Bison36 -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/11/2012 2:53:28 AM)

I'd sign up, but unfortunately it coincides with a planned vacation.

Good luck gents.




Missouri_Rebel -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/11/2012 8:45:09 PM)

I'm in. Need to brush up on some tactics for The Gap. Lost the last few playing that one.

balto -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/12/2012 4:46:36 AM)

What side were you playing when you lost?

I have yet to find a human opponent. It is my fault because I do not have a consistent schedule for when I am available, but maybe some day.




Missouri_Rebel -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/12/2012 4:54:24 AM)

The Germans. 1 loss because of bad dice rolls imo and the others to superior tactics. I did win that scenario twice as the Germans although in 1 game it came down to my last AP and CAP to secure the victory hex. It all depends how the LMG's fare.




Missouri_Rebel -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/13/2012 4:11:24 AM)

Glad the practice games I just played with Jamm weren't the tourney or it would be lights out for me already. I was thoroughly trashed.




Jamm -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/13/2012 2:26:39 PM)

I wouldn't say trashed. Both games were well played and you learn so much more playing another person.

The wargaming gods ( die rolls ) and a few timely cards helped my cause.

If we make it past the first round we'll have to practice again, unless of course we play each other,..




Missouri_Rebel -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/26/2012 4:02:12 AM)

Well, things didn't go so good for me in the tourney and I was out-played in both games. Good job Eric Rutins and Hugi and good luck in the next round.

Erik Rutins -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/26/2012 2:23:45 PM)

Missouri,

You are a very good player and you beat me the last time we played. You definitely could have gone all the way. The dice and cards were kind to me this time.

Regards,

- Erik




junk2drive -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/26/2012 2:44:13 PM)

I didn't like the random cards thing. Both games my opponents got better cards than I did. Both games were closer than the score indicates. Both players got crappy dice rolls all the time [:D]




Joram -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/27/2012 12:06:58 AM)

I'm really enjoying the tournament so far.  My first match as the Russians I won but I felt entirely outplayed the first turns.  With judicious use of cards and a little bit of luck was able to turn it around.  In the second game when I was axis, my opponent insta-killed two of my units with his first two shots!  Thankfully, I think half of his units were questionably placed and he failed to appreciate the power of group fire with 4 LMGs so I was able to knock out half his units in the first two rounds which put him on his back foot with which he never was truly able to recover from.  Both games were very different than any game I had ever played against the AI so it was fun!




junk2drive -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/27/2012 2:11:56 AM)

How did you group fire with 4 LMGs?

IIRC :... only the units left and right of the 'fire leader' of a group adding +1 bonus ...and all three have to have LOS
so i thought that 3 units is the max, even so there may be more in the group

(...but if contiguous means that all the units that are direct-connected to the fire leaders hex ... a group of 7, providing a +6 Bonus in an open field environment (LOS) could be possible? ... will test that.

btw: i am having a blast participating in the International (one honorable opponent +6h ours, the other -6hours, so far) Tournament.[:)]
against a human its so much different then against the AI [8D]




Erik Rutins -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/27/2012 1:58:59 PM)

I wonder if a "tournament" mode would make sense for the future, where each side gets the same set of pre-determined cards through the scenarios. I think once you get to that point though, you also need to remove the variable quality and use scenarios that are internally mirrored as far as forces and terrain. It would minimize luck, but might be a bit less interesting. I think the solution Curtis came up with of playing it once from each side is a reasonable one overall given that there are a lot of variables at work.

Regards,

- Erik




hugi -> RE: The Wargamer's Tournament - we're playing Conflict of Heroes!!! (6/27/2012 5:41:01 PM)

I think the luck system of the game is ok for a tournament.
Only the random quality rule is sometimes irritating. I think we should play without.

I would like to play in a league.
Every Scenario with flipping sides.
But then, we must have more than one scenario.

I think tournament or leagues can help to create a solid community.
At the moment it is difficult the get a quick game, because the lobby is often empty.

Greetings
hugi

You're right Mike. You have to think in more than one dimension. Without stacking, you could feasibly group 7 units (one in the middle, six adjacent). With stacking of course it could be much higher. The trick of course is to make sure you select the middle unit as the firing leader.

Edited because I can't count how many sides a hex has. :)
