Wargame AirLand Battle Next Month; Preorders Get Beta Access

Focus Home Interactive announces that preorders are now underway for Wargame AirLand Battle, adding that Eugen Systems upcoming sequel to Wargame European Escalation is to be released next month (Steam specifies May 22nd). These are being accepted on the game's website and on Steam, and this advance commitment will grant immediate access to the closed beta test, and there is a 25% discount for those who own the first installment in this real-time strategy series. Here's the deal, which references the visuals in this batch of new screenshots:
Wargame AirLand Battle, the sequel to the explosive real-time strategy game Wargame European Escalation, presents through 6 new screenshots some of its new battlefields, playable right now in early access Beta for all players who pre-order the game on Steam and the official website.

These screenshots show the huge gap separating the former battlefields from European Escalation to those of AirLand Battle. The new maps have evolved a lot since European Escalation: they are more varied, but also richer and more detailed, displaying impressive reliefs and huge urban areas, which all increase the strategic depth of Eugen Systems’ latest game.

The early access Beta gives an exclusive and immediate access to the ‘Destruction’ multiplayer mode, with the first 4 playable maps and pre-made army decks for all 12 nations of the game. Enough to plunge happily into the battle before everyone else, and participate in the last online tweaks before the official start of the conflict next month!

Good news never come alone: a special offer has been specially prepared for Wargame European Escalation players. For their pre-order, all owners of European Escalation get, ontop the Beta access, an exclusive 25% discount on Wargame AirLand Battle pre-order (on Steam and the official website)!

Wargame AirLand Battle will be available on PC in May 2013.

What I found was that the game doesn't really do a good job at teaching you what kind of units you'd need to deploy for a mission and the differences in between them.
At least in the single player I am just guessing every single time what I'd need for the missions. Sure more expensive units are better but until you play the game a lot and learn the differences between units and find the few Goldilocks units the game can be frustrating.
Also if you unlock the wrong units throughout your career you can get stuck on a mission. That is where I am at at the moment.
I've tried different combinations of units but no luck. It looks like some of the missions are off balance or something. Some feel easy some really tough. I especially hate those get here within a certain amount of time to help these units, type missions.

Anyways I did not mean to rant I am just a bit frustrated with the game and was hoping the sequel would be somewhat better in that regards but by the looks of it I was the only one with issues like that and instead of making the unit selections a bit easier they've tripled the available units so it will be even tougher to find the right combination of vehicles and planes for a certain mission.
