I know a number of people take issue with Ottawa as a VC.
Here’s my two cents:
I don’t think the Axis need to invade North America to win.
IMTO as long as this statement remains true, I don’t have a problem with VCs being in North America.
Conversely, if a successful Axis lodgement in North American does not spell Axis victory then I think the game needs fixing… most likely by putting VCs in North America.
Personally, I cannot imagine FDR and Churchill shrugging off the Nazis taking Montreal as long as Warsaw or Hong Kong was in Allied hands.
