Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2 Order of Battle Update Announcement
Tue, 7 November 2023



A big update is on the way for War in the East 2.


If you follow the Matrix Forums (and if you're here I highly suspect you do), you will know there has been a big public Beta out for the last month with a slew of changes to WITE2. The number of bug fixes, tweaks, and scenario patches included in this beta is truly massive.

The really substantial part however is the orders of battle. There are now an increased number of divisional templates to represent the variants of organization that were adopted on the Eastern Front during World War 2. These additions are especially noticeable for German infantry and Panzer divisions, modelling the different forms of organization and equipment adopted during the war.  Just a short sample of updated features includes.

Data and Scenario Changes
• Major changes to the OB.dat file:
o Reorganization of data list by nation, unit type and size for easier and more logical viewing
o Comprehensive review and update of all Axis units (Italians are divided into Metropolitan, African and Russian variants of organization)
o Hundreds of new OBs to fill in gaps
o German Divisions now have numerous archetypes to reflect the varied nature of their organization and equipment (there used to be one standard infantry and panzer division - now there are numerous variants to use a wider variety of equipment)
o Better transition of Axis units that become equipped with Panzerfausts in late 1943 (all units should now have unit upgrades when the squads get updated to panzerfausts in Oct 43)
o Revised inclusion of German imported equipment into Axis minor OBs (Panzerschreks in Finnish units, German anti-tank guns and panzers in Italian, Rumanian, Finnish and Hungarian units)
o Different OBs with appropriate naming of motorized and non-motorized variants of units (Standard Pioneer unit versus a Motorized Pioneer unit)
o Reviewed/corrected the unit symbols used by OBs using the new editor feature and updated some units' symbols as being marine and light infantry.

These features are all already available on the beta branch of WITE2. This is available for download on the Matrix Forums or by opting into the beta via Steam.  We would like to thank everyone that helped beta test this update and the team members that developed it.

The Order of Battle update itself will be going live at the end of November, so you don't have to wait much longer to play with these changes.

War in the East 2 Order of Battle Update Out Now
Mon, 27 November 2023



The Order of Battle Update for War in the East 2 is out now. This massive update includes the addition of new OOB's to more accurately model the condition and organization of German divisions during the Second World War.

You can download this update via either steam or the Matrix Forums right here.

The full changelog of this update can be viewed here: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/download/file.php?id=1189456


Access to the full living update manual can be found here: whatsnew.pdf https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/download/file.php?id=1189455




The organization of the Grossdeutschland division in May, 1944

These new formations model both the differing quality of equipment different divisions were supplied with, and the time period they historically were organized.




The changing shape of the Panzer division from 1941-1945

There is also increased variety for other Axis powers OOB's. Italy now has divisions modeled for the Metropole, North Africa, and the Russian Front.




From the halls of Garibaldi to the shores of Tripoli

Finally, security divisions now make use of captured foreign tanks.




Captured French and Czech tanks as part of a security division

While the changes to the Order of Battle are the most noticeable feature with this update, there are several others worth highlighting. Aircraft with anti-armor cannons are more likely to deliberately target AFV's, all scenarios were updated to include the new Division templates, there are a host of bugfixes and scenario updates including the correction of certain formation and location names, along with changes to scenario reinforcement and supply pools.

We are very proud of this massive update, and hope you enjoy playing it.

New v1.03.09 Public Beta Now Available!
18 Jan 2024

There's a new public beta update available now (v1.03.09). It is available to download by selecting the beta branch from the games Properties menu, listed as "beta - Open Beta". You can opt out at any time.

IMPORTANT NOTE 1: All save game and scenario files created with this or later versions may only be loaded with this or a later version. Versions prior to 1.03.03 may not load these newer save game or scenario files. Old saves and scenarios may be loaded with this and newer versions.

IMPORTANT NOTE 2: The extensive changes made to the OB and map files in 1.03.03 will require that any modded scenario created prior to 1.03.03 will need to have their generic data locked using generic data from 1.02.52 or an earlier version. If you are going to start a modded scenario that was created prior to 1.03.03, make sure that you are using a version of the scenario that had its generic data locked.


V1.03.09 – 9th January 2024

New Features and Rule Changes

• New Game Option – Reduced Retreat Attrition – When enabled, routing units will suffer less retreat attrition than normal. The default is for this to be off. This value may not be changed once a scenario has begun in PBEM and MP games.
• New Game Option – Morale Mod (by country) – This allows a value between 0 and 20 to be set for each active country. The value set is added to the ground national morale value for the country. The default is for all of these to be set to 0. This value may not be changed once a scenario has begun in PBEM and MP games.
• Leaders in charge of air command HQs will no longer gain victories and defeats.
• In order to reduce failures when attempting to save MP games, the amount of time has been increased before a save will timeout with a failure.
• Manual correction (section 23.7) - Reserve units committed to support a cross river attack are not subject to additional disruption.
• Manual correction (section 28.6.2) - Damage is calculated by factory as follows: ((100-damage)/100) x factory points and rounding up. So a 12 factory with 40 damage would produce 8 (((100-40)/100) x 12) = 7.2 rounded up to 8.
• Updated the Living Manual.pdf file in the \Manuals folder. This is up to date with changes through game version 1.03.0.


Bug Fixes and AI Improvements

• Units that are class Mech-Infantry (ground elements of type Mech-Infantry, Cavalry, and several others) are firing in combat with 20% of their correct effectiveness. Fixed.
• Routed units in theater boxes will automatically unrout in the logistics phase.

Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2 Morale Update
Mon, March 25, 2024



Good news for all you Gary Grigsby fans out there, a new update for War in the East 2 is now live.

The Morale update adds a new optional rule about, well... morale. You can find the new morale settings, which allow you to adjust national morale by country in new games, if you scroll down in the game options. Also introduced with 01.03.09 is a new optional rule that re-balances retreat attrition. When enabled, routing units will suffer less retreat attrition than normal. The default is for this to be off. With this option enabled you are under far greater pressure to actually encircle enemy formations to destroy them, rather than purely by pursuit.

1.03.10 rebalanced air/ground attacks. The number of requested bomber aircraft for Ground Attack Air Directives must now be set to at least 10 (or set to 0 for Automatic). This update also saw improvements to the multiplayer UI, making it easier to report and log any errors you may encounter.

You can find the full changelog posted below.

IMPORTANT NOTE 1
: All save game and scenario files created with this or later versions may only be loaded with this or a later version. Versions prior to 1.03.03 may not load these newer save game or scenario files. Old saves and scenarios may be loaded with this and newer versions.

IMPORTANT NOTE 2
: The extensive changes made to the OB and map files in 1.03.03 will require that any modded scenario created prior to 1.03.03 will need to have their generic data locked using generic data from 1.02.52 or an earlier version. If you are going to start a modded scenario that was created prior to 1.03.03, make sure that you are using a version of the scenario that had its generic data locked.

Change History

• 1.03.10 public beta version made official

V1.03.10 – 6th February 2024
New Features and Rule Changes

• Changes/improvements to the Multiplayer Server system:
o Any error from the server will display a message window that requires the player to press
a key to close. Please note the error message if you are going to report an issue to
technical support.
o Game now logs server requests/responses/errors in a server.log file that is stored in the
main game directory (Gary Grigsby’s War in the East 2). Whenever the game is restarted
and the first server request is made, it will create a new file. It will store the previous
server file as server-prev.log. If you report a tech support issue with your server game,
please attach your server.log and/or server-prev.log file to your report.
o Other changes were made to reduce the number of automatic retries, reduce the amount
of logins, and avoid token expiration issues.

V1.03.09 – 9th January 2024
New Features and Rule Changes
• New Game Option – Reduced Retreat Attrition – When enabled, routing units will suffer less
retreat attrition than normal. The default is for this to be off. This value may not be changed once
a scenario has begun in PBEM and MP games.
• New Game Option – Morale Mod (by country) – This allows a value between 0 and 20 to be set
for each active country. The value set is added to the ground national morale value for the
country. The default is for all of these to be set to 0. This value may not be changed once a
scenario has begun in PBEM and MP games.
• Leaders in charge of air command HQs will no longer gain victories and defeats.
• In order to reduce failures when attempting to save MP games, the amount of time has been
increased before a save will timeout with a failure.
• Manual correction (section 23.7) - Reserve units committed to support a cross river attack are not
subject to additional disruption.
• Manual correction (section 28.6.2) - Damage is calculated by factory as follows: ((100-
damage)/100) x factory points and rounding up. So a 12 factory with 40 damage would produce 8
(((100-40)/100) x 12) = 7.2 rounded up to 8.
• Updated the Living Manual.pdf file in the \Manuals folder. This is up to date with changes through
game version 1.03.0.
