I want to start it AND finish it.
The axis have more options, the allies are more reactive. That’s not to say the axis are not reactive and the allies have no options, just which is their primary role.
Right now, the game is gambit-ish to me. The Iceland Gambit, the Gibraltar Gambit, the SZ 9 Gambit, the Indian Gambit, the Australian Gambit, the American-Pac Strat Gambit. That last is a bit less gambit like since it is seen coming a long ways off, it’s just mostly unstopable atm. Alpha 3 will fix that and we should see the American Pac-Strat be required, partially, with a required investment in Europe by America - either not happening should default a win for the Axis. yay
