Have no results to post because the game remains unplayable.

Listening to a lot of crickets lately waiting for a release of a patch to make the game playable.

Is a patch to make the top bar scalable actually going to be released, or are you just stalling until your customers give up on it?

Your definition of "unplayable" I'm guessing is extremely specific, as it's very playable by any standard definition and has been since release.

The .10 public beta, available in this forum, has the top bar fully scalable.

Please try to keep this thread on topic.

1941 Campaign
Playing Russian
Axis AI 110/Russian 100
.10beta

On T10 after putting 8 russain Cav units between Kholm and Peno (deep in woods) I moved them straight west for several turns and realized the Axis AI didn't even notice I was there. I added 5 more cav units on T11. T12 would probably mean I would capture Pskov and maybe even Riga over the next 2 turns.
I decided the I had busted the game and so losing interest I stopped. Maybe try again with the Axis AI set at 120%.

Has anyone else tried this tactic against the Axis AI?

T11 Total losses Axis/Russian
Men 175524/1311824
Guns 2412/22339
AFV 1835/7255
Planes 1104/7089

VP 474

Note: I did play against a human Axis last month but resigned after most of my units were destroyed by turn 6, I think. I didn't retreat fast enough.
I have another game against an opponent where we are on turn 5. Russians (me) are doing better this time after I learned my lesson that I need to retreat.

1941 Campaign
Player Soviet/Advanced Beginner
Axis AI/Custom (AI settings to 125, but player kept at 100)
Game version was the original release version I think.
HWM 606
Ending October 1944, Decisive Soviet Victory (captured Berlin)
Losses Axis/Soviet
Men 6577k/11M
AFV 36k/81k
Aircraft 16.9k/55.7k

The game went reasonably historically (other than the Germans going for Moscow instead of Stalingrad in 1942), but in Autumn 1943, the Germans began retreating all the way from their positions roughly along the line Leningrad-Staraya Russa-Minsk-Zhitomir-Odessa, to a line along the Vistula-Carpathians. In Hungary, the AI steadily retreated from Hungary's national borders to the Danube, without forcing me to engage them in combat. Consequently, I went from being roughly on-time to around 6 months ahead of schedule.

Stock 1941 Grand Campaign With Enhanced Theatre Box option "ON" (Thank you so much for this feature!!)
Player Axis/Advanced Beginner
Difficulty: Normal with all settings set to 100
Game Version was original release version with consistent updating.
HWM 636
Ended February 1943 as I just wanted to play to figure out how a lot of things worked.
Losses Axis/Soviet:
Men 1.8 mil/6.3 mil
AFV 9k/38k
Aircraft 6k/33k

Game went extremely well in 1941, I thought understood I the logistics system very well and I made several pushes that shocked me with how successful they were. Captured Moscow in Oct '41, surrounded Leningrad and captured Sevastopol plus historical line minus Kalinin, Rostov, Rzhev but made up for it a bit capturing Ryazan. Winter '41-'42 was typically brutal but I managed to hold my own. Nothing crippling. Supply situation was ok all things considered as well. Had a plan to withdraw every Panzer Division and send them to other theatres while pulling infantry Divs from those theatres to hold the winter line (only did this cause I wanted the panzerwaffe to be in fantastic shape when summer '42 came around.) So I did that and in doing so I sealed my fate.. Didn't realize that the trucks get sent into the pool instead of sticking with the unit so all the panzer div trucks I believe were lost in the winter being distributed to other units, leading to them being damaged. After winter I sent all Panzer divs back to map and in doing so screwed up the situation even more, my highest MP count for those units was maybe 27 and spent multiple turns trying to figure out how to correct it. My Truck repair pool was around 100k so I knew I had really screwed something up. Spent all '42 on defense trying to correct the truck situation (never was able to) and then after playing an all defensive '42/early '43 decided to resign the game. The screw up was completely my fault and I have no hard feelings, tough lessons must always be learned ;)

I'll be starting another Axis GC today with hopefully better results. Overall I felt game was going to be very good if I hadn't bungled things up with the trucks, even thought I could win the game in '42 as probably a quarter of the Red Army was in an enlarged Kursk Salient which I am 100% confident would have been cut off and destroyed with Panzer Divs at full/near full Mp's in 1 or 2 turns.

Western front and southwestern front placed in assault status and stacked to the limit and bashing any panzer regiment left on the front, The ai stalls infront of Smolensk and kiev but has some success further north encircling Leningrad and starting to push north towards the last ports over lake ladoga, soviet winter offensive in underwhelming in terms of land gained but the victories on rifle divisions and tank bridges means western front starts renaming to guards en masse. the 42 spring axis offensive occurs in the south routing several untested soviet divisions out of the way and charging down towards crimea, the guards tank brigades from winter are formed into 12 guards tank corps off the bat and respond to the axis crimea push by rushing to Nikolayev and cutting off 400k axis forces after the pocket is eliminated the ai responds by withdrawing across the entire front to get a shorter front line and the rest of the game is spent slugishly pushing across the rest of the map, romania flips in April 43 trapping several axis divisions and shrinking their ai frontline even more. the game ends with 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th 11th and 15th guards rifle corps storming berlin from 2 sides ending the war.

St2B
Axis AI custom (all standard except 110% morale, started with standard but switched to 110% morale about turn 10)
Thedoctorking/Experienced (from beta, plus many games of WitE1)
1.01.00_Beta/1.01.10
Axis HWM 674
Ending date turn 47, Soviet victory on points with 629, I had captured Riga, knocked the Finns out of the war, driving on Kiev.
Axis losses 3.3m men/40k guns/9k AFV/6,600 aircraft
Soviet losses 3.5m men/39k guns/20k AFV/17,500 aircraft

I reported on this one when it was happening in the beta forum, tl;dr: the Axis AI had some issues with maintaining a solid line. I took advantage a couple of times, then refrained in the interest of continuing play.

Supply delivery did not seem to be a problem. For units on map on turn 47, median supply level was 120%, median fuel was 126%. My army was pretty much at full strength, with median TOE% at 97%, but that was by dint of disbanding a bunch of beat-up divisions. I did pursue my usual approach of plenty of support units at the army level, so most armies had 5 artillery, 3 AT, 2 AA, 3 rocket, 3 engineer, and maybe an armor brigade if they didn't have an armored corps or something else (motorcycle, mortar, etc). I gave all the armored corps an extra armor unit (typically a heavy tank regiment) and two infantry (either mech or motorized). Mech and cavalry corps got a heavy tank and a regular tank brigade (or alternative, sometimes regiments) and something else - motorcycles, AT. Rifle corps got one or two tank and something else. I ended up with 1,852 support units on map and 713 on-map units.

Axis looked very weak in terms of manpower. Looking at the last turn's battles, the Axis were trying to hold front-line hexes with a few thousand men. They always had a second line of mobile units, but I was noticing fewer and fewer reserve activations as the last turns proceeded.

I would have enjoyed playing on and capturing Berlin in the summer of '44. No crying about a second front for us, thank you very much President Roosevelt. We would be happy to host the post-war summit in our rest house in Baden. Or Oslo.

41 Grand Campaign

Axis: me, evidently still a beginner.
Soviet: AI, all at 110.

Version: Start: 1.02.06_Beta (or 1-2 earlier)
Version: End: 1.02.12_Beta

Axis HWM: 511

Ending Date: T27, 21-Dec-1941:

Why Ended: Unlikely to avoid 01-Jan-1942 sudden death. So close too. Adjacent to Orel, Rzhev and Kursk; had Tula and Sevastapol surrounded, but stopped by the blizzards. Too bad, as the Soviet front was in tatters.

Losses:
Men: Axis: 495K, Soviet: 3,577K
Guns: Axis: 7252, Soviet: 57,572
AFV: Axis: 2244, Soviet: 16,634
Air: Axis: 2635, Soviet: 15,014

41 GC
actual start date 16 Oct 21 end date 14 Jan 22
Axis , myself an intermediate gamer.
Soviet AI all at 100%

Version probably 1.02.06 to 1.02.13
Axis hwm 747
Axis Major victory Jan 7 1945 T186 I had taken every point holding city ,the Soviets finishing with a score of -86

losses
Men Axis 4,271,986. Soviet 14,940,995
Guns. Axis 75,1121 Soviet 295,412
AFV. Axis 21,169. Soviet 94,552
Planes. Axis 12,259. Soviet 52,302

Half of my plane losses were operational, got to do better next time.

Phew, finally got this one to bed, quite a slog in honesty . My seventh GC start since game release day the previous six not amounting to much for me other than a learning experience.
I enjoyed the whole experience apart from waiting for Winter 41/42 to end . It took me 15 weeks to take down the three Moscow hexes and some serious allocating of S.U and fight/rest cycles for 9th Army who I had used for this task.
Going to start a new campaign once 1.02.14 is sorted.

Axis HWM: 498

Ending Date: Turn 29, Soviet Decisive Victory due to Sudden Loss
Leningrad was surrounded and cut off, but unable to finish mopping it up in time. Failed to push far enough in center/south, possibly too much focus on destroying soviet units instead of advancing.

Guns: Axis 4944 / Soviet 60386
AFV: Axis 1499 / Soviet 19293

known bug and will be sorted when it can be. Basically the routine checks for initiative before it checks VP against win conditions. This is probably the only turn where that causes a problem as in every other instance they are the same thing.

yes, you've won vs the 1944 test. See the vs AI AAR I'm doing to see the calculations off a game where the initiative change makes sense

Ah, OK...then it's celebration time with some Erika (Marsch und Soldatenlied) in background [:D]

Yup, reading your AAR and that initiative switch is actually reflecting what is happening on map.
So, maybe that 1st July 1943 hardcoded switch may not be really hard coded after all [;)]

Hi,

just ran accross that error.

1941 Campaign
AI/Custom (all 100, Enhanced TB control )
V. 1.02.13

Turn 106 / VP 723

Axis / Soviet
Loss 3,919,497 / 11,698,504
AFV: 11,413 / 54,255

Soviets broke after winter 42/43, they must have spent everything.
And the big corps units are more easily circumvented.

The rest of the red army is now trapped in Moscow.
To the east no enemy till Irkutsk,
but the time is just too short to dash the panzers to all the victory locations.

The bug kindof spoiled the party...


This is really, realy a great game. I play since there are wargames on computer (remember UWS ?),
but this was the most challenging. And you get a lot of playtime for the money (hundrets of hours).

Playing as Axis one can allmost feel the triumph with the first successes,
and later then disbelieve, fear and dispair as they just keep on comming and the winter gets longer and longer.

In the sense of a simulation, one can see how crazy it was and how hopeless from the beginning to attack the SU.
Winnable only for armchair generals.
But well they were Nazis after all.

Just imagine what might have happend if they had won (man in the hight castle anyone?).



[Edit] PS: Soviets now at -32 VPs. Might be an idea to put in a victory condition for such "no historic" situations.
VPs below zero...

I only did 2 campaigns 1941 with points, both of them turn 68 vicotry, level normal 100. I did both of them as the German; I think the AI is not very good in reading the map. AI should take care more of the tanks, hold the line, and sometimes I think the AI gives away too much land. Anyway amazing game, best game ever about strategy ww2. The detail of the game... impresive. Can we have a game like this one but about all the war, not just the East Front. Put together the whole conflict with these game mechanics and documentation.
