Message from Japanese:
Correction: I could not play this card in response to your last card - since you didn't do any attack.
142 12/4/2020 8:49:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Uhm. Apparently, I could not do that. I wanted to play this card in response to yours. But I just checked and at 5.32 it says:

A Reaction event may be played in response to an Offensive after the Offensives player has completed moving all offensive units, provided there are one or more declared battle hexes or the text of the card indicates the card may be played otherwise.
141 12/4/2020 8:46:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Event #64: 2 / Weather: Halsey's Typhoon
Allied Offensive is canceled. All units are placed back at their starting locations. The Japanese player may reduce one full strength Allied CA or DD naval unit (Japanese player choice) that was activated for the canceled Offensive. This can only reduce, not eliminate, the naval unit. If none of the specified naval units are available, there is no additional effect. Draw one Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

138 12/3/2020 3:12:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Assuming my understanding of the critical hit is correct, then I'll assign all damages to 1Ind, eliminating it.
137 12/3/2020 3:11:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Sounds like it's my day. A 9, critical hit.

If I understand correctly, the effect of the critical hit is that I can assign damages to the same unit twice, eliminating it, instead of just reducing the two units.
But a critical hit does NOT mean an additional hit.

Just writing this to be sure. I also checked this on the FAQ, but couldn't find this point.

87 11/1/2020 5:53:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Correction: I had actually missed [R Corps] in 2018. That one also gets flipped.
86 11/1/2020 5:51:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Attrition phase. This one is difficult now...

First: I assume the term "Friendly HQ" for Allies means any Allies HQ - whether that HQ can activate that unit or not (e.g. the Dutch ground unit in 1813 cannot get activated by Commonwealth SEAC HQ. But still, since it is in its range, it does NOT suffer attrition).

With this assumption:
- All Dutch ground units EXCEPT 2 are out of supply, hence get eliminated.
Dutch CL (naval) in 2220 does NOT suffer attrition, as naval units don't suffer attrition.

- 1 Aus Corps in 3023 gets flipped.
- [Aus Air] in 3727 gets flipped
- [2 Aus Corps] in 3727 gets flipped

Nothing more, I think. All other Allies units are either naval, or within range of some Allies HQ.
All Japanese units are in range of some JP HQ.

air naval battle in Batavia
Nagato can not hit ground and can not the LRB which is fighting at range.
So only rolling for Allies and they need a crit to hit Nagato

Message from Allies:
Play as event.

Not much the allies can do in the beginning of the game.
So no surprises coming.
It is better not to save the passes untill the last, otherwise you would have 2 or maybe even 3 plays in a row with no possibilities for me to react.
