Looks good but the Chinese and Japanese colours do need more differentiation.

  No kidding.  Other than that...looks okay.  I'll probably try it eventually.  Maybe even when it first comes out.

Looks great to me, looking forward to this one as I loved the first WarPlan.  "War in the Pacific map with an easier complexity level" sounds right up my alley.
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

I watched the stream and despite not buying Warplan Europe it really does look good. The clincher for me is proper fog of war mechanics with Warplan Europe lacked with the naval game. The Pacific game appears to have a really interesting unique approach involving codebreaking/counter intelligence  measures and spotting rules that should really ramp up the tension in the cat and mouse fleet operations in this theatre.

I would love for this to be a Day 1 purchase for me, but I'm gonna wait until I can use my Anniversary Coupon on it next year.  This years coupon expired unspent :( as there weren't any MG titles I wanted to pick up.  Also, and I thank you in advance, this will let you guys weed out all those nasty little bugs. :bd:

The Shrapnel game was, and is, an under-rated little gem. With a little tinkering with the victory conditions (available in the Shrapnel forums) it is a quick, simple and surprisingly historical simulation of the war in the Pacific theatre.  And a lot of fun.  Don't know if it is still available.  But I am happy I have a copy.

Strategy Gaming Dojo put out his first video of WarPlan Pacific in a "Let's Play/Tutorial" format.  He is the best in the business IMHO in making wargame vids to learn how to play a game.

https://youtu.be/M_L6W5dZZmc

What I can't figure out is how the heck he keeps all the game rules straight in his head. :nerd:  I mean the guy is concurrently playing WitE, WitE2, WitP:AE and now WP:Pacific!  And don't even ask me where he finds the time for all this!!

In the first WP:Pac video, he is pleasantly surprised at the aggressive moves of the Japanese AI.  I'm also tracking his WitP:AE playthrough and the WP:Pac Japanese quickly goes after areas the WitP:AE AI does not... 

He has an uncanny knack for making me purchase games he plays, and it looks like this will no be exception....

I saw that and am intrigued by the game, especially the logistics. Could be a real winner.

That and the hidden fleet and  intel/code encryption  mechanics are pretty unique.

Very impressed.

It's just the scale and AI capability I am waiting to evaluate....Strategy gaming dojo is indeed the acid test as far as I am concerned  :bd:

I just sort of clicked through the video without sound, but from the gist of what I saw I'm really liking the looks of the game.  Very boardgamey. 

This just moved to the front of my radar.
