another great game……one of my iraq buddies came to pittsburgh over the summer and we got a few games in. I also love playing as Germany. Sometimes i alternate between artillery rd. 1. Armor rd 2. and just push for Moscow…10 arty…8 armor…10 arty …8 armor. My stategy is to take russian territories each turn and place my 12ipc bonus at the brginning of the game down towards egypt(3 arty)
I hope not on Libya as you have to have units on the territory.
My 12 ipcs as Germany goes to a Transport and 1 art unit. The transport allows me to contest leningrad or look like I am going to attempt Sealion. Either way it is a win-win situation for me.
As Germany I have never lost however have come close. My first turn is always every single plane goes and attacks British fleets, then subs do there attacks on the u.s. And british fleets, except for Canada. As the Canadian fleet stretches my fleet out a bit too much.
Then I hammer Russia with all armour buys however I do sometimes buy subs to keep the Western Allies at bay.
