377 5/15/2024 12:22:00 AM Jan-Apr 1944 Japanese Play Future Offensive card as Event #64: 2 / Weather: Halsey's Typhoon
Allied Offensive is canceled. All units are placed back at their starting locations. The Japanese player may reduce one full strength Allied CA or DD naval unit (Japanese player choice) that was activated for the canceled Offensive. This can only reduce, not eliminate, the naval unit. If none of the specified naval units are available, there is no additional effect. Draw one Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

376 5/14/2024 9:37:00 PM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message Desperate times! Leave it like that, I'll fix with HQ move or something...

375 5/14/2024 6:58:00 PM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message Well I think it dies if it’s already reduced, and flips if full strength. But, damn, thought Okinawa was in range….
Will re-eval when I recover from flight…..
374 5/14/2024 5:51:00 PM Jan-Apr 1944 Japanese Message Well, I guess first they'd suffer a step loss, and then next turn they'd be fully eliminated if an HQ didn't move closer. I just want to make sure I've understood correctly how this all works.
373 5/14/2024 5:49:00 PM Jan-Apr 1944 Japanese Message Hey man, sorry my message could have been clearer. You're not attacking Taiwan, only Okinawa and Iwo Jima, and the move is definitely legal. My only question is what happens to the unit in Okinawa (or, hypothetically, Taiwan) at the end of the turn, since as far as I can tell that section of the map is out of range of either CPac or SW Pac HQs. My understanding is that if you're not within supply range of any Allied HQ then the unit dies at the end of the turn, is that right? This was my rationale for leaving Okinawa and Taiwan uncovered by AZOI.
372 5/14/2024 8:33:00 AM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message Will check when I get home. Long airplane ride this AM?
Am I attacking Taiwan? I thought Iwo and Okinawa. I think Okinawa in range?
371 5/14/2024 3:12:00 AM Jan-Apr 1944 Japanese Message Hey, help me out with something: aren't Okinawa and Taiwan out of range of all Allied HQs? In other words, that Marine division will be eliminated at the end of the turn unless you redeploy one of your HQs forward? Or am I missing something...

1) I'm sorry for forgetting to post a file for the umpteenth time.

2) I think in BH(A) Dacca the A/N attack achieved an automatic reduction against JP 25th Army, which rolled a 4 and didn't reduce the British 33rd Corps, so I think you have an extra ground rep you can place.

327 4/12/2024 4:29:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Japanese Message Haha, the one thing I have really learned from you is not to take EOTS or any other game too personally--though while I have absorbed the lesson intellectually it will take me a long time to reach your level of zen!

More than mere lack of interest, Philippe's post and Mark's follow-up re: the BPA final reminds me that at the highest levels players treat this game like chess or Go in the subtlety of their strategies, while I'm just playing toy soldiers. Little wonder nobody wants to help tinker around with a simple scenario, they are trying to push the limits of possibility within the system to win amazing games!

Anyway, I think we should press on, but the deafening silence isn't particularly encouraging. :)

For some reason your .vsav didn't include my previous move, so I posted a new file which includes the big fleet redeployment to Port Arthur. Still need to figure out what I'm doing for this last card!

Doesn't look like there's a flood of interest in this scenario on CSW haha...
