Re: v2.20 addition. Vote

I know you know a lot more than I do about the Norwegian campaign (noting your location), but wasn't most significant fighting over in a week or two? I certainly understand it's very difficult to simulate what happened in Norway and France in CEaW. However, the fact is the Germans managed to conquer...

Re: v2.20 addition. Vote

Back on Norway. Oslo should be easier to capture for the Germans. In real life it was taken in one day by an airborne unit. In the game it take two corps plus air support at least 3 turns, usually more (this is including the turn to move the transports). Maybe there should be an option for an automa...

Re: Discussion on CEAW-GS v2.10

Back to Scotland: The new map looks like a nice improvement. One further change to consider--based on the map posted by Vokt it looks like Glasgow should be moved one hex to the southeast. It is actually a bit south of Edinburgh and probably should be in the clear terrain.

Thanks! And indeed Stockhold produces 35 PPs--double London or Paris. Surprising!

Re: Expanding the war: Netherlands, Rumania, Sweden, Norway

Is there a way to tell how many PPs a city produces? Does Stockholm really produce 35 PPs? That would be huge! At the beginning of the war all of Germany produces just 93 PPs.

Re: Scrap the German Fleet!!!!

Keep in mind that an infantry corp also costs 4PP per turn to support, so it would cost about the same as a BB throughout the war. So in reality, scrapping the BB only buys you about one additional corps. Also, with no German BB the Baltic convoy could become easy pickings for the Russian BB. I thin...

Re: An Alternative Idea for Barbarossa Supply

It seems to me that the problem with having supply level 3 in Russia is that the Axis infantry corps have their movement reduced to one hex in winter, and thus become easy prey for the Russians, since they cannot escape. This can lead to wholesale massacres of Axis infantry that is just too severe....

Would like to know this answer also

I think this is a good question, and would also like to know the answer, though I suspect that Svejk's guess is correct. I also think his suggestion is a good one, but I think I read that in GS 2.1 you will not need to use a focus point to shift back to "balanced" research anyway. I frequently run s...

Moscow was not seriously defended in this game

I think it's fair to say that Dan did not seriously defend Moscow in this game. Besides the points that Ronnie made, while Dan had a lot of units in the vicinity of Moscow, they were mainly behind Moscow (to the North and East), not in front of Moscow where they could have impeded the German advance...

I agree with Stauffenberg that the biggest issue it that the Western Allies can invade France with a powerful force in 1941 or 1942. More German subs would help reduce this threat, and maybe cheaper or free subs would help a bit, but I don't think the problem is just about subs. In addition to putti...

The first war game I ever played was Avalon Hill’s Gettysburg (1964 edition), which had squares instead of hexagons, and units were rectangles with distinct fronts, backs, and sides (you got better odds if you attacked from the rear or sides). I was about 8 years old at the time—my older brother nee...

Another suggestion for loss of Britain

How about if Britain is lost the Brits take a manpower hit, both to the pool and the per-turn manpower income.

Morris Strategy and Game Balance

I would like to put in my two cents worth. I too think that GS2 is unbalanced in favor or the Allies, and I think that Morris’ strategy is a way to expose the problem early. I think the most fundamental problem is that the Germans just don’t get enough PPs to build the strength they had historically...

Game freezes when subs attack in specific way

The following sub attack causes a game freeze: Russian convoy is in hex 25,1. Hex 25,0 is empty. German subs attack convoy from other 5 hexes surrounding 25,1. Game appears freeze during the convoy lend lease phase. Happens repeatedly. Leaving any other hex besides 25,0 empty solves the problem. Of ...

Could anyone describe the German "armor blob" mentioned above, and the Soviet armor blob mentioned in the new GS 2 brochure?

Looking for explanation of PP discrepancy

When I load a hotseat game for the 1943 scenario (GS 1.06) I see that the Germans are producing 201 PPs per turn and have % War Effort of 140. I am playing Axis in a PBEM game where in the same turn (70) I was getting 182 PP per turn (% war effort 136), and I have not been able to understand the rea...

Can only attack a resource hex with an air unit once

I noticed that if the Axis places an air unit on a resource hex (a fighter in Ploesti in this case) I can only attack the resource hex once with strategic bombers. My understanding is that you can only attack an air unit once. However, since the strats are attacking the resource it seems like this s...
