Had a great team game vs the AI yesterday with General Zod. Was a lot of fun. AI seems thoroughly confused most of the time and made some huge miscalculations that allowed us as the Axis to pretty much steam-role the Allies. The AI also spent copious time and resources in purchases that didn't seem to make a great deal of sense nor help the Allied cause.
Lots of interest from lots of visiting players.
Couple of things to note....
After playing multiple games as the Axis one thing that jumps out is that the German Navy seems to have the ability to totally dominate the Atlantic. Britain really doesn't seem to stand a chance. The delay with getting anything going with Britain seems to give Germany the ability to do pretty much whatever it wants. Whether this is simply because the AI doesn't get aggressive enough, I'm not sure. But the Royal Navy definitely feels under represented.
The European Axis Minors are pretty ineffectual broken up into so many individual nations... they are pretty much time eaters as player nattions and don't add much to the game experience since you can neither buy much of anything with them nor accomplish anything militarily with them other than to reinforce the German front. Spend a great deal of time managing them to very little effect. Slows down the game significantly. Perhaps lumping a few of them together might make them powerful enough to add something to the experience.
Some of these observations might be purely because we have been playing the AI.... perhaps with a player vs player match we'd get a better feel for the balance and different strategies.
Those are the main things I've noticed. Other than that there are so many cool and fun things going on around this map that it'd be hard to list them.
Great work. A real treat to play and a stunning visual experience.
