Is acceptable to post a link to your own AAR here? Or is it by referral only? But for as much time as I've spent on the darn thing, somebody better read it! :^)
Feinder(A) v Bilbow(J) CHS - The winds of war are constantly changing
Players: Bilbow [Jap.] vs. Feinder [Allies]
Perspective: (Mostly) Allied (AAR is by Feinder), but AAR is open to both players.
Map Scen: CHS Scen 156 (no mods for flak or CAP), but includes Soviet Fleet.
Settings: PDU on, 2 day turns, 1st turn surprise, 1 port strike anywhere (Manila chosen)
House Rules: See thread, most crucial are no more than 50x AFsize AC, and addl stacking limits on 4e bombers (these are working very well).
Current game date: Mid to Late June 43.
Comments: IMO, Bilbow and I are extremely well matched (hence the title). A successful early Allied ambush of Japanese CVs (in about 04-42), was reversed by an even greater IJN CV victory in 09-42. Also, the Japanese have secured Northern Australia as far south as Daly Waters. Beginning Spring 43 however, the Allies have begun to press Japan on all fronts, initiating a war of attrition. Allied offensives grind forward in Burma, New Guinea, and the Gilberts, and are met by stiff resistance. The war has been a constant seqence of lunge-parry-reposte. My own predilection for maps is quite evident, as each post is a map of the action, and does not actually contain combat.txt reports. At this point, I try to do monthly updates in each theater (China, Burma, Oz, SWPac, SoPac, NoPac).
