I think it is interesting to see how several NO's "overlap", or are mutually exclusive (is proper english?)
For example, if Allies take Fra, not only do they gain +10IPC in bonus income, they also deny Germany 5IPC in bonus income...
However, my question regard these two NO's:Germany
* Axis control of either of: Karelia S.S.R. or Caucasus = 5 IPCsSoviet Union
* Allied control of Archangelsk + no UK or US units on Soviet-controlled territories= 5 IPCs
If KAR falls, would you be prepared to forfeit the Russian NO above, by liberating it with UK/US Troops.
My own answer to that question would be a resounding YES. This it would be for two reasons:
- You forfeit 5 IPC, to deny the enemy 5 IPC.. (rather straightforward)
- You deny the enemy the chance to build units directly on the front line
It seems like a no-brainer to me. But maybe some else has some other take on this issue?
