I’m looking for an opponent! I’d like it to be a league game. If you like to play the Allies, it would be perfect.

RE: Germany first buy: 4 fighters
Thanks for the input guys. My oponent should really have landed in Africa with UK on the first turn.
I also thought that sending a Russian fighter in Anglo Egypt was a big mistake made by my oponent, so was it to not leave Leningrad completly empty.
My bad I said 1 inf and one art from Africa but of course it was 1 tank and 1 inf. I also forgot to say that my two subs in the baltic were moved in seazone 7. I knew my navy was going to be destroyed, but it forced my oponent to split his airforce, and I saved a sub and killed one fighter with my transport/dest fleet.
I guess my oponent did not play really well with Russia because even thought I had few land units on the Russian front, my fighters always allowed me to trade territories and to keep UK and US navy at bay for a while.
Now I have to explain what were, in my opinion the advantages of such a move. UK and USA had to buy much more navy to protect their transports, so even thought my russian front was some kind of weak, Germany was almost never threatened, and the Allies coult not build any fleet in the Pacific. On UK1, my oponent send his Indian SZ Fighter to destroy my tank in Anglo-Egypt along with the Transjordan inf. He succeded, but my lonely Japan transport stayed alive, so I only had to buy one on J1 and could already build a factory in Mandchuria. On J1 I took China and Buryatia. Two turn later a factory was build in French Indochina, and another one in India a turn later.
RE: Germany first buy: 4 fighters
However, I played this strategy last game against a guy who beats me 2 times out of 3 and I crushed him hard. It looks like you underestimate the power of 10 fighters and 1 bomber against the starting weak fleat of the allies.
Anyway anyone has real strategy to counter that instead of saying that Germany would not have enough land unit?
Germany first buy: 4 fighters
Let’s say the axis start with a 7 bid, which is 1 ART and 1 INF in Ukraine.
Generally, Russia takes strongly West Russia and leaves Leningrad pretty openend. One russian fighter doesn’t fight and goes to Anglo Egypt.
My Germany first buy is 4 fighters.
Combat are: Leningrad strongly, since there is almost nothing there to defend it. The three infantries in Norway stay in Norway.
My sub in SZ8 goes fort the english battleship in the Med, so do my norway, france, germany and balkan fighters. I send the two others fighters in anglo egypt with my bomber, plus the art and inf that where already in Africa and I transport an inf and a tank from Italy. My battleship takes the english destroyer. Everything goes perfectly fine for me, Anglo Egypt is taken with a tank and I have zero planes lost.
HOW do you counter that?
Jazz and rock on!
RE: Newbie Experiences!
I always played Germany when we began to play: my strat was to only buy tanks, and if uk and usa were pressing too hard after some round, I built subs and… more tanks!
By that time, Russia was buying bombers and tanks, UK was going all out on Ic and destroyer (hey, Germany had subs), and Japan was only fighting USA on the water.
We were always screwed up with planes when there were islands and AC…
RE: List of standard acronyms…noob confused by IPC, IC, FIG, KJF, etc...
Here is my noob question: why CV for an aircraft carrier?
My main language is french. When I was younger and didn’t speak english, i found it very funny to see english people talking french and not using the proper genre for a noun.
To me it was so “normal” that a chair was femenine gender when a boat was a male…
Now, I realise how strange it is to give a gener to nouns. I guess it’s because we are french :roll:
