Canoerebel as a player or Sensei? I learn more towards Sensai.

It was with some concern I came over this threat
First of all, thanks to all of you that honor me with your nominations - I'm not worthy

As mentioned, because of lack of hours in the day I'm not the omnipresent Guru on this forum like Mogami used to be.
I still think if any, Mogami is the true Grandad Grandmaster of WitP!

Remember I played PacWar (Pacific War) with Mogami eons ago, he was always around and answered questions and comments.
I think this kind of capacity should be appreciated more than a players win - loss ratio on the battlefields of the South Pacific.

So many great players in this forum but sometimes I do feel that AndyMac is getting an unfair hearing; having played PacWar - UV - WitP and AE from the Jap side for a decade
it's not easy for Andy to fight a Scen 2 game against me and a strengthened Jap Empire. Andy is a master of the land battles as well as with his LBA. I like to play with my ships, so there we have it!-)

PS! I do have played Allied side LoBaron.
Played it as much as Jap side in UV but since a grand campaign takes forever I had to pick a "main" side and ended up with Japan as I like the challenge.
The Allied campaigns I played in WitP ended prematurely as my opponents went to Afghanistan and Iraq...real war called.

John,

I dion't see why someone cannot be both. In fact I think it is quite likely that several people would be represented on both lists.

As to adding the fourth criteria. I wouldn't be in favour of that for a very simple reason. I think it would exclude people who are motivated to teach and have been found to be helpful in explaining things to others but who might pitch their explanations at a particular level.

E.g. Someone who pitches their explanations at a newbie level - Sardaukar for example - does provide a very useful service and idoes, IMO, warrant a nomination as Sensei. On the other hand his explanations will be of little use to more advanced players.

The situation is even worse when you are talking about someone pitching explanations of advanced concepts. This isn't a paid lecturing job so some element of pitching the points made at a particular level and accepting that it may be a year or two of play before others have enough basic and intermediate knowledge to begin really using those points in-game must, IMO, be accepted. I don't buy into the thing that all lessons can appeal equally to all levels of students at all times. I think that's just far too PC and unrealistic. Sure you have to bring weaker students along but at some point you have to recognise that to understand certain points you need to understand certain fundamentals and thus some "streaming" is important. If that wasn't the case then you'd just be able to lump all 4 years of a degree course in together and let them go to whatever lectures they wanted whenever they wanted so long as they went to them all in the four years. That, obviously, isn't feasible or even commonsensical.

So, I think that fourth criteria is not a great idea on the basis that it would create what I can only assume is this unintended consequence.


PzB,
Aye, I think that when one player is very good at certain things it often serves to make the other's play look "bad" when, really, that is merely a reflection of how good the other player's play is. Of course the converse can also occur. I think the former is happening in your game vs AndyMac while the latter is, possibly, happening in Greyjoy's game.

Oh I made a few corkers of strategic mistakes as well but I have nothing if not tenacity to come back !!!!.

'buck fever' off of DEI being one and the flyby of Line Islands being the 2nd that spring to mind.

I would surmise that very few players would have seen a surprise invasion by 4+ allied divs in mid 43 backed by the full USN that captures a working airbase on day 1 and is entrenched ashore as an opportunity to spank the allies........

Ignore my mistakes in that campaign and just think about the audacity of a counter invasion in the teeth of what I had brough for that campaign. The willingness to roll the dice when its warranted is the key - yes I had some bad luck but very few Japanese players would have played that as aggressively most would have pulled back and tried to shorten their lines.

I propose some type of handicapping system as one would for horse racing or yacht racing.

For eg., how about "Best AE Grandmaster without having read the manual"


or maybe

"Most Improved"

On second thought, please don't allow me to hijack what can be a useful thread. I apologize and hope the rest of you guys can refrain from the temptation to participate in the hijacking.

I must admit I am similar to Sandra Bullock, except in looks, figure and bank balance.

Hijack is such a harsh word. Besides, I think we are nearing consensus. The true AE Grandmasters should be required to enter their moves with a 120lb jockey on their back....and they should feel the whip if they take too long too.

That should een things out a bit
