547 3/14/2017 10:01:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message OK Guy, thanks for the tips, they make sense.

Let Tom know the outcome and I will do the same.

Good Luck!

546 3/14/2017 5:54:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message We just tell the moderator that the game is done and the outcome.

Here are some suggestions for you for future games. Paths of Glory is a complicated game and I feel I still have a lot to learn myself.

1) Play Entrench turn 2 or 3 as the Central Powers. Without trenches, you lost your territory in France and Belgium.

2) Replacement card plays are often better than reinforcements if you have a bunch of losses in the eliminated box. If you have a 3 or 4 OP card, you get more out of it as a replacement than you do as a reinforcement, especially the Austrian reinforcement cards.

3) If you are depleted in the reserve, build two reduce corps instead of one full corps. That helps avoid permanent loss of units. You can later flip those reduced corps in subsequent replacement rounds.

4) You played aggressively on the western front. That is not necessarily bad, but you got caught in a high attrition war and I think that favors the allies who have better replacement values on their cards.

5) Avoid stack match-ups on the western front where two full strength FR/BR armies can attack a reduced German army or an army with a corps. The 6A column will do 4LF or 5LF two thirds of the time. That means a stack like that which described will usually take 1.5 or 2 replacement points of damage. Look at damage based on replacement point costs to the power, not loss factors.

You will notice that I often attacked leaving out my reduced armies. It is better for me to attack in the 6A column than the 9A column if a 4 or 5 LF will not do more damage to my units than a 3 LF result.

Example: if two full French armies attack a full German army, a reduce German army, and a German corps (6A:9A), the Germans will take more replacement points of damage 20 times out of 36. They will not lose the battle and have to retreat, but they will take more damage from a replacement point of view. In fact, sometimes not retreating is bad, depending on the losses. The Germans only come out ahead if they roll a 6 (6 out of 36) They come out even only if the French roll a 1 or 2 when the Germans do not roll a 6 (10 out of 36). The rest of the time (20 out of 36), the French flip one army and the Germans reduce an army and take a corps step or two (1.5-2 replacement points).

6) Many players will take a little ground in the West and dig and and focus on the east for a while. However, there are some paths to victory in the west, so you cannot just assume that they always do that. You had Landwehr the first turn. That is a great card to use for an early hard west push in my opinion, especially after the 7 LF on your opening attack on the French. You definitely gave me much to worry about until you started going after Poland.

7) You spent many OPs taking Poland away from Russia. While Lodz and Warsaw are worth two VPs, the rest was not important given the situation on the western front and the fact that you were still at limited war. I willingly gave up ground there to play all those replacements and reinforcements in the west while continuing to press you on the west.

8) Many players focus on getting to Total War before going strong on the offensive. Because you lacked trenches on the Western Front, I was able to punish you and constantly threaten your positions making it hard for you to play the necessary events.

9) While Germans have better combat factors than the French and British, they are equal on loss factors and the French and British combined get more replacements. While the Russians get the most replacement points, their armies have lower loss factors than the Germans. Two full German armies stacked can pulverize the best Russian stack. 9A:9A means the Germans take one replacement point of damage 5 times out of 6. The Russians take more than one replacement point of damage t times out of 6.

10) The Austrians have a nice range of mountains to fall back to to reduce the Russian attack columns and to prevent
545 3/14/2017 4:06:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Hey Guy

I'm wondering if at this point I should not just concede defeat. There is no way in the world the Germans are ever going to be able to recover from this. There armies are a complete mess and I have NO reinforcements.

The East front is also helpless. I don't see a game here.

I'm not exactly sure what I did wrong, but it must have been a doozy. The Allies got one hell of a lot of reinforcement cards too. All I ever seemed to draw were those useless German attack cards. And I drew the same ones several times. I don't see how I could ever raise the war level to get better cards.

Anyway, I enjoyed playing you and I hope you go on to victory.

Let me know how we wrap this thing up.


544 3/14/2017 2:25:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message I might be willing to just accept your board position because our log is hard to follow and I would rather not subject our referee to resolving this.

Here is what I have on the western front. I am using abbreviations, GE is an army where denotes the nth army, GEc is a corps. A unit in () is reduced.

Aachen: GE3, (GEc) What do you have here?
Essen: (GE9), (GE10)
Metz: GE1, two GEc, OOS, TR1
Strasburg: GE7, TR1, OOS
Mulhouse: TR1 (CP)

Liege: BR2, (BR4), BR1, Combat marker
Antwerp: Fort Destroyed
Verdun: Fot Destroyed
Nancy: FR5, FR10, FRc
Belfort: FRc, FR1, TR1
Dijon: (FR9)
Chateau Thierry: BEF Army, BR3
Paris: (FR3), (FR4), TR1
Melun: FRc
Calais: BEc, BE1, BRc
Koblenz: FR2, FR6, TR1
Frankfort: Allied control marker
Mannheim: FRc

I have GE2 in eliminated box with something like ten German corps.
543 3/14/2017 2:16:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message What do you have in Aachen according to your map right now? It is rather confusing with the way you took losses in Liege.
542 3/14/2017 2:06:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message I am replaying my moves to see if maybe the 3rd army was reduced and its replacement was legal. Maye I made a mistake somewhere this time.
541 3/14/2017 2:00:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message Suggestion:
If you post exactly what units your are moving/retreating, it will help catch mistakes earlier.

When you say, I retreat all Germans to Aachen there is no confirmation that our boards are in sync because you retreated a different mix of units than I had you having.

Sorry, I did not catch the switch of the 3rd and 2nd on that battle loss, because I just did the only legal way you had to take 4 LF.

Clarification: I have the German 2nd army as your only army in the eliminated box. The 4th, 5th, and 6th are permanently removed from lack of corps replacement.

FYI: You are better off with the full German 3rd and reduced German corps with the 2nd in the eliminated box, because if you have the 3rd and 2nd reduced in Aachen with the the reduced corps, then you will loses another army permanently in the battle and have no army to rebuild with replacements.
540 3/14/2017 1:51:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message OK, I think I found the source of your confusion. When the German 3rd and reduced German 2nd were defending in Liege, you took 4 LF and should have removed the 2nd and replaced it with a corps. You flipped the corps as the 4th LF. However, according to your message, you flipped the 3rd army and added a corps. I did not catch the mistake in your posting and I just removed the 2nd as it was the only legal way to take 4 LR.

Then, I retreated the reduced corps and the full 3rd to Aachen.
Thus, I have 6 defense for Aachen (plus the newly added trench).

J442:
Allied Second Action - 1 OP
The French 2nd and 6th armies in Brussels attack the reduced German 2nd army and the full strength German 3rd army in Liege.
Will reuse Air Superiority combat card (FR and BR can both use it) and will add in Phosgene Gas combat card.
6A +2 drm versus 6A.

J443:
#21: 2 / Phosgene Gas
A FR attack adds +1 drm.
+1 to attack Liege. This card cannot be reused, unlike the earlier two cards.

J453:
Fortunately both results turn out to be the same, but please clarify the strength of the French 2nd Army.
Germans lose 4 steps
Allies lose 3 steps
Flip the German 3rd Army, then replace with the only corps left in the reserve box and then flip the corps.
For now, I will flip the French 6th Army
Please confirm

J454: Germans must retreat to Aachen.

539 3/14/2017 11:23:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message OK, I think I've got the Belgrade thing. Rule 15.1.8 covers this.

538 3/14/2017 11:15:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Guy, I also have the German 2nd army (flipped) in Aachen
537 3/14/2017 11:11:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message I was not clear on why Belgrade did not fall after the Serbian Army took 3LF on the table. The forts in Russia were taken in a single turn. Why does not Belgrade fall right away?


536 3/14/2017 12:03:00 AM Winter 1916 Allies Message The British Mandated Offensive has been satisified.
535 3/14/2017 12:02:00 AM Winter 1916 Allies Message A level 1 allied trench was placed in Koblenz.
534 3/14/2017 12:02:00 AM Winter 1916 Allies Message I will advance in Aachen with the full strength army remaining, should you retreat.
533 3/14/2017 12:01:00 AM Winter 1916 Allies Message Serbians fire first in the 3A column. Bulgarians return based on what they have left (should be 0c-2c), which should result in no losses to Serbians.

No advance (that would put my unit out of supply).

517 3/12/2017 2:33:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message By the way, Metz already has a trench from the beginning of the game. The Event does not allow upgrading to level 2.
516 3/12/2017 2:32:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message Sorry, I correctly placed them in Essen. Koblenz is illegal. You must place them in Berin, Essen, or Breslau.

Would you like to pickup your event and play a different card since there is a supply threat at Mannheim?
515 3/12/2017 8:57:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Message #495 states that that is where I placed my replacements, I realize now that I could not put them there is that correct? You didn't mention anything about my placing them there so I thought it was ok.

Checking rule 17.1.5 I now see that replacements have to be placed just like reinforcements.

AMENDED MOVE

The re-constituted 9th and 10th armies (flipped) appear now at Essen NOT Koblenz.

I will place the entrenchment at Metz instead.

513 3/11/2017 1:23:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message I have Koblenz as empty, so you cannot place a trench there.

Also, with the destruction of the two armies that were there the end of last turn, there is a supply threat to Metz and Strasburg.

Maybe you want to save this event and move the armies to someplace safer, like Frankfurt to setup the plan for your next action.

462 3/8/2017 7:53:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message If a 5 LF result comes up against Koblenz, we need to consult with the referee. Rule 12.4.4.2 is like our situation, but is not exactly covered.


461 3/8/2017 7:47:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Play Strategy card as Event #28: 4 / Landships
Allows play of "Royal Tank Corps".

Message from Allies:
Allied Third

Move Valjevo: Serbian 2nd army to Nis.

Move Szawli: Russian corps to Kovno; Russian 5th and Russian 6th armies to Insterberg going through German controlled Memel.

Combat Bialystok: reduced Russian 2nd Army and two Russia corps attack the reduced Austrian 1st army in Brest Litovsk. 4A versus 1A. Any losses taken on a single corps.

Combat Sedan: the British 2nd and British 4th armies attack the reduced German corps, reduced German 4th army, and the full German 6th Army in Koblenz. The reduced British 1st does not participate.

Using Air Superiority and Hurricane Barrage.

6A+2 versus 9A.

FYI: I believe if I get a 5LF, you must remove the reduced German 4th as if a German corps existed in the reserve box. Further, it would be permanently eliminated.
460 3/8/2017 7:39:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message I am about to play Landships as an event. According to the tournament rules, it is a dual ccard that allows OPs with the event:

457 3/8/2017 7:28:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Apologies, I can't understand why I am making so many mistakes on Vassal. I correct the moves but later on when I open the file stuff is not recorded.

I guess I need more experience with it.

Ok, so the French 6th Army is flipped, but the 2nd army is fresh. Was there an advance?


456 3/8/2017 7:27:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message No advance. Brussels now contains the full French 2nd, reduced French 6th and a full French corps.

Since I won the battle, Air Superiority is retained for further use.

France(3): 5th full in Nancy, 2nd full in Brussels, build the 3rd army reduced in Paris.
454 3/8/2017 7:15:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Germans must retreat to Aachen.


453 3/8/2017 7:14:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Fortunately both results turn out to be the same, but please clarify the strength of the French 2nd Army.

Germans lose 4 steps
Allies lose 3 steps

Flip the German 3rd Army, then replace with the only corps left in the reserve box and then flip the corps.

For now, I will flip the French 6th Army

Please confirm

451 3/8/2017 7:10:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Guy, I have the French 2nd Army flipped. Should not this attack be on the 5 Table??

I will go ahead and resolve the attack and see if it makes a difference.

Allied die roll first

Allies on the 5 or 6-8 table but +2 to die

Germans on the 6-8 Table

449 3/8/2017 7:06:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Understand, I had done one of those moves before. I just wasn't clear on what you did.

448 3/7/2017 11:22:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Message 8.1.3 Each player must take one of six possible actions:
• Play a Strategy Card as an Operations (OPS) card.
• Play a Strategy Card as a Strategic Redeployment (SR) card.
• Play a Strategy Card as a Replacement (RP) card.
• Play a Strategy Card as an Event card.
• Offer Peace Terms if the VP level is within the player’s allowable
range.
• Take an Automatic Operation with an OPS Value of one without
the play of a Strategy Card.

I am using the last option.
