Tournament of Champions (Season 4) for AA 50 Anniversary '41 version
@icelander Haha, my steamroller is in the shop. I think the wrecking ball will be more fun,
redrum (Allies) wins over blackskull (Axis) at the end of round 5.
Early in the game Germany came under strong pressure due to very bad fighting from the Luftwaffe as well as the infantry loosing several battles where the enemy were greatly outnumbered. As a consequence Japan focused their attention on Europe, setting up military facilities in East Indies and Indies, taking on more risk in the pacific sea... In the end the Japanese air force caught the US navy by surprise taking out all surface ships and plans, leaving a sneaking sub force, which against all odds a few hours later took out a celebrating Japanese Navy.

@prastle Thanks for an excellent game! It was a pretty close game and could probably go on a number of rounds longer but I think Axis does have a slight advantage in position and need to keep the tourney moving.
Allies went for a more balanced strategy with US going Pacific to try to pin down Japan and take out their navy. Germany played pretty aggressively and built a large airforce to pressure Russia and the UK. Not very many large battles and mostly just positioning and trading territories. Probably the biggest turning points for the Allies were a battle in the South Pacific in round 4 as the US tried to take out part of the IJN and battle in round 7 as the UK tried to break the IJN screen protecting their main fleet off the coast of Japan. If either of those went in the Allies favor then it could have been a different game.
@redrum 100% agree your sub death was a bit of a game changer. Thanks for the great game. I am sorry that I find PBEM not my thing
