6 7/12/2018 5:46:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Hi Julian

I'm in Australian Eastern Standard Time time zone (GMT+10)

I'm cool with scenario and supply warnings. I do the same with the order too, unless specified otherwise.

You can have the CP for 0

Do you want to exchange move files ?

3 7/12/2018 4:42:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hi Philip,

I'm in the Pacific Time Zone GMT-7.

I always roll combat as 1st die Attacker, 2nd die Defender.

I prefer the default WBC Historical Scenario with supply warnings, agree?

Good luck!
2 7/12/2018 6:29:00 AM August 1914 Moderator Message Hi Julian and Philip - Welcome to Round Six of the BPA VII Paths of Glory Tournament!

I'll be your game moderator and should be your first point of contact for any issues related to this match. As always, the priority should be for a fun and fair match for all involved. The official launch date for this round is today, July 1st, 2018, please start your match immediately. Round 6 concludes on Sunday, November 11th, 2018 and you’ll have 134 days this round.

Contacting me: I am based in Philadelphia (US EST, GMT -5) and will generally respond to all match questions within 24 hours. I strongly recommend you e-mail me directly at "gregorit@yahoo.com" referencing your match # when you do so. If I do not respond within 48 hours, please escalate to one of the other GMs (mdauer92@yahoo.com or paulhubbard@hotmail.co.uk). If I am going to be unavailable for more than 48 hours, I will alert you ahead of time.

Issue Resolution: If either player has a concern about a particular ruling or resolution I make, feel free to raise it to the other GMs. I will also reach out to Paul and Michael if there's something I'm not sure of. Please remember that the ACTS logs are viewable for all, direct e-mail exchanges with your opponent are obviously permitted but GMs will view the ACTS logs as the authoritative record of the game.

Time Management: I am anticipating that games will go longer, with that in mind, maintaining your game pace is key. Please keep your opponent informed regarding absences or schedule limitations.

Getting Started:
Here are my thoughts on how to get the match started:
- Introduce yourselves and set expectations regarding your availability and game pace.
- Agree on the scenario. The default is the WBC Historical Scenario as described on the POG Tournament Page and I strongly recommend its usage.
- Agree on usage of supply warnings. They are strongly recommended.
- There is no mandatory usage of a particular PBEM tool. VASSAL is recommended but not necessary and exchanging game logs is also optional.
- Bid for sides. (Initial bidder is to be random, one of you should just roll a die with a 50-50 shot of that player bidding first. Switch sides in ACTS if necessary, contact me if you need help with this.
- Draw cards. CP will then kick off the fun by rolling the turn 1 MO and playing their first card.

Have fun!
