    Combat Hit Differential Summary :

    I17+US17.tsvg


  • @victoryfirst friendly observation. Did you mean to leave the US transports in SZ 14 alone? An Austro-Hungarian submarine can slip under the fleet in SZ16 and eliminate them all (as long as he doesn’t get hit by the mines in SZ16 of course).


  • @the_good_captain
    No, my bad! I didn’t realize the subs could move past my fleet 🙂

    Here is the edited turn:

  • @victoryfirst I’ll post this for reference (page 16). Submarines are so different between different versions of axis and allies and are just complicated in general. I like to tell other players, “If you think you understand submarines, you don’t understand submarines.” hah!

    *also, sorry about not posting the AH turn. I forgot to paste the game turn summary for AH before I copied over it with Germany. No big deal though. You can see the game history to see what moved where, etc.

    Alright, I know this game is far from over yet, but I can already tell I will not be on the winning side. The TUV is almost the same, and my production is a bit higher, but you will break into Africa, which is a tricky area for me to defend. The Western Front has been a stalemate for some time, but with a lot of angry Austro-Hungarians coming, I have to retreat a little bit 🙂 I can probably put up a defensive line and hold out a couple of turns, but eventually, the CP will have too much stuff and I will get pushed back further, which leads to you having more income, more units can be brought in, etc…

    So yeah, basically I was a bit too slow as the Allies in my opinion. I should have stacked Italy up a bit earlier than the Americans, I realized it too late 🙂

    You played very well as the CP. I thought if Russia survived for a long enough time, I could expect an Allied victory, but this wasn’t the case. You hold out very well as Germany, and after Italy fell, the strong Austria-Hungarians came in and I had no chance whatsoever to break through your lines. You did an excellent job of spending the correct amount of resources in each theater. If you had spent a little more on the Russian front, the Western Front would have maybe collapsed. If you had spent a little more on the Western Front, Russia would probably have survived a bit longer, giving the Allies more time.

    So, here is it officially, I’ll raise the white flag and there is after years of fighting finally peace in Europe 🙂

    Things I will do differently in a next game as the Allies (would you like to play another? I do!):

    • Making sure Italy doesn’t fall

    • Spend more resources for India (I didn’t like how India was boxed in like that lol 🙂

    • Be decisive with the Americans (I was not sure what is best to do with them. First I invaded Greece, after that failed I stacked up the Western Front and when Italy was about to fall, I stacked up Rome but I was too late xD)

    I still think the Triple Entente has the advantage, as if Italy survived and I kept Africa secure, I would probably have had an income advantage. It seems like there are too many enemy units for the CP. There is a threat here, I have to take this out, I want to defend against this, I have to take that but I don’t have enough units and so on.

    Let me know your thoughts on this game. I really liked playing this game against a human opponent and I would also like to play another. Are you going to make some videos about this game in the future? I would love to watch them!


  • @victoryfirst thanks for writing this. It’s helpful to understand the other side.

    For the CP, I cannot tell if it is better to capture all the Russian territories or to create the Revolution. It was nice having all that money but so expensive to protect against the British in India. With the Revolution, I would not have had to defend Sevastopol AND Mesopotamia. It’s not clear to me what is better at this point.

    YES, I would love to play another. I will get AH1 out shortly and good game my friend! 😃
