275 1/5/2018 12:19:00 AM Turn 9 Germans Message I agree with all you wrote. It wasn't a must-Caen J9 dawn. You were able to do some wait-and-see before committing any strategic assets. Not that you have actually committed anything yet, which is the cool thing about the V Corps move you made.
.
(in Foret: yup I'll stay in place at D2)

Pak to Thury-Harcourt

274 12/19/2017 9:24:00 PM Turn 9 Allies Message Yeah, really interesting moment. I've sort of split the difference with the "light" move into Bayeux. I wouldn't say that I thought at the time it had to be a Caen game...

...But it was possible that it *would* have to be a Caen game. :) I didn't want to go through the 9th with bridges blown in my face and a failed clear or two that kept me from rolling for effect in important assaults and bombardments. It's unwinnable if the German army is going to stay fresh.
273 12/19/2017 5:22:00 PM Turn 9 Germans Message ...and by fun I mean how my reaction to those kind of moments tends to go something like "oh good, now he's going for Caen.... ... ...oh crap now he's going for Caen!" : )
272 12/19/2017 3:55:00 PM Turn 9 Germans Message "V corps arty moves to Bayeux" - Dun Dun DUNNNNNNN!!

Also known in the Breakout world as Fun!

When I saw your regroup and the big stack in Juno, and trying to figure out what you thought your odds were vs. Carentan, I got this visual into my heads of a cartoon of you as the Incredible Hulk, with your massive fist held over Caen with the caption "NELS SMASH!!" hahahahaaha
271 12/19/2017 8:03:00 AM Turn 9 Allies Message Up 7 on the odds, down 3 on the dice, minus 1 for bocage is 3 CPs. I presume you will take the defender to D2.

V corps arty moves to Bayeux. End of impulse. Over to you for 9G2.

Message from Allies:
I reasoned that so long as I inflicted at least 1 CP, it would give you a triple play problem. I hate to toss a full division into +4 odds, but I thought it was one of those moments in the game where it's unavoidable.

252 12/11/2017 9:12:00 PM Turn 8 Germans Message In working on my upcoming regroup, I noticed that I didn't refit the zone units (a D1 901/Lehr in C, and three 346th units in B). I refit them in my regroup. I checked the ACTS log to be sure, particularly re: the Lehr unit. It went D1 on the 7th, and regrouped back to the Zone on 7th-Regroup. So now it goes to spent in the 8th-Regroup.

241 7/16/2017 6:21:00 PM Turn 8 Allies Message A minor thing, but I am pleased with how I prioritized that. I spent the impulse to get 2nd ashore at Omaha, and I used the corps at Pont because if I ended the day, I might still get something, but if I ended the day at Caen, I would probably whiff.

180 7/12/2017 1:01:00 AM Turn 7 Allies Message I don't see the map in the folder. Are you still working on refits or going straight into regroups? No rush.
179 7/11/2017 4:05:00 PM Turn 7 Germans Message Until I got a *2nd* overcast pulse, I was going to be able to save 6 and thus buy 2 pulses. But I was happy to give that up for the value of getting 3 more units down to Carentan, and see if I could hit that "+9 roll with me holding the ADV" to nail everyone in Caen.

In my last game vs Mike Kaye, I took Caen with my first on-map move of the 7th (a double impulse after ludicrous AirInt), and he followed that up with a monster bombardment that hit all 9 or 10 of my units! Not enough to save the Germans, though
178 7/11/2017 4:01:00 PM Turn 7 Germans Message "Great game. Very tense." I agree. Plenty of excitement and surprise twists and turns so far. A few of them: Omaha *not* going D1 vs 3 guns in the first wave. Utah group clearing SME on 7th but due to weak bombardments and German airint success, Carentan remains uncontested, and now stronger than ever after some late overcast.

Allies managed to clear Juno on D-Day, which was looking spotty for a while. On 7th, less damage than expected in Caen, but Merville savaged and hanging on by a thread. Late Caen bombardment took out over a division's worth of troops but mostly hit scrapple (three non-div units).
