    I'm 10 minutes into his rapid fire jumping all over half the globe; maybe there's enjoyment in this for people who know the game in and out. But I'm not going to watch another 40 minutes of that. And frankly, from what I've seen with the submarines, it is so heavily abstracted that I just don't see how you would replay the battle of Midway with this game in a way that would adequately challenge the player with the kind tactical dilemmas that the historical commanders were facing when casting their decisions.

    Around the 12:45min mark is when he starts his admin duties which is a big part of this game. and were one of the challenges arises. As commented by @Captain_Colossus, it´s difficult to mix  Operational and a Tactical scale in a wargame, thus some things always get abstracted no matter what scale. It´s the nature of these games. Some do it better then others though.

    Yeah, it´s taking it´s time, but if you consider that they had to change game engine (Crytek), to the new Amazon Lumberyard some time in 2016-17, then it´s really not that bad, as they had to start from scratch amost.  Squadron 42 (ep1) is to be done sometime next year.

    Star Citizen (CIG) has said that they do plan to introduce "Titan" suits (armor) in a near future of there development. For all the Battletech heads out there 😉
