So what's happening to this French CA currently in the North Sea?

I hope it continues to the Baltic Sea, as ordered.

Allies 2, Axis 10.

Both CW planes fly as fighters.

Allies use 14 points to chance air to air combat odds from 0/0 to -3/+4.

Yea. That was my bomber performing that mission so it is no wonder that the roll was a dud.

Logging in after a considerable absence to say congratulations, gentlemen: this AAR is being featured by Matrix Games on their product page for World in Flames. (I found out because it appeared on my Facebook feed.)

Enjoy your newfound celebrity.

Incidentally, is this game still ongoing?

This is ongoing AAR, but there are two other AARs that are played in priority. One day this will be our primary game too.

You should consider making the game featured at the Matrix product page your priority game to keep the interest of the general public.

I've no idea how this came to be 'featured' on the website. No one asked me. As Mayhemizer has said, the intention is to make Game 1 and Game 2 the priority for the obvious reason we have each put a ton of time and effort into these games. Games 3 and 4 will progress - but will in no way take priority over 1 and 2.

Games 1 and 2 are pretty interesting imo - Game 1 great start for the Axis and then things stalled a bit, but a great start in the USSR for them has brought things alive. Game 2 sees a pretty poor start for the Axis - what if anything - can they do to recover? and an interesting strategy for the USSR.

Certainly if I had been asked (and I think it would have been sensible to have been consulted) then I would have suggested either:

- Matrix show case game 1 (or 2)
- They confirm what they are trying to achieve and we could perhaps have set up a new Game 5 and give this precedence over all bar game 1. So new order 1,5,2,3,4.

It also makes more sense to do that because if the players know that this is being showcased, we can adjust our presentation of the game and the posts to suit the target audience.

Let's be clear, I love doing AAR - they are fun - and I would jump at the chance of doing one for Matrix to 'showcase'. But it would need to be done properly - not least:

- the contributors actually being informed
- what is to be achieved to be agreed i.e. is this a AAR written in a 'teaching' mode? Or is it designed just to show the game and not worry about game mechanic explanations? Is it designed to highlight specific optionals? etc

I saw this on my feed as well and that's why I tuned in. But, What Warspite1 says makes sense. I think that Matrix should contact the people doing the AAR to coordinate. But, I'm glad to follow it, since it's pretty interesting thus far. Thanks for doing it!

Adolf Hitler is made aware of a dastardly plot by Denmark to invade Germany. The Fuhrer has no choice but to order a pre-emptive attack on the warmongering Danes.

No other declarations of war or alignments.

Yeah I know, these Danes eh? Who'd a thought it? The US (throw of 7) are not in the slightest concerned. FDR announces to congress "Herr Hitler is fully justified in taking such action, having discovered the foul Danes evil plot". I think the US President needs a better intelligence network.....


5/6ths of the Danish merchant fleet are on an away day to sunny Reykjavik, while the rest of the navy are anchored in Frederikshaven in the north of the country. The King orders the army to stand down - there is no point in spilling blood for a hopeless cause.

Land: Germany
Combined: Italy and Japan

The discontent between the IJA and the IJN continues to rumble on. The army, keen to exploit the victory at Chengchow, wants all effort put into operations in Northern China. The navy wants to put to sea and sail up and down a bit - but in the end a compromise is reached that satisfies neither party....

Port Attack: None
Naval Air: The Luftwaffe send some long range Zerstorer into the North Sea.
Naval Movement: The old cruiser Idzumo is ordered to the China Sea to escort troop transports loaded to the brim with troops

When Danish ships are aborted, send them to Northern Ireland if possible. If not possible, then any good port in UK.

Naval Interception: The CAP spots the German fighters and the Heinkel He-115c floatplanes they are accompanying (search rolls 3 and 1 for Allies and Axis respectively).

What do the Allies want to do?
