In my last PBEM game by 58 I had +100k battle losses as Prusians (my opponent double that) and my armies were still fully battle ready - 70k in germany 80k in saxony and about 40k pommerania.
OneArmedMexican wrote:Which patch are you using? While playing with 1.02: I try to stay well below of 50.000 Prussian losses during the first two years (meaning until late in 1757). If I fail to do that, I am usually unable to keep all my troops at full strength in spite of putting at least 75% of my conscripts into replacements.
