Once again, just as I think I am making progress, something comes along to kick me in the nuts and force me to start over.
I've been "playing" GD for a while as the Allies, but getting nowhere, the Russians just get horribly mauled. I've figured out how to just hold off the Germans for a while.
But, in preparing for D-Day, I encountered another frustrating surprise. So, first of all, the cost of amphibious operations is insanely expensive. 6 points per corps. I am playing on "very easy" which should have me awash in cash. But spending ALL my UK PP for two (2) turns yields only 11 points, not enough to land two corps.
Now, you might say, but the real Brits put ashore only two divisions on D-Day, so why are you trying to land corps? Answer: because we've already established that divisions are useless tin soldiers in this game. They'd never even make it out of their landing craft.
Anyway, I thought I had budgeted for this but ... no, because the price of an amphibious point suddenly jumps from 37 to 46 right before D-Day.
Why the hell is that? Apart from, in order to piss me off and ruin my game?
