At the very least, use battlemap and upload a map file to show us the exact board state. The AC’s look freaking HUGE on that board, they are big enough to act as a causeway between EUS and WEu. I have better than 20/20 eyesight, was just tested last year. That picture is fuzzy as heck, really hard to make out exactly what land units are where.
It looks like Japan has 8 Infantry sitting on the islands. Considering most of the Jap fleet is sitting around looking pretty in Hawaii/Midway area it shows a lack of efficient utilization of assets.
With such a poor picture and lack of effort in setting up the game state I’m surprised anybody bothered to reply at all. Those who did reply have more patience and are better peeps than I.
