Recommended Posts

Baa Baa Black ? squadron was flying along on a classified mission when a fat juicy target was spotted and immediately attacked!  34 torpedo hits later the offending Queen Mary was sent to the bottom never to ship anything ever again  ?

And keepin em coming he did!!  3 more King George V and 5 Leander CL’s test the blockade in force in the Azores. A group of non combatants also tried to sneak past the blockade. The results went poorly for the enemy. 5 non combatants sunk all 5 CL’s sunk and 3 battleships heavily damaged all for the loss of 1 destroyer. 

The stalwart defenders of the island will soon be crushed under the might of the Great Western Alliance ?

Update. Those 3 heavily damaged King George V battleships are now critically damaged and unlikely to make home port again ?. The Baa Baa Black ? squadron back from some well deserved R and R will see to that??

we personally have not taken anything from the Portuguese. We’ve subjected both Portugal and Spain to some ? genetic experiments involving industry devouring ? but mainly we are denying the sea lanes to our enemies so our allies can do their thing. Not much at all ? move along nothing to see here ?

You obviously can’t read between the lines very well. That’s not what we said at all. Irish forces are all over Spain and Portugal like white on rice and there is absolutely zero they can do about it. They are welcome to try but we ? are very well prepared. ??

Btw those 3 offending battleships have met their doom. They are now partying with Davey Jones and his merry band. ?

they most likely won’t be the last to meet with him either. Keep me coming!! We’ve got plenty of ammo! ?

I don't have a cat in this fight, I'm just trying to follow it by reading the forum, which is hard when you're the only one posting. I gave up trying to follow it a while back, but dropped in to see what was happening. Not much apparently.

I assumed that the way you were talking about all the ships you were sinking, that you would be doing the same if you were fighting somebody else. Unless it's not going as well as what you think it should? You, or your allies, have done a naval landing in Spain/Portugal? Don't know why I even ask, I know that's something you won't tell.

Actually it’s going quite well. Aside from the loss of a single destroyer to naval gunfire and the normal losses of planes in air attack vs naval assets we are doing exceptionally well. The enemy won’t report that his ships are sinking almost as fast as he can build them. That’s never a good thing. ?. That he has chosen to bring a pop gun to a machine gun fight is beyond me but we will be more then happy to oblige ?

I'd like to hear from some other players, like Portugal and Spain. Are the Irish really supermen? Are the Irish forces all over "like white on rice?" If they are, I find it hard to believe that you can't do anything about it. Has he really conquered you both enough that you can't stop him? Maybe kryptonite is involved?

Don’t forget cutting off rail networks and large numbers of industries turned to dust. Which btw continues unabated. ? our allies to the east are cleaning the enemies clocks. MASSIVE amounts of AIR and ARM points gone. One enemy nation attempted to destroy an allied army with 3 separate attacks which all failed. 

As for the Azores. That campaign is not over but will be soon. Amphibious invasion is a little more difficult then just storming across Europe. But I might add that there is one major city that is being defended valiantly and has proved impossible to conquer and if we have anything to say about it will remain unconquerable. Might I also add that Spain and Portugal may be good fighting non human enemies but can’t figure us ? out. 

Might I also add that although the Azores is important it is far from a critical must have. There are other ways to bring forces to the front but you knew that right?  

As for doing something about it? They could if they so chose but that would mean giving too much of an advantage to their enemies to the east and north.

I got you riled up enough that you gave me an idea of what's going on in the game, which is what I wanted to know. Now, what's going on in the east? Who's fighting who?
