Ok I’ve been playing for a while but mostly as UK, (my personal fav) however since I have the most experience of my circle of friends I keep getting saddled with Germany…SIGH. As long as I have to be the evil empire I want to absolutely dominate, and I need your help to do it. Is there a consensus on how to handle G1 and G2 in Africa? Oh and we play without bidding but RR and Two hit BS.
Should I take BS and Trn attack UK sub and land two infantry along with tank and inf into AES. I’ve done this and it’s a victory but the India counterattack seems pretty Standard and usually stalls out Africa for me because UK also launches bomber and Wmed BS at my fleet. As a side strategy I tried building a trn on first turn in central med to keep UK BS off my main fleet, but it just feels like a wast of IPC’s. I also tried killing West Med BS with sub and two fighters but that leaves the US tran and Uk tran to counter attack africa anyway.
should I load 2 inf on trn and take gibralter while killing UK BS, then turn east into africa on next move. If I do this how do I protect the men I have in Africa and score some IPC’s.
3)Keep fleet on central med and dump either tank or 2 inf into africa for attack into AES on G2. If I do this how do I effectively destroy the british fleet. It seems to me that I can get both BS in West Med and North Sea Fleet but that leaves US trn and UK trn and my opponent generally launch one or the other of these on a suicide run to dump a few troops in africa while throwing everything they got at my fleet.
4)My least favorite and I’ve never done this although I did see it tried to disatrous effect. G1 Build IC in Libya or Algeria and go from there.
Anyway thanks for making it all the way through that post, I’m sure there’s something really obvious that I’m missing about German strategy but since I can’t see it I would appreciate the help.
