    so when I went into edit mode, I noticed tripleA had my transport troop load wrong in 92. as I confirmed in a previous post, it should have been 3 US transports carrying the UK units. so edited to correct it, should be good now.


  • 2019 2018 2016 2015

    also note my Anzac NB in Africa. it’s not a common placement. I don’t wanna be too sneaky 🙂



  • I fully expected it.



  • actually i expected somaliland. I think its the more aesthetically appealing location.

    Well, I figured just in case in the future if Japan were to threaten Africa, at least Ethiopia is more defensible

    It definitely is, just seemed like the tip would be the most realistic place. But certainly not the best placement for this game.

    Also, I wondered how things would go in Rostov. Hope that doesn’t trigger bad memories 🙂 I hate those strafes though. Struggled with how many units to take trying to decide if the 1-3% chance of taking the territory was worth the expected gain of 3-6 ipcs. I’ll take +12 though. Assumed from past experience you would keep the AA but feel free to change if you want an inf back.

    I agree the strafes can be fun and stressful at the same time. Losing 12 is still better than allowing your units to conquer the oil fields and cause a swing of 22! Also, there’s always the chance your strafe could be too successful!



  • exactly. Not sure I would lose immediately if I accidentally took it but it would be far from ideal.

    Thats the thing about it. I think more than any games in recent memory, they are always so tied together. You do a great job balancing the theaters. You do a really nice job positioning your units to threaten multiple targets, increasing their effectiveness. Which I feel is what the allies have to do to delay the axis and then get into a position where they can start to attack.
