  • 2019

    After making my builds and combat moves but not yet posting, I decided to change my builds. Rather than redoing 32 combat moves, I am notifying you in advance of the edits that I will be making to my upcoming post. Building an additional transport and infantry instead of 2 marines.


  • 2019

    Did combat, but trying to decide where to place my planes to be able to strike Chinese and Russian armies, while fulfilling other goals. Going for a run, will think this over.

    Apparently I was offline when performing combat.

    That was an ordeal. I should always check that I’m online before combat. Online result took 2 hits instead of 1 on Sumatra. But that’s the way it goes, not that bad. Had to retake DEI this turn for the cash and since you have no transports left to take them back on your turn. Previously, I was able to make Yun too strong for India to take and China wasn’t adjacent yet. So Chinese army could be destroyed if it tried for Yun. But I didn’t want to put all my troops from Japan into northern China without a NB. Feels like Napoleon forced marching across Europe to individually defeat his enemies. With 4 opponents in all directions, Japan has to race around, trying to keep you at bay and making hard choices. Japan can’t protect every part of the empire all at once.

    @ArtofWar1947
    Scramble Italian fighters to SZ 97?
    If so, OOL?


  • 2019

    yes scramble all 3, bat calc says you would lose 5 extra units. Also, Italy could still defeat a UK invasion


  • 2019

    OOL BB tilt, 3 subs, 1 DD let me know how many hits


  • 2019

    CA if sixth hit


  • 2019

    Tell me how many hits before I choose the 6th hit


  • 2019

    Tough choice, if I take the last DD, then your surviving subs have first strike on round 2. But your subs can absorb my fighter hits if I keep the DD, but not if I sink my last DD. So I hope you only give 5 hits or less.


  • 2020 2019 2018 '16 '15 '14 '13

    @ArtofWar1947
    5 hits: Tip BB, 3 Subs, DD?


  • 2019

    yes please


  • 2019

    only 3 hits, not good


  • 2020 2019 2018 '16 '15 '14 '13

    @FMErwinRommel
    I meant to go to SZ 96 first in case I need to retreat there.


  • 2019

    okay that’s fine


  • 2020 2019 2018 '16 '15 '14 '13

    @FMErwinRommel
    2 hits by US subs. OOL/


  • 2019

    DD and CA


  • 2019

    I needed some lucky dice there and didn’t get them. But why waste lucky dice on a losing game?


  • 2019

    Since I knew that I couldn’t defend the Italian fleet or outrun the Allied fleet, I should have taken Malta on Italy’s turn.
