I'm looking for a Soviet opponent in a CG 41-45 game. I would prefer an experienced player, who has played more than one campaign as the Soviets and has a good basic grasp of how to do this. A really experienced Soviet willing to teach me a lesson will also be appreciated.
I have played a couple of campaigns as the Soviets, and I believe I have a sound basic grasp of the concepts of the game. My obvious task for this game is to transfer this to playing as the Axis.
One thing: I'm looking for a game to go well beyond the fall/winter of 1941. So I will not give in at the first sign of trouble, although I prefer not playing on when the situation is absolutely hopeless either. If you feel differently, please do not apply for this game.
I am suggesting a random weather, Normal Scenario with no Soviet bonus and normal blizzard, but I am willing to play Soviet +1 attack and mild blizzard.
I think I will be able to do an average of three turns pr week, and plan to do an AAR similar to the one I did vrs Pelton: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4120012 or Hermann: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4266269
My suggestion for house rules as follows:
No Para drops
No bombing of HQ's unless stacked with a ground unit
No naval invasions before November 1941, none outside the 1939 Soviet borders before January 1943
In addition if Sevastopol is either isolated, or in German hands, none west of the Crimea.
10 day rule = no turns in 10 days by one player the other wins by default (unless notified of the delay).
New Patches will be used as soon as possible.
Additional Auto VC:
If the Axis holds less than 180 victory points at the beginning of the blizzard of 1941 it is a Soviet auto win. If the Axis holds more than 250 victory points at the beginning of the blizzard of 1941 it is an Axis auto win. I am not really that familiar with the Victory point settings, so I am very open to suggestions here. If both sides feel the game is interesting, the game will obviously ignore the above auto win settings.
Let the games begin!
