• I think it has been pretty well established that if you bid over $9, you WILL get the Allies.

    Bids on this site (with no restriction to half saved as cash, and no restriction on number of units per territory) tend to be slightly lower than elsewhere (where $9 is pretty average).  But with and unrestricted bid, $9 IPC could add 3 INF to someplace like West Russia (has anyone ever run a sim of THAT to see how badly it messes up traditional R1 moves?), and thus is not very common.  $7 or $8 seems to be almost the default bids on this site (and $8 is almost the universal bid in League games).

    I just did.  :-D

    If you bring everything (12 inf, 2 art, 4 arm, 2 fig) Russia loses about 4 units(more like 3.5).

    If you attack Belo with only 1 offensive unit(fig/arm), Russia loses about 4 units. =5 inf, 2 art, 3-4 arm.

    If you attack Belo with 2 offensive units, Russia loses about 5 inf. =4 inf, 2 art, 3-4 arm.

    Armor figures reflect whether or not you brought the Arch arm(best chance to take) or just fig(s) to Belo.

    I have entirely too much time on my hands.  :roll:

    It still amazes me that people are willing to give the Axis $8.


  • @NoMercy:

    if you ever got a 10 bid for fun you could always place a fgt on Norway and hit the UK BB, trn, Russian Sub with 1 german sub, 2 fgts, 1 bmb

    well Soviet player can attack Norway on its turn with
    3 inf, 1 ten, 2 fig
    so…


  • i tried with a sub in SZ 8 against Jen in my first game against her, the sub is even better then the fig, since there is no des present

    but she has foreseen it and attacked Norway, so i had 1 fig less and couldn done the attack successfully anymore :wink:

    well, i would really like to see if we are goin to make it the average winning bid number in league games
    so from what you say it would be like 8.5 or slightly less


  • The $9 bid is average for places like the ladder rather than here.

    Here it is usually $8 in the League with a number of $5 - $7 bids.

    Call it a $7.5 average bid, approximately.

    What ever the bid turns out to be, GIVE it all to Japan.

    agree with you on this one, and death your avatar doesnt stand for what you are tryin to say here, or am i wrong

    Honestly NPB, the “how” is easy.  You take the bid money, go over to Japan, take his hand, stick the money in his hand, say, “use wisely my son,” turn around, and go back to Germany.  Easy.  :wink: :-P


  • Fox, that response was worth a Karma point :-D

    Yeah, You pretty much beat me to the punch on that one Fox.

    And I am serious about giving it to JPN, even though I have a German Av.

    Try thinking globally instead of locally.  :evil:

    Ditto (although I think he meant - what kind of units for Japan and where)

    By the way, I believe that at the TripleA Ladder site they use a STANDARD bid of 9 for the Axis - I guess they flip coins for who plays axis? Wonder what their Axis win ratio is…

    Anywho I don’t like to be Axis with 7.

    I like the bid to go to Germany because they have more pressing needs.

    I’ve used the SZ 14 TRN, it was nice because it enabled me to bring more units to Africa, thus not losing any of the benefit of the Libya bid, plus the ability to evacuate Africa when it becomes a losing battle, and the ability to attack Ukr / Cauc more quickly is nice too. Keeps the fleet alive longer too. If you add the purchase of an AC your fleet can live long enough for Japanese reinforcements to arrive, meaning that you control the Med. even longer.

    Haven’t used it in a while, but after having tried some others (mostly the Libya bid) I think I’m ready to try it again.

    Sweet, thanks for the Karma Switch, and to whoever else gave me one.  :-D :mrgreen: Deaths Head maybe?

    No, that was me - see my “Ditto” above :)


  • @Frood:

    Oops, sorry Frood. :oops: :|  I mis-read your post I think.  I just, for some reason, saw only what you had in the brackets.  Shame on me.
