Re: Weak France!

Has anyone done any actual play testing of these ideas? I feel like on this forum people get so caught up in the idea sometimes that it doesn't matter whether it would work or not, people just argue over the idea. Yes I tested the set up in Indochina it would be fine. Maybe subtract a 1 infantry. S...

Re: Weak France!

Well France didn't have these type of forces in FIC. FIC has very minimal forces ( not even close to anything modeled in the game) Actaully the French had an decent air force(Decent for the French anyway) in Indochina and roughly 50,000 men if I remember correctly. They had coastal artillery and ev...

Re: Weak France!

Personally I think France should have a small force in Indo-China but thats a different argument. I put 2 inf. 1 ftr. 1 art. and 1 dd in Indochina along with a naval base. Surprisingly, the French actually contributed a great deal with it and all units except the sea and air units survived almost t...

Re: Weak France!

Exactly. Im not saying give the French an army compareable to Germanys fighting wise, because that is not right. I think like Caractacus said the French should have a penalty. This would then give them a sizeable force on paper, but in retrospect, they are very weak. This also gives them the option ...

Re: Weak France!

I completely agree Imperious Leader. Why do the French have to die every game? When if first read about Europe 1940 I was excited to play as France but most of the time the French can't even do anything. Yes France did die in WW2 but Axis and Allies is indeed a chance to change that. Now Im almost c...

Re: Weak France!

Yes brilliant! This is what Im trying to say. We should have some representation of the line even if the Germans avoided it they should still have to fight it eventually. Imperious Leader do you just think that the French should have your Maginot line rule, or a larger number of equipment as well wi...

Re: Weak France!

Well in the rule book, Larry's introduction says that France is in a state after the Germasns avoided the Maginot and crossed into France. The Fench forces in France are the ones that were not wiped out in the initial attack that happened before the game. I had not seen this originally in the rule b...

Re: Theory Crafting For Alpha.+3

Why dont we just take ANZAC out, and make an individual power called the British Commonwealth, that would be in control of SA, Canada, and Australia/New Zealand. This would solve these problems of British dieing and production ceasing as the commonwealth would just fight on. Though it would be trick...
