skinster -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (11/26/2020 1:45:19 PM)

Hi there, I'm interested in joining, what do I need to do?




taffjones -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (11/26/2020 4:27:58 PM)

Game ended
taffjones (Axis) V Earlydoors (Allied)

Axis resigned in 41.

Great game Earlydoor's completely outplayed me. Packed the defence of France, forced early entry of Italy and would have soon had all of NA and EA.

I stupidly took Estonia very early, so Russia joined before I could beat the French.

Game, set and Match to Earlydoors,
Thanks for the lesson in how not to play[:D]

It's rather simple & informal

1) Find someone to play, that agrees to an ELO game
2) Play by the basic rules (listed somewhere in this thread), there's few moves been banned. Think no Diplo on Majors, for example.
3) When you start your game, post in this thread some like this, "Skinster took Allies and is play SomeOtherDude got Axis"
4) When finish game, post he winner
5) ELO records being kept by player here




PJL1973 -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (11/27/2020 6:36:28 PM)

I'm interested in a new game of this, now that the patch is out. My preference is for the allies, and the house rules ElvisJJRambo refers to are these I believe:

quote:

By Cpuncher
1. No diplo on Majors.
2. No diplo on Bulgaria (haven't tested if Allies can keep Bulgaria out of war until Mid 1941).
3. No DOW USSR until 1941.


I'm fine with all 3, so if you are okay with this, then I'll start up a new password-protected game.

I would like to join in on the fun. Can I just enter the ranking system? Would like to test my skill, if I can still hold up.

The house rules seem reasonable. I can play Axis or Allies with no prefernece.

Is something like this planned for WW1 also?

greetings

Yup, just start playing, note the games here when you start and post the results when they're finished.

if anyone wants to set something up they're welcome to - I can share the spreadsheet template that I use to keep track of the games (also used for the WiE tournament)

Game ended ELO [WIN] ElvisJJonesRambo-Allies vs ThunderLizard2-Axis) ---> Another mega grind against skilled player. TL2 used Diplo for Turkey/Spain/Sweden, decided to ignore & spend on Units/Tech. TL2 had Tanks-5/Jets-5, but had to be less in overall units. Russians barely hung on, after losing Urals & his South/East sweep move. Japan got x3 nuked and surrendered first, in December 1945. Germany had Super Jets + Super Tanks which were the last to lay down their swords at the Rhine. Would have taken me to Summer 1946 to get Berlin. What a grind of a win. Close game.

With my bottom rank, I can only go up :) Less games, more quality.




calcwerc -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (11/30/2020 3:03:37 PM)

calcwerc (Axis) - Taifun (Allies). Taifun wins (again). I concede october 1940. Need to practice a lot more before I will get at Taifuns level!
Short game: Poland falls at first turn, attack on France on third (I remember). France heavy defended by lots of British garrisons, AA and all aircraft, and despite early attack Paris falls in August, and one of the Panzer corps are lost in the process (I hoped for no later than May, with no losses). Because i thought he had left all of French Northern Africa undefended, i go on war with France to punish him after fall of Paris. BIG gamebreaking mistake, which makes my timeplan for Barbarossa impossible. Meanwhile Japan ok (but not overly good) progress, but also here he manages at one point to cut off rails in Northern China, thus staggering supply for Southern offensives. He stops also all convoys from Norway, even after the convoys are redirected to Oslo. Without naval bomber this is difficult to counter.
Great gameplay by Taifun, very recommended for those out there who seeks a real challenge! I learned a lot of both games, although they ended early.




Taifun -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (11/30/2020 4:26:05 PM)

Many Thanks calcwerc for your time and serious approach! [sm=00000436.gif]
The "NO VICHY" decision is always a tricky decision that must be seriously meditated by the Axis player.




Taifun -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (11/30/2020 4:37:08 PM)

I am ready for a new game as Allied player [sm=00000036.gif]

Having problem with my matrix e-mails. My messages are not delivered. ElvisJJonesRambo will you play?




ElvisJJonesRambo -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (11/30/2020 5:07:17 PM)

Taifun --- Hey buddy, I've got 3 good ones going. The Polish dude who likes Allies is giving me a tough time already in Norway/Africa/Russia. Dang it. I'm got a mirrored pair with this other dude, right at the height of the war(s). Need to bust some chops quick as Allies. About ready to lose India, after losing China. But I took England proper.

Answer your question, yeah, I'll take you on, but I gotta work now.

-Legend

If I could be you, if you could be me
For just one hour
If we could find a way to get inside
Each other's mind
If you could see you through my eyes
Instead of your ego
I believe you'd be, I believe you'd be surprised to see
That you've been blind
Walk a mile in my shoes
Walk a mile in my shoes
Yeah, before you abuse, criticize, and accuse
Walk a mile in my shoes




Taifun -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (11/30/2020 5:23:32 PM)

ElvisJJonesRambo -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (12/3/2020 2:36:18 AM)

Game ended, ElvisJJonesRambo (Allies) lost to JM74 (Axis)

[LOSS] 1939 ElvisJJonesRambo (JM74 = Axis) ---> ELO[LOSS] Held Paris until March 1942. Stupidly, I continued to fight out on Brest. Was able to hold Brest and other port until Yanks showed. Was buying all the time I could for Russia. Germans were filling bodybags full of Americans, Canadian & Brits. The Indians sacrificed in France & Egypt. Then came Japs. I was so focused on France, that Jap overran China, then India. Japs owned have the board. The Reds attacked, attacked, and attacked, with the huge MMPs, but took mega death at Warsaw. Thought I had the game fighting near Warsaw in 1943. Nazis and Italians had few units, and I had air superiority in England. But I spent nothing in Naval. Nazis had experienced units. I had nothing for ground wars. Even had Tank tech advantage in Russia. No balance. Surrendered. There's no short cuts to victory.




ElvisJJonesRambo -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (12/3/2020 11:37:49 PM)

Game ended, ElvisJJonesRambo (Axis) defeats JM74 (Allied)

[WIN] 1939 ElvisJJonesRambo (JM74 = Allies) ---> ELO[WIN] He split our mirrored set. With Axis winning both games, which seems to be rare. Was able to snag port in England with paratroops and never looked back. Russia surrendered in September 1944.




Fafnir -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (12/4/2020 6:55:02 AM)

Game ended: Fafnir (Axis) vs. zzmzzm (Allies).
Allies surrendered in early 42.
Germany attacked Russia in early 41.
Since there was still winter in parts of Russia the soviet winter events happend in March or April doing not much damage.




chrDan76 -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (12/4/2020 5:20:24 PM)

Hello,

I would like to join this tournament, too.

I had only a couple of games. A low elo opponent for the start would be great. MAybe someone wants a Match. I prefer Axis.




ElvisJJonesRambo -> RE: The World at War ELO Tournament. Looking for opponent (12/5/2020 12:32:20 AM)

End of game.

1939 ElvisJJonesRambo (Marcinos1985= Allies) ---> ELO[LOSS] Germans stalled in Norway/Africa/Russia. Got horrible weather in Russia. Rain and Mud. Standard attack, standard defense. Surrendered in June 1942, Germans already being pushed back. Weather is everything who punches first. Luftwaffen took huge Winter damage.

Norway/Africa soaking German MMPs each turn. Germany already broke in 1942.

Japs, doesn't matter when no Russia is lost cause.
