First off, this game is pretty normal, with everything set to normal, except a slight edge given to the AI for FOW. I feel that the game is balanced pretty well, and seeing as how I have a hard time beating it already, I don't feel that Athena needs any help.
My plan is a change from what I've tried to due before, and it's one born out of frustration. It seems that I just never have enough people to find and destroy Washington, so every force I get will be sent upstate to deal with him, and they won't leave until the main US army is destroyed.
I feel that there is no sense in trying to fight in more that one theater if I don't have control of the first one. It might be a bit gamey, but there my forces and I can do with them what I want!
Anyways, it's June now, and nothing major is going on. Howe and his army come a bit early, and get sent up to Cambridge to take out a small force as well as keep it from turning into a hangout for an enemy force later on.
Howe's fleet moves to Halifax to wait until the new recruits are sent over, while the small fleet that was in Boston moves to Philly to take out anything trying to leave.
Carleton and his force moved down from Montreal to take Ft. Ticonderoga, Dunmore is moved to Norfolk...everything else is quiet.
