I agree, if they are going to do Axis vs Allies type of events like the current Japanese Threat, they need to give the Axis more planes so it's not such a lopsided fight.

 

The Italian air force was competent and could be included in the tech tree to help balance things out. Also might consider the Bulgarian air force and Finnish air force planes since they were also on the Axis side.

 

Another thing they could do is "Vichy France" where you could play French planes on both Allied and Axis sides. That would be an interesting twist.

 

Axis needs more GA...

That's what I was thinking! It would be cool if you could play the French GA (NC 1070) on either Allies OR Axis. The Axis version would be Vichy France on the German side.

 

I wonder if there was an Italian GA plane? Jellyfish, do you know?

Allies won today.

 

Axis started with some 68k lead I think.

^ added.  Lower populations and longer run times appear to heavily favor Allies.

Today...Axis starts with 50,400 points lead at 300000 base...but Allies won with ~40k lead.

 

...so can we come to the conclusion that Axis cannot win without something like 160k lead?

 

Last score taken 16 minutes before confrontation ends...no way Axis could make a comeback with a poorer GA fleet...

I decided to throw my alliance with Axis due to the huge advantage and was quickly upset with the small margin lead. Everytime I was on the other side it was always 160k advantage

There's no need to go for 3 crates if the lead is that small. Get two crates and stop playing.

You guys can't even follow the rules that you set for the game, and you wonder why players are leaving.  You seem to make them up as you go along.  The basic idea behind this Japanese Threat wasn't bad, but it was the shoddy execution that we have come to expect from the developers at Persha/Wargaming that has turned this into a joke.  I have stuck by this game, and spent quite a bit of coin on your products, but I have had it.  How naive of me to expect a minimum level of competency at Wargaming after all of these years. 

 

I am really starting to wonder if the people at Wargaming have even a basic understanding of their game.  They certainly must not play it.

Looks like the mathematics had been messed with again...

 

...and the result is not surprising...Also, it's a knockout, and the confrontation ended ~10 minutes early.

 

Last score I caught: 19 minutes to the third hour

 

Spoiler

 

When this one ends...we'll have history to look back to...

I think this event was a good idea, but, it needs to be tweaked.   More even sides, and an handicap system that is not broken for 1/3 of the event.
