I believe several notional calculations are incorrect. Please point out my errors. US is at war with GE/IT but not JP. JP have just declared war on the CW to whom the NEI is aligned.
Situation 1 is near Rabaul. As seen, in the attached file, the US has several CAs based in Rabaul. The Japanese are invading Rabaul from the Coral See and have CSV in the Coral Sea and Bismark Sea. When I take the 2-4 mar div from the Coral Sea and place it to invade Rabaul, it gives odds of 2:2 - 1 notional pt doubled for the mountains. Is the presence of the US CA's negating the surprise, even though the US and JP are not at war? Even, if that was the case, I believe the overseas notional supply is blocked by the JP CSV in the Bismark and Coral Sea.
Situation 2 is over in the NEI near Batavia. The JP 6-3 Marine in the 3-box of the South China Sea is invading. I thought there would have been a notional factor in the hex adjacent to Batavia due to the ZOC of the NEI Terr in Batavia, but it is indicating the JP can invade there against 0 notional (6:0). The notional should be a NEI notional and in supply via Batavia.
#2 is not a bug. The Commonwealth is surprised so the notional unit is -1 in strength.
Perfection is an elusive goal.
