452 11/19/2017 8:13:00 PM Turn 1 Bob(G) Message I also should have targeted the inf in aunay, flipping him is enough
451 11/19/2017 8:07:00 PM Turn 1 Bob(G) Message I think the key allied decision was pivot to center on 10th, rather than caen.
450 11/19/2017 7:56:00 PM Turn 1 49er(A) Message I could swing the US Armor to take the now open area, but no units to reach the VP area one deeper and st.lo units could just roll back to cover.

Pretty much we both saw the game hinged on that Villars contest which failed to end the 10th. Just too many areas to capture/contest on the 11th and not enough artillery in the right spots.

Granted I could have played the 11th better to have some chance, but had to contest/capture 4 areas and just didn't have enough fresh units to really do it, because if Balleroy or Villars weren't contested along with Foret, more units could pour in during regroups. Not to mention I needed my artillery moved and a strike force in an area. So really needed to capture bayeux, tilly and balleroy for that to happen.

Well played to keep yourself in it and recognize the critical roll Foret contest was to use the Adv. So definite skill in that and the lucky roll just was you making your own luck per se. :-)
449 11/19/2017 7:50:00 PM Turn 1 49er(A) Message yeah, I was wondering what you were thinking as it was easy to prevent the chance. it would have been poetic justice if you failed to clear as it would have then been twice (early when you let the Aunay chance occur) and then late letting a low odds shot occur for a breakout.

I thought of regrouping the 3/FA to Villars, but figured that would tip you off too much and just had to go for it at 2 less.

I had that idea in my head for the longest time, but you had stuffed Aunay so it would have been tough to clear earlier and you held the Adv. a long time so I didn't have to double impulse opportunity available.
448 11/19/2017 7:49:00 PM Turn 1 Bob(G) Message I clearly should have left an inf in aunay. silly mistake to give allies any shot. VERY GOOD move to see, and march at dawn.
447 11/19/2017 7:47:00 PM Turn 1 Bob(G) Message I realized that possibility AFTER I did my regroups BEFORE i saw yours. I almost asked to edit.

the whole sequence was 0.5% to succeed (including palpatine shot), but that's way higher than your odds at foret or caumont or catz.
446 11/19/2017 7:42:00 PM Turn 1 49er(A) Message congrats, no point in going any further in this one

442 11/19/2017 7:37:00 PM Turn 1 49er(A) Message I believe that is correct as the zones rules do mention no air support. I figured this was my best shot because foret wasn't going to fall in one day.

11a8 evercy armor assaults balleroy 7:5
417 11/15/2017 9:30:00 PM Turn 1 Bob(G) Message right. only choice was to throw hail mary with yank tank. good move. btw, it was 8-11 (sunshine bonus), so 25% of preventing 2 arty from regrouping into foret.

the deciding roll of this game was reroll of foret contest on 10th. total gut punch to hit that roll, so lucky. even if you had gotten into foret today, would be 8 fresh at dawn with 2 arty in bocage....really hard to clear all that, even with tons of arty...you'd run out of time on 12th before foret runs out of steps

416 11/15/2017 9:21:00 PM Turn 1 49er(A) Message as I knew I would be attacking into some fresh in foret, but didn't do the MP math from omaha approach because units there hit foret all the time (albeit they are spent units...) so my attack force for foret had to be from bretteville... though you did blow the bridge, so I guess it would have been trouble nonetheless and was part of why I figured omaha would be the strike force. still frustrating though with making MP count errors... guess that's the long game fatigue factor I have to work on.

377 11/14/2017 8:40:00 AM Turn 1 Bob(G) Message this is sorta redic sequence after long game.

nuke bomb was basically the ONLY roll i cared about today, and i got the critical -3.

not to mention that 4 of last 5 dice have been large downrolls.

376 11/14/2017 8:21:00 AM Turn 1 49er(A) Message Past 5 rolls were a combined -21... and now is probably the most worried I'd be as the Germans. Since it's time for Vegas BKN or going on tilt! At any rate, lower odds assaults are coming now to try and get the game back pro-Allied. Which is always a fear for the Germans, as hot dice can devastate any position when low odds assaults roll up. :-)

Obviously doing things the proper way is much more likely to succeed, but a 'winning' +2 or better roll missed in Caumont but was enough to stick, which promoted a -4 roll or better in Foret for the win, which crashed hard on your re-roll. (nice use of the Adv) Now bombardment failures left and right, so gotta assault without as much expected softening up of the targets and hope for the best.

Now if we had bidding for 'average dice' result... that Foret roll would have been -2 to +2 tops and actually would have had an effect on winning/losing more so than extra supply which may or may not come into effect based on the luck or unluck of the dice. Because my view the dice extremes are the things which make or break a game typically. If they happen at the right times there is nothing one side or the other can do.
