Tweaking China for AAP40



  • Umm, China loses 9 ipc’s of units, I lose 10, and I gain 1 ipc from the territory. Thus, I’m even on that turn. Since Japan starts with more ipc’s of units, trading evenly won’t hurt them.

    Kwangtung and Philippines are taken on turn 1. India can be taken with just 10-15 planes+land, while the other 10-15 are used against China or the US



  • Clearly, Math is not your strong point, as 10 is a bigger number then 9, if you hadnt noticed, and losing 10 for a gain of 1 is never seen as a good thing.

    Also reading dose not seem to be one of you better subjects either, because for some reason you keep going on about J1 attack stratgies for pacific 1940, despite the fact that this is the house rules forum, and its a thread about house rules for China.



  • You’re the one who started talking about ignoring China.

    I think you’re ignoring the 9 ipc’s the Chinese lose.

    I was talking about changing our thinking towards China. China, historically, was an independent country and did what it saw as being in its best intrest. It was not, as the game has them, subordinate to an Allied power, and often times did things that effected or even hurt the western allied powers in the asia/pacific theater. I was orignaly suggesting that it would serve China better, to try and coax the Japanese player into attacking the west forcusing its main attack away from China. I think that Chinas objective to win the game should be to survive and hold onto 6 (or 4) of its tt, the allies be damed, which would be more historical then how things are currently.

    China may be losing 9ipcs worth of infantry, but you lose a plane, and a plane is way way more valuable then 3 infantry. The plane attacks on a 3 or less, the infantry on 1’s. so according to odds, you have a 50% chance of hitting in combat with 1 plane, while those 3 infantry shouldnt hit at all on the attack, according to the odds. A Plane defends on a 4 or less, giving is a 60% chance of hitting, while the infantry hit on 2 or less, giving them a 20% chance of getting 1 hit between the 3 of them. Also lets not forget the planes abality to raise the attack value of the Tac bomber, which requires a 1 to 1 ratio. The fighter is more useful and veratile of a unit and should not be thrown away just to kill 3 infantry, it is a waste of resources.



  • 3 infantry have a 42% chance of hitting, and they’re 3 unit so even if one dies, they still have a 11/36 chance in hitting again



  • @calvinhobbesliker:

    3 infantry have a 42% chance of hitting, and they’re 3 unit so even if one dies, they still have a 11/36 chance in hitting again

    Which is still a lower percentage then the fighter, making the fighter more useful. Also, a fighter can rapidly redeploy to other areas unlike infantry.

    Either way, It is irrelevent to the point of this thread



  • On defense, they are even better, hitting 19/27 of the time, as opposed to the fighter’s 18/27.

    Yes, a fighter can redeploy, but they’re not that valuable to Japan since it starts with 14 of them.



  • You very clearly dont get it, please stop spamming this thread, go post your fuzzy math and J1 attack stratgies in the Pacific forums, please let us get back on topic and talk about how to tweak China, and how to better the game from the Chinese perspective.



  • You’re the one who started the discussion by saying  that japan doesn’t need to take 8 chinese territories.

    How is my math fuzzy? China starts with 12 infantry. Killing 3 kills 25% of their power. Japan starts with 14 fighters. Taking one out is taking out 7% of their fighter force and 3.5% of their entire air force.

    What I was talking about was in reguards to the Chinese NOT the Japanese. I dont believe Japan needs to focus on taking all those Chinese tt early on, its got better things to do. But this isnt really the place to discuss it at lenght. I made a passing comment, you are the one who turned this thread into another J1 attack fan boy rant. Also, anyone with a bit of sense would never make an attack with 6 planes and 1inf, if they can avoid it. Most people would better support their attacks so they wouldnt have to take fighters as casualities, which you can easily do in China as Japan. A  fighter is more useful, just because you have alot of them, dosnt mean you should be looking to lose them, its a waste of resources
