T4 J Off6, F.O. card

I will do an F.O. as well. I am not going to play it in VASSAL because I believe you may be able to see it, since the game is a Referee game.

I did not look at VASSAL the last time you played a F.O., obviously ;-)

I have not looked this time, so it you want to undo it or just do your next log w/o it, that would be great. I refuse to look...

XSo anyway, their is no need for me to do a log. over to you for your Off6

226 3/4/2021 11:39:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message The reaction player does post-btl movement first...

I will flip your CV Lex and Wasp. My only post-btl move is (BB Ymato) back to Truk

You can do your post-btl moves then do those two items for me and go stgraight into your next offensive
225 3/3/2021 5:45:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message I sent you a log with my reaction move. You can apply your 27 hits and do your post-battle moves. Then I can do my post-battle moves, and my next offensive. How's that?
224 3/3/2021 4:31:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message So let's see how "Midway South" (probably far worse than the B. of Coral Sea) goes for the Japanese.

I am tredipedous about the results,,,
223 3/3/2021 4:26:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message I agree it is best for the defensive player to react then roll the battles then do his post-btl moves all in one log. Then the offensive player does post-btl moves, probably as another log.

I don't know if you play PoG or BtB, but that is pretty much how combat is handled in ACTS in those games.
222 3/3/2021 4:03:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message It seemed like less back and forth if I rolled the result and applied my hits; then over to you apply your hits and do your post battle movement; then back to me to do my post battle movement and next offensive. And we can do all this in one log file.
221 3/3/2021 3:18:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Worse than I thought!
220 3/3/2021 2:59:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message It's worse than that: "The last ground step in a hex cannot be eliminated due to air and naval hits", so, I would be reduced to the PM unit.
219 3/3/2021 2:53:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message You have responded to my annoying card with a very annoying card of your own!

You can roll the combats or I can -- this is ;ooking like Midway for the Japanese...

In most cases, the defending player can just go ahead and roll and apply the results, then it goes back to the offensive player to do post-btl moves. Why don't we stick with that?

Also, note tha on the air-sea vs. grnd units, this only happens if there are no opposing air-sea units and can only reduce, not elim the grnd units. For instance is our current battle, if you had not reacted and I had rolled a x1 multiplier, I could have flipped 3AUS and 3NZ, but nothing more...

You click on "Transportation Route Display Options" in the Toolbar (it's the brown hexagon with the transportation routes), and toggle the display option for a route. It's nifty. I turned on the Jarhat route.

146 2/20/2021 8:37:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message I had forgotten about strategic air movement. I'll remove the Alaska Occupied markers.
145 2/20/2021 8:17:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message I will still abandon Alaska -- you can easily take it back with a 1 or 2 ops card that will leave me no reaction...

On the air units, they are using strat.air movement which doubles their hops to six. I guess I miscounted on a couple of them but they should still should be able to get where they want to go.
144 2/20/2021 7:37:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message If you abandon Amchitka within 3 turns, you can't claim Alaska Occupation. Since you took it on Turn 2, you'd have to have a unit there through the end of Turn 5.

"16.42 Occupation of Alaska
Alaska is considered occupied if a Japanese unit has continuously occupied any single hex in Aleutian Islands (Hexes 4600Ė5100) at the end of any third consecutive US Political Will Segment"
143 2/20/2021 7:27:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Also, the maximum length of a jump is the air unit's extended range. But 2 AD (extended range 4) made several 5-hex jumps:

142 2/20/2021 7:14:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message I have a question about your move. The 25 AF made 4 jumps from Kure to Sarong, but isn't the OC value of the card the maximum number of jumps (in this case 3)?

I did notice that a red square appears in the hex when I hit the Show/Hide Gane Counters button, don't know if that is because you played the card as an event or what. That doesn't help if you choose to build one of the hexes by playing an ops cards...
