151 1/26/2020 9:43:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Here's the relevant rule on reaction:

If the intelligence condition is Intercept or Ambush, the reaction player may designate one (and only one) in-supply HQ as the reacting HQ, which may activate
units to react to battles. There must be at least one declared battle hex within range of this HQ (this range cannot be blocked by any means)

Had to look it up, sometimes I get things turned around even if I knew it correctly in the past.

Message from Japanese:
Not sure why you think I couldn't react to this. ZoI has no effect on reaction. As long as an HQ is in range (as the crow flies) reaction is theoretically possible.

In this case your ZoI would prevent me from activating anything in Cairns as it's out of supply.

Normally I'd pause here to see if that affects your move but even if I can react and decide to all that's at stake you the Aussie air, which in many ways is better off dead for you (free redeployment).

94 1/23/2020 6:54:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message On closer look I think SWPac is currently out of supply.

It's easy to fix but for an HQ to be in supply it has to trace to a map edge without entering an uneutralized Azoc.

For HQs the path length can be unlimited but land areas can only be exited and entered at ports.

Can't see where that's currently possible. Ass soon as you cancel my Azoc over Pt. Moresby you'll be back in.

Also SEAC (because it's British) doesn't have to trace to the east edge to maintain full efficiency.

69 1/18/2020 5:15:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Couple minor things:

The Australian mandates switch to JP control since I control Rabaul and Guadalcanal.

All the DEI airfields/ports become JP except Kendari

The unit in Manila dies to attrition. No HQ can reach
it even ignoring AZoC. Biak survives because CPac can reach it through my AZoCs.

68 1/18/2020 4:31:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message My reinforcements and replacements are uploaded. We got lucky on subs....they must have been stalking around Cairns!

I'll wait to make sure I did not screw anything up before drawing my cards

62 1/18/2020 1:23:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Be careful here though. Those forward areas are easy for me to put out of supply.

I've found the key for the allies is patience.

61 1/18/2020 1:21:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Supply can be tricky in this game. Just recently learned that Rangoon can only be supplied by sea through its south facing hexside.

All the ports you list are eligible to have an HQ placed in it since that HQ could reach the east board edge without passing through my AZoC.

In turn you could then place units in the same space as the HQ.

None of those ports could have units placed in them without an HQ since CentPac can't reach them without going through my AZoC.
