  1. That is not a sound business model as this genre appeals to a specific market - not to the general public. He was probably smoking a joint while he wrote it.
  2. Yes SC wins in comparison -no question- but a nice feature of commander is the manpower and how depleting your manpower can affect your industrial output. The AI is very competent and on high levels you will be soundly defeated.
  3. I like playing the reds and I generally go into a defensive mode except being active against the baltics until I have teched up and fully mobilized against the white factions. The reds have several fronts to contend with but if he does not play recklessly - his mpps, troops and tech will overwhelm the whites. I fight to the south just to extricate from the sevastopol area and may involve declaring early against the ukraine - fighting withdrawal from stavropol and eliminating the cav in elista.

Changsa seems to be a key in China and even spending carrier assets to pummel it and ignore everything alse in the Chinese theater. It's a tough nut to crack but it is the key I think. Do you think rolling all out in the East before the Reds were able to catch a breath would have made a difference? UK theatrics could have been ignored for the moment without US support as it would be easily contained. With Spain coming on your side I thought it was game over but I was mistaken. It's not over yet, and I rea
  7. not looking good for Adolf and Tojo here... I think CH has a clear initiative and advantage as the allied industrial might and beefed-up forces will now tell.
