Such buy-routines could surely improve the game play, but even then the AI should not ignore counterattacks on the opponents turn.
A Few Triple-A Questions
First time poster, here. I’ve read a number of your forum topics over the last few months and have found them quite helpful. I’ve been an avid player since the 80s but still have much to learn.
I recently downloaded (ok, actually, my girlfriend did it for me) Triple-A because I find it difficult to get games going here in town, so I’ve been playing the AI for the last couple weeks, mostly 1942 2nd edition. A few questions:
I’ve been losing bombers at about a 60% clip during bombing raids. Even after I switched to “low luck” in the preferences it’s still way higher than the 1/6 probability you should expect. Has anyone else experienced this?
I would like to play online against a real live opponent, rather than the AI. Is there a way to do that without having to do it via email?
Thanks in advance for any answers y’all can provide.
Welcome to the forum, even though you’ve been around for a while it seems!
You can play triple A against a real opponent either by e-mail of “by forum”, so the latter may give you what you need.
Full instructions can be found here:
If you need to find an opponent, this board is for that purpose:
And this is where you post forum turns:
I’ll give this a try in the next couple days.

On these forums we play by forum (you have a link to instructions above).
To play a live opponent in real time, go to “play online” when you open triplea. This takes you to the online TripleA gaming lobby. Here you can start a new game or observe others playing.
That’s exactly what I’m looking for.
