It is hard enough to learn this game without wondering why troops didn't execute your orders. Once you get the hang of the game it is fun to play with.
A couple settings I'm still on the fence about before going "all in": Historical Attrition and Activation Rule.
I'm still having a hard time convincing myself that it's fair (playing on Lieutenant Level, Full AI turned on, etc.) that they shouldn't have the same attrition as I do. Most of you recommended Player attrition only. If I can't stomach that, is the next best option to just turn it off completely?
I like the concept of Historical attrition because I know that was an important aspect of the war but why do some recommend to have it off? Does it apply over a 120+ turn campaign?
Also, I'm not sure if switching over to the full Veteran Activation rule makes things harder on both me AND the AI, or just me.
Any input is appreciated since I'm going to be investing 60-100+ hours of real-life game time into this bad boy. Thank you.
