Link up A&A Pacific 1940 and Europe 1940, and you've got Axis & Allies Global 1940.

Option #2 with interceptors firing at 2.

Undeniably the CORRECT choice.

Option #47 with interceptors firing at 2.3.

Undeniably the CORRECT choice.

Larry has obviously spoken on this, it will probably remain at #2- which is probably the safest choice.

Interceptors at 2??? Are you kidding me??? Nobody would SBR. At least now you will see some SBRs.

If after some playtesting there reamains to be no SBRs going on I think the only way to help this is to go back to Option #1 but allow the inoperable ICs to build inf and mech- otherwise I think it becomes too overbearing on players and SBRs will tend to wack things out strategically.

You act like interceptors at 2 is some insane idea; that is how it has been the WHOLE TIME until a couple weeks ago.

Interceptors at 1? Are you kidding? No one will intercept! At least with interceptors at 2 people would intercept.

Option 2 without interceptors at 2 greatly overstates the historical effectiveness of SBR in reality in terms of effect on production, and the balance considerations of the newfound overpowering of SBR's won't be seen until it is too late to fix.

Interceptors should shoot at 2.

Escorts should shoot at 1, UNLESS they are allowed to break free of the bombers and attack enemy interceptors, and then they shoot at 2, however, this is at the expense of the defender being able to pick the losses, the fighters can no longer absorb the interceptors damage.

That's the way to do it.

I agree. Interceptors at "1" if they hit bombers first. Interceptors at "2" if they hit the escorts.

What if the interceptor could choose which target to intercept? He could choose the escorts if he wanted to roll at "2" or choose the bombers and roll at "1"

choice is good.
