Nonsense. With all due respect, but I believe your strong pro-Allied bias has left you blind on one eye. Über-Netties, Über-Zeros, overavailability of air-launched torpedoes, too much idle merchant shipping, insane Japanese R&D advancements, ridiculously high airframe production figures, the magic highway, China Blitzkrieg - just to name the most blatant examples - have all been complained about on the forum as being unhistorical or ahistorical - and justly so.
Interesting what scen are you talking about? Probably one of the fantasy ones, cause I do not see:
in a stock scen... I guess many ppl are just playing scens where some things are overpowered and then complain about the game, even if certainly it is not "the game" to blame but the mod used in such cases.
I agree with these (for the vanilla game not fantasy)
"overavailability of air-launched torpedoes" - True those were expensive for both sides
"too much idle merchant shipping" - True both sides
More split opionin on these:
"insane Japanese R&D advancements, ridiculously high airframe production figures" - Comes at a cost, but might be also more true. If Japan in real life had prepared better and made better priorites for raw materials and workforce maybe not so. SO 50/50 for this one.. EDIT I remeber a thread on here were someone compared real life WW2 IJ plane production to those easy possible in the game and guess what the figures in game were lower. BUT the frames produced were better then real life
"the magic highway" - Not true, seems to be corrected/nerfed in latest game version which I use.
"China Blitzkrieg" Not true, all depends on the leader imho. If you put your Chinese in open hexes, try to defend to many cities etc. well you might get a Blitzkrieg against you. Guess what tanks are not so effective in mountains and heavy forest..so you put your troops out in light terrain knowing they have not much AT and then get crushed and then... complain about "Blitzkrieg in China" -- see what I did there
I am going now OT in my own thread but we have already personal insults, beer and girls so who TF cares anymore about OT
Remember that the initial pilots for the Japanese Navy were highly trained plus they were being used against somewhat inferior aircraft with not as highly trained aircrew as well.
Yes, as I previously pointed out, there are no more fights between the IJA and the IJN plus the planning is coordinated. Not to mention the coordination of information among the disparate Japanese organizations is perfect. This is also true for the Allies who can place a higher priority into the CBI/SEAC theatres as well.
The game used the have torpedoes available for every base force but now for only the Air HQs. The torpedoes also cost 10 units of supplies - that is ten tons! No torpedoes were that heavy so that is a significant cost compared to using bombs which may actually be better against some targets since of the the targets are highly vulnerable to bomb hits and the aircraft generally carry more bombs so there is a greater chance of damaging said target.
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
