I am playing a PBEM game as the Allies and it is 10 April 1942 and the USA is at only 68% mobilization. How is that possible? My opponent has not invaded the USSR yet but historically Germany declared war on the USA after Pearl Harbor to honor its Axis pact terms.

Possibilities (including combinations of):
1. Turn bug in v16.02 that accidently increased the number of days that passed in spring/fall/winter turns. This results in 3 less turns per side per year. Since mobilization increases in both Axis and Allied turns... Though in the USA case it doesn't start immediately (theres a thread in the War Room category that details this). However it also affects Russian Mobilization and it would be highly unlikely that the USSR would not be in the war by that date either.

2. Diplomacy investment can take bites out of major power mobilization. Particularly if you don't counter it. It is expensive to partake of this and not so sure if it is worth it when #1 is fixed with new patch.

3. Passive Axis actions (e.g. no Denmark, Norway, Luxembourg, allowing Belgium to join allies after DoW Netherlands).

4. Real bad luck with Mobilization rolls.

1. The USSR went to 100% mobilization and then a script declared war on Germany - I was planning to not DoW Germany to prove to the US that they are not Russia were the nasty aggressors that they needed to get involved against.

I still think there should be a big boost in US mobilization automatically after December 1941.

Did Pearl Harbor trigger happen? That is a 15-20% mobilization increase.
After that (1942) increases should be 2-4% per turn (both Axis & Allied Turns).


#NAME= Pearl Harbor Attack (USA->Allies)
#TRIGGER= 100
#DATE= 1941/12/07
;15-20% mobilization increase towards Allies
; UK politically aligned with Allies and not surrendered
