Wow! So if I am hearing this right, one must micromanage the entire Japanese or Allied side when playing this game (WitP...let alone AE)!?! That is A LOT of micro management!
If there is anything that I have learned about WitP, let alone AE, is that it is not for everyone. For me, the ability to micro-manage in WitP is why I keep coming back for more. Doubling the ability to do so in AE is why I am coming back for more. WitP and/or AE is *not* the game for people who want a quick fix.
That is why it is so unique, and stands out without comparison in my book.
Thanks very much for your reply Chad Harrison! Well, I must admit some of the options (being able to upgrade ships...I suppose I'm a bit of a JFB and would love to upgrade every Japanese Maru to a CV lol) interest me very much...and I can deal with micro-managing if it is worth it....but I must admit, I have to micromanage quite a bit in my job now-a-days, and micro-managing, I think, does not interest me as much as it used to when I was a wee bit younger (like with PacWar)...
I mean, do we play games like this because we want to control something? Do we project ourselves into this game world with the idea that we are the masters of what we see? Do "old stlye" grognard games like this actually help our imagination because we have to "connect the dots" a little bit?
With the above said, I also wonder (and I suppose I should do a search on this), if, since the game will seemingly go to 1946, is there a chance we will see the J9Y Kikka? I remember doing a little modding quite a few years ago with WitP to put the Kikka in the game, going so far as to making the little pics.....just an idle question and a little OT (sorry)
EDIT: HA! Just search Kikka the AE Expansion forum and one will see an Andy Mac AAR with Kikkas...cool!
