stjeand... I believe I sent you a PM several days ago offering to end our mirror games and either start a new set with the fresh download from Matrix, or just call it quits.
Alvaro PM'd me and had me create a testData file and send to him, and after checking it he said my game was working correctly and that it hadn't been tampered with (which I guess a savvy tech person could do). None of these games mean enough to me to not play honorably, and I have PBEM in other games where they have methods in the game to prevent any funny stuff (ATG for example), so I hope that Alvaro will see this and think about installing those type of safeguards.
As to the things that have happened in my games with the BOA, it has been going on for as long as I've been playing the game PBEM in the past month or so (after a long layoff and the change to 1.09 from my previous 1.08, where you couldn't find a sub, let alone hit it).
I have been very vocal in this forum stating that my experiences with the BOA are much different than those mentioned by many other players, both in threads I started and on others threads.
I specifically asked about that particular 6 convoy 3 escort happening. In one game I am in as the Axis now, I have about 65 points of damage to my UBoat fleet including a sunk sub while only sinking about 80 mm and a few escorts and Barbarossa has just begun. In a game I just started with the clean download of 1.09, it's turn 4 and I've sunk 11 mm and 1 escort only losing 1 point sub damage. There, as has been pointed out by at least a couple people, is a large swing of possible outcomes in the BOA.
My apologies if I seem a little raw about this, but I feel I've been saying something might be wrong with my games for several weeks, up until a day or so ago when Alvaro took a look for me. I don't even dare use one of PanzerMikes unit mods in case that did something to my previous games, using the plain vanilla units and constantly searching for my subs or tanks.
