    Cybvep, I seriously doubt that anything will be added to the current line of thoughts. For me, you can start updating right now.

You can't just lose hope and stop fighting, although some individuals might do so, when you're surrounded with enemies who wish your demise. There is no reason to not fight back, even if this might be pointless. Perfect example are Germany, who fought literally to the very end.
    Wat?

    You appear to both contradict, and support your statement there!

    If you can't just 'lose hope', when is something that is unachievable is pointless, then your implying you have to have hope, because you can't loose it! Oh my god, my heads is 'splodin'...

    The words of Gandhi apply a bit like;

    If one person doesn't have hope in a crowd of people with some hope, and that person convinces one of that crowd not to have hope, then the crowd as a whole has less hope. The person that became convinced to give up hope, thus also goes onto speak to others, lowering the hope of the crowd even more, until nobody believes in the possibility of something.

    At which point it truely is unachievable because nobody has the will to even attempt it.

    Attempting, even if the odds appear stacked against you still has some chance of success. Whereas if never attempted at all, you are bound to fail.


    EDIT: Of course the words weren't spoken with that meaning at the time, but one might attribute such meaning to them in terms of wisdom.

    If your a WH40000 guy then that guardsman has to be able to doublethink himself into believing him and his fellows can survive whatever horrors are before them so that he can do his duty while at the same time realising overrall his odds are as slim as a rake. You could say the rational thing would be to turn the lazgun on his own head and suffer not the tribulations of the xenos, traitors and the warp!

    Guys, this has nothing to do with the AAR... Save the debates about the importance and meaning of hope for PMs .

    Well.... if things get too hairy, you might consider not playing further. Update which cover like 1-2 months should suffice if we run into trouble. No point in losing too many units.

    -.-

    You're doing this on purpose... :-P

    Let me guess... The Allies decided it'd be a good idea to declare war on us? That or the US joined the Allies for the same effect.

    The allies and the Soviets then?

    Nah, it's not so hardcore . Sorry for the delay, but friends asked me to go for a drink. I will finish the update soon.

    EDIT: It's done. Check it here.

    Looking good so far, need to gain the momentum back in china though.

    Also saw that a swedish submarine group got two confirmed kills, one CL and the battleship KMS Schlesien

    Scandinavia is a big German mistake in general. They failed to make any significant gains there and still have to keep many divs in Denmark as a safeguard against the potential Allied invasion.

    China is one big problem. But hopefully they've overextended themselves now. An attack from the North may work? 17 CVL-s by the USN? Holy crap...
    Requesting help from an experienced HOI 3 player in improving my skills, so I may be able to do an AAR of my own, one day.

    The Italian offensive in North Africa certainly is a surprise. I wonder if they will manage to sustain it and eventually reach a worthwhile goal there. With the Allies roaming the Med freely, one might wonder if the offensive isn't just an elaborate trap of the Allies themselves.

    Spain joining the war on the Axis side. We'll have to wait and see if they really can contribute something to the effort or if they'll turn out to be a liability for the Axis. Their coastline is awfully long and I doubt that the Spanish can repel a concerted Allied landing operation in any place for long. This could be a second front which could eventually sap all Axis efforts in the east.

    The Euro-Axis haven't been successful at sea, either. Only had a brief glimpse at the list, but it certainly doesn't look impressive, especially not compared to our own tally.

    USN doesn't cause too much of a headache, really. They're heavy on light carriers, but lack escorts, which will result in more capital losses for them. They're even running out of names for them already, probably so that the population is less upset. Losing a carrier called Lexington is more of a psychcological problem than losing CV-34.

    Yeah, I don't think that they even managed to sink a single Allied capital ship. However, at least the Germans don't have to worry about 17 carriers .

    It's just one fleet carrier, the others are escort carriers. One CAG each only and with twice as many capitals as escorts. Another few attempts like this by the USN and things will look a lot better for us.

    It's just one port, they probably have more screening ships nearby or they are building them.

    However, China is much bigger problem IMO. If things continue to progress that way, then we may find ourselves embroiled in a war that will last as long as it historically did...

    Just what I thought! I've seen a 48 destroyer stack in a US port once that made me gulp, but 12CVLs...well new record there!



    If Franco takes Gibralter then the Axis might not be too bad afterall...but if the Brits and South Africans breakout of Gibralater than europe will be liberated in months. It's a really big pivot point for HPP. However the only ever Sea Lion I've ever seen with HPP was when the Spainish entered for the Axis, so who knows...If the Nazis go down in a blaze of fire with England, then we have a free reign in the Pacific

    Surely you meant 16 CVLs and 1 CV? Apparently Admiral Baltasar is not extremely worried about them.

    If Franco takes Gibralter then the Axis might not be too bad afterall...but if the Brits and South Africans breakout of Gibralater than europe will be liberated in months. It's a really big pivot point for HPP.

    Sea Lion doesn't sound likely. However, since the British are having trouble with the Italians in North Africa, the Axis may achieve sth there if the Spanish support them.

    EDIT: I'm wondering whether it would be prudent to adopt a defensive stance in the South, consolidate our position, let our divs regain ORG and then strike with our full might.
