Well, i would have mention Italy been able to break blockade but did not think of it before. Also, i don’t think there is stupid ideas. In my line of work, i seen the stupidiest things being implemented, it’s scary eh.
Anyways. I was looking at the map and the issue of being blockaded and stucked in Baltic.
Why would the german player force himself being trap there?
- Let’s say you build an IC in France turn 1. A second IC for Germany seems a necessity in AA50 and likely France will be the popular choice.
- Let’s say you base your fleet right there in SZ7 from turn 2.
- Worst case scenario, Italy is preped for can opening planes at the ready.
Sz7 is the sea zone you want to defend anyways. Your strategy implies you will clean up the UK fleet round 1. Also that you don’t want allies to take France.
From round 2, i’m pretty sure you could mount up your GUARD effectively from France and there is hardly anything UK-USA can do to effectively block you in that position even without Italy air-force.
Hey, being overly ambitious, could prolly block all sea zone around UK but i’m not sure if a sub can prevent deploying in the same sea zone. Prolly not, eh.
