Paul I haven't finished that turn yet, so you're describing an attack ComradeP hasn't even seen yet. I'd ask you (and it's an understandable mistake) to not mention anything you read in an AAR thread until one of the two players approaches the topic first.
This touches on a subject that came up when I was intially challenging some of the assumptions, hypotheses, and claims being made about how hosed the Axis are. I was asked to show "proof" how they aren't, and to bolster my counterclaims that many of ComradeP's problems are coming from how (I feel) he is misplaying the Axis, by not utilizing doctrine essential for playing to their early war strengths and advantages vis-a-vis the Soviets.
Much of my analysis was directly influenced by both yours and his excellent AARs. Being able to see both sides, of course, helps immensely. However, it also makes it very difficult for someone to offer concrete examples of where someone has 'failed', here in the open forum, where the discussion has since boiled over. If I show a screenshot from one of ComradeP's posts, then it gives too much information to notenome, and vice versa. Thus, the only way that I could think of to 'prove' my point was to challenge ComradeP to a game - a challenge that he has graciously accepted.
There is another way to show the greater community some examples of what I feel to be 'good' Axis doctrine, versus 'bad' Axis doctrine, and that would be to - with both yours and ComradeP's expressed permission - post a few screenshots taken from both of your AARs along with some of mine from current PBEM games that I have going. That way, I can offer a contrast between the strengths and weaknesses of our various approaches, and throw the subject out for further analysis. I don't know if this particular thread would be the best one for it, or the Axis doctrine thread, or a fresh thread altogether. In any event, such an analysis would, again, hinge on both of you permitting me to show the screenshots. What do you gents think? How should I proceed, in order to more effectively participate in the discussion?
