20 7/2/2019 9:02:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Ok thanks. On the basis I have total holiday brain I'll not do anything else till this weekend now.
19 7/2/2019 8:24:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message I happen to know that Paul is travelling the next couple of days and has limited or no connectivity so I have just gone ahead and set up a new game - BPA VIII R2G08 Redux

Let's just use that one and Paul can close this one down when he is back online
18 7/2/2019 8:19:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Shall I email Paul and ask him to reset the cards or set a new game up?

11 7/2/2019 7:45:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message >I will set myself to the AP then log out then you need to change yourself to the CP, log out then log in again and we can start

Correction, I will set you as CP and log out then you need to set me as AP, log out and then we can start
10 7/2/2019 7:44:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Nope, that looks all good. Only thing I would add is noting movement of corps to/from the RB

I will set myself to the AP then log out then you need to change yourself to the CP, log out then log in again and we can start
9 7/2/2019 7:39:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message So use the recommended scenario. I'll roll orders. Defender rolls combat. Use supply warnings. I dont exchange files but can if you want to.

Anything else?

8 7/2/2019 7:35:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message Ok the Allies are yours.
7 6/27/2019 4:27:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message I think that would be a bit too easy for you :-)

I will bid 1 for the AP
6 6/26/2019 12:44:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message We could sort sides out though.

I'll bit 0 for the allies.
5 6/26/2019 12:43:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Hi Dominic

I think we've played B2B. When Jay used to run a tournament.

I live in the UK - Birmingham- and I'm also on holiday but for another 10 days so wont be able to much until I'm back (7th July probably) But after that I can move most days.

4 6/24/2019 6:12:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hi Andy,

Am pretty sure we have met before across the virtual table but if not, nice to meet you and here's to a good game.

I am based in Sweden (GMT +1) but travel a fair bit on business so there may be down times. When i am at home I can make multiple moves in a day.

I am actually travelling right now with limited access so won't be really able to start until the weekend. In any event, the dice have decided that you should have the first bid so we can at least sort out sides before i get home.

Best of luck (but not too much!),

2 6/24/2019 1:31:00 AM August 1914 Moderator Message Welcome to Round Two of the BPA VIII Paths of Glory Tournament!

Most have been through this before (many times now!) so you probably know what to do: I'll be your game moderator and should be your first point of contact for any issues related to this match. My overriding priority for this match is to make sure it's fun and fair for both players. That means sportsmanship is expected at all times and issues are to be resolved equitably.

Contacting the Moderator: I am currently in Thailand (GMT +7) but will be in UK for at least some of this game. I am usually online at least twice a day and thus will generally respond to all match questions within 24 hours. If you need to contact me, e-mail me directly at "paulhubbard@hotmail.co.uk" referencing your match # when you do so. ACTS does not send the moderators all posted messages and as we all have multiple games to moderate, we do not read through the logs of individual games with any regularity so direct contact is needed. Unless of a confidential nature, please ALSO CC your opponent and put your question/issue in the log and I'll make sure I post a response there as well. If I do not respond within 48 hours, please ask one of the other GMs (Tom: gregorit@yahoo.com or Michael: mdauer92@yahoo.com).

Issue Resolution: If either player has a concern about a particular ruling or resolution I make, feel free to escalate to the other GMs. I will also discuss with Tom and Michael if there's something I'm not sure of. Please remember that the ACTS logs are viewable for all, direct exchanges with your opponent are obviously permitted but GMs will view the ACTS logs as the authoritative record of the game.

Getting Started: Here are my thoughts on how to get the match started:

- Introduce yourselves and set expectations regarding your availability and game pace.
- Agree on the scenario. The default is the WBC Historical Scenario as described on the POG Tournament Page and I strongly recommend its usage.
- Agree on usage of supply warnings. They are strongly recommended.
- There is no mandatory usage of a particular PBEM tool. VASSAL is recommended but not necessary and exchanging game logs is also optional.
- Bid for sides. (Initial bidder is to be random, one of you just roll a die with a 50-50 shot of that player bidding first). Switch sides in ACTS if necessary. If you do switch sides yourselves, remember to LOG OUT of ACTS completely to avoid danger of drawing your opponent's cards.
- Draw cards. CP will then kick off the fun by rolling the turn 1 MO and playing their first card.

The official launch date for this round is Wednesday 26 June when Tom will send out a round robin to all but feel free to start your match immediately. This round is scheduled to complete on October 30, giving 126 days to complete. Please keep each other informed and if you will be offline for any extended periods, and if you fall behind schedule then some extra effort may be needed to catch up. The GMs all HATE to have to adjudicate unfinished games but we will where necessary and a slow player will almost always be deemed to be the loser.

Play well, keep up the pace and, above all, Have Fun!
