Since that’s what I’m famous (infamous :evil:) for, I’ll say it.
G40 is broken. Just like P40 was OOB.
Indeed. It atkes time to establish infamy, and you’ve been saying this since early on.
It also takes time to develop and less obvious strategies for a game this complex (Global 1940 is far more complex than AA50), but you haven’t allowed this time.
Yes, the haste with which you declare this game broken allows me to completely dismiss your opinion. If your are right, it’s a coincidence.
Case in point (as Robin already mentioned) AA50 was thought for months (or more) to heavily favour the Axis. Since then, some bizarre and sophisticated Allied tactics have been developed which can slow the Axis down to the point where the game is roughly even.
But you don’t find these strange but winning strategies by whining that the game is broken when the conventional and obvious strategies don’t work. You rack your brain diligently until you’ve explored every angle.
Until you show me a consistent Axis strat that can lead to victory with the starting setup…
And unless we find one in the first four weeks the game is broken? You do undertand the idea that one side can have an easier game when obvious strategies are employed, while the other side might have a stronger position when more complicated strategies are developed? It takes longer to develop complicated strategies than obvious ones (obviously), so it’s natural to expect one side will take longer to study and develop.
This is common in A&A. A&A:Europe (1999) was though to be too hard for Germany at first. The game is now considered broken in Germany’s favour (and the German Start is fairly simple). AA50 was the same. Even when Pacific 1940 came out the Allies were claimed to be winning most at first.
If you don’t want to take the time and effort to study AA50 OOB box that’s fine, run away and play alpha. We’ll let you know.
and even more especially, the Alpha P40 setup which people think makes the G40 setup more even…
Then I will counter with the game is very set piece. Do this G1 etc. The game is broken to me in that there is little room for Axis flexibility if you want to win. Relying on hot dice to win as axis is not a balanced game.
