A&A World Cup 2012 Discussion


  • 2007 AAR League

    Yeah, I’m in if true Commonwealth forces can’t answer the call. I’m allergic to revised, so it would be either Global or AA-50 with a preference for Global.


  • '10

    I registered as team commonwealth since the start, and didn’t have to qualify since none of my possible opponent showed up.

    So i’m in this one for Team commonwealth.

    A while ago, Gargantua also wanted to join, but got no answer.

    So team commonwealth could be, me, Garg and U-505

    Which game did you want to play?


  • '10

    I’m playing only global.


  • TripleA

    I’ll play revised. I miss buying mostly armor with russia until japan shows up.


  • TripleA

    I don’t have battlemaps for revised, would prefer not to type my movements out manually and use tripa instead.



  • yeah, im in, but i dont remember how this is working out, just send me a msg with who im supposed to play, kk?



  • Classic anyone???- retro colors??? JK- actually that’s 41 now



  • So we’re waiting on Team Commonwealth for match-ups at this point?


  • Moderator

    Yeah, I think we are set though.  I think we can take U-505 as a substitute if he is willing to play AA50.

    So Team Commonwealth would be:

    Revised = Cow
    AA50 = U-505
    G40 = Axisplaya

    Team Commonwealth would play Team Europe and the US teams would play each other.

    I’ll give it another day to get the okays, and we should eb underway by the end of the week.  I’ll repost rules too.  But basically the team needs to win 2 of 3.


  • '10

    G40 is 3.9 right?


  • '10

    And, can we Triplea it?

    @DutchmanD:

    G40 is 3.9 right?

    Is that the generally accepted version?  I mean do most people play that.  I have no idea about G40, so whatever is played now.

    @DutchmanD:

    And, can we Triplea it?

    Yeah, if both players want to.  Obviously use the auto posting to the forum for games.  I guess Abattlemap will be the standard, but players can agree to upgrade to TripleA. If there’s a conflict use Battlemap.  That seem fair?


  • '15 Official Q&A '11 '10 Moderator

    Why are the US teams playing each other, and Europe playing commonwealth?

    Is the idea to have a championship between the US and Eur/UK or something?  I thought the playoffs were over and the people representing the USA were set.  But if USA is playing USA, then isn’t that essentially just another qualifying round?

    Confused.

    Exactly.
    Its like the Little League World Series, where it always ends up with US vs. International.


  • 2007 AAR League

    I’ll be a bit intermittent posting for the next couple weeks as I am watching the Olympics online pretty regularly, but I think I can get in a post every other day. If that’s a problem, let me know.

    Yea, it’s G40 3.9, final version. The same one being used in Garg’s tourny.  There are changes to the NOs and the turn order.  Holkann said he can update Battlemap next month, but until then, here is the correct placement for the starting units.

    Big changes, besides the NOs and starting units:

    • aa guns can be taken as casualties and can fire at a max of 3 aircraft.
    • convoys are different, but most people are “house ruling” playing under the original format for convoys because it does not involve rolling dice.
    • Italy goes before the Anzacs in the turn order.

    G40 3.9.AAM

  • '10

    Correcttion on that 3.9 map:  Russian BB in the Baltic is now a cru.

    G40 3.9.AAM


  • Moderator

    Is everyone okay with that version Dutchman posted?
    If you guys need to, go ahead and take the next week to confirm this version.

    I’m going to be gone for about a week, so we should get underway by the 17th-18th.

    Thanks.


  • TripleA

    Ugh, why play anything other than Alpha 3 final? It is what will be put into print on the reprint of global. I am hoping LarryHarris adds a bomber to russia. Allies really get the short end of the stick in my opinion, at least a russian bomber, feels cool.


  • TripleA

    Alpha 2 and OOB really favored the axis heavily. Alpha 1 had some short comings. Alpha 3 is not that different from alpha 2 except naval setup is a bit different and the aa guns nerfed the sea lion threat, sea lion still happens frequently, but the casualties are heavier so the allies can recover from it.


  • TripleA

    I don’t have battlemaps for revised and I can post much quicker using triple a, since I don’t have to read text on one half of my screen and look at the map with the other.

    Easier on the eyes too. If the default is battlemaps so be it, I tend to rush hard anyway for revised, I rarely see round 7 without russia or berlin conquered in revised. Either way it is going to be a fast game.

    I do trust triple a more, since forums can be edited, so there is no doubt when I get diced hard, like egypt drops without getting a single hit back that it just was not my day.

    How do we determine sides for revised? Usually it is bid for axis, 1 unit per territory, place where you got stuff. I don’t know how yall do it around here. Or if you just set it at 9 and roll for sides. Don’t bother me none.


  • TripleA

    Well commonwealth, I am up against func, wish me luck.


  • Moderator

    Team Europe

    Revised = Funcioneta
    AA50 = Yoshi
    G40 = DutchmanD

    Team US 1

    Revised = DarthMaximus
    AA50 = Gamerman
    G40 = Thatonekid

    Team US 2

    Revised = Mojo
    AA50 = Bigbadgoo
    G40 = SAS

    Team Commonwealth

    Revised = Cow
    AA50 = U-505
    G40 = Axisplaya

    –-----------------------

    Matchups

    EU vs. Commonwealth

    US1 vs. US2


    Some of you have started and that is fine.  We will be auction bidding for sides.  The same way we do tourneys or league games.

    If you have started here are the side that can bid first:

    Eu = 1 Com = 2
    US 1 = 1 US 2 = 2

    Rolling 1d2:
    (2)
