I have been allies in 2 games where G went west and AH went east.
In both, my R consolidated its forces and pushed AH back, while G failed to take Paris in the face of F, GB & (eventually) US opposition.
I mention it as it did happen, but I would not draw too many conclusions Duck. In fact I look forward to trying it myself when I play axis next.
I was thinking about destroying the British fleet in Germany’s first turn with everything I’ve got, so the Brits can’t send troops to the continent.
It’s a gamble, but if I pull it off I only need to face France. The UK might get scared and spend IPC’s on rebuilding its fleet, which will also relieve the Ottomans.
Maybe I can send just enough troops to the eastern front to keep Poland contested together with the Austro-Hungarians, so I don’t lose Prussia’s IPC’s?
I believe the biggest problem as wove100 said is Austria-Hungary. They will have to deal with Italy and a stronger Russian player.
I’ll probably have to balance between sending just enough units to Venice to keep it contested and attacking Russia together with the Ottomans.
Does this sound reasonable?
