From: Montreal, Canada
I haven't played a v1.10 PBEM++ game yet as I am in the midst of playing a PBEM++ game as the Allies that was started with v1.09.01 Beta and upgraded over the course of play to v1.09.10 Beta, but the campaign changes are not in effect because the game was started with v1.09.01 Beta...
For what it's worth, I can tell you that both myself and my opponent, who is beating me soundly as the Axis, feel that the game may be slightly in favor of the Axis player in PBEM++ mode, but this may be because my Axis opponent played very aggressively, by 'tech-ing' up early and by attacking the low countries quite early, taking France early, and starting the invasion of Russia in April of 1941. This strategy, which is hard to counter, seems to be the best way to guarantee an Axis victory as the tipping point for where the Axis continues to get stronger (with early plunder points and early increased MPPs...) while the Allies get weaker, can happen early when the Allies are still relatively weak.
There is also still the play balance issue/dynamics of U-boats and Anti-submarine technology levels that apparently seem to give higher tech level U-boats an edge despite the level of Allied AS technology. See: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4361195&mpage=1�
