Allies Strategy


  • 2019 2017 '16

    I’ve played quite a number of games of this one as allies against the hard AI on tripleA. I’ve found a couple of things:

    • with a successful SZ37 axis falls without much trouble without a bid.
    • without SZ37 and using the UK fleet to take down the med, allies can win without a bid but it is quite difficult. BTW, I did it without ever getting around to doing strategic bombing raids. I always find better things to spend my money on than trading IPCs roughly one for one with Germany. If the AI took down Transjordan on G1 this wouldn’t be possible until UK2 at least.

    My conclusion is that SZ37 is pretty much required.

    Have you tried against a real, breathing opponent? I tend to find the artificial intelligence is, shall we say, not so terribly intelligent.



  • SZ37 is good move in terms of making a dent in Japans navy and it is a huge loss for them. However its only really worth anything if Japan needs to replace  the units, meaning unless you are going KJF its a completely pointless move. And it is a really, really boring move as it losses the game for the allies if it fails…

    You cant really base your opinion based on Hard AI on triple A as its not really any good. The Hard AI Japan for instance tends to buy 10+ transports and do all types of unfocused ADHD moves all around the pacific without any clear objective, they take mexico, they take alaska etc…

    Yes, a few times. Two opponents so not a huge sample. Without SZ37 I always found the IJN dominant and hard to dislodge.

    I’ve played a couple live opponents in person, too, as well as the AI. Always found that the Axis wins, wins, wins. Let me know if you ever want to take a whirl playing each other on AAA. I’ve never tried AAA with a live opponent before.

    sz37 is good move, in my opinion, although it is not necessary and could be risky.

    Allies need some patience and wait for right moment to strike back…



  • maybe if you are playing a weak german player who doesn’t take out the UK navy on G1

    does AAA work well?  i’d be willing to play as well.

    i’ve played the AI and it never does really well, far too easy to beat.

    Regarding AAA … it works great.  I started to play a lot more because of AAA, and it’s fairly easy to set up.  Let me know if you have any questions on how to make it work.



  • I got it working and played the AI and beat it in a few hours on global 40, will try out 42.2 next

    That’s great - even better you could use AAA to play with live opponent via email! I still remembered how surprise i was the first time I play with live player in this forum.  It’s a lot of challenge 😄 but lot of fun!

    Or play “by forum” nateous as many of us do using the relevant board below.

    It’s what many of us are members for.



  • I’m currently playing two games IRL, but will be glad to start a forum/email game with someone!
