Being an experienced player (s) of Axis & Allies, I purchased AAE recently.
From my experience of AA, Germany always gets beaten by the Allies due to the simple fact that the Allies has more turns to act upon. (Being able to identify where the IPC’s are spent best…more often)
Win or Loss is solely depending on Allied players ability to identify German weak spots, or where Germany gambles on holding aginst the odds with thin resources.
Initial screening of strategies for Axis in AAE all favour an all out assault on Russia, with russia defense pouring in from US and UK as only way of holding out. It all seems like if Axis are not very well advanced into Russia by turn 4-5 its all over for them (Implying an automatic surrender of control of Africa and Middle East.) (At least only giving it a half hearted effort)
Anyone who has won Axis with a more balanced approach from Germany?
Securing Africa and middle East? Naturally, more resources would be needed to block Allies at Gibraltar, etc… Instead of buying tanks…
Being inexperienced AAE player, I’m also a bit concerned about artillery tactics vs tank tactics. Everyone seems to favor tanks for the Axis…?
