Noooooooo, let's play on people!

I certainly enjoy these tournaments, but if you all don't I can hardy play them alone that's true. Wink

So I wish for those players who still need to pay to do it swiftly and get us back on track.

Hi everyone,

There seems to be a loss of interest in this tournament. We still have 2 games left to play in round 8. Maybe we have run out of steam for this format. I also have not heard from van voort or gheintze about the next round's lineups. Unless I hear from those with matches left to play and the commanding generals, I think I will close out this tournament. No big deal. 10 rounds may have been too many anyway. Thanks for playing.

By the way, I've written some scenarios that I have saved on vassal. These scenarios use all aspects of the rules and units and are not restricted by the online bugs. PM me if you would like to try them.

Eric


Hi Eric.

I have enjoyed playing in these and certainly hope they continue. I would suggest everyone else who still has a dedicated interest in these team tournaments show their support. I would be disappointed to see such a good thing go off the tracks.

I would be sad if your excellent tournaments would come to an end, Eric, but you are right: since the last one and in this tournament in particular, some Bumps! were in order. Usually that's a sign of format fatigue.

Your scenarios, your tournament, your time involved, so absolutely your call. But I'm not tired at all, so I wish you keep going and providing us with these great events, mate!

I'm sorry. I did not know that I was holding things up. I've been trying to schedule my match with Frostberg. We were scheduled for today, but I had a work meeting come up. I'm hoping that we can play tomorrow or Saturday.

Is it my turn to pick the line-ups for the next round.

My personal opinion is that I don't mind if they take long as I enjoy the friendship and competition.

We've been quite busy at work, so I apologize if my leadership has been lacking...

I can say that it was not easy for my oppenents to find the right time to play, because i were very busy the last months. Finished university with projects and exams, getting a new job with night shifts, moving out of my old flat, problems with internetconnection etc.. At the momemet i have more time. I am not very flexible Sad, but the time with no free time for playing m44 is over. I hope that i will play my game vs gheintze this weekend or at the beginning of the next week.

Hi Eric,

I like a lot your tournaments with your so tactic maps and the nice fellows with who we play. I like also than there's no timing, even if the last rounds were perhaps too long to maintain the intensity of the tournament at the level expected.

Count on me for the next one ! Cool

JK2010,

In the other thread, Eric mentioned that the last 2 battles will take place on the island of Okinawa, which I have been to, granted, that was in the mid '80's, but I have been there!!

Didn't mention specific titles of the scenarios, but they will be on Okinawa, so 2 more round of fun in the Pacific Front and then on from there!!

In the meantime, I most return to my quarters

Re:Pacific Theater Tournament/Overlord Scenario Wed, 12 February 2014 03:37
Attention Commanders,

Round 8 is now completed. With a stunning finish by the Japanese in the final two battles of the 7th round, we now move on to the finish. Our two remaining battles will be fought on the island of Okinawa. The first, which is up now, is 'Kakazu Ridge, Okinawa'. As soon as van Voort and Gheintze let me know where they want to place their infantry units we can then begin.

In my opinion, the final battle will favor the Japanese due to their remaining reserve infantry unit. Remember, I wrote these scenarios not taking into consideration any reserve units. van Voort could have used them up by now. He didn't. The Allies with only a 2 game lead(I think) must come out on top overall in this scenario. Anything less, spells doom. Unfortunately, this scenario, is going to be a tough nut to crack for the Allies. It will be very, very, close. Good luck.

Eric

Oh, by the way, your opponent for this round has already been posted by van Voort a few messages earlier on this thread.

JK2010,

At start of last round, Rd 7, score stood at 35-35. Like that round, ALLIES jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the round and the AXIS made a comeback once again. Looney mentioned he thought ALLIES were up 2, making it 6-4 this round and 41-39 overall. And actually think his victory was the one that gave us 6 and the slight lead heading into Rd 8.

Jeronimon will no doubt post the updates when he has time and of course give us his customary post card and history lesson as well, stay tuned!!

And try to relax and not be so tense, afterall, ALLIES up 2, I think, and well ahead!! Laughing

I have also really enjoyed these tournaments, despite my record in this one Razz And I look forward to any tournaments that will be held in the future!

Eric, your maps are brilliantly made, they are soooooo much more enjoyable to play than many of the standard scenarios, and I enjoy learning more about the history of WWII!

Also the participants are all great people and it makes it a pleasure to play with them!

Reserve armour unit.

Middle hex behind the castle

Thank you



To my commanders:

That position should allow you to commit them to either flank, or retain them in the middle to counteract enemy flame tanks

Oh esteemed and exalted commander of the Japanese, you are correct in your assumption that none of the above has battled each other in this tournament. However, you omitted to mention the AA battle: Artimon plays Antoi this coming round.

Good luck keeping your winning streak this round gonzalan, there is a "cold"-front coming your way. (nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more Wink )

Jeroen,

Will be tough for sure, but perhaps the "cold front" will lose steam having to travel all the way to Okinawa and thaw out once it reaches the jungle!

Map, as always with Looney, has battles looking on each flank and with night rule and IJA moving 2 and battling...hmmmm....should be fun no matter the outcome!

Just wanted to post an update. There is only one more battle to be fought on Kakazu Ridge. The score now stands 5-4 Allies this round. Once the last battle has been fought, we will move on to our 10th and final scenario. It's amazing that after all these rounds it may go down to the last battle in the last scenario. You guys have been great to hang in there throughout this tournament. Kudos!!

ATTENTION COMMANDERS!!


Well, we are down to our last scenario with the Allies holding a 4 game lead. Our final scenario is 'Typhoon of Steel'. This battle also took place on Okinawa. As I had said before, I had written this scenario months ago. I did not take into account reserve units. Since both sides have one infantry unit left, it looks like the Axis will get a 'free' medal. vanVoort could have used up all of his reinforcements by now, but he did not. So, it will be a little tougher for the Allies to win. The scenario is now up online for you to play.

van Voort and Gheintze, I will need the location of your infantry units before the official round begins. Also, Geoff will need to post the lineups.

I want to thank everyone for hanging in there throughout the past months. Hopefully, you all had a good time playing these scenarios.
