In an exceedingly long game jmpsmsh as Allies defeated Dirty_Tirpitz with Axis+8 after 30 rounds . Without a lot of online time this would not have been possible. Germany chose a strategy focused on a lot of land units, surrendering Africa early on. However they were able to push to Karelia from the start putting up a lot of pressure on Russia. Japan grew big on the other side of the world as well but surrendered a lot of fighters and bombers to the UK and US navy in an attempt to relieve the Allies' pressure on Europe / Africa. This resulted in Japan getting stuck on its way to push towards Moscow, giving the Allies enough time to slowly accumulate enough IPC to finally force back Japan from the main land. Hence Russia could gather its troops and direct them to the West, supporting UK and forcing the German army into Eastern Europe.
In a desperate attempt Japan turned towards Alaska, suddenly landing a lot of units on the almost vacant American continent. Caught by surprise the US found itself under heavy siege, sticking only to Washington. Supported by many British troops the Allies could get together just enough units to hold the US and the game.
With UK in the need to ship everything to Washington, the final push towards Germany got stuck and for many rounds it looked like a stalemate between over hundred German and Russian units in Easter Europe and Belorussia respectively.
Over the next few rounds the US could finally consolidate whilst taking some of the Pacific islands from Japan. Thus UK could once again turn towards Germany, forcing back their army due to the threat of a one-two-punch and inevitably deciding the game while the US kept Japans forces at bay. Eventually as the Allies grew strong enough the British attacked Berlin firstly to weaken their forces so that Russia could sack the Germans.
Thanks a lot to Dirty_Tirpitz. I indeed enjoyed playing with you and the friendly atmosphere as well as this highly interesting and good game!
