Well done SAC Helcat! Victory to end the round and carry over to the next one, 7-2 for the round and and 24-21 I believe overall, round to the AXIS, but victory keeps overall close.

An additional tank AXIS next round...

Well fought to both Hellcat and Dugrim

An exciting battle, 3-3 up untill turn 13 could have gone either way that moment. I had quite good cards, Direct from HQ, Recon in force and General advance made it possible for me to advance my troops all over the board. The dices were helpfull as well, so I was able to put pressure on Dugrim minimising some of his troops to one or two figures. I was able to take the bunkers in the centre and left flank preventing his tank to advance to the beach. A medic healed some of my infantry on the right to prepare way for the inf assault to advance to the exit. It was able to hit the Exit whilst my other troops could take out some of the remaining single infantries. 9-5

Thanks Dugrim for the game and congratulations to the Axis for their surprising but well deserved big victory.

To the Allies: We will have to lick our wounds and we have one advantage in the next round: the Axis have an extra target for us to shoot at.

Well, Jeronimon, given our respective records in this tournament so far, you probably have good reason for your confidence!

Nevertheless, as Ecclesiastes 9:11 says--


11 I have seen something else under the sun:

The race is not to the swift
or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise
or wealth to the brilliant
or favor to the learned;
but time and chance happen to them all.


The New International Version. 2011 (Ec 9:11). Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan.

So, I will just have to hope that "time and chance" turn the expected outcome of our battle upside down!

Very poor dice for Jim, failing to take out at least one of my artilleries and bad luck on his 2-Armor-Assault sequence determined a tasty victory for me tonight.
Jim went for the exit hexes with his tanks, trying to take out as many units as possible in the process. Unfortunately for him, dice were below average then, and to add up, I had very reasonable cards to respond. My own dice weren't famous, but at least they were better than his; even so, 2 units exited the board, IIRC.
One funny fact: the allied 5 units cluster in his right flank didn't move or shoot at all and my own 2 infantries in the forest opposite the cluster never shot or moved either.

Although not as balanced as it would have been ideal, dice wise, it was still a great game, on a great scenario! Thank for your good mood and sportsmanship, Jim: it's always a pleasure playing with you!

Nice battle gents, Clo adds to his total victory points, bravo! Replay seems to only make it 1/2 way, JK2010 had a hard push and great sequence on his left, TFH followed by 2 AA's, dice, especially on the TFH didn't come thru there, still exited 2 and close fight, looks exiting and hope to put up a good fight against JJ's Naut in the near future...great start for the round!

On the old American TV show "Hee-Haw," there was a song that contained the line, "If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all."

That line sums up what happened to lucky91 in our match today. His first six turns included two Move Outs, a center Infantry Assault (4 units), Probe Center, and Arty Bombard, plus Air Power. During those six turns, his ground units rolled a combined 3-for-31 against my infantry.

Meanwhile, I had started with a weak hand: Two Recon Lefts, Probe Left, Medics, and Armor Assault. However, the Russians' unthinkable start gave me time to get some better cards. On turn 16, my Armor Assault bagged two full-strength tanks and a 3-fig engineer on the Hill, bringing my lead to 9-3. In response, a Russian Armor Assault knocked off two of my armored units, including a 4-fig. But then I played a TFH that ordered four infantries, and got another armor kill. The Russians played their own TFH on their last turn, but in keeping with their unfortunate luck, they only got to order a single infantry.

I rolled 78 dice in the game, and had a 48% (11/23) hit rate against Russian armor.

Luc rolled 98 dice -- 20 more dice than me -- but 26 of them were flags, and many of those were ignored. He had a 23% (12/5) hit rate against my infantry.

Chalk up an Axis victory here. sam1812 12, lucky91 6, in 22 turns.
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=34 866923

We played a rematch, my good luck continued, and my Russians beat his Germans, 12-5.

Luc was the epitome of a good sport about his extreme misfortune in both games. He is always a challenging and dangerous opponent, and I know that would have been the case tonight if his dice had been anywhere near normal.

We may have to assign you a handicap to give your opponents a chance - perhap you may only be allowed to play a card every other turn Laughing

van Voort 12/40 v Looney Llama 10/39

Hard fought struggle in which we cleared the centre town and then cleared the axis left sending some tanks through to penetrate with a well timed Armour Assault that also killed off the elite armour on the axis right.

We then beat our way through on our own left to clinch victory

Well done V V and L L, only took us to the 3rd battle to get our 1st victory this round! Close score, 12-10, 40-39, hope the 1st of the rest of the ALLLIED victories to come.

Should fight it out with JJ's Naut tomorrow, will see what the brings our way!

Re:Results Thread for SFTF Eastern Front Tournament Fri, 08 March 2013 18:46
Kudos to van Voort on his victory. Very close game in dice and percentages. I had a horrific start as he wiped out my infantry in Belgorod without me doing any damage to his infantry. He then assaulted my left flank and again wiped out everything but my inf. in the city and the arty. I had no cards at the time to counter. I think he had me 9-3 at that time. The armor assault was critical as he wiped out 2 armor units. My right flank special force armor looked for a retreat flag to go into the woods but orders are orders and it stayed put to be wiped out. It came down to him needing 2 hits out of 3 dice on a two unit infantry unit of mine. If he would left me even one figure, I had TFH ready to play against weakened and exposed infantry for the win. Needless to say, he hit on 2 of those 3 dice.

It was a very exciting game that after a slow start where it looked like I was going to get slaughtered, I managed to make a game of it. vanVoort played extremely well and he didn't make any mistakes that I could take advantage of.

JAParker v Jeronimon

replay

We did not start of cautiously, JAParker played four units, one to the Hill and I responded with three units but being lucky with the dice snagged me an infantry on my first card. (5 hits out of 7 dice)

JAParker then Recon Air assaulted me and hit two tanks two infantry and an artillery flagging the remaining arty to the baseline.

I decided to move the one fig tank forward with some other units and followed the next turn with a armor Assault, throwing more tanks forward. And focusing on the infantries, I got four of them, some with lucky throws (one went three for three without any back-up fire possible) and that made the score 7 to 1.

JAParker then moved into Belgorod with a lonely infantry man by killing a two fig infantry of mine. And we battled some around over and of the Hill.

A TFH saw me destroying a three figure armor unit on the Hill a two figure infantry unit next to it taking out a lone tank and killing the one man in Belgorod. This gave me four points and took one away from JAParker. 11 to 2 the score.

And two Russian infantry units down to 1 figure. JAParker then finished my lonely tank (from the airstrike in card three) and shot 3 for 3 on another armor unit for two more medals bringing his total to four. I then moved all my units on the Bogodhukov flank and could have fired about 7 dice into one infantry man (even with one flag thrown in) but the first shot fired by my armor unit finished it. 12 -4

We both were somewhat surprised to see that the percentages were almost equal, it definitely felt unequal.

JAParker v Jeronimon

52% v 53% on infantry (dice 23 v 59)
32% v 33% on armor (dice 37 v 18)
40% v 48% overall (dice 62 v 77)

The dice thrown against infantry made the difference and the three objectives already held.



The rematch I started out ridiculously lucky. After card 11 I was up 9-4 (there the replays freezes, as it tends to do when you exit units). But JAParker made a wonderful come-back and snagged the victory out of my hands with an 12 to 11 endscore. A much more exciting and enjoyable game than the first.

rematch
As stated it stops when my armor unit exits.

Well done Jeronimon, 2 pt victory for the AXIS, 4-1 for the round!! Correct in the percentages being close and your dice difference thrown on his infantry made a big difference and well earned victory.

JAParker, tough loss and fought to the end, just not your night.

28-22 overall and uphill climb for the ALLLIES, still our 2 pt match out there and potential 5 pts for the ALLIES, let's go and get them!! Shocked

Re:Results Thread for SFTF Eastern Front Tournament Sun, 10 March 2013 03:36
SAC Helcat,

1 of a potential 5 pts captured tonight, Gonzalan VS JJ's Juggernaut, a 12-7 ALLIED victory, thus 4-2 for the round and 28-23 overall.

1st, the tale by the numbers:

Gonzalan VS JJ's Naut

49% v 52% Infantry, 49d v 33d
38% v 42% Armor, 26d v 43d
50% v 0% Artillery, 4d v 0d

Overal 45% v 46%, 75d v 76d


So as the number attest, close until the end...

The action started in the CENTER, strangely enough, the 1 medal in Belgorod just seems to draw one's attention there, attacking with 3 INF on the unit in town and scoring 3 hits.

JJ then broke out the 2-2-2 card on his 1st move, I distracted him by chatting him up and he didn't move his SF ARMOR up on his LEFT, but made up for it by killing my SF INF to the LEFT of Belgorod.

Action continued in the CENTER, an 0-4 effort on my part against his units in Belgorod and he returned the favor by going 1-5 on his turn.

Again, like a stubborn mule, I stay with the CENTER action and assault his 2 units once again, kill the one in town and leave the MEDAL there for his other unit to see and thus my 1st kill, 4-1 AXIS.

Thankfully, JJ has a different animal mentality than I do and takes the action to his LEFT, ALL and move and attacks, damage caused, no kills. I follow suit and stay on that flank, RECON, having gained possession of HIll 317 on turn 3 and his units that he kindly lined up on the ridge and forest and go 4-8, damage inflicted.

1 ALL was not enough, another ALL for JJ on that flank, kills my ARMOR on the hill and positions others in defensive line.

Since ALL in vogue, go with 1 of my own on that flank, my RIGHT, do a mad dance with movement, move to the hill, kill his ARMOR, move off the hill, take out is ART that was damaged with A/S, 2 kills, 5-3 AXIS.

Things continue on the flank for 3 more turns, JJ gets 2 kills to my 1 and then I return action to the CENTER, get another kill shooting from the hill and move an ARMOR unit his ridge towards Tomarovka, 7-5 AXIS at this point.

Here, the turning point of the game takes place, JJ plays an MO, attacks a 1 FIG INF and ARMOR in the CENTER, misses on both and I counter with an AA, exit the 1 FIG ARMOR, kill 2 units and take possession of Belgorod, thus 4 medals for me to his 0, 9-6 ALLIES.

From here the replay freezes, JJ plays his own AA, kills my ARMOR outside of Tomarovka, 9-7 ALLIES and damaged some other of my units, I counter his AA and move out of Belgorod, giving up a medal and moving on Bogodukhov, kill an ARMOR unit and damaging others, still 9-7 after my kill, JJ attacks with 3 units on the Bogodukhov side, hoping to wipe out my 2 ARMOR units that had moved up, attack left each with 1 FIG, I then play 2 in the CENTER, activate 3, thanks GUNG HO, move INF into Belgorod and ARMOR into Bogodukhov, 3 medals and final score of 12-7.

Well played by JJ, though stats practically even, the story for him is that he left something like 5-6 units of mine with 1 FIG and just couldn't finish me off for the victory. JJ had to go and get warm, cold in Minnesota, no rematch played!!

Makes things closer and hope the ALLIES continue to put up the points and victories..

Allies take another one -- a very close match. A barrage on Dugrim's last turn failed to kill a two figure infantry on the back row and the Russians were then able to enter the two medal town for the victory.

replay: http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=34 948950

Final score: 12-11; figures 39-45; dice 34% to 41%

Dugrim / Luca,

Close, tough loss, but not always do you lose! I found that out 1st hand the other night and in practice I have been your "whipping boy!"

They say "You can't win them all", perhaps in Italy it is different and if you are a member of "Gli Azzurri", then that is the expectation, but in M44, 50/50 at best and that is if you have the favored side!

To quote Vincent Lombardi, "E essenziale per capire che le battaglie sono principalmente vinto nei cuori degli uomini."

Good luck the rest of the way and eventually we will fight and so far you have the edge!

Geoff,

Welcome back to the win column and getting back on track!! 4-3 for the round and 28-24 overall, making it closer and hopefully the ALLIES can continue gaining momentum!!

Nice victory, though replay didn't follow through from move 14 or so, but was interesting to the the defensive line that Dugrim set up along the ridge from one end to the other, guess he was planning on you not exiting!!

Now we sit and wait the other results and the next round!

Vercingetorix vs Tank Commander
12-7

Contrary to the final score, Tank Commander started very strong with TFH and eliminated one inf unit in the center town and move one of his troops into the city. After round one : VCX 3 - TC 2

I tried to reinforce the cities by moving my Special infs into both cities (infantry assault). But only one round later, (thanks to a double flag) I again had but one inf in the center city left.

Next combat phase, Tank Commander showed my where he got his name from and send 5 tanks up the center. I countered his move by sending my armour against his, just to make his armour redraw to a comfortable distance. I actually sets his armour to have a perfect line of sight for a devastating Firefight.
By round 7 the score was VCX 4 - TC 5

In round 9, TC was able to undo all damage to 2 of his armour units, but forgot to move and attack with them. This left my 1 fig armour alive and able to turn kamikaze and thus yielding another 2 medals.

In round 19, TC did an armour assault but was unable to destroy my last remaining armour, who barely survived (1 fig). But this enabled me to launch a devastating Close assault. 9 out of 11 dice were a hit against armour. In this one turn I destroyed 2 full strenght armour units and reduced a 4fig armour to just 1 fig.

To make things worse for TC, in round 21 (last but one) he should have been able to destroy my last (2 fig) inf unit in the center town. But he survived and gave me the opportunity to finish the game.

In all fairness, luck has had a tremendous impact on this match. (Sorry TC, but luck was on my side)

Heartiest congratulations to Vercingetorix on his victory. Heartfelt sympathies to Tank Commander, who has had unfortunate luck in a couple of matches recently.

With one match remaining, we lead, 5-3, so that clinches a German victory for this round.

There is great joy in the German camp tonight! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67rc96joOz8

It's great to see a lot of very intense contested matches. With one match remaining, it's time to get your winter coats on, as we head into 1944. Look for the new scenario as soon as Artimon and Helcat finish their match.

Confounded AXIS!! Another round to the "bad guys", at least only the battle and not the war yet!!

4 more rounds in which to change things and still come out on top!!

Thanks Eric for your continued hard work and look forward to Winter once again and a change in scenery, after all, White is the color of the "good guys!"

Helcat vs Artimon

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/fr/battle/?id=34 996582

It was a quick game in only 12 turns. I had very good cards and dices at the beginning allowing me to destroy most of the Russians units in the center sector. Then, the gap was done and Helcat couldn't come back anymore.

Result : 4 medals for Helcat and 12 for me

Too much unbalanced to be really funny. Confused

The return was more closed, and Helcat won 12 vs 6 medals as axis.

I think the fact to keep alive or not the 2 advanced german infantery units in the city is one the factor key of success for Axis side. That was the case in both games, and final score is clearly in favor of germans.

See you soon Helcat on the battlefields (perhaps during the WW7 !)

So as I counted the score for the round is 6-3 which makes the overall score 30-24 in favor of the Germans.

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/30626174/jerfotodiv/uitslag%20belgorod.png


And for the history lesson we will not look back this time and, I am ashamed, not even at the eastern front:

In this picture you see the legendary PzKpfw VI Tiger. Note the rings on the gun barrel denoting the number of "kills".

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/30626174/jerfotodiv/Wittman.jpg

What's so special about this picture you might ask? Well the man on the far left of the picture is the one and only Michael Wittman (You might know him fro the shiny ribbon I got down there. Wink )


On 13 June 1944 the British 7th Armoured Division (the Desert Rats) lost at least 25 vehicles to just one Tiger. This was during the Operation Epsom, a part of the battle for Caen near the village of Villers Bocage. The Tiger was commanded by SS-Obersturmführer (Lieutenant) Michael Wittman of the Schwere (heavy) SS-Panzer Abteilung 11. Wittman was credited with no fewer than 119 tank kills (some reports say 138) during the course of his two-year career as a tank commander.

(Source: The World's Greatest Tanks / Roger Ford ISBN: 1-84013-241-8)



Rumor has it Wittman was assigned to Generaloberst Hube in february of 1944. So the Russians better beware in the next round! Twisted Evil

Excellent start for the ALLIES, V V!!! Unfortunately, just battled Clorofila and he and his AXIS troops just brought me and my ALLIES back down to Earth!!!

Clorofila will report the details at his convenience, had a date with his wife for lunch!!!

van Voort played a smart game (as usual), and the score was close. On turn 18, leading 5-4, I played an aggressive Infantry Assault on my right, which was virtually certain to win me the game with a Left card on my next turn. The only problem was, I forgot that I wasn't holding a Left card.

Thank you, clorofila, for getting our team back on track!

gonzalan 4-8 clorofila (18-23 figures)

gonzalan (Allies) Hit Rate: 49% (56% vs inf; 33% vs arm), 37 rolls.
clorofila (Axis) Hit Rate: 46% (48% vs inf, 43% vs arm), 50 rolls.

17 turns played in 36 minutes.

replay: http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=35 135163

Tony had poor cards and the dice failed him in a crucial moment, when we were fighting for the exit flank. This determined the game, I believe.
Nothing really important happened in the Kamenets Podolsky region or the center section (except that Tony grab 2 of his medals here; the other 2 were taken by exiting 1 armor and destroying an infantry). True action took place in the exit region and I was fortunate enough to have an Assault card there, plus Direct From HQ and Infantry Assault. In my pocket remained a BEL, Barrage and Medics!

I exited 3 units, killed 4 (3 of which in the exit flank; the 4th was a 1-fig armor destroyed in an Ambush, during an allied Armor Assault) and took Chortkov. Very tough scenario for the Russians if the Axis has the right cards, as my opponent said so well.

Thanks for the match and better luck next time, Tony. Also, sorry for not having time for a rematch - although we can schedule one, if you wish!

Thank you too, Sam. I'm sure the rest of the team will avenge you!!

Sam,

You hurt my feelings, where is my thanks? After all, I was the losing 1/2 to Clorofia's winning 1/2! Laughing

Yes, back on track, could have been a good opening for the ALLIES if I had lived up to V V's high standards, but since you mentioned "smart" I was doomed from the start! Very Happy

Again, up the my mates to pull me along!

Sam,

Well, now that you have cleared that up, feel better about my loss now!! Laughing

André was being too kind, not poor cards, just those I was dealt and played them as best I could, cards 1/3 of the equation, dice and strategy being the other 2/3's, dice overall were good, just not timely and might have gone about things differently, but lesson learned and hope to apply them next round!! That and I should have played it truer to form and let the AXIS try to escape and the ALLIES to prevent it!! Then maybe HISTORY might not have repeated itself!!

1-1 and 31-25, go ALLIES!!
