1189 5/6/2020 11:20:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Good luck with your BPA game.. Hope you win it!! :)
1188 5/6/2020 11:13:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message thanks for the advice.
I did not play H-L, so I would first have to play it, and then use the trench busters, but as you said, the Western FL is too weak for me to hold on to that long.

Good point about the lumpy results.
I also feel that you are extremely efficient in your attack approach, targeting on GE. I needed to be better at getting AH into the late war too I feel, since my RP plays were being wasted for AH.

Ideally even the TU to attack RU.. but ofcourse that's more OPS.

Really good game.. Enjoyed all of them as always.
Well... May get back to you with another gaming request for PoG, one of these days in the near future :)

I have so many games going on these days, its not even funny :)

1187 5/6/2020 11:03:00 AM Summer 1918 Allies Message good game. I do think AP has the advantage now after a series of 7LF results. AP prefers that the results be lumpy, as they were. that is, streaks of no good results and then streaks of successful 7LF. if it stays close to average all the time it isn't to break through, and it is hard for CP to capitalize on good results.

one thing you are missing is the late game impact of H/L. it provides several trench busters that can be used to get RU capitulation going, but also for a late surge in the west to take a few VP. you aren't going to make it to that point this game, so it's OK to end it, but when analyzing the position you need to keep that in mind.

I've had a string of bad combats in the ME, where he rolls 6's 3 times out of 4. and I didn't get H/L yet, which is all I need to be able to play Fall of Tsar. it is one of the last 2 cards in my deck, same as Falk was near the end of my deck earlier in the game. I still have a chance, but it's tough.
1186 5/6/2020 10:52:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Also, hope your BPA game is going well. I have not followed it for a while now.
1185 5/6/2020 10:52:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Thanks for the game, and any insight from you side is appreciated.

One other thing, I always struggle to get AH into the game, late.. So an area for me to improve.


1184 5/6/2020 10:51:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Lets call it here in your favor!
Good game David..

I think the last round and a half has gone too much in AP favour with regards to the dice.

analyzing the game overall, if I played a defensive strategy, probably could have pushed for a 10 VP, draw.. But then where is the fun of it :-)

Other thing is, I had missed the T1 in Kovno. If I knew that, I think I would have probably held Huiter for that, but I think even with that die roll result there may not have help. Actually I think I would have probably put only 4 GE armies in Insterberg, and Biyalystock, entrenched and pressurised you in Kiev area. I still think it would have been a draw if I did that..

1106 5/1/2020 5:23:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message I try never to use Huttier against a forest hex, because the forest allows RU to cancel retreat, meaning you don't get to remove the trench. even if you had rolled a 7LF, Grodno would hold. much better is to target Kovno, which is clear. most games. :)

Not saying it is wrong here, just that it is an important point to consider.
