I知 startinga PBEM as Allied against Cannonfodder. We have a HR preventing CAP over 30% the first day but, If he will raid PH, I知 planning to set all my fighters CAP 100% on the second day and every other thing that can fly w/ASW mission. The assumption is I won稚 strike KB anyway because the game engine will prevent my bombers to attack against the overwhelming Zero force. So I might as well strike a different valuable target, the subs the area surrounding PH is very crowded with.
Somebody think this is gamey because I知 using historical knowledge to set my assets?

To be honest, setting your CAP to 100% on day 2 will end 1 of 2 ways. No losses cause KB leaves (how I usually do it), or most of your fighters shot down because KB stayed and the P40s etc can't compete with the 90 XP pilots of KBs Zero squads.

I know this cause I recently experienced it. Not so much fun to be on the receiving end.

Don't worry about the ASW. Your air crews experience level is pretty low so you will not hit much. Plus with airfield damage there is a good chance the not many will fly anyways. I don't think you need worry about your opponent claiming gamey. I doubt he will notice. If you sink a sub, consider yourself lucky.

More probably the KB won't move and your ASW crews will get slaughtered by KB's CAP.

Don't worry. It's not gamey at all.

Thanks Shark, I know that my CAP will be horribly beaten but what different options I have? If they don't fly they will be losses anyway. At least the few survivors will gain some experience.
Let's hope KB will leave after turn 1!

CRsutton and Greyjoy many thanks for your answers. I would have loved some positive note but I fully understand Allied position the first weeks (months?) of war.
