Umm, capitals were historically the primary objective. Also, if you’re able to capture a capital other than France, 99% of the time, you’re going to win anyway. The ipc’s represent the purchasing power lost by the collapse of the government.
That’s all well and good, but that doesn’t change the fact that it makes the game stale and repetitive.
repetetive? If you don’t want Moscow, you don’t have to go for it. You can have Japan invade Australia and Hawaii instead.
Sure, and I could invade Brazil with Japan too :roll:
It’s repetitive because it is the optimal strategy. Sure, if you want to play sub-optimally you can do all kinds of stuff. But if you don’t care about winning why are you playing the game? Game systems don’t work unless all players buy into the goals of the game.
