As noted, you are overreacting. Lucky1 clearly stated what he was doing and why. If you don't like it, you could politely ask him once not to do it and the matter could be over.
I wouldn't normally say anything, and I know that I still shouldn't, but I find this amusing since you have to play the first German turn on average 3 times to get Yugo to swing.
I can tolerate ppl play against some rules. But if it comes to the moderator, I'll go serious. Wall street collapsed just because of irresponsibility. IMHO, your view is partial, instead of fair as a moderator. I have already stop the post in the main discussion because of bias, or say blind to certain things and focus on judging ppl without mentioning anything related to the topic. But you are here again in an AAR. I think you are out of the boundary. If you wanna play mean, I'll definitely follow you. As noted, I have clearly stated what I am doing and why. So do not overreact. If you don't like it, you could politely ask him once not to do it and the matter could be over.
First of all, you have bias. I don't know whether RELOAD should happen in an AAR, but you didn't seem to have any problem with Lucky's reload. So I presume you are OK with somebody reloading before telling their foe, and still refusing to stop after their foe's opposition. Very cheerful Moderator position. What Lucky said is what he said. I never agree that there's necessary to reload. As I stated, before given the privilege to reload, everybody should stick to the basic rule of an AAR. And you are breaking it by judging it according to your own resentment. Good job! However, as his foe, I speaks louder than you.
Even if one do wanna multiple choices, he should at least agree to finish one and put some comments before starting another, instead, what Lucky did was comparing to find the less damaged outcome, and play based on that file. Why don't you put some comments on that, instead of being blind to that, before your so called "overreacting"? Do you wanna apply high moral standards just on me? Get a mirror!
Secondly, you are so innocent that you don't even know the rule that frozen S.France can't be reinforced after activated. When you said that Forwarn told you this is very helpful for you to get my point of the strategy and rebalance the game, I was shocked. It was supposed to be a common sense. I kinda over-estimated you then.I am with the opinion that we should at least understand what we are talking about. I thought it's the premise for discussion. But it seems that I was wrong. I hope next time you can read the manual, at least try to read and understand some important points you are arguing.
Thirdly, I am not as you, who's too busy to make a experimentation before telling ppl the "truth". Maybe I am not polite enough, but I am responsible and objective. I tested this strategy for many times before I told the story and try not to mislead the others. And I sent Lucky one of the opening I tested to be a good example. Does that explain the Yog swing thing?
Forthly, are you trying to mess up starting new game with reloading? Are they exactly the same? Or just an excuse for you to judge ppl?
Fifthly, if you think this is a bug to cause moral problem, why don't you fix it as what rjh1971 suggested above? (I presume you carry the responsibility.)
Sixfthly, I wouldn't normally say this, and I know that I still shouldn't, but I find this amusing since I am so wanna meet your math teacher, because I don't know if one have to play the first German turn on average 3 times, or 2 times, to get Yugo to swing. Could you ask him or her for me?
