However the unrealistic scenarios of Revised is not as bad as of 1942. In one of the games I played in 1942 my opponent attacked my American fleet by a slightly weaker group of German subs and aircrafts. The dice went his way and the battle came down to a single German bomber vs 1 damaged BB and 8 transports. The bomber scored a hit and BB missed, which meant that 8 transports also sunk automatically. This is not "warships protecting transports" that 1942 advertises. If 1942 was realistic then the transports should have been able to escape or at least some of them while BB is fighting the bomber. With Revised I can take bad dice. But its win or die with 1942 sometimes. If only my BB had hit back I would have 8 transports (56 ipcs value) survived. A single die should not have this much power in a strategy game. In luck vs strategy spectrum, this makes 1942 more of a luck game than Revised is. There is no rule in Revised that is as ridicule as 1 aircraft or 1 warship can take out as many as infinite number of unprotected transport ships. But hey if people want to play 1942 over Revised then good for them. I am going to keep playing my Revised.
