From: Bremen, Germany
I played the new scen 2 now to mid march 42.
Looks very good, the scripts "screwed" a lot of my "standard opening moves" :)
Without too many spoilers for other people:
Luganville is lost even after reinforcing it, killing all my defenders (2 base focres, 3 arty and one cavalry unit from australia), Nomea was lost before i was able to reinforce it. Port Moresby, Johnston and Palmyra gone, Tahiti gone, also Hiva Oa. DEI is neaerly complete taken, Singapore gone early march, had to abandon Rangoon early (great move!). Stalemate in china, but some units bypassed Nanning and havn't been seen since them (despite sending an cavalry unit after them, i still have no idea where they are now!).
I never fight back much before mid '42, to give the "AI" all it wants. But this time i see a harsh time getting enough troops to retake all those small but important isles fast enough. Will be an much more interresting game. :)
I only noticed one major AI mistake by now (not really sure if its a mistake of FoW), but its still sending Carrier attacks to Midway. Sometimes much larger then before (60+ dive bombers + fighters), but sometimes only some nates + 10-15 dive bombers.
Will try to remember to post an update every 3-4 months of gameplay.
