CC, I didn’t say you would lose 50-100 IPC of equipment, read what I wrote more carefully before jumping down my throat.
i didn’t jump down your throat. also one would likely lose the 50-100 ipcs worth of units you claim would be needed as defence when Japan became determined
I didn’t say you put 3-4 fighters there so don’t be so defensive. The author of the thread said to put a russian fighter there, you would eventually put your 3 fighters there, that makes four, even if it didn’t you can’t jump all over me because my force mix didn’t exactly match what you would have there after 3 rounds. It’s a rough guess that is how much equipment would be there.
not being defensive, just trying to imagine a time when i’ve had 4 ftrs there. Also didn’t “jump all over you” - just considering that 4 ftrs there might not be a bad idea. You’re a little jumpy today, aren’t you.
I never said it was wrong to do this, just that it does tie up lots of equipment.
true. i’m not arguing with you.
As for building infantry with a new factory, I don’t doubt somebody has done it, but honestly, how often do you see people just building tanks, purty often I say.
I never said the factory in India was wrong so relax, jeez. If you think it’s such a good idea then use it against me.
taking this discussion pretty personal, aren’t we?
and you often see people building tanks there, it may be done depending on what the allies wish to accomplish and how they think they may best delay the Japanese plans. You were right previously when you said that the UK player would just lose tanks instead of infantry. I believe that if you use the UK factory as a stalling tactic, this is exactly why you build inf there - put the extra cash into UK ftrs and boats
Of course you’re right that one should not always base everything on mere IPC value of a battle. But it is often one good metric umongst several.
I’m just curious as to why you would still build a factory if you felt you would just lose it anyways. Sure it does slow down the Japs but it speeds up the Germans. shugs Every ploy has it’s pluses and minus. But until I start to lose as the axis consistantly against the allies who use the factory in India strategy I won’t start using it.
one always builds units that one feels they will lose. the point is to lose them strategically.
