321 1/7/2021 10:48:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message Things are pretty rough in Switzerland which has the highest +65 death rate of any of the surrounding countries. So I have been in self isolation since the beginning of December. Partial lockdown instituted. All planned Xmas and New Year family events cancelled. Swiss Government likely to require a nationwide lockdown next week in the face of rising C10 infection. All in all a pretty grim start to 2021.
320 12/27/2020 7:17:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message Commitments over the holiday period has left/will leave me with little time for gaming. I will game as and when I can but a more regular service is unlikely to resume much before the week beginning 4 January.

311 11/30/2020 3:44:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message Sorry for the mistake. Place Wheeler with the army
310 11/29/2020 6:07:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message Per 10.2 you cannot put reinforcements into a VP city that is not in friendly territory. Kentucky was converted by the Union and is enemy territory. So you need to place Wheeler elsewhere.

The SP placement was put into the army and there is an exception to the rule. Mainly, if you are in supply, you can enter commanders and SPs into an army.

Seems easiest if we say you put Wheeler into your army before it moved back to Bowling Green. Sound good?
309 11/22/2020 6:31:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message Yeah, my area shutdown because of a surge. I think people got carelessly stupid around Halloween and expected things to go back to normal when the authorities warned this would be a crucial time.
308 11/22/2020 6:30:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message I made it to the final round of interviewing with FB so that will be on December 9th. I expect my wargaming moves to slow down the week before. FYI.
307 11/16/2020 9:39:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message Cases and deaths are increasing in Switzerland but both are concentrated in the 65+ age group. Similar to USA lockdown policy is a Cantonal matter in Switzerland. The cantons bordering France, Germany and Italy have all introduced stronger lockdown measures than Canton Bern where I live, but I fear that is about to change. As I am in a risk category I have begun to be more “isolationist” that in the past few weeks but have not gone into full isolation yet. Swiss media is stoking up fear by again giving statistics without context. Everyone in Europe seems to have forgotten that we are at the beginning of the normal flu season when several thousand people usually die between November and February.

283 10/19/2020 5:21:00 AM Turn 4 USA Message My apologies for the confusion. I viewed the Dropbox and forgot our communications are not by email but ACTS. I will work on a move now.
282 10/19/2020 4:05:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message I am confused by the situation - the last log I see in the DB is 0112 SHANHEN - Union – GT4 – 1861. The last line in this log says about Pemberton is "but he can only leave with 2 of the 3 SPs as he is one star so back to you for your decision" I interpreted this to mean that Pemberton had managed to evade the A o SW. if he wished to do so. I stated that he would fight and, on ACTS there is a series of posts dealing with the battle. Followed by a pulse which gives the Union the initiative with a DD of 1. But I see no log presumably log 113 covering this.
281 10/18/2020 6:16:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message I believe it is your move, yes?

266 10/2/2020 5:47:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message I thought you were querying my placement of Forrest in the AoW. At present I am hooked on a ACW PC game "Grand Tactician - American Civil War" - it is on Steam Early Access and is an exhaustive coverage of the ACW from Grand Strategic down to tactical resolution of battles. It is a bit rough around the edges as it is early access but the game is clearly a labour of love for the designers who respond promptly to bug reports.

Anyway now that we have sorted Forrest it is you to move with a DD of 7
265 10/2/2020 4:45:00 AM Turn 4 USA Message Correct. What is your question exactly? I thought you moved Forrest from one hex to another per my earlier message. True? If not then it is based on supply rules for placing reinfs. Thanks.
264 9/29/2020 3:59:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message Shannon . not sure I understand the problem - as per 10.3.2 Leaders must always be placed in a hex containing either a friendly SP or depot. Leaders may never be placed in an empty hex or into a hex containing only other leaders. Within these limitations, leaders must be placed in VP cities or into an Army within the same restrictions as those for SP’s. - As far as I can tell placement of Forrest meets these criteria.
263 9/26/2020 7:47:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message Think I answered this but just in case so that you can finish your move.

Forrest can be added if he is in your reinf pool. Moving him is a problem b/c he can go on the RRs but then can move 11 spaces to get to the AOSW - swamps count as two spaces. Make sense?

256 9/21/2020 7:46:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message AOSW is in supply per depots so could place SPs and comms from incoming reinfs. Everyone else on the map would need to be moved there.

See 10.2 and note that the Union cannot do this using the sea. They have to use sea lift and commands to dump SPs into an army that came by sea. This is why most Union players do not do it as it's a lot of resources.
255 9/21/2020 7:40:00 PM Turn 4 USA Message It's about the same attitude with COVID for the responsible people and then those who don't care resent the restrictions and expose more people.
254 9/21/2020 4:02:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message Shannon - am awaiting your response to my query about the A o SW. I have started using Vassal 3.4.2. I understand one can continue using Vassal 3.2.17 to open files created on Vassal 3.4.2. This only becomes a problem if the Vassal game module changes to a 3.4 module. Hope this doesn't cause problems.

Problem is don't know when these speeds are going to drop from 90+ Mbps to virtually nothing!
Everyone in Europe is obsessing over the number of cases which are rising. But the number of hospitalisations and deaths are very low. The number of cases are increasing because countries are testing more and the test that is being used picks up tiny fragments of C19 so labels someone as positive when they are not. I have lived through many crises in my 68 years but I cannot remember a level of risk aversion that is verging on hysteria and I speak as someone with enough underlying conditions to make contracting C19 a serious issue for me. The only fact I know for certain is that the West has crashed its economy and the consequence of that in my opinion will be far more serious than the C19 pandemic. Rant over :-)

Unfortunately the problem remains unresolved so, although I will try and update games whenever I have a firm connection, I am afraid my turnaround will be delayed still further.
Other non gaming commitments mean that, realistically I do not expect to get back to regular gaming much before the week beginning Monday 7th September
