Is killing Sea Zone 110 an absolute must?

    @Charles:

    On a more serious note, are you not bringing in submarines to attack 110 in your 111 strafe scenario?

    What colt said.



  • Fighters or no fighters, my question still remains.  Are you bringing in a submarine or three to take hits from the cruiser and battleship?

    Yes, two.



  • I agree with the above statement that the importance of preserving the Luftwaffe outweighs the need to take out the BB in SZ110, in addition to any fighters scrambled. Additionally, by foregoing SZ110, as Germany you can also preserve your BB on G1 for use in later rounds or in the hopes of consolidating your fleet with the Italians in the Med.



  • My concern about leaving a UK fleet of any kind is making it easier for them to:

    1. build in ME or Africa immediately because they don’t have to spend for defense in London
    2. they can more easily put together a landing fleet to take Norway, or with U.S. help, enter the Baltic, or simply force me to keep a strong defense force on W. Germany and Paris.


  • And when the US does come knocking it means that they can spend almost fully on trannys and men rather than carriers and destroyers to protect them, which means more of them will come or the Japanese player will take even more heat.

    I had many games where I skipped 110, I had also games where I skipped 111.

    The difference to not attacking both, 110 and 111 is reduced variance.



  • Well, it depends on the level of the allied players.  I can usually tell by my opponents uk1/us1 moves and buys whether I have a 100% to perhaps little over 50% chance to win the game, depending on bid.  A lot of players give the allies away at too high a bid, and take the allies at too low a bid.  All of this is much more important than if Germany decides to attack only one of the two szs.  :evil:
