I was just wondering how many folks out there have finished a full game start to finish? How long did it take you both in game time and IRL? Turns per day? AI or human opponent?

Presently 2/44, Big B 1.4. Still a competitive game although the Allies strength is going. Japanese still making gains in northern China taking Honan and Sian over the past few months. Allies have cleared the Marshalls (leaving heavily fortified Kwajalein and Maeolap to rot on the vine), have retaken all of Burma, and have landed on Timor. Kamikaze's have appeared in the last few weeks

Edit: game started mid-March 2008

PBEM, 11/15/44 and counting, it's taken almost 2 years of Real Life Time. That's the furthest.

I only played one AI game, and that ended with Auto-Victory 1/1/44

I was not lucky one on opponents ... one game in 4/42 and the other hand at 8/42. Both quit without a word

I am in March of 43 with a PBEM opponent. We started June of 2009 and usually get two turns a day. Unless something drastic happens to one of us, I expect the game to go to the finish.

Played through two Big B's.  Both ended with a point victory in January, 1945.  Each took about 8 months out of my wife's life.

All games are a lightly modded Vanilla (Ventura's get extra range, USN Blimps as a variety of Patrol Aircraft, B-32's, P-80's, Bearcats, C-82 Packets available in 1945/46, C-54 available earlier, more US cruisers & carriers in late 1945 reinforcement queue, including USS Midway, lots of AR's added to Allied OOB to cover the massive floating drydock assets that the US deployed. initial US divisions in Philippines and Hawaii are Springfield armed, but mainland troops and improved US Army squads immediately available in 12/41 with M1 Garand firepower for reinforcements, Lahaina Roads an excellent potential harbor, Central Pacific atolls with large lagoons get better potential port ratings)

One Allies vs. Japanese AI, Autovictory in late 1943, played on to early 1944 just for kicks about 8 months IRL.
One Japanese vs. Allied AI, Called in late 1942 after conquering China and India and sinking an awful lot of the USN, about 3+ months IRL. 
Current game is only one month old IRL, March, 1942 and plan to flip - control the Japanese until July to September, 1942 and have an autovictory in hand, then switch to Allied player and grind it out as long as it takes. That way I get the best of both worlds as far as headlong offense goes. I think the Japanese will hold north China, historical line + Port Moresby from Burma to the Solomons, and have Baker and Hawaiian Islands in the Central Pacific.  The Rising Sun flies from the old fort at Lahaina, but Pearl is still holding out.

I've played thru the stock campaign game as the allies twice vs AI, and I'm into march-43 my third time around. First two games took about 3 years total to finish.. This is my last game vs the AI, I figure I've rode that horse to death!  Will go pbem sometime after AE comes out. I'm probably just an average player at best, but very patient and like to finish what I start. So hopefully I can find an opponent to go the distance when the time comes.

Paul Layne and I played through March 1945 and it took two years.

In our recently concluded Forlorn Hopes Campaign, Dan and I played right to the edge of 1945 in roughly 16 months of time.

Most impressive, guys.  I'm in a good pbem, BigB and getting ready to grind my way towards Japan as Allies.  We're at the tail end of '43 and it has taken us I think a good year and a half.  Typically get one turn a day, but every now and then I get a trip and am sitting in a hotel all day.  What to do, what to do....

Prior to this I had some aborted games...a couple I threw the towel in on because the game just wasn't clicking and I had some life issues going on.  One game I toyed with Von Beanie and he whipped me so bad I've had bad dreams ever since.  I raised the white flag in that one by I think May '42 because he had taken every flipping island in the Pacific right down to the Societies.  I'm holding my own on my current one, though my opponent, Japan, is highly skilled which is making for a great game.

Unless something drastic happens
One in June 42, one in March 42 and April 43.

I played a full campaign as Allies versus AI;
took me 8 month of real life. Ended dec 44 by autovictory.
I had a break of 15 days in the middle of the process because i was bored at this time.
Usually 2 turns a days, and sometime 6 or 7 a days on week end, but because i hadn't to wait for a turn from the AI !

It will certainly took me more time if a go to a PBEM, as i would like to think about each turn, AND that i have less free time by now.

My longest, and current, PBEM is in April, 1942.  We're playing at a very slow pace, around 16 months RL, so about 1 turn every 4 days on average.  There were a couple of long breaks in there, so when we're humming along, it's usually about 1 turn every 2-3 days.  I don't know if we'll ever finish this game, but we're having fun. 

I think whenever I start another PBEM game, likely not until after AE is out for a bit, I'll give serious consideration to playing "2 day turns".  It would be nice to see things move along a little quicker, even if I usually can't fit too many turns into a RL week.

I have played three games to completion, two allied one japanese. The shortest game took 17 months with 3 or more turns per day and more on weekends. the longest was 2 yrs 4 months. I usually play 4 or 5 games at a time, and try to do 12-21 turns per week. But, I always have a few opponents who are one turn or less daily. I like the continuity of several turns back and forth. Its as close as I can get to playing the AI without suffering the bad play. One of my games went into 46, the others ended in December 44 and January 45.

I am into Jun 43 w/iley and a very competative game, I am the allies and after a major flub in the beginning he has about all of china and all the way to karachi, I didn't pay attention up there until it was too late and he did an end around on me, however the price for him is that I have advanced through all the island chains including the marianas, I put out a diversionary force to Kendari to draw his carriers away from Ulithi and now I am gonna strike him down! we are at the 18 month mark about a turn a day since I think we both have lives. But I see this going all the way to the end, a very smart jap player this one is

I'm envious. That would be my ideal. Maybe when I retire!

I've played up to late 1942 early 1943 at least twice, perhaps three times as Allies against Japan AI. First time on easy, and I quit when it felt like Japan was just sitting there.

Second time one notch up in difficulty same effect. Last time I played the longest, on Hard difficulty and most of the factors set to favor Japan. Still Japan did not manage to take Manila and I had a gigantic stack in Batavia wearing down their attackers.

I'm giving it one more try on Very Hard, and doing everything I can to give the AI a fighting chance, see if I can get up to 1943-44 weapons before I smash the poor feckless AI.

Also played a couple different games of WPO up to early 1943 . . .

One PBEM game to 1/25/43 and it is moving quite fast. We started 12/11/2008, thats 414 turns in 140 days for just under 3 turns per day and I have been on vacation for two weeks so no turns for 15 days now, which puts it at 3.3 turns per day average.
