Won against GoekaWar

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/career/?id=39 344

The start was though for me, with a very bad hit rate (but good cards).
Then everything changed against my opponent.

At the end we had almost the same stats.


Dugrim - GoekaWar
8 - 4

Dice
79 - 70
% hit
38 - 37

Infantry
48-42% -- 43-35%
Armor
31-32% -- 25-40%
Artillery
0-0% -- 2-50%

Well, it looks like GoekaWar was KIA. Does anyone know of someone who would like to take over his troops?

Re:Western Front Tournament Results Mon, 30 June 2014 21:24
Eric, I might have backup.

Bit first another Axis victory to report!

Jaykay2010 and myself got together for our match this evening. I am happy to report a 8-4 score.

Replay

I think I had a bit better cards than Jim, but the deciding factor was my ammo. I kept throwing tanks and grenades. This allowed me to miss on infantry but hit on his three armor units fairly easily. Some assault cards (left and centre and armor) helped also to advance aggressively in the middle. Holding back just a little.

When the score reached 6-4 Jim tried to stop my onslaught with an Artillery Bombard, but did not manage to kill the special forces marching on the Abbey (l'Abbaye Blanche). My two brave soldiers killed the lonely allied one defending it and took the white Abbey for the last medal.


great fun playing Jim as always, but it could have been tighter without the difference in percentages on the armor 40% v 28% only slightly made up for by the infantry percentage of 42% v 50% for Jim. But even with fairer dice the perfect German tactics would have prevailed, of course Wink


No Alied win so far seems pretty nice for us Germans. But be vigilant remaining Axis heroes, for this is not a walk in the park!

Ah, sorry to hear of one of our own going his separate way....between the "no fun" aspect for him and of course the pressure of watching the ORANGE in the World Cup....too much for him!!

Some of us others aren't exactly lighting it up either, 1-4 for me and a whipping last game, but still fun for me and sure we will see Goekawar resurface elsewhere and ready to compete once again!!

As for Jeronimon and his replacement....remember he is the AXIS Leader! Lol!

Re:Western Front Tournament Results Sun, 06 July 2014 01:31
OK, done.

Round 4 Artimon (Axis) vs Buidheo (Allies)

Axis 10 Allies 3
28 figs to 18 figs

What can I say?

With 4 cards, Sebastien had:
2 X TFH
2 X DHQ
4-5 assaults
2 attacks
inf assault
arty bombard (where he moved his gun up to kill my wounded)
oh, and a probe. 1.
Me? I think I had an attack once. Oh, twice. The second was a heart attack after he pulled out the second TFH almost back to back.

His dice were over average, same as mine or a little better. Unfortunately, a good scenario by Eric was chewed up in the absurd card distribution.

On the backside, my Germans hit at a 2:1 ratio (29 and 20% for him, 61% and 43% for me). So he only got one medal.

Two tragically lopsided games, and after all this wait, a sad way to end it.

We need to be able to throw in hands and get new ones and have 3 mulligan rolls per game. This would really go a long way to having fewer trashed games due to luck. But, this will never happen. I think I have enough data points to discuss this with Richard Borg at GENCON, but the result will only be a what if discussion.

Anyway, it is nice to play smart people on interesting maps made by nice guys. Thanks to Eric. Sorry the game let us down on this one.

Re:Western Front Tournament Results Sun, 06 July 2014 02:32
Ah...yes....the round has ended and thus the AXIS creep closer and off to a 3-0 start in this 5th round and things should be closer not if not tied...I know it was 19-14 going into the 4th round....think the AXIS might have finished either 6-5 or 7-4 and with the 3-0 of the 5th...maybe even ahead.

Will have to get back in the saddle once more and get a better result this round. A 10-3, 10-4 and 10-3 loss last round, Myself, Tank Commander and Buidheo....can only get better in this 5th round!! And it did, though Buidheo lost 8-7 to open up the 5th round, so hope for the rest of us!!

Let us forge ahead once again ALLIES!!

So time for the scores. Smile

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30626174/M44%20Stuff/Westouround4.png

The Axis slowly catching up with the Allies. And two players still unbeaten:
Lucky91 and Vercingetorix1302.


This round we won with only one point difference, but it gets us to the next round.
Just like the Germans that are battling it out on another field.
So I thought a more current photo would be appropriate. Cool

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30626174/M44%20Stuff/german_berlin595.jpg



It is of course a little sad that although the players in the LooneyLlama's SFTF Western Front Tournament represent a lot of countries only one nationality is left playing in the WC. Very Happy

Welcome to you bartjuh. You have chosen the wrong side Twisted Evil


Indeed, well predicted Kellogs. An other win for the Axis side at Mortain.

Gonzalan (Allied) vs Artimon (Axis) : 4 medals vs 8 medals / 27 figs vs 24 figs / 71 dices vs 68 / 38% vs 35%

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/fr/battle/?id=42 202634

A strong assault in the center by the Panzer divisions have disturbed the American défenses. Battle was furious and close, concentrated on the center, but German units have survived to some dices than GIs havn't.
Then, A BEL allowing an exit and the taken of Mortain free of troop gave me the victory.

The rematch was more exciting with a nice assault on the right german side, but not enough to open the lines of Americans. Then, a long and close batte with a continuous fire from the defenders (97 dices against 58 for germans Shocked )giving them the final victory.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/fr/battle/?id=42 203105

A great moment shared with Gonzalan who was a gentleman even if the dices were not with him.
Again a funny and tactic map. Thank you Eric !

Very true and I certainly didn't do or have done my part to sharpen the stick and/or blunt any attacks! Laughing

Both well played by Artimon and in the 1st, difficult to repel his repeated attacks in the CENTER with his endless supply of cards especially agains his ARMOR...I missed some that might have slowed him down...good use of BEL for him....I left MORTAIN to help with a kill and then decided to sightsee and lost sight of the name of the SCENARIO and never got back to defend its NAMESAKE! Surprised And he made me pay for it and sure it was sweet for him to grab the VICTORY by taking MORTAIN!!

As for the 2nd...the 97-58 dice difference tells the STORY...though I was getting shot at....didn't seem like that much of a dice difference, guess I must have blinked and missed when he was shooting at me! Shocked

Well done by the traveling Frenchman and well earned on both wins. All tied up and now the ALLIES will win the remaining 6 and put the AXIS right back where they were!!

As for BARTJUH...he will no doubt come on and win his 5 matches and help the CORRECT side win the day!!

As for me, I will try to get a win here and there and just get in the way enough!!

Re:Western Front Tournament Results Wed, 09 July 2014 04:09
I am pleased to annouce an Allied win.

My forces defeated the Germans 8 (32) to 2 (19). Most of the battle was fought in the center and both sides had gosh awful dice in the midgame. But my left forces proved to be the difference by wiping out two panzers on my last turn.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=42 220604

We played a return game and the German lost again, this time by a 6 (25) to 8 (31) score. Daylight came sooner and a midgame Recon Air Strike followed by ARTY BOMBARD proved to be the difference. This was followed by a whiff on a 1 fig tank with no retreat and that US tank then turned around and killed off two panzers. I then had a failed AMBUSH and lost infantry on my left and right helped by two Allied ASSAULTs (one of each flank). Meanwhile my cards had dried up with 4 lefts (where I only had a 2 fig infantry left and a RIGHT RECON. BARRAGE ended things with a kill on that 2 fig left infantry of mine. The Allied right proved to be my downfall with 6 of my 8 losses coming in that area.

Mortain (online)
southoftheborder (axis) 2-8 clorofila (allies)

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=42 344820

Match stats: southoftheborder 11 figures won, 37 dice rolled, 30% hit rate. clorofila 35 figures won, 69 dice, 51% hit rate.

Too bad to be told, luck was very, very far from William tonight; some mistakes made it a lot worse. Hope you'll come back soon in your good old shape, mate - you have been away for too long!

Anton and I slugged it out this afternoon(my time) and I was lucky enough to prevail 8-5. Daylight came very early and good dice enabled me to prevail. Infantry hit rates were slightly in Anton's favor 51% Allies and 56% Axis but armor hit rates were 46% to 18%. He missed repeatedly on my 2 armor units on the right which enabled them to attack weakened units during the last 2 turns. He was poised on my left flank to overwhelm what was left there. One more turn for him and the outcome would have been different.

It was a great match, Thanks Eric. The fast ending of the night made things difficult, but not impossible. unfortunately my first attacks went disastrous and I needed to reorganize. After I got some good cards and got some medals it was too late.

On to the next round! Cool

Congrats Dugrim ! Very Happy May the force be with little Anakin Smile

It is another Axis victory !
gheintze vs Droopy007 : 1 med, 15 fig - 8 med, 22 fig

Geoff didn't have much luck, low hit rate on inf, and no recon. On the contrary, I began with a great hand for the strategy I hoped to be able to use (all right for the objective medal) ,and good dice.

That explain the big score. Geoff deserved better here. Thanks for the game Smile

Good luck for the last match !

MicheleCannone has not posted on the forum since 13th of june and is MIA in the league also.

JJ's Juggernaut have you been successful in contacting him?

If he has not been successful in contacting him, we will move on to the next round. If at the end of the tournament we need to play this match to determine a winner, you and tank commander will play the match to determine the championship.

Now, it looks like we may need another player for the rest of the tournament. Any ideas on how to proceed?

Well, if Michele Cannone (from the Allies) is MIA, and Dugrim (from the Axis) wants to take a break to devote himself to his family, one option would be just to proceed with 10 players on each side.

I doubt you will have luck there. He has not replied to any BGG messages either (having played only Rd 1 there).

Probably best to move on at this point.
