I think with those changes the Allies win easily. The US would dominate the Pacific and the Japanese probably wouldn’t really start getting active in Asia until trn 5, and thats if they can even get active in Asia.

RE: G1 naval build?
If the Italian fleet is off the coast of Egypt the UKs CA and DD cannot attack it anyway. I like to use the German transport to take out Jordan on G1. Then I1 use all resources to hit Egypt. You get 3 bombardments, likely hitting 2. If they miss you are in trouble though. It’s a risk I take because you get the 3 bombardments instead of a G1 attack on Egypt.
You only get 2 bombardments, you can’t have more bombardments than landing units and since there is only 1 Italian transport that leaves you with at most 2 shots.
RE: Egypt SZ 12 and the Med
Has anyone tried to take out all the UK ships?
Sz 2 - bb, trn vs. 1 sub, 1 ftr, 1 bom
Sz 9 - dd, trn vs. 1 sub
Sz 12 - dd, ca vs. 2 ftrs
You can still take out the Sz 6 ship and I don’t think this messes up Egy, if you were going to do that and sz 2 anyway. Obviously sz 9 and 12 are a bit dicey but you could really cripple the UK interms of transporting units for a rd or 2. Just wondering if anyone has seen this.
Assuming you get good dice
RE: Map for 1941 axis strategy
The word is pwn…or the past tense where it originally appeared…pwned. It orginated from the game Warcraft When you lost to the computer in a multiplayer game on a certain map the screen said so and so was pwned. It was a mispelling that has lead to its current use.
And there’s your gaming language lesson of the day :lol:
RE: Why the Allies have the upper hand
The Japanese monster is too much for the Americans to handle. The japanese navy is a juggernaught with 3 carriers and 6 planes, a BB and other assorted goodies. Sure the US can toss 40 or so IPCs at the Pacific but Japan has such a head start on a Navy AND has a mountain of money to keep building a navy equal to or greater than the American Navy.
RE: Bombardment question
I’m confused by what you mean.
But even if the attacker is on the shore or the defender is on the shore is not important in terms of how a battleship does a bombardment. The guns on a battleship are huge and they blow the crap out of the area. They can also shoot at long ranges.
In guadalcanal you don’t even need to have an amphibous assault to fire on land units. Ignoring game balance this makes sense because those ships can park offshore and just rain down destruction on anything within range.
RE: LL opponent needed
Sounds good. Ive never used the forums before but Im sure I’ll catch on quickly.
Ill have the first move up within the next hour. I just need to get used to using Abattlemap and the forum.
As for the thread title…
