I disagree totally. UK would never be able to get a fleet. And US/G sealion on 3rd turn would proabably overrun London, 4th turn max. Russia usually commits most of its ressources against G, so I don’t see it causing a lot more trouble for GER. It cannot take Berlin before R5-R6, and that’s if G doesn’t turtle.
UK instantly loses E and W. Canada on US1.
Also, keep in mind that Japan will have a hard time raising its income. The 2 China/Sinkiang then… that’s it. The other ones are in Western Europe. Good luck getting your troops there. Also, no IC close to US or G.
Bottom line for me is London will always fall before Berlin.
I have to admit that you’ve drawn me much closer to the middle of this argument. I do agree now that UK is completely boned. Their income is a lost cause (Canada, Africa), and they can just do their best to turtle, playing only to not lose London.
I feel that if this happens it will take longer than 4 turns for the US/Germany team to take them. I think by this time Russia has made a dent on Germany’s eastern front… however I agree that Germany has the ability to send waves at London (taking very costly units from UK while still holding Berlin), while US viciously unloads upon UK.
Lol, within a paragraph I’ve changed sides. I honestly just now realized the monstrosity that US is a one-step transport chain away from the UK capital. Although UK buying 6 inf, 2 tanks round one, and similar defensive buys each round is worth noting. I guess what I’m trying to think of most now is- what the heck does Japan do? US can still keep a Pacific naval force to limit Japan’s effectiveness (Atlantic being unnecessary).
Ok, hehe. It seems like it would be very hard to stop the US and Germany from dominating.
