137 7/17/2019 6:57:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message I think we are good Brian.
Iíll play first card, which Iím only doing to try to delay Italy from coming in...
136 7/17/2019 3:04:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message Iím not actually sure what the map is called, but the one you sent last night appears to be right. I believe the ďofficialĒ rule set is the 2018 deluxe edition rules (available at the GMT website), with the historical scenario VP modifications listed in Rule 5.7.
135 7/17/2019 2:06:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Just to confirm, we are playing on the VASSAL map for WBC 2013?
Itís not really confusing, itís just that my baseline at this age is ďconfusedĒ.

134 7/17/2019 1:49:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message The variety of maps is very confusing. I just compared the updated file you sent last night with my file and it looks like we are now on the same page. Unless you noticed any inconsistencies that I missed, I think we are ready for the Great Turkish Offensive of Winter 1914-15!
133 7/16/2019 11:01:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message Just discovered that I am playing on the wrong map!
I guess I should be on the 2013 WBC Map.
Will redo map and send it later tonight.
This should help a lot!

112 7/15/2019 11:57:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message Sounds good, Robert. Tournament OOS rules work for me. Iíll await your next move!
111 7/15/2019 11:33:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Thanks Brian,
I found the reference you cited. If it's OK with you, lets go with the Tournament OOS Warning as written. Cleaning house for sale this morning, so will get last card up this afternoon.
110 7/15/2019 6:20:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message I believe the competition rules say that OOS warning are not required if an attack and advance after attack is required to put a space OOS. However, I have in the past given OOS warnings in that situation and would be fine with playing that they are required. Itís never fun to have units destroyed because you didnít see an OOS issue!

However, in the example you gave, you would have to stop in Warsaw before moving to Brest (because of the fort) and I think you would need either two Corps or an army to move into the Warsaw space.

In other words, if you want to play with traditional OOS warnings, you
are allowed to try to cut off Ivangorod. If you want to play with ďadvance after combatĒ OOS earnings, I will consider myself warned and will give appropriate warnings going forward.
109 7/14/2019 9:14:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Brian,
I know we are playing with supply warnings, but I just noticed this. I don't even know if this would fall under supply warnings. But, if Tannenberg attacks Lomza, Przemsyl attacks Lublin, and the Corps in Oppeln move to Warsaw and Brest, I think I would be isolating the Russians in Ivangorod. Does this fall under supply warnings?
108 7/14/2019 6:39:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Thank you for the explanation Brian!
Still getting this thing figured out.
Terrified of all those near east rules...

106 7/14/2019 6:06:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message The only significance of the Sarajevo move is that it flips Sarajevo to AP control, so you canít SR or trace supply through that space (at least until you flip it back). Whether it will have any strategic impact I donít know, but it also didnít cost me anything.

Thanks for confirmation on Belfort!
94 7/12/2019 8:46:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message Hi Robert, I think you are correct ó if an attack results in more LF remaining than the strength of the fort after all defending units have been eliminated, the fort is destroyed. Good catch! Since you were attacking on 3a, a 4-6 would have eliminated the (FrC) and destroyed the fort. Since you rolled a 2, however, just the (FrC) is destroyed and the fort is besieged.

Iíll stand by my play of Br Reinforcements, so the action is back to you whenever you are ready.
