  • So is it just me? I hear people say PtV favors the Allies however I think it favors the Axis. Expect for some poor rolling in China early on I feel you have played a good game and yet the Allies are stymied everywhere and Germany and Japan are both gaining on Russia. I see a Path to Victory for the Axis but not the Allies. (Pun intended)


  • 2020

    No. I agree with you!! Especially the Japanese war. Sure, I messed up with the Chinese, but honestly I thought I could slow you down with the vast space of territory China had. But as you mentioned, after J3 you were making more than the US!! I had to ignore Germany most of the first 8 turns just to keep up with Japan, much less take it down a notch–I don’t see that I’ll ever be in a position to do that.

    Of course, I made mistakes that a better player would avoid. China and recently the Russian Siberian army are good examples, but I feel that 2 aspects of the game are essentially forcing the game towards the Axis:
    a) carriers and lesser extent airfields controlling much larger areas in PtV
    b) mech inf = 5 IPCs!

    A lot of talk has been said on carriers, and not much to add except this–the Axis start the game with many more aircraft than the Allies, and buffs like these are just that much more important in the early game when you are trying to build your forces.

    The mech inf is probably the single biggest reason (besides the size of Russia) in my mind the Axis don’t just wipe the Allies. The added expense is just about always too much to justify, and forces each side to slow down their expansion. Since the Axis are doing most of that expansion, this disproportionately affects them. It is also probably a big contributor to why the Axis did not just overwhelm the Allies early on and why this game is still “competitive” this late in the game. Where competitive = Allies TUV > Axis TUV and production approximately equal. Of course the result of building more inf vice mechs is that the front lines are more static with the Allies having more difficulty because they have to transport their forces into these front lines. And need more than usual because the number of forces involved. Your German transports being a particular counter-example, but since I can’t build in the Atlantic essentially they become fast movers for your already superior numbers of land troops.

    This actually isn’t much different than the normal games with the exception that I cannot see how to defeat Japan. The long supply lines for the Atlantic are counterbalanced by the spread of battlefields to attack. And they aren’t that long 2 moves to attack sometimes just 1. The Pacific is ridiculous. The interior lines of communication afford the Japanese the ability to hold everything. The added territory of China gives added $$s and Japan can just play a slow game and develop. That is not how the Pacific war has been fought previously. The last thing Japan wanted to do was build slowly because the Allies could build faster. They can still do so as the UK Pacific + ANZAC help the US. But in this game, it requires almost all of the US build since UK is minimally producing–just to match Japan, which of course means the Germans will roll. This is offset by the Russian horde so the game is not completely out of balance.

    There is also this feature of the game: Since few land mobile units are produced and the land map is larger–Russian and China, the front lines are more separated from each other. No ability to move fighters from one front to help the other. Not sure how this changes the Axis / Allied balance, but I would think it helps the Axis since it is a large part of my previous Allied defense to use fighters as quick reaction forces. However, it does force the Axis to truly separate their units up without easy re-enforcement. Makes defending easier.


  • 2020

    This got so long I’ll distill my comments to
    a) There needs to be some adjustment to Japan’s ability to grow – perhaps the changes in CV scramble and defense will help. Maybe a 2 IPC increase in cost?
    b) The only reason this game is not over is that no one has enough mobility to just push through.

    Cheers,



  • In my only other game of PtV Trulpen is the Axis. Based on our game I decided to go 100% with the US into the pacific the entire game and still I am not able to do anything of consequence. At the moment the US is collecting more than Japan but that is temporary. In two Turns Japan will take India and that will swing things back into Japan’s favor. ANZAC is cowering for their own life so they are useless and only China is still helping the US. But once India is out of the game Japan will reallocate their forces to go after China taking them out. Maybe the US will be able to be effective by then but the point being only a 100% effort by the US has given me any hope in the pacific and frankly Russia and UK cannot beat Germany and Italy by themselves. I would much rather be the Axis than the Allies.

    Yep, after 13 rds – an eternity in any previous game. The Russians are now dead. No one came to help and they are too far to help. But 13 rounds of mostly Pacific buys did not put the Japanese on notice or even make them uncomfortable.

    the point is that yep 100% Pacific is possible for a long time, but Russia will go down with a whimper and no significant Allied forces are then present to stop the resulting German hordes. Nothing has been built to stop that due to Pacific focus.

    An eternity without any foreign help, that is…
