I’ve been lurking in this thread really hoping someone is going to figure out how to make this game more fun. One of the big issues, to me, is that Russia and Britain are simply in survival mode hoping America will come to the rescue. Buying inf/art or inf/arm as Russia, inf/art/fig as Britain every single time is just boring. Russia pretty much has no real fun value. Sit in the middle and get squeezed while it watches its units and territories disappear.
My friends and I have always wondered why Russia even has AC/DD/BB units included as they are never purchased.
Maybe because of the hit point model, there just isn’t much that can be done. I know submarines have been changed yet how is it that an infantry division can take down a bomber or fighter? Or a bomber have a 66% chance of taking down a fighter?
I play real time strategy games, like Starcraft, which use a rock/paper/scissors model. The problem is that the Axis are the rock and Allies are the scissors and just get pounded.
I like the KJF idea however Germany starts out so strong that Britain/Russia have trouble containing it. One of the issues is that while the two Allied forces can be used to slow the advance, they offer no real combined counter as a stack of 10 Rus inf/5 Bri fig has no attack ability. A combined attack would sure seem to help.
