I’m going to be playing some global with the updated rules on the weekend. It’ll be my first time playing alpha+ and my first time playing global US. I played 4 games of global OOB and we had some bad US players and some OK US players (don’t have a lot of mates with A&A experience) so I still don’t know what a good US opening looks like. What kind of strategies should I consider? How much is a good split for KIF or KJF? What should I generally buy on turn 1? How many transports is enough? What ships in general to purchase when throwing a fleet together? I’m worried that Japan will pick up 6 victory cities if I go KIF, but I also have no idea what to expect or even generally how to go about killing Japan efficiently in a KJF. Thoughts?
