Does raising the difficulty level help the campaign AI? I'm playing Allies on Historical Difficulty, mid November in the 1922 campaign. I'm still having fun, but mostly because I'm still learning new things and trying new stuff. The 3 times I've encountered IJN BBs or CAs so far they ran away before any major damage could be done by either side. I was hoping once I learned the ropes the AI could give me a more serious challenge on higher levels before I consider moving to PBEM. So far my biggest challenge has been so many unescorted AP and AK targets off Luzon my subs and warships can't intercept them all before running out of ammo.
Exactly. AI does not escort its transports. It's a turkey shoot. And eventually it becomes too easy... regardless of difficulty level.
How much, if anything, has AI captured in your game?
