borner -> Optional rules (3/17/2011 1:36:52 PM)


I would like to know what other players think of this optional rules list.



No air strikes on unoccupied bases (a trick used by both sides to increase exp of air units)
No land based CAP over carrier TFs this is a game changer for Japan early with huge numbers of Zeros 15 hexes away from base, and then USN late with F4Us
Allied 4es must be at or above 10k ft for all operations
Max of 2 PT groups per hex, 6 ships max each
No sub invasions.
No F4us on carriers unless they arrive from Pearl with them
No night air ops.
No convoy tricks such as single ship AK/AP TFs, or placing an AP with an AG TF to prevent air attacks

Does anyone have any other rules they usually suggest to help the quality of the games they start?

I like it!
every large transport [AP,AK,TK,AO] task force [min. of 2] must have at least 1 escort type DD ship or similar - barges would use PG,SC, Pch, etc.

One tactic I remembered reading about here was a player sending multiple waves of single ship TFs, each composed of minor units such as PCs or PGs, against a defending surface TF. The sacrificial lambs would obviously be blown out of the water, but each engagement would also drain the defending TF of ammo. The attacking player would then follow up with a fully loaded TF composed of BBs, CA, and escorts to overwhelm the defender.

These two should be allowed, but as for the others ...

how about limited land based air squadrons depending on the size of the airfield. seems unrealistic to have 500 aircraft on a level 4 airfield that is a tiny atoll / island...

The game takes care of part of that, by lowering the % of planes that fly the more and more you get over 100 land based planes on small bases. Usually putting that many planes on a small base is a waste of resources.
