142 10/23/2019 5:50:00 AM Turn 1 Michael Message All 3 land attacks in Russia and Finland were below average rolls. However, the Russians were high enough attacks, for the most part this did not matter. The most risky attack was in Finland and they went really poorly. Your great attack rolls and my poor rolls have continued in Finland. I have attacked 3 times and rolled below average all 3 times. You have attacked twice and rolled well above average both times. That is 5/5 in your favor in Finland, which is what I am reporting to Churchill for why Montgomery can't advance on Helsinki.

131 10/23/2019 5:05:00 AM Turn 1 Michael Message Just thought of this:

The following countries get unlimited gearing this turn:

CW
Free-France
USA
Germany
Italy
Vichy France if we are playing USA was required to DOW them to get Total War Production Multiple.

By the Way, we have never done Vichy production. They have had 1 resource every turn, and possible an oil from Iraq for 1 or 2 turns. You get to spend or not spend their BPs when you have initiative, and I when I have the initiattive. We can retroactively do this if you like.
130 10/23/2019 5:00:00 AM Turn 1 Michael Message I forgot to announce 2 back-up Reserve Units. I setup them up as Reserves, but forgot to announce it in ACTS. I will flip these units as I intended them to be reserves. I would have had them advance if I had won the combat, so I must take my penalty if I expect to have taken my reward.
129 10/23/2019 4:57:00 AM Turn 1 Michael Message 13 net roll.

Allies lose 2 units (para-div and Inf-div)
Finnish lose 1 unit. Likely the ski div. Your call. I will take the ski-div off. You can exchange it on your impulse if you like.
128 10/23/2019 4:53:00 AM Turn 1 Michael Message Knew I would blow my early great attack rolls and not extend the streak on important rolls in and near Russia.

Message from Michael:
CW Blitz attack in Finland. Paradiv drop. Adding the 1-factor Finnish notional does not make sense.

18 vs 13 = +2.7
1 Corps Flipped = +2
HQ Differnential = +1
Paradiv Drop = +0.5

Total +6.2 Blitz Normal Dice Order (Last roll is go up roll), 66% chance of taking the hex.


126 10/23/2019 4:48:00 AM Turn 1 Michael Message CW will use HQ support. Finland has little downside to using defensive HQ support, thus I will use it for you. The turn is likely to end and there is little else for this Finnish HQ to do this turn.
125 10/23/2019 4:46:00 AM Turn 1 Michael Message CW Blitz Attack on Finland lead hex.

Finland could fly their lone bomber, however in forest this would only add 1 factor to defense. Additionally, CW has 2 FTRs ready to intercept the Finnish bomber which has no FTR escort. The CW would be +6.5 in the air with both FTRs which includes an 8 - factor lead FTR. Thus, I will not use your Finnish bomber. If this was Helsinki, it would be a no-brainer no matter the odds, but this is only an adjacent hex to the capital. The bomber is essentially meaningless.

18 vs. 13 = 2.

123 10/23/2019 4:31:00 AM Turn 1 Michael Message 21 Result. Blitz shatters the Japanese unit instead of killing it. If you choose Assault, the Japanese unit is destroyed and the Chinese half-flip instead of no flip. No Chinese loses either way.

121 10/23/2019 4:28:00 AM Turn 1 Michael Message China Attack #2

+5.3 Using 2 Partisans to attack with 3 Commies against Japanese 3-1 Garrison.

I will assume Blitz to have a better chance of saving your unit. 2 resources are already cutoff so losing this hex is not as important as keeping your unit alive. Additionally, China can lose easily replaced Partisans so attrition does not favor Japan, despite the relatively weak Japanese unit. If you honestly want Assault, you can retroactively change to assault, but please decide before the dice roll if possible.
120 10/23/2019 4:20:00 AM Turn 1 Michael Message 3 Japanese convoys sunk, 2 Japanese convoys are captured by the Chinese.

Assume you took an air mission to fly this out to sea instead of reacting him earlier. Thus, USA needs 5 surprise points to call a sub combat. No go. Thus USA subs decide to choose the single Japanese cruiser in the 3 box with 2 surprise points.
