So do you think the Japanese are over powered?

I wouldnt go as far as that just yet. Although it looks kinda doomed for India, if Japan decides to launch early proper invasions there, im sure Ally players can come up with something to prevent it ;)

Maybe leaving garrisons in Bombay, Madras and Mangalore would work, while in the east you try to form defensive line at Dacca or Calcutta. Probably you need PH fleet too if Japan really commits to this. In the meantime you could be sending production to UK or India directly, so they can build 1 or 2 Corps (with transports if UK) - that should be ready around late March or April i think.

In order to get India to have single small corp around turn 7 takes India spending nothing on reinforcement, every single US MM, every single UK PP available to convoy. You can then on turn 2 build your corp.

If Japan wants to move into India will that one corp stop it? What is the disadvantage to Japan for doing this? The Australia is stranded without US oil and PP. New Zealand in the same shoes. US cannot move to take advantage of Japan in India.

I would invite others to try an invasion against defended (with replacements over starting strength) ports. I suspect it’ll be much more difficult if you can’t take out defenders in one shot because of effectiveness decay and reliance on beachhead.

I don't mean to be rude, but the Allies player didn't even garrison Bombay!!! Like hello??? you are giving the Axis 100 strength of units that they can just drop in India.

If you garrison that port, and put a unit in the level 1 port, its VERY hard to invade.

In my Jap PBEMs, I've gone for Madras and taken it by hitting it from multiple sides and blockading it, so its still possible to invade India, but its a LOT slower, which of course gives the Allies more time, more time = more units.

I really think this is just the Allies making a BIG mistake by not garrisoning Bombay, we don't need to panic about balance.

You’ll see I made the same mistake in my other AAR! The port defense bonus as well as their gateway to invasion was not obvious to a new player like me.

The siege of Delhi starts in earnest. As soon as the capital falls, India will surrender the next turn. Air assets start hammering II Corps, but, as you can tell from the ground attack values, the logistical network can't quite support full dedication to air. Additionally, the terrain and ZOC rules for Indian corps make it hard to get enough units in place. As soon as Delhi falls, 4 armies and 7 divisions as well as 2 air divisions can transition to China.

The weather *finally* lets up for offensives to proceed in China. Unfortunately, a triple partisan attack (another on Shanghai) cripples supply lines. Shown in light red are the 10 hex demarcations for ports, past which supply efficiency drops to 2:1 We will need a few turns to rebuild our effectiveness for the northern Chinese front. As can be seen from the overlapping supply points, the most efficacious advance would be actually from the south. The dotted yellow arrow indicates a possible advance that would catch the Nationalists off guard. If only there were some way to bypass the Communist forces...

I hadn't thought of ignoring partisans. I've been using divisions to suppress them, I guess your just crossing your fingers and hoping partisans/saboteurs don't ruin your day.

Whoops, sorry all for the hiatus. We have called an end to the game, as we didn't see much point in continuing at this stage, especially when a balance patch is out. I will glob out the remaining interesting fights, though not as neatly as before. Summary: big Auckland naval battle (with COMINT coming in handy for spotting), Allies took a beating, IJN eeked by with everyone, NZ half conquered with the fall of multiple Allied divisions. India almost dead, with the last set of attacks set up. Communists surrender from airdrop, and Changsha taken.

Final forces (left) and losses (right) shown.
Good game Yuejin, who will probably never keep India ungarrisoned (as I did in my first game as well!).
