RE: League General Discussion Thread
The BM advocates seem adamant that almost the entire League and certainly the top players prefer BM. Is it really such a big deal then if OOB is default? It’s not like the playoff top dogs would ever want to play OOB so I don’t see the issue.
I’m a low-tier new Leaguer but for the record I agree with Gamer.
RE: Global 2nd edition Q+A ( AAG40.2)
Romania, Norway, and the Netherlands are not Powers(rule term). China is. That’s the difference.
I dont see the relevance to being able to build a major factory there or not. Germany never owned Norway. In fact, they conquered it right before the game started.
Manchuria has a government for years that has favored the Japanese. At least as much as the Romanian government “favored” Germany. Logically, you should be able to build a major ic there.
If China takes it, burn down the ic.
“Power” is relevant. Should the player controlling and representing China be totally OK if US captures Shantung/Manchuria instead of liberating it? Would the Chinese people be happy with that? Or does China consider that rightful Chinese land.
There’s no player representing Norwegian/Romanian/Dutch interests.
If your question is why must the territory be originally controlled by your Power to make a major factory, it’s because US can make 10 tanks per turn in Norway without it.
So, Manchuria is originally Chinese because an Ally can liberate, but not capture it and that makes sense. Why can’t Japan build the major there anyway? because of game fairness shown in norway factory example, rule states it must be originally yours.
RE: 1st TT MajikAndrew (X) vs RoodWitt (L +48) OOB
Hello. Would say I’m happy to be here but this is a right mess I’ve been tossed to!
Intercept Japan? I might not get back to it until tonight US time so no rush.
RE: ANZAC planes landing in Dutch territories (Java/Sumatra) on same turn they were taken by ANZAC
That is someone’s “made up” FAQ. We are like attorneys in our group. If its not in the rule book, it is either not permitted or permitted depending on the circumstance!!!
That’s a really odd stance to take. Andrew’s link is to Gamerman’s thread, who has the tag “Official Answers”. That means ->“This group of individuals provide answers to the game that should be considered the official out of the box rules answers.”
I don’t know the exact relationship of this site’s top dogs but I know they have frequently corresponded with Larry Harris over the years.
It is not just “someone’s” made-up FAQ. The answers and clarifications can be considered an addendum to the G40 2E rule books.
It’s fine if you want to play lawyers and pause the game with your group to scour the rule book to find answers that may or may not be there but the users of these forums recognize the legitimacy of official answers.
It’s a rather large rule book; you really think Larry would either be perfect or not allow clarifications on what should have been added?
