I just want to point out, that this even aplies if the transport doesn’t have to move. If the British want to use the Russian transport to ship toops to Norway, they have to wait on the boat for one round.
What is your game plan. What are your goals. How are you coordinating the 3 allies to achieve those goals? What are your opponents goals? How can you block him/her from achieving those goals? I am not talking about taking a capital as a goal. That is the end goal. I am talking about short term goals. (e.g, take and hold Western Europe. Hold the Yakut Sinkaing line against the Japanese for 4 turns. etc.)
What is your overall all strategy? Your goals are steps on the ladder of your strategy to victory.
When you can answer these questions, then you will find you will fare better in your games.
Lastly, be flexible. You will lose important battles. Plans will be countered. Be ready to adapt to these events. Balance risk of loss versus risk of gain. Retreat is often the best thing to do after a bad roll of the dice in a big battle. Reinforce and try again next turn. If you can’t wait for next turn, then you are being outplayed. Study and learn why.
“Not just in A&A, but in life in general. Compare the amount of coverage the Pacific gets compared to the Europe in terms of movies, media coverage, games, text, and the like. Interesting considering the war in the Pacific was much more intense.”
-TG Moses VI
Ah true. But you are thinking of it in the broad spectrum of the war in general. There are tons of movies out there about both theaters of war. The thing is, most movies about Europe cover the war there in general (not necessarily the entire war, but large chunks of it covering many battles). Movies about the Pacific usually focus on one or two, maybe three specific battles. Therefore, because Europe is given a wider span of battles, it always seems like the Pacific is left out, when in truth movies about the Pacific are a lot more specific to a certain battle or two.
See, this just proves the love in our community, even an over-the-hill geezer like Jefe can still have fun. I am going to have to put the drinking game to use, as soon as I teach my roommate how to play.
just a personal question…
Are you a heavy drinker?
With that nick and close
it justs looks that way.
ROFL! that’s a good one!
Cheers! is not an exhortation to drink, it’s so people in the boards cheer-up.
I play online WW2 flight sims like Aces High and WW2OL. People really need to cheer-up on those boards
Incidently, I got my nickname while doing carrier trials for an Aces High naval squadron. I couldn’t catch the wire when landing, and that’s what the Navy calls a bolter…it stuck.
With that said…Cheers!
