Cap Mandrake -> RE: The IKEA effect (2/12/2013 4:54:12 PM)

The annoyance that is Beazelbob. Last night, JJ sent in Kuroshio in a solo raid to go after our shipping transiting between Sulawese and the Moluccas. She was spotted inbound so I sent MacDonough to intercept. This worked so no real damage was done. When the sun came up the TBF's (with no torps) failed to hit the retreating DD. Eventhough no real damage was done, it still disrupts our transport traffic. Broody annoying, rearry.

This is consequence of rittle squid tentacurs attacking Phirrapines. Annoying rittle Japanese Ahabs stabbing great beast with rittle harpoons.

Hey...are we ever going to catch up on points? When do the Arries usuarry surpass the LYB's in Scenario 2?

And what gives with this LYB "minor victory" business?

Expect more of it. Consider it kismet / karma for your PT boat TFs soaking off Nettie strikes for the last 6 months.

So sorry, Yankee dogs! Rooks rike you catch up in 9,124 points! Ah-rit-ma-tek! HAI!

Arso, arr games different. JFB thinks you doing werr, in spite of being round-eye gaijin.

Minor victory for Japanese until you surpass 1.25:1 Japanese: Arried ratio. Currently, you have a 1.32:1 Japanese to Arried ratio. So crose! So fah! Ha! BANZAI!

This is a consequence of bypassing bases and leaving other IJA units to wander the wilderness praying for manna. You have not gained the usual base and destroyed unit points. That can come later, once you get your tentacles on the tanker traffic in the South China Sea.

Yes...it rearry is stupid idea....even though there are no fighters at Beazelbob. The worst part is not knowing where the LYB carriers are.

Double post




Cap Mandrake -> RE: The IKEA effect (2/12/2013 7:36:46 PM)

I predict JJ will pay attention. [:)] Looks like we will need more naval support to get all the goodies ashore.

leehunt27@bloomberg.net -> RE: The IKEA effect (2/13/2013 7:42:45 PM)

very interesting AAR. quite a run up the middle to PI, ugh. this is making me re-think some of my defense in my own game as a Japanese player. Quite a big CV victory at Suva (around page 100, i've got some catching up to do)

Fenton!! JC...

I would be in heaven with all of those deer to shoot...[&o]

However, as we're only allowed to hunt with sticks and stones now a days.. I would only be able to get one me thinks...[8|]




Cap Mandrake -> RE: The IKEA effect (2/13/2013 11:56:03 PM)

Turns out ALSP already had a Para brigade prepping for Prome to seize a crossing over the Irrawaddy.

I told you we were both geniuses.

In other news Vicky has apparently arrived and there is no mention of any ankle sag.




Cap Mandrake -> RE: The IKEA effect (2/14/2013 12:09:47 AM)

Admiral Lord SPrior;

Just noticed something. If you try to land the Pioneers or 6th or 9th Aus or 18th Div before Ramree is captured they will suffer 50% disruption. That would be bad.

Quite possibly you thought of this already.[:)]

Quite possibly. Luckily the Indians seem more organised.

They belong to the Queen. Shoot them and she'll track you down and give you a proper shoe-ing.

Quite true. In a way you could say Fiji was their high water mark, but Port Hedrand was an epic clash of man and machine. There was an entire month where it looked like our lads at Port Hedrand would throw in the towel. IJN naval losses were crippling.

Cap Mandrake -> RE: The IKEA effect (2/14/2013 7:11:01 PM)

Stalker Girl and Pocahantas Girl have become drinking buds. Most likely they have a bottle of wine and begin to complain about the men in their lives. [:)]

SG was descending the stairs somewhat slowly this AM..


FAM: Bottle fatigue?

SG: Huh? No...I'm fine.

FAM: <not saying anything..trying to suppress smirk...holding fire because of St Valentine>

I dunno. I'd consider that a legitimate complaint for the Cap'n.

Nice try at a diversion.




Cap Mandrake -> RE: The IKEA effect (2/14/2013 7:58:55 PM)

*************Pranning***************


San Jose: Runway nearly patched up. P-39's/RCAF Hurris and a few P-40K's in pretty good shape. USS Denver is slowly flooding...now up to 89%. I am going to trying to get a new Sea Bee Bn up there via LCT because the lads ashore are all disrupted.

Leyte: JJ is operating out of a level 2 field on Leyte with about 30 fighters and some dive bombers. I am sending Juneau in tonight. we shall see what a "machine gun" crusier does to an airfield.

Jolo: There is an apparent LYB cruiser-led force headed NE about 300 nm SSE of Jolo. Likely it will be a raid on the shipping there. There are still a few AK's and AP's trying to unload equipment amphibiously. They will head East tonight. A USN crusier force with two CL's under Willis Lee is on guard. Might be a good fight. They won't find anything but combatants and the base now has CD guns too. If they bring a CA it could be trouble. North Carolina and South Dakota are motoring up from Ternate tonight but probably wont arrive in time. SBD's at Jolo may be trouble for any IJN cripples.

Cagayan: Almost to level 5 field. USS Oakland is standing guard. I have another Air HQ that has attached Heavy Bomber groups headed up toward Cagayan...should arrive in 3-4 days.

Davao: Probably a few more air attacks before another ground attack.

Manado: Still in LYB hands.


Recon over Munda (Solomons) shows 16k troops. Thats nearly 100,000 troops between Munda, Lunga and Tulagi. Probably more on Bouganville. Recon over Vella Lavella today. Maybe they will move some there too. [:)]

I've been immersed in this game too long; I find myself wondering if she can really "see" out to 25 hex range and fly out to bite you if she spots you.
