Thanks for the input and like I said its a good option in certain situations. I played my friend and he put an IC on EI and I had a KGF and I took Russia to Berlin because it took Japan way to long to get to Moscow.

A Wild Japan Strategy
I’ve been playing a lot of games recently with some friends all of us are experienced players. We recently tried using some of the national advantages which I recommend especially when you are playing with the same group of people. Each country rolled for two advantages and the UK got the extra Industrial Complex and put it on India, well they put everything they could into it. To counter me and my friend decided to build an IC in the East Indies and it ended up being a dominating strategy. Listen before you call me crazy here are some things we discovered.
-You are safe from british attack once their fleet is easily destroyed
-You can build four units instead of three
-Your units w/ transports can get to india, middle east, and africa
-It will confuse and annoy the heck out of your opponent(and afterward they will tell you what a crazy but amazing move it was).
This strategy would only be useful if India had an IC before Japan could put one on French Indo. I’m new to this board so maybe this has been done but let me know what you all think and how you would counter it.
