344 2/28/2019 12:17:00 PM Turn 11 Kevin H. (Germans) Message Trying to get the ADV back is tactical, not strategic... basically the same idea with the Strat Score here. Though using a bunch of British resources for that on the 11th is Strat in a way - they can't be used in any other way today.

Do you know why you contested Potigny on the 10th to open the day? It does keep The Emperor from pre-empting your Carentan assault on the 12th, and gave you your last 0.1. Were you trying to take it? You went in 15:12 without bombarding to open the day.
343 2/28/2019 12:13:00 PM Turn 11 Kevin H. (Germans) Message Last night I read through the full ACTS log of this game, to re-familiarize myself with the narrative and ups & downs. It has been quite interesting - cool decisions on both sides. I'll send the summary I have once we're done.

You were +13 in Carentan bombardments on the 10th, yielding 34 AP there. But today you're down 17 including the -8 on your +9 assault.

I mentioned my idea of a "Strat score" - the amount of times I'm strategically surprised by my opponent vs. when he is surprised, and how I tend think that the leader there is who deserves to win. I don't have a sense of it in the full game here because we took that long break. But since we've resumed, you're definitely up 1-0... I air-balled on anticipating that you'd try for the trifecta in the east - nice move. I think I was just despondent enough in my chances at Carentan that I wasn't looking at the full map the way you were.
342 2/27/2019 11:21:00 PM Turn 11 Kevin H. (Germans) Message And you seriously need a 'Cards' option in ACTS - WTF

327 2/22/2019 4:02:00 AM Turn 11 Kevin H. (Germans) Message Utterly preposterous... it was equally likely you'd have opened up the 11th with a +5 vs St Jean then a +8 vs Carentan. Instead, -13 in two rolls. Just crazy

The assault was 15:6, the bridge grab missed so it was a mandatory assault over my bridge, so 1 hit - Flak/12 to D1
326 2/21/2019 8:25:00 PM Turn 11 Jason (Allies) Message Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

In doing so, I realized I've forgotten more or less all the nuance of what was going on here, so it'll take me longer than one sitting to come up with something to give you a competent 10th.

I *did* remember I've have nearly no chance, which still holds. I just have no recollection of what I was planning to do for my hail mary sequence(s) -- when it's going every day, I hold it all in my head. When we take a break, it all flits off; I don't have that Bob/Hammond gene.

Anyway, I have a draft done, just need to let it sit for a bit and make sure it makes sense. Point being, soon.

252 5/1/2018 7:25:00 AM Turn 9 Jason (Allies) Message Crap. Letter of the law says we're past it, it sticks, but that's stupid. Couple options:

1. Last unit across goes back.
2. Had I seen it was going to be 6, I wouldn't have moved the yellow baby arty east. I just had a free move so I threw it over there. Once I got stuffed and ended the day, I was always gonna double.

I lean toward #2, because this is largely performative anyway. The competitive game ended when you your +1 stuck in Catz. I'm not anywhere near concession, but now I'm just trying to get lucky. +8 or +9 or whatever to get the Adv back, or 2-3 up rolls in the same theater, exactly when and how I need them. All things that can happen, but it's a different exercise than what this game was before.

Clearing Caumont would have been fun and exciting, but it wouldn't have changed the overall game odds much. Unless I cleared on exactly a 6:2. That might have been interesting. Otherwise, I still need a 2VP spot and them not-good odds have been the same for some time.

Lemme know what you think.
251 5/1/2018 3:59:00 AM Turn 9 Kevin H. (Germans) Message You sent 6 across the Sword/Merville Bridge - only 5 can cross even in a double.
250 4/30/2018 11:47:00 PM Turn 9 Kevin H. (Germans) Message Tough break at Caumont, a bloody -7. A +4 there totally changes the game. Such a bad hole for the Germans to have in their line. The Troarn Situation(TM) will be interesting. 19 British units in the east, including 4 artillery and 2 armor (yikes)
