I Will certainly try, but probably after 21:00h. So haste needs to be made. Mad

Very Happy

I will be around on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Tuesday for Into the Cauldron.

Midnight Paris time is midday my time so I will have time all afternoon and evening to play on Wednesday (about 9 hours of game time), plus 4 hours Thursday morning my time to complete 8 matches and rematches in the following:
First Assault Wave
Gold Beach
Juno Beach
Pegasus Bridge
Pointe-du-Hoc
Sainte-Mère-Eglise
Sword Beach
Utah Beach
.

Though I have already played all except Gold Beach and Utah Beach on June 6th last year.

Good luck (but not too much) everyone and have fun.

I'm hoping I can find some free time to play a few battles, but I don't think I'll have time to play all of them! I'll look for you guys on the battle field. Cool

I'll be around on Tuesday night (US East Coast time) to play Utah and Gold Beach... (those are the only two I'm missing on the historical anniversary).

I'll try to play all the June 06th scenarios except Saint-Mère Église (played last year), from aprox. 00:00-04:00 UTC (Paris) and then later from 23:00-24:00 UTC.
Hard quest indeed, with rematches...

I have scheduled to play them all against a friend between 10:00 and 15:00 Paris time.

We also agreed not to play rematches. Since I know I'll play all 8 against him, we'll take our turns at taking the strong side.

If one player takes these sides below, the win percentages are about even over all the games together.

Pegasus Bridge : Allies
Sainte-Mère-Eglise : Axis
Juno Beach : Allies
Pointe du hoc : Axis
First Assault Wave : Allies
Sword Beach : Axis
Utah Beach : Allies
Gold Beach : Axis

Is there a particualar badge for fulfilling these eight scenarios on this day? Or is it more to do with going some way towards obtaining the long term Advanced Historian badge ...?

Either way, I'll be looking in to get a few games under way on such a special date.

You only have to play ONE side of each scenario to get the medal.

For the sake of brevity, I suggest you find a friend and alternate taking the more difficult side in each scenario. In this way, you play all the necessary games in half the time in a fair and honorable manner. This is what I intend to do if possible.

Playing the eight scenarios is key to earning Advanced Historian, since the requirement has been proven as playing the original 16 base game scenarios on their historic dates (although 15 out of 16 seems to work). I haven't gotten any of these in yet so I'll be looking to play all 8 too. I'm in California so 6/6 starts on Tuesday at 3pm for me.

If anyone is confused as to all the times being mentioned out there, a reminder that the official game clock runs on Paris time, so your invasion time may vary!

Hi all,

Of course I'll be there tomorrow (it's already the 5th today)

If your sole purpose for this day is working towards Advanced Historian bear in mind that both Gold and Utah do NOT count

So it's 6 maps really.

Advanced Historian is there.

I am working on winning everything on both sides as I suspect that might be an achivement later if it is not now

Of course no one has OLD MAN yet either...
