In Egypt the standoff continues.

Looking at the forces the UK army is of a good size so thats something but Canada a bit weak also airforce weaker.

Dec 1940

1940 comes to an end. No signs of any buildup in the east. Spies in Berlin claim that German HQ is a bit indecisive about what it wants to do next.

In Egypt standoff continues. The Axis have made a couple of attacks but they have been rebuffed.

On Ireland same thing frontlines stare at each other.

Its early days yet but thinking about the changes in the Beta patch I have some thoughts.

I think the British oil nerf might be too hard. Just last turn I had an income of 37 oil and spent 63 on chasing the very elusive German raiders. My opponent who lost Iraq in the other game says he is down to about 30 oil per turn.

As per the end of 1940 in both our games the British have not once found the German raiders. I am still undecided if that is bad or not. For sure the UK buildup is now a dribble. UK build basically only MM and escorts and some upgrades, Yes army is a bit bigger but airforce barely grown and landing ships being barely built. But maybe that is the way it should be this early in the game. We will see how it plays out later.

Lots of air losses for the Germans at this point and the Brit land forces look like didn't pay much so far. At near 300 Air Step loss I suspect anemia to try a '41 Barbarossa?

This turn I lost 22 merchants for 0 German losses. The Atlantic is brutal especially the raiders. I have since January 41 shut down southern Atlantic route. I only build MM now basically. One turn I shut down North Atalntic but and I didnt know that then you shut down the south Atlantic too since they join together. So that turn I had 0 production basically. So now I know why you have to defend North Atlantic so much. Ypu can turn off South but not North.

All this damage done with the German fleet and 6 subs.

Some naval action outside Gibraltar as the Italian makes moves to try and take it but this time the Royal navy was kind of ready but still lost the Warpsite. Never seen so large naval losses for the UK as in this game but it is fun.

In Egypt the standoff continues.

As can be seen so much UK merchant losses. In all honesty German sub losses also very big that is all subs as I have yet to manage to find a single German raider.

Slowly but surely the Uk is retaking the Guiness beer of Ireland.

More merchants lost. I do realise that one has defend North Atlantic with tooth and nail and I havent. I have been a bit complacent but I have never before seen such an outcome like this. I have even built merchants and escorts with the US something I have never done before .

As can be seen Yugoslavia was conquered in April and Greece looks to be next. There will be no Barbarossa this year. Stalin adjusts and starts to build Soviet army 2.0.

If I understand Alvaro correctly, locating raiders will be easier with the next patch.

Might be a good thing but I must say in previous games I have always found them and sank them eventually. It is just these two games that has been difficult and I dont think anything changed with the chance to find them so maybe just a lot of bad luck. With that said I think maybe the raiders are a bit too effective compared to real war so I dont mind tone down the raiders and if needed buff the subs a little bit. Also because of the new oil constraint on the UK I think if you sortie with the navy to find raiders I think your chance should be pretty decent to do so.

I've never had any luck with stopping surface raiders. It requires the UK to commit almost all of its fleets to attacking them to have any chance of getting a hit much less sinking one. A very costly and ineffective way. It will be interesting to see what the change in 9 will be.

Yes almost all the navy was needed but I felt in general you had the oil to do it. Way harder now with the 20/turn oil loss. Yes will be interesting .

Finally in an engagment outside the US coast I managed to find some raiders. Unfortunately my fleet was small and so losses were not that big but it is a start.

Finally Ireland is liberated.

Looking on the force size I think my naval warfare have been soso in this game. Been way to aggressive with trying to do port attacks with CVs against landbased air and also the surface ships vs port attacks. Attrition rate have not been very good. Remember I also got the whole French fleet. Luckily US will enter soon so I will get some more ships to throw away .

And German ships sail where I have never seen German ships before

Cant wait for the US to enter. This BoA have been very annoying and might have caused damage that might be hard to overcome. On the plus side of course a untouched Soviet union so very exciting.

Royal Navy continues to do badly. Poor Nelson . How was that outcome possible not even an ambush ah well.

At least using the newest Beta seems like finding the raiders is quite a bit easier of maybe it is just the randomness of the dice.

UK woes continues with an invasion of Lebanon. I sent an corps to Beirut but the Italian navy made short work of it. I like the higher damage on interception for sure. I shouldnt have sent the corps in the first place.

Some reinforcements have arrived so might not be that easy for the Axis to take Egypt.

But look at the size of the UK navy. And most ships are severely damaged and remeber because of the conquest of France I had the entire French fleet as well. Many lessons learnt in fleet management in this game for sure.

October 24 1941

In Egypt much going on. A double axis invasion on the coast of Egypt and a paradrop. British units severely pummeled but none shatter. In the counterattacks manage to shatter the invading Italian corps and the German para corps. That was nice of course. Hope to eventually get the German corps on the beach as well.

Battle of the Atlantic has cooled down a bit since the German fleet retreated back to France. I am a bit scared he is actually repairing the main ships and with the UK navy so pathetically weak I have also started repairing ships a little bit. Something I have never done before in any game. I dont even know how expensive it is but I think it is costly indeed.

I am also thinking maybe cost of building/repairing ships should come down quite a bit. You really cant afford to do a shipbuilding program even the UK launched a fair amount of new ships and that was dwarfed by the US effort. Kind of sad as more naval action would be fun so I think the game would be the better for it.

November 21 1941

Fighting in Egypt continues. As can be seen losses pretty high for both sides and units getting worn down. But I think now with US entry imminent that I can hold Egypt. Also launch a small invasion behind axis lines. Overran an Italian air unit and hopefully making supply even more difficult.

December 5 1941

On the eve of US entry into the war the axis western (not eastern) pincer in Egypt is hopefully defeated for now. This turn almost get one Italian mtn corps and manage to make a German inf corps surrender. UK units weak and open for counterattack but I dont think that there are that many axis units that can take advantage (I hope ).

To celebrate US entry into the war. I deceided to throw away some more Royal Navy ships. I saw the German fleet but my brain didnt register so I first attacked the Italian naval unit then moved into Gibraltar. Big mistake! .

In Africa not that much happens. I shift some reserves to the front on the eastern side of the Suez canal.
