Hi all, my first post and I’m just throwing out a tactics question - something I couldn’t find in a cursory search with regard to this edition:
Do you research, and if so, who and when?
I figure the only really sensible time for anyone to invest in research rolls would be US1, full buy (all IPCs worth) of research rolls.
Yes, slightly risky, but if anyone would find it useful, then the US turn 1 would, because your research (if successful) will last you all game (better value for money) and further, it will guide your purchases - if you get heavy or long range bombers, or jet fighters or super subs, then you buy up those and you buy up big, with game changing effect.
Anyone have experience of this in game?
When do people research, and who as?
Everyone else is under pressure turn 1, the US can afford to wait, if only a little.
