Last turn screenshot can be a bit biased because I didn´t play my last turn. I limited myself to write the in-game mesage and sending it.
Ireland DOW was a mistake because, Lords knows why, I disabled the weather button so I didn´t realized that we were under rain. Should I had stayed in NorthenIreland thing have been better.
The shatter issue have grinded my gears for good. I my allied game, 2 or 3 of german units survived by miracle after receivi9ng several 7:1+ attack. Here the same, even some of them have survived a couple of 10:1. My units were not so effective in that department.
We played under a weird bug that didn´t allowed me to recovcer efficiency on Axis planes with German trucks. And since Axis minor trucks goes to the german pool...that needs to be fixed.
Finland could have been stabilized should I had remeber that axis minor needs their own air transports for Air Supplies missions...ooops.
Usa invasion is no so antihistorical when you sink 80% of the Royal Navy. Let´s say that the Atlantic is free game for everyone.
I was unable to protect one of the captured USA ports by a missclick that I was unable to9 undo due finish adjacent to an enemy unit. I need to be more careful.
I was fully aware olf the surrender terms for Rumania, but anyways those ports should have been covered. Actually most of the game they were. Seems that I moved the units there and forgot to replace the...dumb move by my side.
But the 2 more important things:
1) Those thing of "keep pounding Gibraltar" is plain bullshit. I was losing over 6 steps per plane, and since you can only recover 5 , your units will be worse every turn. Also since ships at port can be bottonned, your efforts can be futile. My last two turns werelike this:
In order to sink a CA and a DD i losed 40+ planes, and Italian CA, and got hit points in several other surface ships. And the bloody CA had to be sunk 3 times due a couple of "Bottonned" results in a row. So, after realized that you only had 18 fleet points left I breather a bit...until I discovered that those 18 points were a CV and 3 BB's that wipèd the remmants of the Italian Navy when entering Gibraltar.
That was the moment in wich I say "**** this". There is a difference between making Gibraltar and making it a hell. If the goal is the second, as well remove the blockade rules to avoid lure german players in the belief they can do it anything there. Also, my unit there was losingefficiency like a champion even if I had it always fully supplied by Air Supply. I think that that issue needs to be fixed.
2) NEVER, NEVER, NEVER I will full conquer France again. Not only my opponent and didn´t know that colonies will end in german hands, but Also the whole french fleet for UK. If I had done a Vichi conquer, I had been the ruler of the seas by 1941 due the obliteration of the whole Royal Navy.
Honestly, is better to spent 150-250 PP in conquering NA then giving over 2000+ PP in free ships to the Royal Navy. We need something toi replicate the Tolon events, when the Germans collapsed Vichi in '42.
3) Surface raiders are overpowered. I can understand the destroyers protecting a convey running away from the Bismark or the Scharnhost...but runnin away from a CA group or a DD group that actually can be smaller that the convoy escort group? No way. Also as soon the jeep carriers started to acompany convoys, any surface ship wanting to attack could have been greeted with a nasty surprise. The surface raiders convoy attack need some tweaks.
