Message from Allied:
Bridge 2008 Demo
496 1/21/2021 11:02:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message Bridge 2008
495 1/21/2021 9:15:00 PM Turn 1 German Message I uploaded a final file with the final positions after correcting J.
494 1/21/2021 9:14:00 PM Turn 1 German Message I checked combat J. You are correct, it was a 3-1. Result would be engaged. the 12/Fus took part in J but I had advanced him with the I stack. He is back where he should be. All should be good now.
493 1/21/2021 12:42:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message No problem
492 1/21/2021 10:53:00 AM Turn 1 German Message Ok, sounds good. I try to keep an eye on that all the time. It's a bit stricter than 4 formations. Because you can 2 main formations and then add 2 more units attached to these formations but they have to be stacked together. That is why I couldn't get stronger attacks at Ouren Bridge or close to the Schnee Eifeel.
491 1/21/2021 10:47:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message Your right about the arty, it's hard to follow these files, you unflipped some after the arty phase and I lost track.

Battle J i'm positive about, you can't use the Sturmpanzer because that's too many formations, 12th, 1SS, 12 SS, 277th and Sturm. You can't have more than 4, and you end up at 5 with the sturm
490 1/21/2021 10:17:00 AM Turn 1 German Message With attack J. I can't look at the stacks to confirm. I could have miscalculated that thinking there was a track there. If you feel confident the odds should have been 2-1 instead of 3-1. You can change the result to ENG and return my dead recon guy to the map.
489 1/21/2021 10:10:00 AM Turn 1 German Message I'm pretty sure I only flipped 6 artyillery units but I can't access vassal to fully check.
I used arty in combat A. This guy didn't flip, he just didnt fire on turn 1.

I used arty in the ouren bridge attack, Burg Rouland bridge and StV bridge. 3 flips there.

I used 2 artys near Loshaim and 1 arty by Monchau. 3 more flips.

Where is the 7th?I know you sent me a list of names but I can't really see the arty units on what I have here (just an image of the last file).
488 1/21/2021 9:55:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message Couple other questions:

I counted 7 artillery flips this turn, the 17th VW, 402VA, 388VA, 16VW, 7VW, 15VW, 756VA...which would turn D back to 2-1 and a A1/Eng

Battle J, it's actually 3-1, since the Recon units can't enter forest hexes, that should be an engaged result. They also can't lead firefights.

487 1/21/2021 12:19:00 AM Turn 1 German Message I meant you CAN'T blow bridges this turn. So I can get the tank shifts.
486 1/21/2021 12:18:00 AM Turn 1 German Message E is 5:1 initially because I have 13v4 + tank (you can blow the bridge and you are not in forrest) + arty. Down to 4:1 with your arty.

D is a 3:1. All my units are halved. 2 (inf) +1(PzJ) +3 (Pz) for 6 vs 3. +arty = 3:1

F is a 3:1. Im halved so Im a 5 vs your 4. 1:1 initial + tank shift + arty for final 3:1

480 1/20/2021 11:34:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message How are you getting 5-1 there, I see 13-4 with 1 arty, thats 4-1, 3-1 after my arty support
479 1/20/2021 11:31:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message No DD, arty supports the 5-1

D/E/F are pending because you have an arty unit there. Which combat do you want to support?
Btw, this is definitely harder now.

Disengage 1810
458 1/19/2021 10:32:00 PM Turn 1 German Message I made a small change to 1 advance South. Added a revised file for it.
457 1/19/2021 10:16:00 PM Turn 1 German Message move done. I think on our last game you used SM for one of the artillery units. No SM is allowed for either side on T1.
456 1/19/2021 10:11:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message Yes, the center portion makes a big difference especially now with Hosingen holding out that holds back Lehr considerably
455 1/19/2021 10:06:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message No DDs
454 1/19/2021 10:04:00 PM Turn 1 German Message 116th Pz recon can't advance to 1919. I'll fix that advance when you I do the other advances. (no road and dragon teeth in that hex)
453 1/19/2021 9:57:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Yes, it makes it to where you can't use all of 2Pz and 116thPz. From Clervaux-South, it's all the same. From the north of the Schnee Eiffel to Monchau its also all the same. It's that center portion from Ouren bridge to the St.V bridge that really gets affected.
452 1/19/2021 9:22:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message wow - That seemed to have made a big difference
451 1/19/2021 8:17:00 PM Turn 1 German Message You have 4 potential DDs.

435 1/19/2021 12:44:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message Sure, would you be interested in posting our game in one of the AAR threads? I can handle the write ups/posts.

I hope you don't mind that I posted over there. I don't try to be controversial but it seems I have a knack for ticking off some gaming people, or so it seems. At least it got someone interested in looking at the files, so mission successful.

Yes, let's restart again, let's see how it effects things.

I like the game too, I am not trying to dis the design or anything, just wanting to understand the best strategy to employ
434 1/19/2021 12:19:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Would you be interested on a re-start? I like the game and would like to try it out correcting the boundary mistake.
433 1/19/2021 11:55:00 AM Turn 1 German Message A guy on consim finally found what the mistake is. I'm not following the divisional boundary rule on turn1. In my head I thought it was the same as the army boundary rule. That would change the odds on some opening attacks. I'm not sure by how much but it's probably worth 1 left shift on some battles.
432 1/19/2021 9:58:00 AM Turn 1 German Message I was just trying to remind myself that I drove through it so it has to come off. But I forgot to remove the roadblock.

Also, I made an illegal advance in the attack near Ouren Bridge. I had an infantry unit move to the forrest hex next to troisverges. They can't get there because there is no road into that hex. So if you could revise my advance there to have the infantry in the rough move to 2317 (clear hex), the other infantry can move to 2318 (forrest with road). 116thPz mech infantry is fine in Weiswampach.
431 1/19/2021 9:12:00 AM Turn 1 Allied Message Hey Gerardo, what does the right arrow marker you placed on the roadblock indicate?
430 1/18/2021 10:21:00 PM Turn 1 German Message Move done.

411 1/16/2021 11:35:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message I must be playing this wrong. I think ive figured out the Southern shoulder, its the center and northern shoulder which are tougher. St Vith is a death trap, I thought i was missing something there so i tried a heavier defense but that is just asking to get trapped, I dont even think there is any strategic value to holding it. In the first game I threw a full CC plus a regiment un front of piper and that slowed him down but cost me the units. Now ive saved some casualties but you are already at Malmedy.

The center is a little better , but the road thru houffaluze and to the meuse is wide open.

Its just going to be the same situation as before where I am throwing units in SM formation infront of panzers hoping to act like a speed bump, but never actually halting the advance.

Is there anything I am missing here? Have you ever lost as the Germans?
410 1/16/2021 11:25:00 PM Turn 1 German Message It's the most success I've seen from the Germans. We can play something else if you prefer.
409 1/16/2021 11:12:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message Feels like its over already, i dont get what the designer was thinking
408 1/16/2021 11:05:00 PM Turn 1 German Message That was a good turn for me. But yes, I would not want to be the Americans right now. The whole front collapsed from Clervaux North.
