Re: Weak France!

IL, How would you compensate Germany if you buffed France how you wanted to? as of Alpha .2 the game seems to have reached a relatively balanced state. If France was made stronger how would you compensate the axis to ensure a 50/50% chance of victory for either side is achieved, which I'm assuming i...

Re: After Action Reports (Europe)

Tested Alpha 2 a short while ago(on just the europe board) Turn 1: Germany opened with a carrier+2 transport buy. Killed off half of the british fleet(made sure to kill cruiser off spain and half the fleet off of britain, but failed at killing canadian transport.) Paris was also captures and Normand...

Re: Alpha+.2

Wow, when did the turn order change? What was the justification for bumping the US so far up? Hope to get a chance to test the setup.

Re: 1942 map

The islands of Formosa and Iceland were added to the map. To be honest I don't think they affect the game any.

Re: So hard to win as Germans

I think it is significantly harder for germans to win in Europe only, either OOB or with the Alpha +1 set up for the fact that 75% of the US economy from global is dedicating itself towards Germany from the start. To be honest the Russians suffer slightly as well but there is a noticeable net gain f...

Re: Alpha+.1

I don't get why people see the cruiser as so bad. Its more cost effective then the battleship for straight up naval fights and bombardment(and is only beaten by subs on the offensive role or destroyers on the defensive.). The battleship is only "worth it" if it survives a battle or two of soaking up...

Re: Alpha+.1

I'm not so sure about seriously redoing bomber rules. I think it goes beyond the scope of what alpha was intended for (balance mainly through setup changes, change core rules little as possible). Changing bomber rules like you some of you are suggesting would require a fair amount of play testing ju...

Re: Alpha+.1

Heres my say on the "Russians falling back from border before war declared" issue. In short, leave it as it is. Why? Lets look at Italy for example, if we forced them to suffer the same events that happened in history then the British would wipe out a chunk of their navy in the taranto raid and stal...
