Too many good AARs are buried in this forum - lets collect their links here! It would be great if someone (maybe the AAR writer's themselves, if they are still around) could also add some info about those games - see below. Additionaly, I suggest that all AAR writers add their threads to the 'Ongoing AARs' section. This would allow readers to easily find AARs that are similar to their own games, and browse them for advice. Write an interesting summary, and you might gain more readers, too! I also plan to add a third chapter about AAR writing, with useful links and tips. Right now it's just a draft, everyone is welcome to contribute here, too.

If possible, I'd like to use the following template for adding an AAR:

AAR Title
Players: Player 1 [Jap.] vs. Player 2 [Allies]/ Team Game / Player 1 vs. Jap. AI / ...
Perspective: Allied / Japanese / Combined AAR, open/closed AAR
Map, Mod, Scen: Stock Map, Scen 15/ CHS 2.08 Scen 157/ RHSCVO 7.76 /...
Settings: PDU on/off, 1/2/3 day turns, historical start, ... Just the most important settings.
House Rules: Optional. Important/unusual house rules.
Current game date: I'll try to update this every now and then.
Comments: Some major events in note form, or a short/long summary of the war, what is happening right now, list of major ship losses, etc. Whatever you want to say about this AAR - as long or as short as you want.
Allied/Jap. AAR: Link
Allied/Jap. AAR: Link to your opponent's AAR, if applicable.



1. Hall of Fame

In my opinion all AARs that make it into 1945 should be added by default. Additionally, all AARs that were especially well written, or that were full of great advice, or that were for any other reason memorable go in here. You name the AAR, I'll post it here.

I'll probably add some AARs myself during the next days, but I'm not going to to this alone - others have to contribute, too.

Comment by Terminus: "A very cool, extremely well-written play-test AAR for Alikchi's Iron Storm I scenario. Alikchi was a very sympathetic and creative young forum member (I say "was" because he's vanished from the forum). He and Tankerace are the two forumites responsible for getting me into modding."

Ended: March 1945, Allied auto victory
Comment by Speedy:

  • 2H 1942: Japanese advance in force towards Central China. As such UK/CW forces have no choice but to advance en masse towards Myitkyina to try to relieve the pressure. A prolonged battle here that rages through 1942.
  • Aleutians battle where US CV's sink Junyo + 2 CVL's (Faber you may have to remind me on this). In return CV Yorktown heavily damaged and sunk by IJN SS.
  • PM is taken uncontested by the Japanese.
  • 1H 1943: Allied LBA and attrition force the Japanese to retreat in Burma to Mandalay.
  • Allies first unsuccessful attempt to recapture Wake Island. On the sea is an Allied victory with CV Soryu and Hiryu sunk + massive surface combats whichlead in 3 x Allied BB sunk + c.120 other ships (including invasion ships) to BB Musashi/Nagato + 20 other Japanese ships. On land the attempt is unsuccesful with Allied LCU's being wrecked by CD fire/minefields. Evacuation occurs successfully.
  • Allied SS campaign begins in earnest in SRA regions with several AK/TK vessels being sunk.
  • 2H 1943: Invasion of Marshall Islands begins with no contest from IJN. Relatively peaceful as garrisoned islands are bypassed. CVL Independence sunk by IJN SS.
  • Marshalls suppressed/captured by Allies by October 1943.
  • Allied SS still continue to wreak even more havoc.
  • 1H 1944: Southern SRA invasions begun in earnest on Timor. Rapid island hopping campaign initiated under cover of Allied LBA and RN ships. Surface battles lead to heavy damage to a number of RN Capitol and IJN ships but no major sinkings IIRC.
  • Timor/Bulla/Babo/Maumere/Banjarmasin captured.
  • Moulmein, Burma, invaded which brings the beginning of the end to the Burma campaign. Japanese pushed back towards Raheang.
  • Wake Island re-invaded after 2 months solid bombing. Taken comfortablly with no IJN intervention.
  • 2H 1944: Allies begin to sweep into Siam and have takne all of Malaya exceot Singapore. IndoChina being overrun.
  • Mariana's invaded at Saipan by massive allied force. 80ish ships lost to CD/mines but no IJN intervention and little IJAF interdiction.
  • B29's begin to dominate the area and smack Iwo Jima.
  • Iwo Jima invaded October 1944. P51D's now operate to gain air superiority over Japan.
  • Borneo is taken in SRA by Allies forces isolating Sumatra and Java. Further heavy sea battle around Pontianak and Singkawang leads to heavy damage on both RN and IJN Capitol Ships. BB Kirishima sunk.
  • CV Franklin sunk by Kamikaze's on CV raids towards Okinawa.
  • CV battle in South China Sea leads to CV Intrepid and Bennington being heavily damaged and Japanese CVL being sunk.
  • Allied SS continue to rampage and find few worthwhile targets nowadays.

The Battle for New Jersey (like who would want to do that)
Players: RUPD3658 [Jap.] vs KDonovan [Allies]
Perspective: Joint AAR
Map, Mod, Scen: Stock Map, Scen 15, No mods
Settings: PDU on, 2 day turns, Sub Doctrine ON
House Rules: Turn 1: No landings at bases more than 15 hexes from a Japanese base; Only 1 port attack; No hunting Allied CVs; No Allied orders other than to AC TFs and Chineese units. India: After India was captured Japan returned Karchi to the Allies; Indian Ocean was a no fire zone for both sides; Allied units could not attack in India without first giving 30 days notice; Only 1 Indian unit could move from Karachi until a major city in India was recaptured; Respawned SEAC Chinese units must remain in Karachi. China: No units could enter or exit China without changing to the correct HQ (CEF for Japan and China command for Allies to enter, any HQ to exit); This no longer appllied after the fall of Chungking. Russia: Japan must give 30 days notice before invading and allow the Allies to reposition; No Japanese bombing of Russian industry; Non-Russian Allied LCUs and AC may not enter Russia except to liberate a captured base. Auto victory: Auto victory will not be in effect until 1-1-44; General: No Japanese surface TF could pass Singapore until it was captured by Japan; B-29s can only fly City and ground attack missions; Subs may not unload at enemy bases.
Non-Russian Allied LCUs and AC may not enter Russia except to liberate a captured base
Ended: November 1944, draw
AAR Style: a mix of combat reports (submitted by RUPD) and maps (submitted by Kdonovan) with some humor as well
Comment by KDonovan: In this game, RUPD3658 attempts to become the first player to capture India, China and USSR. The Rising Sun is already flying over India and China, while the Red Army is under siege at Iman, facing imminent destruction. Meanwhile the USN has been racing through the Pacific like Governor Corzine on the Turnpike. The Japanese Home Island of Shikoku has just been invaded, while B29's rain death and destruction down on the Japanese Industry. Other current game notes include, the Allies attempt to recapture India, and the escape of the largely intact KB from the Home Islands, with the USN giving chase (somewhere behind allied lines). The game has seen CV battles, daring raids, and sweeping land campaigns. It is a good primer for new Allied and Japanese players alike.

THEY WERE EXPENDABLE: Nagumo vs Spruance
Players: AdmSpruance [Allies] vs. Nagumo [Jap.] (Bison Frontier)/Freeboy/Belphegor
Perspective: Combined AAR
Map, Mod, Scen: Stock Scen 15
Settings: 1 Day Turns, no PDU's
Ended: ALLIED AUTOVICTORY 1/1/45
Comment by AdmSpruance: After overunning the SRA in 4/42, Japan builds up in the Marshalls for an assault on the Gilberts. Meanwhile, the Allies build up in the Gilberts for an assault on the Marshalls. Major meeting engagement between virtually the entire IJN and USN in the Gilberts in 7/42. Massive "Meeting Engagement" attritional battle fought from 7/1/42-9/1/42. Japan made a huge "Death Star" with 8 CVs and 3 CVLs. Over 600 Allied naval bombers were destroyed in 3 major carrier engagements with no CVs lost on either side. Massive BB, CA, CL and DD losses on both sides. Eerie stalemate between opposing airforces and fleets from Sept. 1942 to Feb. 1943. After massing 300 plus P-38s, the Allies launch "Operation Rolling Thunder" on 2/1/43 and destroy over 1000 Japanese AC in one week. After that, the back of Japanese land based air is broken and the Allies advance through the Marshalls/Marianas/New Guinea/Palaus/Iwo/PI/Okinawa to achieve a 2:1 VICTORY on 1/1/45.
Game started in v1.3 and ended in v1.8. It's very interesting to see the air war change as new WitP versions are released.

Comment by ctangus: No disrespect intended to PzB-sama or pauk-sama, but not only did the Admiral take Hawaii but he's fighting a devastatingly good defense into late '43. To me he's the scariest Japanese opponent I've seen in the AARs.
Comment by VSWG: One of the most successful Japanese campaigns: Admiral Laurent conquered Pearl Harbor and all Pacific Islands! Right now a bloody battle rages on Paramushiro Jima and the surrounding islands. Other front lines are New Guinea, Timor and Burma. A very detailed AAR!

Comment by Cuttlefish: This AAR will focus solely on the fate and fortunes of one Japanese destroyer, the Hibiki. There will be glimpses into what is happening in the wider war, but since everything will be seen from the perspective of this one ship these glimpses may be fragmented or even inaccurate.

..Or how about Truman? Was he well liked?

The Allies still hold Manila, Singapore, all of Burma and India but the Pacific is a Japanese lake and the Continental United States and Australia have been invaded. In return the Allies launched a 500 ship counter-invasion of Java with massive aerial battles raging over the DEI and Burma while massive armies ( 4,000+ AV each ) face each other in China and the Soviet Union.

Feinder(A) v Bilbow(J) CHS - The winds of war are constantly changing
Players: Bilbow [Jap.] vs. Feinder [Allies]
Perspective: (Mostly) Allied (AAR is by Feinder), but AAR is open to both players.
Map Scen: CHS Scen 156 (no mods for flak or CAP), but includes Soviet Fleet.
Settings: PDU on, 2 day turns, 1st turn surprise, 1 port strike anywhere (Manila chosen)
House Rules: See thread, most crucial are no more than 50x AFsize AC, and addl stacking limits on 4e bombers (these are working very well).
Current game date: Mid to Late June 43.
Comments: IMO, Bilbow and I are extremely well matched (hence the title). A successful early Allied ambush of Japanese CVs (in about 04-42), was reversed by an even greater IJN CV victory in 09-42. Also, the Japanese have secured Northern Australia as far south as Daly Waters. Beginning Spring 43 however, the Allies have begun to press Japan on all fronts, initiating a war of attrition. Allied offensives grind forward in Burma, New Guinea, and the Gilberts, and are met by stiff resistance. The war has been a constant seqence of lunge-parry-reposte. My own predilection for maps is quite evident, as each post is a map of the action, and does not actually contain combat.txt reports. At this point, I try to do monthly updates in each theater (China, Burma, Oz, SWPac, SoPac, NoPac).

4. General Tips for writing an AAR

1. How to add images to an AAR:

a) How to capture a screenshot
Hit 'Print Screen' on your keyboard (top right) when on the screen you want to post. This will create an image in the clipboard buffer. From there, you need to paste it into some form of art program - 'Paint', for instance (comes with all MS Windows): Open 'Paint', click on 'Edit' at the top, then 'Paste'. Save the image as jpg. Done!

Keep in mind that the clipboard can only hold one file at a time. You have to alt-tab out of the game and into 'Paint' to paste the clipboard each time after you have hit 'Print Screen', or the second screenshot will overwrite the first. So instead of the Windows clipboard and 'Paint', you might want to use the following program:

IrfanView
http://www.irfanview.com/

It's free, small and easy to use. Start the program, go to 'Options', then 'Capture/Screenshot'. Here you can define the hot key which IrfanView will use to capture a screenshot. At the bottom select 'Save captured image as file' and point the 'Destination directory' to a convenient folder. Select JPG as file format in 'Save As', then hit 'Options' and be sure that the slider is at '100 % Quality' (more on this later). That's it! Hit 'Start' (you will have to do this every time before you want to take a screenshot) and keep IrfanView open in the background. Now you can start WitP and hit the hot key as often as you want, and all screenshots will appear in the folder you selected.

b) How to upload a screenshot.
You can use the Matrix server if you want to upload just one small image per post : Hit the yellow 'Post Reply' button. Directly below the text box, check the 'Embed picture in post', and click on 'Click here to upload'. In the pop-up, browse to the folder with your screenshot and upload the file. As you can see, it has to be a JPG smaller than 200 KB. If your file is larger than that you might want to crop/resize it - see below. Alternatively, you can upload your file to an image host. If you want to upload more than one image per post, you HAVE to use an imagehost. I recommend

http://www.imageshack.us/

It's free and simple. Go there, browse for your file and hit 'host it!'. When the file has been uploaded, Imageshack offers you a variety of links. Select the last one, 'Direct link to image', and paste it into the text box on the Matrix forum between image-tags (hit 'Image' above the text box). It has to look like this, just with square brackets instead of round brackets:

(image)http://img124.imageshack.us/img124/2581/luzonxg7.jpg(/image)

Do this with every image you want to upload, and add your text.

2. How to create nifty images for your AAR:

a) cropping/resizing
b) arrows'n stuff
c) text, text boxes



So if you want to add your AAR to 'Ongoing AARs', or want a memorable AAR added to the 'Hall of Fame', just quote the next post (or send me a PM) and add as much information as you can, and I'll update this list.

Comments: A very cool, extremely well-written play-test AAR for Alikchi's Iron Storm I scenario. Alikchi was a very sympathetic and creative young forum member (I say "was" because he's vanished from the forum). He and Tankerace are the two forumites responsible for getting me into modding.

If making it into 1945 makes the grade, "Shame and Execration" may be of interest.

Stock. Warspite plays Japan and moi plays (poorly) the allies. The AAR starts in 1942 after the allies manage to lose ALL their US carriers. Game auto ends on Jan 1945.

How not to play the allies

Great idea!

I've got a turn in the inbox, so won't put all the details together right now, but there's some notable omissions off the top of my head:

1. PzB vs. Wobbly. (And his opponents' threads). Need I say more?
2. Pauk's sake break. And Andy Mac's corresponding AAR.
3. AmiralLaurent's Bloody Pacific. No disrespect intended to PzB-sama or pauk-sama, but not only did the Admiral take Hawaii but he's fighting a devastatingly good defense into late '43. To me he's the scariest Japanese opponent I've seen in the AARs.
4. Tom Hunter vs Mogami - Lunacy in the Pacific. Lots of good strategic thought for allied players.

I'm sure I'm forgetting several that deserve to be noted.

Cuttlefish's Hibiki AAR is certainly one of (if not) the best "story" type AARs going:
Voyages of the Hibiki

And then Aztez vs. Erstad is good esp for it's longevity. Aztez (allies) took some hits in 42/43, but has stuck with the game, and apty demonstrates how strongly the Allies can come back in 1945, even after a sound throttling in the early game. It's also 3-day turns, which some folks would find interesting.

Okay, I've added all AARs mentioned so far. I suggest that all AAR writers check what I've written, and contact me if they want to add (or alter) something. I encourage everyone to write a small summary of their wars in the comments section.

Again, everyone can add HIS OWN AAR to the 'Ongoing AAR' section - you don't have to wait until someone else suggests your AAR.

EDIT: Below a revised template. Using this makes my job a lot easier...

All AARs mentioned above have been added. Keep'em coming....

Also, I've written a small tutorial on capturing and uploading screenshots for section 3. I'll write a short guide on cropping, resizing and refining screenshots, too - probably using paint.net. I can add links to other screenshot utilities and image software, if people post them here (preferably with a short description). More imagehosts can be added as well.

Exactly!

I've also added "Dude vs Zeta - Hirohito Style" and "Sneer vs Raver , Banzaiiii!!!!" to the Hall of Fame. The latter made it into 1945, and the first is packed with innovative strategies - a 'Must Read' IMO... Too bad it ended early.

The Battle for New Jersey (like who would want to do that)
Players: RUPD3658 (Japs) vs KDonovan (Allies)
Perspective: Joint AAR
Map, Mod, Scen: Stock Map, Scen 15, No mods
Settings: PDU on, 2 day turns, Sub Doctrine ON
House Rules: can't remember them all , but basically we try to keep a fun game
Current game date: October 29th, 1944
AAR Style: a mix of combat reports (submitted by RUPD) and maps (submitted by Kdonovan) with some humor as well
Comments: In this game, RUPD3658 attempts to become the first player to capture India, China and USSR. The Rising Sun is already flying over India and China, while the Red Army is undersiege at Iman, facing imminent destruction. Meanwhile the USN has been racing through the Pacific like Governor Corzine on the Turnpike. The Japanese Home Island of Shikoku has just been invaded, while B29's rain death and destruction down on the Japanese Industry. Other current game notes include, the Allies attempt to recapture India, and the escape of the largely intact KB from the Home Islands, with the USN giving chase (somewhere behind allied lines). The game has seen CV battles, daring raids, and sweeping land campaigns. It is a good primer for new Allied and Japanese players alike.

Hopefully their race will end up like the governer's

Our house rules are/were:

Turn 1:

No landings at bases more than 15 hexes from a Japanese base
Only 1 port attack
No hunting Allied Cvs
No Allied orders other than to AC TFs and Chineese units

India:

After India was captured Japan returned Karchi to the Allies.
Indian Ocean was a no fire zone for both sides
Allied units could not attack in India without first giving 30 days notice
Only 1 Indian unit could move from Karachi until a major city in India was recaptured
Respawned SEAC Chinese units must remain in Karachi


China:

No units could enter or exit China without changing to the correct HQ (CEF for Japan and China command for Allies to enter, any HQ to exit)
This no longer appllied after the fall of Chungking

Russia:

Japan must give 30 days notice before invading and allow the Allies to reposition
No Japanese bombing of Russian industry
Non-Russian Allied LCUs and AC may not enter Russia except to liberate a captured base


Auto victory:

Auto victory will not be in effect until 1-1-44


General:
No Japanese surface TF could pass Singapore until it was captured by Japan
B-29s can only fly City and ground attack missions
Subs may not unload at enemy bases

Other minor agreements were made during the game to keep it fun for both sides.

2 more months until we enter 1945 and the Hall of Fame

Title: Aussie Affair, Beta's Twilight
Players: Luskan [Jap.] vs. Raverdave[Allies]

Comments: Started during WitP Beta. The FIRST AAR, by two of our plank owners. Fantastic humor and insight into how to play this game. Living WitP history. 42 pages, ended due to a long hiatus followed by a PC crash...Sequel is Aussie Affair III

Comments for "From here to...well..it SEEMS like an eternity":

Comments begin now..well..on the next line..well two lines because the next is just filler

Have you ever wondered how Gen. MacArthur can be in the Philippines and Australia at the same time?
..Or how exactly DID they get those PT Boats to forward bases?
..Or why we fought WWII?
..Or what are the economic consequences of wartime shortages?
..Or what role did the legal profession play in WWII?
..Or where did they get all those Dutch replacement pilots when the East Indies and the Netherlands were under Axis control?
..Or how about Truman? Was he well liked?
..Or who invented the Margarita? The Darwin Antipersonel Bomb? The Ponzi scheme? Was it really Ponzi?
..And what about Eleanore? Was she..well..you know..?

Hey..don't look at me. I thought you might know.
