given that a ladder is far away, I am looking to organize a tournament. geographically assigned brackets, with quarter finals, semi finals, and finals, all depending on number of participants. 16 player max. all games to be played on triplea.
this will be a single game elimination event with bids for allies. dice, tech, and NOs.
first to bid will be randomly selected by me.
email: rockrobinoff at gmail.com to secure your spot. tournament will begin on Dec. 13 or whenever all slots are full - whichever is sooner.
It’s even worse: allies fall as a card castle after China fall J1: India, Australia and then or Soviet Union (KJF) or Alaska plus Canada and maybe Africa and finally Soviet Union anyway (KGF). As in Revised, ignore a theater and you lose the war. Opposite to Revised, you cannot choose as allies in 1941, it’s Japan who chooses ignore China or not, and if Japan is wise, it will not ignore China J1
Your point is valid: even if the game were balanced (and it’s not), it has no fun the way China is designed, even for Japan. When I play face to face, Japan is my last option, because it’s the more boring: just stomp all at your reach 😐 I could even pick Italy (but not China) before than Japan
