48 2/11/2017 10:17:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hello David,
The last file you sent me does not match your ACTS..in ACTS you rescinded the replacements then used it for moves and another attack. The file you sent me has none of the moves or the attack marker. Requesting a correct VASSAL file please. I'd like us to be on the same "reality."
Cheers, Greg

1 2/2/2017 10:11:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Message Welcome to Round Two of the BPA VII Paths of Glory Tournament!

You've been through this before so you probably know what to do: I'll be your game moderator and should be your first point of contact for any issues related to this match. My overriding priority for this match is to make sure it's fun and fair for both players. That means sportsmanship is expected at all times and issues are to be resolved equitably.

Contacting the Moderator: I am based in central US (US CST, GMT -6) and will generally respond to all match questions within 24 hours. I strongly recommend you e-mail me directly at "mdauer92@yahoo.com" referencing your match # when you do so. (ACTS does not send the moderators all posted messages and as we all have multiple games to moderate, we can not be counted on to read through the logs of individual games with any regularity.) Please also put your question/issue in the log and I'll make sure I post a response there as well. If I do not respond within 48 hours, please escalate to one of the other GMs (gregorit@yahoo.com or paulhubbard@hotmail.co.uk). If I am going to be unavailable for more than 48 hours, I will alert you ahead of time, please contact Tom or Paul in my absence.

Issue Resolution: If either player has a concern about a particular ruling or resolution I make, feel free to escalate to the other GMs. I will also reach out to Tom or Paul if there's something I'm not sure of. Please remember that the ACTS logs are viewable for all, direct exchanges with your opponent are obviously permitted but GMs will view the ACTS logs as the authoritative record of the game.

Getting Started:

1. Introduce yourselves and set expectations regarding your availability and game pace.
2. Agree on the scenario. The default is the WBC Historical Scenario as described on the POG Tournament Page and I recommend you stick to that if either player is 'new'.
3. Agree on usage of supply warnings. They are strongly recommended.
4. There is no mandatory usage of a particular PBEM tool. VASSAL is recommended but not necessary and exchanging game logs is also optional.
5. Bid for sides. For this tournament, initial bid is by random roll, which follows this intro. Once this is done, switch sides in ACTS if necessary.
6. Draw cards. CP will then kick off the fun by rolling the turn 1 MO and playing their first card (Guns of August).

The official launch date is Saturday, February 4th but feel free to start your match immediately.

Michael
