Re: Alpha .2 - AAE40 balance questions

I've also played some alpha+2 with just Europe. I'm in agreeance that the allies have too much in the Europe only version. Russia getting it's global economy is one thing(since it doesn't have to worry about japan attacking it) but the bigger problem is America's economy. I've played at two full gam...

Re: Tanks in AA1940

Heavily, heavily disagree with 3-2-2-6 tanks. No one bought them when 3/2 tanks were priced at 5 points. This nerf is not needed. If anything it costs slightly too much to get a tank force going. There is also the issue that this would hurt germany more then anyone else so balance would need to be r...

Re: Alpha .2

I think the exact opposite. In the theatre level games the US is putting more money into the theatre then they would actually be able to in the global level game if they split spending. I certainly wouldn't give them anymore.

Re: Alpha+.2

My problem with bids is that they are only used for the same units. Infantry(sometimes an artillery). Proper balancing of the game from the get go(no bid) involves making sure the dynamic of air and sea warfare is ideal as well.

Re: Alpha+.2

@Carico67 Again, I don't agree with this "easy sealion". Britain stacks down 9 infantry on it's 1st turn.(I'm assuming G2 sealion, G3 is getting far too late to be worth it) Assuming the German 1 turn wasn't perfect and they lost at least some air/naval then you are looking at a 50/50 chance for sea...

Re: Alpha+.2

Striker; if UK goes full bore at the MED it should gaurantee a VERY high % for GER Sea Lion success. It changes the med dynamic at the expense of its capital. It's not broken, it's a choice. What I think DOES need to be fixed is the NO situation. Axis income levels with allies too easily IMO from w...

Re: Alpha+.2

The dynamic of the Mediterranean still needs to be looked at I think. Even if Germany does *everything* it can for Italy by killing the cruiser of Spain with it's subs, kills the fighter in France, and lands two fighters on the Italian airbase, Britain can still have at least half a chance of killin...

Re: Weak France!

If the UK fleet was made more survivable by increasing france's strength, the best counter might be to buff the Italian fleet's survivability somehow. As it is, even if germany does everything it can to help italy's fleet(kill the spain cruiser, land two fighters in italy airbase) the UK still has a...
