@ericb Ive been wasting them, thanks! I was leaving them in place. Used this on a game I just won and I likely got 3 fighter kills I would not have otherwise in cluding (critically!) 2 early ones,
@aardvarkpepper Hi Aardvark and thanks! I did notice something in a recent Axis game I won, which was like looking in a mirror and seeing my own mistakes. Floating those starting spendy boats around as USA and making Japan spend has a little use, but doing so with only 1 transport, in retrospect is not a great idea. At all. They still get wins on land while I tote 2 units around maybe nicking an island or two. I’m pretty sure I won’t be doing this anymore!
@marineiguana Yes well you’re definitely better at the game than I by far, and obviously understand the pathings and such way better than me. 90% in both means you’ve got it down. But after reading on some other parts of the forum, if it’s so balanced, why do GenCon games have a bid system for the allies to get extra help? I’ll admit, maybe as a noob I just do better having a load of troops and relative safety early on as I prefer inf/art in great big gobs over fancy schmancy battleships/tanks/bombers etc. At sea I even prefer subs due to cheapness. Easier to make impactful stacks, at least so far.
Anyway, genuine thanks to everyone, will keep stabbing at it diligently!
Hi guys, won’t give up the ghost but still almost always allies when joining no pref, and still losing except to players making crazy bad mistakes. Have read many strat posts last few days, we’ll see how it goes on Wood level.
Anyone know if the devs are going to do anything about it? Total noob here been playing a few weeks is all, but when trying ranked games, I get Allies 90% of the time because I always choose ‘no preference’. I’m sure you all know why that happens!
Ger is loaded and super safe. Even with horrific rolls early it can overcome, and the Pacific pathing maze (and lack of ability to work in tandem with Carriers and transports) means Japan can all but ignore US/UK after destroying the UK sacrificial lambs at sea and get to the serious business of boots (or treads) on the ground’
Is this ever going to be addressed does anyone know?
