This AAR will be ALLIED ONLY!

I have agreed to start my 3rd PBEM game vs FDRLincoln.

This will be an fun ride. I know the opponent from witp days since we have clashed before when he stepped up and took japanese empire into his hands.

That was done after the original opponent had vanished into thin air.

I know I have reliable opponent in the books. You never can have too many of these.. well I have 3 now!

Anyway, we will be using the scenario 6 (DaBabes AA and ASW modifications included).

That should fix the most damaging things from the stock scenarios.

FDRLincoln will also add few japanese ships that are missing from the game. In return I will have couple of new toys as well.

"However, I have a proposal to add a little bit of fun. There were several small and unusual Japanese ships which existed in real life but that aren't in the game. I am thinking of the survey ship Tsukushi, the old training ships/armored cruisers Idzumo and Iwate, and a pair of target ships that were converted into convoy escorts later in the war. To balance these additions, I would add an equivalent tonnage of Allied ships, in the form of extra destroyers for the RAN and RNZN for you to use at the start of the war, to keep things balanced. I could also add an AA-cruiser refit for the old Dutch CLs, to give them some use if they survive the early part of the war."


I'am definately fine with these modifications.

As for the format of this AAR. I will try something a bit diffrent once we get the show on the road. More on that once we start...

Both of us have ongoing game(s) that take priority ofcourse.

It time to test how much I have learned from the other opponents. I will make an promise though that japanese will not have "happy hour" in this one!

Stay tuned for more...

I won't be looking at this thread after this, but I just wanted to say that I am looking forward to this game. My current PBEM is against a very skilled opponent and I'm having a lot of fun. I wanted to compare how the ASW/AA changes in DaBabes work, so when Aztez suggested a rematch from our original WITP days, I was game.

Both of us have other PBEMS going that will take priority, as well as real life family and work matters, so this game may be a little slow. I will start a separate Japanese AAR once we begin.

I like your format. Very creative. However, do include the occasional comment and combat report. It will help flesh it out. Good hunting.

Thanks. All bets off how this turns out!

Already can say that need to focus on China since getting slapped there due to sloppy play initially!

Well.. I another turn in the inbox it seems. I try to get that sorted out tonight (hopefully).

First day back in the job after summer vacation. Already can say that I could definately live without all these IT problems!
