The score after each round will look like we are used to but with the added list of reserve units next to it. As an example I have crossed out four units, is this clear enough?

Well it looks like we are all tied for first place here, let's end that in round 1! Cool

Although the Allies roster is impressive, by mere "presence" on the board our axis team already tips us above tied status, I think, but we shall see...

All the best, comrades! Aim straight, keep your powder dry, and enjoy!

Michele (Allies) vs Kellogs_10 (Axis) 7-4 (figures: 55-34)


I was lucky enough to overwhelm this battle although I played a game without any single right flank card in hand. FYI in the right flank stand the strong françaises infantry and German Bold Tanks!

Great battle by the way.

Thanks kellog and good luck for the rest of the tournament.

JA,
I linked to Michele's user information page by clicking on his name.
Then copied his user id from the end of the url.
Then opened my career page and substituted his i.d. for mine in the url to link to his career page and was able to see the replay from there.

I assumed this was open information...

Yes, well done. I was hoping that extra tank on our right would be useful and it looks like it helped a bit.

Good, if you didn't know maybe the enemy doesn't know either!! We will keep it a secret as long as we can and surprise them with it much like we did with you!! Very Happy

And with no right flank cards....guess it was just as well you did know of its reserve status.

Buidheo (Allies) vs JJ Juggernaut (Axis) 7-3 (figures: 27-15)

At the start, the French pulled back into the woods in cover of their armour. Then there was much sniping back and forth across the water. The Allied armour moved into the woods on the right and moved up on the left. After being repaired, the German armour on their right got taken out and the infantry was forced back. The German panzers then engaged in the centre and hit hard but failed to punch a hole in the Allied line. A close assault and then follow up attack took out the remaining armour and then the last German unit was blasted trying to cross the right flank bridge.

The Germans were outshot 2:1 with averages in the high 60% for the Allies and low 60%s for the Germans, but the German armour numbers were bad. This, combined with a very tough scenario for the Germans made it an inevitable conclusion.

With the board flipped around, it was a much tighter game with move even dice. Great scenario.

Well, when you are outshot 2:1 on a map that is 75% win for the other guy, I would say the odds are stacked pretty high against you. Germans have to be pretty fortunate to win. That extra armour really helps even things.

Re:Western Front Tournament Results Sat, 05 April 2014 02:01
I am happy to report another Allied win here.

This was a tight one with the Germans getting the upper hand early. They played LEFT ASSAULT, DHQ and INF ASSAULT and also had AMBUSH. Luckily I only lost 2 units after that was over. I also bagged a panzer onmy right with a 3d attack. But I soon lost my last right infantry and trailed 1 to 3 before killing off a center Combat Eng.

The action then shifted to my left and the center and a German FIREFIGHT killed off a center tank along with a center infantry. I was in the hole by a 2 to 5 score. But I had COUNTERATTACK (FIREFIGHT) and killed a 2 fig panzer near my right and an Elite Infantry in the center. A turn later I lost a 1 fig unit on my left.

A few turns later I German BEL could have ended things but a 4d attack on a 2 fig unit within 2 hexes of my baseline only got 1 hit. I was able to pull my 1 fig unit away and shield it with my tanks which flagged a Comabt Eng out of the woods and into the open where it was hit twice. This unit then had a 1d qattack on my baseline 1 fig infantry but whiffed.

In my next turn my Sniper was finally able to shift into my left and pick off a 1 fig Elite Infantry on the German baseline and one of my tanks killed off that 2 fig Combat Eng infantry. With BARRAGE in hand (from the start) all I needed was survive the next German turn. Two panzers moved up to attack my center tank in the open but only flagged it back to the woods. My BARRAGE then ended the game by taking out a 1 fig Elite Infantry on my right. A tight battle.

17 turns 24 mins

I elim 29 figs to 21 lost.

The STATS with my numbers listed first:

SHOTS: 58 to 51

HIT PCT: INF 52 to 50 / TKS 43 to 20 / TOT 50 to 41

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=40 842083

We played the rematch and another close game ensued with my Germans being the victors.

My Germans started on the left and took out 1 infantry there. Then the battle shifted to the center and the French armor got the upper hand killing off three panzers to lead 3 to 1. But I took two tank and another infantry to lead 4 to 3. FIREFIGHT then gave me a 5 to 3 lead.

Things went back and forth in the center and I forged a 6 to 4 lead. I then lost another infantry. After a 2d attack fails to take out a 1 fig tank I lose another infantry and it is a 6 to 6 game. With the Allied tank advacing on my right I use DHQ to get into cover and setup my next card. The Allied tank whiffs on a panzer on my right and I push on my left and take out a 1 fig infantry on the Allied baseline.

28 turns 46 mins

I elim 27 figs to 27 lost.

The STATS with my numbers listed first:

SHOTS: 73 to 72

HIT PCT: INF 45 to 49 / TKS 26 to 26 / TOT 37 to 38

I'm sorry for my defeat... TC was a very strong opponent. I had the opportunity to win, but was unable to succeed... So sure I was to win that I even forgot to hide a weaken infantery, and TC didn't hesitate one bit to take advantage of it...
I shall do better next round, so please, do not execute me yet Confused

Anyway, what a match with TC ! Very Happy . Thx Eric for a really interesting map once again ! Very Happy

Good luck team Axis ! Better than our opponents that is Wink

I looked the replay and it looked like a victory in the making. Let this be a lesson of warning to you all. They are cunning these allied opponents but have no fear, in the end the Axis will prevail!

@TC
On your second card you ordered the extra armor unit, but did not move it. May I ask what was the pan there? (Or would you rather wait until the round is over before you explain your tactics?)

Just adds to our aura of unpredictability on the ALLIES side!! Just never know what we are going to do or what trap we are going to spring on the AXIS!!! Twisted Evil

And his admitting his error is a sign of STRENGTH to those of us who he leads and not a sign of WEAKNESS!! Cool

And welcome to our 2 new players VCX1302 and Goekawar.....

Jeronimon and I played this afternoon and it was another victory for the Allies 7-4. We both threw 56 dice but my hit percentages were way above average. I think without that extra armor unit he would have overrun my right flank. As it was I had 3 infantry units with 2 figures and one unit with 1 figure left at the end. With more even dice he would have won.

The return battle again saw the Allies win 7-4.

I have to apologize about this scenario. It is much too tough for the Axis. Tank Commander's utilization of an armor unit made it nearly impossible for them to win.

I don't feel an apology is neccessary, 38 percent for me on both inf and armor against 54 and 50 for Eric goes a long way to explain a 7-4 win.

Seeing my tanks vanish like snow under the sun certainly put a crimp on my tactical plan. Razz

Let's see the other games before we draw any hasty conclusions.

Go get them Axis team!

Jeronimon,

So very true, besides, I recall in the PACIFIC, the last few rounds, the ALLIES seemed to always go up early, 4-0, 4-1 to start a round and AXIS would always make it close at the end of each round, evidenced by the near final score where ALLIES will win by 4 or by 2 depending on final game outcome.

Besides, I have nothing against us being up 10-0 after one round!! Very Happy

An Axis victory!

(I'll put Axis on the left in the report hereunder)

Quit2 vs Junior72

medals 7-4 (1 exited armour unit)
figures killed 22-23

Some stats:
Dice rolled: 73 - 50 (axis managed to give more orders thanks to better cards).
Hit rate infantry: 30% - 62%
Hit rate armour: 30% - 31%

Some defining moments: and Axis ambush on the first allied turn, taking out the previously damaged infantry.
And axis armour chasing and allied armour out of the woods near the exit markers. It ended up taking out the allied armour and an exit medal.
Several misses on the axis armour: Junior had difficulties taking out the last figure on several of them.

It was a weird game against a great opponent I have met in real life already.
A dis-balance in both cards and dice, luckily in opposed directions, made it tense after all.

You may try placing your computer monitor into a dice cup before each roll next time as that may help to even things out a bit.

But seriously folks, I know the feeling - a recent game where my hit pct on armor was 28% (which does not seem that bad on the surface but there were a number of shots that were made on units with no retreat) while my opponent hit at a 52% rate - ouch!!

After this round I will let you all know why I used that tank reserve here.
