Deltium (Allies) defeats Ubernaut (Axis +8) after 14 solid rounds.
First, I'd like to compliment Ubernaut for a very friendly game, and very professional interaction.
The Axis started the game with quick pressure on the Allies, and they quickly stacked Ukraine and Persia, with strong pressure on Russia quite early, will multiple ICs on the mainland producing tanks rushing to Moscow. Axis also invested in some bombers, which struck the Allies hard early-on with great success, prompting the Axis to send all of the their AA personnel back to basic training in total disarray. However, the Allies managed to recapture Africa swiftly and secure the Med, which allowed the Allies to sacrifice some Allied ground units to the Japanese, to reduce some pressure on Russia, as a temporary measure, in order to allow the economic engine of the Allies to hopefully contain the Axis thereafter. Axis pressure continued to intensify, as Germany managed to capture Caucasus, but a key inflection point occurred in the counter-attack, when the Allies were only hoping for a simple strafe, but it resulted in a top 25% outcome, and a large IPC exchange for the Allies. Coupled with the US Med fleet entering the South Indian Ocean and a new naval front in the Pacific for Japan, it became incredibly challenging for the Axis to advance further. Axis resigned after UK 14 (attached).
Again, Ubernaut is a very friendly and good player, and thanks for the game. Cheers.
