Japan is impotent, they need to expand to help their war effort but they don't. They also prefer not to send any units but infantry into Korea to help quell the Chinese. 3 land fabs is not going to get it done. Never seen them have success in any game I have played.

Oh ans one more thing I would like to add: Japan declared war on The US (I was the US) in my game tonight -new patch- and immediately offered a peace treaty, they are way too weak in this game. China was steamrolling them. Out of the 50 or so games I have never seen Japan do any expanding.

I sent a save game for this. The date in game is December 13th 1941, Japan offered a treaty to me (I am playing as the US) a day or so after December 7th 1941, hope it helps.

The Pearl Harbor then Peace is what I see in most of my USA games. Normally, Japan and the US have pretty good relations. The event forces war on 12/7/41, but the situation is normally so good between the two, that peace happens nearly immediately. Playing the USA, I can nearly always get great relations with all of the Axis--and most of the world--well before 1941.

With Japan, I usually sell them ALL my old stuff (Inf, Engs, etc.) and buy licenses for German and Japanese material, build it and send it to them.

That is normally the only way they take out China. Why?

...Easy. Japan takes out China, then DoW's the US in Dec. 1941. I 'liberate' China for the US afterwards. All those lovely populations, but no bad-boy for declaring war on China.

yeah, I'm a bastard when I play. If I could only beef up the Germans to the point they take out the UK, then the party starts.

The "Pearl Harbor then Peace" issue really kills the Pacific theater. I just wish Japan could be scripted to make a huge naval fleet at Truck Lagoon, then perhaps invade New Britain, maybe establish a big base at Rabaul? [_]OT :lol:

Bump? Japan declares war, then makes peace? There is almost never a pacific theater with the way Japan is working right now. They are too weak, they can't even deal with China much less fight on another front?

Any word on this issue?

I see some of the issues causing the relations to go out of balance. We'll be looking into it further.
