I want to start a two on two game for the following reasons:

1. I am a newbie who has only played the AI, kicked its butt, but would've been killed against a human. I.E. I learned all the wrong things.
2. People, understandably, are hesitant to start a long game versus a newcomer.
3. With a 2 v 2, if one person cannot continue then we can ask for a replacement from the forums and still go one in the meantime.
4. I want to learn and this is the best way, and plan on a detailed AAR with all of my "unrecognized brilliant strategerie" who is governmenteese translates to horrible plan but actually could have been worse but fat chance proving it.

5. So, I am looking for an experienced player to man the Allies with me, someone who views this as "fun" and "how bad can it get really" and have bragging rights when we sink a CA or xakl or don't lose Cisco.
6. Two players for the LYB's who, ideally, can view this as a chance to try new strategies and explore what-if's. Preferably players who have a game going on already and can view this as fun.

My initial thoughts are Scen 1 with PDU on or Scenario 2 with PDU off.

I am open to discussing house rules.

Any comments or suggestions? Just comparing "Hits" on this versus messages or posts.

I would be willing to play a part of the Allies.

As a newbie myself--I've been "playing" the game 2 months maybe, and I have never even got a game out of March against the AI-- I now find myself in not one, but three (yes three) PBEMs.

So I think you'll find that people will absolutely be willing to play you 1v1; however, I'm not trying to diminish your proposed match though. It does sound interesting. so you should go for it if that's what you're most comfortable doing.

There doesn't seem to much interest.

I am willing to do a 1 v. 1 but wanted to see if people wanted to try the 2 v 2 to allow the issues of one person being busy and #2 able to continue game while they're on vacation/busy, etc.

I could do part of a slow 2 x 2, but I have 3 1 x1 games going now, and that is enough.

Hello,

I would like to share the US Side. What about a test 2 versus IA to see if we can play together quickly enough then start a 2 v 2 or 2 v 1 ?

2 suggestions. 1) a 2x2 can become a 1x2 or a 2x1 or a 7x2. Try and start one and be flexible. 2) if your a newbie, and people don't yet know you , start small. a Grand campaign takes years to play. That's one heck of an investment. A Guadalcanal campaign is months. A Coral Sea is about a week. Consider it a "test drive". An while you are doing the "test drive" , keep an AAR. That way people can get to know you , and might develop enough trust to consider the GC investment.
