I think your missing the point.Its not ment to be a war winning offensive spring-board,
I am aware of this… it uld rather be a war winning defensive as you described it.
but a place that Japan has to attack
Japan attack HK anyway with or w/o IC - b/c of the NOs.
Ignoring HK with Japan is simply not possible I guess…
and send a good chunk of dedicated offensive resources
enough offensive resources are already there at the start,
it only delays striking china for 1 (maybe 2) turn(s)
and where the British can hope to inflict serious casualties.
thats the only good point, but if it fails you loose much IPC you could have spend in India for 1-3 turns. It leaves you with no significant defense forces to stop the japs from going to india. In fact it makes them easier for it - at least thats my evaluation.
In this way, it keeps Japan from running amuck in the DEI for a turn or 2. In conjunction with the US move in the Phillipines, it forces Japan to attack these very strong defensive positions, where casualties could be very serious. Now Japan is forced into playing a reactionary game, as opposed to the allies. I supppose Japan could attack the US and UK on turn 2 if they wanted, but they would then have to deal with the other axis players wanteding to smack him more than likely grin
OK from this point of view I understand your idea, but I am not really convinced…
In the end all Allies (except US) to their best to slow down the axis (at all costs) until US joins the war… This way you will win nearly every game as allies, extremly boring I think, but thats how the game works. So Yes this strat could work BUT in AAGlobal it depends on how your Co-Axis player will act or react, so your question cannot really be answwered I think…
It’s in the Pacific '40 errata.
Indeed it is, a longt time now - bought Pacific in Feb/March this year,
the errata was already available at this time,
so look out for it
Also, I have heard a bunch of people mention something about reducing the starting Japanese airforce by 7 planes, dose anyone know where this is comming from or if this is offically posted?
It called the Alpha Scenario, you can find it on Larry Harris Site or here somewhere
(sould have been made sticky thread from the admins :roll:)
There is alo more changed, additional Inf for China, moved UK ships (so Japs cannot kill transports in J1 attack) but also the Aircrafts of the allies were reduced in the same scale.
