Alpha 4 is due next month


  • Official Q&A

    What Larry said was that he’s thinking about changing the rule.  As of right now, Mongolia joins the Allies if Japan attacks Amur from Manchuria and/or Korea, whether or not Japan and the USSR are already at war.

    Ah.  Good to know.  So essentially, Russia always wins the neutral agreement.  Japan can never invade Amur from Manchuria/Korea without giving Mongolia to Russia.

    Removing the NO from England was probably an unnecessary factor in having people consider Russia before England.

    It was necessary because he removed the British NO for no German Subs in the Atlantic.

    I am confused…how is it necessary to take the NO out of England because the No Submarine NO was moved to Paris?



  • I think they are trying to say that since England doesn’t get an NO for no German subs on the board it doesn’t give Germany the need to build subs and in general building units towards England

    That makes partial sense.  I still think you need submarines for Germany, but a lot less.  Before you needed 4 in SZ 109, 2 in SZ 106, 2 in SZ 82.  Now you need 2 in SZ 109, 1 in SZ 106 and 1 in SZ 82 to get almost the same results as before.

    What the change does, however, is weaken England to the tune of 5 IPC a round.  There’s not a bat’s chance in hades that England and America are putting units in Paris until the game is already over (but the axis won’t concede).  Essentially, what Larry did, was to remove 10 IPC a round from the Allies give the Axis a significant boost in buying power in relation to the what the Allies used to get.

    It also means that the Allies dont ahve to go beserk trying to kill every submarine on the board too.
