142 9/17/2020 4:12:00 PM Turn 1 German Message 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.
141 9/17/2020 3:54:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message Hey! Don't worry about it. Of course I did not know of your family issue. Really sorry to hear of it. Praying for his speedy recovery. Don't take time for the game until all is well.
140 9/17/2020 3:13:00 PM Turn 1 German Message been very distracted Son-in-law in ICU on a ventilator with COVID. I will look into it , sorry for the delay.
139 9/17/2020 2:51:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message Have just returned. Where do we stand. Believe you were going to check on a couple of your units.
138 9/6/2020 11:30:00 PM Turn 1 German Message I will look at it tomorrow

137 9/6/2020 11:04:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message 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.
135 9/6/2020 8:43:00 PM Turn 1 German Message you could also have used terrain to give you some OOS mods , like staying in the city, can be a real pain .
134 9/6/2020 6:54:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message 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.
133 9/6/2020 6:46:00 PM Turn 1 German Message 11o survies with its 1 hit 48x takes only one hit.
132 9/6/2020 6:43:00 PM Turn 1 German Message 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.

For S-2
129 9/6/2020 6:21:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message Whahoo! Clean sweep....except coincidentally for the Cav unit. The 6th which is toast anyway since it cannot move. How to watch the evaporation of an army. I will clean the board up.

BB-5 Ah, 6th Cav, thought it was 6th Inf - would have been a duplicate. In the swamp. A possible survivor?

Seems like a lot of trouble this rules does. There will be nary a unit left.
127 9/6/2020 4:19:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message Let's see if I can wrap this move up here.

126 9/4/2020 8:54:00 AM Turn 1 German Message otherwise within reason.
125 9/4/2020 1:25:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message 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?
Best
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.
119 9/1/2020 1:25:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Your dice were hot you did 7 hits to me out of an expected 3.33 hits
118 9/1/2020 1:20:00 PM Turn 1 German Message #1 5 = 2-1 AE
#2 3 = 2-2 1 Hit each unit R4
#3 4 = 1-0 W3
#4 4 = 2-1 Y5
#5 3 = 2-0 AE
#6 5 = 0-1FF8
#7 3 = 2-2 GG7
Well that was the last of the fair luck
#8 1 = 2-0 AE
#9 1 = 3-0 AE
#10 3 = 2-0 AE
117 9/1/2020 1:05:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message #1 5 = 2-1
#2 3 = 2-2
#3 4 = 1-0
#4 4 = 2-1
#5 3 = 2-0
#6 5 = 0-1
#7 3 = 2-2
Well that was the last of the fair luck
#8 1 = 2-0
#9 1 = 3-0
#10 3 = 2-0

115 9/1/2020 12:48:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message 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.
113 8/29/2020 11:14:00 AM Turn 1 German Message So you can not be in supply there.
112 8/28/2020 11:09:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message Can you remind me why you laid that mine?
111 8/28/2020 3:30:00 PM Turn 1 German Message yes
110 8/28/2020 12:58:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message 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.

Message from Russia:
Here we go for round 2 of air combat in J9.
108 8/28/2020 12:53:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message OK, let's see if I am pushing my luck too far. I suspect so. 2nd round of air combat at Battle Marker #1. The Odessa Sector is in dire straights. Been so long now, can't remember what the purpose of laying the mine at I8 was?
107 8/26/2020 9:11:00 AM Turn 1 German Message we stay
106 8/26/2020 1:09:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message Results 0-1 German air takes a hit. Another round or retreat?

Message from Russia:
Combat Marker 1.
104 8/26/2020 1:06:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message OK, the long awaited air combat has arrived. I will do that now. It even up 3-3 = 0
103 8/25/2020 2:26:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message Will perform that tomorrow.
102 8/24/2020 8:09:00 AM Turn 1 German Message yes
101 8/23/2020 11:53:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message 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.
91 8/11/2020 1:15:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message Well I guess I have completed my move. I am sending the log files. Turned out to be 3.
90 8/10/2020 1:58:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message Very tedious work here with little to work with. Have to search back in previous log file for this turn to find where some moved units came from. Will finish tomorrow.
89 8/7/2020 11:35:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message Out of town a couple of days. Will definitely have my move finished Sunday
88 8/4/2020 2:32:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message OK, I am getting close to finishing my movement. Wrapped it up for the evening.
87 8/4/2020 12:22:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message Yes you did. Not obvious to me until your explanation.
86 8/2/2020 10:59:00 AM Turn 1 German Message As I have said before you should investigate all the tools at the top ribbon,
85 8/1/2020 11:51:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message Thanks for the tips, will take a look.
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.
80 7/22/2020 12:43:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message 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.
76 7/13/2020 3:03:00 PM Turn 1 German Message EOT file sent.
75 7/12/2020 11:50:00 AM Turn 1 German Message yes it evacuates and is marked with a Do Not use marker
74 7/12/2020 2:20:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message You will see I have a question regarding the Baltic Naval Flotilla in my log file.
73 7/10/2020 12:32:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message OK, thanks.
72 7/9/2020 8:12:00 AM Turn 1 German Message Transferred units are fully usable only units that have to evacuate because of an enemy unit occupying their hex are do not use.
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. 7.7.1.1. 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.
70 7/5/2020 3:41:00 PM Turn 1 German Message yes I have the year wrong
69 7/5/2020 1:49:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message Germany launched Barbarossa in 1941. I should be able to spend some time today on RF. Thanks.
68 7/5/2020 10:10:00 AM Turn 1 German Message G-6-40-5
G= German
6= June
40 = 1940
5 = 5th file this turn
67 7/5/2020 1:58:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message Can you tell me how your numbering system works?
DB-MM (obvious) G-6-40-5?
66 7/4/2020 6:51:00 PM Turn 1 German Message 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.
65 7/4/2020 4:49:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message Let me know what I still have to do. Retreat from B2? And do you have a retreat from B19?
64 7/4/2020 4:40:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message I did look at the features but obviously not close enough. OK, good, you would do the hits.
63 7/1/2020 8:10:00 AM Turn 1 German Message The phasing player typically places the hits when he is resolving combat.

I live in Marietta GA North of Atlanta
62 7/1/2020 8:09:00 AM Turn 1 German Message You need to explore your game features. Across the top are tabs that include eliminated units, replacement units, Mines, the OOB, charts,
61 7/1/2020 12:54:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message What is next? And you never told me where you are located.
60 7/1/2020 12:53:00 AM Turn 1 Russia Message 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.
59 6/29/2020 10:29:00 PM Turn 1 German Message so you really can it leave it open to finish later
58 6/29/2020 10:28:00 PM Turn 1 German Message I think it only time outs when you do nothing for a while
57 6/29/2020 8:26:00 PM Turn 1 German Message I do not think you Vassal file was from my last file thus you lost me marking the unit hits ? Or you didn't scroll thru to the end .
I will from now on send a v-save file plus a log file
56 6/29/2020 8:23:00 PM Turn 1 German Message To return a eliminated unit to the map just drag and drop
55 6/29/2020 8:22:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Why not just look instead of printing?
54 6/29/2020 8:21:00 PM Turn 1 German Message If you are having trouble with time out, key it into a e-mail message the copy and only send in ACTS
53 6/29/2020 8:15:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Odessa mine look at message 47 48
52 6/29/2020 7:45:00 PM Turn 1 Russia Message OK, let's try this again. That was a real time waster.
Begining with:
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.
