If the UK fig is flown in for defense, then Bury is skipped.
Thanks, Tri- this is the crux of what I was trying to say. I even put it in bold in my last post to make it clear 😄
But I’ll do it again because it’s fun.
Russian and British choices dictate whether Japan can even think about Buryatia or not.
Buryatia is only possible if the right conditions exist. An extra British fighter in China means the right conditions do not exist. And if you do choose to do it, you build accordingly (3 transports), which deals with the U.S. threat.
To every question of “well what if _______ and what if________”, I answer- don’t attack Buryatia.
If you really want to go KJF, you either go Ssinkiang and Indian ICs, or you build Pacfleet on US1 threatening attack on Pearl US2 (Japan shouldn’t be strong enough to wipe out the US2 fleet), or you can try Alaska transport chain. Buncha things you can do really. I note you already mentioned the LRA option.
I think we could probably devote a whole board to the sub rules. I think in Classic (bot many games of Classic under the belt went to that backwards via Europe) subs could come into a zone, shoot, and leave without being shot at. Not sure on that though.
Our problem was we were not conducting opening fire every round that subs were still on the battle board. We would have opening shots then treat them just like any other naval units.
The sub rules are different in all four versions of the game with subs that much I’m very clear on. The sub rules for Revised I’m very clear on because I think they are the cleanest.
Now go entertain yourself censoring/banning me, like you love so much to do.
Actually, you are the only one who is working at getting you banned. You already expounded on how you were banned from another gaming site. And you were previously banned in several of your other incarnations from this site. Eventually you may grow up enough to figure out that it is not the entire A&A gaming world that is out to get you, but that you are just an asshole and that no one wants to have to put up with your shit.
@ponef In regards to what? This thread kind of wound up diverting itself in like 3 different directions:
Whether UK should retake Egypt B1 Vs. send the FTR from the India Carrier over to the US Pearl Harbor Fleet.
Whether Japan should attack the Pearl Harbor Fleet, the UK India Fleet, or both on J1.
Whether UK should attack Borneo B1 or not.
The answer to basically all of these boiled down to some combination of “it depends on how the dice went G1” and “are you playing under WBC Rules or not”. Seeing as WBC no longer runs tournaments for Revised (or any A&A, for that matter), we’re left to assume all games being played will be OOB rules (or at least LHTR), in which case Egypt suddenly becomes much less of a priority in the grand scheme of things.
Personally, I got to try the strategy out at the 2018 WBC in one of my games. It worked well for me, as Japan was routinely baited into attacking the USN, losing the TT and the DD in the process. This allowed me to wipe out the remaining IJN Fleet A1 (Bomber from East USA + FTR from West USA + Navy from US West Coast + FTR from Hawaii). This crippled the IJN and let me rapidly come to dominate the Pacific.
You cannot buy 2 transports and a carrier on Japan 1. That means trading in a transport to get a carrier, not a trade I want, or getting two transports (3 or 4 total available on Japan 2) and a destroyer thus not tying up your fleet on such non-sense as transport protection duty.
Not to mention, when I go after the American fleet with Japan, I always wish I had another destroyer. I never wish I had another transport. (Talking rounds 12+ when Japan goes after the Allied fleet to protect S. Germany)
