I agree that it could use more naval battles. It's hard to win with US if you try a Pacific war, but sometimes it's fun trying.

Round 1 moves by axis can stop it and make allies/usa go Atlantic. Sometimes it the dice to-
I dont like the idea, the game is not broken as is.
Is there room for changes and different objectives, Yes, But you need to be able to edit the board/rules and set up.
Maybe we could get a permanent post on the info you provided, in the hopes it drums up some more interest & this info doesn't end up on pg 4 by next year!

I realized for this to work Japan should not be able to attack Pearl Harbor since in the real war they did not have a second attack. It is Spring 1942 and Japan already did their attack few months earlier. Probably then we should have less of UK Navy's presence there.
Don't get me wrong. I am not saying the game is unbalanced or anything. I only want to see more historically accurate game. Maybe slightly in favor of Allies in Revised Edition and in favor of Axis with 1942 edition. I loved that we actually have battle over Atlantic in 1942 edition. But that one really eliminates Pacific War. I have played only few games and I dont see how USA can afford to put any ship there. Then this means maybe we need a stronger UK fleet in Atlantic.
Right now we pretty much have European theatre as being close to history in Revised edition and may be somehow Africa, too.
1942 added battle over Atlantic to that.
If we have Pacific War and Japanese-Russian non-agression pact (at least for the first few rounds of the game), then we can have a complete WW2 game.
Does Anniversary edition make it possible to have all of those major theatres btw? I am sure they don't have Pacific dominance requirement but may be the set up there makes the Allies player to stay in the Pacific. I assume you must have Battle of Atlantic since subs have the same rules as in 1942 and I read somewhere that presence of China as another power forces Japan to focus on them and not attack so much to Russia which in a way you have the non-agression pact.
