212 5/26/2017 2:09:00 PM Turn 8 Allies-Hammond Message Please, gripe away : ) I'll continue my own by lamenting how even just adding 1 pip to my Bayeux roll would lead to a dramatically worse German map right now: stalemate instead of assault failure which would have blocked your Port en Bessin move, *and* no WC so no Cotentin flaks in the center

I hear you on bidding. I bid 36 and 46 in two of my WBC matches last summer. Not sure that I'll be doing that much. I do still think it it had a role (larger German bids). But it's waning for sure. Maybe some day you'll be strongly advising newbies to bid for the Allies? Or at least stress the pros and cons of why, if it's a coin toss, someone might prefer either side?

I'm away in Portland this weekend - refit when I return. Hope you have a fun weekend! It's going to be 86-90 sunny and very low humidity in PDX. I'm going to do a 10-15 mile day hike through Forest Park, this massive wooded park on a ridge line NW of downtown
211 5/25/2017 6:46:00 AM Turn 8 Germans-Thompson Message It's not polite to gripe after good fortune, I know. But I am slowly coming to realize how strong the new Allied lines of play are. I'm looking at an army that is in decent shape and stands to be positively mauled over the next two days. I'm very fortunate that you need some luck for that American arty. (Or I will be after a couple of refit misses.) Without my luck on the 8th, I don't think it's a very good German board, even with the magic bridge and no disasters.
210 5/25/2017 6:43:00 AM Turn 8 Germans-Thompson Message Over to you for refits and regroups.

I'm having a hard time thinking I'm going to be bidding to play the Germans. I had a great 8th, and I'm not crazy about my position.

Not sure what I can say about *that* June 8th, except to say... better now than at Seven Springs! : )
207 5/23/2017 12:59:00 PM Turn 8 Allies-Hammond Message Wow! Stalemate, day ends. What a great 8th for you - well played. I had poor progress and three huge setbacks (Merville, the D1 vs Bayeux, now this sh*tshow dividing my armies)... and that's with the one elephant in the room not panning out for you (Verson).

I'll need to see the map before I decide on my retreats re: PEB, so no file from me til late. I'm meeting with friends at a gaming lounge later

194 5/22/2017 9:43:00 PM Turn 8 Germans-Thompson Message 8G4 in the wet.

Act. Volognes, move 3x flak and 1x pak to Isigny.
193 5/22/2017 9:43:00 PM Turn 8 Allies-Hammond Message Honestly the Allies are winning all the games I can think of... will see if I can recall one that has useful Foret/Cara defense stuff in it
192 5/22/2017 9:42:00 PM Turn 8 Allies-Hammond Message My current one vs Bob isn't really worth scouring re: Carentan. I took the MB on D-Day, and but when I was down to needing to run flaks in to SME from Valognes, I rolled three 2's and SME fell. Which led to Carentan falling on the 9th.

If you inspect the game it may be worth looking at the Eastern Brits- it wasn't a full TT game, but close. As of late on the 9th, neither Bourg nor Potig are contested (yet)
191 5/22/2017 9:39:00 PM Turn 8 Germans-Thompson Message I'm trying to retool my game to defend Foret and/or Carentan better. I've always just won game by letting the clock run out at Carentan.

But recent Allied play is defeating that strategy. I'm going to check in on your game with Bob, or any others out there in the logs, to see how you or others are doing it. Any games you recommend I look at?
190 5/22/2017 9:38:00 PM Turn 8 Allies-Hammond Message Thanks... I actually sacrificed a stronger stack by regrouping to Verson instead of Bretteville. But I needed to do that if I wanted to regroup my arty forward from Juno/Gold
189 5/22/2017 9:36:00 PM Turn 8 Allies-Hammond Message yeah over to you
188 5/22/2017 9:36:00 PM Turn 8 Allies-Hammond Message Any time I feel like I "love my move" as the Germans, I tend to think it may be a bad idea. Doing cute and highlight-reel plays as the bad guys in this game, when most of the time you're back on your heels doing the Rope-a-Dope... you really just want to open up and clock Foreman after all that, right?

Sometimes the cute move *is* the right German move, but a lot of the time for me it's my ego craving something spectacular
187 5/22/2017 9:35:00 PM Turn 8 Germans-Thompson Message Yes, I hate that regroup into Verson, and seizing the Bretteville<>Caen bridge, to boot. Very powerful position.
186 5/22/2017 9:34:00 PM Turn 8 Germans-Thompson Message ...or you could just roll down 7. Whatev. ;)

Over to me, right? (5 landers, so you're done?)
185 5/22/2017 9:34:00 PM Turn 8 Allies-Hammond Message I was thinking based on your eastern half at dawn, that if I got average dice in the east, and no clouds, that you would be in real bad shape at dawn on the 9th. That has not come to pass, though. I had an "up" airstrike that evened out the down ETF roll, but rolling down on a 9-stack attack really is just a moral harm : )
184 5/22/2017 9:33:00 PM Turn 8 Germans-Thompson Message I agonized about the 6-6-3. I almost never play for 1 pip. But I want to hold Foret and bounce your attack, if possible. Very possibly not the wise play. I always tell myself not to play for 1 pip. I give up the big defender in Isigny (maybe) for a mere 1 pip in Foret, giving back 2 pips in Isigny in return. Probably too aggressive. I probably fell in love with what I was trying a little too much there, which is always a bias problem I try to avoid. Don't love your own move so much that you favor it or double down on it irrationally.
183 5/22/2017 9:32:00 PM Turn 8 Allies-Hammond Message The ole' -7 roll on the +6 assault. And in come the clouds. even a 4:10 there would have been infinitely preferable... stalemate and no clouds. And I had missed my trifecta by 1 pip on the 7th right? Dang. Crazy.
182 5/22/2017 9:30:00 PM Turn 8 Germans-Thompson Message My thought with blood was basically that. I didn't hate it if it's spent in Troarn. Even D1 in Troarn contributes positively to the defense. Although I'm overcommitting my units a bit, having Lehr/1 sitting in Potigny justified the risk with blood. If blood sticks, it frees 1st armored, I felt. If blood doesn't, 1st armored is there on the 9th to fill blood's role.

A little thin there, given what I have in range of Caen. A perfectly reasonably alternate line is sit with blood and just wait out the day, sit with 6FS in Isigny and just wait out the day, and get as thick as possible on the 9th. I think I like the way I chose to play it, but I could be convinced that it wasn't optimal, too.

Message from Allies-Hammond:
8A3a- activate Omaha approach. 2x 2nd and 3x 90th move to Trevieres, then assault Bayeux at 11:5 vs 3 steps
180 5/22/2017 9:27:00 PM Turn 8 Allies-Hammond Message I liked that you committed the good inf (6-6-3) rather than the weak one - for my benefit I mean
179 5/22/2017 9:27:00 PM Turn 8 Germans-Thompson Message The Verson bombardment possibly gives me an opportunity, so I like that play. Do I like holding back from Caen? Not really. But I don't really like running only to be under a 7:6, either. I might be going a little light. Interesting game.
178 5/22/2017 9:26:00 PM Turn 8 Allies-Hammond Message Care to elaborate? You can wait until later, refits, or whenever, if you prefer.

I liked your run of Blood through Troarn and an air roll, in clear weather, in order to tie things up at Merville. Cool move, and rewarded by a big fat D1 in my counterattack
177 5/22/2017 9:25:00 PM Turn 8 Germans-Thompson Message Do I really like this line? I like drawing your counterattack into Merville instead of risking blowing up Troarn. Fortunate that it worked out for me. I wanted that 4:4 bombardment. Nice kill shot if I roll big, but not worth playing to get it, really. I like making it not trivial to take Foret, but another unit into the grinder there, and one of my best ones? It puts a lot of tension into the next couple of rolls, that could go badly for either of us.
176 5/22/2017 9:23:00 PM Turn 8 Germans-Thompson Message I'm not sure how well I like my play this turn. I'm working along the margins, a little clever. Maybe too clever. I'm not sure.

128 5/7/2017 12:05:00 PM Turn 7 Germans-Thompson Message Would you like to pick this back up? No pressure. Perhaps you are waiting on me, if you sent me something and I didn't catch it. I think it's 7th refits & regroups up for the Allies, correct?

But seriously, no pressure on it.
127 4/16/2017 8:59:00 AM Turn 7 Germans-Thompson Message Another thing about the MB is that I am more comfortable than I used to be with throwing fewer units into St. Mere. I used to see that virtually all of the peninsula units could be used at St. Mere. MB games simply didn't result in pressure on Carentan. But that has changed, and I am playing more like the MB is a gambit. Does my opponent feel lucky? Will he put more impulses into SME? I want the odds to favor me, but I'm not making them lockdown odds.

This is more of a feel than an analysis. I'm retooling my German play.
126 4/16/2017 8:56:00 AM Turn 7 Germans-Thompson Message Regarding MB tries, yes, I am trying to limit the impulses I spend on it. I don't know if I will try more than twice, for example. I like to make my positioning move from Cap now, too, saving Cherbourg for activation if I get a weather change. Basically, I am going back to my roots. I used to win MB games because they fell to me, not because I forced them. Now that I've started losing them, I reasonably can't say that taking the MB has as much value as I thought it did, so I'm trying to limit it to 2 or 3 impulses. The new pressure off of Brit beaches is forcing me to prioritize moves to cover Caen, Merville, and the center.

I might even put the 352nd shot at Omaha back into the repertoire. Lately I have had a hard time stopping the pressure in the center.
