The espionage war is fun!
I think we agree on keeping the espionage war fun and relevant. I am fine with what you suggest. Sounds as if it will be done by edit and will not need rule adjustments. Do I have that right?

Re: Reforming AoD espionage

There is nothing you propose here that I can't accept. I do have a few comments. We can edit:- The upkeep of spies The chance of spies finding intelligence (unhelpfully vague, but better then nothing) Chance of a defending spy detecting an invading spy The cost of spy missions The success chance of ...

Re: 'Kriegsplan Orange' - 9 player online HoI2: AoD campaign (1936)

I think this was the most interesting and fun campaign we have had yet. You are doing a tremendous job on documenting it. It is such fun to read. I find myself wondering how it is going to turn out even though I was there. Great job!

Re: France rule

1. Allied players can load up France between sessions to monitor the country. No changes to the AI’s research or build queue are allowed. Edits may be requested to correct trades. I assume this was meant to apply only untill France has been defeated in Europe. Free France in its colonies should be ...

Re: Rule 25 - Unit trading or selling via is banned

I am not at all in favor of allowing unit trading or selling. There just are too many opportunities for exploits and it changes the historical flavor of the game, IMHO.

Re: INCREASED OPTIONS FOR ASIAN GROUND UNIT DEPLOYMENTS

The above rule for Asian unit deployment as well as the rule for ship movement have been updated. A special thanks goes out to Boney for his work on transferring the maps to the approved rules thread.

Re: INCREASED OPTIONS FOR ASIAN GROUND UNIT DEPLOYMENTS

I think this makes little difference to the proposal where those become available after France has fallen. Axis may declare war on Egypt before France has fallen, so in fact this may allow the Indian divisions to enter those areas sooner and this opens up the Med islands aswell which otherwise woul...

Re: INCREASED OPTIONS FOR ASIAN GROUND UNIT DEPLOYMENTS

1. Initial deployment zone for the Indian 24+1 is the whole world apart from Europe and Tunisia, Algiers, Morocco and Libya. 3. After France has fallen and Japan is in war with Allies, Europe becomes available for 12+1 divisions out of the 24+1. Totally agree. 2. After France has fallen, Tunisia, A...

Re: INCREASED OPTIONS FOR ASIAN GROUND UNIT DEPLOYMENTS

Guess we could specify we keep allowing Egypt/Sudan in North Africa as currently yet ok to me those restrictions too Egypt and Sudan are of course part of North Africa. However, I really was only thinking of Libya, Tunis, Algeria and Morocco. Basically the regions you left out of deployment possibi...

Re: Current balance and update to Imp

Our last game was very unusual and I doubt we will ever have another quite like it. IMHO, it was the most interesting and fun campaign yet. Despite all the strange happenings, it was very well balanced. I particularly liked the fact that resources played such an important role. I thought for sure th...

Re: INCREASED OPTIONS FOR ASIAN GROUND UNIT DEPLOYMENTS

Initial deployment area for the Indian 24+HQ division is the whole world apart from continental Europe. I can agree to all except the above. I am on board if we change this to read as follows: Initial deployment area for the Indian 24+HQ division is the whole world apart from North Africa and conti...

Re: INCREASED OPTIONS FOR ASIAN GROUND UNIT DEPLOYMENTS

I mean Philippines and Indonesia are removed from the allowed territory where the bulk of the Indian/Chinese armies may enter. Ah, now I understand. Thanks for clarifying. That should be enough of a nerf to allow the Indian exp.forces to have no restrictions after France has fallen. They are going ...

Re: INCREASED OPTIONS FOR ASIAN GROUND UNIT DEPLOYMENTS

Jar, I am confused by your apparently contractionary statements quoted below. Indonesian islands and Philippines are removed from the allowed territory for the Chinese/Indian armies. Removal of Indonesia will apply additional pressure on the Indian expeditionary force, using it in Europe or Africa w...
