417 7/23/2024 8:50:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message good advice
416 7/23/2024 6:07:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Japanese Message Hey Lawrence, thanks for playing with me. I think you're quite new to the game, but you played very well.

About the AA reaction rule : think about it as an Intelligence breakout. The reaction forces are sent before the arrival of the assault force.

about the strategy : as you've seen, if the JP doesn't conquer the DEI at the end of Turn 2, then the allied footprint in Timor is an ideal platform to fight back. You did well here, and you were on your way to Malaya by mid-44. It was still a long way to Japan mainland though. The key in this configuration are the Philippines, or an approach from Malaya via the Chinese coastline.
You also noticed what a logistical nightmare a push to Bangkok and Sa´gon is.

Tactical tips :
- a lot of your ME are activated via CentPac only, htat's why you have to conquer Tarawa and Nauru otherwise the logistical path is too extended ;
- you saw the devastating effects of a Japanese 9-12+MarinesBr with a ship. It can change everything compared to a single 9-12 (basic 13 dmg instead of 9);
- chasing the PoW is a hard game. Targeting the unoccupied hexes is a very good idea because the Battle Hex is not automatic and you can stay below the radar. If you do so, use the card for Ops instead of event in order to optimize your chances, and send a Br instead of a full Marines Div. This way you don't lose the PW point in case you are intercepted. If you have to send a Div and you count on your chances to avoid the BH, use a very small Navy escort => this way if you are intercepted, you will lose the A/N battle and the Marines will go back home instead of a bloody landing.

You are not far away from succeeding your PoW fulfillments, and you have a lot more to discover during the endgame. Keep on playing !
415 7/23/2024 11:11:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message Thanks for playing me.
I learned a lot.
414 7/23/2024 11:01:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message No..no affect
As Francisco says.

Ah!

That's new to me, we'll have to add it to 9.13 as when you added the blue clarification in 8.46 you did not add a similar clarification for 9.13



Specifically this line

If the Organic Transport used in reaction is subsequently eliminated it has no impact on the reaction brigade its movement is concluded.

I find this rule thoroughly disgusting.
413 7/23/2024 10:53:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message Hang on.
Rule 8.46
. If the
naval unit is eliminated prior to Ground Combat resolution, the
ground unit it was transporting is also eliminated and does not land.

If the naval unit loses a step there is no effect on the transported unit

Aobe was sunk..therefore the Naval brigade was eliminated.
The 3 Marines is flipped but not eliminated.
Therefore it does land in Bangka
412 7/23/2024 10:40:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message I always think this game is unfair.
Offensive player wins the A/N result allowing offensive units to proceed.
How is it possible, if the Offensive player wins the A/N battle, the reaction player is allowed to land forces ...
it will never make sense to me....I think it is a GRAVE flaw in this game
411 7/23/2024 10:35:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message Unfortunate.
Well, that's the game.
