Can't you just stay in and add goekawar as well? Or does that make too many players?


Wim,

With Goekawar and Looney both in, would be 11 on each side, this a substitute on each side.

I would have no issue with this and would be willing to give up some of my matches to let them experience the tournament and scenarios.

Right now, unless I hear otherwise we now have 22 players in the tournament. VCX1302 and Goekawar are the additions. I put VCX on the Axis side and Goekawar will be on the Allies to keep things moving. They will both play each other in the first round.

VCX and Goekawar, please confirm that you have read this message and are in the tournament. Post your confirmation here. Thanks.

We will welcome the second Belgian player to our team, and wish the third dutch player much succes in the opposing team.

Adding a dutch speaker to your team evens the odds out considerably language wise. Smile
If one of your team learns Lebanese, you will have matched our skills. Wink

Welcome to our noble and needy cause VCX! You may be the vital drop that spills our bucket of victory all over the Allies, the straw that breaks their back, the butterfly effect that changes the course of history...

if so or if not, welcome! Good to have you on our side!

Great job commanders. That round went by very quickly. The next battle and ONLY beach scenario is Operation Chariot/St. Nazaire Raid. It was considered 'The Greatest Raid of All' for the British commandos. With the new D-Day maps coming out this June I didn't want to overdo it. I did have a scenario from D-Day but we are not going to use it. Operation Chariot will be posted tomorrow.

Tank Commander you will now make the line-ups.

Gentlemen,

Operation Chariot/St. Nazaire Raid is now online. Tank Commander and Jeronimon will now let me know if they want to use any reserve units. Remember, these scenarios were written NOT taking into account any reserve units. Obviously the reserve unit may alter the outcomes dramatically.

Re:Western Front Tournament Logistics Tue, 15 April 2014 22:56
Hello everybody,

I am pondering over the reserve unit but will decide within 24 hours.

A remark and question about the choice infantries:
remark: Eric, could you update the first post here with the choice infantries. Some of my men still though there were two normal infantries on the reserve list.

Question: the choice infantries, what can they be:
Regular infantry
Engineers
special forces
sniper
ski troops
anti tank gun (The online version that is the early war version, no moving and shooting)

These are not implemented online line yet, so I think not, but if they are:
mortar
Machine gun
Brandenburgers
Cavalry

And since I saw the french resistance run around and encountered stiff upper lip today Smile
Italians?
Japanese hired guns? (this is a stretch I confess, but they could be over here to advise the Germans, no? Laughing )

I will await your answer great tournament director! Razz

Re:Western Front Tournament Logistics Wed, 16 April 2014 00:36
Yeah, thanks Jero, for confirming that. I looked at the first post again and thought the use of choice infantry in the stats table was weird, but I just went back to Eric's further update and see it says your choice. So, it would be good to know what is available. Wouldn't it be fun to throw a banzai shock unit in there! Twisted Evil

or some ski troops to ride those dunes! Cool
or Finnish water ski troops to skim out through the estuary and attack the water bound enemy! Shocked

Jeroen,

The choices for the 4 infantry units are 2 special force infantry AND 2 infantry of your choice. The only units that work online are engineers, Finnish ski troops(they would be 3 figures not 4), early war anti-tank, and sniper(1 figure) for the Germans. The Allies could use a French Resistance unit(3figures) if they wanted. Nothing else works at this time.

The Axis forces will not use a reserve unit this round.

We will crush the opposition without it. Mad

Let the games begin!

Beware the scenario will shortly be replaced by another to allow Antoi and Frostberg to play the last match of the Pacific tournament.

Happy hunting gentlemen!

Re:Western Front Tournament Logistics Wed, 07 May 2014 07:49
Hi everybody, I am back from my short holiday. That's the good news Smile

I even managed to tan a little in the Uk of all places. We had some nice sunshine. Cool
Visited Legoland Windsor, Chessington Park and the biggest themepak of Wales: Oakwood! And after that a small week with family in a cabin somewhere.

So the score stands at 4-4 this round and three matches remaining:
Jaykay v VCX1302
MIchelle v IGH (Michelle probably just back from the states, how was it?)
Gheintze v Myself

I have PM-d Geoff, but my time window the coming two week is extremely limited also. Geoff and I will try to get together somewhere these weeks, but if that does not work I will be available the weekend of the 17th.

If ours is the last match to be played we will move on to the next round, making match-ups will be no problem. (I will have internet acces (tablet and phone) but limited acces to a computer that can play M44, Come on Dow produce M44 for iPad in the next 24 h Smile )

Any delay this round between me and Geoff, Geoof is not to blame. This is totally due to my schedule at the beginning of the themepark season. New parks and coasters have to be visited. I am just a junky. Embarassed Very Happy

But round 2 is finished now so Eric can post the next scenario. I can look at it tomorrow, I can post the match ups and we can decide over the weekend if we want a reserve unit.

Time to move on and teach those allies a lesson gents! Wink

Re:Western Front Tournament Logistics Fri, 09 May 2014 05:15
We now move on to round 3. Very close after 22 matches with the score 12-10 Allies.

As I said before, there will be no other beach landing scenarios. With the new mega board D-Day maps coming up soon I felt it was hopeless to compete with them here. So, we now move on to June 13th, 1944. The Allies have just taken Carentan on the 12th and the Germans realize that it is critical to recapture it to use as a base to counterattack the Allied beachheads. The Allies did not have enough time to dig in so the town is up for grabs. In the mists of early morning the American paratroopers can hear the rumble of Panzers approaching the town...

Jeroen and John will look it over and decide if they want to use any reserve units and Jeroen will make the matchups.

The scenario is Counterattack at Carentan(online). This scenario is based on an Overlord scenario of mine of the same name. Check it out on the Scenarios From the Front page.

You can still use a reserve unit. You can place it on the 2nd row since there is no baseline hex to use.
