I'd say 10... Subs and Destroyers are not equal :D ....

i like it, there are many things that can happen with this...subs now have really nice abilities, and destroys are a nice effective counter...i like the fact that it seems to have some NOVA flavor...

I think the cost of DDs needs to be reduced, but it depends on how sub/DD interaction ends up working. 8 is a good starting point.

Guerrilla - I think, on second thought, I agree with your “10”
Krieg – yeah, there you go… I made it 8 because I wanted it to be the Infantry of the oceans but I agree with Guerrilla. It should cost a bit more than a sub.

I dont agree. I want Destroyers to be the infantry of the oceans. Id make them at 6 IP but attack at lower values. WE need naval fodder too especally if subs are not to be used as fodder. The costs should be different to each nation anyway. say destroyers are at 2/2/2 while subs are 3/3/2. Im working on a new unit value chart anyway . Not sure bout this.
We really need an Axis and Allies World War one game so i can play that on August 1st, 2014.

This deserves more thought. I'm also thinking in two complete opposing directions

1. Make ships cheap
2. Make ships a bit more expensive.

In any case I can't bring myself to make DD's cheaper than subs.
