The Empire of the Blazing sun took on the bear tonight and while the game was on a knifes edge the Russians decided survival was more important and ran up the white flag.
Some horror rolling by the Russians who threw 20+ dice at my land squid three times only to pull off a single critical. I have never seen so many 1s & 2s. Turn 3 could have gone either way but after MrGTST called it we drew cards... just to see... and I pulled two thunderous volleys.
Posthumous Award for Valor goes to my Uwatsu unit who not only dodged a full gun volley from the gunships but also raced in to knock off the Carriers ablative armor opening up the attack run for the torpedo bombers who inflicted a triple critical.
Under the recent rules update this win allows me to claim another land, and I'm being a jerk and have taken the Leeward islands. The last Industrial site on the map. Map is updated, I'll update the ladder tomorrow as there are a few changes to process.
