You can use them until the last day but you can't withdraw ships unless it's they are in one of these places: (copied from Matrix forums, should be accurate but I haven't tested)

1. Any level 9 port.

2. National home ports of the United States, Canada, India, Australia, and New Zealand (with no port level requirement) [I'm guessing that this includes all the off-map bases]

3. Any level 7 or larger port on the US or Canadian West Coast.

4. Any level 7 or larger Indian port East of Ceylon (including Ceylon itself)

5. Any level 7 or larger port in South Eastern Australia, plus Perth.

6. Any level 7 or larger port in New Zealand.

After all the time I've put into this game, I had no idea of any of this.

I may be mistaken but I believe there is an auto-withdraw option right? Maybe it's a mod but a youtube tutorial mentioned it.

You also cannot withdraw if they are damaged beyond a certain % so be careful running ships into the ground assuming it'll be Eisenhower's problem.

Just read about this in a Matrix Games spam, what a way to learn about someone's demise. I can't claim I played his games much but I did own Western Front and had some good time with it until I got tired of the multi phase system. Steel Panthers was much easier to dive into. Someone should do a LP of every game that Tiller ever made.

The SS units in WiTE2 feel insanely robust. I got to Riga before the one sitting on Novgorod would surrender, and they can hold off multiple corps attacking a division in open terrain. Fortunately you can just go around them normally but it does seem like a huge delta between them and normal German units.

While their skill is questionable, weren't they typically better supplied as a motorised element due to being the SS? Playing Graviteam certainly made it clear to me that they're a pain in the rear end to fight.

I don't know how much is fixed stat boosts, how much is OOB differences, and how much is the AI giving them higher supply priority in this case. I'm sure it's somewhere in the rather long manual though!

that was very much dependent on the individual division. some SS divisions were indeed better supplied and equipped and were, to a certain extent indeed 'elite' divisions, but some were no more than a bunch of barely trained and badly equipped conscripts/volunteers. that important nuance is often lost

IIRC WitE and its successor both model this, and there's a world of difference in-game between the big "flagship" Waffen SS units and the crappy foreign legion-esque units and assorted dregs. The former tend to be pretty nasty because they have seriously beefy ToEs (IIRC they drat near rival a soviet Rifle Corps in size, and outmatch it in firepower) and tend to remain at high strength even late in the war. While the latter tend to be pushovers more often than not pretty much for the whole thing.

Mods please delete this if it's not allowed, but does anyone have a link to the PDF file of WitP manual? I bought the game and have been playing it but for some reason on the Slitherine/Matrix website it says I don't own it it so I can't download the manual, and I'm not gonna pay ANOTHER $80 just to have the manual.

I can log in just fine, it just doesn't show me owning War in the Pacific. I didn't pirate it, I have the $80 charge on my credit card, the website just doesn't show me as owning it for some reasons so won't let me download the manual.

This. The devs are proud of their manuals, they usually package like 2-4 different versions into the installer in case you wanted to print it out.
