    Another great J round. Great defense in SZ6 though. Didn’t want to gamble damaging an AC on the des hit 😮

    OK, shaking off the demoralization and putting together a US4. I don’t think it’s time to make desperate attacks yet, but it may be soon.

    That battle could’ve really gone bad 😮

  • '22

    @gamerman01 btw, going to Spain tomorrow. Away 1 week with no possibility to play 🙂

  • 2023 '22 '15 '11 '10 Official Q&A Moderator

    @pejon_88 Thanks, I need things to slow down a little anyway. Elche won’t die, he’s playing me real tough with his Allies and I’ve hardly played the Axis in years. Did knock down the London complex on round 11, and pretty strong on both maps, so I should be able to finish the deal.

    I’ll have 6 when that one is done - I guess I want in the playoffs, for some reason. Just because it’s been a long time I guess. I remember not enjoying the pressure and high expectations, but most of that is probably gone now - I’m a dark horse again?! 😄

    I thought, when I was whining about Jap defense, that when I lost nothing in TrJ maybe those 2 might actually cause problems for Italy, but I didn’t dare hope it. So yay!

    I suppose it’s actually fairly normal. Any weirdness is because of choices I’ve made 👼 You’ve mainly done well doing what you’re supposed to do.

    I’m just upset that my signature Russia defense got blown up by dice. But dice tend to even out if a lot of them are thrown. I was super lucky to take down a destroyer in 6, and was also nice to get away with an airstrike of Cha. Keeping cool and adapting when the dice go against you is a key part of the game where I have trouble.

  • 2023 '22 '15 '11 '10 Official Q&A Moderator

    Have a nice trip, I’m jealous! I will almost certainly never be blessed with a trip to Europe, and Spain would be one of my favorites to visit, I’m quite sure.

    Haha, you’ll probably do great in the play-offs.

    @gamerman01 Yup, every UK unit less for a potential counter-attack is what I need to see.

  • '22

    @gamerman01 Agree regarding ME.

    Well spoken! And yes, your R4 was really unfavorable, letting me maybe get a stronghold in Ukraine. Will look at it now.

    @gamerman01 Yeah it was great! Going from minus Celsius to Swedish summer weather 🙂

    It’s far for you to go to Europe, I understand that. Have you traveled elsewhere?

    Permission to hold back 2 mech in Moscow? They were in combat move on Rostov, but with overwhelming force. Made some miscalculation and need them back in Moscow.
