From: Cape Canaveral, Florida
I've played 4 pbem's so far and half way through my 4th, each time Port Moresby is a key target (For me its always been Darwin). As a Japanese player, you have choices in what to do - I say stay the hell away from Moresby, Milne Bay is worth more in my opinion, having to have ships round Milne Bay to resupply Moresby can be a dangerous game.
On my third PBEM I straight ignored Rubaul and took Moresby early, then Milne Bay - which was a bad idea, LBA eventually bombed me back to Rubaul then in late 43 my opponent simply walked over - taking Moresby without a fight.
On this PBEM, I handed moresby over on a platter, ignoring it completely as allied, I instead focused on Cooktown and Townville, I had to give up Darwin, however my opponent simply wanted nothing of it, he was trapped at Darwin before as I was in the previous PBEM.
Darwin is logitically good for the Japanese, it can be built into a nice base, and resupplying isn't to much of a problem, however Airpower is - as the Allies can come over with 4E's, you simply are buying time.
My opponent this time around completely ignored Rubaul even, focusing on keeping the Marshall island chain under heavy air threat, while building up WeWak and Hollindia instead.
So far I basically captured Tarawa, Luganville (7/43) and starting a rebuild process, he has all his carriers as do I, however I am looking at the long term goal of walking my way over to Darwin then up to Java.
