WHAT A BUNCH OF BS!!!
I thought Alpha 3 was going to make America involved in the European front more, and weaken russia. But now the Axis are SCREWED! AA guns are 3 TIMES AS POWERFUL NOW. The axis airforce is almost completly usless now, and the Russians are STILL AS POWERFUL. Plus, the RUSSIANS should be the ones who are discouraged from attacking Japan, not the other way around!
I am going to play this, but I am seriously doubting whether or not this wil be ballanced at all.
AA Guns are 5 times as important and a third as powerful, I think you meant to say. You cannot fire 3 shots at each attacking plane, you can fire three shots if there are 3 or more planes attacking.
The Russian front will still be breached, but not from Manchuria or Korea. Good.
Germany is not forced to attack Russia. It may or may not prove to be the best option. Honestly, with 3 crd submarines, you might go after Russia and castrate England with submarines instead, it’s far cheaper!
America is down 2 NOs if they ignore the Atlantic, 3 if Germany snipes W. Indies as well. It’s a helluva lot better than I expected from Larry, given how powerful he always makes America in these games.
