Jeronimon vs Titanos

I can say I started out well.

Viombois ' Maquis

Replay Aller
I started with the Allies and had an infantry assault. So we both started maneuvering and getting rid of cards like sand bags and artillery bombard. After a their Finest Hour I retaliated with my Infantry Assault. Both scoring no points. A Move Out after that got Titanos his first medal. But my All in the centre after that got me three. I then pushed on my left flank and got two more medals there. (One figure of the French getting lucky with two flags and running 4 full hexes back to safety. Titanos took a second medal and after that Behind Enemy Lined to a 2 fig unit killing that and taking the objective with a one fig inf.
My retreated 1 fig infantry then shot him for a 6-3 victory.

Jeronimon vs Titanos 1-0 games 6-3 medals 25-13 figures.

Replay Retour Maneuvring in the beginning and then Titanos came forward in the centre, but I managed to kill his forward 2 units. 2-1 the score. He then retreated and I followed. The score creeping up: 3-1 3-2 3-3 4-3 me coming over my left flank and Titanos missing a 1 fig inf that I then retreated to safety. A barrage by Titanos failed to kill 2 fig on the baseline leaving 1 man standing. I pressed on on my left flank and took my fifth medal. Titanos airplanes took out the solitary figure on my baseline, but I stormed the objective and killed the unit there for my final medal. 6-4

Jeronimon vs Titanos 1-0 games 6-4 medals 21-25 figures.


On to Counterattack at Carentan
The last time I played this scenario it was in 2014 I think for a LooneyLlama tournament. But the memories came back and helped me.

Replay Aller
Starting with the Allies I tried to get my right flank into the field as soon as possible. But was lacking cards there, so when Titanos defended there it was hard for me to help my right flank. so I tried to put pressure elsewhere. At the end we fought fiercely on the edge of Carentan, But I think double flagging Titanos of the ruins helped me a great deal. at 8-7 I Firefighted my last medal. 9-7

Jeronimon vs Titanos 1-0 games 9-7 medals 36-24 figures


Replay Retour Titanos came on string with the allies over both flanks. I was thrown back or destroyed. The medals kept racking up for him and I was 2-7 behind. This was not looking good. He weakened an armor unit killing 2 with 3 dice but missed the following dice so my lone tank could retaliate I could come back to 7-4. some more shooting and me pushing the allies of medalobjectivts and getting on them myself 7-6. but Germans are dying all over the place and units getting weakened. I dropped back to 5 medals losing an objective. The game should have been over really with a win for Titanos, but my teflon soldiers weren reduced but no units dying. at 5-7 I desperately ran for objectives and killing man on those objectives, got 4 medals in that turn for an, undeserved, win. 9-7.

Désolé copain, pas de chance ce fin de parti! Wink

Jeronimon vs Titanos 1-0 games 9-7 medals 30-27 figures


Merci pour jouer, tous les jours une plaisir de jouer contre toi.
(Peut-Être samedi a Melle encore une fois! Smile )


Total score:

Jeronimon vs Titanos 4-0 games 30-21 medals 112-89 figures

Continuing my winning streak, it makes me very nervous, let's hope it keeps going on Very Happy

See you on the battlefields!

DoctorSchizzo vs Jeronimon


Viombois ' Maquis

Replay Aller
I started with the Allies and had an infantry assault. So I was bringing my troops to the center. We exchanged barrage, me reducing a unit to one fig, the Doctor destroying one of mine. I played my inf assault but just reduced troops. DoctorSchizzo countered and destroyed one of my inf and reduced one to one fig. I got my forst medal after that.
An Assault center should have gotten the Doctor at least another medal but he flagged my lonely guy out of reach with two! flags. (Run forest run Wink )
We exchanged some potshots again and a move out and an ambush got the score up to 1-4 in his favor. he tried to retreat some wounded units but lined them up for the Air Power and that got me tow medals and back in the race. 3-4
He retaliated recon in force and took a 5th medal. My their finest hour got me two medals. 5-5 and the tension was unbearable. The German forces now consisting of 3 1 fig units and 1 3 fig unit. Lucky for me he did not have a good card to play and after that I Played behind Enemy Lines and took out a 1 fig unit for a tense 6-5 victory.

DoctorSchizzo vs Jeronimon 0-1 games 5-6 medals 19-31 figures.

Replay Retour Me playing the Germans. Had an Assault center so slowly started moving troops there, while doing that also got an inf assault. And already held TFH. So a center assault is was going to be. Played inf assault, was met by french resistance with an assault center, played my assault center, was met with a general advance and played my TFH. Managed to get a 3-1 lead, but forgot to move my troops out of te center where I had no more cards. Sad
DoctorSchizzo slowly started killing my center troops and I was trying to get it going on my left flank with only one unit. He overtook me into a 3-4 lead. then my single man on the left kille one of his 2 since men on the left. 4-4 His second single man missed me (I think the match winner) another TFH saw and my single man shoot the other single man and advance in the center again. 5-4 The Doctor tried to flag my men away with an air power, but one of my units stayed and I walked onto the Ferme de Voimbois for my sixth medal.

DoctorSchizzo vs Jeronimon 0-1 games 4-6 medals 27-18 figures.

Total:
DoctorSchizzo vs Jeronimon 0-4 pts 0-2 games 9-12 med 46-49 fig

Both good and tense games that could have gone the other way.
Merci pour jouer et bonne chance pour la suite!


On to Counterattack at Carentan, DoctorSchizzo will report on those.
(So you know I did not win those Wink )

Sauron93 vs Jeronimon

We were both ahead of the other two contenders, so this was the final for the championship. (no pressure)

Viombois ' Maquis

Replay Aller
Lots of maneuvering and my French got a early kill on the left with an inf Assault in the middle. That was countered and my men were flagged to safety. Assault from my side wounded lots of troops but no kills.2-2-2 from Sauron got him his first kill. Another inf assault snagged me two and got me near to wounded units. We exchanged some more shots and units 2-4. I then okayed a move out to box in and kill a 2 fig unit and 1 inf was going for a one fig unit and missed! Luckily for me I did kill the 2 fig infantry quickly and had enough dice left for anther 2 fig unit for a 2-6 win.

Sauron93 vs Jeronimon 0-1 games 2-6 medals 12-31 figures.
29%-49% on inf that helped also! Smile

Replay Retour
My cards were favoring my left side, so moved my german troops over there and advanced. Also took a little risk on my right because of a close assault and got punished 1-0 to Sauron93. Advance on my left did not go well. 2 of 3 until died 3-0 for Sauron. Luftwaffe went in and killed 4/4 and got me 2 medals. Sauron killed another unit for 4-2 lead. Advanced on my right flank (and a 2 fig unit on my left threatening a one fig unit on the baseline (which Sauron retreated to safety). managed to get 2 more medals before Sauron got to 6 medals. 6-4 to Sauron93

Sauron93 vs Jeronimon 1-0 games 6-4 medals 28-18 figures.

Total Viombois:
Sauron93 vs Jeronimon 1-3 pts 1-1 games 8-10 medals 40-49 figures.


On to Counterattack at Carentan
So going into the last scenario with a lead, that was nice!

Replay Aller
My germans were going to win this one for me. Advanced (too?) aggressively and lost my special force armor unit rather quickly. Lots of my troops in the open and Sauron slaughter them with his tanks. The worst I was behind was 7-1. brrrr, not a winning score. Managed to push Sauron93 out of one of the objectives and ran into another but got clobbered 9-4.

Sauron vs Jeronimon 1-0 games 9-4 medals 29-14 figures


Replay Retour
So now it was uphill. I had to beat a 9-4 score (but 2 medals more for me in the first match).
I had good cards on my right, but Sauron attacked on my left. Taking the objective there and forcing me in the defense. Managed to kill some of his forward troops and was getting medals, but so was he. 3 real ones and 1 obj. I whiffed with two dice on a 1 fig unit I really needed to get more medals. :lucky for me Sauron missed three single shots on a single tank on my baseline in the forest. He got into the objective on my right flank also. 4 real medals 2 objective. 6-8 the score.I pushed him out of the objective on my left, but did not kill it. 5-8. He then killed my lonely tank. 6-8 again. I knew I was behind on figures and this was equal in medals and points. So I went for it with an Their Finest Hour. Got 1 tank and 3 stars: activated two infantries and two tanks and destroyed the 4 figure infantry on the objective on my right (taking away 1 medal) and left Sauron with 5 real medals and no objectives. 5-9


Sauron93 vs Jeronimon 0-1 games 5-9 medals 24-27 figures

Total Carentan:
Sauron93 vs Jeronimon 3-1 pts 1-1 games 14-13 medals 53-41 figures


Total total:
Sauron93 vs Jeronimon4-4 pts 2-2 games 22-23 medals 93-90 figures

Always a pleasure to play Sauron93 and this evening was no exception.


So I won this match, and we both treated it as a final, that made it very tense. Smile )

But I believe Sauron93 is the champion.
Because in the poule we both now have 16 points, but overall on medals Sauron is plus 17 medals and me only plus 1.

Congratz to Sauron for his victory! Smile

"At the end of these 6 matches, the player who scored the most points in each group will qualify for the finals. If two or more players are tied after the 4-player round robin,, it will be the result of their head-to-head matches:games, then medals, then figures which will determine the winner.And , if there will be still a tie, the last match will be replay."

So , the winner is JERONIMON !

Congratulations, Jeroen !

and congratulations also to Thomas !

Indeed, Luc is correct. It may seem counterintuitive, since Thomas had better plus/minus medals, but the way the rules were published, Jeroen is the Champion.

Congratulations to Jeroen for his incredible year at Memoir!

Félicitation à Thomas pour la deuxième place!

I worry when I play against either of you! Very Happy
