Torbung (EP Bonus Scenarios) Sat, 13 July 2013 11:47
Hello there,

yesterday we played "Torbung", from the Equipment Pack Additional Escenarios.

We really liked the ability of calling up reinforcements, since it adds a random factor. Your strategy may have to change from one turn to another if your opponent makes a good use of the reinforcement units.

I really encourauge other players to play it, it's really a funny and challenging scenario!

Different people like different flavors of ice cream, and different people like different scenarios.

I just tried it, and found that the reinforcements created a huge amount of artillery, and I didn't care for the combination IJA vs Ghurka 2d battlebacks. Defenitely a different flavor to this scenario, and I enjoyed its creativity -- so thanks for the suggestion but it didn't do as much for me as it did for you.

By the way, I couldn't find it in the library of scenarios to post AARs.

(I had a couple of interesting battles at Operation Epsom recently. It has some interesting twists, too.)

Operation EPSOM is one of my favs scenarios so far. For the British, is a challenge trying to cross that fordable river... We have played this scenario 4/5 times in the last weeks and German has got a major rate of victories.

Please note that none of the EE Bonus scenarios are listed on the DOW site as of yet. It seems like they would have been by now and of course until they are posted no results from them can be reported.

I see you were lucky rolling STARS. However, we managed to reinforce with Infantry and Armor in both games (I can recall a sinle artillery unit) and the only presence of the Japanese units in the British baseline affected the whole gameplay.

Sorry you didn't like it.

Cheers

I have proposed using the M44 Editor many of these Operations to be included.

Hopefully there will be an update soon.
