Wow, what a great job. The BEFORE AND AFTER windows.., those are incredible! When you show the results window of the Soviet counterattacks, pure genius. The graphics and notes.., wonderful.
I think I share the feeling that most of us reading this is that you seem to have a sixth sense for how attacks will end, where most of us are still in the dark about what works and what does not.
For example, in post #13, Keunert's attack on your 385th. Soviets used rockets, and lots of tanks and you were in the open. Yet you stand firm and lost very little. The same thing on the Soviet attack of the 9th. You were in the open, Soviets had tanks, etc.., in my mind, this is typical of the results I see. Lastly, your attacks on Sebastopol (in post #16, not post #4), that too is what I think most of us are used to. It appears that a person needs OVERWHELMING superiority for any attack to work. ---- But then there is the rest of your AAR that I do not grasp how you get these results.
I know it is not luck, but what is it that sets you apart from all others? How are you able to predict these results? What do you know that most of us do not? For example,
Post #8, you were able to move 4 Soviet infantry stacks south of Lititchansk, that were adjacent to each other and one of them was in the second line. Then you were able to muster forces (with sufficient AP) to actually attack Lititansk which was in the third line!! I am not sure how that move could be duplicated. I cannot figure out all of the APs nor how you calculate the odds of what it takes to move a stack.
Post #4. You comment that you attacked a Fortified area at 3 to 1. How did you calculate 3/1 based on the Combat Results window? When you say Fortified, do you mean that there was a Fortification in that hex in addition to the Mountains? I have tried as many ways as I can think of attacking Sevastopol, and I can never get anything to work without losing 10,000 men, or something crazy like that. How do you do this? What is the math you do in your powerful brain.
