Curious what others think about this decisions for PBEM games:

* Expeditionary force to Finland - usually never take it but you do get a SF unit
* Re-route Norway convoys - always take - seems like a no-brainer
* Annex Lithuania - sometimes take it - not sure trade off on Soviet mobilization
* Send BEF to France - always take it
* Italy DOW Greece - never take it - rather have Germany DOW when ready
* Italian expeditionary force to Russia - always take for HQ unit
* Annex Timor - get's Portugal on Allied side - what's the point?

Are there others that people have views on for MP games?

Some decisions depend, but there is a single one where there is clearly a right and wrong choice:

* Send BEF to France - complete madness not to do this

The raid on Dakar (or is that WiE?). I'd love to know what the prize is as it has never come off for me.

Here is my opinion for what it is worth:

1. Allies should do EF to Finland. British and French each get SF unit at below normal price. Is successful, Finland goes 20% mobilization to allies, which means that when axis forces get past Riga during Barbarossa, Finland won’t mobilize to axis. You just have to make sure you don’t send any Soviet ships into Finnish waters though, as Finland will mobilize from that. If unsuccessful, you get the SF units.

2. Re-route Norway convoys unless you plan for a Sea Lion against England. If Sea Lion is successful, convoy gives more MPP’s and is worth not changing it.

3. I think Germans should annex Lithuania overall. I think the extra mobilization that Russia gets can easily be accounted for with rapid German advance though the Baltic states to Leningrad. Makes it easier for axis to destroy border units mobilized at start of war with Russia. I maybe wouldn’t annex Lithuania if going for a Sea Lion operation.

4. Send BEF to France. Not sure of anything they could do otherwise anyway. Maybe use them to invade Norway.

5. If played right, Italy should invade Greece with German help.

6. Not seeing any downside to Italian Russian expedition.

7. AnnexTimor if planning invasion of Australia, otherwise not worth the risk of Portuguese mobilization to allies.

8. Mobilize Malaysia. Supply is so bad that I have not done this mobilization, however, if planning a Royal Navy defense of the DEI from Japanese invasion, then maybe nit such a bad idea. Allies can make it really tough for IJN to take DEI if played right. Put 2 subs next to the beaches and it pretty much keeps the islands from being conquered on initial invasion.
