 rolleyes I have nothing left to prove to myself or others on this site.
I am too busy to play you right now because I'm playing in the final 4 of a tournament of 32 players, and also in the finals for the 2011 league championship, as the #1 seed.
I'm also playing against 2 A&A friends in 2012 league play, and a local friend of mine, making 5 games total.
I'm here to play for fun, not to prove to every blowhard who comes along that I can beat him.  I also don't like to play hours and hours and hours of a game with someone who I don't even like.

I don't know how skilled you are because I haven't seen you play a game and I don't know who you've played or how you've done.  And I don't really care.  Everybody knows you get attention by saying outlandish things - in this case, calling me a coward.  There's only one player I wouldn't want to play because of his skill level, and it's not you.

There are players you wouldn't want to play, because of their skill level?  Wow.  Alright. Tongue

Yea, drop me a line when you have time for a game, we can make it a league game - 2012, so that when either of us wins it, it matters.

TripleA is a much more convenient method of play, specifically for me.  I know you like your game reports to show every move, Battlemap takes too much time to type all that up. In my opinion - It would be a faster, more enjoyable game if you tried it.

But we can talk about all that when the time comes...

Best of luck in the tourney!

Yes.  I much prefer playing players at or somewhat below my skill level.  I don't like playing way below my skill level (no challenge, waste of time), and I don't like playing above my skill level (war is more fun when you're winning).  Got a problem with that?

Last night I scanned over your G1 against TDJ.  It was extremely fortunate.  As I said before, it doesn't prove anything to play anyone other than TDJ after G1, because you made your G1 moves knowing it was TDJ.  You have to prove you would try it against me.  If you get really lucky again, then so be it, I'll just have to deal with it.

No, sorry, I don't play Triple A and I'm not going to put the time into figuring out which version to download and getting it working and learning all of its idiosyncracies just to play one game with you.  So it will have to be ABattlemap.

Yes, I'm swamped right now (6 games) and it seems like half a year since I just voluntarily started a new game (most are tournaments, championships, and rematches).  But I think I can start this new one with you within a month or less.  Always interesting to play someone new, and interesting to play a themed game.

Again, just to be clear, you're going to give me a standard bid (say 10 or 11) and I will put it in a standard place but not Karelia or Egypt.  (Say a destroyer to 12, and 2 IPC's to Russia or an infantry somewhere else, like India or something)  Then we'll play however we want, but you will attack Karelia and Egypt on G1.  I also want it to be a league game 2012 so that it counts, and I'm glad you do too.

And for the record, I only said I have never seen anyone attack Egypt and Karelia on G1 at the same time, implying that it was too risky, or reckless, or a bad strategy, or whatever.  And you came along and said that you had just recently done just that against TDJ (which you had) and succeeded.  And I said basically, that's nice, but you did it knowing you had inferior competition.  Then you said if that's the case, then take me on after G1 with that save file.  I said that's ridiculous, because you made those moves knowing it was TDJ and not Gamerman01 across the table from you.  You called me a coward.  So then it's game on.   cheesy

This will be fun.  Heck go ahead and start it, just know that I might not be able to move frequently for a few weeks as I wrap up other games I'm tied up with.

Sorry you don't like ABattlemap typing.  It's not a problem for me because I type really fast.   smiley

An unasked for observation I know, but Triple A is easier than battlemap.  Sure you gotta download the program and then get the corresponding map, but it's all setup for you.  Finding opponents is really easy and you can get a game done in about 4 hours.  You really should try it Gamerman.

As this topic has fallen asleep, I want to discuss the allied bidding strategies in aa50-41, no tech, low-luck, bid: 13 IPC

I - Russian fighter

a) fighter on the western front, maybe on Caucasus to eventually kill the German transport in the med or to Karelia to make a German assault to expensive (high losing risk and forgoing too many other targets) and eventually killing the lone German transport (if the cruiser attacked the UK destroyer)

The 3 IPC left can be used for any allied country, e.g. an infantry in Egypt

b) fighter on the eastern front to Buryatia to kill the transport in SZ 62

b1) With 3 IPC go to the US and buy an infantry on the Philippines, land the fighter there. 3 Inf + 1 Fighter is hard for Japan lacking one transport and having no shore bombardment
b2) With the 3 IPC go to UK, e.g. Egypt, land in Yakut und go to the western front against Germany
b3) With an infantry bid in Burma or India: land in Yunnan. Yes, this is a sacrifice, but 3 Inf + 2 Fighters just allow the Japanese to clear the country, but probably not conquer it. This will slow the Japanese very much in moving against India.

II Anti-Manchuria

Bid: 1 Inf to Buryatia and 1 tank to Soviet far east and one to Stanovoj C.

attack Manchuria with 4 Inf + 2 Tanks - 2,5 units left is the expected result in low luck, means 2 tanks or 2 tank + 1 inf
a hard punch against Japan but no bid for Africa/Europe

III-UK fleet

IIIa destroyer in SZ2

While SZ 2 is still attractive, only 2 subs + fighter + bomber is a safe deal.
Which means Germany has to sacrifice one fighter in SZ 12 for at least one battle round to secure the Italian fleet.

IIIb destroyer in SZ12

in SZ 12 the italien fleet is endangered severely so Germany must attack here.
both attacks, SZ 2 with 1 sub+fighter+bomber and at the same time SZ12 with sub+2 fighter make both somewhat risky, probably losing a fighter for Germany too.

the 5 IPC remaining will probably be a UK tank in Egypt or a Russian tank on the front against Germany

IIIc a sub in SZ12 and a sub in SZ 35

the one in SZ 12 is to threaten Italy, while the one in SZ 35 wants to harrass Japanese ships or lone transports

Buying both at the same time is one option, the other is buy only of of those subs and some ground units

IV - pro Russia

buy any units for Russia for 13 IPC placing them on the front with Germany

V pro UK

buy any units for 13 IPC for UK, maybe to strengthen either India oder Egypt/Africa

Have I missed some good allied bids ?
