368 12/6/2019 2:33:00 AM Turn 10 Germans-Hammond Message By "be conservative or make mistakes if you wanted" I meant "be conservative or take risks" - like take some 'slot areas' - in this game, St Jean, Balleroy, and Evrecy
367 12/6/2019 2:31:00 AM Turn 10 Germans-Hammond Message If I had only one comment it would be that in order to win vs strong German players assuming fairly even dice, the Allies have to make 'kill stacks' - as big as possible, and on every turn. Early in the game that means 14-15 attack factors (AF). 5 units, including two divs and their arty. We call that a 'bridge team' as 5 units is how many can cross a bridge, to assault the next adjacent area. To have less than 15 factors should only be for a 2nd wave - we call that a 'strike team' - one that enters an area just cleared (say, Bayeux), and continues past it to the next area (say, Foret or Balleroy).

But on the 9th and later, the Allied player really wants to try to make kill stacks that are 3 or even 4 divs in one stack. Which can can an AF of around 19 to 23. That large of a threat makes it *so* much harder for the German to defend, especially if the area threatened is already contested, with a high MF cost for the Germans to enter.

The Allies can make a 3-div stack as early as the 7th, with the Brits vs Caen. Either with a huge stack in Douvres (usually) or via a double impulse.

Generally I thought you played well and were valuing the right objectives. You took Caen early so you had lots of room to be conservative or make mistakes if you wanted. If anything I'd point out there's a lot of value in taking the "slot" areas which once in Allied possession, badly stretch the German lines: Troarn, Verson/Evrecy, Balleroy, St. Jean, even Montebourg in some games.
366 12/6/2019 2:12:00 AM Turn 10 Allies-Greenman Message Hi Kevin,

Thanks. I think I was extremely fortunate in my dice timing, and overall pip-count.

Would love to hear your thoughts on the game and feedback.

my best,
Mark
365 12/6/2019 2:09:00 AM Turn 10 Germans-Hammond Message Are you open to any constructive feedback?
364 12/6/2019 2:08:00 AM Turn 10 Germans-Hammond Message Well you've got 9.6 VPs and now it looks like Foret will fall. And with St Lo contested, any hope of me holding Carentan is probably gone. So I concede, congrats on the win and good luck in Round 2 : )
