Grasshopper's 8d System - House Rule for China 1940 Global

• Because the Infantry attack and defense values are lower on the 8 sided system compared to the 6 Sided values in oob, China will require a house rule to help them compete against Japan. The suggestion is that China may purchase artillery units weather they control the Burma road or not… I like it, what are your thoughts?

• Ya I like it too.
2 inf = A2 A25.0% total
1 inf+1 art = A4 A50% total makes up the drop for sure.
Cost ya 7 instead 6 icps.

Do you know how many Art are bought in a game on average for China ?

I hope it will be at least Arty A3 D2, so chinese Inf will get A2+A3 for 5/8 or 62.5% which is nearer the OOB 4/6 (66.7%) combined arms.

This little case also shows that China might be better with a strong Arty A3 D3 because defense 5/8 (62.5%) will be nearer OOB 66.7% for Art+Inf.
Otherwise, 50% 4/8 combined defense is a whole D6 pip below OOB 66.7%

China need something because japanese Fighter and TcB keeps their usual OOB 50% attack per unit.

My other thought was Art only built with open Burma Road and Art A2D3 and China Inf cost 2.

• Interesting idea about Chinese Inf at cost 2.
Mostly the case with AA50.

I put the Deluxe Edition Regular Infantry at a cost of 2… this China rule is for oob conversion from 6d to 8d without cost changes.
