Apologies if this has been asked before (I looked everywhere but couldn't really find an answer):
Will it be possible to play just 1 major power in 'solitaire play' or do you have to play all axis (or allied) major powers vs an AI playing all the other sides major powers?
Against teh AI Opponent and when playing by email, a lpayer plays all the major powers on one side (i.e., Axis or Allies). However, ...
There are 4 scenarios which do not involve the entire world:
Barbarossa: USSR & Germany
Guadalcanal: Japan vs. CW, & US
Fascist Tide: CW, US, France, & USSR vs. Germany & Italy
Day of Infamy: CW, US, China, & USSR (in 1945) vs. Japan.
The latter two are "half the world" scenarios and major powers which span the globe get roughly half their units et al.
As an intro to MWIF I strongly recommend Barbarossa (the major land war) followed by Guadalcanal (major sea operations).
Can we expect the AI for these two scenarios be better developed as a result? Being such short scenarios their overall OOB (order-of-battle) should be more elementary.
