Hmm I suppose that makes sense about taking the second cp. I just worry that being passive gives my opponent a chance to mass units up (2 Arty's and a recon isn't all that expensive) that could slowly start picking off my units. I took the second cp to try to force him to move quickly before he had a chance to build up a force again, and then I started sending aircraft to force him to make AA's which I was less worried about. That was my train of thought anyway.
But what you're saying is that the resources I was using to take the second cp should have been used for more defense? Maybe a fighter instead of 2 infantries?
And good call about that left resource, I should have sent a recon or something over there once I was comfortable in mid.
It's funny to me that I was worried about being too timid when in fact I may have been too bold
Thanks for the advice.
