Not really. Hope Autumn 2nd Ed will point the right way.
As Russia and the 18 Eastern Inf are not on the map makes it easier for Japan as they can empty Manchuria and Korea and send them against the Chinese.
We need a Manchuria garrison ruling(eg: keep 6-8 units in Manc).
Alpha 3 helps as it reduces Japan’ s air power.
US’s starting income is weak(17), perhaps that will be enhanced to include Central US. War income adequate, not brilliant. Play the 5 NO for owning Philippines when at war of course and no Tech.
just for the record the people i was playing against said infantry could not shoot planes. they also said artillery could not fire without infantry to fire them. so 1 inf to each gun, if gun is hit so is inf… then they tried to attack my artillery and killed both with the inf since they said they could, then they all attacked my tank. i said wait i get to fire my tank first since it has not fired yet. they said the first part of the attack was tanks vs artillery, now second part is tanks vs tank…all in the same country by the way…then when i said they could not shoot twice until after all my units fired they said i was a cheater
Your partners seem to be extremely unfamiliar with the rules. That does not sound anything like how combat should actually be resolved in A&A.
