Ozteas 1941 is well reviewed. If you’re comfortable with some players being at peace at the start, that is also worth a look. Starts like round 3 of 1940.
Although if you prefer the simplicity of everyone fighting right away, go to g42!
I am about to start playing with germany for the first time and know of operation sealion. My question is this, is there one best sequence for a successfull operation sealion or can you vary it up in your experience. I would be interested in reading several buy options.
The only thing I think you /must/ do is buy a CV on G1. This will make sure your fleet survives and can be quite useful throughout the game.
This might be a dumb question but what is a cv?
They have some funny acronyms here, the CV is an Aircraft Carrier.
Thats what the actual acronym is.
AC: Aircraft Carrier
CA: Cruiser (Heavy)
CL: Cruiser (Light)
I think these are it anyway
Another option, besides the CV buy, is to invest in bombers.
Do a strat. bomb on London G1 (with 2 bombers), and do another one with 2 + 2 on G2 (with a G1 buy of 2 bombers and whatever else your heart desires for 6 IPCs).
In my opinion, it’s the better option because once you’re through taking London, extra bombers are far more useful against the USSR than a carrier.
