321 7/10/2017 1:49:00 PM Turn 10 Germans Message Understood. FWIW, you did exactly what I would have done as the Allies when you tried to take Tilly.

I put it here at a decent, maybe 50/50 shot to take Carentan for you? Tilly could fall and so could Merville, given enough time. But time is the problem here. At WBC, you'd definitely play it out. A weather change and an 11th that runs through impulse 8 or 9, not an unreasonable hope, could see maybe Carentan and Tilly fall and then make the 12th a hunt for 1 VP. I think it's only about an 80% German win here, but some of the interest is out of it because it's a dice slog now. We both know what to do.

My word, you deserved better. Your early luck was worse than awful: it was just enough to keep us interested.


320 7/8/2017 9:24:00 PM Turn 10 Allies Message Let's not prolong this -- we can call it. Staring at the map there seems to be some small Allied chance, but it's less than when we started the 10th.

If it were a tournament, I'd probably play on for the hail mary shot, but I won't make you deathmarch it here.

Great game all around. There were a few moments on the 6th and 7th where things felt good, but after that, I felt perpetually flat-footed and impulse or even two behind. That's some weak punching.

311 7/6/2017 9:22:00 PM Turn 10 Germans Message 10G6 Act. Villars, move both flak to Tilly. 10A6 up.
310 7/6/2017 9:20:00 PM Turn 10 Germans Message Nice play. Obviously the re-roll was kind, but advantage in hand gives you two shots to get a big roll, and it's a game-changing play.

Up 10 is down to 9 for bocage, and I am very glad I stuffed that extra unit in there earlier in the turn.

9 points: lead defender, 12th arm, goes spent and D1 for 2. Corps arty goes D2 and R to Caumont for 4. Spent flak goes D2 and R to Caumont for 3 more, 9 total.

243 6/22/2017 6:45:00 AM Turn 9 Germans Message However...

Surviving the first counterattack, the 7:4, allowed me to fork you, and stuff Merville.
242 6/22/2017 6:43:00 AM Turn 9 Germans Message Yes, I think I'll make that re-roll of early 9th weather change a standard part of my play and I won't agonize over it very much. I think the odds of a later weather change is about 1 in 4 (I should know that), and a later weather change, if it's late enough, say impulse 6, is way less damaging.

On the other hand, I don't like my counterattack into Catz. I think there was only a 1 in 4 chance or thereabouts that Catz remains contested at end of turn, and in the 3 out of 4, I wreck one of my most valuable units.

If the payoff in making you take impulses you don't want to take was higher, then maybe, or if I had two units that moved in the same impulse, each creating a different problem and forking you, then it would be different. But I think I just threw away a good unit for no gain.
241 6/21/2017 10:57:00 PM Turn 9 Allies Message No bridge. +5, down 3 for 2 hits is just enough to kick him out to St. Jean. Day-ender.

Activate Bretteville, repair Bayeux, 5+.
222 6/18/2017 11:14:00 AM Turn 9 Allies Message I don't think it's crazy at all. Maybe at first glance it seems strange, but I like it.

I mean, I know this: I went from "I'm getting my ass handed to me" to "Holy shit, I may have a crack here." And while the gut may not be a perfect metric, more than a few players much better than me have said only use it on a gamechanger -- otherwise hold it. That certainly had that potential. Sun on 9A2? Man. And yep, my next two pulses were for sure going to be air-air.
