125 12/9/2018 8:31:00 PM Turn 1 49er (Allies) Message What hoping for a bit more play off of Dourves, but being 7A5, it was about time to continue activating it and seeing what happens with solo assaults to see if the day ends and then follow up with something into Troarn.

As it turned out things went the other way with the first assault over toward Merville ending the day, so getting Caen contested was a suitable secondary effect.

Failure to get into Isigny hurt a bit, but having Foret already contested and the Lehr in shambles should give me some decent threats on the 8th. A bit of crossed supply lines, but that is the negative effect of this idea which I knew going in, figuring the extra supply saved clearing Omaha last turn allowed me to splurge this turn.

In retrospect I should have FA bombarded Grandcamp before using my US Air to deter you from moving another unit into Isigny, though you made a tempting target in St.Jores.

On St.Jores, you still have 2AP more that needed applying as one of those fresh units is spent before figuring out your refits.

I assume you mean the Lehr Flak went to Zone D? I marked it as such in the file as I think that is what you meant, else you can change it back that it stayed fresh in C.

7A1b US Air into Jores target spent inf 5:2
101 12/6/2018 11:27:00 AM Turn 1 49er (Allies) Message That was exceptionally tearful. Especially with American's and Brits plowing up the center.

I am keeping true to our final though, with roll down in Foret assault and whimpy Caen bombardment. So giving you some hope.

Wrecked Lehr though puts the Germans behind a big eight ball which blocks much of their hopeful view.

Still lots of rolls and turn to go though and I don't have the Advantage so once impulse 3 hits short days are in the cards. (err dice)

I'll get the map updated after work and have to take a look at things before my next pulse. Previously I had my set plans and was just clipping them off without looking per se. Probably unwise, as I did miss your great move to vacate an Isigny unit from my US naval guns. I did have a nice triple play with the Brit armor envisioned there with Grandcamp+Isigny... but nothing gets by the reigning BKN champ! :-)

88 12/5/2018 10:45:00 AM Turn 1 49er (Allies) Message sorry missed that move, just saw the balleroy move to foret. so much with making moves without looking at a map.

so there is just 1 unit in isigny? if that is the case, the letting the pulse stand seems find with me since the one unit is the only target available. feel free to do the reroll if you want and continue on as I will still hit isigny with the us naval.
87 12/5/2018 10:08:00 AM Turn 1 Patton (Germans) Message Hmmm. Thereís no flak in isig - I moved it out the previous pulse (itís almost like I knew it was about to get bombed)

Iím thinking that should be an invalid order. You can choose a different action or if you still want to bomb isig inf then roll new dice.

Do you agree?
86 12/5/2018 7:44:00 AM Turn 1 49er (Allies) Message as for your CP, the balleroy had a 2DV I think (still haven't looked at a map) so it was a 12:5 assault, rolled down 4=3CP -1cp for bocage, so yes 2CP would be the damage.

it was another idea I had last night with all these crazy high and low roll differences, having -10 to +10 variance, I wondered if the game might be better if the variance fell between -6 to +6 with a 2d4 system?
