343 2/10/2017 10:38:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message My problem is I didn't strategically play 1-OPs as you did to save my reinforcement cards - I drew too many on Turn 1. Live and learn...

Other than that though, I don't think I made too many mistakes. But you saw the edge and wisely took off. This is why I did my best to keep you out of Brussels!

Good luck going forward. Perhaps we play again someday. :-)
342 2/10/2017 10:36:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message Dear Frederick

Thank you for the game. Yes it is now a bit pointless as the CP have to play a move maybe SR an AH army to the West while I will get the opportunity to play my Repl points

Yes you played far to many ops during mobilisation while you need to play events and ALL reinforcement cards. CP must reach Total War asap and mobilize all its units

Thanks again
341 2/10/2017 10:32:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message OK Nick, I think I am going to resign here. I don't think it will be much fun for either of us if I stick around for a one-sided push from this point on.

I am not as experienced as you, but I have played enough to know I played pretty sloppy at times, and I can see what is coming. The RP balance will not likely be restored, and you have cracked the line 3 years ahead of schedule.

If you disagree, let me know please. Otherwise, it has been fun, and I wish you well in the remainder of the tournament.

All RU units attacked this turn may retreat before combat. This must be announced before flank attempts, play of combat cards, and die rolls. No combat resolution takes place. The RU unit(s) must retreat 1 space. Full strength CP units may advance. Forts and non-RU units in space are still attacked. Aborted CP attacks still counts for MO purposes.

Message from Central Powers:

Game is about over, though it can still go on a while I guess. Not getting reinforcements early (due to mismanagement of my Mobilization hands) was the key factor on my end, I think.

265 2/9/2017 6:49:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message It's not really your fault - like I said, I missed it, and this is just the nature sometimes of playing on ACTS.

OK, FR (3) (4) 5 in Verdun, and FR 1 2 10 in Nancy after move.
264 2/9/2017 6:44:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message Ok I will try to be explicit although in message 243 NANCY as NANCY is not shorthand I don't know how else to write it

So in VERDUN I have FR 5 (4) (3) - 3 armies of which 2 inverted
263 2/9/2017 6:42:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message I corrected myself. The issue (and it's not really an issue so much as it is my adjustment difficulty) is that your ACTS verbiage and shorthand is new to me, so I am often not catching things.

262 2/9/2017 6:41:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message But it's not only the map FREDERICK that is the problem

Message 243 clearly states with capital letters NANCY and u claim it does not
261 2/9/2017 6:40:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message I see now that you meant the corps in Nancy to die - I mis-read.

So, before your move I have...

VERDUN - FR3, FR4, FR5

AP:

-1 total: Rape of Belgium

CP:

+ 3 total: Reichstag Truce, Belgrade, Lodz

So, that is +2 net, which means we are at 12 VP, not 11. If we take into account the 1 VP bid, it is 13 VP...but I don't count that until the end of the game.
