  DoW, please revise your "Battle Report" statistic charts! Sun, 24 February 2013 15:01
The DoW Online database currently contains four possible sides for which you can enter a battle report: "Allies", "Germans", "Japanese" and "Russians". On the Western and Mediterranean Front, you can enter your report as the "Allied" or the "German" player, on the Eastern Front as "Russian" or "German", and on the Pacific Front as "Allied" or "Japanese".

Not considering the minor glitch that it should be "Soviet" instead of "Russian", the current fourfold differentation is unsatisfactory in my opinion. So far, there are 9 official Eastern Front scenarios in which the Allied player is not Soviet and a further 7 in which the Axis player is not German. Additionally, there are 9 Mediterranean scenarios in which the Axis player is not or not exclusively German. The number of SFTF scenarios with similar problems is countless.

In my opinion, the sides should be renamed to "Allies" and "Axis" in all four theaters. If desired, the battle report / service record statistics could then be modified to show the total win / loss ratio and those for each theater separately.

I like seeing my battle reports broken down into at least 4 categories of Japanese, German, Allies and Russian(i.e. Soviet). I wouldn't mind having separate categories for Axis w/Italians, Poles, Finns, Marines and Allies w/British.

What I meant is that I can't see any rationale in listing Germans, "Russians" and Japanese separately while 17 other (Allied) nations are subsumed under "Allies" and another 7 (Axis) nations are not listed at all. (The aforementioned numbers are based on the editor, historically there were even more).

The battle reports always show only the win / loss ratio of the two sides actually present in each scenario. For that purpose, the two categories of "Allies" and "Axis" are absolutely sufficient. As I already said, the breakdown into different theaters or nations makes only sense on the "My service record" sheet. It was not my intent to abolish that, it may even be expanded if desired, just as you said.

Yes, it happened during the invasion of Poland, in September 1939. Early stages of the war.

Poles vs Russians:
Battle of Szack.
The scenario declares Russians an Axis Power (which technically if not officially they were by the pact to divide Poland). However, when you enter your side, you must put Poles under Axis since the choices are between Russians and Axis.

Poles vs Germans:
Battle of Warsaw,
Tuchola Forest,
Bzura River,
Hel,
Kepa Oksywska,
Tomaszów Lubelski
Battle of Kock.
For some, you must put Poles under Russians, which is weird and possibly offensive to Poles.

Allies(incl. Poles) vs Germany
various Normandy landings and scenarios e.g.
Closing the Gap

I wouldn't mind a separate choice for British when Battle Back rules are in force to see how I've done on that front, even though I don't get many Battle Back rolls.

Finns vs Russians
Suomussalmi
Winter fight at Kuhmo

Finns vs Germans
Out of Kemi

I'm not sure it it's the reason, but basically the only nations available in the dropdown menue are nations that were provided in expansions...

so British, French, and American were in the base game as Allies. Germans were also in the base game as German.

Russians were in the Eastern Front, Japanese in the Pacific Theater. Brits were already covered in the Base game...but all other nations haven't received their own expansions. I don't know if that is why we end up with only some of the nations, but it's possible. Razz
