  1. Hello fellow ROW'ers! It's been a while since I played this marvellous game and tell you the truth, haven't yet played a single game of CMBB (have bought it though). I also owe Holien a rematch and as soon as I find time I will contact you and you can try to revenge that dreadful night fight. Still afraid of the dark? KR, I also received my Wines and they costed me about 3$ a bottle. It seems our Finnish Customs is a bit more merciful than yours in Australia. I said to Customs that it was a gift, so I only had to pay the Finnish Alcohol Taxes (or something like that). KR don
  2. I haven't yet wrote my AAR's, but I will try to make them after the holidays... I have a slight problem, coz I play at work too (don't tell anyone). At this point my turn files are in two computers and I have to move all my files to my home computer, so I can make an accurate AAR. Cheers, Ali
  3. Hi H! Sure, I'll get back to you after christmas and lets see who gets whipped. Want a night fight? Cheers, Ali
  4. I'm sorry to inform that I have to withdraw from the tourney. E-mail send to TB155. I'm too busy to participate, but don't worry, you will get a chance to punish me in the next ROW... Okay, Holien it's your turn now. Ali
  5. Hi Frunze! Good point! Yes there where troops at the side (okay, they were in the middle, but side of the right side road), but they were given away when they tried to shoot my HT's. Even a Shrek couldn't fire at the Halftracks coz they where driving too fast. Not a single shot was fired. Trucks came in so late, that they were out of the danger zone. I already had scouted right side at that time. Cheers, Ali
  6. This was my favorite scenario and only one where I could do my favorite mission, Attack! When you attack, you always have the ball in your corner. You decide where you want battle to take place and defender tries to guess where you're coming from. I chose to ram trough the right side road (from allied view). I'll post my AAR to later, but let me say that in this scenario I did my best and luckiest move with my greyhound. I will remember it for a long time. I did drove it to the end of the map and took out a JdgPIV with side shot from 20 metres or so... Left road is too risky IMO. That
  7. I agree, night fights are pain! Outcome is always a mystery. Still I don't believe that front gate would have worked or would be a best choice. I had foxholes placed near the gate and MG placed on the building so that it couldn't be seen from the wall, deep inside the building only facing the gate IIRC. Wise defender can place troops so that wall don't help. Suppress fire from attacking MG may still rattle the defender inside the building, but odds are still on defenders side IMO. I've seen what defending splitted squad can do in the dark. And MG can be protected with more troops inside a
  8. I will make my AAR's later, but here are my thoughts about Lab Rats. I agree with Holien that it was a pity that this night fight decided the victory ...Though I would have whipped you in another scenario anyway H Just kidding Coming through the front gate wouldn't have worked against me (atleast I think so). I though you were coming from that direction and I had MG + platoon leader + squad + half squad guarding that entrance. Main thing for defender is to know where attacker is coming. There was too few troops to cover all the area so I had to split troops and try fin
  9. Santa didn't leave me without presents Thanks for all the organizers, sponsors and my fellow gamers who made this excellent tournament possible. See you all in CMBB... Cheers, Ali
  10. Hi H! Santa lives here in Finland (in Korvatunturi) and he certainly will not leave before we Finns get the presents! Cheers, Ali
  11. Hi H! I think that our section have played all games (unless Capt and Lopis has unfinished game?). Curiosity is killing me, and I like to see do I have a chance Cheers, Ali
  12. Hi lads! KR is absolutely right. Please don't reveal what scenario you're talking about. Not that I thought you would TB155: is there any scoresheet done so far? If so, I'd like to get my hands on it BTW, when is deadline in this one? Cheers, Ali
  13. Yeah, all games finished! Now it's time for a little break...until CMBB tournaments begin... Scenarios were good and I had fun! Thanks to all opponents and Tournament organizers Cheers, Ali
  14. Hi! I don't mind being underdog and I like the fact that you can't be sure what you are up against. If you know the strenght (points used) of your enemy, IMHO you can calculate too much. Risks aren't really risks anymore, coz you have some clue how many points your enemy has 'left'. I like the current system I don't like 'wet' ground conditions and night fights. Too much random involved...hmm..wait a minute...maybe that's why I always do well in those scenarios Cheers, Ali
  15. Lopaka, did you get my last move I sent last week? If you're just busy, then ignore this message Just making sure I have sent you the last turn. Cheers, Ali
  16. Damn, I hoped to be the first one to finish Me and mr.Lopaka has only few turns left and all should be over soon...Send me a turn Lopis Cheers, Ali
  17. 2 games completed (Rats + North And Exit is about 2/3 ready... Cheers, Ali
  18. Hi H! That sounds fair. I will post you my AAR's as soon as I get home from work. Though I only wrote 2 (I'm lazy), but I can give a briefing on others too. Capt and Lopaka, do you want this mail too? - Ali ps. I attack nice and defend poorly
  19. Yeah, we made a dark pact with Mr.Lopaka! I'll be driving my army there in no time...Too bad some of Lopaka's men haven't heard about the pact yet. Strange, I thought german had good communications. Hey, HEY, stop doing that...Why did you shoot my XXX...okay that must be an accident, I'll trust Lopaka and drive on! Clear the way, coming through :cool: Ali
  20. Congrats on the breakthrough! Holien, Capt, Lopaka...Turns on the way. And now when I've seen other scenarios, I know what you mean by turkey shootout Holien Now, Holien let that mouse loose, so I can feed it to my rats... Ali
  21. Eh...Hopefully you still send files to me, even though you seem to be playing some ARI dude as well - ALI [ October 09, 2002, 05:00 AM: Message edited by: Ali ]
  22. I think this scenario got better during time. Start was boring, but that's probably because I played it quite safe and maybe a gamey way When I started this scenario,other scenarios were almost finished. That is why I didn't believe my briefing and expected more troops being on the Axis side. I was right, I dont think this scenario goes into 'assault' category. Or do you feel different fellow Rumblers? First I attacked ONLY from right side of the map, so enemy can't use guns + can't take a direct arty on my men. I advanced quite steadily, keeping my men closely together so they ca
  23. I liked the scenario! It was something different. Most of all I enjoyed the fact that I had to use those Haltracks transporting men in to Lucio hill. Honestly, I don't remember any other scenario that I really HAD to use Haltracks carrying men FAST into another location... That was a nice thouch and those Haltracks did their job perfectly! I lost my convoy, but surviving escort men (how ironic that THEY did survive!) + 75 mm spotter took out the Axis ambush party! Revenge is sweet At the end of game I checked one squad in Axis ambush party. It had 30 kills + 2 vehicles or something
  24. Correct! And after that, just use those FinnishFausts to take care of rest of the tank! - Ali
