Is an R1 attack on Germany's navy a good play?

    @axis_roll:

    If the allies get a bid and can place a unit in gib, then this makes the russian bomber on sz13 that more enticing.
    Now Germany needs to commit more than 1 plane to take out the russian bomber if it lives.

    Yeah, brilliant.  If I did that, and actually put a unit on Gibraltar for the purpose of attacking Z13 in R1, you know what would happen.  The Russian bomber would miss, the German destroyer would hit, and I would have one foolish looking infantry unit on Gibraltar.

    Well, yeah.  And I was thinking, it stops the automatic taking of Gibraltar with an infantry or armor from France G1 (messes with UK NO, and makes Italy’s much easier to get I1 if UK doesn’t take Gibraltar right back)

    So yeah, bid infantry to Gibraltar isn’t the craziest thing in the world… 🙂



  • But with current league rules you cannot bid to gib because it has no starting units …

    I agree, I did qualify my suggestion with:

    @axis_roll:

  • Yep, I see. I think you should be allowed deploy the bid in any territory you had, empty or not. Also in any friendly coastal territory

    That would open up other bid options…why limit them?
    I, however, don’t get to make the league rules

    At home, we have no such limitations.
