Uk pac 2 attack


  • 2017 '16 '15

    didn’t find much on my limited research  here

    seems like a lot of people uk pac attack 2

    is it for the money or because your blockers don’t work?



  • Why attack as the UK? It takes the US out for too long…



  • It depends on the japanese moves.

    If Japan is going for China or otherwise out of position you can get some extra money from the NOs for UK pac and ANZAC.

    In one of my last games japan was too deep into china and out of position to be a real threat for UK pac. Japan had to move into position, UK and ANZAC got the money for their NOs for two rounds.



  • Well a smart Japanese player would never put the Allies in a position where a. Their stacks are vulnerable or b. They can’t block NO’s.



  • I’ve had games where U.K India essentially tries to open the Burma Road, if the situation is favorable (, ie bad opening turns for Japan). Helps that it really can be a good sideshow with combined mechanized infantry and tank blitzing.



  • I always attack Japan in China on UK Pac 2. This reopens the burma route (as the Japanese have way too limited ground forces) and keeps china in play. China is really more important then most of the players think. I find them very strong, especially against those scattered Japanese forces. The only problem is their airforce but every japanese unit you can take out on the mainland, is a huge win.

    Crazy thing about the Japanese air force and Chinese units is this, the latter just needs to keep those precious stacks out of their range. Pull back, retreat. Advance when the time is right. A smart Chinese players does this, and makes the Japanese player really invest their time in the Chinese hinterland, splitting their options.

    Best strategy for the Chinese is to play exactly like the Russians:  Turtle up and keep one step away from the units trying to take them out.  Each round you’ll be able to add 2-3 Inf to your big starting stack.  Once Japan attacks the UK or Anzac, you’re free to start marching towards either A:  Burma Road to reclaim it or B: The valuable territories the Japanese start with in the north.

    Both cases make Japan invest more deeply into taking China than it wants to, while buying time until India can help you retake the Burma Road.  Don’t play foolish with your big starting stack, protect it until the Japanese are too thin or they’ve invested too much in China (which is an IPC sink if Japan doesn’t get it early).
