Bugs, or place to put them? Mon, 23 March 2020 14:55
Veteran of the tabletop. Played via this medium for the first time and encountered three bugs in as many scenarios:

1) On Point du hoc, first move, my opponent played some card like "Behind Enemy Lines." It was move (ignoring terrain), attack (terrain in effect), then move again. Movement went as expected, but he attacked with infantry at range 1, uphill, into a defended bunker with three dice. Should have been 1. Obviously, terrain was ignored for combat as well.

2) On First Assault Wave, opponent attacked my bunkered artillery and rolled a flag. Per rules, this inflicts a casualty. It did not.

3) On Mont Mouchet (this one I'm still unclear on) my special forces german tanks attacked into forest with two dice. Forest should reduce dice by 2, and so far as I know special unit tanks do not get an extra die. It seems it should have been 1. Later, when doing a similar attack with tanks into the woods on a "Their Finest Hour" card, I also attacked (correctly) with two dice. This was weird and inconsistent.

Hi Foodlion,

There are some rules that are not correctly implemented by the computer game, but in this case I think there is nothing wrong.

1) Infantry in close assault only gets 1 die reduction so normally 3, because of defense 2, because of Behind Enemy Line 3 again.
(Maybe there is some confusion about the bunker o the hill. The Hill gives minus 1 and the bunker minus 1, but in Memoir'44 those defenses do not stack up. Only the highest counts. See page 16 of the basegame rules. )

2) The rules for a bunker are: " A unit in a bunker may ignore the first flag rolled against it." (same page of the base game rules, last bullit-point of Bunkers.) So normally you get a question if you want to ignore the flag or not. But it might be that the artillery does that automatically, assuming that you want to stay alive.

3) I have not been given an extra die for armor shooting into the woods in the over 5000 games I have played in Memoir'44 online. Special forces or not. So only if you played an armor assault or a close assault and attacked in close assault this would have been possible. Might it have been one of those cards?

Hope this helps Smile

I looked at your replay and found the turn in question here:

https://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/battle/?id=7 8381847#replay:turn=6

You conducted two attacks on that turn. The first was by your infantry vs infantry in woods for a 2d attack. Then your panzer fired from range with what was a correct 1d attack.
