Re: Plaid vs Vokt CEAW GS 3.2 beta AAR -- rematch

CVs sitting in port bombing freely seems a bit off. Probably should remove defensive bonuses for being in port when CV attacking.

Re: Plaid vs Vokt CEAW GS 3.2 beta AAR

Have not played CEAW in a while, but is it possible that air power is slightly too effective? Being able to annihilate armour units solely through air strikes from 43 onwards may be a bit too much.

Re: Vokt (axis) vs Plaid (allies) 3.10 AAR

Yeah I like this strategy. Wonder what one German mech in Africa more would have accomplished, could have gotten really ugly for the Allies. Potentially relatively more value than the negative from one less in Russia.

Allies have to be careful now, lest the Tobruk inf put their Med forces out of supply.

Re: BattlevonWar (Axis) vs Vokt (Allies)

It is a minor issue, but it would be nice to have the Salo republic forces in there, at least for Germany the units would be drawn from a different manpower pool, likely welcome in 43-44. TO be fair some Italian units should also join the Allies, though garrisons have little offensive value.

Re: BattlevonWar (Axis) vs Vokt (Allies)

Thx for well-detailed AAR.

One game development Q; Vichy French units fighting on for Adolph long after France has been liberated? Is this working as intended? Seems pretty strange to say the least.

Re: Battle vs Morris 2nd Edition

GL! But if learning the game it is better to play the Allies, especially vs veterans, much more forgiving for errors.

Re: Axis not able to use Atlantic loop in the Red Sea?

It's not a bug. This was changed because of the distances involved and the fact that while the Allies had many support bases in Africa, the Axis did not. On the other hand, they can go to the Persian Gulf freely now. True enough. However, you could hypothetise that *if* Suez is controlled, this mea...

Re: Introducing a "homemade historical variants" -concept

Well historically the Axis did control all those three (well Stalingrad only 90%), and Turkey was nowhere near to joining the Axis. Maybe if you add Batum (on the Turkish border) to the three. Agree that it would make for added spice and tension if Germany are near to fulfilling the requirements.

Re: GS 3.0 Plaid Axis vs Morris Allies

Lordz have plans with Slitherine and Matrixgames to make CEAW 2 using the same game engine used for their WW1 game. Glad to hear it. I hope they put in all the good ideas from the GS versions. That would be great, but most likely it will be more generic and mass market, so the mod team will have to...

Re: GS v3.01 slight modifications for testing

I think this one will change game a little bit in favor of Germany. +1 survivability and +1 defense for just 1 star is a huge bonus for ground units. +1 survivability for SUB is also a big change. Now 1 or 2 stars (I rarely see more) really means something. Interesting changes! Likely it will make ...

Re: GS 3.0 Plaid Axis vs Morris Allies

I like the anti-blob rule, but maybe we should increase German caps a bit? IIRC ATM it's 3/5/7/9/12/15 and all nations are treated the same way. How about sth like 3/5/8/11/14/18 for Germany? So no changes for 1939-1940, a small increase for 1941 and a high increase for 1942-1944. Ofc it's still a ...

Re: GS 3.0 Plaid Axis vs Morris Allies

IMO the "anti-blob" rules should be relaxed a little, specifically as it hinders Germany's ability to field a large fighter force (which anyway is somewhat limited by oil). Inability to contest the air is what ensures Allied takeover early on.

Great AAR! I wonder if one or two good German MECHs from your reserve would have made any difference in Sicily?

Re: Hü (Axis) vs Morris (Allies)

You want to be aggressive in Russia, too? Ambitious. I'm wondering how you will do there, because as far as the western Allies are concerned, you simply crushed them. Even in Fortress Europa scenarios, it's not common to see the Axis in control of GB, Spain, Norway, Greece AND the Middle East in 19...

Re: Hü (Axis) vs Morris (Allies)

Wise choice to build more BBs, with the combined Axis navies vs US (Brits all but eliminated) the battle for the Atlantic can surely be won. Somewhat brash of the American to sally forth alone in this scenario, should be a glorious battle!

Re: Morris Axis vs Kragdob Allies

Maybe to count as a capture of a rail hub for surrender purposes the capturing unit should have to be in supply level 3 or better. Then para drops or commando raids (landing a garrison) on rail hubs wouldn't do it. Cities would still always count since they give supply (unless bombed). Excellent id...

Also, might be prudent to move a garrison or a partisan unit to Helsinki. No good having an empty capital with enemy paras in sight..
