1) Kárpátalja ~~ held all VHs

Core make-up
predefined by scenario

Bought during scenario
400-500pp of green refits for core - some units even twice :stress the only units that didn't receive refit were the mountain gun and bomber (and auxes of course)

Leaders
CR.32bis , Shock Tactics


Spoilers
From west to east:
# core+aux mountain units ignored the nearby flag+VH and went straight north for the SH (captured in turn 8) and AF (in turn 11)
# remainder of western units headed for Lakárd and, with some help from air and recon units in between, captured it in turn 8
# eastern units went for Szobránc and later Bereznye (the latter captured in turn 11)
# airforce helped were necessary - the air war went on during the whole scenario, air supremacy was achieved in turn 12 only
# reinforcements bought during the turns 4 till 7 for the eastern group and in turn 9 for the Lakárd group - and again for the eastern group, as well as the northern mountaineers, in turn 12 to stay below the cap

2) Nagyszeben ~~ last turn BV

Refit
all green

Attachments
Recon and Special Muni for 84mm gun
Recon for the recon car and cavalry
Entrench for the garrison and both mountain infantry

Upgrades
garrison to engineer with trucks

Bought
100mm 14M with mules

Prestige taken into scenario
0 :p

Bought during scenario
about 350pp of green and elite refit

Leaders
Construction , Aggressive Attack
37mm 36M , Infiltration Tactics (don't remember the last time i had this leader - and i thought it was infantry-only :yikes )


Spoilers
Could have been BV-1, but a nasty campaign feature made me play the additional turn: you have to play till last BV/V/TV turn to get all turn-pp :fit
That, and the 2 units at the southern SH still had some XP to grab.
# the 100mm "mountain" gun, cavalry, infantry-on-foot and both mountain inf started in the southern DHs, marching towards Nagytalmács. The battle took forever (turn 10). Out of this group, the 100mm gun and inf-on-foot traveled by train to the southern SH.
# rest of units in the north, taking care of the northern map half. Out of this group, the 84mm gun and Pak helped in taking Nagytalmács - and 1 inf operated in the western lands to grab flags.
# airforce helped were necessary - speaking of, particularly the bomber had too much spinach for breakfast :banana
# refit went mostly to the northern group, which had some minor problems (theoretically i should have send maybe 1 additional unit here, perhaps :lolnod )

:huh? i have nothing to complain about enemy leaders :bullhorn Nyald ki a seggem :soapbox


Spoilers
# deployed mountain units adjacent to the romanians - this group marched southeast to Perehonivka
# rest of units where ever they found a DH - forming a large unit attacking Uman and the nearby airfield. They later split up again:
## some trucked infantry, all trucked artillery, Cpt Csaba, the Flak and most experienced tank moved to Maidanetske
## rest mopped up the enemy south of the airfield, then moved to Zhurbyntsi - except for the MG (which moved to Perehonivka) and auxes (which were exhausted)
# the air war was fierce - but with the "ghost" xp-bars (fully gained because of ground attacks), the german fighters took care of enemy air fores
# considering the availability of auxes and generous BV limit, i played careful to spare the core... just to end up over the cap :doh :lol

6) Voronezh ~~ last turn BV

Played the scenario twice. During the first run damage to core was horrible (the lack of recon aircrafts is really showing now) and i missed the BV (enemy reinforcements in unexpected location/not mentioned in the briefing... speaking of, friendly reinforements are also not mentioned :nyet ). I then changed strategy, including HQ decisions, for the second run.


Sold
Support attachment of Luis (light inf)

Refit
elite for the MG
elite and green for the recon car
(all others were at full strength)

Attachments
Entrench for all inf that were missing
Entrench and Special Muni for Csaba (AT)

Upgrades
Csapa received 7,5cm Pak and halftracks
Wonderdoc reveived Bf 109 F
one 84mm gun to 105mm 31M with halftracks
sidegraded the non-free tank to Pz IV
(the Ju 87 looked tasty, but i ran out of pp)

Prestige taken into scenario
2 :whine

Bought during scenario
an airfield (in turn 3 iirc)
about 300 pp of refits

Leaders
20mm 38M , Overwhelming Attack
40M Nimród , Influence
105mm 31M , Influence
84mm 18M , Bridging


Spoilers
# mountain units, Pz IV, 20mm Flak, cavalry, 84mm gun, Csaba and the southern auxes (minus their construction inf and SdKfz 7 flak) attacked Gorshechnoye
# PzManiac also started in the eastern deploy zone, however leading the aux reinforcements across the river to Voronezh and then north to the enemy SH
# northern auxes and the Nimród "proto" attacked Kastornoye
# rest of core units plus an aux construction and Flak headed north from the deploy zone (artillery delivering some distance shots on Soldatskoye), bypassing the early combat area, and turning northeast to Chochol - on of this groups infantry split up and followed the northern auxes, since their infantry suffered quite some damage
# an airfield was built at (8,23) to better support aircraft

Could have been BV-2, but there was still some XP and pp to collect.
Could have then been BV-1, but at HQ of Don i realized that default SP for purchases also limits refit, so that i played the last turn, too, to refit the last units (except for Wonderdoc, who was till flying a CAS mission).

I lost fewer auxes than i had in memory :huh?

Csaba:
both soviet reinf battlegroups arrive at the edges of the map, why should their locations be revealed? besides the "larger" bg arrives at a very logical area :dunno total soviet reinf is 9 units, not too significant, players should expect 5-10 reinf in each/any scenarios, sometimes ai purchases more around its sh
:-o please let me re-phrase that:

Enemy and friendly reinforcements aren't mentioned in the briefing - i don't care about "exact" location or turn, but i do want to know if there is reinforcement.
At least if friendly reinforcements:
# arrive at all
# arrive in the north or west or ...

I like shorter campaigns - however, they a have subtile problem(*) : due to their shortness, players can't learn all necessary basics in a reasonable amount of time. I.e. in the 5th or 6th scenario it is difficult for me to see what is "logical" and what "should be expected" :huh? lets take WSFW as the opposite example: it is so long that you can (and also have the time to) learn all mandatory things during the first 15-20 scens and "live of that" unitl the final 48th scen.

(*) a "problem" is not the same as a "bad thing".
Specifically about Voronezh: in my second run, the russian counter attack on Kastornoye did not take place :dunno and the aux reinforcements were used to avoid the paratrooper upgrade while grabbing even more pp than the para could.
So, agreed, it is even difficult from a design point of view to make the play a fun gaming experience.
(fun could mean "non-revealing", too)
Hence back to the first statements:
# i like shorter campaigns
# enemy reinforcements are not needed to be revealed
# however friendly reinforcements "are" needed to be... well, not reavealed with all details, but mentionend with general direction

Not to mention that "someone" :poke is also the first to :whine and :burn if friendly reinforcements are not mentioned, especially when they could change the play of a scenario :-D

Finally, since the written word is a suboptimal way of communicating - and with Linda's epic words:
Remember: I'm a cat, as long as I don't scratch and bite, everything's fine. And if I scratch and bite it could be that I just want to play :D
Csaba:
ok, i see now, thanks. i'll add some hints about friendly reinf when it consist of 5 or more units, and some hint when enemy reinf consists of 10 or more units, with some sort of location, if necessary. i warn players in campain readme that ai always get some reinf
Thank you very much Csaba :bow

7) Battle at Don River ~~ all units escaped, held 4 VHs (TV)

Voronezh: June-July '42
Don: Januar '43
I don't understand why the halftrack equipment disappeared - if i was in charge i would have grabbed some equipment, at least for the Flaks :dunno

I started playing yesterday already, so i probably forgot 1 or 2 things from HQ.

Refit
Wonderdocs fighter wing received elite refit (actually: overstrength)
all others were at full strength

Attachments
Support for the 150mm gun

Overstrength
maximum for the non-free recon car, both Flaks, cavalry and Luis (light inf)
1 point for PzManiac (construction inf)

Upgrades
Daerandir (84mm gun) was equipped with 105mm 31M and trucks
Blitzstoper (bomber) was equipped with Me 210

Prestige taken into scenario
0 :p

Bought during scenario
about 130pp refits

Leaders
39M Csaba , Aggressive Attack
recon move on an aux StuG (after the initial aux leader was killed)


Spoilers
:crazy
Deployment:
Image

General idea: i expected the enemy to attack on a wide front, with his armour concentrated in the center - i had also seen the turn report with its "retreat 8 units", expecting an EH somewhere southwest (although i assumed it closer to my positions than it actually was) - even though my assumptions were not totally accurate, they served my (crazy) plan quite well (and now that its over: i do confess that even as late as turn 7 i was considering a scenario restart with different tactics). Anyway...

# team green: was using the forests to delay and if possible damage the enemy in their sector, slowly moving south - with great success
# team yellow: similarto green, however the tank helped a bit in the east (around turn 4-7) before heading back to the west - acceptable-to-good success
# team red: i didn't draw arrows "where did all units entrench for the fight" in order to avoid confusion. Except for the orange arty (which could support a large area from their position), the 2cm Flak and the aux AT (both should have been orange, too), these units moved into the forest, using it as a defensive and hiding postion. The success was great, but an HQ unit would have been better (i confess that i reloaded an autosave 4 times, else PzManiac would have taken his holidays on Fiji :stress )

Later strategy:
# green retreated to the EH
# yellow was mostly operational and continued the fight against the enemy, supported by an aux StuG
# red cleared the area, took the nearby VH and airfield - the Turán, supported by Blitzstoper, traveled far east and managed to take Buturnilovka, but other than pp this was pointless (however inexpensive - and i was prepared to cancel the attack, if there had been serious opposition) - meanwhile, all artilleries moved west or southwest

Auxes
# right at the start, i moved the Bersaglieri into a better position and the tank to the front (hiding in a forest, 2 turns northeast of its starting position, but it was great for delaying. once it became clear that the tank was lost, it took Pavlovsk - i had spotting on the town, since the tank had been force-retreated in that direction)
# the italians were quite good at tieing the enemy to the front, even though the losses inflicted were not as great as i hoped - still, delaying was number 1 goal
# the german Panzer-Abteilung split into 1 StuG supporting in the north and the other units speeding to Shchuche - they retook it and hold the position long enough to ensure an ordered retreat of the core
# from the italians, the Sem 47 (1 SP, finishing the scenario somewhere in the southeastern forests) and one of the 149mm guns (started with 6SP and arrived at the EH with 1 SP) survived :stress

9) Galícia ~~ held 6 VHs (BV)

I restarted once in turn 2.

Sold
previously bought attachments
Entrench of both Flaks, all non-leadered inf and Luis (light inf)
Special Muni of Csaba (AT)

Refit
green for Wonderdoc's fighter wing
all others were at full strength

Attachments
AT for Csaba and both Flaks
AT and Entrench for Doug (tank)

Upgrades
Csaba to StuG III
Doug to Pz IV

Overstrength
maximum for David and Björn (Flaks)
1 point for the cavalry

Prestige taken into scenario
0 :p

Bought during scenario
an airfield


Spoilers
In both attempts it looked like this:
# deployed the mountain division in the northwestern area, the other units wherever they found a place - strictly speaking: armor first, arty and Flak second, recon cars in between, infantry in the back
# core airforce was undeployed to see how everything develops

I restarted after the first AI turn, since i saw immediately that i made false assumptions - on the plus side, i finally understood how Csaba designs :banana
While the core moved similar to my first run (you can't do anything wrong in one turn :D ), i changed the defense positions of the auxes.
So, second run.

Auxes
# northwest-west - pulled the western arty+Flak closer to the Tiger group at once, while the Pak and tank waited (to eat some tasty recons) - in turn 2, the Pak also moved east into the forest, while the tank kept waiting
# northwest-east - used the hills and forest of Loyeva and Nadvirna as a defensive position (only to realize halfway through the scenario that hills are no solid defensive position :doh ) and used the Tiger as a roadblock in Nadvirna (every now and then jumping out and overrunning some breakfast)
# central and east - left the inf sitting in Sheshory as a spotting+blocking measure, the Panzer Abteilung rushed northeast, and the remaining units used the forests west and south of Zastava do dig in

The Tiger group, with the help of aux fighters+bombers (which were lead by Blitzstoper), held out long enough for relieve forces to arrive.
The "forest Kessel" northwest of Zastava (and a bit of help from bad weather) created a nice trap for the enemy, leaving the auxes in a position to start a counter attack on their own.

Core
# mountain units and the Pz IV F attacked Yaremche
# in turn 2, contrary to the initial plan, Cpts Doug, Csaba, Paqueo and Björn (tank, SPAT, recon, Flak), supported by the 150mm gun, Luis' cavalry brigade and Wonderdoc (fighter), split up to intercept a combined armour and mountain division (though i only saw the armour at first) which was heading down to Vizhnitsya
# rest of units attacked Kolomiya - except for PzManiac who build an airfield in turn 3 and only then followed the Kolomiya group (on the plus side, he did grab the XP trigger :banana )

The middle part of the battle was a huge mess with no clear strategy - but that, bad weather in combination with hills, and the overall late (turns 6-7 for core, 7 for auxes iirc) start of my counter attacks was probably the saving point.
The later part of the battle became clearer again, with main core units (from Yaremche and Kolomiya) relieving the Tiger group and minor core units (from Kolomiya and Vizhnitsya) supporting the eastern auxes in their attack on the enemy supply area.

The air war was brutal... for auxes :wink The craziest part was, well, who would expect AI fighters to attack an escorted bomber (with the bomber and its fighter escort both at full strength, well supplied and experienced) during clear weather ? Luck in unluck, the bomber in question was the Hs 129 tankbuster :stress instead of Blitzstopers Me 210 :phew

Almost all OS was lost (only David's Flak has still 2 points), infantry suffered the usual pounding, but damage to core was light otherwise.

10) Arad ~~ held 6 VHs (BV)

Sold
Pz IV F
AT attachments of both Flaks

Refit
green for Blitzstoper's bomber wing
elite for others

Attachments
Support for Patrick and Daerandir (arty)
Entrench for infantry (where missing, but sold exactly these again towards the end of the HQ) and Flaks
AD and Special Muni for Blitzstoper (bomber, towards the end of the HQ)

Upgrades
Patrick and Daerandir to 150mm 31M
cavalry and non-leadered regular to 44 regular with trucks

Overstrength
maximum for Luis (light inf)
1 point for PzManiac (construction)

Prestige taken into scenario
0 :p

Bought during scenario
152pp elite refit for Urica (recon)


Spoilers
# the mountain division, PzManiac (const-inf) and Daerandir (arty - funky oversight, since the latter 2 both have bridging) formed the southern group for Pécska (however, 1 mtn gun split of towards Arad immedeatly)
# Paqueo (recon), Csaba (SPAT), Para (inf), Patrick (arty), David (flak), a regular and the aux recon accompanied the new tank proto, forming the northern group, which later moved down along the eastern map border
# rest of units in the center
# airforce supported (when it wasn't raining) from west over the center and arrived in time in the east

(speaking of: lots of overcast and a bit of rain.)

It was a bit spooky in the middle of the operation, since a large FoW created between groups north and center, so that Paqueo split from his group as soon as possible (was still later than i wanted - have i mentioned already that a recon plane would be nice to have ? :lolnod ). When it became clear that the northern/eastern group didn't need armour support anymore, Csaba and the tank speeded down to Arad too.
Southern group crossed the river without problems and used railtransport to get to Arad.
When the enemy counterattack started, the weather became and remained sunny, so that airforce could join.
Hero of the scen was probably Doug, who "overwatched" the counterattack and made it so much easier to fend it off :tiger

11) Nagykároly ~~ held 3 VHs (BV)

Refit
a mix of green and elite

Attachments
AT and Entrench for the MG and new tank
Recon and Entrench for both recon cars
Entrench for all infantr (if missing)

Upgrades
Luis (light inf) to HQ with halftracks
MG to Zrinyi I

Overstrength
2 points each for Björn (flak) and both SPATs
1 point for Thomsen (engineer)

Prestige taken into scenario
0 :p

Bought during scenario
an airfield
lots of elite refit for various units during the last turn


Spoilers
Maskirovka worked so well that our strategy department completely underestimated the enemy's strength, confused the arrival times of friendly units AND didn't know that there wouldn't be enough troops to fully refit core in the next scenario :scared

In my first attempt, Para's engineers (turn 4) as well as Thomsen's engineers (turn 5) took their holidays on Fiji - since it looked that even more core would follow them (respectively finish the scen in halfdead or undead condition) i decided to restart, change HQ decisions and completely rework strategy.

In my second attempt i reloaded the last autosave, since unknowingly i couldn't fully refit core in the next scenario.
But first things first.

Deployment:
Image

Repositioned the auxes at Szatmárnémeti into a more efficient formation (yea, sorry, the 2 pics are from right to left - i have my confused day :wink ).
Team blue defended Nagykároly (red dots indicate artillery) - with blue infantry ready to cycle, in order to reduce their losses and Paqueo (recon) to sit where no enemy armour could bite him -, rest of core used the plains around Szamosdob to prepare the counterattack. Aux reinforcements headed to support the Szamosdob group (first team) respectively defense of Szatmárnémeti (second team - the infantry of this group crossed the river, rest of units took the bridge). Weather and HQ units were a great help to reduce casualties on our side.
Our counterattack started in turn 7 still at almost full strength - and was successfully completed in turn 12 without major losses (unless a Pz III counts as a "major loss" in '44 ;) ).

12) Cegléd ~~ held 7 VHs (BV)

Played yesterday, so probably a bit inaccurate.

Sold
PzManiacs (construction) Entrench attachment

Attachments
AD for PzManiac
Forward Observer for all infantry (except PzManiac, Thomsen (engineer) and Luis (HQ))

Upgrades
both recon cars to 40M Csaba HQ
Para (infantry) to 44 regular

Overstrength
brought both Flaks to 13
all 150mm arty to 12
1 point forWonderdoc's squadron

Prestige taken into scenario
0 :p

Bought during scenario
200-220pp refit for infantry


Spoilers/AAR
I just read Csaba's strategy - funny, i had a very similar plan :) (the differences come from AI behaviour, core composition and me not knowing the scenario - i.e. i was expecting the brunt of the enemy's attack in the north)

Weather and air war
Only one sunny turn (iirc turn 2), the rest was overcast until it started to rain in turn 5.
Mud in turn 7. Sunny in turn 8 (afair, it remained sunny, but i didn't really pay attention, since the air war was over in turn 10), dry in turn 9.
Because of the weather, neither side risked much. My air force was operating in the southwest - the enemy hid, only in turn 3-to-4 there was a bit of action, since an adventurous enemy fighter wanted to attack the rear of the mountain division (but was stopped by an AD-trap).
In turn 8 the air became hot, when all of the enemy's air forces launched a concentrated attack on Kunszentmiklós - they could be shot down in turns 9 and 10.

Deployment and early strategy
PzManiac rushed back to the defense line of Budapest (Gyömrö), in case something would sneak past my troops (he started returning to the front in turn 5).
The mountain division, supported by some minor core elements and almost all northern auxes (available at scen start) formed a line at the forests south of Dabas-Hernád.
Paqueo and my hungarian armour (starting in the western deploy zone) rushed down to Kunszentmiklós in the southwest.
The remainder of the core started in the eastern deploy zone (with Urica's recon cars and all 150mm arty at the front for some sniping, if possible - it was, gaining the 150mm guns their 5th xp bar) and quickly moved to Pilis, using the hills and hinterlands as the entrench area.
Once the core had moved out (still in turn 1), an aux infantry defended Cegléd to delay the enemy a bit (and lure the AI, if it had no spotting), while the aux mountain engineer moved to Ceglédbercel (same idea - soon proved to be not necessary).
Aux reinforcements helped in the north.
The idea was to let the enemy expend his momentum against prepared arty defenses - worked quite well in the end, but i was a bit worried in between, especially when the airfield (30,6) was lost in turn 4 (could be immedeately retaken - the worry was not needed, as this was the farthest north that the enemy reached) and considering that i confused the enemy's line of advance.

Later - north
Beginning in turn 4 it seemed that the enemy's momentum was spend and in turn it was almost gone. Aircraft scouted the area and indeed found nothing left except for far-away artillery :huh? at once i divided the core units of the northern group roughly into a 2/3 and 1/3 size, with the larger group heading down to Dabas and the rest (including the aux reinforces) starting the counter attack on Cegléd.

Center
The battle was really sick, i suppose that parts of the AI units that should have attacked in the north operated here (surely supported by even more reinforcements from the south).
Artillery, aux tanks and Csaba could keep the enemy armour at bay, but it was not very pleasant. The peak of the battle was in turns 5-to-7, with an aux Pz IV H destroyed (turn 5) and Doug ending up with only 2 SP left :stress (you can surely imagine what happened when an aux unit discovered the replacement trigger :phew ).
With the additional arty (and a second HQ) from the northern group, as well as the Panther from the western group sneaking past the enemy lines and starting to bite the enemy's artillery, the battle could finally be turned in our favour.

West
Was rather relaxed. The initial attack was stopped dead with the help of air force (i was seriously dreaming of a relieve attack from this group towards Dabas or a counter towards the south in turn 2-3 :lol ). The later attacks could be contained thanks to weather and the nearby river.

Late
With the supporting units in the center being able to split againg (the Panther and Csaba rushed down to Kunszentmiklós, since during the rain period aircraft discovered something funky), clear weather for the airforce and dry ground, the battle was quickly turning to our favour. The only fancy maneuvers in the last couple of turns consisted of my expectation, that there wouldn't be enemies sitting on the small flags around the map (not 100% accurate, but there was no SP loss - have i mentioned already that a recon plane would be godlike to have ? :-D ) so that i mindlessly send infantry to capture them - the only exceptions were in the far southwest (where hungarian armour and Paqueo had not much to do, so they spotted their path) and center (overflow of units).

13) Operation Konrad ~~ 10 units escaped (BV)

Refit
brought all units back to strength (except for the proto :ohno )

Upgrades
Doug (tank) and Csaba (AT) were equipped with 44M Tas

Overstrength
1 point for Wonderdoc's squadron

Prestige taken into scenario
0 :p

Bought during scenario
200-230pp refits


Spoilers
Honestly, i only knew how the victory condition worked and thus had no clear plan to take all map-pp - if there hadn't been auxes (or core HQ), i would have left much more pp behind.

The Turán, Zrinyi, Patrick (arty), non-leadered 150mm gun, David (Flak), Thomsen (engineer), PzManiac (construction), a regular, Paqueo and Luis (both HQ) accompanied the new tank proto. They scratched Kápolnasnyék in the north, but thanks to rain could sneak by unnoticed and quickly headed for the EH at Érd.
The rest if the core started in the southwest and operated on the diagonal from the deploy zone to Ercsi.
Auxes took care of the central area from Székesfehérvár to Kápolnásnyék.

14) Unternehmen Frühlingserwachen ~~ held 7 VHs (BV)

Didn't finish yesterday - but the scenario is a :monster anyway, devilishly fun :) but :monster

Sold
all Forward Observer attachments from infantry (ground condition in last scenario made them practically pointless, and this one didn't look different)
all Support from artillery (similar reason)
AD from PzManiac (construction)
Entrench from both unleadered regular infantry

Refit
brought all units back to strength

Attachments
AT and Entrench for the new tank proto

Overstrength
the three 44M Tas AFVs and Blitzstoper (bomber) to 12
the three 150mm guns, David (Flak) and Wonderdoc to 13
maximum for the Zrinyi and both mountain guns (15/15/14 respectively)

Prestige taken into scenario
0 :p

Bought during scenario
David (Flak), the unleadered 150mm arty, and PzManiac received lots of replacements


Spoilers
I forgot to make a "deployment" save - but going from memory:
# southeast/southcenter: the mountain division, Turán, Paqueo and a regular inf
# southwest: the unleadered Tas tank, Csaba (AT), two 150mm guns (1 leadered), a Flak, PzManiac (construction) Luis (HQ), and a regular (that was send down to defend the starting VH)
# rest in the north

The mountain division moved east, with Csaba joining them.
The southwestern group + auxes went on the diagonal towards Soponya.
The northern core group moved along the map border towards Seregelyés in the northeast. The northern auxes towards Polgárdi.
Lots of cities were bypassed until the late turns (after turn 10).

In turn *i have forgotten* it became muddy and in turn 8 the ground dried.
This allowed for a quicker advance, but also led core units into enemy reinforements - those spooky encounters caused lots of ouchy.

At each VH i left some units behind.

Core loss: PzManiac became the Hero of Enying, while defending the town against countless enemy infantry without proper support on his side.
A relieve force arrived too late to save him though :ohno :rip

Campaign critique

Negative feelings came almost exclusively from missing info about friendly reinforcements, but Csaba adressed this already.

There are 2-3 :monster scenarios, that can be tricky:
# Battle at Don River
# the other being Unternehmen Frühlingserwachen (and probably Konrad III)

The campaign has nice difficulty, excellent change of scenario setups and (to my surprise, honestly) i think the replay value is above average, despite HRA being a limited deployment campaign. Core composition, leaders and strategy can make a change - and as can be seen in the AAR threads, there is a lot of difference (in a positive way) at the difficulty levels.

I enjoyed the play very much, thank you Csaba - and CC Team for picking this campaign as a CC :clap :bow
