Not sure yet. Holding back my vote. I've gotten my butt kick by an experienced player, but then again, I've also have not been bringing my A-game because there are lot of rookies out there. Played several people that don't have a clue, if that's offensive comment not made for 2019, so be it. If the shoe fits, wear fit.
What's really odd against human opponents, I've seen players that can roll through Europe, but don't have any idea where Wake Island or Singapore is in the Pacific. Hard to figure out their skill level. I could tell this Euro dude could punch with Panzers, but in the Ocean, he couldn't swim 1-length of a pool, kicked his ass.
I know there's a "gamey cookie-cutter" Axis strategy that's really, really tough to stop. I refuse to share it right now. Why? Because everyone is quitting games in 1942. Seriously, has anyone gone the distance or just throwing in the towel?
Back to me, always about me. When I sense a weak player, I tend to try new things out. I'm an Entertainer. Buying Rockets, Bombers, Artillery. I like to have fun. Just gave this dude a Pearl Harbor in New York City with the Kreigsmarine. Having a ball. This opponent just cracked my Subs level #3. Fun stuff. So I really have no idea the balance because I'm just jerking around, being a D-Bag.
Now, I will say this. I do agree with the comments about Russia must have Infantry level +2, because without it, you are hosed. Complete punching bag. Only thing can save you against cookie-cutter Axis is weather. But hasn't it always been that way?
We need to get clear the victory conditions. I don't even know what they are. No one talks about the late game or "comebacks". Seriously Allied players, have you tried to make a "real move" or are you pouring thousands of MMPs into East Africa. I've got a really interesting game going where I will lose London due to SeaLion, but its been a bloodbath!
Out of all the people, it's amazing I'm not complaining. Judge Not. I really don't know, yet. Want to play Light Heavyweight in my UFC class without gamey moves.
How Great Thou Art,
