Massive G1 Barbarossa



  • @Jeremus:

    If you are well defended in europe, I don’t think usa with a major in norway is a game ender. By the time they set up a fleet in the baltic sea and ready to land, your infantry stack should be quite large. In my case, the americans will be able to start landing from norway at turn 8 probably if they put everything there, but if they do so japan will become unstoppable and make more money than usa. Also on turn 8, my japan will conquer south africa or even better egypt if my opponent makes the mistake of liberating egypt from italians. So the axis will also have a superpower in the europe side of the board.

    Germany will hold in my case.

    Liberating Egypt is not a mistake. Losing it afterwards is.

    USA doesn’t need to spend all on Norway, on the contrary. The threat of landings alone is already a good thing. They can even go over land with relatively cheap units, over Finland into Russia to help them out.

    Keeping London and Egypt (or taking it back) is of course of major importance for the Allies, and unless London has fallen, UK should be ashamed if it loses S.Africa to Japan!



  • In my case UK liberating egypt would be a blessing from the gods because there is no way japan cant retake it afterward on turn 8. Japan will land 10 units on turn 8 anywhere on the east coast of africa. If egypt is in uk’s hands, both south africa and egypt will be japanese.

    I acknowledge the threat of america landing anywhere is big, but to achieve that they will need to build a fleet in the baltic sea strong enough to repell both the luftwaffe and the 6 japanese planes wich will be in europe on turn 7. This will take time and money. They can’t enter their already built fleet since they can’t hold denmark. The only thing that scares me is if they decide to go in ussr with a lot of tank/mech. This will force me to put a lot of forces in leningrad, but then again the japanese planes can be used for the purpose of keeping leningrad.

    I personnaly feel that G1 barbarossa is the way to go in OOB (I won’t play any newer version since my friends wont acknowledge they exist until it’s on the official wizard of the coast website)

    By the sound of it, Axis have indeed won the game to an extent that a Norway IC won’t change much anymore (Russia and India fallen and not much US presence in the Pacific?)

    Sending land units from Norway is what i would do as well (long term thinking), while moving the Atlantic fleet South to the Med to help out the UK and keep Italy small (if UK can grab Denmark the US fleet could enter the Baltic Sea, but… that might become their grave as well.
    Also keep in mind that the USA fleet might follow the Nordic sea route and land somewhere from SZ127
