    I am talking with using either Russia Restricted or a bid.

    And Germany can easily get an addition 8 (+ 2 and 1 tank already there) infantry to africa. All you need to do is buy 1 transport your first turn and move any surviving subs (usually just the formly bay of biscay sub) to take hits. funneling 4 infantry per turn to africa.

    Well I might be interested in playing it out sometime with Russia restricted if you were interested.



  • I guess not.



  • I just played a game on the zone again. I played all allies and took germany down in only 4 turns =P. He was focusing on taking my IC in SA so his european defence was a bit weak. Soo on turn 3 i invaded France with 4 infantry, 1 tank, 1 fighter and a bomber with US and destroyed 2 INF, 2 tanks and 2 fighters there. I had no units left to take the territory but i saved my fighter and bomber. Then on Russia’s turn (turn 4) i invaded eastern europe and took down all his armor units and a fighter as well. Which left him with 3 INF in germany and 4 in Italy. Sooo he resigned 😄

    The Japanese player was taking south asia in the meantime but couldnt hurt me as well. He bought an industrial on turn 1 😉



  • If Germany weakens European defense too much to concentrate on Africa too long -they’ll lose. Japan needed to hit Russia as well as South-Asia, the IC didn’t necessarily doom them. Sounds like you played them right.



  • well it did for a part, it slowed his advance and building it in indo-china didnt hurt russia. I was able to get 30 IPC’s production for Russia and thereby powerful enough to defend all my lands while the americans and british were able to invade europe.



  • Xeno, I’d love to play you on the zone, but for some reason I can’t launch any games on the zone lately. I even tried making a new zone name and that didnt work, I repatched and I recopied that directx file and nothing works. I may just reinstall the game and the zone and the patch. But, if I get it back up I’d love to play you.

    And in response to the africa comment, if the germans can secure africa, the 40 or so IPC investment in conquering it is made up in a few turns.



  • Germany securing Africa is great unless at the expense of European security. What good is it to visit the pyramids if your drinking vodka or tea in Berlin?



  • I never said overcommit. I spend max 12$ on africa a turn.



  • For how many turns? Can you force a stalemate with Russia and hold off US/Britian amphibious attacks as well?



  • Usually I play defensive against russia till Japan can draw him away, then go all out offense, even taking the risk of an allied landing in Western Europe/Germany.

    I find that if I play defensive vs russia, use a mid sized airforce to delay the US and UK, I can conquer africa and still hold eastern Europe solidly.

    Well if you get it working I would like to try and play it out some time. My philosophy seems to be a bit different than many people who post here, and I would like to try my strategies out against a fresh set of opponents some time.

    I have a lot of experience playing the game but have never played online. Perhaps this would give me the chance to get a game or two under my belt before hand.

    If you get it working let me know and we could work out a time to get a game going.
