Beware.

Do not be fooled by Warspite1. He is a very competent wargamer.

He has more or less already won as USSR in the multi-player MWIF game but to modest to say so. But he is to modest to say so and it will take a while to actually conquer Germany. It is only 1942 and he has been kicking the Japanese around already and just conquered Manchuria.

I thought he was winning the Decisive Campaigns: Warsaw to Paris game before it crashed. Now we might never find out.

The opening in the 4th MWIF game as Japan is better than average if I may say so. And I should know as I am the one being mauled.

And I played against Warspite1 a couple of times in DC:B and there his play as Germany was inspiring and often brilliant. I think luck won me that game. And maybe a slight supply mismanagement although that is quite easy to do in DC:B.

Harsh but true. And by the way, I told you never to post a picture of me in my informal 'lounging around on a Sunday afternoon' wear.

I am sorry about the picture. I thought it would be ok if I masked the face.

Strange custom really. Anybody in charge of a Royal Navy ship is entitled to be called captain but only those of Captain and above are allowed to were the rank. Even I as a mere Petty Officer was once left in charge of a patrol boat and therefore captain. At the time it had a crew of one and was very much attached to land.



What do you mean MERE petty officer?

To be fair, the four games of MWIF only require me to play some of the major powers e.g. in two of the games I am part of the Axis and so play either the Germans alone or the Italians/Japanese, so the drain on time is not as great and I get the advantage of having a grown up to help me .

Obviously, without another human, the AI games can be progressed or slowed down as and when time allows.

I'm just glad you didn't preface this comment with "[splurting]" or "[spurting]". That's a mental image that, quite frankly, I don't need.

I wish we had a gaming room. If we did you would be invited. And three other chaps so we could play a 6 player game of the latest WIF version.

If one goes back in time one finds William the Conqueror (although he was a ghastly Norman) and later there's Edward I - Hammer of the Scots, which is rather vulgar (the less said about that the better), but generally we are more likely to favour less ostentatious nicknames, names that, so to speak do what they state on the tin e.g Elizabeth I - the Virgin Queen (yeah right) or Queen Victoria - the Grandmother of Europe (and didn't she have some unruly grandchildren!).



In case anyone cares, William the Conqueror was known as "William the Bastard" before embarking on his little voyage to thrash the Anglo-Saxons.

Steve,

Commodore was used for the CO of PATWING 11 ? (IIRC) when I was stationed at Moffett Field AIMD back in 85-88, But he was an O-6. Also, Commodore is still used in the SUBFORCE. Interestingly enough during my last re-enlistment in '97 I had requested the the most junior Ensign on-board (I had rate-converted to STS from AT in '88) to be the Re-enlisting Officer. Now, 20 years later, that same Ensign is now an O-6 and the Commodore of Submarine Squadron 16. I actually bumped into him on base the other day. And even more interestingly my last shore duty station was at Submarine Group 10 Training and Readiness which became a re-commissioned Submarine Squadron 16. Truly a small world!



I spent much of my active duty Navy career as a TAR (Training and Administration of Reserves if I remember correctly). After I was stationed where I was a reservist, and had my old Reserve CO reenlist me - I made a habit of being reenlisted by Reserve Officers. Worked.
