127 4/22/2019 11:19:00 PM Turn 1 bob allies Message on the map, neither borg nor caen are the hardest vp.

i'm assuming catz is safely german and isig is safely allies. then the allies still need bocage or potig.

foret can easily be made impregnable. probably same for all the bocage. maybe it has to be potig? a massive artillery battle finale on 12?
126 4/22/2019 11:05:00 PM Turn 1 bob allies Message you asked about german decision not reinforcing troarn. I was surprised and sorta assumed you would reinforce. or bomb or something. i didn't realize analyze too closely but I felt happy when I saw so I guess that means I don't like the move.

to have a legit shot at troarn i needed to force basically all zone b to run to caen BEFORE going to work on troarn. either pilots or bombs needed to be hot to accomplish that.

as it were, i had to go all in for troarn. IF i clear troan i still have a shot to get BOTH caen and borg eventually. once you recontested, it knocked brits back 2 days bc they won't be able to retake it on 8th - assaulters are disrupted and plenty of germans around.
125 4/22/2019 10:52:00 PM Turn 1 nels germans Message It's an interesting board because I was eyeballing needing to win (and maybe able to win) even if Bourg fell.
124 4/22/2019 10:50:00 PM Turn 1 nels germans Message If you wanted to keep it going if, say, the re-roll stuffed those counterattacking units and booted them back to Bourg at D1, I'm game. It was well under 50/50 for the impulse to succeed, and by rights I should have been faced with with Troarn in British hands.
123 4/22/2019 10:46:00 PM Turn 1 nels germans Message That's a stunner, because it was nearly me writing it up the other way.

I think with Merville and Sword cleared those Zone A units need to move to Houlgate to get 5 units into Troarn on the 7th. I only had 3.

I'm not sure if I should divide 12ss the way I did. I don't like giving up on Merville, I think the Germans need to be able to threaten it. I'm inclined to divide 12ss on some boards.

I sure benefitted that it was a Caen game at the start of the 7th. Lehr and 12ss could both cover Caen and Troarn, with very little assigned to the center, just the one unit into Verson.

I'm interested in your thoughts on what the best German defense would have been.
122 4/22/2019 10:45:00 PM Turn 1 bob allies Message after dday, the brits were set up for twin towers. which means caen is big trouble long term.

your response to play for mb was excellent. it's a risk maximization move - which is required when behind. you NEEDED either mud or mb on 6th. got both for the kung fu kick.

mud 6a3 made the germans heavy favorites. you brickwalled the yanks and didn't need any units, any pluses any supply.

sending lehr to backdoor/caen is 100% correct move on this map. all of em. they don't do shit in middle.

on this map, the brits need to pick up caen, borg, and possibly one more. thus brits needed to achieve great things on 7th. something like a +15 cum dice day. instead I got the opposite.

thought experiment...if we reversed all the combat dice for 7th...then what does this map look like? it would certainly be competitive.

121 4/22/2019 10:23:00 PM Turn 1 bob allies Message Still enough.

Thatís game. Iíll write up debrief.
120 4/22/2019 10:22:00 PM Turn 1 nels germans Message I sure didn't expect that. I thought I might get a 6:6. an 8:6 I didn't even really think about until all the dice caught the interdiction asleep.

41 4/20/2019 11:12:00 AM Turn 1 nels germans Message Full disclosure. I made a mistake and I would blow Brett bridges if I were doing 6G1 again. It's better to be lucky than good.

Here are my thoughts:

This map is going to make it really hard for me to hold Tilly, maybe Villars, and Caen. I think the opening tells us that Caen is in grave danger.

It's possibly an overreaction, but my decision then is that it's best for me to shut down Utah. Most of what I want to do to defend Caen can't happen until a weather change anyway. The choice could cost me if I *don't* get the bridge, because Tilly + Merville + no magic bridge is an almost certain loss if Carentan falls. This is the 'Cara full care' board. ;)
