  • Frankly, I was expecting a little more.

    Very well, since the Western Allies can do anything they want at any moment, and the Axis are in an immeasurably worse position than was historical, do you guys want to continue?
    I don't think the issue is in doubt any longer.

      And due to game mechanic we are not even on a Total War footing yet .

        In case you haven't figured it out yet you will never be at total war. We (the Axis) get to decide if you are ever going to get there and we decided right after your attack on us that you never were.

          That was the plan, and a breakthrough in Turkey would have made a real mess of things for you guys.

          We will use whatever we can to prevent the USSR from going to Total War, that's just the nature of the game. Sorry.

            How can you win without taking major cities and land ? If your plan is one of attrition you are on the wrong side.

            Love the fact the Fascists believe they are the innocent party in this war !

              Wargame rules not representative of real life? C'est la vie.

                We are the innocent party in the war between Germany and the USSR.


                I find it funny that you, who got half of Poland as a result of our stomping them to pieces then watched as France was crushed (while supplying us), then attacked us is pretending that you are the aggrieved party.

                        Wait, what? Are our Russian friends not telling us the whole story here? Was there a flip flop on their part?

                          • More than happy to argue about the history later.

                            What is clear, and actually stated by those belligerents, is that they are using their knowledge of the game mechanics to try to gain a superior position. The fact that they are still not achieving anything like their more ignorant historical counterparts did, speaks volumes .

                            Quite frankly I was expecting a decent fight . Lets hope their stated 500% improvement comes into play shortly, because their toothless bite is currently boring me .

                              A bright move, virtually guaranteeing you lose the game. Genius!

                                Yes, we also thought this. That's why you we didn't let you have a breakthrough in Turkey.

                                Obviously if we were going to have to fight on the Southern front, we wanted to have a Southern front which started in the Turkish mountains rather than the Georgian mountains.

                                Did you really think that we'd let the Allies lose Turkey?
