Need a game with me as Allies to even up the current games.

Experience level: Partly played one game vs AI in 2019 then left the game. Came back a few weeks back and currently have three games on the go (being trounced in two and not sure how I'm doing in the third (although my Barbarossa attack stank the place out ).

Looking for a good challenge with another fairly new player, so anyone who is experienced at the game and knows every rule and gamey exploit, you are not going to get anything like a satisfying game from me so please don't waste your time.

Thanks

Hi warspite1

I am happy to be your opponent if you like, this would be my first PBEM game, but have played a bit against the AI.

Let me know, as I dont know exactly how the PBEM works.

Thanks

I can set a game up.

Go into PBEM++ Online and the password is Weserubung.

And away you go.

Possibly won't get a turn in today as the footie is on tonight, but then again, if we stink the place out as usual I may switch off and return to gaming

I've picked the Race to Victory scenario so it ends in 1945.

I just checked and there are 3 opened challenges from you. Should I choose one of those, or you will create another one for us?

Sorry, first game, maybe newbie questions

I guess its trial and error - only one of those will have Weserubung as the password

Hi warspite

Now with the surrender of the Soviets, you want to continue ? I am happy to continue, lots of plans in my head, but over to you.

Sounds like your running scared? I'll accept your surrender.

Hi again warspite

Has been a good game, but with London taken with full dominance of the air and sea and lots of troops coming to UK, plus Egypt and China about to fall, UK will be out of the game ( Soviet are gone too ), its time to finish the game mate.

I have so much MPP with Germany that I cannot research or build anymore, and I will have with Japan over 12 carriers.

It has been a good game, and happy to share thoughts about the game so we can talk about strategies and mistakes of each other.

Let me know, I think we both are now losing time that we can spend in other games?

Happy to give you a rematch as soon as I finish one of my other games ( I think you are running lots of games too )

Well as the great Bucks Fizz once warbled "If you can't stand the heat...."

But yes, we can end the game now if you wish. Congratulations on your victory.

Thanks :)

I honestly thought I was going to lose after so much losses in France ( 2 tanks, 2 paras , fantastic defense of France, gave me hints for my 3 PBEM games as Allies, although I destroyed all the BEF apart from the HQ ), but the URSS was kind of easy ( I think its a mistake to defend that far, you lose a lot of MPP very quickly, and I think in the URSS campaign you need to delay the Axis to get their NM objetives as much as possible )

Air power was devastating in Russia without no AA

Also China was on his knees very soon even after Beijing was taken ( my mistake, but allowed me to destroy a couple of armies that I surrounded and you couldnt rebuild cheap). Changsa and Nanjing was taken early ( both are the keys to defend China in my opinion )

Even with that, I made the mistake to build 4 naval bombers with Japan, that did nothing in the war until the invasion of India, where the Royal Navy was sunk losing 4 carriers for no losses.

I could evacuate NA after some delays losing just a couple of italians, but failed in Abysinia ( should have sent more italians there )

I almost failed my assault in Hawaii, but after taken it, the Pacific was a JAP ocean and I could focus on India.

In any case, fantastic experience in my first PBEM game, thanks and happy to do a rematch soon!
