Greatest Battles (from the M'44 community) with links to the replays Thu, 27 October 2011 15:42
Let's be honest -- this new replay feature is incredible.

It now allows me to share some of the greatest battles I can remember.

1) 1st Armored to the Rescue vs. corregidor

I was down 4-0 (as the Allies) and scored five medals on the last turn with two tank units...
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=23 809240#replay:turn=1

2) Meat Grinder vs. Carmsworth

An incredible battle I played today as the axis. Both of us had multiple chances to win. Made even more incredible by the fact that I had hardly any right flank cards. Great game, Carmsworth. I wish we could have both won.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=26 310799

The first game of this match was also interesting, as I attacked almost exclusively on the right flank as the Allies. I've not seen that before.

3) A game from several months ago against sam1812 at Ponyri. It was epic...

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=23 065662

Please share your own 'greatest hits'. I look forward to learning and enjoying...

Geoff

P.S. One more interesting replay -- That board looks a little different... hmmm, could it be...?

OP Cobra, I was down 4-0 and it looked like a total shut out...

I played TFH and got 5 medals in one turn for the win...

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=22 198732#replay:turn=9

I was a total shock for both of us.

And you even had an attack that rolled 3 stars in that sequence.
Amazing.

It took me a second to figure out how you got 6 medals from 4 attacks! Very Happy But then I remembered that Ponyri is worth 2 medals and it all made sense... Cool

Could I ask about something.. We played Ponyri last weekend and from the rules (dont remember exact words) was clear for me that if you occupied more town hexes then your enemy, you have got the two medals. So if you are on 3 hexes and enemy only on 2, you got the 2 medals. Nowhere was written that the enemy must be totaly eliminated from town - but it seems it's played this way in online version. So how it is guys? The same thing is in Red Barricades etc. Thank you.

PS. And why the soviets dont have the 2 medals at the start of the game?

The online version plays this battle correctly. The Allied player does indeed start with 2 medals, and you get the medals as long as you hold more of the hexes. You don't have to eliminate all of the enemy units from the town...

You might try playing the Online version again soon because I think you'll find that the rules are applied normally. Smile

This confused me too, until Sam figured it out.

For some reason the battle replay only shows one medal for Ponyri. Sam started 1-0 in the replay. But it is really worth two medals when you play the game.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=26 090092#replay:turn=22

Probably my greatest online battle - a 34 turn slugfest at Warsaw which I lost to Second Lt. YouLose (congrats again!). At the end of turn 19 I was up 4-1. In turn 21 I reduced one of his infantry units to a single figure. During the rest of the game I rolled a total of 9 dice against this lone figure with NO HITS! I ended up losing this game 6-5.

I ended having to use my turns to retreat weak units (I had 4 single figure units still on the board at game end). I held the Barrage card a LONG time because it would only give me 1 medal and I needed 2 to win, so I elected to retreat weak units, and never got to use Barrage.

Lots of things I should have done better, (totally forgot about using Recon 1 as AirPower) but still, a GREAT battle!

afterthought: I wish we could see the game dice % after these replays...

Here's an interesting battle - not mine:

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=26 248118#replay:turn=12

The Axis winner plays Air Power at Pegasus Bridge, killing 4 single figure infantry for the win, and the expert 'Axis Aces High' achievement, which has only 6 recipients to date.

HOLY CRAP! AND he held on to Air Power from the end of round 4 - that's mightly cold blooded!

Amazing play - give the man a medal... oh wait...

By the way - one little feature would make this replay thing EVEN better - a chat option... Henry Pelham and I had a long look at our games last night - but it was a bit of a problem having to go back and forth to the afterreport screen all the time. If it could possibly be included as an option in the after action, that would be even more awesome.

Not my greatest battle, but certainly well fought. My opponent had me down 4-1 Operation Cobra and had taken out ALL of my armor units. The tide turned just after I played the DIG-IN card.

One of my best battles (gheintze, please, don't you think it would be great to rename that threa !?).

ARRACOURT with axis :

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/fr/battle/?id=26 079980#replay:turn=1

i had very good cards, indeed, but my dice were so poor !!

I won 6/4, with, IIRC, 24% on infantry, and 25% on tanks (considering I sometimes did cut some retreat hex).


EDIT : on that battle, as an example,
- 7 dice on tanks on 1st turn -> 1 hit ;
- 21 dice on tanks on MY 2nd turn (armour assault) -> 4 hits (yes, less than 1 out of 5 !!) ;
- 3 dice on tanks on an ambush (his 2nd turn) -> 1 flag no hit (he couldn't attack anyway) ;
- 8 dice (close combat) on tanks and 3 on infantry on turn 9 -> 2 hits on tanks, 1 on infantry !
and on, and on...

:: masochist post ::

Here's my worst move playing Online Memoir 44. It cost me the match, my pride and earned me the harshest comment I got from an opponent so far: "That's the stupidest move I've ever seen". I didn't blame him: it is the stupidest move that I've ever seen too Razz

In your case I'm sure it was an elaborate scheme to make your opponent overconfident and win the rematch with the weak side. Wasn't it ? Very Happy

Well done Hellcat !!

Here is a game I won 6-0 in my last 2 turns (14 turns overall, 0-0 at the beginning of turn 12), St Vith with allies : my opponent did have bad rolls (0 dice out of 5 for playing "medics" on an armour unit ; 1 flag and no hit out of 9 dice on my armour units).

JAPANESE COUNTERATTACK

ONE JAPANESE INFANTRY UNIT TAKES OUT BOTH ARTILLERY UNITS AND ALSO CAPTURES THE HOSPITAL......SHOULD BE A NEW MEDAL!!!!!!!!!

Re:Greatest Battles (from the M'44 community) with links to the replays Tue, 22 November 2011 00:34
Today is the anniversay of "Sidi Rezegh Airfield."

As I usually do I played (at least one battle from) both sides.

Unlike my worst ever dice rolls (0/38 vs armour as Allies in Sidi Rezegh Airfield) today my dice and cards were running hot.

Battle 1 as Axis 5-1 in 4 turns (2 turns each)
Battle 2 as Allies 5-4 in 5 turns (3 Allied turns)

My thanks to Colonel Morgiliath for being such a tolerant opponent despite his bad luck.

My secret was to play a number of warm-up solo matches to use up all the bad dice and cards.

Ok; it was not impossible, but it does not often happen.

Today with the Sidi Rezegh Airfield memorial a win with axis on turn 1.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=26 791295#replay:turn=2

Luckily, Major Masterchieflegend had given me a 5-nill on the pants in the match before this one, otherwise I would really be embarrassed.

Yesterday, I won the "star wars" award on a great battle around Ponyri, where I thought I would win on turn 16 while using the "big guns bombing" (or whatever the name in english) on a single infantry unit on the last line... and got 4 stars !!

@Helcat : It was the most expensive turn then since the two ingots were consumed right away Laughing

@silenttimo the card is named 'barrage'. Hint to the english names : go to replay mode, right click on a card to open it in a new window or tab, then change the 'fr' part of the name to 'en' Smile. Congratulations on your award Very Happy

Thanks !

I wish I had won the "I love pineapples" instead : the victory would have been easier...

Anyway, I watched the replay, and my opponent's beginning was great, but at the end, he did not have lots of possibilities -no grey card [except the artillery one, with no artilery]or no center card !).

When I saw the 4 stars... I thought I had lost the battle !

I can't call this a "great" game, because this one was largely in the luck of the cards and dice, but it was so abnormal that I have to post it. My opponent -- Player210138, who is a very strong player -- did all the "right" things, even though it turned out disastrously for him.

The scenario was Ponyri, but it seemed more like Sidi Rezegh Airfield. I played 3 consecutive Armor Assaults, rolling 46% tanks and grenades. Totally wacky.

Yesterday, Probably one of my worst battles, but a very qick and sudden victory for my opponent.
5 turns grand total...

Final stats : ME : infantry 0/4 (0%), armour 3/15 (20%) ; OPPONENT : infantry 15/24 shots (62%), armour 6/7 (86%).

Inadequat cards, very bad dice, great cards and dice for my opponent : I could not do much...
