No, you can’t do that.
If your side (but not necessarily your power) controlled a canal or narrow strait at the start of your turn, you may move
sea units through it (you can’t use it in the same turn that you capture it).
A bit houseruley, but you could simply have the UK be a single economy but still two capitals, that way Japan could destroy Calcutta, then after the UK collects again, Germany finishes them off in London. You also need to make Moscow less attractive (G40 was created with the intention of Sea Lion and a more successful Burma campaign to be possible), so additional national objectives are needed for the USSR, with a combination of a means to make China more difficult for Japan, to prevent a Moscow-Rush or Dark Skies Strategy from always taking place.
Another thing is, the allies need simple and also possible to obtain victory conditions, so perhaps this:
Europe Victory: The Allies control 1 original European Axis Victory City; Calcutta and Sydney still under Allies Control
Pacific Victory: Japan controls no originally Pacific Allies Victory Cities; Moscow and London still under Allies Control
Oh that is SOOO sweet! Wish I had known that previously. I had not attacked a French Destroyer for fear of losing the non-Aggression NO for letting FIC be free (figured it was all or nothing.) Ah well, my fault for not checking first!
You should give A2 a try and then A3 and then make a personal choice as to which you prefer, which version is more balanced for your playstyle.
For instance if you like to take risks than A3 is better because it rewards sloppy play more than A2(unstoppable sealion/IndiaCrush)
Yeah, I think it might be the league that you’re hearing about
Here are the current rankings, so you can take a look -
The initial post in this thread has to be bogus. I play as Japan almost exclusively and what he’s saying he did - well - I’m extremely skeptical. Perhaps the noobs he played against set up wrong, or the group misapplied certain rules, because looking at the initial Global setup, I just dont see how what he’s saying he did is actually possible.
