I know Alpha 3 will be coming down the pipe eventually, but I thought I would produce my own. Calling it Bravo 6
Essentially I am trying to discourage the Japs from getting too involved in the European conflict and focusing more on the Pacific. Also, it should be difficult for the Japs to ever completely conquer China. If they do they probably are losing their focus on the Pacific and committing too many resources in China.
I also want the US, to some degree, to stay true to the real war and NOT be able to go KGJ/KJF, which means they cant just drop 100% of their income in any one theatre every single turn.
This should be determined by who can hold the economic edge. Germany should find it difficult to subdue Russia completely by itself. They need to get at least some help from Italy and/or Japan. Germany also needs to get its NO’s and prevent Russia from getting theirs.
