Before you know it, every territory will have a Airbase / Minor / Navalbase, There will be more political rules than ever, and victory conditions will be reduced to “play until someone else gives up.”
I couldnt agree with you more.
What do you think about (UT) Texas signing a mult-million dollar deal with ESPN for it’s own television network? I beleive it was 300 million.
I thinks it a matter of time before most teams realize just how much money is out there for grabs. This will change college football.
This is the first I’ve heard of it but it would certainly further explain the departure of Nebraska to the Big Ten and Colorado to the Pac 10. The precedent had been set previously with Notre Dame and NBC. This though would be very different from the perspective of Texas is not an independent and plays in a conference. I’ll have to look into this more sometime this week.
Another cool thing with this game is you can change the sound to War Tapes mode, and it is about as close as you are going to get to being on a battlefield from your living room. Awesome Multi-player, I’m on PS3 too.
It was something I thought was worth testing. An airbase is pricey, but the theory here is to maximize my most potent defensive units to take away Japans more expensive units (Ships). This at the same time forces them to engage the UK and bring the US into the war earlier then they would probably have planned. I think with the airbase there on borneo with the defensive firepower adds up to something like close to 30 die points. Its more of a monkey wrench for the Japan player if his plans were to wait on attacking the allies. Plus I hate using my planes to trade hits with inf and art, when they should be taking down more expensive items like sea vessels.
Also on the subject of Italian POWs: some Italians captured by the British in North Africa ended up being interned in the Orkney Islands, where they were put to work constructing concrete barriers to seal off the eastern entry route into Scapa Flow (the route taken by U47 when it torpedoed the battleship Royal Oak in October 1939). Sometimes, arguments would break out between the Italians and the British personnel supervising the work, and an Army interpreter would be called in to sort out the dispute. After one such altercation, a Navy officer took the interpreter aside and asked him why he had been translating for the Italian man who’d been complaining, saying that, “This fellow can speak English!” The interpreter retorted that the man couldn’t “even speak Italian!” – an answer which no doubt baffled the Navy officer until the prisoner later confided that he’d been speaking in dialect. (“Churchill’s Prisoners: The Italians In Orkney, 1942-1944.” St Margaret’s Hope : Orkney Wireless Museum, 1992.)
Of course everyone has their opinion on the best course of action to proceed with. The Brazilian IC is good but only works to help Africa which in my opinion should be UK’s job to defend. I have never had too much difficulty in stoping Axis advance into Africa with UK blocking just south of Egypt.
So in my opinion US has to tackle Japan as no one else really can, which means buying a fleet in the Pacific. Also they need to help against Germany which is buying a fleet in the Atlantic slowly increasing to prepare for D-Day on Germany.
These tactics have worked for me in previous games.
Dang, there has been numerous times I go into a conflict only wanting to do a little damage and retreat out to save my tanks, because I don’t want them vulnerable in a newly acquired territory. Thanks for the answer.
