Someone needs to kick our Axis


  • 2016

    We’re looking for very good Allied player(s).
    We’ll give you 20 IPC’s

    My friend and I have concluded that there is an Axis strategy that cannot be stopped. (assuming we don’t make some stupid error) 
    Not even when we give the Allies 20+ points.

    Looking for opponents not a discussion.
    Using suggestions from the likes of ItIsILeclerc, Axis-dominion, Gargntua, Arthur Bomber Harris, Adam514, DizzKneeLand, Gamerman01, and too many others to mention, we’ve tried to develop a counter for the allies, but with no success.
    Of course, the problem may be in our marshaling of the allied forces.  We invite you to school us.

    Our proposal:
      We play the Axis
      20 IPC to allies
      TripleA Lobby – kudos to the sourceforge team.  Many fun hours spent there.
      Marathon session – we’re on vacation (spring training baseball) and we want to play until there is a clear resolution.
      LOW LUCK, No Tech
      Skype?  It makes it easier and more fun.

    We’ve become prideful and arrogant.  Someone needs to teach us a lesson.
    Seriously, show us what we are missing.

    email mail klousia@yahoo.com 
    Send a time and date.  Will respond asap.
    On vacation until April 1 2016.

    Righto.

    I’m in Sydney, AU. Timezone UTC+11, so I’ll want to get some sleep in 8 hours or so. Is that agreeable? I’ve also got some forms to sign so might take me half an hour or so.

    Bid: 1 Soviet art in Novgorod
    1 UK ftr in India
    1 UK tank in Burma


  • 2016

    OK. We’ll look for you in the TripleA lobby. signed in as klou and gamergray.
    Bot4


  • 2016

    Waited an hour and still want to play, but we are on the east coast of US; late here 1:30am.

    Send us an email or post a time here.  We’ll try to get a mutual time despite the time difference.


  • 2019 2017 2016

    Sorry about that - had to go out. Perhaps 7am my time? If you’re UTC-5 that would be 3pm for you?


  • 2016 2015 '10

    Hi Gamer.

    If it’s a low luck game, alot us believe 20 is not enough.  So some of us (agreeing with you about the Axis advantage) might not even agree to play at that bid.

    Nonetheless, I would take up the challenge anyway but I’m out of town.



  • if it’s low luck I want a 50 IPC bid

    You’re not the first to discover that on low luck, Germany can defeat Russia by G5 100% of the time.

    Low luck eliminates all the uncertainty from the game and isn’t very much fun IMO. It’s more of an academic exercise than a gaming experience.


  • 2017

    The bidding system should be the allies pick 20 IPCs to remove from the Axis set-up.



  • low luck is not my game.

    edit: changed opinion to more reasonable.


  • 2019 2017 2016

    I’ll be up for a rematch at the same bid this weekend (your Fri/Sat) if you’re interested?


  • 2016

    Sounds good, we’ll look for you at the same time in the tripleA lobby.

    We’ll give you more if you want (25+).


  • 2019 2017 2016

    You’re on. So Friday 3pm UTC-5 time? (7am here)

    I’ll take 25.

    Soviet: 8
    British: 14
    ANZAC: 3

    You might want to specify where you want what unit in order to prevent trouble when you start.
    Not everybody has the same rules about bidding.


  • 2019 2017 2016

    @Ichabod:

    The bidding system should be the allies pick 20 IPCs to remove from the Axis set-up.

    If that was the system I’d remove 5 artillery. The 5 bordering France.

    Bye bye German Mech Inf. Or they need to use planes and risk them against the AAA.

    @SubmersedElk:

    You’re not the first to discover that on low luck, Germany can defeat Russia by G5 100% of the time.

    FWIW, in one game I hung on the whole game as USSR with only 1 art bought by USSR in the bid. The main spearhead couldn’t enter the territories bordering Moscow IIRC. Was an I2 DOW. You’re probably going to say that Germany should DOW G2.

    @gamergray:

    Sounds good, we’ll look for you at the same time in the tripleA lobby.

    We’ll give you more if you want (25+).

    Next game, I want this bid:
    4 USSR
    10 British
    9 UK_Pac

    That’s only 23. Two to somebodies bank then,  😄

    We have baseball games the next two days (Monday and Tuesday) so we would have to start a little later; after the baseball game is over (an hour or two later than our previous starts).

    Klou is busy Wednesday and Thursday, but I could play 1v1 on those days.  I’d be willing to be the allies at 25 if you want to switch.

    Let us know what works for you.


  • 2019 2017 2016

    Would you be happy to start later? Perhaps play over more than one day, particularly if you have plans for the next day.

    I’d be up for it if you are.


  • 2016

    Sounds good.  Probably sometime between 4 and 5 pm
    We’ll look for you in the lobby.


  • 2019 2017 2016

    Is Chinese artillery a valid bid option?


  • 2016

    Since Yunnan is alive I would say yes, but I’m not sure what the accepted "house rule " is for that.
    People have done it to me before.

    It is OK by us.


  • 2019 2017 2016

    If you’re still up I’ll give it a go as Axis tomorrow but I’m not particularly confident at that bid level.


  • 2017 2016

    So has anyone kicked their Axis yet?  😄


  • 2019 2017 2016

    @Wolfshanze:

    So has anyone kicked their Axis yet?  😄

    Not I, although I thought I was winning once but then accidentally separated the US fleet and lost in the Pacific.

    I’ll try something a bit different next time. I think it’s winnable at a sub-20 bid.

    The Finnish attack can be reinforced with British fighters which can then stage into Moscow. USSR3 you can probably attack Manchuria and hold it. The Mongolian rule is overrated. Seems to make a big difference to advance the 2AAA from Leningrad to Karelia. If you do that, they can’t get back to Moscow in time and those 2AAA are really helpful in a big battle. The answer may be to use your two fighters and a 1 art bid to defend the stack on Karelia or Vyborg, depending on the positioning of the German TT.

    Do you really need to sacrifice the British CV in the Med? I submit that you don’t: on Low Luck you can fly in a fighter from London and know for sure that you don’t need to move the CV in for it to land because you can take it as a hit. Perhaps that invites a scramble which would probably leave you with 1ftr & 1SB, assuming a sub bid is thrown in. But that also means their air force has been decimated and you can sit off Malta with a loaded CV and a cruiser. The most the Italians could throw at that would be 1SB, 1ftr, 1DD, 1Sub, 1Cruiser which is a mutual annihilation attack, slightly favouring the Italians. They could leave it for the Germans but then their entire Luftwaffe is out of position.

    Why wouldn’t you bid an artillery in Kweichow? If the two Chinese inf in Hunnan hit the Japanese troops, you might have the odds to take back the territory China1 unless its strengthened. Indeed, you could thin down the Hunnan attack in this instance to be strengthen the Yunnan attack or Szechwan J2. Even if you miss, it’s still an even fight. Trading inf/art for inf/art is a good trade for China. The fighter can land in Shensi and be backed by some inf if it wants to avoid the mortal threat of landing in Szechwan. It’s out of range of all but the SBs. You can attack Yunnan with 6 inf and know for certain that you can retreat before taking the territory. Of course, that means forgoing the Burma Rd China1.

    We have suffered our first defeat.

    Pete’s strategy was well planned and we made mistakes on both sides of the board.
    And Pete capitalized very effectively.  VERY effectively.

    The rubber match starts tomorrow.


  • 2019 2017 2016

    Wouldn’t mind a rematch tomorrow about the same time. ie. Easter Monday, in the afternoon in the USA, given the time difference.


  • 2016

    Simon, we have stuff to do today (Monday) in the afternoon and into the early evening.
    And we are in the midst of a match with Pete.

    Tuesday is a baseball game.

    Wednesday looks good for a rematch.  Afternoon same start time as before.
