I came for a download of PacWar, then I saw where an Italian lawyer invaded Japan in 1944. I later bought the game and joined the forum.
If you couldn't invade Japan in 1944 playing PacWar (and not just against the AI*), you weren't trying hard enough. Come to think of it, if in any version of WITP or AE except ironman you aren't doing that against the AI, you need to get serious.
[*to be blunt, in PacWar you could assemble all six divisions of the USMC, along with TF 58.1, 58.2, etc, Amph TF's to lift them, etc etc etc, into a massive death star that could all be supplied from one (1) port. The automated supply system took only a week to catch up. Once you had the BBB of F6F's, you could go from PH to Tokyo Bay in about 10-12 weeks, if you were patient
I was not referring to PacWar, I was referring to Greyjoy against Andav. (I believe it was against Andav.)
Against the Japanese AI, I get a victory as soon as it is possible. But then, I have never played any Ironman scenarios. Nope, not against the Man of Steel. (Stalin!)
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
