  • Very impressive work, is it final, and what were some of the things you addressed with these changes?



  • @Young:

    Very impressive work, is it final, and what were some of the things you addressed with these changes?

    First, I wanted a bit more variety to the setups for Europe and Pacific individually compared to Global, the traditional Global game felt like simply two games in one initially, with a few extra Russian and ANZAC pieces, so I added more to the Allied setup in Europe/Pacific, and took away from some of these nations to compensate for the Global design. You’ll notice the UK and the USA lose units in a Global setup (UK loses more in Europe, while the US does in Pacific).

    The first thing I addressed was giving France more to work with, and to make it possible for Germany to fail if they do not commit airpower. Notice in the two French territories bordering Germany, both contain many units, enough to make it impossible for Germany to take both with land units only, and Germany MUST take Normandy, otherwise the French will hit their units in Holland, and evacuate to the UK, making things more difficult for Barbarossa or Sea Lion. France was given more naval units to reflect it’s status of a naval power better, thus they have at least one of every naval unit in the game, which makes use of the French pieces more. The French are given an Artillery and Tank outside of their mainland territories to fight Germany and Italy, and while it won’t do too much good, it’s the possibility of doing some offensives that adds to France more so than having nothing good to work with to begin with. France will still likely fall, with at best, a 6-7% chance of failure for Germany, and usually it’s 2-3% in most cases. Just to warn you, if France does survive, bye bye Italy. (Personally, I feel France needs another national objective, one that they make money with, otherwise liberating them is not fun)

    For ANZAC, I felt that they needed to be involved more in the Europe campaign, so I give them one extra infantry, and a destroyer. Over in the Pacific, ANZAC did most of the fighting in Malaya, so I give them more stuff there, and I also gave them a battleship and a aircraft carrier to fight Japan with, ANZAC did have a substantial navy to contend with, for the Japanese. A factory was placed in New Zealand given that it is called Australia and >New Zealand< Army Corps., I feel like production should be possible there.

    Italy…I felt, much like you, Italy was weak in most cases when it came to a game. They lose most of their stuff in the Mediterranean, and are kicked out of Africa quickly. So…I give them naval units in the Indian Sea, a tactical bomber, more Infantry in Sicily and Sardinia, and added more heavy units like Tanks to them. Oh, and 4 submarines are quite nice, with 5 cruisers and destroyers, good luck brits.

    The United Kingdom was decision based on historical statistics, well, they had more cruisers than everyone, so give them tons of cruiser, notice they have very little in destroyers, well, the UK did have trouble with German submarines, and giving them an equal number of Destroyers and Cruisers was not happening. And those battleships, they are quite nice, so, they have 4. The UK is a weaker territory to defend, but you could add a fighter and strategic bomber from Canada over, but please, do not try to defend your navy around the British Isles., you will lose so much airpower, that a German player WILL perform Sea Lion, and they have a 96% chance of victory if you do so, thus, it’s better to leave your navy to the German Sea Wolves, and stack London, even then, Germany might still take you. The pacific area was really a simple concept, give them a decent number of naval units, and make taking Hong Kong a bit more costly. I gave the British an Factory in Egypt to compensate for Japan getting one in China.

    China stronk!, but seriously, China I felt was a joke in these games, Japan always has her way with her, there is almost nothing but absolute luck to prevent this, so I up China’s defenses. Some extra Infantry, but most of all, a Tank, to represent Soviet and British lended tanks in China’s war, and an Anti-Aircraft Gun, to add the possibility of China destroying Japan’s air units (not much though), the Airbase there is to slow down Japan more, since they got Tanks.

    The United States of America, has very little in the pacific…Well, they at least got 3 aircraft carriers, the same amount as Japan, so there’s that. The US was really more about compensation, she is capable of boosting her navy, and can do so now more freely, as she begins with lots more land units, so get on making them transports. The United States was given an Tactical Bomber in Philippines to balance out the fact that the US has an AAGun there. An Infantry was placed in Alaska, to prevent Japan from going insane on North America already. Not much to say, the US was ironically the one nation I focused on the least, my only idea in mind was them to focus on naval production more.

    Japan was the process of weaker offensively but larger airforce than Germany, which was sort of historical. Japan was given stuff on all her islands to make taking them a bit harder, and added airpower on most of them, the allies will think twice about attacking…maybe. I wanted Japan to have less Infantry in Coastal China (not counting Manchuria) than China had, but still make it possible for Japan to conquer them, so I gave them a factory in Shanghai (I feel like though, Nanking should of been the VC). Japan was given 3 submarines, an aircraft carrier, a fighter and tac, and a destroyer around the seazone by the Caroline islands, for um…fun. Japan had plenty of cruisers too, not as much as the UK, but still. 4 Transports are better than 3, so have fun island hopping. I gave Japan more Mechs and Tanks, for the fact that Japan did have a decent sized mechanized army in the war. Be careful though in Siberia, you may have the advantage, but the Soviets will make you pay, 6 AAGuns is deadly.

    The Soviet Union, is usually my main focus in these setups, mostly since I feel they are always underpowered, just to compensate for the UK, but I decided against it this time since it is 1940, not 1942. So, to reflect the USSR’s historical army at the time, I give them 5 tanks (6 in Global), 4 artillery (5 in Global), and tons of Infantry, with 2 nice Fighters and Tactical Bombers, and finally, several AAGuns, that represent the partisans and the Russian Winter in their own way.

    Germany is the main focus of this whole thing. I decided to give the Reich a powerful airforce to contend with, not as large as Japan, but much stronger, 8 Fighters, 7 Tactical Bombers, and 2 Strategic Bombers is bad new for all of the allies. I wanted Germany to show the world it’s tank army’s might, 15 is the right number, this is not representing the size of the tank army, but it’s efficiency at the time. Add in 16 artillery pieces, 41 Infantry, 8 AAGuns, and 7 mechanized Infantry, then you got a true rising power to contend, or control. 9 Submarines, 1 Battleship, 2 Transports, Destroyers, and Cruisers makes the German navy something to truly fear. In Africa, Germany has units to attack towards French Africa, with a transport available nearby if you decide to pull out, or beef up this force. Germany has one thing it needs to take care of first, France, and it must take both French territories it borders, or it will suffer. In round 2, Germany could try for Sea Lion, or build up for Barbarossa for round 3. Regardless, the prime target is Moscow, and you must quickly defeat the Soviet Union, or be annihilated by the allies, as Germany was dealing with historically. You are given an airbase and seabase in Germany, and an airbase in Norway to allow your airforce to strike defensively or offensively, do not waste the air units, or you won’t be able to take London or Moscow, ever.

    I’m later designing a new 1942 setup, but I want to first get feedback on this.

    I will as soon as I get things unpacked at my place. I recently moved, and forgot to label what is what. I have a bad habit of forgetting to do things sometimes.

    I apologize to anyone who might be waiting, if I could say anything else, you guys don’t have to even consider doing this yet, but I will post the images in a about a week. Just give me some time, I kind of got a hectic work schedule that slows things down.



  • I decided to use some of my regular 1914 pieces and edit them.

    Left to right: Fighter, Tactical Bomber, Strategic Bomber, Mechanized Infantry, Destroyer, Aircraft Carrier

    The carrier itself is unfinished, but the idea is to smooth out most of the bottom, I simply don’t have time to do this, and I’m not the most careful person.



  • Updated my 1942 setup chart a bit, also skimmed text down on it to make setup adjustments easier.

    EDIT (Bonus):

    French National Objectives

    Remove the Liberation Objective regarding the France territory.

    National Integration: +6 IPCs to France if they control all of their original territory.
    Revitalized Morale and Prestige: +1 IPCs each, per originally German and Italian territory.

    Also…

    Liberation: If a capital is liberated, for the first time only, place up to 10 IPCs worth of units for the Allies, and 20 for the Axis, on the capital territory of the original controller.



  • New Version:

    Less units and less clutter, stronger Germany, China, ANZAC, and United States. USSR nerfed a bit, along with Japan and Italy.

  • I’m rollin’! 1940 VARIATIONS ARE MY FAVORITE! I CANNOT wait.

    P.S. if you disappoint me you have done a terrible job. When it comes to 1940 variations for setup I take everything.

    P.S. if you disappoint me you have done a terrible job. When it comes to 1940 variations for setup I take everything.

    Well I have played with the setups, but not exactly an expert player, so don’t be surprised about balance issues.

    The only one I had any opportunity of playing with other players was the last one I posted, that one is the only one I’m sure is nearly perfectly balanced



  • I’m gonna sticky this thread for further observation and testing from members… it’s nice to have more setup options (if it’s good).



  • @Young:

    I’m gonna sticky this thread for further observation and testing from members… it’s nice to have more setup options (if it’s good).

    Well the only setup I’m sure of is good is the latest 1942 setup, the 1940 ones I have yet to get any real players to test out (I’m not the best A&A player, so sometimes I miss stuff), I had posted a Triple A version of the 1940 Global setup I made, but it’s never got any attention. I do intend to redo it, and make it more interesting (New turn sequence, a Triple A version included).

    When the new setup is ready, I’ll delete all but my 1942 setups. I will put this on the original post, under spoilers to prevent too much text from flooding the screen.



  • Well, it’s a sticky thread now so it should get a little attention… make your changes but keep the first couple of posts clean as it’s the first thing members will see. let us know when they’re updated to your satisfaction so we can start taking them seriously. I really like the work and thought put into your setups and that’s why I stuck it… but you should finalize them as soon as possible.

    I’m going to post it tomorrow.



  • Some questions: I copied over your 1940 before you deleted it. Should I bother playing it? 2 You have 3 1942 setups. I am assuming the one that replaced the 1940 is the same as the last one. Should I not bother playing the 1942 setup with a lot of pieces? (2nd one) last question: can I play your 1942 without those special French rules?

    Only the latest 1942 setup has been tested, and yes, the French rules are only optional. The 1940 setup is no longer supported.

    The new 1940 game however will include new rules that have to be followed through for the setup it comes with (national objectives, three new units, and a new turn order), this one will take me some time, tomorrow was not a good estimate of time given I was called in for a series of days to work. Probably 2-3 weeks on that.



  • I noticed for the latest 1942 you don’t specify different setups for standalone Europe or Pacific. Is this true? Btw which 1942 should I Play?

    The latest one is good (older ones were Allied favored), I do plan for separate setups soon.

    EDIT: Posted them. They are on the original post.



  • Excellent game!  Me and my bros will he playing it a little until Friday. Very nice (particularly the historical Eastern Front) but two things bother me. Russia holds Persia and Iraq. Why? The UK really had them and it is a nice place for UK factory. I understand that it does give Russia a nice boost.
    France. I am all for them but three riggers in England vs one UK fighter?  Really?
    Other than that great game. I feel it is balanced. Thanks a lot! Keep up the good workroom!

    The Persian and Iraq territories under Soviet control was to represent allied support to the USSR, also Persia is more within the Soviet sphere of influence than the British one. Iraq easily could of gone either way, look at how the cold war turned out.

    The French fighters represent the exiled allied forces in the UK that heavily aided in Britain’s defense during 1940. Particularly the Polish and French pilots (who performed better on average than their British counterparts, not to take away credit from the British), also, the British have technically 6 air units on or around the British isles, so it’s not really a big deal for the numbers sake.

    EDIT: The airbases in Gilbert Islands and Solomon are not supposed to be there, I also forgot to put the Japanese control marker in the setup, apologies to you. I also forgot Japan control Aleutian Islands. I made the changes to the chart, again sorry. (The errors were due to myself, when copying over the old setup [which was to save time] and making the necessary changes, that I forgot to remove some stuff, this is also why sometimes you see “1 cruisers” or “2 tank” rather than the grammatically correct terms, again I fixed these just now)

    I hope you will enjoy the upcoming 1940 setup and rules.



  • Ok thanks! As for the misstakes it is no problem as I am playing Europe only. Can’t wait for 1940!

    I RECCOMMEND THIS TO EVERYONE OUT THERE! TRY IT YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!



  • Very well thought out, I’ll look at it closer on the weekend.



  • Any more updates on the 1940 setup?

    It’s the second post. I honestly don’t know, until I have the chance to play it and the rules that go with it with someone, to find out if it’s imbalanced or not, so I can make the necessary changes.
