Don’t hit egypt till G2? Why would you wait? That is money, just like in the old revised it always goes on round 1.
Some are waiting because, unlike the old revised, there are NO German fighters in range of Egypt on G1. In old revised Germany had one or two fighters in range, depending on if the Ukraine fighter survived R1. (Which is one reason why in old revised I made it a point to hit Ukraine on R1. This is a different game though).
Also I beleive the UK has one more unit in Egypt in this version as compared to old Revised.
So the BEST attack Germany can do to Egypt on G1 is 2 Inf 2 Tanks 1 Bomber : 5 count, 12 oPunch
Vs. 1 Inf 1 Art 1 Tank 1 Figher: 4 count, 11 dPunch
Yes Germany is favored but it is not a lock to win, so some players are waiting until G2 to hit Egypt hoping to smash it with overwhelming force, or intimidating UK into abandoning it UK1. Though it is sounding like a UK1 pre-emptive strike on Libya may throw a monkey wrench into that plan.
