You lack honour, Scamp-San
I stay in the Japanese corner
Your honour demands you commit hara-kiri!
Japan does hold the most industrialized and manpower-heavy parts of China, so all is not lost yet. I just wish they'd give up on Australia for now and focus on China.
From what I understand the manpower in China is meaningless unless Japan is not a war, which this scenario forces upon all comers. It is that way for all island nations, again from what I understand.
Yes. It's a stupid game rule (for instances, the vast manpower provided by British India cannot be modelled in game). Has that been fixed in HoI3?
Actually, you can fix that issue yourself. Look for a file called "japanmanpower.txt" in the events folder. If you delete the "ai_only" flag, japan gets manpower for territories on the mainland via event. There's also a corresponding event taking manpower away in case those provinces are lost. You can use that as a template for the British getting manpower from India, etc.
And the French bet seems to be paying off.
I'm not quite sure what we are betting for, or when the deadline for the end of the game is, but I'm betting FRANCE to be the clear dominat0r.
Bragging rights I suppose and I think it'll be going until 1964.
I bet on France from the beginning so I'll have more bragging rights.
Don't worry, I have the prize all planned out
Yeah it's in your first (un-updated two months) post. We get a "brand new pair of nothing."
I say we, I'm staying in Russia to the bitter end. Not one step back!
In my stupid parallel run, France is winning against Germany, which means France will have very strong industrial might to dominate Eurasia.
Update XII - July 1, 1941 - January 1, 1942
As I expected Argentina gets wiped out by the US. So lets move on and not cry for Argentina.
At this point, pretty much all of Europe is under France's control. Only the UK, Gibraltar, and parts of northern Russia remain. Russia has pretty well collapsed, so they should be gone soon. For some reason France hasn't advanced along the Mediterranean coast and is instead only advancing down the Nile.
French forces have advanced into southern Sudan and western Ethiopia, and now have a border with Gabon.
Now, lets get to the real excitement in this update. Japan just smashed through the Chinese lines in the last six months. By my count they lost one province to China, and took 27, for a net gain of 26. The red line on the map shows where Japans border was last update. Just when it looked like Japan was starting to falter, they surprised everyone, especially the Chinese. France continues to push through Persia, and has now reached the border of Afghanistan, so expect them to soon be into India. India has managed to kick Japan out of southern India, and continues to hold them back in Burma. And except for one province in Tibet, the Indian and Chinese borders has not changed.
Well, my bet is well and truly lost unless the French channel their inner Confederates (and even
that might not be enough to save Russia).
Is there just one British division in all of Africa? In ....*tries hard* ... Djibouti?
Djibouti, but close enough. Anyways, seems like Mengkuko (sp?) was formed. Some things never change...
Now it is time for the Americas to shine, freedom, American Badass, USA USA, patriotic neologism, et cetera.
Oceania versus Eurasia Versus East Asia is almost complete.
Well with France instead Russia yes, if you can trust what the Party tells you anywa- *dragged to Ministry of Love*
I think France will soon run out of manpower, thats when its Golden Empire will come crumbling down
of course having manpower or not, Africa is still going blue
Who'll overtake it though? If the US don't make a landing then India, China, and Japan will be fighting mostly amongst themselves letting France have a breather.
It'll either be a easy US conquest or an interesting Japanese-French slugfest the way I see it.
America vs. France is inevitable.
