Anyone up for giving the new rules a spin before you play-test them? What's the worst that could happen? C'mon, it'll be an adventure.

If I get multiple responses, I'll take the first one.

I played you once as Axis, so I think I will try Allies this time. Into the unknown! Only the gaming gods know what we may encounter.

I will PM you the password.

As Ktonos is one of the better players it would be fun to get some info on how the game against Fafnir developed...


Sorry for late response, I was in vacation for most of August, with minimal internet access.

I never had a chance. I think my game went more or less in a copy-paste as yours vs Fafnir. Axis made an early invasion of France, followed by an August successful Sea Lion. From there on it was a slippery slope. Game was over several months before 1943, but we agreed to play out the US invasion. In the end the Axis took Washington DC for the win.

Fafnir knows how to uber-optimise readiness resulting in almost every single combat being a massacre. As soon as I saw his unupgraded panzers shattering French armies fully entrenched in cities I knew this was over. These early victories with minimal casualties granded a higher than usual NM which in turn later further boosted the optimization.

ELO standings have been updated.

I posted some interesting statistics in July

There are lots of suggestions to change the tournament. I can make 1 which awards more for a lower-ranked player beating a higher ranked player. Let me know what you all think. I don't have the inclination to mess with it more than that. If someone else would like to take over and modify the tournament based on suggestions made in July "Have at it."

No luck in the world can save me... It's not even 1940 and Fafnir is on the road to Paris. Benelux was taken in the first 4 turns of the game. The US has to build fortifications around Washington ASAP

Tournament match completed, Ktonos(Axis) vs Markiss(Allies), Axis decisive victory, mid 1943.

See, that wasn't so hard. Anyone else up for giving the new rules a go? I'll take the first response, either side.

Looks like it is going to be Fafnir, details to follow.

I am going to have to cook up something crazy for this one! If I can't win, I can at least have a little fun.

New game started, Markiss(Axis) vs Fafnir(Allies).

I have accepted Fafnir's challenge, and so I can kill some of his units and have the upper-hand in at least some part of the game, I have chosen Axis. They may only be Poles and Frenchmen, but I am going to cause some casualties before I am defeated!

Not sure why the best player wants to play the worst, but he responded first and I am a man of my word. I have a desperate plan, and I am going to go out with guns blazing, not meekly turtled around my capital.

Once more unto the breach!!!!

Markiss,

Fafnir is quite the gentleman. He will most likely still beat the pants off of you like he did me but he is enjoyable to play with.

And you have good company, me, at the bottom. And I learned a lot form my game with him. Although apparently not enough. :-)

Well, I am a little saddened to hear that Fafnir is a gentleman, as I just did something to him that was not very gentleman-like. Normally I do not use the kind of dastardly tactics that I am employing in this game, but when you are playing an unbeatable player, the gloves come off.

I am resurrecting an old strategy that hasn't been seen around here in a long, long time. I had to dust-off and delve deeply into the Book of Black Arts to come up with this one, and it is pure evil. It should at least disrupt his game-plan, if nothing else.

Looking at the repots you seem to be a master of sorcery summoning up 1200MPP for diplomacy.
But as it goes with black magic, this will fire back on the evil one sooner or later.
It was indeed in the old Battlefront days of SC that somebody tried this in one of my games.

Allied opponent wanted. Average experience 7-8 games before. A little bit rusty.

I forgot to post the game so we are well into 1941 and and German panzers are having fun in Russia but summer is about to end and that should slow things down(I hope)
NA is under allied control.

Thanks all. Rannug61 ranks Nº4 with 68.42% 19.59%. Very good player, I will do my best to unbalance him, but the odds are against me.

Game over Rannug(Allies) vs Fafnir(Axis), Axis victory Summer 1942

No attack on the US this time, so axis victory came faster. Fafnir No 1 and there is no No 2 since Sugar is "retired"

game ended: Hartmann301 (axis) vs. Gilber (Allies) Allies Victory Axis surrender 1941

Hartman was surprised by the new supply rules, it's a shame because apart from these difficulties on the new rules the game was very balanced and interesting.

Alright, the Fafnir match is in its death throes. I think I can hold out until mid-1943, which is as good as anyone else has done. I declare a moral victory! That has to count for something...doesn't it?

Next victim! As usual, I will take the first response, even if it's Sugar. After playing back-to-back-to-back games against Rannug, Ktonos and Fafnir, it can't get any worse. Bring it on! Whomever has the stones... I will play either side..

Challenge accepted. New game, El Condoro(Axis) vs Markiss(Allies).

Hopefully we can get a competitive game, it's been a while.
