Re: How to Play: Hearts of Iron IV

From my experience, it’s ultimately air that wins you naval battles. You want to have fighters and bombers flying over battles. Carriers seem to only be useful if you plan on fighting far away from your air bases.

Re: HOI4: Noob Fight

I wouldn’t wait until ‘40 to start building carriers. It takes years to make a single battleship or carrier and you want as many of those as you can get by the time the war starts.

Re: MOTE Fall Game: Round 2

So something came up this weekend that’ll have me traveling out of the country for a few weeks. I won’t be able to make tonight’s session and it highly likely that I won’t be able to make the ones after that either.

Re: July Game thread

I just want to point out (again) that the "no country can send volunteers to more than one war rule" is silly. I don't know what behaviour this rule was trying to address, other than making it impossible for SOV to send troops to two wars (thus punishing a relatively successful defense of Spain) an...

Re: June Game

I’d prefer to Siam to Manchukuo myself as well but both are good.
