Hi guys, this is my first post on the forums and if this question as already been asked please bear with me.
I also have not worked out all the mechanics of the rule so I was maybe hoping that some of you more experienced players could help me out.
Historically, the Soviet Union does not declare war on Japan until August 1945, after the US/UK did the heavy lifting in the Pacific as well as after the dropping of the atomic bombs. Yeah and that whole march to Berlin thing…
So, to simulate this I was thinking that the USSR could not attack Japan until Turn 5 or 6?
If Russia attacks earlier, then they would have to pay a penalty of 10 IPCs.
Furthermore, Japan would also have to pay an IPC penalty if they attack USSR prior to Turn X.
I don’t think that this rule would unbalance the game or anything, but I was wondering what you guys thought.
