Red Prince -> RE: MWiF Global War Hot-Seat (AAR) (2/23/2012 5:31:04 PM)

Moving on to Axis Impulse #5 of N/D '41, I thought I'd show you how few Neutral Minors remain on the map. In fact, only 27 remain. Of these, two (Faeroes and Crete) were previously controlled territories of other minors that were completely conquered by the Axis (Denmark and Greece). 17 more are on the "Americas" map, and only 8 Neutral Minors remain on the European, Asian, and African maps. This truly is a World in Flames.

The CW bid for Cape St. Vincent did force the Italians to take something other than a Land Action this impulse. They settled on a Naval Action, and they're going to try to clear the CW out of that sea area again. They'll also use the opportunity to move a few troops across the Med and set up an invasion of the Balaeric Islands that is long overdue.

Germany is going to continue with Land Actions, of course, and they're also going to send Rommel back to the Eastern Front to help Mannerheim maintain supply in this lousy weather.

As for the Japanese, now that Burma is cleaned up, they can take a full Naval Action to move more troops to India and add defenders to the outer rim of their sphere of influence. They might also try to set up a few more invasions with divisions, just to be a pain for the Allies. The ports in the Gilbert Islands and the Ellice Islands can be cut off from supply for an impulse, at least, which makes for automatic invasions -- unless the USA can re-establish supply and/or drive away the ships carrying the divisions before the next Axis impulse.

I'll probably get around to some of this today, but it may be tomorrow before I post the results.

What is the Italian objective in the Cape St. Vincent? Why attack a CW fleet using the Italian navy at sea at this point? Or is that fleet capable of doing a port attack on the Italians (there should be FTR cover on the Italian fleet in port)? Is there an invasion force with this CW fleet or TRS? If not: it might be better to ignore them for the moment.
You don't want to go into a war of attrittion with the CW/US fleet, except when there is something to gain for the Axis. Gains are the probable killing of US/CW TRS and especially AMPH, which are the most important naval units IMHO. If there isn't an invasion force on that fleet, ignore it, since it cannot do a lot of harm. It is only there to kill the Italian navy in the first place.

Hmm. Been a week since Aaron posted anything. Hope all is well for him.

That isn't good news at all...




Klydon -> RE: MWiF Global War Hot-Seat (AAR) (3/3/2012 3:15:05 PM)

I was wondering if that was the case. [:(]

Hope you get better soon Aaron.

While it was too bad this AAR did not get past 1941 due to Aaron's health issues, it was very enjoyable, and if any beta tester had the time & inclination I'd suggest a similar AAR/stress test combo be undertaken.

(Were I a beta tester, I'd consider doing such a thing myself, though my laptop, large screen though it may have, would produce rather unsatisfactory screenshots.)

Just in case he is able to read this, I would like to thank Aaron "Red Prince" his work in writing this AAR, which I am finding a fascinating reading, full of insights and infinitely helpful.

I would also like to thank all of those who made additional comments.

Reading those posts and seeing the screenshots leave me a mixed feeling. A little bit of healthy envy for those that have had the chance to play the game...but, on the other side, the game seems to be so...so....so.... completed (one year ago) that one cannot avoid the conclusion that its release must not be very far away in the future.




Shannon V. OKeets -> RE: MWiF Global War Hot-Seat (AAR) (11/7/2013 8:09:31 PM)

Erik,

Here is another AAR to be moved to the sub-forum on same.




Red Prince -> RE: MWiF Global War Hot-Seat (AAR) (11/15/2013 4:49:08 PM)

Folks, I want to thank you all for the positive feedback, as well as the positive thoughts (those good vibes got caught in the Maine snows, I'm afraid, brian brian). I had an absolute blast running this AAR/stress test . . . the good news is that the game seemed to hold up well, as you can all now see. It outlasted me, anyway . . .

I'm back, to some degree, and working on random things as time permits. Sadly, I no longer have the time to put together an AAR like this, but I expect you'll be seeing others showing up now that the game has been released.

To everyone, happy gaming! It's been a long time coming, and it's been a very exciting week.

-Aaron

I was a little worried I stressed you out TOO much, good to hear from you. I know you contributed a lot to this project when you could, THANKS!

Americans invading Ireland? What is that?

Why not? You can do these kind of things in MWIF...

If you grab Ireland, you've got more room for the build up of units to attack mainland Europe.

Original strategy but isn't there an option for USA to occupy northern ireland too? I will check this AAR for time to time, thank you [:)]
