Let's keep only one thread active per scenario. What do you think about a particular scenario. Was it too easy, too hard? Did you win or lose at first? Post descriptions of your brilliant victories and unfortunate defeats here.

Well OK, but if the supply source was in Stalingrad itself, you'd still be forced to defend it. You couldn't just retreat like you did in your example, otherwise the Soviets would cut it on their turn 1 already.

Beyond turn 1, obviously if you're going all-or-nothing for a BV on turn 3 you simply don't have to defend the supply source period. But it's not a sure thing that you'll get it in 3 turns. If you don't then everything falls apart if you let the Soviets cut supply.

In this way, a 3 turn BV would be something that's doable but not really rewarded (you get the same score). Sounds about right for me...

Well, depending on how hard you hit the Soviets, 2 mobile units that can attack will usually still be enough to get a BV on turn 4 I'd say.

Still, the BV limit feels a bit generous. Lowering it to 3 would obviously be a bad idea, but 4 is quite possible without getting lucky aside from not getting mud near your mobile units.

Oh, I'm not against lowering it to 4... especially because this scenario doesn't lead anywhere in the campaign, so you're getting a BV just for glory.

I do want to make the adjustments that deal with "win in 3 turns" situation first. When this is OK, we can lower the BV limit to 4 if it remains doable without excessive luck, sure.
