I have played alot of games as the allies recently and in almost every single game, I have lost Egypt at a G2 attack. In one game (the latest game I played), I bought a factory on UK1 and hoped to change that around. I still had to invest a TON in order for Egypt to hold for the second round and I quickly realized that even though I managed to hold of Egypt, the cost was to great.
It simply feels like the game is completely lost when Germany takes Egypt at the second round. From my perspective, there seems to be an extremely important triangle in the game (Egypt, Moscow, India) that the allies REALLY need to hold, if they lose one of these parts of the triangle, the game is over. While when playing as the allies, the only thing I really try to do is defend these points, which sooner or later will break.
