Re:Results for Pacific Online Tournamnet Wed, 29 January 2014 18:24
Just an update. I think we have 2 more battles for round 8. I was just curious if they have been scheduled yet. Since we are so close to completing this round, maybe Gheintze and van Voort can get the lineups ready for round 9. It's van Voort's turn to set them. As soon as we complete this round I'll post the next scenario and both of you can decide where to place your infantry. You each have 2 infantry left. That allows you to place 1 in each of the final 2 scenarios.

van Voort 8/30 v 5/21 Antoi

Killed his tanks on the right and a big infantry battle developed over the hills.

He moved his scecond tanks into support and these were wiped out by a charging one unit figure

Battle then shifted to the left with neither side committing units into the phosphate plant

Armour charged right to the base line but was destroyed by our reserve infantry and artillery firing at close range

Looks like your turning Japanese, and allowing your honorable opponent to save face. Database seems to say it was 8-4.

The battle between Antoi and van Voort was 8-4. I don't know why but it showed 2 sniper kills on the medal track. That makes it confusing. Just another bug to overcome.

And the Results are in, after four rounds of even-steven the Allies creep ahead with two ponts the score going into the final battles is: 39-41 Axis-Allies.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30626174/M44%20Stuff/R8Angaur.png

Seven people batting above the average of 4-4, 4 of them 5-3: Buidheo, gheintze, LooneyLlama and tank commander, two of them 6-2, Frostberg and gonzalan on his winning streak! It might have to do with the scorekeeping, so maybe you should check, but I myself am on a 7-1 score. Only Droopy managed to teach me some humility. Wink



So the postcard, I think we will keep with the singing theme, but this time a Golden Oldie from the other side and the other war:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30626174/M44%20Stuff/39a.jpg

United States, by Reg Manning, published by Curteich, Chicago, distributed by Lollesgard Speciality Co., Tucson.



The famous Arizona cartoonist Reg Manning contributed to America’s propaganda war effort with some of the most imaginative postcards issued during World War II. For the United States, the first major piece of good news in the Pacific war took place on april 10 1942, when 16 B52 medium bombers commanded by Col. Jimmy Doolittle took of from the deck of the aircraft carrier Hornet and bombed Tokyo, some 670 miles away. Although the bomb damage was minimal, it had a tremendous psychological effect on the Japanese, who until then felt they were impervious to attack from America.

American satisfaction with the success was vastly out of proportion to its military value. Shortly after the attack, Manning seized on the news of the Doolittle raid and cam up with this brilliant depiction of the fictional admiral Motomissin (as in "Motor Missing") deploring, "Oh Son of Heaven! Snap the sacred Kimono! American Planes coming! Run for the Shelter!" Admiral Motomissin is followed closely by Little Itchy carrying the Hara-Kiri (suicide) sword.

As always in propaganda postcards, the Japanese are depicted as heavily bespectacled, diminutive, and bucktoothed, though the admiral depicted here is uncharacteristically built like the caricature Goering, who was in reality between beef and obese.

The postcard title, "The Yanks Are Coming" is that of the most popular World War I song.

Source: Propaganda postcards of World War II by Ron Menchine (ISBN: 1-58221-024-1)


We might see another Re Manning one, but for that the Allies need to win the tournament.
So I am confident we will see that postcard on the finish line! Cool

Re:Results for Pacific Online Tournamnet Sun, 16 February 2014 23:52
Jaykay and I played our game today and the winner is...

I am pleased to report the first Allied win here. I barely prevailed (my last medal was for taking the PM town in the center via movement) 9 (32) to 7 (27)

I start the game with both ARMOR ASSAULTs TFH, AIR POWER and a RIGHT PROBE. The Japanese open with MOVE OUT and rush my forward infantry. They follow this up with 2-2-2 and take out one of my right infantry. A Japanese infantry takes the OM on my left and it is a 2 to 1 game. On my 2nd turn the Range goes to 4 and I am forced to use my newly drawn DHQ to counter the early Japanese success. One of my right tanks picks off a 2 fig infantry while I weaken two infantry on my left.

I lose a left 1 fig infantry and another of my infantry is hit 3 times. Two Japanese tanks are lined up in the center with one being parked in Shuri Castle. I use my first ARMOR ASSAULT and two tanks move up to fire at range on the Japanese armor in the open but only get 1 hit. I take out a 2 fig infantry on my right and a 1 fig and 2 fig infantry on my left. I now lead 5 to 2. After only losing 1 tank fig to a two tank attack I use another DHQ. I take out one tank and reduce the other to 1 fig. But one of my Flame Tanks is killed off by the 1 fig tank in the center and a Japanese infantry moves onto the Om hex on my left and takes out a 1 fig infantry. Now it is a 6 to 5 game.

I try TFH and order two tanks. I take out the infantry on the left OM hex but whiff on the 1 fig tank in the center! Still, this gives me a 7 to 4 lead. But the Japanese storm back and take out a center Combat Eng in a jungle hex with two 3d attacks. Then I lose my right 3 fig infantry on the OM hex to a 3d attack and lose a medal and a three medal swing occurs. It is now tied 6 to 6. Full daylight comes on my 6th turn and I can now use AIR POWER but it is too late for that.

I use my other ARMOR ASSAULT and order my last three tanks. I finally kill off that center 1 fig tank and get 3 hits on an infantry on the right hills. I also get 2 hits on an infantry on my left. After the Japanese order three center infantry and attack my tanks and get 2 hits I am in good shape to close things out. But a 3d attack on a 1 fig infantry sitting on the right Allied OM results in a total whiff. One hit here and it was game over.

We both gain a medal in the next Japanese turn as I lose my right tank but before it goes it takes out the 1 fig infantry it missed last turn with the AMBUSH I drew after my last turn. Now my left tank justs drives into Shuri Castle and takes the game.

The Stats with my numbers first:

SHOTS: 82 to 69

HIT PCT: INF 46 to 48 / TKS 24 to 26 / TOT 39 to 39

Very close in pct and I had a slight edge in shots.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=40 087416


We played game 2 for fun and in psite of the score, it was a lot closer than that.

I won 9 (30) to 4 (24) as the Japanese.

I start with Two ATTACKs, a PROBE, a RECON and FIREFIGHT. Not a lot of promise there.

I order three units on my right as two infantry and my tank charge the forward hill units. I only get 3 hits. On the first US turn four daylight stars are rolled and the range goes to 5. This could be trouble for me already. My two left forward infantry are hit. I play TFH and order a tank and two infantry. I press on with my left units and bag both the sandbag infantry there with the Allies losing an OM. I lead 2 to 1.

Full daylight is upon us on the 2nd Allied turn. I lose one of my left infantry and my left tank takes a hit. I order two units on both flanks but my left attacks whiff on a tank and infantry. My right attacks does not do much better. The Allies move back into the left OM hex to go up 3 to 2. There is no better time to use my ARMOR ASSAULT as all three of my tanks are still in action. Two attack on my right and one on my left. I take out a 2 fig sandbag infantry on the Allied right OM and get 2 hits on a tank with my OR attack. Once again my right attacks do not do well and I only get 1 hit with 6d and no ORs there either. I do have a 3 to 1 lead though.

A US TFH orders three infantry and two tanks but have massive dice failures as they can only get 1 kill and 5 hits with 24 dice. My CENTER ASSAULT orders 7 units and I kill off two tanks to make it a 5 to 2 game. The US plays CA and orders 6 units but once again can only kill a weak infantry.

I play TFH and order both my remaining tanks and three infantry. I kill off a 2 fig infantry on the Japanese OM hex on the US left and TG to get 2 medals. I also kill off a Combat Eng in the center and lead 8 to 3. But I miss a 1 fig infantry on my left with a 3d attack which would have ended things.

The US plays a RIGHT ASSAULT and orders five units and kills off one of my tanks which could have exited on my next turn.

I then finish off things by sending two units after a 1 fig infantry although it does take both 2d attacks to get that 1 hit. A failure there may have meant real trouble for me as I had three 1 fig units and a 2 fig unit on my left. Jaykay had a DHQ in hand and could have just moved into 2 OMs and had a good chance to take out the three 1 fig units.

The Stats with my numbers first:

SHOTS: 82 to 66

HIT PCT: INF 41 to 47 / TKS 25 to 25 / TOT 37 to 36

Once again I got off more shots and the hit pcts were close.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=40 088000

A very nice scenario Eric.

Another great scenario, with lots to consider for both sides ...

If anyone playing as Axis makes it off the board I'll be amazed ! Wink


Hope the rest of the Axis team do a lot better with results than I managed !

Another Allied victory at Okinawa.

I won 9-4 with great cards, dice and gung-ho. The Allies were able to respond to every Japanese attack.

In the rematch, the allies won again 9-6. Looks like we might have the advantage in this one... Smile As usual, stay in cover and just respond to their attacks. If you get BEL try for the permanent medal. Good luck!

Thanks for the great game Christophe - I just had more luck today.

Geoff

It's nice to see the good start by the Allies. But as I said about the last scenario, the Axis will get their victories. Just hopefully not too many.

Yes, 2 ALLIED victories, gives me hope in my match against FROSTBERG!!! Or given how the past 2 rounds have gone, ALLIES getting out to a 4-1 lead, maybe I should try and schedule my match to be one of the 1st 5 and improve my odds! Laughing

Job well done TC and SAC Geoff!!

:NEWS FROM THE FRONT:

Allied troops have pulled of a staunch defense against the Japanese attackers! Victory ALLIES 9-4

Stats:
ALLIES:

34 figs killed, 70 dice rolled, and 49% hit rate.

AXIS:

24 figs killed, 75 dice rolled, 32% hit rate.

Replay: http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=40 125911

I had great cards and was able to withstand two huge pushes, one in the center and one on my left, by the axis troops. The dice also heavily favored me and in the end it was to much for the axis, though several times they forced me off my objective medals, causing several orders being used to reclaim them!

Thanks to Clorofila for the games, and for your outstanding sportsmanship! You are a great opponent who I would gladly face again!

Thank you Josiah, you played very well and deserved the win! Also, I thank you once again for being so patient and understanding.
You modestly forgot to mention your win on the rematch. A full victory for you, it was Smile
I gambled twice in the game, first in my right flank, because I had the cards (but alas, you had them too!) and then in the center section because I was out of options. In both cases you fought back nicely for an easy win.

Better luck for my fellow companions!

The Japanese force, let by Artimon put on a fierce fight but i'm glad to report a Allied victory.

Allied: 9

Gonzalon (Allies) vs Frostberg (Axis) 7:9

First the night was very dark. With the rising sun I get a lot of very nice cards for swarming japanese. Infantry Assault, Center Assaults two times, Move out etc.
So I could overrun my opponent at the left and the right border of the center. difficult to defend and his counter-attacks had no lucky dice. Finally i could exit a unit to get the last victory point i needed.

Thx a lot do Gonzalon. Very nice and well playing opponent.

Frostberg lived up to his moniker! Put me in the "Deep Freeze", gave me the "Big Chill", a shrug of his "cold shoulder" and I was done! I ran into the tip of the Frostberg and like the Titanic I was done!

Night was slow in arriving like he mentioned and I have never been one to sit back and wait, sorry SAC Geoff, was off and running and on the attack on my right without the benefit of daylight! Laughing Cards spoke to me and said Attack Right!

Was up 4-1 and had a chance on my right, with the best possible dice to get 3 kills, but not to be.

On a TFH later, had a chance to get 2 more kills and stem the tide on my Left, not to be again and Frostberg FInished it off in Fine Fashion, medal and an EXIT, well played by him.

We each rolled 67 dice, I hit 46%, all on INF, he hit 54% on INF and can't remember the rest.

Had my chances and he took advantage of his good center cards. Was a good game and enjoyed it even in losing.

Go Team Allies!

Droopy007 and I met for our match today.

The short version is that fortune smiled upon him today, as the Japanese won 9-4. He'll wrote more about it tomorrow, after catching his breath.

We played a rematch, which was much closer though his Marines won, 9-8.

After a good night sleep, I'm happy to confirm Sam report Smile

It was a quick game, 13 turn. Night was still on at the end of the game.
I was blessed with very good cards, they helped me mount all the way up my left, quickly and forcefully, suffering only 2 losses.
Sam defended well, but I destroyed his armors 2 times in blocking their retreat, during the one turn after their arrival. So they didn't have a very big impact on my troops.
He had several pretty ugly shoots of dice too, not finishing units with only 1 figure left...
In the end, we had equal dice, but Sam missed more crucial ones... We were even surprised that I had so low hit rate. That was not the impression of the game.
Still, as usual a very nice match against Sam Smile

In the rematch, Sam Japanese take their time to place themselves then launch the attack. It happened on both flank, and I more responded to his moves than tried to launch any attack. I prevailed on the last turn, after He missed the opportunity to win... Very intense and more fun than the one sided first match ! Smile

Yup, Droopy had excellent cards and executed them flawlessly. He got some timely kills when he needed them., and I had devastating misses when I needed hits.

Re:Results for Pacific Online Tournamnet Tue, 25 February 2014 23:40
Luc and me got together today for our match and the Japanese opened aggressively (I feel a good tactic for the Japanese) coming on all flanks helped by two DFHQ's but I had General advance and a counter so could defend very well. I was comfortably building my lead by killing everything that came up the ridge and retreating (a lot of) one figure units. Also the sun had risen to maximum daylight. 5-2 the score (with nobody on any objectives). I was feeling good.

Then Luc overran my right flank with an Assault followed by an TFH, which snagged him 5 units. I only managed to get one in return so the score is 7 - 6 in Luc's favor. My right flank just one lonely engineer left on the baseline a full strength Japanese infantry in the jungle next tot it the medal objective open. If he has a probe left I am done.

But I was saving a BEL for this. With hung ho I could order two units tot attack and run to my two free objective. Ambush had been played before the TFH, but Luc had had only the one chance to draw it so I ran my lonely engineer next to the jungle with the lonely tank and shot three dice into the jungle. Hit and kill. The rest was a walk in the park for two infantries to the objectives.

Endscore 9-7 for me

Without the BEL, I think Luc would have won.

link to match


The Rematch was won by the Japanese 9-6 in the replay I saw that Luc had a Barrage from the beginning and a Dig-In soon after effectively reducing his hand.

Thanks for playing Luc a pleasure as always.



Something else: when Luc chatted the letters of his text were back to front, and sometimes even mirrored. An example:

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

Now I know french isn't everyones cup of tea, but this is ridiculous. Razz

Has anyone experienced this before?

Too funny Jeroen!! Saving the BEL just for that, considering you drew it after your Turn 7, played a card on Turn 8 and then BEL on Turn 9!!! But, yes, good that you had it when you did and well played game by you.

Waited and waited, killed and killed and played the BEL at the right time, well done and now at worse, 5-5 for the round and we go into the last round up 2 and we get a chance to end things on enemy territory!! Gung Ho!!

A win for the japs !

9-5 for the Axis against JAParker who fought really well.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/fr/battle/?id=40 305384

The battle ended before the sun rise. The american did take the Shuri Castle very quickly. Unfortunately, thanks to a massive japs counter attack, the US tanks were destroyed.

The Axis then focused on their left flank. The good orders (good cards!) allowed to get medals easily. 4 medals in one turn. JAP tried to defend himself from the japs, but he hasn't the possibility to throw as many dices as he wanted.

The odds were similar to both camps. But I got more chances to throw dices. Thanks to my opponent ! And thanks to Looney for this nice scenario !


PS: we played with the other side of the board, and unfortunatly, he couldn't take his revenge...

Vaillants is very modest in his description of the battle. While it is true that he had somewhat better cards, it is also true that he made excellent use of them. He was also quite skillful in exploiting my mistakes (I can think of at least 3 of them). And making mistakes against a player of his caliber is certainly not a recipe for success!

Although the result was not what I had hoped for, I enjoyed the match anyway. Vaillants is truly both a gentleman and worthy opponent, and I hope to have the chance to play him again.

van Voort 9/29 v 6/18 LooneyLlama

Tough and hard fought battle, we advanced and took out the Yankee outpost on the left after an initial probe on the right was knocked back

Ceding ground on the right we invited the enemy to advance into ground of our chosing whilst overunning the left and infiltating out

Battle was won when his spearhead in the castle was cut off and wiped out

Ah, well, looks like once again, we jump out to a lead and can't hold or increase it much, 5-4 now and one battle to go. Either up 4 or up 2 like at the start of this round. Will make for an exciting last round, all we can ask for!!

Our last man has a fight on his hands to give us a 4 up lead and put the pressure back on them!! Good luck ALLIED defender!

I couldn't hold off the Japanese onslaught. The BEL card to escape a unit was the turning point. Also, dice were a little weak. van Voort played it superbly. Attacking the Allied right is the way to go in this scenario.

The second game played like the first. I overwhelmed his right flank. Even though he had over 60% hit rate on my inf. and I was in the 40's I threw over 80 dice to win. Unfortunately, it didn't count.

If Budiheo or Dugrim would be kind enough to let me know when they might be playing their match, I may be able to start the final round before they meet. I can always reintroduce the scenario for them to play later. Thanks.

Well done Dugrim! Up 4 is much better than up 2 going into the last round!

190 total dice, wow and each still shot in the 40% range, just crazy!!
