I consider it very bad form to not surrender if defeat is inevitable. Why bother wasting several hours of somebody else’s life when there is no hope of recovering? The Axis certainly can drag things out for a very long time if they want to turtle down in their capitols. If the opponent really wants to do that, I will find a new opponent.
Once it gets to that stage i normaly surrender, but i normaly tend to hang in there a bit longer then most players as i dont give up if there is a 55% of losing but only when it is nearly certain.
Its still a game of dice, if it is inevitable sure you cant stop it but if it will take the axis still 3 rounds to win so much can happen that it isnt a lost cause yet. Moscow battle might go unfavorable and they cant take cairo, or some 75% combat goes wrong. Even winning with heavy losses drains resources.
Great videos YG, I own 1940 europe 2nd edition and the factories are really annoying to pick up. But since you pointed out that you can use monopoly cottages and hotels as factories I am starting to use them and its much easier to use and I also use monopoly money its much easier to use then paper and pencil. Again great videos.
BTW when is your japan run through coming out?
Hey Frederick II, Thanks for your comments, glad to help… part 4 of the runthrough series (japan) should be posted on the weekend or early next week.
Hitler lost five weeks by having to bail Mussolini out in Greece. Otherwise the Germans would have been to Moscow before bad weather. But there is no guarantee that the Russians would have surrendered even if they lost Moscow. Plans were underway to move the capital further East.
