Thanks and good gaming!
I believe I have found an effective counter to the allied destroyer strategy.
Need a new opponent to test it on though. Bean’s in school! hehe.
it is definitely a beatable strategy
Let me redefine my statement, I have found an EFFECTIVE counter to the allied destroyer strategy. I know there are ways to stop it by shooting yourself in the foot with the axis. But I think I have a way to do it without selecting National Advantages specifically to beat it and not racing for technologies specifically to beat it (though they make it easier.)
In other words, a very slight modification from the game as normally played.
Small change to the rules.
I did my playtesting on TripleA where Afghanistan is adjacent to Chinghai. I had the opportunity to play a live ftf game last night and noticed that on the real board the Himalayas lie between Afghanistan and Chinghai. Therefore…Afghanistan is no longer a selectable neutral by China…they may take Mongolia only.
I am looking for contact with Cousin Joe and Axis Roll. I am looking for the XML used to create the AARe module for MapView. Laso I want to let you guys know that AARe has been getting played by a small group of players for quite a long time
I never understood, how researching a technology would instantly upgrade your units for 0 cost. While doctrines is a change in tactical thinking, using units differently. You don’t actually have to build anything or upgrade anything, but the techniques in battle change and represent a learning experience.
In real life:
Germany focus on armored manuver warfare, to encircle their enemies.
France focused on static defenses.
US focused heavily on heavy bombers and daylight raids.
While Brittain focused on night bombers.
Russia focused on heavy preliminary artillery bombardment, for battles.
while the US had artillery available quickly to lower lever units. (“RADIO”)
Japan developed the expertise and techniques for night battles.
I think these things add a little bit to flavor in the game.
What you’re describing sounds like the National Advantages available in A&A Revised. These were nation specific advantages that reflected certain tactics, special units, or strategies used by the different A&A nations.
It’s a shame they took these out of AA50 because you are absolutely correct, when balanced appropriately, they can add tremendous flavor to a game (check out AAR: Enhanced which uses a much more balanced set of national advantages compared to AAR OOTB)
