Halsey and I are IJ. CHS 155. Dec 8, 1942 (a year into the game). Allied players are unable to continue to play.
It's not really so bad. Not even 3:1 in points. Enterprise and Saratoga sunk, all other CV, CVL, CVE for both sides still afloat.
IJ controls PNG, Gilberts, Solomons, Midway, Wake, Baker, Western Aleuts to Cold Harbor. US controls Canton, Johnson, Samoa, Fiji, Luganville. Edit: previously stated US controlled Baker. This is incorrect.
Allies have Mandalay (contested), Akyab, Ceylon, OZ. Brits driving on Lashio (IJA controlled), trying to re-open Ledo Road.
IJA controls Changsha, Nanchang, Wuchow, Nanning, Ichang. KMT has Kweilin (contested), Liuchow (contested), Sian (contested).
