    It will be an MP game, with me playing Germany and Mett the United States. Other than that, I'll remain a little vague and mysterious for the time being...

    I'm looking forward to seeing how well the game goes with a human Germany, an AI SU, and a non-combatant human USA gifting units to the Russians.
    No matter how long he puts it off the US will go to war with Germany eventualy and because of the manpower advantage America will win unless they are horribly managed.

    No. While the two countries will eventually fight, Yogi may very well defeat the Soviet Union and/or the UK before US war entry. If either case is true, he is still in a position to win the game.

    How he manages his belligerance (release of Belarus or the Ukraine? policy in the Balkans?) determines when US war entry will be, and therefore how much of a chance he has of defeating one or both of his two historical opponents of the early war.

    I expect to see Mettermrck fight a proxy war, using significant industrial power to give his undeclared allies more fighting strength.

    Well, I won't give much away, but as Yogi says, it is a genuine MP game between us, with sessions spaced out enough to enable us to continue our other projects. As those in Eagles know, I'm currently forgoing computer games for Lent, and I have until Holy Thursday, about 8 days to go, so game start will come soon. I appreciate all the enthusiasm so quickly.

    your a brave man that is something I could never do "bows down and kisses Mettermrck's feet"

    This is guaranteed to be a fantastic AAR and I can't wait for Easter so we can get this thing rolling

    So I looked at the first line of the first post without seeing Yogi's name, thought, "Great, another German AAR," and skipped to the end...

    ... then I realised it was a collaboration between the "twin stars of the Empire".







    I loved Advantages without Obligations, and I follow Eagle and the Lion whenever I have the time. I'll REALLY be looking forward to this product of my two favourite writAARs.

    (Yogi, I hope you'll forgive me for cheering on Mr. Mett "Bastion of Democracy" Merck! )

    My question is, how do these gentlemen intend to roleplay their leaders? In WtICG, Yogi presented us the frightening prospect of a what a sane Hitler could accomplish (this despite my college mentor's cogent argument that a sane Hitler would never have been driven to attempt those things) and in Aw/oO, Mett showed us how badly the Americans could botch things at the outset.

    So, are the starting governments as per normal (Hitler and Roosevelt)? Will decisions be made based on what Yogi and Mett think should be done or based on what those men would/did/might have done?

    RPing is a difficult thing with historical persons. Given that we know what decisions were done historicaly, doing exactly the same could be considered the only way to Role Play the leaders plausibly. I will content myself with avoiding doing things that Hitler (or whomever ends up leading Germany) would never have.

    BTW, I never considered my WTICG Hitler to be "sane", but more rational and calculating than the real one. In fact he was one sick SOB (consider the Stalin captivity episode etc).

    Ok, granted. For 'sane' read 'marginally more sane'. That suit better? ;-)

    Well, for myself I will rule out an Advantages timeline, though similarities may arise. Thus don't necessarily expect a 3-term Lindbergh administration or a quick war with Mexico, though who knows? But complacency is the halmark of 1930s US, hence my use of Benny Goodman to Yogi's more martial tune.

    Perhaps "sensible"?

    Yogi, would that exclude things such as liberating puppets on the Eastern Front? If it doesn't, and if it's coupled with a historically isolationist Mett, then I fear for the world.
