Has anyone ever tried a strategy where you go roughly 1/3 income towards Japan and 2/3 income towards Germany? This would probably be ideal if Pearl went bad or didn’t go at all. I’ve always wanted to try this, but haven’t got the chance yet.

RE: Japan Strategy
I like that Brit opening a lot and have been thinking lately how to counter that. I’m having a hard time. My biggest concern is that the U.S. will split its resources 1/3 Japan, 2/3 Germany and then I’ll have to deal with that. What are your feelings on this possibility? I’ve always wanted to try it out but never got the chance. How successful can the two pronged, 2/3 Germany, 1/3 Japan, approach be?
RE: Russian Gambit
Ok, everybody says this crazy russian move sucks because you lose a fighter. I say not necessarily. What if…
3 inf Kar, 1fig Kar, and 1 arm Arch attack EE.
3 inf, 1art, 1arm Cau, 1 fig Rus, and possibly 1arm Russa attack Ukr
3inf Arh, 3 inf, 1(2)arm, 1art Rus attack WRus
Now the odds for winning all these battles aren’t great:
EE: about 52% chance things working out for you
Ukr: about a 64% chance of things working out
WRus: 91% chance of things working out
Sure all these battles are risky, but if EE or Ukr start off bad just back out. While the “Russian Gambit” is inherently risky, the two fighters can still be saved.
Alll though your ability to start trading territories could be VERY hurt if these battles go wrong, but thats war.
RE: Tired of KJF
And you are still down economy, and have achieved nothing extra in terms of destroying Allied forces in Asia, just the same kills that are usually made.
I agree. In fact, I very much like this move you made and will probably try it out very soon!!! :evil:
However, I was just saying that you can hit both fleets successfully and have a minor air force.
RE: Tired of KJF
How about a “Frack with Japan” strat…
India fleet to SZ59 (killing the TRN)
India + FIG takes out FIC (killing a FIG)
SZ40 to SZ45 to try to take out the SUB.
Japan has a choice to make…
Pearl or SZ59.Â Doing both leaves Japan minus their fleet and AF.
Couldn’t Japan just do a pearl light? Really light: 1 des, 2 fig, 1 bom (assuming sub is sunk, other wise he’d join). Assuming they they lose a Des and a fig then send in 1AC, 1 BB, 1trn, 2 fig to SZ59 where they’ll pry lose 1 fig and 1trn. The SZ60 BB could join a battle but I assumed he’d hang with the carrier at wake to protect it from a counter. I suppose including the FIC you’re out 3 fig, but you did manage to take out both fleets and only lose 2fig, 1trn and 1des and pry expecting to lose the des and fig anyways.
Though I will admit if one of the battles goes against them they will be hurting.
USA - Russia
I’ve been looking around the forums for a bit now and I haven’t found too much stuff on the Allies/U.S. Everyone seems to like the idea of conquering the world!
Anyways, I was wondering if anybody has tried or thought about building PAC fleet, but using them to transport troops from alaska to russia. I thought about maybe trying this option. Though haven’t put too much energy into this idea. What do you guys think? Has anybody tried it?
