I've played my first GC (vs the computer opponent) and due to several mistakes made whilst learning the game, I've also decided to restart. I've decided to read through a few AARs in preparation for my new GC.

Are there any AARs that are must reads from an instructuve point of view? I mostly play as the Axis, but any good Soviet AARs might be useful too.

Thanks!

Some good Axis AAR's would be any game played by Pelton.  He and Flavius are playing now and it's considered by many the AAR of the month.  Both are good players and as I understand it Flavious is a WITE playtester so he should know what he's doing.  If you know what I mean.  I'm learning a lot from the both of them.  I'm still rather new at this and just about any AAR can teach me a thing or two.  But you know what I mean.

I think Bletchley Geek has a good Soviet AAR. He's trying very hard to be as informative as he can be while it still being enjoyable to read.

QBall is another AAR that is good to read.

I would second this. Bletchley Geek has written a very impressive AAR.

When i started playing this game i learned some trix from Charons AAR, while that is an "old" AAR its still informative.
Its from the German side against the AI.
Some things have changed within the game but the basics are the same.

This game has a lot of layers and details not mentioned in the manuel.

Two more: go for "Tarhunnas" or "Q-Ball". However those are PBEMs, and the game looks very different in human vs human. Versus the AI: I remember one AAR from "CharonJr" running until decisive victory for the Axis in 1942 with lots of good comments. Still it was an earlier version - certainly not 1.05 - but basically it showed the do's and dont's when playing the AI.

Not to hijack the OP`s thread, but that my problem. Any ideas where to find them past the WIKI
& how to apply them to the rather opaque interface ?

Any good AAR`s VS the AI would be helpful too ?
TIA

Make sure you read the what's new Pdf in your WitE folder.
Also Big Angorak did a good AAR vs. the AI thats been stickied, called a Year at the front with Field Marshall noob. It's older but it's quite informative.
