I am now posting Stalingrad online. Once I hear where to place the inf. unit for the Allies, I will change the name to 'Stalingrad North , Rattenkrieg, Tournament revision'. Then once Helcat makes the matchups we can start. Sam has already assigned Dugrim as our 2 point player.

Thank you for my assignment SAC Helcat, look forward to the battle that is SN: Rattenkreig against ARTIMON!! Very Happy

Have ice skates on order for the INF in aiding in crossing the Volga and special rubber threads for the tanks so as not to damage the ice!!

A couple of heavy match-ups this round and hope we have continued success with the 2 pt games, 3-0 so far in 2 rounds for a total of 5 pts!! Laughing

Re:Online Eastern Front Tournament Thu, 17 January 2013 00:06
Just about ready for round 3. I need to know where to place the extra infantry unit for the Allies. I do have a question. It was not stated in the beginning as to what type of infantry would be used. Do you want to be able to use a special force or engineer unit, not just a regular one? I'll leave it up to the two commanders to decide. However, I do think the armor unit should be just a regular 3 figure one.


ATTENTION:

Also,there is a bug in regards to snipers and artillery. In online play you are able to target artillery with snipers. They hit on stars and grenades. I kind of like the idea. It would be like the snipers are killing off the gun crews. Again, I will leave the decision up to the 2 commanders. Whatever they decide will be carried on throughout the rest of the tournament.

I'm pretty sure that snipers can target artillery in the boardgame too.

I think win by 3 should be regular infantry, and win by 4 should be armor or special infantry.

The rule has been clarified, I would like to have a regular infantry unit on our right flank on field K1.

1 point - dig in one unit
2 points - add one badge to one unit (infantry only)
3 points - add one infantry of your choice on your baseline or as close as possible.
4 points - add one regular armor unit on or as close to baseline as possible.
5 points or more - add any unit of your choice (except mobile artillery) on or 1 hex in front of the baseline.


Erik



SAC Helcat,

No RUSSIAN infantry is a regular unit!! They have the backing of the RED ARMY and therefore are SUPER TROOPS!! A badge does not a unit make, that shall be proven in this scenario!!

As for Geoff's idea, going forward, sounds good, 3 pts INFANTRY unit, 4 pts, SPECIAL unit of choice.

Afterall, the MAN has 3 pts, how wrong could he be!!?

Question, since we won by 3 pts, could we not also take either to the 1st 2 choices, DIG IN or ADD BADGE based on pt differential, does it have to be the 3 pt choice only? Just a thought....were the above the finalized choices for the tournament?

Hmm, you might be right, Gonzalan.

I might not have thought about that very well. Nevertheless this will be the set up with which we will win. I will keep the thought in mind for the next match. But I think I will be able to choose an artillery then.

Sharpen your dies and we will roll to victory.

Good luck to all.

Re:Online Eastern Front Tournament Thu, 17 January 2013 22:16
Well, a regular infantry (3 pt) is a pretty weak sister in comparsion to a tank unit (4 pt).

If you make a 4 pt a tank or special inf of choice, I think in most cases the tank would be the no brainer selection.

So maybe the 3 pt should be at least a badged infantry of choice to give that win marign at least a bit more value.

Hypothetically speaking: For Rattenkrieg I would have not taken the tanks but an engineer unit (if you had had that choice and the 4 point win.) Razz

Yes, for this scenario the Combat Eng would be the choice. In most other scenarios, the tank would win out.

Re:Online Eastern Front Tournament Fri, 18 January 2013 02:28
Hi everyone,

Since no one has played the scenario yet, we can still all agree to make the 3 point difference a badged infantry. I'm fine with that. We have to do it now before the round starts. I just need a quick vote from everyone, especially the commanders.

I think we can all agree that you may choose a lesser advantage to use for a scenario. So, if we stay with a regular inf. for a 3 point differential, the Allies may instead opt to place an engineer badge on an existing unit.

Whatever changes we finalize will be implemented tomorrow. I know some of you will be playing Stalingrad this weekend.

Since the original 3 point description was "1 infantry of your choice", I assumed that special infantry (such as special forces, engineers, anti-tank) was implied--otherwise, where is the choice?

Oh, did I open a can of worms? Well, not my intention obviously, but we know everyone has their thinking caps on!

For this round, the choices should remain the same so that we, the ALLIES, will only have the the choices the AXIS had last round and good point JAParker!

After this round, if the SAC's agree to make a change to the choices, then they can be in place going in to the next round and both sides will know what we are getting based on point difference.

Otherwise, let the battles begin!

Yes, for this scenario the Combat Eng would be the choice. In most other scenarios, the tank would win out, as Tank commander stated.

Yes, people the better choice for the "War of the Rats", tanks can't get around well in close quarters such as towns and rubble!

If it is decided that the 3 pt does not entitle our side to an infantry of choice (just a regular infantry) I would indeed go with the "lesser" 2 pt option and upgrade an existing on board ifantry to a Combat Eng.

Re:Online Eastern Front Tournament Fri, 18 January 2013 16:04
OK,

It seems like the consensus is to have an inf. of your choice like I had stated before. So, I will place an engineer badge on that inf. unit on the baseline unless told otherwise. Let the round begin.

Also, on another thread, there is a bug where you can use anti-tank units for BEL. I can't write the scenario to try to avoid this bug so let's all 'play by the rules' and not use this unit for BEL. I've tried to write our scenarios as best I could to avoid these bugs. If anyone comes across one let me know. Sometimes the bug works in our favor. The multi hex medal objectives in Stalingrad are not in the regular scenarios and are a lot of fun. I can make 2 figure snipers and 4 figure Finnish ski troops so there are some that I can take advantage of.

There is one scenario coming up where we will use Russian paratroopers! However, American troops will do the landing but they fight the Germans just the same. By the way, the Russians did use paratroopers but it was an utter failure.

Luc and me tried to play our match tonight but there were some connection problems and Luc faded in and out of battle. we rescheduled for tomorrow evening and pray we do not have connection problems.

The match was all my way Smile
Johnny did a particularly bad Air Strike somewhere when Luc wasn't around

I played very very aggressive and raked in the medals and objectives, Johnny/Luc lost 12 to 7 so probably the tables will be turned tomorrow and Luc will do really well. Wink

See you tomorrow copain! Mad

I'm very sorry about this, but my internet connection is ok, maybe a server problem.
What about you?

Could we reschedule the battle, or you have the win by my disconnection (or what else)?

It's interesting to hear of other players' disconnection problems...

I've noticed I've been on the end of a few recently, (all within the last 2 weeks), normally I don't have any problems whatsoever, and have found the connection to be most stable. I've not changed my internet provider.
Is this a noticable problem for others too? Especially more recently? Or just a quirky set of circumstances that we're finding ourselves/opponents getting disconnected more often?

I have only lost connection once in the recent past but a few of my opponents have lost connection too. But that covers close to 100 games.

Jim and I played for nearly an hour with no problems. Hopefully,
this doesn't continue. This is a long scenario to have to reschedule. You need at least an hour of free time to play it. Hang in there.

I used to get disconnected from time to time, but luckily this hasn't happen lately. I don't think there's an issue about it, just an unfortunate coincidence. Remember that this game demands a stable and continuous connection to the servers; just a small glitch will be enough to kick a player out.

There is no land on the East bank of the Volga

The population of our country, who love and respect the Red Army, start to be discouraged in her, and lose faith in the Red Army, and many curse the Red Army for leaving our people under the yoke of the German oppressors, and itself running east.

Some stupid people at the front calm themselves with talk that we can retreat further to the east, as we have a lot of territory, a lot of ground, a lot of population and that there will always be much bread for us.

[]

Not one step back! Such should now be our main slogan.

It is necessary to defend each position, each meter of our territory, up to the last drop of blood, to cling for each plot of Soviet land and to defend it as long as possible.

Our Motherland is experiencing hard days. We must stop, and then to throw back and smash the enemy regardless of cost. The Germans are not so strong, as it seems to the panic-mongers. They strain their last forces. To withstand their impact now, means to ensure our victory in some months.

Can we withstand the impact, and then throw back the enemy to the west? Yes we can, because our factories and plants in the rear are fine and our army receives ever more and more airplanes, tanks, artillery and mortars.

Van Voort,

I didn't realize that Stalin was so eloquent. It was probably his speechwriter. It is a great quote. I'll bet you are trying to inspire the troops.


By the way, I don't know if everyone noticed that there is a Stalingrad City of Rubble and Iron scenario that can be combined with Rattenkrieg to make an Overlord battle. I have to say I've never played both together in Overlord but I think it would be pretty interesting.

Van Voort and Vercingetorix, congratulations on an unbelievable struggle! This round is producing some terrific games. Kudos to both of you. Is there any way I can see the replay? I would love to follow your game.

Two 12-11 games and one 12-10. What's in store for us next!!

Forget the equipment, where are our Vodka rations?

True story, a mortar unit commander had not reported all the men lost due to enemy action in order to still get their vodka rations. When the supply officer found out about this he cut off all the vodka rations to this unit. The unit commander turned his mortars around and shelled the supply area. The supply officer promptly reported this to a superior. Instead of issuing an arrest order for the mortar officer, he told the supply officer to send the vodka Laughing
