ELO game completed:

firsteds (allies) defeated mcaughey (axis)

Old fashioned slugfest without a single diplo chit by either side. Some nice action in the Pacific for once. Axis resigned shortly after Munich fell to Russian paratroops, with Berlin under threat. Thanks for a great game!

Forgot it was necessary to report beginning of game.

Very fast Game DmitryN Allies MattShadowlord Axis.
MattShadowlord resigned october 1940. Chinese troops took half Chinese cities including Nanjing killing about 10 Japanese units including 2 HQ. Axis also had no progress in France loosing tanks etc. Doubt they could take Paris during 1941.

Two more games began recently:
DmitryN Axis with KlasE Allies
And
DmitryN Axis with pwurtzburger Allies



Game Ended:

KlasE (Allies) defeats DmitryN (Axis)

Axis surrender May 1942.

Allies resigned in September 1940. Not entirely sure why. My worst Poland campaign ever - Poles held out until November 1939.

Allies surrender in Sep '40.

What a ****show. Was completely hopless from turn 1 and did not get better. Axis took Paris almost in '39, and where at the doors of Chunking basically at no cost mid '40.

Played some stupid attack on Norway which was fun, but probably better once the Luftwaffe is occupide at some other place and not directly after French surrender.

No idea how to fix this. My units just seemed weaker then in all other rounds I played before.

Oh yes. That was the worst luck on Polish surrender! And then again against the Dutch, where two units decided that they dont need a capital to kick Hitlers but. Still all this bad luck could not make up for genreal incompetence in Allied leadership!

I think I will play some games with other rookies before challenging you again. Thanks for the game!! :D

[LOSS] ElvisJJonesRambo (ThundarLizard2 = Axis) ---> Tight game, Moscow falls as Allies entered Germany. Allies surrender December 1944. Won't be able to gain ground. Those 3000 MMPs and tech advantage no point going forward. Invasion fleet towards Japan worthless and stale in Burma. Chinese survived, but went nowhere also.

ALSO: We have started a rematch (with soft build limits for variety), so the new ELO game is:

firsteds (Allies) v caesarmatty (Axis)

I have never played with soft build limits so it should be interesting. Any tips out there?

Both pretty new players so should be interesting...


Game ended:

redrum68 (allies) defeats comradepanda (axis) in Dec 1941.

Germans struggled to capture Paris which held into 1941. This delayed Barbarossa to the point where the Soviets declared war on Germany and marched to within 4 hexes of Berlin.

GG comradepanda!

[ENDED]

ElvisJJonesRambo (Axis) surrenders to Taifun (Allies: Was a heavy underdog against one the world's premiere players who specializes is whole slew of strategies.

Wanted to give this guy a good fight, so no clowning for me. Japanese played it straight up. Was grinding well against China, bought 2-Artillery pieces & went the Fighter training route. Was well situated for any Air Battles. Gave limited help against Russia, by capturing Eastern portions of Red land, but not to the North. IJN was intact, with some battles near India/Burma. There was no Pearl Harbor, was keeping my Flat Tops at 110% readiness. Had Fighter near level 4 and LR-4.

Gerry also played it straight up. Didn't goto North Africa, it's not my cup of tea, I lose alot of games in the Sands. Italy also rolled it back, had INF-2/AA-2. Double Armies in Sicily. Italy actually was given 2 Corps by Hitler, I get tired of losing them by the Swarm Morale trick. But this cost me, no Greece, which Taifun used Diplomacy. In late 1942, the British from the Sands were pecking their way North to Sofia soon.

Royal Navy got tricky, it's Taifun, so that's to be expected. This guy bashed the fleet past Denmark. I was able to dodge that mess for the most part, but it did distract me. Royal Navy also got cute near Australia & surprise. attack New Guinea. I was able to pick-off a Carrier/Cruiser/Destroyer.

Was happy enough starting Barby in March/April 1941. Reds had Fort all across Dneipper. Was a grind, but able to cross. Did cost me MMPs. The game was really lost at Smolensk. Got my ass kicked in August/September 1941 turns. Gonna bitch about the weather, because I was fine in August 1941. Then came early Rain/Mud. Moved up to his Forts twice, and the weather switched. Got kicked in the teeth. Lost 4 units. This was the different. Gonna double-bitch about weather, 8-months of notta. No offensive possible. Made the mistake of still moving forward, only to get smacked at Army Group Center & South. If I had to do it over, I won't be moving closer in bad weather. One turn of good weather by Reds, all it takes to get punched. Momentum lost, never to be regained.

With the Reds in charge in the East, nothing else matters. Surrender. Berlin would have fallen in June/July 1943.

Many thanks ElvisJJonesRambo for your time and this intense very enjoyable game.
You did a great job in China during 1942 and was thinking that I was going to lose the Capital... but was able to hold periously my third line of defense along the great river south of Chungking until the last turn Feb 1943. The fact that the French did not surrender until August 1940 was important as I thought that this would delay Barbarossa. But I was wrong and you boldly attacked during April. As you mentioned this game was decided around Smolensk and Kharkov during fall-spring 1942. The Russians were getting around 900 MPPs per turn (Not a single MPP was lost in the USSR convoy lanes) and soon they were an unstoppable force pushing towards the West. I did really liked your defense of the Balkans and the Western Front, were the Allies were not able to advance beyond the small beachheads...

All told, the Allied strategic bombers level 4 were also decisive, lowering the German income to around 390 MPPs per turn, the Luftwaffe nowhere to be seen in Europe.

Yeah, I did my bullsh-t move of sending 3 Uboats to the Pacific, to join the Singapore group & closed port in South Africa. Too little & too late to help. Not a good move against Top Talent.
In China, I usually do good. I may have taken more earlier, but was doing the Pak-ho training. I had 3 or 4 fighters all Elite, ready to go. It's more ready for a nice carrier battle. Fighter's with 3-star and couple 1-stars. Jap(anese) were geared up. Against Top Talent, probably not the way to go.

I get obsessed with the training. Love having Ships 1-star, Carriers couple 2-stars and rest 1-star with those Aces on Mainland China. Agree, Uboats gotta do something more risky.

Also, I probably should not have moved over few Luftwaffe units to Riga. Key turn was lost chasing Royal Navy which wasn't must of a threat, only surface ships. I needed to toss the all, despite losses at Army Group Center's key road on Smolensk.

Good game, we will battle in the future. I liked your Dneipper setup, may need to start using it.

Looking to get back into the ELO games after illness. so prefer a player with a rating around 1000.

Not ready for elite players looking to came back gradually, can usually play 1 or 2 turns per day depending on the time zone (I am in the UK) and work load.

Will play either side. Usual house rules.

Pm me the password.

ELO game ended.

ElvisJJonesRambo (Allies) lost to ThisEndUp (Axis) --- Impossible to win when Germans have Panzers +3 due to Spying Intelligence +3. The Russians are 1.5 levels behind in tech. Super Panzers cut through anything. I've lost my last 3 to 4 games to it.

Need more house rules, no more Spying & Intelligence tech. Game is over on it. I had a thread on it couple of times. Hamburger Meat and many win based on Tech.
