12/14/2017 20:01 tucson time.......I've decided to suspend this AAR and work on putting a really good
Axis PO in D21 so people can play the Soviet side against the Axis.

EDIT: I've had a good look at the relative force size ( Germans vs Soviet ) and I've determined that
Elmer doesn't know how to do a "mobile defense" like the Germans did and there's way too few Axis
units to make up a solid front line from top to bottom, which is the ideal Elmer situation and that
the performance of any PO would be unempressive at best. The Soviet player would probably have a
blast against the stumbling Axis PO. Or become bored with such a low performer and quit after Moscow
is captured. Either way about 50 turns or so is about right for the quality that can be installed.
And the existing copy of D21 already has an Axis PO for about 50 turns so my trying to redo what
Steve, Ricki, et.al. have done already would be pretty much redundant labor.

I've decided to forget about using Elmer and just continue the AAR playing it by hand.

Larry,

Thanks for the very detailed D21 AAR. It inspired me to start a D21 game & I'm having a blast.

A couple of questions:

1) What do you mean when you say a unit, "respawns?"

2) It seems like D21 would make a good PBEM game but I sense that the TOAW grognards would rather play something else.
a) What scenario is superior to D21 for PBEM?
b) Why isn't D21 a good PBEM?

Again, thanks I really like your AAR's.

Steve

Good for you. How about doing an AAR so I can post helpful hints?

When a unit is killed typically it will reconstitute and enter the game again, or spawns in a
specific hex, the reconstitution point for the formation. So I deemed it respawn-ing.

FITE is a really good one for PBEM games. American Civil War is PBEM only. General Patton and I
started a D21 game as a PBEM and I think it went just fine.

I'm not sure....the scenario designers said something about it being designed specifically for
playing against the Soviet PO and for a hunam player to attempt to play the Soviet side is
said to be a game that is unbalanced or something.

I'm going to go see if I can't find some WWII pictures to post in them for the immersion factor.

If I were you I'd go to this guy first. He makes things happen
on the beta team. Other than that you'd need to get the attention
of the monitor of this forum and I'm really not sure who that is.
But I think Tamas K. can come up with a solution for you. I've
got my fingers crossed.
