I guess you won't put references from previous games ahahahahah



Quitting.

Complaining for everything.

Not respecting HRs.

Trying to profit from an inexperienced and trustgiving enemy in settling HRs at the beginning.

Poor gameplay.



EDIT: I have a whole forum, the Italian one, where to find people able to confirm and subscribe what written above.
And also a detailed day-by-day AAR plenty of screens.

@ITAK: too bad, sorry for the bad experience. Hopefully you will find a trustworthy opponent. There are quite a few....

Could you provide the url for the relevant Italian forum and thread.

Of course, Alfred.

Here is the general AAR link: http://www.netwargamingitalia.net/forum/threads/aar-tutti-i-vivi-allassalto-linus-j-vs-longstreet-a.30646/


This is his AAR: http://www.netwargamingitalia.net/forum/threads/dear-prudence-ii-linus-j-vs-long-a.30650/
In post #49 he even admits, minimising, that he has brought Chinese in Burma witout paying PPs.


I guess you do not know italian (google translate makes miracles though )




Just for the sake of clarification, here few things which happened:

- No HRs wanted over night bombing "because I've never done it and I don't do it". Every single night B17 even at 0% moonlight at 7k ft bombing my harbors.

- Chinese brought to Burma without paying PPs. When I realise that, I unilaterally say that then also Kwantung Army can move to China without paying PPs. I move 2k AV into China from Kwantung. We then agree not to use the units there without paying PPs. I start paying for my guys from Kwantung when I do realise that his Chinese were with "grey" HQ and he lied about being in the process of regularising their HQs (since it's impossible).

- He protested and wanted re-dos for things I discovered after weren't "bug" but his incompetency. For example, the whole mechanic of encircling land units wasn't clear 100% to me and I trusted him when he said he was victim of a bug and made his 90k chinese I para-encircled free. Same goes with air units in "ground attack" in hexes where there are no units and being readdressed against hexes where there are units. It's a game mechanic, not a bug.
I simply asked on the forum after a while and realised that there were no bugs at all in the situations above, just the willingness of the adversary to misinterpret the manual and exploit the fact I was at my first game.

- Continuous accusations of not paying PPs for units in China willing to share screens continuosly. For free intelligence I realised soon.


And I can continue for long.


Against me it can be said that it was at my first game in WITPAE (not even a scenario vs AI) and my first game in absolute in a wargame (if you do not consider Risiko a wargame... ) so I have been quite naive in giving trust to the adversary over several stuff since my first committment was to a pleasant and interesting experience. I should have taken for granted the fact that people are willing to lie and do whatever trick. Personally, I find this approach counterproductive and, honestly, it hurts a lot a community which is already quite small. Thanks god not every person I met in witpae matches corresponds to this description or I would have left long time ago.



Also played a game as Allied against a player called Pickett, who, in theory, should be his son. I personally think they're the same person.
Here the AAR of that (ended after 2 weeks becase "Dutch bombers on oilfields are gamey" and stuff like that): http://www.netwargamingitalia.net/forum/threads/aar-pacific-bunga-bunga.30917/
Please note that this second AAR contains several games merged together in a single AAR. The first part is the one I am talking about.
From Page #17 onwards, for example, it is about my current PBEM as Jap.
I know it's messy to put several AARs in the same thread but I thought at it as, in line of principle, my "secondary AAR" with whatver second match I am doing.

Then there is my "primary" AAR of the long-term game I am doing (currntly paused for personal reasons) in which it is clear, such as in the others, that I do no violate HRs and things like that: http://www.netwargamingitalia.net/forum/threads/aar-%C3%80-la-guerre-comme-%C3%A0-la-guerre-linus-j-vs-ste_peterpan-a.30732/


These 2 AARs are day-to-day. The first one against Longstrett hasn't been because, simply, it was my first AAR. I have been wrong in stating it was day-by-day: there are few days missing and, especially, the formatting is not like the others which are much easier to track. Still, it's almost day-by-day.

As mentioned in my last post, I can also provide references confirming and subscribing my statements.


EDIT: I forgot to mention the fact that, as evident above, I have kept playing with the community's members. He deleted his account one week after he surrendered. Here the link to that (see post #104): http://www.netwargamingitalia.net/forum/threads/richiesta-cancellazione-proprio-account.6981/page-6#post-471939

To further back what I do mean, here are two random screens. I started digging in few old mails and their attachments to find this CR. There are many more with other units.

And also a proof of the fact I suspect that he and Pickett are the same person:

And here, in case nobody wants to use google translate for my links and not even check the 54th Chinese Div status (ehi, nevermind, I'd do the same ):









Sorry for image sizes, but I'm still crappy with this forum. And also for the "spam-like" posting in the last two posts; I start thinking I'm just incredibly dumb: I cannot find a way to put two images in the same post.

Anyway, I hope my whole messy posting in the last three entries has clarified what I meant and it's enough to back my statements.

Wait what? I've never played against you and I'm certainly not Longstreet

Sure.

A person with a grand total of 6 messages in the forum over years, casually spots precisely the post in which he's named. What a coincidence. World is so small.

Leaving the field of coincidences, here is your PM sent on this forum for the first turn.

For those who cannot speak Italian, "turno inviato" means "turn sent". Google can verify that as usual.



Here the link to my AAR previously mentioned in the post in which I describe 7-DEC (post #18): http://www.netwargamingitalia.net/forum/threads/aar-pacific-bunga-bunga.30917/

Look at the two dates. 17th of September both. Just to be 300% sure we're talking about the same thing.



On a side note. When you surrendered after little time you loaded in the dropbox a file called "arresa". I perfectly understand that your education level is quite low, but the word is "resa" and not "arresa". Here a confirmation from the most esteemed Italian dictionary: http://www.treccani.it/vocabolario/ricerca/arresa/




For the wonderful community of this forum
I am specifically insistent on this topic because I think some people simply hurt the community as a whole, taking away the pleasure of playing to many. And/or making beginners run away.
Most of these things go unnoticed, but I am willing to do what I can to prevent the spread of such behaviours.

Dude, I'm a good person so I invite you to stop these slanders. I don't know who you are or what you have against this guy but I advise you to avoid spreading sentences at random. I'm not the Pickett you mentioned and that's why I made a joke.
You would be a fantastic investigator if you can connect the fact that I have only written 6 messages since I created this account.
I wanted to play down the tones of this thread but apparently you want to attack anyone so, again I advise you to avoid accusing me or I'll contact the admin.

As far as I am concerned, you can contact even Santa Claus.


The Admin will confirm you that on this forum is impossible to be registered with same name as an existing user. And he or she, having access to private messages, would be able to easily confirm that the message I posted above and other come from your account.


Eventually, Santa Claus is a better option
