    Last call for playoff signups
    Anyone with 4+ games reported in 2016 is eligible for the action
    Send me a PM

    I’m going to leave it open about 1-2 more days, to make sure some of those eligible for top 8 don’t miss their opportunity

    All playoff games will have to wait until then, because if anyone signs up in top 8, it will trickle down to the other playoff(s)

    Top 8 - Look at the signup sheet on the rankings spreadsheet to see your current seeding if you like.  Of course if someone higher than you signs up today or tomorrow, then you will be bumped down

    OK, we had one big late signup so I’m glad I waited, but it’s been quiet so it’s time to kick this off

    The brackets are complete (see the rankings spreadsheet) and games can be started immediately

    We had 10 signups for the 2nd playoff, so there will be 2 play-in games to allow everyone to participate.
    Oysteilo and Majikforce will have to wait for the play-in games to be completed, but everyone else can start playing the 2016 playoff as of now!

    I have nationalities and ages of players who voluntarily disclosed that information last year.  If you would like to share your information, let me know and I will certainly add it.  (Or if you wish it removed)

    Default game is 2nd edition rules, but balanced mod games are allowed and encouraged.  However, if your opponent does absolutely refuse to play balanced mod, you will have to play 2nd edition.  I’m hoping this won’t actually happen to anyone, but everyone absolutely has the right to insist on 2nd edition, so don’t give them any grief.

    Adam514 didn’t nominate? Hmm.

  • '15 '14

    I tried to persuade him to sign in, but I was not able to.


  • Adam is the final boss after you win the championship

  • '15 '14

    Well, at least for the 2015 championship I have to mention that I already had Adam as opponent in the first round of the playoffs. So if you want to summon an endboss for Zhukov or me it has to be someone else:D

    @-Pete:

    Not if he didn’t nominate for play-offs.

    I’d like to propose a rule. When someone asks for casualties without rolling, the defender can roll themselves. Would save some time wastage with new players.

  • 2022 '15 '11 '10 Official Q&A Moderator

    You actually don’t need a rule for that, just go ahead and do it.
    We did have a former league player or two who would go ballistic if you rolled your own dice on their turn, so beware if you do it without saying anything ahead of time to your opponent.  A reasonable person would not object, though.

    That’s why I suggested a rule. It’s their fault for not rolling it though.

    Ruling requested. Variance loaded 2 units onto a transport J11, attacked Kwangsi with one of them and J12 attacked Sumatra with the other. This is illegal right?

    Not a rules expert but I’m pretty sure if you load units during the combat phase and do an amphibious assault you have to unload everything.  No saving it for later!  Someone called me out on that once.

  • 2022 '15 '11 '10 Official Q&A Moderator

    You mean on US11 when he loaded infantry/artillery from the Philippines and dropped only the infantry on Japan’s Kwangsi?  Yes that’s illegal.  It’s legal if the transport was already loaded at the beginning of US11, which it was not.

    Wasn’t easy to find since you said J11 and J12  😛  🙂

    Oops! Sorry about that.

    Dice server seems to be down

  • '19 '17 '16

    Working now. I’ve had an intermittent problem with the dice server though.

    Release 1.9.00.3736 changes the default post mode to showing dice/battle details in case anyone is interested. Surprisingly I was able to get that change incorporated.

    This also has the change that air raids then bombing raids become automatically selected. This was mostly for online games to prevent a pass of control between defender scramble/kamikaze decisions and defender intercept decisions. Also forces them to be made at the correct point in the sequence.

    The bug about rockets showing their damage before the selection of the next rocket’s target is fixed but not the one about a rocket disabling a scrambling airbase. The blitzing bug has been removed from the notes. It’s not a problem! You can’t blitz through a territory with something targetable by a rocket/SBR in Global.

    Tried to incorporate some auto kills but couldn’t get it accepted. Defenseless transports and defenseless amphibious assaults with no sea battle FWIW.

    It’s possible to change the maps to combine the USA/China/UK post and the ANZAC/France post.

    Will anyone have any issues with doing that? I guess if you’re playing more than 2 player (including play by email) it won’t work so well. Doubt that anyone playing this way plays by forum/email although I guess it is possible.

  • '20 '16

    We can’t download the game file I posted to the forum. I’ve tried it a few different ways but always get the same message about error while parsing. I piggy back posted in the software thread, but thought I’d try here too.

    Has the forum run out of disk space for attachments again?

  • '15 '14

    If the forum is out of space one cannot attach files anymore. However, the current problem occurred before already, too. I assume someone informed Djensen?

    Question about BM.  Its turn 2 and ANZAC in not at war in the pacific yet.  Vichy rules are in effect. Can ANZAC take FIC and what are the political ramifications of that? Thanks.

    Yes they can and no political ramifications.

  • '19 '17 '16

    Hmm. If it was a friendly neutral you wouldn’t be able to because you aren’t at war on the pacific map.

    Not long ago I undid a move to do this because I thought it was illegal.

  • 2022 '15 '11 '10 Official Q&A Moderator

    There’s no such thing as being at war on only one map for UK/ANZAC

    UK/ANZAC begins the game at war with Germany and Italy, so can take pro-Axis neutral territories anywhere in the world

    There’s no difference between UK/India taking FIC, or ANZAC taking FIC
