Re: Alpha +3

Larry, some thoughts from a purely athesteic stand point A rule that says the US treats all major complexes as minors before war is declared, so we dont have to change out the tokens when they are at war. Side effect, no more west coast upgrade to major on US 1 to go Japan 1st. Reduce the paris fac...

I'd rather have the tac back.

3. Change Germany's Caucasus NO to "5 IPCs if an Axis power controls Caucasus. Theme: Control of vital Soviet oil production" or allow Italy to also collect. There's no reason that I can see to shut Italy out here.

Re: Alpha +3

Japan has tested the new non-aggression rule. Russia stacked Amur with all troops so I decided the new AA gun rule made it worth attacking with everything. I brought in all available planes. I did not bring in ships for offshores, and was able to also take Siberia with the second transport. The atta...

Re: Alpha+3 & the Med

Hardly suicide, Oakshield. It's 4 ftrs and a tac vs. 3 ftr, dst, csr. And that's assuming Germany puts the planes there and scrambles. Slight edge only to Italy. UK easily takes it otherwise. Bring in the cruiser and UK has much better odds despite the sub. Spread your ships and air how you like in ...

Re: Alpha+3 & the Med

This change seems to make it easier for the UK. You get to take out a transport and destroyer on the way to Gibraltar. OR If the cruiser is still around, use that to kill the destroyer in 96, and commit 3 ftrs and 1 tac to 97, bringing your choice of ships along depending on the air base defenders. ...

Re: Alpha +3

What I think I like so far: 1. Mongolia entering the war. I'm glad those printed inf numbers will get some use finally. I would though ease the restrictions for how they enter. It's too easy for Japan to circumvent. At the same time, I would give Japan something. Mongolia feels threatened and joins ...
