Entry # Time Turn Player Title Entry
11 6/27/2020 7:58:00 AM Turn 1 German Message OK, will make the following advances and let you update on your map ...

#1 at Echternach: D4, you may advance 4

[212/423 advances to 0725; 212/320, 212/315 and 276/987 advance to Echternach]

#2 at Vianden: D3, you must advance your bridge builder, but just one hex. You can advance the 3-3-3 inf 3 hexes, but all others can only advance across the river because they didnít start next to it. You can have at most 3 units in Vianden at the end of your movement (technically, the bridge build occurs at the end of the turn, after advances)

352/914 to 1230; 5/13, 5/14 and 26/39 advance to Vianden. Then 5/15 builds in bridge and also ends Vianden

#6 at 1220: 1D2, you may advance up to 2 units. Presumably you will trap 106/424/

560/1130 advances to 1220 and 116/156 advances to 1219

#8 at 1019: 1D1, I have eliminated the unit on the assumption it will have been surrounded. You may advance any units except Nwf into the hex (no road bonus on German first turn)

Advance all 4 Pz Lehr units and Mantueffel from 0919 to 1019

#9 at 0714, D4, advance up to 4 hexes

18/294 advance to 0915; 3/9 advance to 1013; 18/295 advance to 0914; 3/5 advances to 0714

#10 at 0712, D2, advance up to 2 hexes

12/27, 12/89 advance to 0811; 12/48 advance to 0811

#11 at 0710, D2, ditto 2 hexes

277/990, 277/991 advance to Rocherath Krinkelt, 277/989 also advance to Rocherath Kinkelt

#12 at Hofen, D3. only inf can advance. The units at 0905 must stop after crossing river, the one at 0805 can go at most 2, because it pays 2 to enter the rough terrain of Hofen.

326/752 and 326/753 advance to 0906, 326/751 advances to 0806

1 = 1D2

A phenomenal series of low rolls --- nothing lower than a 4!

I will enter the retreats and will send you a file in which you can incorporate your advances. I will accompany the vlog with a list of the advances you have to make.

8 6/26/2020 3:56:00 PM Turn 1 German Message OK, thanks for the tweaks, I will go with Option B - you go ahead and roll!


7 6/26/2020 3:44:00 PM Turn 1 American Message I wanted to get things moving, so I'm sending you a new vsav tweak. If you are okay with this, then all you need to do is pick your option below for #9 and #10 and I can then proceed with rolls.

Combats to be used in conjunction with tweak3 vsav
I've incorporated my artillery into the following.
If you still think there is something to be changed, then we'd need another tweak and maybe a revision of these combats.

#1: 0533/Echternach with 408A, 32:8 shift left = 3:1 (-1 ER)

#2: 1129/Vianden with 406A, 41:10 shift left = 3:1 (-1 ER) + bridge build
9CCA can't cross the river, so you are safe. I moved two inf units into 1029 to bring the odds up where you wanted them

#3: Our River before Clervaux - Surprise needs 5 or 6

#4, with 766A, 42:10 shift left (+ surprise?) = 3:1 (0 ER) + bridge build

#5: 1220, surprise needs 5 or 6

#6: 1220 - with 401A 21:5 = 5:1 (0 ER)
+ 333A and 174A on defense becomes 21:14 (+ surprise?) = 1:1 (0 ER)
-- possible advance to 1219 (preferred) or 1120 -- you can decide once we get the rolls

#7: 1019, surprise needs 4-6 (we'll see what the roll is even though the odds vs 1019 are already maxed out, so we don't have to renumber combats)

#8: 1019 53:4 shift left = 6:1 (0 ER)
The shift is always taken after all other modifiers, so max against forest or rough is 6:1. OK

----

There's a choice of using 388A on 0712 or 0714. I'm showing them both ways. Let me know which one you want.

Option A

#9A: 0714 with 388A, 26:4 shift left = 6:1 (0 ER)
+ 402A on defense becomes 26:10 shift left = 1:1 (0 ER)

#10A: 0712, 23:5 shift left = 3:1 (0 ER)

Option B

#9B: 0714, 20:4 shift left = 4:1 (0 ER)
+ 402A on defense becomes 20:10 shift left = 1:1 (0 ER)

#10B: 0712 with 388A, 29:5 shift left = 4:1 (0 ER)

----

#11: 0710, with 402A, 22:5 shift left = 3:1 (0 ER)

#12: Hofen - adjacent with 405A vs 99/395 + 406A shift left, 21:5 = 3:1 (0 ER)
+ 406A on defense = 21:10 shift left becomes 1:1 (0 ER)

6 6/25/2020 4:54:00 PM Turn 1 German Message So then revised total position is:

(I have left in a couple of queries)

#1: 0533/Echternach with arty 408, 32:8 shift left = 3:1 (-1 ER)

#2: 1129/Vianden, 40:10 shift left = 3:1 (-1 ER) + bridge build

#3: Our River before Clervaux - Surprise needs 5 or 6

#4, with arty 766 42:10 shift left = 3:1 (0 ER) + bridge build

#5: 1220, surprise needs 5 or 6

#6: 1220 - with Arty 5PZA 21:5 = 4:1 (0 ER) -- possible advance to 1219 (preferred) or 1120 [Query - you have a shift left here, but its Light Woods?]

#7: 1019, surprise needs 4-6

#8: 1019 58:4 shift left = 6:1 (0 ER)
The shift is always taken after all other modifiers, so max against forest or rough is 6:1. OK

#9: 0714, 20:4 shift left = 4:1 (0 ER)

#10: 0712, + arty 6PZA 23:5 shift left = 3:1 (0 ER)

#11: 0710, 22:5 shift left = 3:1 (0 ER)

#12: Hofen - adjacent with 405A vs 99/395 + 406A shift left, 21:5 = 3:1 (0 ER) [Query: you had the defence doubled here, but I think its rough not town?]

5 6/25/2020 4:43:00 PM Turn 1 German Message OK, apologies for the brainstorm, but I forgot that bridge-building wasn't automatic ...

I'll do a point by point update in this log, then do a revised summary of the final position ahead of your arty allocation. So:

#2 Vianden - yes, I do want to build a bridge - 26/39 will adjust its move to end in 1128, and 352/914 will adjust to 1028, then 352/914 can be assigned to bridge building and the odds are 40:10 before adjustments. Agreed re surprise.

#3 Our River - yes, will build bridge - assign 28/78 to bridge build, and use arty 766 in fire support and odds are 42:10 before adjustments

#6 1220 - arty 5PZA is supporting this attack, so odds are 22:5 before adjustments

#10 0712 - arty 6PZA is supporting this attack, so odds are 23:5 before adjustments

#12 - I'm attacking Hofen not Monshau, so terrain is rough not town, so odds are 21:5? (before adjustments) I think?
4 6/23/2020 6:32:00 PM Turn 1 American Message I've made a few changes in format when I transcribed your attacks, to make things easier to follow. I've numbered according to die rolls, not according to attacks, so that surprise rolls are included along with combat rolls.

There are a few other things here that you may also want to consider, so I won't call for the rolls until I've confirmed that these are what you want to do.

I'll separately send a vsav where you can check some of these things out. Odds get changed by allied assignment of artillery, so for clarity I've deleted them and the modifiers.

How about making any necessary changes here in ACTS on this list, so I'll have everything in one place and won't have to flip between email and ACTS when I get the rolls.

Hope all of this is clear.

#1: 0533/Echternach, 32:8 shift left = 3:1 (-1 ER)

#2: 1129/Vianden, 43:10 shift left = 3:1 (-1 ER)
But do you not want to try to build a bridge?
Potential surprise shift -- but no surprise, because mech needs ER of 5 or greater for surprise.

#3: Our River before Clervaux - Surprise needs 5 or 6
#4, 40:10 shift left = 3:1 (0 ER)
You haven't used 766A. You could therefore have moved it to 1224
And no bridge build attempt here either?

#5: 1220, surprise needs 5 or 6
#6: 1220 - 15:5 shift left = 2:1 (0 ER) -- possible advance to 1219 (preferred) or 1120
You have 5PzA flipped, but I'm not sure which hex it is targeting.
I will not assign any of my artillery until after I've had your response to these comments,

#7: 1019, surprise needs 4-6
#8: 1019 58:4 shift left = 6:1 (0 ER)
The shift is always taken after all other modifiers, so max against forest or rough is 6:1.

#9: 0714, 20:4 shift left = 4:1 (0 ER)

#10: 0712, 18:5 shift left = 3:1 (0 ER)

#11: 0710, 22:5 shift left = 3:1 (0 ER)
6PzA is flipped, but here again I can't what it is targeting. You did mention this and 5PzA in your email, but I didn't find a revised list that said where they were directed.

#12: Monshau - adjacent with 405A vs 99/395 + 406A shift left, 21:10 = 1:1 (0 ER)
3 6/21/2020 5:16:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Right - I will send a Vassal logfile shortly ...

My combats starting from the South:

#1: 0533/Echternach - 27CF attacking with arty 408 for 32 total vs 8 (4 doubled) in defence. 4:1, 1L all attacks across river for 3:1

#2: 1129/Vianden - 35CF attacking with arty 402 and 7A arty for 43 total vs 10 (5 doubled) in defence. 4:1, 1L all attacks across river = 3:1, +1 for ER. Potential surprise shift.

#3: Our River before Clervaux - 40CF attacking vs 10 (5 doubled) in defence. 4:1, 1L rough for 3:1, IP cancels ER, potential surprise shift

#4: 1220 - 15CF attacking vs 5 for 3:1, IP cancels ER, final odds depend on your arty, and potential surprise shift Will advance to 1219 (preferred) or 1120 (second choice) if I can

#5: 1019 - 53CF attacking with arty 401 for 58 vs 4 for 7:1. 1L rough, IP cancels IR, final odds depend on your arty, potential surprise shift

#6: 0714 - 14CF+arty388 for 20 total vs 4 for 5:1, 1L rough for 4:1, no ER

#7: 0712 - 18CF vs 5 for 3:1, 1L forest for 2:1, IP cancels ER

#8: 0710 - 17CF + arty 402 for 22 total vs 5 defence for 4:1, 1L forest

#9 Monshau - 16CF + arty 405 for 21 total vs 8 defence (4 doubled) for 2:1
