269 7/12/2020 6:29:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message This makes good sense! I will apply your suggestion. Let's fix the move as you pointed out and I'll reassess the damage.
268 7/11/2020 5:41:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message This is what I suggest :

- my basic principle was to support Battle B with replaceable units and a total defense of at least 31 in order to save Ryujo ;
- with South seas HQ, I could not activate Yamato, so I would have activated 25 and 27AF instead (Tenryu, Ryujo and Junyo would not have been activated) ;
- dice remain the same, but with 25 and 27 instead of Yamato, and you reallocate damage as desired.

What do you think ?
267 7/11/2020 9:25:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Ah Quite right! My mistake. Shokaku is fine!

I don't quite know how to handle it. We could ask Chris Crane who is the Empire of the Sun GM as to how he would handle a situation like this? I'll ask him.

It's a simple mistake, not born of malice. No money on the table. We can either let the situation continue as is or redo.

While I await your thoughts I will correct the battle results:

* 3520 (Hollandia) : [CL Tenryu] suffers a step loss.
* : [CVL Ryujo] is eliminated
* : 28 AF is eliminated
266 7/11/2020 3:42:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Damn ! How do we manage this ?


Besides, Shokaku was taking part in Battle A, not B.
265 7/10/2020 8:05:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message I think the ACTS server punished you because technically speaking Combined Fleet isn't allowed to react because it's 14 hexes from Kure to Hollandia, thus no battle hexes within its range.

Obviously I'm fine with the results :-)

* : [CVL Ryujo] is eliminated
* : CV Shokaku is eliminated

That's 32 out of 38 hits, 6 go unused.
