@Schulz said in Why there is no two ocean going USA in any WWII map?:
I don't think any placement limit would be needed, if Russia and UK is designed to doomed to fall without US help in Europe that would already prevent the US commit only Pacific Front.
The şssue is I don't want to see an US that commiting only Atlantic is the best. No idea how can it be achieved.
I don't understand how I cannot get the message, so I will try to be more vague.
You have two possible ways to go, in this case Atlantic or Pacific. You can try to make both ways closely exactly as good a pick, but this would be very hard to balance (and even if you balance it perfectly, there is no way people would see it or agree to it; and even if they agree, most people will just go the easiest way, if that is anyways one of the optimal choices, so probably full Atlantic). Instead, you can make it so that one of these ways is preferable, for a number of reasons, to the other way. Then, once you have picked or recognized what is, in absence of placement limits, the preferable way to go, you can set placement limits in a way that going fully in that direction would be inefficient (or even impossible) enough so that people will have to go the other way too. It doesn't matter which way, just the placement limits have to be harsh enough in the preferable direction.
Meaning that if, as you said, America would prefer going Atlantic, then just have enough placement limits there to limit that, tho this is easily going to be ahistorical, as the east was by far the most productive part, but, on the other hand, Pacific being the preferred way would be possibly even more ahistorical, as there was really nothing of much value in there until reaching the western Dutch East Indies.
Of course, it would be also possible to make Japan so weak that Americans simply can breeze through it with a minor part of their total productive power, so that they would go Atlantic for the remaining part, but, in this case as well, going Pacific would need to be preferential (which probably implies making a bunch of Pacific islands way overvalued).
