269 6/1/2020 3:12:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Hi Joshua,

thanks for the game. It was quite a strange one and the first time I saw so many pitched battles in the DEI.

The early ISR for japanese is a tough one.

The few small things that helped me for the end 1942 - the ABDA stayed alive, usually it gets kicked out as soon as it comes on board.

DEI should have fallen at least a turn earlier, then I would not be able to fight back for it, even with ABDA. You went after Rangoon and Burma soon in the game but it cost you the DEI.

Interestingly the same might be said about the sinking of both carriers. That was a nice move and if you were able to get DEI, Malaya + Aleutians the PW would be quite dangerous for me. But again it was a cost of one activation less to get DEI, the same with both WiE cards.

I believe the japanese has to be singleminded in the beginning about his objectives.

Good luck for the rest of the tournament :-)

268 6/1/2020 12:44:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Filip, that was the most brutal 1942 turn I've seen as the Japanese in my fairly limited experience. I'm not sure exactly where I went wrong, and bad intel and a bad hand didn't help. I will concede the match as I see no realistic path to victory at this point. Very well played, and good luck to you.
