ilovestrategy -> Question about beginning (7/30/2011 7:14:00 PM)

What's the difference between the Dec. 7th Full Campaign and the Dec. 8th Full Campaign in the start menu? I know we were bombed on the 7th but why 2 different scenarios for the difference of one day? I'm guessing maybe the PH losses are already tallied up?

One more question. What menu options and which scenario is best for new player? I've heard you guys say several times AE is totally different than WiTP(I just really learned the basics there).

Thanks! [&o]

Some Allied players prefer the December 8th start date for AI games because the Japanese carrier fleet is already on it's way home and isn't coming back. You get some certainty for planning purposes. When you start a December 7th game against the AI the Japanese can stick around for days bombing Pearl Harbor depending on the AI script, reducing your fleet at Pearl to a shambles. (or their own air power in the process making for a duller game)

Playing the 8th December scenario is THE scenario to play by all those who complain about ahistorical Japanese play. It practically ensures that the Japanese player goes down the historical path. The Japanese player then finds it very difficult to

  • pull off a Mersing Gambit
  • destroy Admiral Hart's assets in situ at Manila
  • pre-empt an Allied attempt to establish a festung Palembang
  • hard to capture the bases in time (such as Jolo and Ambon) to destroy the escaping ships from the Philippines using the southern route
  • ensures the American carriers will escape destruction, if the Allied player is so inclined[:)]

What is a Mersing gambit?

Alfred -> RE: Question about beginning (7/31/2011 1:26:50 AM)

When Japan does not land at Khota Bharu and instead lands at Mersing. The idea being to stop and destroy the entire Allied army located on the Malay peninsula before it can retreat into Singapore.
