WW14 FINAL ROUND Mon, 12 August 2019 12:09
The time for launching final round has come (although not many people are playing at this time of the year)

Quite unexpectedly most maps voted were Eastern Front! I should have asked you to give choices from various maps to avoid the difficult decision I had to make.

Only 2 maps got 3 votes:
Stalingrad the last docks from Eastern (deepnet, misterfunny & Big Taz)
& Battle of Tilly-sur-Seulles from Western (lucky91, Big Taz & Photios)

As I wanted each of the 3 maps to belong to a different Front, I had to reject some nice maps with 2 votes like Combats dans Belgrade, Berlin, Battle of Leshnov & Objectif Konigsberg as they belong to Eastern Front. Additionally, Junior72 has voted in favor of any map with 3 stars, which was an extra tie-breaker to consider (so, no chance for Leshnov & Konigsberg).

Thus I had to decide between maps from either the Pacific or the Mediterranean Fronts: Battle of Lake Khasan - Action 1 (Titanos & thina67) & Attack on Tobruk (Big Taz & Photios).
I opted for the first as Big Taz and me have already one of our favorite maps, however it is unbalanced (77% for the Axis) and has Commissar rule.

Sorry, donut & KeLian_05 that none of your maps qualified for the final round.

As there is no hurry to start before September, I would ask you to advise me on the last choice: does anyone have strong feelings against Lake Khasan? If 3 players tell me that they wouldn't like this map for any reason, we will fight on Tobruk (unless of course there are 3 other players with strong feelings against Tobruk!). Please write your opinon in this thread or in a pm.

Schedules are already posted in Googledocs:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12AbBeaDWTZC6bqYVKCBD xL5H6nF1EppFZXMT6nSfzDc/edit?

So you may start scheduling: deadline on Oct 29th (to allow 2-3 days in case a substitute be required); if you need to schedule on Oct 30 or 31,please inform me one week in advance

Well i don't know for the others, but play Pacific Maps where you can score half your medals in one/two turns if you get good cards is not a pleasure for me, especially in tournaments.

For my case, i found Attack on Tobruk far more interesting than the Battle at Lake Khasan. Hope more of my fellow game partner feel the same so we can change this map for the map pool ! Smile

@ Junior72:
there must be somewhere where you may ask for authorization, because this is a necessary step if you hadn't asked already during preliminary round

With 3 negative votes on Khasan, we will change to Tobruk unless there are 3 votes insisting on Tobruk by next MOnday when my vacations are over

You may start scheduling and even play the first 2 maps and post in this thread. Next week the relevant Excel sheet will be published.

Same format for posting;for each game and each player: medals, objectives, tanks & atillery. Please in this order and add the link of each match to double-check

Dear finalists,
very happy to announce that spreadsheets are set. So there's nothing to keep us from battling. May the best (and luckiest?) win!!!

spreadsheets here:

Schedule here:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12AbBeaDWTZC6bqYVKCBD xL5H6nF1EppFZXMT6nSfzDc/edit#gid=81317373


Allow me to remind you that we should be done by last week of October 2019. In case you are not done by Oct 20th, but you have scheduled your remaining game(s) for later, please inform me with a pm.
In the unlikely event that a game has not been played by Oct 20th and there is difficulty in scheduling, again inform me ASAP; we wouldn't like to have substitutes in the Final Round.
