Yes, the transports could have retreated one sea zone space and go back to SZ 112. Units remain loaded in the sea. At this point, you’d have to hope that you built more ships and or 3 fighters and or tac. bombers would be on the airbase at w. Germany and enough to save your troops.
Note, if during the sea battle, your ships could soak up 3 hits (2 for battleships + 1 for cruiser), and the defender rolled 5 hits. Then 2 hits would have had to apply to transports which would bring their cargo to the bottom of the channel. The rest of the transports could then retreat.
How do we check on your games? Where are they?
On these forums in the play games section.
Round 4 with Corriganbp, I have England and India and a large show of force down in the DEI for Japan. He’s got infantry in China, but that does not bother me. They are not getting reinfroced, they cannot take a VC and I am already close to a VC win for Japan. Figure another 3 rounds and it’s lights out for the Allies. (He evacuated the Pacific in hopes of being able to liberate London.)
What if they bypass your Armada by sailing North around Scotland and hit London from from Sz 109. What do you have in London at this point…. 2 Brits and a Frenchman.
So essentially, just two combat units Haha, sorry, but I just couldn’t resist taking advantage of such an obvious opportunity to take a stab at the French
Since the U.S. does not start with one of the objectives: (5 of the 7 islands one) They are likely to collect 77….then factor in that when they do take one of the islands to get the 5, they typically have lost the Philippines objective, so they will be at 75-77 (if they have Brazil). I haven’t seen them reach 82 in 4 games of Alpha 2.
Can fighters from Scotland reach Gib? it looks to be 5 spaces away.
Calvin it’s actually 3-4 spaces away! I haden’t even considered adding the Scot fig to al Taranto battlbe… yikes… ait may not be as favorable for Italy as I think… need to play this out again tonight.
When is this alpha nonsense going to be finalized. It’s making my head spin. Will this be the official setup for all 3 games ?
It will be done when it’s done. It will either be the official setup or an alternate setup, for all three games.
