• @gebs99:

    I have a question. I was reading in another post that its a legal move to reinforce with land units in your NCM a teritorry you have just captured during the combat movement. For example if I invade finalnd with russian soldiers and take it over then I could move in my non combat movement some tanks that didnt had any action before in the turn as long as they are within range?

    Reading under Non-Combat movement (page 21):

    @AA50:

    Land units can more into any friendly territories.  A just conquered territory is a freindly territory.

    The AA50 rules even point out that this is a good move:

    @AA50:

    This is a good time to gather your units, either to strengthen vulnerable territories or to reinforce units at the front


  • Why don’t you just say Russia gives itself up to support a 3 unit producing India?


  • I would like to play against this strat in TripleA low luck game, but sadly AA50 is not finished yet for release in the stable version.

    If I think a strat is vastly inferior, then I could possibly be interested in playing reg dice, eventually good dice rolls can only bring you so far.


  • This strategy is basically the same as my “Russian Sacrifice Strategy” that I wrote about in early January.  As I mentioned in my thread, Germany’s best chance of defeating it is if they get a good tech early on.  Also, in my thread, I assumed that Germany was going all out against Russia by building tanks and bombers so that Russia will fall as quickly as possible (probably turn 4).  This strategy keeps India and Australia in UK hands and keeps the Chinese alive.  It even keeps part of Russia alive (although admittedly they can’t collect income while their capital is occupied).

    Now, I know that most people in my thread stated that it wouldn’t work against a good player.  I see the same thing being stated in this thread.  Even if that’s true, remember that both Wodan and I are assuming that Russia falls quickly due to Germany building a bunch of tanks and bombers.  Every turn beyond turn 4 that Russia survives makes this plan even more effective.  If I encountered a German player who built mostly infantry/artillery on turn 1 AND if I were in control of all the allied countries, then I would seriously consider trying it.  In fact, I think that against a G1 inf/art build, it’s almost a guaranteed strategy, barring continuous bad dice rolls and/or Germany getting heavy bombers on turn 1.  Who knows, the next time I play the allies, I might give it a try.


  • Wodan set a premise for his theory, tech is off and NO is on. If it was a strat with tech then it would not be a serious theory. His statements are actually serious because, just like using the method of science, if a theory can be disproved, it can also be proven.
    Personally, I would not play with tech anyway.

    The main reason why this strat is inferior is because it assumes Jap will be taken down pretty fast.

    I also suspect that axis may have advantage in AA50 -41 with NOs, but I’m not sure.

    Indeed.  I wanna play it.  Play by Forum would give me carpal tunnel syndrome.

    There’s un anstable version, but it works perfect.

    The only thing I noticed so far are some error messages in History. But you can ignore them, and still look at it.
    For the rest, it seems to work great.
