Well I voted for having a competitive game, but when we play we always make sure we have fun and a competitive game. I’ve lost everytime but I have learned to play better now and I can hold off as the axis against two veterans as the allies for about 6 hours. They used to beat me in 1 hour.
I play restricted, so all i do is move my naval units to england. As much as possible inf to karelia, one fighter to india. Three tanks into russia. 6 men into yakut, and leave one standing to the right of Yakut(cant remember what the land is called).
This has worked fine for me over the years.
ok, so i was a little rough. i apologize. i was actually hoping that i could instigate you to try a game or two against some experienced opponents. you obviously are interested in discussing/working out ideas and strategies, and i am impressed that you are so willing to listen when others critique your ideas. everyone could learn a little from you in that respect. anyways, i’m going to offer a few ideas on the other topics that you have posted!
Apology Accepted; and mine offered in return.
To be all honest, All I CAN do it seems is to discuss strategy here, take those ideas and test them myself using my apparently poor version of PC based A&A.
I’ll discuss anything. Hell one of my earliest posts was in response to a KGF strategy I had never seen implemented to the degree that appears so common here. It worked, as far as it went, just could not withstand the subsequent UK/US counter.
And I am not afraid to try crazy ideas either (see my Japan AF transfer post to blast the allied fleet in J4 in another thread). There are so few major variants that exist in the early stages of the game, and discussing later stages is next to impossible because of all that preceeds it. I am willing to consider even the most off-the wall ideas, if there is a chance it might be plausible. About the only things that are not worth strategy discussions are things like “roll all tech as Japan until you hit Heavy Bombers” or other such tripe.
I prefer to play with the base units, no technology, wth the game rules as they exist (except to “boost” my oponent in a PC game to make it moe challenging). And I like to play the Axis. I play a strong Japan, whether the US goes after Japan or Germany. So my main posts here are always going to be from the perspective of boosting Germany, helping Germany survive long enough for Japan to be a threat in Europe/Central Asia, or weakening Allied powers to allow Germany to survive long enough for Japan to flex its might.
If anyone knows of a real-time online gaming site, or if anyone has the Hasbro version and would like exchange information to set up a game, I am more than willing. I just need a time and an IP address…
