I was once able to at least draw... I made a video AAR, but for some reason YT removed it (it wasn't political, the video I mean).

Also, review the AD and MRPB in th editor; if the scenario ain't adjusted, maybe that's one reason why you can't win or draw against the 'Amerikaner'. If you don't know how to change the Attrition Divider etc, drop me a line and I will fix it for thee.

Hi, tanx for reply. Attrition divider is 10, max round per battle is 99. We are in default value. I tried this scenario a couple of time, and finally I achieve a marginal victory on turn 11 (fog of war off) by encircle US army to cut off the 2 supply source, capture Bures and Lezey but not Arracourt, holding my 3 Obj (Moncourt, Maizieres and Moussey). But not a real victory, it seems more an AI big fail. xd
Can you post in the future an AAR at this scenario on German side? I follow your tutorial, you do a very nice work. :) Off course this scenario is very unbalanced and pro Amerikaner.

Not really un-balanced.... the PzBde concept of the Wehrmacht was... well, not even like a half cooked chicken... :D

Alas, the AD and MRPB 'problem' or, shall we say, 'findings':

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3045873

So, it's a half-day/turn scenario, so I'd adjust the AD to 28, MRPB to 3. The latter is adjusted in most cases, 'cept some real bloody pre-WW1 slaughters, to 3 or 4. As for the AD, see the link above; that will explain it to thee.

Tanx Klink, but my strategies consist to wait some AI big fail and occupy undefended city. I conquer in battle only Bures, for the rest of time... defend, defend and defend. XD

Looks like it is possible to win with the stock version, but *very* HARD.
This was played with full FOW and all the new TOAW4 rules.
It took me about 6 attempts to win.

For me the key is to grab those Lezey and Bures ASAP.
Then entrench & defend with ignore losses.
Biggest problem for the Germans is the supply situation.
Most of my units were red/orange.
HQ supply indicator was mostly around 1%-7%.
So eventually I even stopped bombardments.




This is a tough one.
Actually I think it is rather limited in your tactical options when playing the axis. Maybe some rework should be done.
Cheers
Terry
