Ok guys, hi, I am new here, (not from the U.S.) but have played 2004 and 2009 version earlier. I like 2012 version the most.
This is basically a thread for alternative opening strategies (1st and 2nd turn).
I haven’t been looking much for different strategies here, but here is some brainstorming; feel free to add and comment.
Russia1 - what to buy? 24 IPC
- 8 INF
- 4 INF+2 ARM
- 4 INF+3 ART
Germany1 - what to buy? 41 IPC
Many possibilities here, most of it going towards ground units I believe.
- 11 INF+2 ART
- 9 INF+2 ARM+1 ART
- 9 INF+1 ART+1 FTR
UK1 - what to buy? 30 IPC
Also, many possibilities here, depends on the strategy. I would build 3 units in India, and save the rest for the fleet on the UK, total of 51 or 52 for UK2 if I take New Guinea. Or all in on India, and nothing outside UK.
- 3 INF on India + save 21 IPC
- 3 FTR on India + get 1 INF and 1 ART from Egypt back to India.
This is some thoughts,. will try to fill in more,.
