355 3/15/2019 3:39:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Misc: Your tactical play and rules knowledge seem to be good - you also effectively manage casualties and attrition in general.
354 3/15/2019 3:38:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message For this game, here are my thoughts:
* Paris and digging: Never again!
* Your Russian play still could use some refinement.
* Your Serbs could probably afford to be more feisty.
* Using 2-OPs cards for replacements is rarely worthwhile.
* You probably could stuck to the fort lline in France a little longer.
* You probably should have evacuated the Belgians.
* Once I had two trenched spaces next to Paris you were in deep trouble. Your Russians should be banging away on the Germans.

Anyway, we definitely can play again, I would request that we switch sides. My other tourney game is going now so my play could be slightly slower.
353 3/15/2019 2:48:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message After some thoughts, the best way to use the time is to resign and start a new one. Is that okay for you? And yes, feedback is welcome again.

GE10A advances into Paris from Melun.
Paris besieged.

I have no problem continuing, Peter. If you want more feedback along the way, just let me know. One word of caution - It is not in my nature to 'ease up', I'm always going to be playing as if lives were at stake. =)
349 3/15/2019 1:50:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message GE6 flips, which troops advance.

In general, I like it somehow to play beyond the point of reason, for 2 reasons: 1. there is some elegancy in losing if you try nevertheless to make the most of it. 2. The winning opponent should enjoy his victory as well, it aint fun if someone just gives up too soon if one is on the winning side.

Nevertheless I also realize that, if I want to stay a bit longer in the tournament, a lot of practice is needed. So I kindly request you, if we both possible have the time, to fill up the time untill next round.

347 3/15/2019 11:16:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message I enjoy playing the game in a way that educates myself as well, Peter! I know these games seem lopsided but hopefully you're getting something out of them. (I'm happy providing feedback and my thoughts on an ongoing match but usually restrain myself unless the person specifically has stated a desire for such.)

With Paris now falling, I do think the AP position will be very tough, having that CP trench there pretty much ensures France is history. I'm happy to debrief in more detail or play this out...

343 3/15/2019 10:06:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message The sequence of play (12.2) for combat details this but, basically, trench-busting cards are played, then flank resolutions, then remaining combat cards.

Now is the time to play "They Shall Not Pass" if you have it. ;)
342 3/15/2019 9:46:00 AM Winter 1916 Allies Message A Question, not that is that important, everything will go downhill rapidly I presume.

Others are correct
291 3/12/2019 3:29:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message I basically can't think of a situation where I'd EVER roll for a T2 there. I also don't even go to T2 on the French frontier spaces as the last thing you need is the CP stealing a VP on the last turn with a trench-busting attack in the West. =)
290 3/12/2019 3:25:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Yeah, definitely don't want T2 in Paris in this situation.

Can you confirm your Melun attack? Here's what I see:
Paris: FR4A, FR5A
Orleans: (BEF), FR7A, FR(c)
That adds up to 14, you'd drop to 9 because of the CP T1.

288 3/12/2019 3:20:00 PM Fall 1915 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #30: 4 / Salonika
Allied player must SRs at least one and up to 3 BR/FR Corps (from Allied ports on the map and/or Reserve) only to Salonika (ANA, AUS, CND, or PT do not qualify as BR for this purpose). This counts as a SR action (see 9.3.3). May be played after Greek Entry provided Salonika is Allied controlled and subject to stacking limits.
