  • I think a couple of territory adjustments have made a big difference. First the US can no longer threaten Korea from Hawaii. That was always a key weakness of Japan. The Japanese cannot let the US take Korea and hold it because then they build a minor IC there and that is big trouble for Japan. That forced the Japanese to leave at least some ground forces in or around Korea to protect it. Now that is not necessary because the US cannot get there in one Turn and if they move against it the Japanese navy from Caroline or Philippines just moves north to counter it. Secondly by splitting the Sea of Japan into two sea zones even with a large US naval presence in Hawaii the Japanese are still able to build naval units on the backside of Japan. That allows them to try and maintain naval parity with the US without having to use mainland IC slots to do it allowing them to bring more forces onto the mainland than before and that has always been Japan’s biggest weakness; land forces. My gosh look at how many Jap ground troops I have in this game!!!

    It has always been easier to defend at sea than attack and the new carrier rules just amplify that. WIth the additional Chinese territory it is actually a benefit to Japan because it allows them to gain more money than before. With that additional money they have as much as the US which means the US cannot gain fleet superiority. Without fleet superiority it is impossible to do anything worthwhile with a navy.

    I am not sure I can beat Trulpen in the pacific even with a 100% US investment and that is like… wow.


  • 2020

    Yep. I can’t do anything in the Pacific. The US can’t even build a fleet since it cannot get out from W. Coast with your fleet sitting in Carolines- The other side of Carolines. Not attackable, and completely dominating the Central Pacific.



  • I agree 100%. Unless the US has a superior fleet than Japan does there is nothing the US can do in the pacific. Which means all Japan has to do is maintain parity at sea while they push inland against China, India and Russia. In our game it will not be long before Japan is collecting MORE than the US. And Japan has not even taken India and they have more money!!!

  • @surfer hey dudes. Great game. I’ve been following your game and this conversation with interest, particularly regarding the issue of balance. I noticed that you guys are playing version 1.0 of the map, rather than the current version 4.0… Version 4.0 some substantive changes impacting the situation in the Pacific, including:

    1. The sea zones around Korea have been redrawn so that it can’t be contested by Japan from Malaya and elsewhere;

    2. Carrier defense has been reduced to 1, and carrier scramble now requires the presence of a defending surface warship in the target sea zone (player enforced);

    3. A U.S. marine has been added to Hawaii at the start of the game.

    To download this update, simply open the “Download Maps” screen, click on “Good Quality” and then click on the “Update” tab. Look forward to hearing your thoughts with the new changes.


  • 2020

    @regularkid Good points. But for our game only the carrier scramble rule would have made any difference

    1. The allies were never in a position to reach Malaya without being slaughtered so reaching Korea from there is a non-factor
    2. All possible naval battles were going to be (at best) even numbers of CVs so reducing to 1 from 2 would make the defender less favored, but still favored. So no one would have attacked.

    The map changes that completely change the Pacific in my mind are
    a) the interior SZ 6 that allows Japan to build even with superior forces in Hawaii. (See @AndrewAAGamer’s comment above)
    b) The split of the SZ around the Carolines. Japan can use the mobility bonus of the port without being in range of US forces in Hawaii. Thus can’t be chased off. And yet from there they can control SZ 27 (off Hawaii) and SZ31 (off Johnson Island). The point here is that now the US can’t get any forces into the game without consolidating all forces in Hawaii (or Johnson Island). You can’t hang out in Queensland and shuck naval forces to SZ31 which typically is a free space.
    Perhaps move boundary between SZ23 &24 to allow all of Carolines to be attacked.


  • 2020

    I should amend the comment “the only map changes…” because the map is very different. And requires many adaptations of a typical strategy.
    The placement of islands into SZ boundaries is a very dynamic change in the game and I really like it!
    The two points above are just some observations of how the topology of the map affects game play in a way the supports J.



  • @surfer

    You have accurately assessed some of Japan’s advantages in PTV over Global: the availability of a safe harbor in sz 6 for construction of new ships, and the splitting of the Caroline seazone making it more difficult to Hold as Allies are two major changes in favor of Japan.

    That being said, I don’t think I was clear about the significance of the Korea Seazone: it was redrawn to prevent Japan from contesting Korea from Malaya and elsewhere, in the event of Russian or American capture. Below is an image of the new Seazone configuration in Version 4.0. In the prior Map, Japan did not have to get out of position to deadzone Korea. Now it does.

    Also, if I understand your post correctly, you suggest that the US fleet at Hawaii (sz 27) can’t hit the Japanese fleet at Caroline (sz 35), but that Japan can hit Hawaii. This is not the case. Hawaii can only be reached from sz 34, which is in range of any ships in Hawaii (sz 27).

    I think the most efficient way to counter Japan is to apply pressure on multiple fronts. The Allies are given the means to do so with a boosted Russian economy, Siberian factory, and buffed China. I think it would be interesting to hear your thoughts after playing version 4.0. If you are down for a game, lemme know!

  • @regularkid

    On our map SZ6 does completely surround Korea. I don’t think it had the US Marine though.


  • 2020

    @regularkid Sure the change around SZ 6 helps, and since the development of a “safe harbor” for Japan was intended, I guess I need to try a few more games to see how it plays out.

    The point about the Carolines is that Japan can hang out on “their side” and use the Caroline’s mobility buff to dominate the Central Pacific – without being threatened by a US build up in Hawaii. This really hampers US development since they no longer have a clear path from W.Coast to Queensland, the typical build up point to attack the extended Japanese fleet.
    Japan can build and control all of the Pacific, while the US is left hanging out in Hawaii because they can’t send forces anywhere without escorts.
