No worries. Thanks for the clarification.
I see, so a special case like Gibraltar and Malta. I'm not sure, as it stands now it does take quite an effort to take but it can be hammered from multiple sides and doesn't fit the island or isolated hex criteria. I'm just worried that one could then argue that any unit that is in basic supply should have it's unit supply level reduced by 1 per turn, maybe to a minimum value of 1. Where 1 is truly basic needs and all it's penalties that come with that supply level. I think almost every invasion would stall.

You know the rules so much better than me I trust you . As you said it could fairly easily be hammered down. German losses not very high anyway as there was no AA in the city.

May 21 1943

Not much happening in this game. I am waiting for a "Last Hurrah!" from the Allies. Not sure if there will be any this summer but if not I really dont think that the Allies can take out both Germany and Italy in just 1,5 summers.

Might have been better to attack the soviets but I cant really be bothered. Also more interesting to see what the allies can do in a situation like this. Might be a good lesson for all of us. If the allies win from this position then we all should play on no matter what the circumstances but if they fail miserably well then people will know when they might just as well give up. Will be interesting to see. I think it will be very difficult. German economy at 530 I have 500 on reinforcement to upgrade stuff to 1944 tech. After that I will embark on a huge AA build program. My manpower for the moment goes up is at 89%. Most axis minors built out Italy got 230 force size limit left. Axis combined got more than 2000 oil stored.

I take Malta just because I wanted to do something

Game ended

August 1943 and we both agreed that an allied comeback is not very likely and I had no interest in pushing around my units really so we decided to end it.

Thanks for a great game. ComadrejaKorp is a very nice person to play against we chat all the time. Also very aggressive and creative. I thought I did really badly. Big losses in France, Barbarossa not working very well at all, losing Finland immediately, crazy .

But then the Kiev pocket happened had the Soviets retreated one turn earlier I think the outcome would have been completely different. But after that it became some kind of snowballing effect. As soon as the Soviet army goes under like 1800 strength and start to run out of units a little bit they tend to be in trouble. Then it gets easy for the Axis to surround or shatter 1 unit or more per turn and then sooner or later the Soviets run out of units.

And once the Soviets cant mount much of an resistance I dont see any comeback for the alles. The Germans just grow to a monster in the end. With no losses in the east manpower at 90-100% whole army at 2200 all max upgraded. Not easy for the allies to do anything.

Again thanks for a nice game!

Thank you MM for this fantastic Aar that tells how you killed me (:

The game started badly for me, I had to sacrifice many troops to delay the fall of France but I managed to damage the Axis and its U-boats, so I thought that the Russians could contain them.

But MM is tactically very good, he easily overcame my Soviet defense, and he caught the best of my troops in a pocket, this was really the end of the story.

The best player has won, congratulations!

Thank you, I really feel that you played better up to that Kiev pocket turn. So I dont really feel like I am all that much a better player but thank you. Very nice game!
