From: Glorious Europe
This will be the AAR for my 2nd game against Sillyflower, our first game (my first multiplayer game) he won on the very last turn!
Just to be clear: Sillyflower no you are not allowed in this thread!
I know Sillyflower likes writing rather prosaic AARs, sadly my writing style is more somber. I'll try to detail my plans, strategy and execution.
I'll also, for my very first time in an AAR, try to add some photos and other tidbits to liven it up a bit. Not sure how well I'll succeed.
The Lessons Learned
I played 5 multiplayer games in 1.06, three of those as the Axis. While I made many mistakes, two of them really stood out and I aim to remedy
those shortcoming in this and future games.
First of all, manpower. I didn't understand how manpower capped and the need to keep manpower below 99% to get the most out of it. In
this game, especially as Germany, I will carefully try to stretch my manpower as far as possible.
Second, airpower. My air losses in our first game were catastrophic. I put all my air units on full support and left them like that.
The results were not pretty. In this game I aim to use my air units carefully and only when needed. A precision tool, if you will.
We need more of these guys:
