Re:Western Front Tournament Logistics-online? Mon, 23 June 2014 14:09
Hi Steve,

There are a couple of online tournaments ongoing.

This one (Western Front) is run by Looneyllama who designs great new scenario with combinations of rules from almost all expansions. Which means that players in this tournament have some experience.
In this tournament, two teams (Axis vs Allies) face eachother over several rounds (=scenario's). Each group has a commander in chief who decides wether or not to use reinforcements and who do the pairing of the players.

Another great tournament is run by Sam1812 over at Boardgamegeek. In that tournament groups (divisions) of 6 players do a round robin over several existing scenario's. The winner of each division goes through to the quarterfinals. Quarterfinals and beyond are knock-out rounds.
Present season will finish somewhere during the summer. Afterwards Sam usually posts a message on the online forum to tell us when and how to sign up for the next season.

There are also several French tournaments (COOL / WOLF / ...) which are run on the French Forum.

I hope this info is a bit usefull Smile

Junior72,

Don't be so discouraged about the Allies chances. Remember, you can use Recon-1 as an artillery barrage over 4 hexes(really Air Power) before full daylight. Also, if daylight comes early those 3 artillery units can do a lot of damage. The Allies will definitely win their share of games. Since I didn't take into account the reserve units when designing this scenario, the German added armor unit may be decisive. We will have to see what John has in store for the Allies.

Our Allies will take a Combat eng infantry on the baseline hex next to Mortain (between the Ranger in the woods and the arty).

ATTENTION ALL!

The reserve units have been placed and Mortain(online)is now ready to be contested. Good luck to all(especially the Allies).

I know some of you were concerned that the Axis had too much of an advantage on this (Mortain) scenario. I just checked online and the percentage is exactly 50-50! This one should be a real epic struggle. By the way, I try to make these scenarios play like the real battle but still give both sides a fair chance. In the real battle, the Allied artillery saved the day. The Germans must attack aggressively and overwhelm the Allies before being destroyed by that artillery. Recon-1 cards for the Allies and darkness lingering for the Germans will play important but not decisive roles for each side. Have fun.

Everyone,

I will be putting back online the round 4 scenario tomorrow at 10 AM EST so Buidheo and Artimon can play the final match for that round. I am putting it on earlier as I will be unavailable to put it on later. The round 5 scenario will be back up online around 8 P.M. EST.

Thanks for your patience.

I met JAParker online a few mins ago but the Rd 4 scenario was still there.

Hopefully the Rd 5 scenario will be up soon as we plan on trying again at 9pm.

Hi guys,
my wife delivered 3 days ago a beautiful boy (name's Anakin).
I'll try to stay in touch but I can't promise to be for sure ready to play.
So, if you want you can replace me with another player, or wait to find if I'll be able to play.
Whatever you want.

Thanks

Dugrim

Congrats. You can now practice on playing with one hand while having a baby on the other arm. This is ideal for during the sleepless nights.
