495 8/18/2019 8:14:00 AM Summer 1944 Axis Message If you advance into Naples you have to stop because of the mountains. Do you want to advance into and stay in Naples, or do you want to not advance and just stay in Catanzaro?

492 8/14/2019 9:19:00 AM Summer 1944 Axis Message My unit at Naples is wiped out, nothing to you of course. Figure there's no need to send a file for this as you can readily take care of the loss and then decide on a possible advance into the mountain space in Naples.

482 8/6/2019 8:36:00 AM Summer 1944 Allied Message sorry. I've been swamped. Back from WBC last Sunday and was slammed at work post vacation. Then anniversary (which I forgot). I am finally freed up. Will get back to it tonight.
481 8/6/2019 8:21:00 AM Summer 1944 Axis Message Everything ok?
480 7/22/2019 8:43:00 PM Summer 1944 Axis Message Unfortunately you can't invade Taranto like that because I control Syracuse. One of the various RESTRICTIONS under rule 7.63 is - "No Allied invasions may take place at J (Marseilles), O (Naples), or R (Taranto) while the Axis control Syracuse." (Also, the BR 8A also comes in reduced.)

So with Husky you will have to invade at either Syracuse, Gela or Palermo in Sicily, or Salonika over in Greece.


I realize you won't be getting this for a few days. Hope you enjoy the conference. By the by, noting your comment on Husky being maybe too late, I have to imagine that's probably going to be the case. Just wanted to mention that We don't necessarily have to play this one out to the 'bitter end', if you will. Whenever we finish, either at the end or perhaps calling it early, I would be up for switching sides and restarting if you'd also be interested in that.

472 7/15/2019 7:59:00 AM Summer 1944 Axis Message One small thing first, but the Front that started in Tallinn could only move 2 spaces due to being OOS. Do you want that unit to go to Narva and then to Pskov or then to Luga? Luga, perhaps...?

470 7/13/2019 7:11:00 AM Summer 1944 Allied Message my bad then. I did a file to fix the loss and retreat but must have forgotten to send. I just did.
469 7/12/2019 9:12:00 PM Summer 1944 Axis Message Oh sorry, I was just waiting to advance at Jutland for you to make the adjustment to your losses there. The loss number was 6 but you had taken 7 losses by eliminating one LCU for 3 and flipping both the US and BR SCUs for 2 each. Was thinking could re-flip the US SCU back to full and eliminate the flipped BR SCU instead, or both LCUs would have had to be eliminated and then would be remaining 2x BR and 1x US full-strength SCUs instead. What you decide and then how you retreat would affect how I advance.
468 7/12/2019 8:23:00 PM Summer 1944 Allied Message SO I am incredibly confused. I thought that you wanted to advance at Jutland. The file you sent was the attack result with no advance at Jutland.

Sorry I'm being dense I guess.
467 7/11/2019 7:54:00 PM Summer 1944 Allied Message did you send a file?
466 7/9/2019 6:05:00 PM Summer 1944 Allied Message Did you also want to advance at Jutland?

It's just a land feature that unfortunately looks like a land path between them but it is not. Check the terrain key to see what I mean. You'll see that it's a map feature that doesn't match any of the paths listed, i.e. "Land", "River" or "SR Route". Every actual path in the game matches one of those three.
