13L G40.2 Gamerman01 (Allies +9) vs. Jeff28 (Axis)

    Allweneedislove has a policy that he uses that if he chooses casualties for his opponent to speed up the game and his opponent doesn’t like the casualty choice, the opponent has the right to demand a re-do and re-roll.  I’m not saying that’s what we should do - my point is that players do NOT choose casualties for their opponents.  If they DO, they give them an advantage (demanding a re-roll or whatever).

    Just ask a few other players if you don’t believe me.  I could make a poll and I bet you anything the vast majority of players would agree that they would NOT be happy if this was done to them.  So not cool.

    gamer, i’m sure you remember the EM debacle even better than me, and it is seared in my memory.  :lol:

    Again, as I said before, you should actually be HAPPY that I’m taking off the mech first, because either your Italians can finish the job with less Allied defense, and/or the Germans can.

    I’m actually weakening my position.

    The fact that you’re resisting tells me that you really wanted to take out my heavy bomber and then retreat.  Well, I wouldn’t have taken the heavy bomber off first, and I’m tired of you calling me a liar by saying “well hindsight’s 20/20”.

    Take off the mech, and either continue the attack with the Italians by using the forum dice roller (as I said before, I can help) or do G10 and kill them with the Germans.  You have air in range and everything.

    The fact that I am having to say all these things over and over again tells me you’re maybe not even reading or comprehending what I’m saying??

    so i do not think it is valid to say that when you have given your opponent max defense in a battle where they are rolling to completion because they are 100.1% to win with a huge number of units remaining, that they have the right to send you back to round 1 to reroll.  only a true idiot would do that.  and as i recall, he then chose the very same casualties in the first round that i gave him, and would have ever round thereafter had we continued to play on.   :roll:

    OK, but back to the issue at hand that seems to be holding up this game.

    Jeff, all you’ve done is not believe me when I say I wanted to lose mech first, even if I didn’t know my defense roll (given that you only scored 1 hit)

    Now are you going to accept my solution that you remove the mech and restore the heavy bomber and play the Italian attack from there (or retreat), or what do you propose?

    You can’t tell me what casualty choice to take off.  If I wanted to take the FIGHTER off first, that’s my prerogative.  If you haven’t figured it out by now, I demand the right to choose my own casualties, as stipulated by the rules of A&A.


  • I am reading and comprehending it.

    I had pure motives at the time. I don’t think I did anything wrong. I was a giant favorite to kill both air units in like the first round. I got diced.

    As I said it seems unfair to use hindsight now. I can see your point but I made all my decisions using common sense.

    I think we should re-roll it here from your decision point, to be sure you’d really lose the mech instead of the bomber.

    I wouldn’t have personally without knowledge of the defense roll, knowing a second round of attack is coming. But you say you would have.


  • Sorry if I hurt your feelings with my feedback about your ranking system.

    I wasn’t trying to fingerpaint on your Picasso.

    It’s better and more work than anything I’d do.

    No, like I said, I appreciate the input

    Thanks for being careful - I appreciate that

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

    Yes, you can re-roll it from the point of casualty choice.  So you scored 1 hit, and I lose the mech.

    Here’s the new defense rollRolls: 1@1 1@2 1@4; Total Hits: 21@1: (3)1@2: (1)1@4: (2)

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

    If you go by “expected hits” you will be disappointed while playing A&A…… FREQUENTLY

    Now, do you press with the Italians or retreat?

    5e - If a turn is not posted within 9 days of either the previous turn post or the end of a predetermined “vacation”, then the player failing to post may be declared in default and lose the game

    Pursuant to league rule 5e, I will be declaring you in default on March 21 after 8:10 PM Central if you don’t post the German turn.  The matter with the heavy bomber was resolved when I re-rolled it as we agreed.  The roll was done at 8:09 PM Central on March 12.  I am giving you this warning as a courtesy.

    You have defaulted the game by not posting for 9 days.
