Message from Allies:
So... interesting fun fact about this move. Mark Herman recently clarified the rules around carriers and other naval units supporting Amphib Assaults to unoccupied hexes. If there is no battle hex being declared, the carrier cannot just "hang out" and support a landing without a battle being declared. They have to be a part of a battle hex, or they must end their movement in a friendly port. That is the rule, but most players just sort of said, the carrier is supporting the landing even if there is no battle hex, because there COULD be one with an SR roll... but that is not the rule. So, you can't stick your carrier out in the middle of the ocean to neutralize the AZOI to make the landing possible without them being in a battle... it sort of makes sense, but it's sort of annoying. In any case, normally, I would not attack you in Kwajalein just move close and "support the landing" and just hope that you fail a special reaction roll... and if you didn't, I'd have the navy available for the battle, but due to the new rule clarification, I sort of have to declare the battle in Kwajalein so I can move my ships in. I hope this makes sense... if not, I can try to clarify some with different examples. I believe Mark has made comments on BGG and CSW.

In any case, you can attempt to make Maleolap a Battle Hex through an SR roll, but it is not currently one. If you do, it will make the Enterprise switch to that battle hex, as it occupies the hex. (Note: BB Miss will stay fighting in Kwajalein regardless.)

I apologize for the extra shifting things around in the vassal logs, but this is the final stuff...

Message from Japanese:
Submarine warfare (3)
174 8/12/2021 2:57:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message I've been thinking about this some. I also don't want to appear overly critical of your game play. And I don't want to play your game for you. But, I'm also happy to provide you with constructive advise on what you did right and wrong in Turns 2 and 3. I'm quite happy to play this out as far as you would like, or restart the game if you prefer. I enjoy playing with you and would rather spend time playing with you to elevate your game and get you playing in other tournaments and games so you stomp your opponents, or even just stomp me. =)

In turn 2, overall, you did fine. You targeted taking DEI. Your timing on some cards could be refined. Playing Panama and your FO early restricted your actions and allowed me to "adjust". For example, if I was holding a War in Europe card, and you played Panama in AR2, I'm more likely to use that WIE for Ops instead of trying to play as Event. Now, you could have crushed my soul by letting me play my WIE for Event and thinking that I'm going to get double reinforcements, and then play Panama "late" in the turn. Or, if I never play a WIE, you could save it for FO, or play for Ops. But generally this is minor. Otherwise, I thought your turn was fine. You had a lot of other MI cards, so looking to ensure your activations are maximized is critical. I threw ISR at you, so that was bound to cause you headaches, and you handled it well, but that's where playing Panama early also hurt you some. You did get card rotation, but you could have played a "historic" card to maximize the activations when not in ISR. The only real weak point in your T2 moves was not covering Eniwetok, or perhaps striking into New Guinea or covering Rabaul. This is where the efficiency of your activations comes into play, but that is sometimes hard to plan for when dealing with ISR.

In Turn 3, I've been trying to figure out what your plan was. This is the challenge as the JP player. The events on cards are sometimes a trick. Playing the RIGHT events is critical, but others are just "another Ops card" instead of MI events. But as the JP, especially in 1942, you have to have a plan and goals that you meet regardless of "long term" advantages. You should have been targeting Philippines and Malaya and then pushing borders. Everything else was "optional". You need to knock down the US Political Will. That means taking out countries. Don't get me wrong, targeting my carriers was awesome, but secondary. You also never struck towards Attu/Kiska, which could have gained you the same PW in the long run with a single activation. Nor did you strike at Malaya or Philippines. Where you could have done this is with...

Carrier Conversions was, especially this early in the game, a 3 Ops card that should be have been used for Ops not event. Even if just striking at Malaya with a ground unit and maybe doing some other board adjustments.

Tainan Air is debatable. It's a 1 Op card, so hard to find a clear use as Ops, but perhaps a "silly" Amphib Assault to move into a more challenging space, like Singapore, from a nearby (even adjacent) hex. The two cards could have driven down my PW by taking Malaya, and there wasn't much I could do to stop it.

Your Kondo and A-Go play could have taken down Philippines and sent someone to Attu/Kiska. You have to focus on the Philippines in T3. Particularly when the Allies have a presence in Biak. Admittedly, your Sub attack and follow up against the Lexington were very good to disrupt my carriers. And you used the plays to get out of Rabaul... but to an extent, your attacks in Kondo were more "pin" attacks without a clear "attack in force" to really hurt me. You got lucky with Lexington getting damaged and then following up with the death blow. The JP, at this time, have VASTLY superior forces. You should be concentrating with overwhelming force against my "strong point" or your intended target, skip the pins. Who cares, you have more guys. If my bomber with 4 CF comes in, so what. You bring in you
173 8/12/2021 9:51:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Yes, I generally agree, that saving the Philippines is a very bad thing for the JP.

I do admit that right now, I don't have the strongest position. But even if all I do is hold on to what I have this turn, I will continue to get stronger and stronger.

The game is definitely heading in my direction earlier than it should, but you can definitely make things difficult for me.

sorry
122 8/8/2021 3:26:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Minor issue. A-Go is Reaction Counter-Offensive card, not a Military Event card... You can't play for event, it has to be for Ops value and you can't declare multiple battle hexes... so, you pretty much need to pull the card back to your hand and start over.

Sorry... This is a common mistake with this card, and the Sho-Go card when playing in ACTS. When playing in the Vassal module or face to face, the card is more obviously not a MI card. It's quite frustrating that it is not more obvious in ACTS.
