So hard to win as Germans

Post by Zuxius » Wed Dec 15, 2010 4:37 am

I just read the errata rules that the Russians can get free Allied crud. Huh? I can barely get the Germans to reach the Russians on their knees just so they can beheaded.

Is this historical or balanced?

I'm not sure what you mean by "free Allied crud". Which "errata rules" are you talking about?

Perhaps he's talking about the Lend-Lease NO?

I think he's talking about the 2 free infantry per turn when at war with Germany rule, that exists in Europe 40.

I was under the impression that "free allied crud" meant something Russia got from the UK or US

I think it is significantly harder for germans to win in Europe only, either OOB or with the Alpha +1 set up for the fact that 75% of the US economy from global is dedicating itself towards Germany from the start. To be honest the Russians suffer slightly as well but there is a noticeable net gain for the allies.

Yes, the free lend-lease stuff from USA, bombers fighters, etc. They just land them in Russia and convert it over. You can send a ton of bombers over to Russia as well as fighters and tacticals.
