136 9/10/2021 8:46:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message I thought you played well. I think covering the fleet with your army air is a must for the allies.

I am playing Didier as the Allies, and he is clobbering me, only he is the one getting the 1 vs. 0.25 results as the Japanese. Its a balanced game which I like, I only wish the Japanese had an extra reduced army to react with
135 9/10/2021 8:00:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Yes, it seems that with almost every JP unit being reduced, there is little chance to stop the Allied force specially with more reinforcements about to enter play.

You had bad luck with the dice in most battles. This makes me wonder how does the Allied player defend early in this scenario. I felt out muscled early on and I was just trying to stay out of range of your air. Had you gotten a good result in one of the 3 early attacks, I would have been in trouble.

I was following a steady, infantry heavy approach by using ANZAC to get the infantry moving up NG hex by hex. I probably should have looked for more attritional battles. I think I made 2 clear mistakes: 1. not playing the ISR ender earlier and 2.Misusing 2nd Watchtower. I should have either send it to FoQ to wait for reinforcements/replacements or use to attack Truk.
