I think that RGW is a great game and very manageable.  I would like to see Ron revisit this game and remake it.

+1

However I do not think that will happen soon due to Ron's real life work schedule.  :(

Reworking RGW would be nice.

An interesting thread.  Our intent was to have WWII-Europe be a replacement for RGW.  What is it about RGW East Front scenarios that you like better than WWII-Europe East Front scenarios?

1. German infantry units are 5-5-3 in RGW, and 10-10-3 in WWIIE
2. Maps?
3. Breakthrough attack movement?
4. Or something else?

Thanks for the information. It helps me to make better games.

What I like about RGW is the 3 high stacking.  Three stacking makes calculating the attacks or defense better and more manageable.  That is the only thing I do not like about WWII Europe is the six unit stacking.  I like that you can right click on a unit and choose its action.  RGW strengths of its combat units are not overwhelming big in strength.  It is hard to put together, it is mainly the stacking why I like RGW.

Thanks, Ronster.  I appreciate your honesty.  There is much to be said for the simpler games.  We went with six units in WWII-E to allow for different size units and for certain historical cases where there were many divisions in a single hex (Stalingrad for example).  I could make 3 ground units maximum per hex as an option for WWII-E if enough folks would like to see that.

Ron,  I think that would go a long way in making the WWII manageable in making stacks only three high.  I would like to see if others would chime in on this too.
