base or core force will appear to one degree or another in every confrontation. On occasion for the smaller battles the entire core force may not be used. "They are formations A through H. There may be more units in the battle, but your own personal force will follow you through the hard months of action in North Africa. You will have at your command the following units. "A Formation - HQ Unit
B Formation - A platoon of Mechanized Panzergrenadiers
C Formation - A Platoon of SdKfz 222 Armored Cars
D-G Formations - A company of MkIIIe Medium Panzers
H Formation - A Platoon of MkIVd tanks" With that information, you already know which ones are your core forces. If there is no formation E, then you know a platoon of MkIII tanks is not present for that battle. I hope this helps to focus on the core force.

I got all that from the beginning of MCNA. I should have been more specific.
Something along the lines of a post-scenario review of your core forces. I realize you don't want to give us the opportunity to upgrade every scenario, but just seeing their experience improvement flash by at the end of a scenario is not enoug, and the headquarters screen is not designed to be informative from that point of view anyway. How about something informing us of why whole formations changed equipment, where our other units are (when we don't get to use them), and the use of some kind of name for every unit(nothing like a blank space for the name of a core unit).
