L20 #1 trulpen (X) vs akreider2 (A+9) BM3


  • I don’t think it’s affected by G, so I’ll move on. I thought about hitting the des, but have better things to do. If you want to you can move the frenchies during R.


  • Or, I don’t know. It’s still your nation. I’ll let you play it instead. It’s better and avoids dubious situations.

    Also, what do you think I should have done better? I think I should have gone heavy with the US into the Atlantic (at least heavy enough to have a convoy going) as the Allies have to threaten invasions into Europe and N. Africa (where the UK has a very short supply chain into valuable countries, and there are also several NOs that are important).

    Up until the German invasion of Iraq, I recall that I was winning most of the medium sized battles (is this true or is my memory bad?), and I was doing relatively well on the Total Unit Value. But my positioning mistake seems to have outweighed all of that and your income is just too much.


  • There were some things. The russian sb’s did some good work, but it should still be a mistake to invest in those. 4 inf is so much better for Russia.

    I agree that you had the upper-hand regarding most battles larger than skirmishes, and the convoy disruptions were just insane (both when collecting and avoiding).

    I’ll try to look into it to give an analysis with more depth.

    I’m more comfortable as Axis and severely suck as Allies, so I’m not so keen on playing them.

  • 2007 AAR League

    I think the Russian SB is both a tiny amount of money, and a fine investment - so long as Germany isn’t going for a fast run on the capital (which you weren’t).

    It looks like a big problem with BM3 is that Russia has very little to do, at least in the first 5-6 rounds and maybe more (and 80-90% of the Allies strategic thinking goes into the UK/US megaturn). Russia cannot counterattack the German (plus Italian) stack unless you let them do it. So whether Russia buys all infantry, a mix of infantry and artilleries, or the occasional plane - doesn’t really matter.

    If you have good players on both sides it looks like it is too hard / not worth it for Germany to take Moscow before turn 8 or even later, and it isn’t worth it for Russia to try to counter-attack the German stack until then.
