  • Hi,

    You assign “1fgt HUN” to 2 different combats : z112 and YUG.
    Please could you state where this ftr’s going before throwing any dice?

    z111 : Yes the Ftr scramble… I have a chance to save the Hood.
    z110 : No, all Ftr stay put… Luftwaffe is too strong to launch Spitfires, impossible to save the Prince of Wales.

    Looking forward to see France’s battle, ATT : 30/15, DEF: 28/12…

  • 2019 2018 2017 2016

    Oops… sorry about that. No ftr HUN to YUG… I changed my mind last minute.

    Not sure how it will work out, but I’m feeling a little crazy about it all!  :mrgreen:

    Hope to get time to roll out the battles tonight.

    Well… that’s the worst defeat in history. had a 90% chance of winning the fight and have lost it. Probably will be a very short game, but let’s continue…

    Retreat 1 tnk, ftr, tac.

    losses in france of 5 inf… amazingly bad rolls on my side.

    wow… the france battles only missed 7 times… that’s crazy odds.

    Oh well. I feel it is time to concede already. So, I will.

    It was short and sweet. Good luck in the next rounds, I do not feel there is anyway to recover from such a bad beat and do not think Italy can even take FRA this round… pretty slim chance.

    It was fun while it lasted.

    Good luck!.. although it seems you already have it!  🙂

  • If you have a second thought and wish to continu it’s fine with me, I can suffer a turn over round too…

    Yes I had good luck to hit 7 times with 28CV… but you had even worst luck by hitting just 3 times with 30. Now both together, I agree it’s terrible… fall in that 10% I guess.

    Just to double check, in z111, you had 2 subs right? Seems you rolled 3 of them.

    Anyhow, I’ll wait before writing to Jenn, just in case you wish to see a full turn before conceding.

  • 2019 2018 2017 2016

    I used the extra sub in 111 (I wrote +1ss z124)… that might have been a little confusing.  If so, happy to re-roll the ENTIRE round for you!  😄

    I have yet to see an Axis win from a bad first round against France against a competent Allies player… and you are certainly competent. So, playing on to me is downright boring to know where it will eventually end (unless some ridiculous good luck rolls happen) and frankly, don’t like to count on that to win a game.

    Knew the opening moves were a bit risky (10-20% chance of failure overall), but I feel that in G40A2, the axis has to be extremely aggressive in the first 3 rounds and take risks. If not, Allies will grind you down. After the first 3 rounds and the IPC totals are equal or slightly in favor of the Axis, then can play a more conservative game that uses economics more than risky aggression.

    Win some, and lose some. Feel free to email Jennifer. At this point, too many options for the US to win the game. Can go all Japan (and we know how that works out) or can go all Europe (we also know how that works out…). Just don’t see how Germany recovers, especially with a French 1 build!

    Good luck and if you want to play another game to keep you interested until rd 3 of the tourney, happy to play. If you want to play the Axis, I’m fine with that too as I need more practice with the Allies (and more luck with the Axis!!!)  😛

  • @kilroynothere:

    I used the extra sub in 111 (I wrote +1ss z124)… that might have been a little confusing.

    Nah… I overlooked it. I went back to your orders’ post and I see it clearly. Sorry about that, my bad.

    Well, it’s a tourney… normally I would just say go ahead and reroll Paris.
    But even if luck was way off, it was a close battle and odds to loose it (but with only 1-2 units left) was present.

    It’s a shame, I was so thrill to play Allies at last… Anyway, sure I’m opt for an Alpha2 game for fun. I’ll play either side, I let you pick.

    Sorry to see France hammer you so badly, but it’s not unrecoverable.

    I’ll record the game as is.  Send me an email if you two want to rewind and try the battle for Paris again, or if you want to try and make a go of things.  (You never know!  Japan could attack everything in sight and not sustain a single loss!)

  • Man up…keep playing.

  • I dunno… France probably gets to build units, and that’s just rough.  You get a hail mary w/ Italy but they’re going to be at a disadvantage.  If France builds units there’s juts no way.

    Yes, but Italy should be able to take France which might, at least has in my games before, make Italy nigh unstopable!

  • How so?  7 units remain, to be reinforced by 3 UK ftr (it’s what I’d do).  Both the unit count and punch favor the Allied cause.

  • Not to mention 0 ground units were built and soooooo many were lost.  Can’t rightly prepare to sealion Britain if you’ve got no ground forces left, a move made clear by his opening purchase.  I couldn’t imagine the Russian purchase not being extremely aggressive, I don’t see any way the Axis could compensate.
