Panpal (axis+9) defeats Dirty_Tripitz (allies) in a fun heavy tech game. Round one was incredible for axis as pretty much every battle went in their favour. However. UK got heavy bombers in round 1which seemed to balance the game. However, Germany, spent 40 ipc on round 2 to secure heavy bombers, thus allowing to easily sink the allied fleet. With those heavy bombers germans were able to sink two more US fleets and denying the allies the chance to land in Europe. In the meantime, US got also heavy bombers and allied strategic bombing greatly reduced germans income. Japan built 2 factories keeping Russia busy and some naval units to defend against the heavy bombers.Also both axis powers managed to research rockets and steel Russian income. Finally, UK managed to sink a huge Japan nany but Russia was left alone and fall. Allies try to build a strong air force and managed to sink a strong German fleet but axis had secured a high income and Japan was theatening West US so allies finally surrendered. I recommend a quick look at the save game to discover how much different and fun a game can be made when tech is researched early on. Long range aircraft and heavy bombers can wreak havoc against fleets. Overall I would like to congratulate my opponent. He was fighting an uphill battle from round 1, but he never complained about dice. Finally, I would like to thank Deltium for organising this tournament and I would suggest he should keep the price and have a drink with his wife, or donate it to the tripleA. I am looking forward to the next tournament
Panpal axis(+9) defeats QuarterMaster allies after a game that both players invested heavily in navies. Germany bought 2 trannies to strengthen the Baltic fleet. UK discovered Desroyer Bombardement and so starting investing in Destroyers. Germans built a carrier to defend the Baltic and started building subs to threaten the Uk navy. On round 5 they managed to discover super subs, thus putting increasing pressure on the Uk fleet which was forced to buy a carrier and more destroyers to strengthen its fleet leaving few ipc to spare on inf. On the Pacific US 0_1524511497076_triplea_Jap7.tsvg decided to build only navy to threaten Japan. However, Japan has managed to secure Asia territories, thus having a sufficient income to buy enough planes and naval units to deter the Us attack. It also discovered long-range aircraft enabling Jap planes to defend carriers and at the same time trade asia territories with Russia. Finally, Axis was stonger both in Baltic and in the Pacific while russia was left alone to defend itself. At this point the allies decided to surrender honourably even though they could have keep fighting for more turns. Overall it was a nice game were techs played a major rolle. So I would like to thank quartermaster for a fun and challenging game and deltium for organising a tech tournament.
@MetalKite - we have already launched this tournament, but if anyone falls away, you can be our first substitute !
