Quarter-final match against DDB73. I'm shocked to discover this is the first time we've ever played against each other.

Dice 38-49
Against infantry 10/28 (36%) vs 29-49 (59%%)

Game 1
https://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=7 9166404

The Redcoats were coming! They started with an Infantry Assault up their left flank. I brought my center tank and SF infantry over, and I drew an Assault Right. British TFH on their third turn wiped out my big tank and finished my lead infantry there, but my Assault bagged an infantry and engineer. Two turns later, my own Infantry Assault would complete two more kills on that flank.

An Allied Assault Center would eliminate my lead infantry near their right flank. Then, they Barraged my tank there, but only got a single hit. I responded with an Assault Center, killing an infantry and leaving an exposed engineer with only 2 figures. The British Right tried to finish off my tank, but only flagged it to safety. I responded with a Left card that killed one of the approaching infantries to win the battle. I didn't realize until afterward, when I saw the stats: DDB rolled only 36% against infantry, while I rolled 59%.


Game 2
https://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=7 9168121

After a couple of quiet turns, I charged forward with a 2-2-2, followed by a Close Assault with 4 units. This killed two 1-figure infantries, but a 2-fig in the Left bunker was only damaged.

I followed with a 2-0-2, flagging that infantry out of the Left bunker, and beginning a charge against the bunker on my right. A German TFH scored no kills. I Assaulted on my right, cleaning out the bunker there. The Germans advanced their light tank and SF infantry on my right, scoring two double-hits, but I responded with an Attack Right that eliminated both of those units. A German DHQ attacked three of my 2-fig infantries, but only scored single hits against each. I played a Probe Center, advancing one infantry into the medal town on my left, then close-assaulting the Panzer on the pier, and rolling a flag against him.

GRAND TOTAL: DDB73 - sam1812 ... 4-4 points / 18-24 medals / 92-94 figures
92-209 (44%) vs. 94-194 (48%)



Game 3
https://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=7 9169867

I was loaded with cards for my left flank -- and Attack, and Assault, and a Move Out -- plus several more that I drew. All the ingredients for a winning offensive on that flank. Indeed, I did wipe out both British units on that flank, but it took me 8 turns, and I lost four units in the process.

Over my next 8 turns, I went up my right flank, killing both infantries there, and tying the score at 4-4, needing just one more medal to advance to the semi-finals. The British artillery finished off a 1-fig on my right. Then, on my 20th turn, I brought my remaining 1-fig tank back to the center and advanced my remaining 1-fig engineer to the end of the center wadi. The engineer rolled one hit on the adjacent artillery, and the tank rolled another, giving me a 5th medal, so I didn't mind so much when the PIAT immediately demolished my Panzer.


Game 4
https://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=7 9172541

Our final battle started with a bang, as I Barraged the Panzer on my left immediately off the board. The Germans started swarming forward on my left, but the next three kills also were in my favor, including the second Panzer.

However, there still were four German units on my left, and a German Assault completely wiped my two infantries off of that flank. A pair of 1-1-1s allowed my artillery to eliminate another infantry, but that just cleared the way for an engineer to nuzzle up and kill my artillery. I still led, 5-3, but I had no cards for my center.

The German engineer and artillery knocked out one of my center bunkers. I finally drew a center card, but my 4 dice against the engineer in the bunker only scored one hit. Then, a German Move Out killed an infantry on my right and my remaining bunker in the center. DDB swept the second half of the match, 6-5, 6-5, but I was still the victor for the day.

Diederik, thank you for an excellent match. I look forward to our next meeting.
