Well, I have no worries about anyone taking american provinces. I usually have a few points left over to atleast leave enough troops to spread to stop a one transport attack from sneaking in … But … You’re blind if you don’t see a japanses d-day hitting the US. stop bomber production for one turn and build some infantry/tanks. Plus I always shift most my troops to alaska in wait of the landing on eastern russia. I would also welcome a japanese attack on US soil because that means that’s a huge diversion of funds from harassing russia and maintaining asia.
Maybe i’m wrong here but unless germany gets good rolls it’s hard to keep and maintain it’s fighters. especially if they are doing lots of offensive. Same thing for japan. I’ve done the 1 infantry many planes attack for japan and it’s expensive as hell and leaves no room for an attack on the US. I mean … it’s possible to attack the US but what’s the point unless you’ve got something big enough to attack and hold provinces in the US. A smart US player should be able to see any kind of real attack coming and be ready for it.
I dunno though. I consider myself an A&A rookie because I never get to play with actual people, hehe. But I just believe I could stop a quick economic victory. As britain I like to build a factory in southern africa on UK1 and pump out tanks. If germany is able to take and hold karelia and africa all the while stopping 2 tanks per turn from the UK in s africa and a few troops every now and then from the US in africa and bombing runs that only get worse everyturn also from the US i’d like to see the strategy and try it out myself.
The only time i’ve seen a quick eco victory for the axis is when I controlled both myself against the computer, heh. The computer isn’t so good at thinking many turns in advance other than that it must build units and take countries.
