If it's any comfort to you EarlyDoors.

I have drawn Fanfir in the 2nd round of the Beta tournament and it's a mirror game. So I will have double the pain you are experiencing

May God have mercy on my Soul.

Ouch those losses are painful.

He only lost 1 German Mech unit and some Italian garrisons on land and no Japanese apart From the SF unit sunk at sea and the 2 Italian army's sunk at sea.

Were the Axis forces equipped with Kavilar body armour? I have had some games where I thought my units were using blank ammo

I'll need to change my underpants regularly when I am playing Fanfir in the Beta Tournament

~ Italian transports and navy went south towards the cape scouting for kreigsmarine. Oredr went out 'enough is enough' - France declared war on italy - USA and spain reacted negatively - Sunk 2 Italian Armies and 1 corps


What was the mobilization hit for US?
I am considering sinking those neutral ITA scouts, but I never bothered to check how high the penalty is.


Just played another game where I DoW on cheeky Italian transports in December 39 and can confirm that

US mobilisation went from 29% (150mpp per turn) to 24% (124mpp per turn)
Spain also jumped from unknown to 22%
In addition got to factor in early mobilisation for Italy from 65% ish to 100% (but that would happen in a couple of turns anyway)

Got 2 ITA armies - i'll take that!

Thanks for checking that. One question though - did UK units mobilize in Egypt afterwards? At once, later?

Thank you for the interesting AAR EarlyDoors. I admire your perseverance. Many gamers would have quit upon the successful invasion of UK but you kept fighting. And I thought it was really cool that Fafnir did not let up. He provided a great example of how one crushing victory leads to the next.

This was definitely not the balance graph when I invaded Russia in mid-1941. I suspect it's because 1) Russia gets a lot of free units as AI; and/or 2) I invaded a bit too late, when Russian mobilization was already fairly high.

~ 3 Battleships and 1 HCL lost at Pearl Harbor



How do you destroy docked battleships at Pearl Harbor? I tried to recreate the attack on Pearl Harbor after I declared on the U.S., but the ships were docked, so I sailed back.

How is are these numbers possible in a multi-player game? Did the Axis player get way ahead in tech?

its a perpetual cycle of pain

Mainly by Carrier -> Bombers

So I have gathered reading through the forum! ;)

You'd need gazillion carriers, no? And every tech maxed?

Also, can't the AI re-recruit destroyed ships? What's the cost-benefit analysis of destroying just 3 battleships?

4 - 6 carriers can do a lot of damage
when units spawn on DoW, their readiness is normally low making them vulnerable

Naval units cannot be reformed

New ships can be purchased at full price and timelines

which is 15 months for battleships and 18 months for carriers

I see. I will try Pearl Harbor next time then. Also, what is the best way to declare war on the USA? Wait till they mobilization nears 100 percent to delay? Or hit them ASAP for an early lead?

On ship recruitment: So if I lose every "named" ship on the recruitment list, I can no longer that ship type, correct? So I currently have 0 battleships on the Italian queue. So if I lose all the remaining battleships, I can no longer recruit battleships for Italy?

So, naming is just a label

When you purchase a unit it suggests a label for it - but you can change it
and at any time during the game you can re-name them

I've not tried but you can probably give them all the same label if you were so inclined

When a unit is destroyed, the label is added back into the suggested queue

This is not true for naval units
(not sure why)

but again you can probably name the new ship at birth or at any time during the game
