First off I didnâ€t move the Alaskan CB or for that madder any of the US CBs in the pacific. If you have a problem with their location, thatâ€s fine. Where did you want them to go? What is your solution/suggestion?
I think the Alaskan CB is in a good spot myself.
The one out in the middle (near Marshall) I guess is for the supplies to the Philippines. Again I did not put it there.
I never like the one near the Line Islands but I got such a response when I suggested removing some CBs that I left it. After I gave it more thought, can it really hurt?
The only argument I can see for having the US CBs where they are in the Pacific is that it pulls the US quicker into the pacific. The Japanese can strike them without hitting the mainland, I kind of like that idea. It keeps the â€œturtleâ€ US players from just sitting back. This will force him to protect his assets.
The other argument for CBs near these islands (Line, Gilbert, Marshall) is that it adds value to the islands. Without the CBs this area is void of value. I like this idea too, adding value to the region.
On the same note some people have suggested that the CB near Wake Island be removed. I will use the same argument here, without the CB these islands (Wake, Iwo, etc.) have no value. This gives the area some value. (By the way this is another CB I did not add.)
The current set up in my option will force more navel battles to take place in the pacific.
I donâ€t think the map needs to represent convoys that moved up and down the coast of the same nation that is pointless.
So… the US convoy in the Atlantic, canâ€t it represent goods going to Britain and later troop/supply movements when they land in Europe?
CBs should be a bit of an abstract concept.
Do CBs need some work? Sure, Iâ€m open to suggestions.
