123 2/22/2021 11:29:00 AM Fall 1914 Allies Message sure ill go in for another womping ;)
yea switch sides
122 2/21/2021 6:44:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Do you want to play another? Same sides or switch sides, either way is fine by me.
121 2/21/2021 6:42:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message And if you are AP, you have to decide at what point itís not worth defending Sedan anymore. A lot of AP players wonít dig in at Sedan at all, but I think itís worth trying to hold it if you can do so without losing all of your French units.
120 2/21/2021 6:39:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Yeah, I think if you are CP and AP acts like they are going to hold Sedan at all costs, the response is to hammer Sedan over and over. Itís tough because if you get some bad rolls as CP, you can end up not taking Sedan and being way behind in the RP race. But if you get average rolls you can grind down the French army before any of the AP reinforcements come in. I think CP can win the game in 2-3 turns with this strategy. Itís much harder for CP to win a long a game.
119 2/21/2021 6:33:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message i concede
i experimented with trying to hold sedan at all costs
which failed both in holding it - and well it was all costs - my armies are depleted - no point in going on

i think you were able to hold sedan because i was scattered coing after brussels calais and such
it helped you got landwher i suppose
i clearly shouldve given up on sedan earlier but i wanted to see if i persisted if i could hold it - clearly not
at one point i couldve played moltke but you wouldve just falkenhayn'd
so i think the lesson that applies to my last game here is if you dont take sedan in 1st move you just have to focus on it til it falls - which i didnt do as much in the last game

37 2/17/2021 8:52:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message I didnít mean to suggest you intentionally changed it to game the LFs, I was just explaining why it matters in some cases. I used to roll three dice at the same time for flanks (flank, attack, defense) until someone pointed out that if you know the defense roll, it can impact your loss decision. Nine times out of ten it doesnít matter because thereís only one way to take the loss, or no matter how you take the losses the remaining strength will be the same.

Anyway, reduced French army and BeC left in Sedan? Also, you still have the AH attack in Serbia to resolve and then itís your card.
36 2/17/2021 7:50:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message no youre right
i didnt change it due to the change in combat ratings - i just messed up - but yea i cant be changing it after the roll - revert that

35 2/16/2021 10:09:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message So you really should not change your loss assignment after rolling like that. If you flipped the BeC, you would be returning fire on the 3a column, which is lower odds of hitting a German army. After you rolled, you could tell that it would have been a 3LF result anyway. Since we're just playing for fun it's not a big deal, but just flagging it for the future.
