Ah Jeroen,

Too clever for your own good!! Too funny! Can Frostberg keep is cool, nice play on the name.

Yes, after our 4-0 start, thought we would have a little more breathing room, but nice comeback by the EVIL AXIS group, Sam and victory might give us the edge we need to get ahead and stay ahead for the final 3 rounds!

Good luck Sam and go ALLIES!!

Gonzalan VS JK2010, Battle of Angaur, 01-11-14


http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=39 456461

JK2010 and I met and fought it out in the jungles and caves and fought over possession of "The Bowl" and the Phosphate Plant of Angaur and in the end Round 8 starts with an ALLIES victory, 8-3.

Much like the book, "Lemony Snickets" it was a series of unfortunate events for JK, though total dice was only 67-53 me, he went 9-38, 24% on my Flamethrowers, mostly with his ART and thus things made better for me.

His spotters had difficultly spotting my FT's through the jungle and when he did spot them, they were disguised with panels made out to look like the broad-side of a barn and explains why he had difficulty hitting them!!

Attack plan started on my RIGHT in an attempt to remove the SNIPER from the plant, roll 2 ARMOR and thus set in motion my plan to roll ARMOR and thus deprive JK of those rolls!! Worked out rather well I must admit.

JK wastes no time, 2-2-2 and moves to position troops and gets 2 shots off with SNIPERS. I COUNTER and say, "Ha, 2-2-2 can play at this game!" Not sure why I said that, but seemed like the right thing to say at the moment! LOL! Some damage and get one SNIPER and retreat the one in the plant.

JK attacks in CENTER, more moves of troops and the start of his ill-fated campaign on attempting to kill my FT's with his ARTY, 1-4.

While still mostly out of range, ENGINEERS itching for some work, M/O, clear 2 mines and move others into position.

JK doesn't much like my clearing of the mines, targets the ENGINEERS on my LEFT, 3-4 and they go from TOP DOG to one hurting PUPPY!!

I COUNTER again, figure, for their efforts in clearing the mine on the LEFT, why not throw them a BONE and get them a kill, so move 1 fig ENGINEER to hill, so they can get a VIEW to a KILL, but they settle for inflicting damage instead and others get a kill and 1-0 me.

At this point, JK decides 2 cards are better than 1, plays RECON, misses on FT's again and I assume gets his choice of the better card!

Me, I see his RECON 1, raise him a RECON in FORCE and take TEMP medal in The Bowl, get a 2nd kill and race out to a 3-0 lead!! Victory to the Swift or something like that, of course, early in the race and plenty yet to run!

JK, having had enough, decides he wants to make a FIREFIGHT out of things, aims 3 ARTY at 2 FT's and on INF at FT and proceeds to FIREFIGHT away, 3-14 and thus the story of the game. Guess he was trying to FIGHT FIRE with FIRE and didn't pan out for him.

ARM ASLT for me, go in for some kills, get one, 3-0, gave up TEMP medal and reduce 2 units to 1 fig each and FT"s into the teeth of the enemy, which as it turned out, unfortunately for JK, just weren't sharp this day!

Since I came in CLOSE, ASSAULT by JK and gets kill #1 on FT and whiffs on the other, 3-1 at the point.

DFHQ wants more kills from me, remember the BONE? Throw another to 1 fig ENGINEERS, FT's get one in CENTER and 1 hit on ARTY and HQ happy, 2 kills and 5-1.

M/O from JK, another FT down and and 1 fig ENGINEER put down, 5-3 and things tighten up a bit.

Here I play TFH, thinking it might be, 2 ARM and STAR...target 1 fig ARTY and get a little of JK's medicine and go 0-6, yet move INF from SAIPAN TOWN to ridge on LEFT and for a change, think ahead to my next move!!

JK again decides he wants to kill my 2 remaining FT's, not sure why other than they are in his midst, but misses continue, 1-6.

Play 2 in CENTER, FT's finally get ARTY, 6-3 and in position for my move that I planned ahead for, depending on JK's response.

JK had 3 LEFT cards, INF ASLT and PROBE 2 CENTER...goes with P2C and once again misses on FT. Planning pays off, INF ASLT for me, move CENTER and claim PHOSPHATE PLANT medal and THE BOWL medal, 8-3 and thus ends the game.

Not JK's day with the ARTY and all the misses on the ARM, kills FT's earlier and well....battle still might be raging!!

Thanks for the game JK and better luck next time. No rematch as JK had business to attend to. Good Luck to the rest of the ALLIES in the next 9 matches!!

Dice: Me, INF 21-52= 40%, ARM 0-0, ART 2-15= 13%, OVERALL 23-67=34%
Him: 9-15=60%, ARM 9-38=24%, ART 0-0, OVERALL 18-53=34%

Looney, Sam and Geoff,

Thx for the congrats, just not JK's day with ARTY, 3 guns definitely more imposing than 2 guns. And truth be told, didn't plan to start in my RIGHT, choosing the wrong card will do that!! LOL! Worked out though.

Sam,

Nooooo! The steak has been mentioned and now things will go the opposite for me!! LOL! Besides, even a blind nut finds a squirrel now and again!! And we both know what lead to my victory, thanks.

Gives hope to the rest of the ALLIES if I can do it!

Re:Results for Pacific Online Tournament Sun, 12 January 2014 16:16
I will add to the allied victories with another 8-3 win over Buidheo.

Replay

I opened with an attack on the sniper in the Phosfate plant and nailed it with only 4 dice. After that we both moved cautiously forward on the Angaur flank, 4 consecutive cards were played without any shooting. Then we engaged on that flank and the match was probably won by one of my armor units there. It took Buidheo 19 dice to get it, a hit with the third die, and after that it got away with 14 dice before getting the final two that killed it. Dice Buidheo could have used on other units if the tanks had been blown up earlier. Somewhere along the lines I also fired one shot at the sniper in the middle and got that in one die.
The score: 2-1 in my favor but with a distinct advantage on my right wing, and two snipers dead already.

I then played an assault in the middle to set up for a following firefight that got me two more medals, and took out a third sniper only three dice needed for that one. (Overall I fired 10 dice at the four snipers and killed 3 of them. All with grenades no flags .)
5-2 the score. After that Artillery Bombard killed a lone infinity man, Armor assault with two flame-thrower tanks on Japanese in Caves killed a full figure infantry and BEL made two engineer infantries run for the medal on the hill.

8-3 endscore.

M44 dicegame:
In the end the percentages leveled out (more or less) but the 19 dice for one armor unit in the beginning gave me a major advantage on that flank. And when Buidheo medicaid a lone infantry man on that flank it got: 1 tank two grenades and two flags.
So understandably Buidheo was a bit miffed at the goings on.

What can you say?
Let's just plod on and see what the future brings you, keep in there and your luck too will change.

I advised him to trash Tony/Gonzalan in the BGG league to improve his spirits,so watch out Tony!

Re:Results for Pacific Online Tournament Sun, 12 January 2014 16:48
Well, having the Allies with 50% more shots, and as well, having 1/3 of my shots being bounces on one tank (I counted 15), and being below average with my dice, makes things pretty pointless.

Really, the game suffers from too much luck. Good games that have luck in them have the play mechanics designed in a way that a string of bad luck is not fatal. In M44, it is fatal. Selected re-rolls might help, but when a string of bad luck like that wrecks an entire game, it is time to play something that compensates for luck in its game structure. The problem is in the swings - two grenades - boom, your key arty is gone. Three tanks, boom, your critical armour is gone. Or, 15 misses, and your game is over. Compounded on this is the cards, so you have a double chance to be screwed with luck. Other card games, like Wings of War, let you control the card use. One solution would have been to have had each player have his/her own deck, or to have starter cards that are the same or something like A Few Acres of Snow.

In other games, there is enough balance to make up for this. Yaquinto put out the Panzer series years ago - this is an excellent armour game with dice. The chance of you being screwed overall in luck with it is very very slim. I would pay for someone to programme it on Vassel. Now that would be awesome. Even better to have the movement of the opponents units as blind. That would be a game worth investing time in. I can count on one hand the number of times I have played M44 where true skill has played a roll with experienced players and it has not been luck based (including the times I have won, of course). Since I like strategy games, I think I just have to accept the fact that this one is not really a strategy game and it is more like yahtzee. Anyway, nothing against the map - I played it 3-4 times before that and enjoyed it. Just my two cents. Time, I think, to take a break from it.

I would like to report another Allied win. A 8 (27) to 6 (24) win over Vaillants.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=39 484339#replay:turn=1

On my second turn I kill off the sandbag hill infantry on my left with the fire of two tanks. My center flame tank is hit twice by arty so I charge the guns with my 1 fig tank but whiff. However, my arty kills off the Sniper in the Phosphate Plant.

The main battle then rages on my right as the Japanese move up. The opposing forces clash in the jungles. This is a battle I did not want and preferred to attack on my left. We traded two infantry kills each here. An Japanese ARTY BOMBARD moves the center arty into the Phosphate Plant and the other two get infantry hits.

I finally attack on my left but only ding two infantry there. I opt not to use my AMBUSH which I have had for a while and let two attacks on my tanks occur and one is hit twice. So far I trail 3 to 4 and have killed one Sniper. Things do not look good as I have three one fig units on the map and it seems the door is wide open for the capture of Saipan Town. But I block the path to that medal town and kill off a full strength infantry with the fire of three units while one of my left Flame Tanks kills off an infantry on the hills there and dings another.

The Japanese then play another ARTY BOMBARD and with a bit of luck 4 kills could have been made but I only lose a center 1 fig infantry in Saipan Town and a 1 fig Combat Eng on my left while my 2 fig Flame Tank is flagged back onto the hill medal hex so a turn that starts with me leading 5 to 4 ends in a 6 to 6 tie.

But this is a good thing as I have recently drawn BEL and use it to order a Combat Infantry on my right and a left infantry. The Combat Eng moves adjacent to a 1 fig infantry in the jungle on my right and easily kills it with 4d and then I move into the Phosphate Plant for medal eight.

The stats with my numbers listed first:

18 turns 33 mins

I elim 27 figs to 24 lost.

The STATS with my numbers listed first:

SHOTS: 64 to 47

HIT PCT: INF 44 to 72 / TKS NA to 27 / ART 00 to NA
TOT 42 to 51

But, yes, well done to the other 2 in their victories and keep them coming good guys!!

News from the front! ALLIES have prevailed!

My match vs Artimon was totally the allies to lose from the first. With a huge starting hand, including 2,2,2; TFH, Medics, and a counterattack, the cards only got better from there, including a armor assault and medics again after the THF.

Final score was 8-3 ALLIES. Hit rates were 35-30%, but the Allies 35% was greatly impacted by attacking snipers, which add a great deal of misses. The total rolled dice also tell the story with 86-69 dice.

The replay is here: http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=39 517306

Also in the rematch the Allies won again 8-6, however it was incredibly close and in my opinion a much more interesting match! It came down to the last turn, it was 7-6 and one flag forced my sniper off the factories and took away my medal. I had BEL, and a one fig unit within reach, which was my winning ticket, but that one flag ended my last turn 7-7 and Artimon killed my unit on the other objective for a final score of 8-6.

The replay here: http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=39 517866

Thanks to Artimon for being a great opponent, the games were a lot of fun!

Thanks to Josiah for the nice games we did.

Indeed, the first one was really unbalanced (after 2 medics refulling 4 injured allied units, I was just desesperate Laughing ), but your attack was impressive and well mastered. Congratulations for this deserved victory !

The second one was very nice and tense as we like. Very funny !!

Thanks Eric for this tactical map (as usual Smile )

Re:Results for Pacific Online Tournamnet Wed, 15 January 2014 21:31
WOW, I'm really impressed by the 4-0 start by the good guys. I thought the Japanese would have an edge in this one, especially with the added artillery. I have a feeling it is going to even out in the final 6 contests. I'm going to predict that the Axis will make a comeback before this round is over. It's too bad I still have to play my game.

I'd also like to make a comment about Boyd's disappointment in the mechanics of this game. It is very frustrating when you get bad cards and worse dice. It is impossible to overcome no matter how good a player you may be. I've been thinking about this problem also. The only way to overcome it that I see is to have as high a medal count as possible. This will cause the game to have a lot of turns and a lot of dice. The odds will hopefully even out before the game is over and the better player will more than likely prevail. 6 medal games are too short to overcome early bad dice and cards. In a game recently with Geoff I started with 3 recon 1 cards and a useless BEL. I knew the game was over before it began as this scenario was a quick one, and Geoff would not let me off the hook. Needless to say it was a slaughter. About the only format that I see that can reduce the chances of luck playing a major role is a balanced Overlord game with a high medal count. I think in this format the better team, especially with the better overall commander, will more than likely win. With two even teams, the game will be very exciting and enjoyable. Anyway, that's my two cents.

round#8 Battle of Angaur
sam1812 (al) 6-8 clorofila (ax)
68-77 dice, 41%-43% overall hit rate (I had 42% against armor)
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=39 535578

Fun, tense and disputed to the end! Sam missed some decisive rolls in the end-game and lacked a left flank card for a possible victory in his very last turn. He also missed that my center sniper could go for the final objective medal, but I would be able to win in that turn anyway.


I also won the rematch, but it wasn't as balanced as the first game. Even if the hit rates were similar, Sam missed a Medics & Mechanics and had no practical results with a powerful Artillery Bombard. The game was severely conditioned around that time.
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=39 536140

Thanks again for the great battles you provided, Sam! You deserved better luck, especially in the second game. The first one was fair because like Eric mentioned, the "Axis will make a comeback before this round is over." And he's the man in charge Smile
Thank you Eric for another beautiful and exciting map: I can't get tired of your work! I understand Boyd very well, but it is this SFTF tournament and the Online League that keep me from abandoning this game! Well, you guys, your skill and gentlemanly also help!...

Two very well played battles by Clorafila.

In the tournament game, the Japanese effectively took my tanks out of the game early. I had 8 figures of armor on the board when the Japanese played Artillery Bombard, and their guns rolled 6 out of 12 against my tanks. (Compare that to my Artillery Bombard in the rematch, which flagged three Allied tanks, with only 1 hit in 9d.)

Late in the game, I had a strong attack on the left flank, which the Japanese deftly defended , but I drew three useless cards in a row, and ran out of gas.

I'm honored to have contributed to the truth of LooneyLlama's prediction -- though I would have been even more honored to have defeated my very worthy opponent. Smile

Eric,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, higher medal count would help. it is telling that when you flip through the battle reviews, you rarely read "and then my opponent smartly swung his left flank around to cut off my overextended troops" and almost always read "my dice and cards sucked and my opponent's were great". I am paraphrasing, and everyone is very nice about it, but the luck aspect is crazy pervasive. When I play games with my friends, there is a bit of "oh, you rolled such and such" but the overlying theme at the end is that someone pulled a smart move or two and/or had a good overall strategy. And really, this is what lights up my neurons.

I think rerolls are the answer personally. Give 3 per game and use them wisely - that and being able to dump your hand (sack your general) for a wasted turn. Good for vassel and house rules but would require reprogramming for the online game. Given DOW's "What M44?" attitude, I don't see anything like that in my crummy hand.

The online community and the ease to play another human somewhere in the world are the only things that keep me at it. That said, I have not played another game since my last Pacific match with the "luck that broke the camel's back".

79-70 dice, 33%-50% overall hit rate

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/fr/battle/?id=39 564476

thanks to caves and dice !

I lost 5-1 after turn 11 but Dugrim have played his best cards and I could reinforce my weak flank with the caves and I justified my pseudo with better dice .

Thanks Dugrim for this tough battle .
Again , an excellent scenario. Smile

I had many center cards and the night was long and dark. So i just tried to overrun him and that worked. Nice dice helped, too. So it was a easy job. Sam played very well, but it was my lucky day.

Thanks to him for a great battle.

Damien and I played tonight and it was 2 really great games.

In the first one (the one that counts) I was able to pull it out 8-5. I had terrific cards but not so good dice. I was very cautious and my overwhelming number of dice enabled the Allies to be victorious.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=39 602407

The second game was even better. It went down to the final turn as I banzaied a 3 unit inf. for the win 8-7.

Two fun games. Thanks Damien for playing.

Boyd, yikes! That might be me. I'm getting up there.

By the way, I think we have 3 more games left this round. Then it's on to Okinawa for the final 2 battles. As a teaser, the final battle will enable the Japanese to get basically a free medal due to their reinforcement. I had written these scenarios not taking into account the reinforcements. I'm not going to change it now. I still think the Allies can win it but they might want to have a cushion going into the final round. Right now the Allies are up 3 after 7 1/2 rounds.

George George, what are the scores?

I found ten minutes to update the scores and here they are:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30626174/M44%20Stuff/Schermafbeelding%202014-01-25%20om%2007.40.19.png

So still a neck and neck race for the end victory we stand 35 to 35 after 7 rounds!

Some people are doing a little bit better and some a little worse. But JJsJuggernaut is trailing behind. Now I blame myself for that seeing as I misspelled his name (see above). I do apologize for that and have corrected that spelling mistake for round eight. (Which he promptly won, so you see the pen is indeed mightier thane the . . . .)


I think it's time for a song don't you? (Because of my mistake I will honor JjsJuggernaut's by highlighting one from the axis side.

Song postcards have always been popular, but particularly so during wars. World War I saw a plethora of them from all nations featuring patriotic themes intended to boost morale. World War II continued the trend with Germany and Japan particularly active in publishing song postcards. In fact, as early as 1931, The Horst Wessel song was printed on dozens of different Nazi postcards glorifying Wessel, an SA member killed in a street brawl with Communists on February 23, 1930. The song written by Wessel was actually titled Die Fahne Hoch (The Flag High) and extolled the virtues of the Nazis.


https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30626174/M44%20Stuff/Cards147b.jpg


This Japanese song postcard features the “Love My Country March” which translated says: We will fight for our country, Our dreams will flower. (Come true) The unidentified artist, who signed with a block “S”, shows soldiers bearing the Axis flags marching in step together. Intended primarily to evoke patriotism and national pride among civilians, the card says “Citizens Spirit Government March. The Government Information Service recommends this song.” There was almost no dissident in Japan during the war and this song would be extremely well received.

Well, I am of to war, Antoi, D_n Tiel, Goekawar, Kjellmaster, Bartjuh and myself are going to teach M44 to unsuspecting game players at the Ducosim fair today.

For Dutchies: it's at the Flint in Amersfoort. (Que commercial: And check out the tournament on the first of march in Deventer in the dutch forum. Smile )

SAC BG gheintze:

COL JAParker, reporting another Allied victory at the Battle of Angaur.

JAParker (Allies) 8 medals, 25 figures vs. kellogs_10 4 medals 18 figures

Having taken stock of their resources (Assault Left, Attack Left, Probe Center, Probe Right, Recon in Force and DFH), the Allies began an offensive on their Left Flank. Once the dust cleared (turn 10) the Allies had 4 kills (3 infantry and an Artillery) as well as the hill objective medal, for a total of 5 medals, as well as sole possession of the Left flank. The Axis had 2 medals at that point (a tank and the phosphate factory).

The battle then shifted to the Allies Right flank, where the battle raged for several more turns before the Allies finally won it by (re) occupying both Allied objectives (the hill and the phosphate factory) on a Pincer Move to secure the victory 8-4.

Replay here: http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=39 700652

We also played a "for fun" rematch, which kellogs_10 won by a score of 8-6. Replay here: http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=39 701063

I had two significant advantages over kellogs_10 in the first game:

1. He had never played the map before, while I had.
2. I had better cards, allowing me to throw 57 dice to his 43.

Dice percentages were about equal (my numbers listed first):

INF 46-50%; ARM NA-33%; ART 29-50%; Overall 44-42%

Thanks to kellogs_10 for two challenging games. This was the first time I have had the privilege of playing against him. I hope that it is not the last!

I agree with John. Two challenging games. I'm verry happy to play with you and I think it won't be the last.

So, JAParker and Kellogs_10, it looks like the game was over at 8 medals somewhere around turn 15, but you guys played on til turn 19. What was the reason for that?

I looked at the replay and at the start of T 13 the Allies had 7 medals.

They then killed off two Snipers. The Online replay feature mistakenly shows an eliminated sniper as a medal won (they do not count of course).

Online games cannot be continue past the victroy conditions of that scenario as when one player reaches the medals required for a win the game ends.

Tank Commander is correct. There are several bugs in the replay function, one of which is that it will show sniper kills as medals. There are at least 3 others that I am aware of (there may well be more):

1. In scenarios that allow units to exit for medals, the replay will often stop after a unit exits.
2. In scenarios that provide more than one medal for occupying an objective (such as Ponyri, for example) the replay will only show one medal for the objective.
3. The figure count on the replay is often incorrect (I am not sure why that is).

Having been reminded by Tank Commander that the replay does count sniper kills as medals, I went back and corrected my initial report--once I finished clearing the left flank, I only had a total of 5 medals (4 kills and an objective), not the 6 that I originally reported, as one of the kills that the replay was showing was in fact a sniper. The final score (8-4 Allies) is correct, and was based off of a screen shot, not the replay function.
