RE: Naval Units: what is worth buying?
CVs seems a powerful choice if you stack the with fighters, but once the fighters are gone…
…you buy 2 more for only 20ipcs and get 2x 3/4units instead of spending 24 and getting 2x 3/3 units which cant help out on the land after the sea is clear.
The AC doesnt just ‘seem’ to be a powerful choice in my mind.
RE: Avoid China
So far by the accounts of people(s) that have played the game and are not just speculating, it looks like Japans intial low income dictates that they make bigger gains in the IPC deptarment, thus not to attack China.
The investment of troops and supplies and the meager gains from doing so at 1 IPC each TT look like they might have juicier targets. Then when finally you taken care of the targets in the Pacific etc. that get you gains thru NO’s you might consider coming back to China, but by then they might have enough Inf to discourage a Japanese player - the next logical step of thinking asks should you even bother when they cant even attack you anyways… ?

RE: Unit abilities
I would also add that countries that can afford such an investment, should probably make it. I think its close that they are relatively identical purchases for your money, but if you only make 30ipcs its not smart to spend 20 of it on one unit.
I think of it as the same level of purchase, the BB is for the powerhouses, and the Cruiser is for Italy and the UK etc…
RE: Avoid China
Im sure at some point Ill be interested enough to see how avoiding china affects the game, for better or for worse. :?
The one thing Im thinking, can China take back HongKong and it will revert to UK control? If that is the case, I suppose the UK could buy a factory there after china has reinforced it with a dumpload of inf. making it a pretty nice fortress…
It all depends on the starting setup, if china is too well fortified, the ‘avoid china’ strat will be more likely, if they are weak like you guys have seen with the unofficial setup, then taking them out asap will be the better way to go. Its all speculation at this point…
Anyone think there might come a time when a strategy to avoid China completely may dominate? I havent read the NOs for Japan in awhile, Im sure this might stop them from grabbing +5ipcs… but from what I can tell China cannot attack any TTs that werent originally hers to begin with, so let them build up 4 infantry per round, who cares if you never intend to attack. Instead you can use those units that wouldve been bogged down there to invade india instead. Those chinese TTs are only worth 1ipc each anyways. I suppose someone will say the VC is important in there… hmmm.
