I know in previous versions like Semper Fi or Vanilla it was common that Japan gets beaten by China, but I have not seen it happen until now in FTM.
I played a few games before and I always saw Japan conquer China before 1940, but I just started a new game as Germany and I saw Japan barely knocking out Shanxi before getting pushed back and then a long stalemate in Northern China. I started a new game and the same thing happened again.
I though this problem was fixed a long time ago.
What is wrong with Japan AI again?
