AA50 will be lots of trying and failing until we know more about what strats are good and what’s not so good.
I would gamble with India IC, stacking as much as possible, or maybe leave India and try to stack Egypt instead. Both India and Egypt will have to be retreated, but 3 rnds might be profitable enough, and the units will move to either Persia or retreating Egypt forces south, hopefully slowing axis expansion in Africa.
If Jap doesnt kill most allie naval units in pacific, then I would try KJF with US. Jap starts with 17 ipc production, and US with 55 ipc.
Uk would probably be best of doing the usual Nor-Kalia shuck-shuck, or maybe even north Africa, not unfamiliar from AAR.
I think China will be completely pwned by Jap forces, should be allowed to move these units out from China to Russia or India
I miss Russian ftrs in the 41 setup, they are dearly missed, more TT’s in EE means more trading.
If Allies already secured Africa, then maybe US could try something Alaska-SFE shuck-shuck.
Whats really nice with AA50, is that there are now good or bad strats, yet 8-)
We know the map, and how much TT’s are worth, but we dont know the setup, yet. Most important is that we dont know what it will mean practically, because it has to be played out before we can make any conclusions on whatever strat we’re discussing.
Those strats that are inferior in AAR may turn out to be really good in AA50.
We can’t even say for sure that AA50 is unbalanced!!
I’m really looking forward to play AA50 in TripleA, (not just the map) hopefully the TripleA version of AA50 it will be as close to the boardgame as AAR is today.
