Great!! Get excited reading this!
I spent a couple of weeks on and off on this scenario, tried all sorts of tactics, could not even get a marginal victory, which led to think, history happened for a reason.
Keep on Daz, I will have to daily check your update :)

Really looking forward to this since Elseborne Ridge is like my great white whale. Forever taunting me but I am never able to harpoon more than a marginal victory.

Looks like at least from the planning stages that we have doen the same major tactic of how to get Piper safely off the map for maximum points. Now I am interested in seeing how you achieve success in those dense forests and death traps of towns.

What levels are you playing at for the Axis (supply/reinforcements/weather)?

Thanks
Conrad




dazkaz15 -> RE: Elsenborn Ridge AAR by Daz (5/25/2013 4:34:15 AM)

Thanks guys [:)]
I will be playing Historical reinforcements, Historical weather, normal supplies and realistic Orders delay.

Given your foreknowledge of the scenario...
a) perhaps you should have done this AAR for a scenario you havent played, to see how all this planning survives post day 1.
however,
b) once the battle begins, it will still be interesting, to see if the A.I still has surprises for you. ( I suspect that it will!)

[OT. Try using a different font]




Phoenix100 -> RE: Elsenborn Ridge AAR by Daz (5/28/2013 8:05:14 AM)

Superb, Daz. Just seen that you're doing this. It's fantastic. Lot of work. I watch with interest. Don't rush it!

Thanks for the feedback mate.

Knowing where the enemy objective are is by no means a guarantee of a win as I'm sure some of the others that have played this will testify, and there is still a real chance that we might not get a Decisive Victory, even with all this planning, and prior knowledge.
Certainly it will help though as it gives us a very good indication of where the enemy is likely to counter attack.

I'm writing this more as a guide to others on what I consider is the best way to approach this scenario, than to test myself, on my own planning, and tactics skills.
This is partly because I have had a few people request it in my other thread on the General Discussions Forum, but also because it's the one I am most comfortable with at the moment.
I have actually only played it all the way through twice now, but it has been the main scenario I have been using to learn to play the game ever since I bought it, so I have dabbled with it on numerous occasions.

If I ever get to the end of this AAR I will most certainly try one of the other longer ones I haven't played.
Do you have any suggestions as to which other scenario, you might like to see this kind of AAR for?
I have not fully played any of the long scenarios yet, but I have most of the short ones.

The last image is actually made up of 3 different fonts.
The one I have been primarily using is Berlin Sans FB Demi, (because it sounded German [:D]) however that last slide also had Times New Roman italic, and Myriad Pro. Which one is it you are finding hard to read?
