Seriously you think they didn't fight hard in 1942? You seem to think that it was picnic of somekind? Let me suprise you and tell that Stalingrad was one of the, if not most hardest battle of WW2, to both sides. And that is same in game from what I've been playing (over 50h in beta) and few hours released game. I play a lot germans, maybe 70% of games and I've been kicked in *** by Russians many many times, and visa versa. It's a ll about team work baby, nothing more, nothing less. Ok, one exception maybe, Gumrak, but rest of maps are pretty equal. Sure some maps gives slight advantage to an enemy, but then other will give you that if play Russians. No, Stalin didn't cry about how unfair war was, he send more men to the front, now, you go and do the same, make Motherland proud! :IS2:Red Army is fighting very hard to win on any map, game balance needs to be fixed!
With equal skilled players, it is tooooo easy for the fascists to win on any map!
If this is realistic, then Stalingrad would have been taken by the fascists in 1942.
