I'm just talking about who's getting shot and who's holding the 'high ground' of victory! (At least in the battles that count for the scorecard Shocked Cool )

And appears that Buidheo and VXC1302 are possibly playing as I type this, leaving only Goekawar and JJ's Juggernaut to finish the round if the other 2 matches are played today/tonight.

Michele, your wish almost grant for revenge!! Will see what the next round holds for us, one more victory and will will take the round again, 5-2 as of now.

Re:Western Front Tournament Logistics Sun, 25 May 2014 17:29
Eric, Jero, and all my Western Front comrades:

I'm about to take a season of unplugging from online play. All is fine. I'm just needing to take the time I've been putting into M'44 online for some reading, writing, and saxophone playing--for an open-ended season.

It's been incredible being a part of this tourney and others and hanging out on the online battlefield. I have truly enjoyed every single match I've gotten to play with you guys over the months.

So, I'm just checking to see if any of you know of someone who'd like to replace me for the rest of the tourney? I don't have a cut off date, but hope there's someone who'd like to sub in soon. I could play into the next round if needed...

Round 3 is now completed. I will have our 4th round scenario up sometime today. Jeroen, it is your turn (I think) to make the lineups. Both you and John will need to look over the scenario and decide where you want to place a reserve unit before we begin.

Re:Western Front Tournament Logistics Tue, 27 May 2014 01:05
Our 4th round battle will be: Operation Dragoon/Capture of Toulon. This is a 10 medal battle that I feel is very difficult for the Allies. But of course, you never know with those fickle dice and cards. Keep in mind that the French Resistance badges will enable these troops to move into towns, ruins, etc. and still battle. They also will retreat like French Resistance units. They really represent regular French Army units but the editor does not allow for this. I used the badges to show that this was a French operation. Hopefully, you will enjoy the scenario.

Eric

By the way, the Allies can use French Resistance infantry or flamethrower tank for their reserve unit if so desired.

So, Eric, just tried out Op Dragoon against Hermann. He Air Powered and hit Big Willy with 2 grenades. It gave him an arty medal but nothing more. So, must the Allies capture the bunker Big Willy is in for the 2 permanent medals? And does the destruction of Big Willy count as an arty medal in addition to the two permanent medals upon capturing the hex? Or is the destruction of BW and capturing of the hex the two permanent medals?

Re:Western Front Tournament Logistics Tue, 27 May 2014 23:42
IGH,

You must capture the hex (bunker) to gain the two medals. With the very limited editor options there is no way to make the destruction of artillery worth 2 medals. It's a shame that the editor hasn't been updated for quite awhile as I have many ideas that I think you all would enjoy but am unable to incorporate. I'll rewrite the text to make it more clear.

Today is kind of packed with activities front to back. So I will probably determine if we use a reserve unit in the next 30 hours.

Thank you for your patience. Cool

Or you call a draw when the score is tied at some point and each get a 1/2 point! No worries, Antoi, sure each of you will get your fair share of victories in the remaining battles to come.

This next one should be another fun one with plenty of action and objectives to reach! Cool

Since neither commander has opted to use a reserve unit, the 4th round battles may commence. Remember that the ' French Resistance' badges on the 4 figure units will attack and retreat like normal 3 figure French Resistance units. Hopefully you'll enjoy this scenario.

Quick clarification request, Eric: will we allow the use of Behind of Enemy Lines on Anti-tank allied infantry or, like in a previous tournament, we won't allow that? Thanks!

Axis Kameraden,

I've managed to find a replacement for me during my hiatus from M'44 online. Lindsay aka Southoftheborder will be stepping to finish out the tourney. I hope he'll bring a few more wins than I've been able to procure. Shocked

I'm pulling for an axis final victory! You guys can do it!

It's been a GREAT honor battling and bantering with all of you. Thanks for the privilege. Hopefully see you all around soon. I will miss being a part of all these very well done scenarios.

If you need anything I can be reached at dani.azlctyre@gmail.com

Take care. Play well. And have fun!

Clarification:
You can use BEL on an AT unit to move it 6 spaces. You just can't fire with it after moving 3. Razz

Re:Western Front Tournament Logistics Wed, 18 June 2014 16:26
Hello fellow commanders. Our 5th round battle will be my version of Mortain. It will be posted this evening. Jeroen will make the lineups and I will need both him and John to let me know the placement of their reserve units.

Please read the notes carefully. The Allies will be using Hill 317 rules. Night rules are also in effect. I am going to take advantage of a bug in the editor by allowing Recon 1 cards to be played as 'Air Power' before full daylight. The Air Power is really Artillery Barrages that the Allies used to stem the onslaught of the German attack. All other night rules are played as normal. Barrage and Air Power are only played at full daylight. Please play the scenario before your match to see how the rules work. Any questions should be posted here. Thanks.

Everyone,

Mortain(online) can now be played online. I will go back to the previous scenario when necessary.

Jeroen and John, set lineups and select your reserve units.

As stated we will be using a reserve unit and it will be an armor unit on hex E9.

It will be in the middle section on the free hex next to the road. The hex marked with a blue border here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30626174/jerfotodiv/reservetanksMortain.png


AS a replacement for IGH we welcome southoftheborder to our team, may he share in the glory of the upcoming Axis victory. Smile


And the line-up for this round is:

Buidheo v Kellogs_10
Clorofila v southoftheborder
gheintze v Droopy007
Goekawar v Dugrim
Gonzalan v Artimon
Jaykay2010 v Jeronimon
Junior72 v Vercingetorix1302
LooneyLlama v Antoi
Lucky91 v Quit2
Michelecannone v JJ's Juggernaut
Tank commander v JAParker


Alies decide on their reserve unit, LooneyLlama can do the placing and we can start the next round.

Let's take, not only the hills, but Mortain as well gentlemen! Mad

Cool
