Lightspeed defeats Sat, 03 August 2019 01:14
I am not one to usually post battle reports but this one blew me away (quite literally).

Right, so I knew beforehand that as the Russian player at "Russian Breakout" I had 85% chances to lose.

But still !

It took my opponent 2 turns to win the game. his first turn, armor assault, was an honest-to-goodness slaughter. 81% hit on infantry, a whopping 22 out of 27 dice, resulting in 4 medals.

Medals 5 and 6 came in his second turn with "only" 6 out of 10 hits.

6-0, congratulations Rikugun Taisa HO-SA-KAI Very Happy

replay here

Nothing like a good spanking before goind to bed eh Laughing

No doubt you guys have had it even worse sometimes, care to share ?

EDIT : well I had but forgotten all about this one, defeat in one turn. my bad, thread should be named "soundspeed defeats" lol

Wow -- looks like you didn't get a single hit in this one. Impressive!

Sometimes, there's nothing to do but sit back and enjoy the pretty explosions.

It happened so fast I didn't even have time to see the fireworks.

But I figured out what did happen, and it's related to HO-SA-KAI's name : on a russian map, he saw how cold it was and decided not to linger.

Indeed, his name loosely translated is OH-IT-S-FREEZING Surprised

If you ever are in the mood for the possibility of not getting a turn in try 1st Armored to the Rescue and take the Brits.

This thread contains such a post of a game like that:
