Hi all,

I have played this game many times now and feel there is quite a balance in favour of the British. Whenever I play Germans I have tried to load cities with German defences, tried spreading them out all over the board, pretty much tried all tactics I think, but cannot win against my usual DITD opponant.

We use some of the advanced rules, 8 bombs, weather change, but not number 3a or 3b. Extra fuel for the fighter, the cloth of death or whatever it is called. (he avoids this by flying low and in order to get 4+ points on target).

He uses the eight bombs for the Mossie and arrives before the bomber, takes out the airfield and all defences with the bomber flying either behind or alongside and then bombs the unprotected city.

He doesn't like flying over cities to get to his target and usually goes the North Sea route as he can spend more time in the sea more or less unchallanged.

Has anyone got a plan in mind to counteract the above?

PS. I forgot to mention I have read all the posts here, but they mostly from 2007 so perhaps new thoughts will be available.

If you are reading this RG look the other way when I get replies.

Have a quick look at pilot games' website (or go to "http://www.duelinthedark.com") and have peek at some of their "Proposals for the structure of the base objects" in the downloads section. There are five in all. Maybe it could help a little.

The five links are:

Here is what number five looks like:

Use smokescreens. Lots of them. They make GRMs much more durable AND give some city protection.

Concentrate searchlights/flak/smokescreens in some places, cover empty space with radar stations - fighters should defend those.

If your opponent uses the same scheme all over again, you should win every game, since you should be able to outguess him.
