This is just silly
Germany does not get increased Industrial Production within germany for putting subs in the water
I suggested this method for simplicity’s sake
The alternative would be a UK National Objective that would cost UK 5 IPCs if a German SUB was in one of those SZs
The other reason I suggest this design, was I wanted Germany to get MORE IPCs than what they get in a standard game
Currently, with good players playing, Germany doesn’t have enough material to threaten Russia
This NO as written can give Germany some easy early IPCs (and potentially continued IPCs assuming they keep SUB production going) to become more of a threat to Russia
With AA50s, the idea is for Germany to threaten Russia, not Japan
To do this, Germany must get stronger
National objectives cant work like this, they arent doggie treats to incentivise a power into playing historicly, that is a side effect.
A national objective is what that power wanted to accomplish, the IPC bonus reflects both the addition of territory and resources, as well as national pride when it is acomplished
Putting subs in the water just doesnt do this.
These statements couldn’t be further from the truth
A succesful sub program would be a huge motivator for Germany, and tremendously increase national pride
There are other NOs that fall along these lines and if you examine them individually, you’ll see some which have nothing at all to do with monetary value of territories taken but rather more of the pride factor (no Allied units in Russia, Japan expansion NOs, no Allied units in Med for Italy)
Re: historical play, I think this is EXACTLY what the NOs were meant to accomplish
If you want it to do something similar, and fair……
Axis subs may attack allied national objectives. An axis sub, ajacent to an allied territory that is part of an allied national objective, or contains an allied capital may negate either the national objective in question, or one of its choosing in the case of seazones adjacent to a capital. If the sub ends its turn in an eligeble seazone, the National Objective is reduced by D6 on that powers collect income phase (place damage counters in the seazone in question) if that sub also remains in the seazone during that powers collect income phase then it may also attack the territory directly, reducing that players income by D6. This second roll may not exceed the value of the territory.
To put it simply…you cant give germany IPCs for blowing up allied cargo, thats just silly.
Instead, let the axis attack both IPCs like in pacific 40, and attack National Objectives, that represent shipping.
This is very inconsistent with how NOs work
NOs are simply a +5 IPC income boost for achieving something, no dice rolls should be involved plus the way you have it designed is much more confusing than it needs to be
