I was never nerdy enough to enquire which Dvorak that was, but the guys I knew had a script to automatically crawl and index wiki pages - they were very excitable. 

HOI looks very interesting, does it have a high patience factor? 
Have you played any of the other Paradox games?
Stellaris (space 4x style)
Hearts of Iron 3, (previous ww2 sim, but oddly more involved than 4, 4 is a bit more streamlined)
Crusader kings II (guess what this one is about?)
Europa Universalis IV (16th c europe and onwards)

They're rather involved games I wouldn't say you need patience more of a micromanagement mania complex, I have played some of these games by starting in the evening then having the wife come down in the morning and say "you didn't come to bed at all?!" and I then had to go to work (lame). they're that involved, you can get very lost in them "just one more click"
jump on YT and have a look at some of the playthroughs for HOI4.

Yeah, I've had all the main paradox games for the last few iterations - Currently playing HOI 4 as Communist China, it's quite the challenge!

Getting a bit of an annoying bug actually (I think it's a bug anyway, would be weird if not), anyone had this before?

Currently fighting against Japan, as part of the Comintern. My Soviet ally has sent divisions to fight alongside me, as you'd expect when they're also at war with Japan. We're pushing Japan back, nearly to the point where we can invade Korea and liberate the remaining areas of China. However, all of a sudden the Soviets pull their entire force away from the front lines and start walking back to Europe to line up against Germany (Who they're not at war with - The Western allies are still fighting in France/Low countries).
Japan, naturally, began pushing through all the holes left in the front line, destroying many of my units, and threatening to overrun all of China again.
Really kind of frustrating, haha, given that Communist China alone can't muster the strength early game to defeat Japan, so my Soviet ally is basically screwing me over

It's not a bug persay, just the AI logic is kinda f'd. They probably are being declared on by Germany, and that usually causes AI to pull back most of their troops against whoever is declaring war on them.

Yeah, I figured as much. Just very frustrating when you're playing a minor country. You rely on the majors for support, and the shaft you, haha.
I guess I'll just have to hold out until they realise Japan have now taken Vladivostok and are advancing into eastern Russia

So... after about 3 weeks Soviet Russia figured out that Japan were pushing into their east, and redeployed. Seems to have settled now, they've got stacks of troops on the German front, and have left enough near me so the front doesn't collapse.
We've lost a lot of ground, but it's now stable

This is fine for me, as I can take the lead on offensive action while the Soviets plug the line with their larger manpower
