But they are rare [&o]

I'm not that good, I'm just "way" overrated. Plus aren't the Soviets supposed to "win" ;-P

Until the Soviet support units issue of Engineers/Sappers not assisting in Digging in, the Soviets will have a very, very hard time in 1941.

Noted. I have always had better luck getting a game as the German than the Soviets, so wanted to test the German waters since no one took my post for a German player which I was willing to play the Soviets even "with" the sapper's not assisting digging. Along with giving the Germans all the benefits of a "pro" German game setup in that post. Essentially making the game very interesting on the Soviet side, I like challenges :) Either way I havent heard much of anything on either post. So I guess it is time to get a new "account" & "username" ;-}

The bug was there since 1.08.05 according to morvael so most of the recent balancing was done with the bug, I think the current versions are well balanced and you can always adjust settings slightly.

Being "picky" with the opponents makes finding some more difficult. Nothing bad about this as you invest much time in a game and doesn't want to see it wasted in the end.

I dont know about since .05 being "well balanced" as an accurate statement. Against good German players Soviets had a very hard time in 1941 even with the engineers/sappers assisting as per how they should work in the game.

Since this has somehow been removed from the game we have seen game after game where it seems the good German players are doing overall far better and basically auto winning the games in 1941/42.

As this bug/error not only weakens the Soviets in 1941 but also 1942 as they have access to very few corps units in 42 until late in the year to attach the sappers to, to assist with entrenchment.

This is actually a pretty major bug----and you can see the results in all the games post .05

unfortunately it takes a very long time to see how balanced something is, but I think early game results from the more experienced players are showing that Soviet defenses are very easily penetrated/encircled/destroyed in the early game due to this bug. As effectively the Soviets wont be able to defend anywhere because the construction value of basic/low experience units will not allow them to dig in an entire front enough to delay a german advance in 1941 without the sapper/engineer support.

Even before this bug the soviet player had to choose where they wanted to be strong at and concentrate their sappers/artillery along with best leaders in that one front area....due to this bug that wont even work to make one area very difficult to take. Also the infinite supply issue skilled German players can abuse makes the panzer ball even more effective due to low soviet entrenchment ability....

Just observations.

With a reply from only 1 person in the two posts it is hard to be "picky" ;-)

Build RR Brigades. They build like crazy and will repair your RR lines come winter.
Then, later, switch to sappers, etc...

But they won't help digging as well when attached to a HQ.

We're all afraid of you [:D]
Seriously, would love to have a second game but just can't due to RL. Perhaps if I manage to finish a turn in under 4h I'll take a second.

Sure? They used too.
Perhaps someone with more knowledge can confirm.

Quite sure yes. According to morvael the bug is that no support units were sent from the HQ to help units digging, no matter which type of support unit is. I did the test with sappers only because it is somewhat hard to get construction units with high construction value due to experience and whatever reason.

I will take the germans with the settings your propose but I cannot handle more than a game at the same time....

Understood Stef78 :) There are no worries at all. When you get some time in the future maybe we will cross paths again :)
