Axis & Allies is a classic game of war, economics, and global strategy. Victory goes not only to the team that conquers its opponents on the field of battle, but also to the individual player who seizes the most enemy territory.
I could see it as a move to lure the USA into spending more on a Pacific campaign. Taking heat off of Germany is a good thing. You'll also save some assets from counterattack.
I'm sure this has been gone over though. Thoughts?
If the Allies aren't pressing you, then you have nothing better to do with 2 figs 1 bom 1 btl 1 dest 1 car 1 sub.
As for luring the Americans, what if they aren't lured? That means one extra fig against Germany at the least.
I would ignore Pearl in some circumstances, but the reason would be a lot of Allied pressure on SZ60 so I need to keep the BB at home or something to that effect.
Heck just pull it back to the West Coast. Run the shuck-shuck via WUS, WCA, ECA and you can keep Japan "honest" for free. Sneak in a TRN here and there maybe...
When you get a chance to sink boats at little risk you must take it.
My strategy calls for "playing into the Britain's hands". Britain wants to divert Japanese resources from elsewhere, but conversely, the British must commit large resources to defend India, which in turn takes pressure off of Germany - which is one primary goal.
If National Advantages are being used (I've been tinkering with the list I submitted a while ago) then I attack Pearl Harbor in order to divert resources away from aircraft production (which the US promptly delivers to the USSR [Lend-Lease]). Mind you, in the National Advantages I use to conduct such an attack; Japan uses one of its specific ones to help give it the advantage for the early period of gameplay.
