Japan was Nuked, lost China, lost Korea, lost Manchuria, lost Philippines, lost Okinawa, lost Taiwan and still wouldn't surrender. Had 16%
Is this in one of your games?
Only some feedback has suggested Japan's National Morale is not high enough and they may surrender before the Atomic bombs are dropped or Manchuria invaded, so knowing this will help. Is it right as it is or not?
Good Morning BR,
I'm not sure how it works (or supposed to work). This was an observation in most recent game against my sparring opponent ThundarLizard.
Game was late early 1945, and I had Korea, Manchuria, and "almost all of the original China". I read the script for the Nuke would trigger in Augsut 1945. At this early 1945 time (call it February, Japan's Morale was maybe ~40%? So I grabbed Okinawa, Taiwan and Manila June 1945. I didn't bother to check the percentage again (or cannot remember). Then I was asked the Truman question, wanna spend the 600 MMPs to do the deed. Of course I answered "Yes", figured the Morale would go below 0% and thus Japan would surrender.
Japan did not surrender, so I checked their graph, was low teens. Maybe 16%? Figured I had bypassed too many Island hops.
Is this how you got it designed?
This was actually quite the game, because ThundarLizard took Moscow in November 1945, while Patton was 2-hexes West of Paris. I surrendered as Allies because Panzer level 5 were operanded back to France. This is the game I got he 8-months of rain England/France. Was a classic tight game. Either one of us could have won.
