Outside of the Aussie fleet, and a usually unviable Indian IC, there isn’t much the allies can do to support the US directly in the Pacific. Where the UK and russia can easily assist the US against Japan is on the mainland.
-have a decent amount of inf in the far east that can be used a couple of different ways
- can pump some inf, etc to china quickly
- can establish flexible zones of control with air
- can stack the Cauc/ Per easy with inf. more importantly, tanks stacked in the Cau create a presence without actually commiting to Japan.
-can unite her fleet with the US at SZ 12 and send all that gear towards Persia/India
-Send fighters to a US carrier and use them in conjunction with the aussie tranny
-Send the bomber to Asia to bomb IC’s/ harrass Jap shipping/use in conjunction with Aussie fleet
In the end, the advantage is still to the axis, but there are some things you can do to help against Japan a little
The problem is that allies cant direct all their energy towards stopping Japan’s outrageous expansion of the mainland. UK and Russia dont have enough options for fighting a second front against Japan. Yes they have some very limited options but not enough to stop Japan from turning into Godzilla.
ok so i have been playing triplea and your right they all want to use that bid system for the allies so u would think there is a bit of an unblance between allies and axis… the few that keep saying it’s dead even are fine with that statement but why is it 95% of other people say its axis that are a bit stronger … ive done my number crunches and ive come to axis 54.324 and allies 45.676 with wins so it came to me in a dream last night all we have to do is place 1 single unit and it will even this very close too 50% and that is a UK sub in sea zone 35!
UK sub in 35 is something Ive seen a few times on TripleA. It slows down japan a little since it stops them from taking east indies first turn (which also means japs dont get that NO). However without the bid in Egypt you can almost certainly expect Germany to pulverize Egypt and Japan move into the mediterranean by Round3. Axis control of the suez with an east indies factory is a very tough situation for allies to beat. I dont think id do the sub bid unless you can also put 1 infantry in Egypt (for a total bid of 9). Bid9 is a pretty big bid but I feel allies are at enough of a disadvantage that they need at least a Bid of 8-9 to balance the game.
There are no official bid rules in TripleA, but most players agree on one unit pr. TT.
There are official bid rules for ladder matches. Its one unit per TT and you can only place units in a TT that has existing units belonging to your country.
