I think i can find where we are, you have just resolved OOS for your units.

As I recall there were a couple of unit's location that needed to adjusted. Can't remember so I will have to take a look due to lack of memory.

Oh Michael. So sorry to hear such bad news. The world seems upside down the last 6 months for us with the Chinese Virus and all the fires that we have had burning into our city limits and for the last 3 years.
If you are ready to restart I believe there was a couple unit positions or sum such you were going to check. I will have to take a look to remember.
Again, really sorry for your family's loss. How is your daughter holding up?

Thank You! Actually the diversion is helpful as there is not much I can do, no visitors allowed and my daughter also has had it alone with the grandkids so I can not even visit them.

Some questions. Your 5th Air Flotilla moved 11 hexes. Was under the impression 10 hexes was it. And why is the 2nd German Flotilla out of supply? And your 1st Air was left in KK10 I believe.
|136||9/6/2020 11:01:00 PM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
With the movement potential of the Wehrmacht most of my limited movement units would have been in range and destroyed anyway.
"You could also have used terrain to give you some OOS mods, like staying in the city, can be a real pain. (?)
Oh you mean before I moved the OOS units. For sure but didn't remember that rule.

OK, missing a lot of detail with these new rules. I was looking at the rule book. I see on your sheet the altered rule.

11o survies with its 1 hit 48x takes only one hit.

that would apply to 13o 110 8o 35x 7x 48 x
|131||9/6/2020 6:40:00 PM||Turn 1||German||Message||
I believe that some of your OOS units survived see revised rule below, -1 to all units not adjacent to germans
OOS effects ( 18.1 & 18.2) , at no time did units simply vanish because they were OOS they had to be mopped up by follow up units. To more accurately reflect OOS conditions and pressure add 1 to the OOS die roll if the unit is adjacent to a enemy ground unit and substract one if it is not. This way OOS units can not simply be ignored.

Log file coming does not have have OOS die rolls. Will do that tomorrow. There are quite a few. Say, do you play cutthroat style or otherwise?
|124||9/3/2020 11:53:00 PM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
OK, I will start with a log file to place hits and moving retreating units as well as removing eliminated
units to begin with.
|123||9/2/2020 12:07:00 AM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
OK, I missed the message where you indicated where you were retreating. I see it now. Rule I am not used to. I will roll for the out of supply units. Should be much left after that.
|122||9/1/2020 11:06:00 PM||Turn 1||German||Message||
There is no more combat, you were either eliminated or I retreated.
Next you place hits and move retreating units from combat.
Then check supply and roll for hits then exploit move.
|121||9/1/2020 11:01:00 PM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
Yep, the luck held until the last three. That was substantially better than the norm. Needed some bright news with this fiasco. So I will move on and check which units of yours stand/retreat for a second round of combat. I think there were 2 or 3 chances for a second round. I need to do a logfile to catch up on the developments. Guess I will wait until ground combat if over.
|120||9/1/2020 2:23:00 PM||Turn 1||German||Message||
You have a few OOS units to roll to see how many hits they take.

I suspect we should get this misery over with. Terrible odds for attacking. 10 battles. This should pretty much clear out the front for you. Once the battles are completed I will do a log file with the results.
|114||8/30/2020 12:20:00 AM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
Yea, that's right. A sneaky little operation I see depicted in the General. Placement of my units could have lessened the effect a little bit I suspect.

So you can not be in supply there.

Yep, as suspected, the rout continues. Die roll of 1 with a 0 3-3 = 2-1. Russian eliminated and 1 hit on German air for total of 2 hits on the German air. From here I guess we go on to ground combat.

Looks like we have one air combat in J9. For a die roll do I click on "Submit Die Roll Request" on the right side? I am guessing I go through that way rather through the Vassal platform?
|100||8/21/2020 11:43:00 PM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
Did you send me a logfile of your air support change? 2 units flying to the same battle?
|99||8/18/2020 10:14:00 PM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
I guess that is my opinion so not very objective.
|98||8/18/2020 10:13:00 PM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
Actually I think I know the game fairly well (other than all the optional rules which I have little to no experience with) so I know you have an air response (non phasing air) to my attacks. Thanks. I will change that shortly.
|97||8/18/2020 9:35:00 PM||Turn 1||German||Message||
sure this time remember I get to see your air before I fly mine.
|96||8/18/2020 9:21:00 PM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
So before I conduct Air combat I lost track of one of my air units being under a ground unit. Inquiring as to whether I can use that one and you can adjust any air support you want to.
|95||8/16/2020 1:26:00 AM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
One screw up after another. Don't where I came up with 4 air battles. To the best of my count I see one. I goofed and missed using another one of my air flotillas with getting covered up. Whatever. I will check tomorrow to verify everyting. And move forward.
|94||8/15/2020 6:30:00 PM||Turn 1||German||Message||
well actually I haven't looked where your 3 rd air is it could be in range but there is no way we have more that 3 Air combat as you only have 3 air units
Air combat is between air units .
|93||8/15/2020 6:28:00 PM||Turn 1||German||Message||
since you only have 3 Air units I do not think you have 4 air combats and one air is way out of range ?
|92||8/15/2020 4:46:00 PM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE 4 AIR COMBATS TO RESOLVE NEXT. iF I AM MISSING ANYTHING LET ME KNOW OR I WILL PROCEED WITH THE DIE ROLLS.

|84||7/31/2020 2:10:00 PM||Turn 1||German||Message||
Keeping track of units that have move is easy. Clear the "moved" tab along the top and then when you move a unit it will show in the upper left of the Unit counter a yellow box with 4 >>>> symbols. That means they have moved.
You clear all moved symbols by hitting the tab that I believe has a vertical MOV in a black box.
|83||7/31/2020 1:51:00 PM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
Am working on my move. Keeping track of units moved not as easy as board. Funny, so few units to keep track of. Message just let you know I am working on it.
|82||7/26/2020 2:22:00 AM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
Yep, familiar with the space and troops trade off. However, I have never has such a dismal and disastrous beginning. (A testament to you proficiency with RF compared to mine) I see I could have done much, much better with more studying of the layout at the start. I am starting now to try and salvage something.
|81||7/22/2020 1:24:00 PM||Turn 1||German||Message||
As I explained this is not unusual for an opening attack, now you have the challenge of placing your next line where that will not happen again. You have just so many units now but you have a lot of space!
You can give me units to kill and I will then take the space anyway or you can give me space and save your units.

Why isn't 4A in Q4 out of supply?
|79||7/22/2020 12:31:00 AM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
Well it seems to be a disaster on almost every front especially Odessa....or I should say all of them. Far worse than it could have been. Once the rout begins (and it has begun) there is not much that can be learned. Hope to have my move done by Friday. All the extra rules are definitely working against me.
|78||7/17/2020 5:18:00 PM||Turn 1||German||Message||
I understand your shock but I can assure you this board situation is not at all unusual. I could quibble witht he location of a unit or two but overall a reasonable positions for your units.
So far the only error you have mad is opposing the minesweep not understanding that Naval moves comes before air and I can add air , and you decisions to pull out of some combats thinking that the could retreat and then move out. I also have had opening where I saved on 3-4 units like you can.
But this is how you learn.
|77||7/17/2020 1:14:00 AM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
Well that became an amusing finish to your turn. I knew there was a reason we never played with units taking hits for more movement factors. From the looks of the board this game is almost over. I am not up to your level of play having not played for a few years and am not at your proficiency level. And I did not do my homework very well to find a way to slow your advance more. I will start working on my 1st move.

|71||7/9/2020 12:47:00 AM||Turn 1||Russia||Message||
OK, I will do a log file for my non phasing returns and transfers. But I believe that if I transfer an air Flotilla then I cannot use it in combat during my turn. 220.127.116.11. Please confirm that. I would like to go slower (not overall) your next turn as I could not keep up with you with all the new systems for me and there were some oversights that were not in my favor. Not that that will make mcuh difference.

Please look at the last map I sent you I have long since retreated from B19 and You expressed the desire to retreat from B2
Message #45 I retreated from B19
Message #48 B2 Odessa Mine results were 0-1r assume you want to retreat
ALL the above has been communicated and is in the last file I sent labeled DB-MM-G-6-40-5
Also when I sent the message and in the file is what you need to do next,
What is next look at the SEQUENCE OF Play, we have resolved combat and now on step 4:b:1) Non phasing Return and Transfer.
I will again list what you option are: return all air and naval that were used in combat to any base in their range.
Any air or naval not used in combat may transfer to any base within twice their movement allowance.

Drag the eliminated unit from where? I did not place the hits, I thought you might do that. I will from now on. I am copying everything as I go so I don't miss anything. I really don't like not seeing the messages when this window comes up. I have to copy and go back, then paste when I come back to this window. I will get the hang of it in time.

OK, let's try this again. That was a real time waster.
Battle 13 - Soviet Armor is eliminated, unable to retreat
Battle 10 - Soviet unit retreats to CC6.
Battle 9 - Soviet unit retreats to BB5.
Battle 15 - Soviet unit retreats to KK8.
Battle 14 - Soviet unit retreats to JJ7.
Battle 12 - Soviet unit retreats to EE7
Battle 10 - Soviet unit retreats to DD6.
Battle 4 - Soviet unit retreats to N7.
Battle 5 - Question, this is a +3 with a DR of 4 = 0-1. I am not sure if I removed 5A from the hex or not. I don't know how to recover that unit after elimination. Soviet unit retreats to R9.
Battle 20 - Soviet unit retreats to Q6.
Battle 19 - Again, a question. A -2 with a DR of 4 is 1R-0 not 0-1R.
Finn B1 - Soviet unit retreats to SS18.
Finn B2 - Soviet unit retreats to VV20.
We still need a die roll for the mine sweeping gig in Odessa. I will send you a log file of all of this except relating to my questions and anything else I missed. I didn't go through all the battles etc to look for errors or questions other than those mentioned. Too far behind.
There were still some Soviet units that were eliminated still on the board so I removed them.
