    HQ-Bug?

    Hi! I had this bug sometimes in AoD. I use my HQs mostly in Auto-Assist mode. In cases I can't recognize, one unit was double-attached to the belonging HQ. When you cancel all attachments of the HQ you can see one of the units still connected. I hope this helps.

    Graph and MPPs

    No. I think, when the US send MPPs to another country, their MPP graph will be lower by this ammount an the recieving countrys graph will be higher.

    AoD v1.03.2 Hotfix

    Hi Hubert, thanks for the news. Does the hotfix work also for a self-modified multiplayer game? We changed some unit combat values and a few things on the map.

    AoD Tournament Report Board

    Intresting game ... but where did the Japs get the 15% morale bonus?

    An idea to balance early game in China

    The problem with DEI is - it is conquerable. It can be manipulated. At a certain point of playing progress the Japs player will conquer it. When he does it smart, the US stay out of war but he benefits from the DEI income and eliminates the embargo effect.

    An idea to balance early game in China

    I didn't talk about "overrun in 1939". It would take a few years, no doubt. I said, they would do so if they had really focussed on it. What means that they had to invest in their landbased fighting abilities instead of their naval abilities. Exactly the same way the player has to do when he wants a "Land-Japan".

    An idea to balance early game in China

    Hi Strategiclay, my focus in historical strategy games is always on the question: would/could this really happen? From this point of view I think: yes - the Japs would really have overrun the Chinese when they had tried it seriously. And if they had made it so, the US would never enter war to save chinese lives. They were strictly pacifistic until Pearl Harbor. What they really did and what maybe could be tuned is to embargo the japanese income of MPP when the Japs are too aggressive. This would be more historical accurate for me than swinging into the war. Maybe we can define some cities in China and Southeast Asia that will cause a MPP drain every turn when Japan holds them and the US is not at war? And this could be increased annually.

    An idea to balance early game in China

    Good ideas, Strategiclayabout. But what ist your intention? Is it to counter the "anti-USA diplomacy strategy" or is it to balance Japan vs. China? If it's the first case, it's the wrong way I think. Because for me the "anti-USA diplomacy strategy" is gamey and should be deactivated. No major nation should be able to influence another major nation by diplomacy - regardless whether allied or hostile. The (Axis-) players can "control" the US-mobilization by their aggressiveness. And nothing else. If it's the second case, there is no need to rise american mibilization in response to japanese success in China. Because when Japan decides to conquer China, it will do so but it costs them a lot MPP which they need for their navy. If you believe that Japans way in China is too easy, lets discuss about it (I don't think so) and manage the things between Japan and China directly.

    Allied defense of Egypt

    If the Axis wants to take Egypt, it will do so. Italy itself hasn't enough power, but with german aid it becomes possible. But Germany needs all the MPP to prepare for Barbarossa. Every unit sended to the Med will result in weaker forces against the SU. Taking Egypt or not is an Axis decision - not an Allied. And if the UK looses Egypt, the SU should perform better against Germany. AoD is a global game. Don't look only to one specific area. Every concentration of power at one point has a disadvantage at another point.
  10. That's for me the most important wrong thing. Conquering Britain doesn't eliminate the UK from the war. It only takes them some MPP and moves the Capital to Egypt. And this is the KO for Italy because they now have a much stronger enemy in the Med. New troops start in Egypt and can conquer North Africa without any problem. IMHO this is quite unrealistic. A successful Sealion should bring a neutralized UK (and Commonwealth) with the disadvantage of an instant DOW US->Axis (no raise in USSR % mobilization).

    Taking Malta

    Italian BB's and CA's are also very useful to bomb down Malta's supply. Four Ships can reduce it to zero in one turn and the following air strikes are much more effective. But this is only a possibility when France is fallen and the french Navy is out of war. And be aware of the british navy. They have a CV in the Med.
  12. I meant: when the AI normally would build 2 corps and 2 armies and there were 3 corps and 1 army to build for half price, would the AI change it's building list?
  13. Does the AI prefer building units at half costs?

    Hotfix 1.00.3 uploaded

    Tested the Hotfix with 1944 Bagration Scenario as Axis (first turn SU). Two things are to note. 1. The (SU) AI still tends to retreat first a few units before launching the assault. Not a big problem because this are only three or four Cavalry or Arti-Tank units. But still strange. 2. In some times the AI has an unit next to it's victim but moves before attack and loses the prepared bonus (I suppose there is one in AoC).
