DRommel -> 4de Triumph game (11/19/2017 10:01:19 AM)

We started a new Triumph game

below sides versus players list.

Axis minors:........DRommel

version V1e

Germany juni 41
The most imported event of the first turns is the kick of operation Barbarossa.

It started pretty well for the Germans I think.

I changed the offensive start from my previous game a bit.
Now I not only surrounded more units (red dots) but destroyed at least 5 HQ's (orange X's)in the process.


DRommel -> RE: 4de Triumph game (11/19/2017 6:43:30 PM)

Germany juni 41
Kills versus losses

The kills of inf looks a bit low but there are many units surrounded so they count also as kills.
Look at the kills for staff (HQ's). Also a lot of fighters destroyed. I think that I destroyed most of the Russian front-line air force.


DRommel -> RE: 4de Triumph game (11/21/2017 3:57:41 PM)

further update Jun 41

sudfront: noting significant to report
westfront: quiet
nordfront: A group of U-boots stumbled on a small fleet of destroyers of the coast the Shetlands. Most of them got promptly sunk by the luftwaffe.

on the move

We started our offensive in N-Africa but there was no enemy to be found. The Allies had retreated out of reach for a full assault so only an air raid was conducted

Art and air raids were executed on Russian units.

building our defences and forces.

### ICYM
This turn I was unable to turn over the SS oil well to Germany
There is an action card for giving an resource to an ally but it didn't work for the ss oil well

The card did work for the Axis to give one of their wells to Germany

icym -> RE: 4de Triumph game (11/21/2017 6:48:30 PM)

The Gift Resource Location action card does not work on synthetic oil plants - Germany cannot transfer them to another regime.

However the SS can transfer its synthetic oil to Germany, or take it back again. The SS receives a separate Transfer SS Synthetic Oil card for doing this, but that card is currently set to be dealt to the SS in July 1941. So one more month and you will be able to do it.

Impressive opening offensive on the Russian front by the way [:)]

DRommel -> RE: 4de Triumph game (11/22/2017 8:00:19 AM)

thanks, We will see if my slight change of the offensive opening and your change in building fortifications will do the trick of giving the Ostkrieg a better balanced outcome. Until now non of my games (3de & 4de triumph) have reached the point where Germany is losing to soon doing to unbalance of the game.

ArmouredLion -> RE: 4de Triumph game (11/27/2017 4:52:38 PM)

Overwhelmed: cities fall and whole armies evaporate as German forces encircle and destroy. In just two weeks, the fascist invasion devours over a hundred miles leaving Stalin ghost white and beside himself, almost unable to direct his armies. The Soviets can only fall back, hinder, and hope to regroup as they assess their disastrous predicament. And even in this, the slaughter and destruction of the coming weeks will only be slightly mitigated. The world is watching closely, and the verdict given is a near unanimous: death of Mother Russia!

DRommel -> RE: 4de Triumph game (11/30/2017 9:06:57 AM)

Germany juli '41

Ostfront: Operation Barbarossa

The surrounded Russians units did some desperate attacks but our losses where very light compared to theirs.

Ostfront: Operation Barbarossa

The surrounded Russian units moving towards my supply lines could turn out to be more then a torn in my side,
so I have to deal whit it now

legend: red arrows attacks, black arrow supply lines cut, bridges blown


DRommel -> RE: 4de Triumph game (11/30/2017 9:57:00 AM)

Germany juli '41

Ostfront: Operation Barbarossa

Massive retreat of the Russian Army. Looks more like a panic run.

HrsGrpp nord: We continue to push towards Riga. In front of the City we caught up with a large force of retreating Russians. Only a small part of them could escape over the River into Riga. We also took Minsk after a small but fierce battle.
We assigned the 5 Arm to contain and destroy the surrounded Russian troops in our sector.

HrsGrpp center: Our units closed in on Minsk from the east, doing so we caught up with an other Russian HQ and cut it of from the main force. While units of HrsGrpp nord took the city we past it and continued driving east.

HrsGrpp Oekra´ne: The surrounded city of Lvov was taken and with it the troops in it. Our 7 PzArm races towards the Dnieper river and Kiev. East of the Karpedian Mountains the 9 PzArm and 10 Arm meet, after two big battles, 12 Arm of HrsGrpp sud.

HrsGrpp sud: The 12 Arm makes contact with units of HrsGrpp Oekra´ne. This cuts of a hugh force of Russian troops in the Karpedian Mountains.
Also the 11 Arm managed to cross the Southern Bug river and so surrounding again some Russian units.

legend: red dots= surrounded units, orange dots= Russian units, X's and planes= major engagements

Tightening the ring around the Russians in the Kapedian mountains.


Kill-losses ratio after German turn juli '41


DRommel -> RE: 4de Triumph game (11/30/2017 9:39:43 PM)

###ICYM and maybe all

SW or ASW sector: the units in the sector doesn't count but only units on the hex with the letters on it count to the total of subs or Destroyers.
I'm a right for this????

ernieschwitz -> RE: 4de Triumph game (11/30/2017 9:47:05 PM)


That is completely right.

icym -> RE: 4de Triumph game (11/30/2017 11:01:48 PM)

I have seen other games where players have misunderstood this requirement. In the upcoming revised version extra wording has been added to the SW/ASW areas that should make this perfectly clear.

Geramny september 41

after 4 months of all out war our economics looks pretty good.
- our army is still growing after or despite operation Barbarossa.
- we could increased our production significant
- raw production is on track
- also oil production is on the positive side


DRommel -> RE: 4de Triumph game (1/26/2018 5:03:08 PM)


does anyone now what's happened to this game
The US turn sits long time in dropbox and my E-mails get no response at all.

DRommel -> RE: 4de Triumph game (2/9/2018 8:36:34 AM)

First of all
@ Icym specially
I think a discovered a bug in this scenario
The SS produced an AA tracked unit but instead that it moves as tracked it moves as a gun
so way to slow
