ComadrejaKorp / stjeand, just for information, what are your advancements level for UK and France? Can you post a screen just before May 1940 please?
I have tried it many times, France gets progress in all technologies right on that date, in our game, I only need to update antitank that has 11 days left.
UK also receives their updates on this date, although they can afford a delay as they are in the rear.
Only once did I receive French anti-tank update in mid-June, it was against stjeand, but I put the English infantry in the front line (I replaced English garrisons in the UK with French garrisons) this gave me time for the French to update and the defense worked and the game was ruined.
It really hurt the eye to see Uk full of blue spots! But as Stjeand said some players do everything that the game allows us to win, I understand that it can annoy, but also annoying that they lower their arms at the first problem.
Since the previous version where this defense already worked, it seemed very difficult for the Axis to conquer France, but it was really in this game where I discovered that it really is a big problem, because it worked, although I had bad cards and against a rival possibly better player than me.
