Well I just follow the manual :p? Didn’t they try to balance it out?
IMO it is fairly balanced for casual or novice players but as player skill level increases allies will have the advantage to the point that a decent axis bid is required for expert players to balance the sides.
I think if you adjust your strategy to purchase infantry and other units rather than just tanks and fighter planes you should find your games a lot more balanced. Also, the key for the allies is that they have to work together for a common goal like all 3 focus on Germany. You should start thinking along the lines of if you make a move with England, how can you back the move up with the US before Germany has a chance to go.
Then that will be fine for now :). For me it’s not just playing the game, it’s playing the game with friend(s).
Well it worked didn’t it? I was axis in the game I described ;).
