Several commenters on the AAR even noted that Andy Mac seemed to be playing like the AI.




A side effect of staring into the abyss too long. Nietzsche warned us against such things.

Perhaps that's why Nietzsche went mad.


No, it was syphilis.

Dan will reach autovictory in our horrifically imbalanced Mod PRIOR to real life. This is being done DESPITE the changes in the complete outrageousness of RA 5.0 (about 20 Mod iterations ago and way too far favoring the Japanese) AND my complete defeat of two Allied Field Armies in 1943/1944.

The Allies ARE destined to win no matter what. To deny this is idiotic. It is simple truth.
Except for the times they don't. Any of PzB's opponents want to speak up?

The question for JFB is how well can one do compared to Real Life. That's it. Did you follow the Code of Bushido? If so, you fought the good fight and, hopefully, have learned more to take into your next match. I know I have. Dan and others have taught great lessons over the last five years of life. CHEERS to all of them for the lessons, insight, and education.

Writing AARs exposes the authors to good and bad experiences. In many ways they become a labor of love for the writers and readers. Great commendations go to anyone willing to risk themselves in choosing this path. Wish that more would chose to do it.




I really wish people would take PzB's games with the boulder of salt that they deserve. He jacked his Japanese Empire up very heavily and played a very slick operational game. The real telling thing is this: how many of his games ended with him bemoaning the inability for the Japanese Empire to support his massive fleet and air movements?


If you consider that he only played one game that he did an AAR on and won it easily against AndyMac, I guess it was once. Even though he did find it hard to support his troops, he won the game.


I suggest you look back over that AAR: it ended with him claiming that Scen 2 was imbalanced regarding Japan's supply situation. In actual fact he'd burned through his supply in the mid-war. If AndyMac had persevered into 1945, even his heavy losses would have been made good and PzB's empire would have crumbled.

As it happens, it didn't and instead of his game being a textbook example of what happens when Japan neglects supply/fuel conservation, it's referred to as evidence that Japan stands a reasonable chance of winning without going for auto-victory.

I don't write this with the intention of deriding either player here, but I find the cult-of-personality around some players to be very tiresome when it's never backed up by the evidence.

+1 That is what I said . I also do not mean to disparage either player, and I, as I mentioned, it appeared to me, in reviewing that AAR, that Andy Mac was more interesting in play-testing AI strategies than playing his best game. I also agree that with all of Japan's fuel and supply reserves depleted, Andy Mac probably still would have won that game despite PzBs successes.
