305 12/26/2018 10:45:00 PM Turn 9 Patton (Germans) Message gg.

that ending is worthy of csw post.
304 12/26/2018 10:45:00 PM Turn 9 49er (Allies) Message good game. was definitely a wild one. but good to have had this one wrap up with R3 starting. would have been a glorious finals writeup!

i agree, I figured you would have to double to cover lessay, though I could throw a couple singles at that too, but it would have kept the game alive
303 12/26/2018 10:43:00 PM Turn 9 49er (Allies) Message thanks. even better odds of the 2/FA managed to flip a unit or two. I agree covering it would have been possible, but even with that I would have had a roll possibility, though much lower odds of clearing any single unit that might have been protecting, but contesting would have been good enough for heavily hampering any re-supply of Cara

Message from Patton (Germans):
good point. I should reroll. I doesn't really matter tho. I need adv for double pulse to cover lessay.
300 12/26/2018 10:39:00 PM Turn 9 Patton (Germans) Message that play was brilliant. you needed even dice at perier to give you near certain win. hell yeah.

obviously, a terrible oversight on my part. I was planning on running zone e troops, but just wasting time to see how far I needed to run. I could have easily covered the coast with one troop.

Message from 49er (Allies):
10+1=11 CP, -1 for bocage = 10CP which should be enough to kill all 3 units in Periers

continuing impulse, the 1st/inf in Perier which did not assault waiting with 2MP, so has 3MP left tries to seize the bridge to Lessay and then moves to capture Coutances.

273 12/26/2018 6:32:00 PM Turn 9 Patton (Germans) Message a couple thoughts on this map.

your decision to ignore catz and go for jean instead was excellent. jean is so much more valuable to get early.

what was the consequence of the lehr air debacle on 7th. ask jean, she knows. I hated to leave a lone unit, but that's all I had in the cupboard.

I think I should have peeled off a unit or two from backdoor to to defend perier. I needed to do that BEFORE you cleared bc I needed to try bridges after clear.

256 12/23/2018 6:41:00 PM Turn 9 49er (Allies) Message It was a tough decision on what to do there. Both Air were active and St.Lo and Villars were good looking targets, but 5:3 might not amount to anything. Cara or Periers were also good looking, but risked mistaken attacks.

Brett getting fresh again would have cost a couple more impulses next turn which I felt was more important than some more supply costs with an Air to keep some pressure up the middle with the brits and allow my corp/FA to regroup forward if I cleared Brett. I also needed Bayeux's 2vp still, so taking a 1 unit shot at that too seemed like the best option that needed to get done if I assumed I only had 1 impulse left this turn. (which turned out so, and ironically, was the order reason behind my assaults too, figuring a day end would be <7 AV which could blow up an assault, so if I had an assault fail the 1 unit one would hurt less than the full division one into Brett.)

If the day continued, then I figured I can start messing around with Air strikes to see what else might open.

I also had the 29th division assault into st.lo a possibility but only 10:9 and not sure how much it really would do toward winning the game per se while risks a stack of d1 allies or double supply costs with them stuck in st.lo. It isn't like I will be clearing St.lo in this game I figure, so pulses wasted there didn't make sense.

I started with the st.lo bombardment more to see if I could flip your big counter attack unit and maybe draw some zone E units in that direction before I tried to surround Cara and/or cut the pennisula. I didn't want to have that unit hitting Isigny when it was vacated of everything but spent FAs which might have occurred if the dice fell a bit different in my push past Cara.

In the end, looks like an ugly german map regardless.

209 12/18/2018 11:24:00 AM Turn 1 49er (Allies) Message Yeah, it was a tough decision. With your bad luck in Troarn I feel the map is tilted pro-Allies and blowing two rolls into Cara would free a lot of pressure on that area of the map. Besides, with all those units, any low odds assault will just cost you some supply but that is about it. It would cost me much more and I wouldn't be able to refit everyone.

Not taking a Brit Naval into Caen just to cost supply was probably me over thinking your pass. I really didn't want to have a weather change and possible 8:4 counter attack with your armor into Troarn as that would eat a slew of allied supply, much more than maybe a couple units flipping in Caen.

So yeah, another less bold move from the 49er to hold off on Cara in the heat of battle along with the typical surprises to be had. So far a much more notable write-up would have been possible if this was the WBC final due to all the unique happenings. But the conquered only have 'what could have beens' to live with! lol

Oh and other uniqueness in this game.. freak'n Brit armor lost among the GIs.
