Re: Alpha+.1

What is this preoccupation with the Germany threatening Sealion to save the Italian Navy? Germany's most effective landing pattern for Sealion is to threaten it with a huge Navy/Transport buy on G2, right? By then UK1 in the med has already happened and the UK hopefully has bought some bombers or ta...

Re: Alpha+.1

Turn order and cadence are the keys for the axis. A good Axis player cant be turned loose with too much iniative on his side but the Axis are attacking which is more difficult to coordinate at first. America has a similar problem. New players sometimes cant get America into the war at all or just do...

Re: Alpha+.1

In regards to Germany being too slow in Russia, we do not have this problem. My latest game with the 12/15ish set up should end in Axis victory and my loss thanks to a European victory city grab. My fault for not paying attention though. Lets see if I can summerize a 12 round game.... No sealion. Br...

Re: Alpha+.1

Air power vs boots on the ground...... I dunno what the attack value should be for strategic bombers. Our bombers of both kinds played such hell with German infrastructure their existing tanks had trouble moving and getting fuel. The Sherman had its merits but I dunno if in 1944 Shermans were better...

Re: Alpha+.1

All naval units should be next to helpless against tactical and strategic bombers. FDR knew battleships were obsolete. The USA built more Essex class aircraft carriers alone during the war than Battleships. Whats the number 141.... Total carriers vs was it 8 battleships.

Re: Alpha+.1

Krieghund Only two incidences is hardly notable, especially considering that Tirpitz was moored when she was sunk. In reference to these "Tall Boy" attacks and the Fritz X list, they were the easiest lists I could find. Are B-25's considered strategic bombers? They could be built with strafing in mi...

Re: Alpha+.1 Theorycrafting

Low luck makes for weird games. Definitely favors offensive action because I KNOW exactly how many units are needed for each action. That allows me to expand further. Talk about giving an advantage to us chess players who know you can build 47 IPC of units this turn, probably 43 next, then 35 and 30...
