  1. I was playing a guy recently in a no-flag tournament. After 20 turns neither of us had left our good cover, and no action aside from me knocking out two of his recon jeeps with MG fire. We agreed to a ceasefire - I was thinking "draw" - lo, to my surprise - I was given a Total Victory! The score is figured by percentages of points. Though I had only killed two jeeps, they represented 100% of the casualties since he did not kill any of my units. There were no flag points to figure in - thus - 100%-0% Total Victory. That was crazy...

    Well I don't see how hiding the T-34 would have helped since hiding reduces spotting ability. My tank was still when it was hit - not in the process of turning-

    IME hidden units spot perfectly fine, infantry, tanks, guns, whatever; so hiding your T-34 would be a good idea, IMHO. Prevent rotating the turret is another since it defeats the purpose of hiding in the first place. Be carefull when setting a coverred arc. </font>
  3. Well I don't see how hiding the T-34 would have helped since hiding reduces spotting ability. My tank was still when it was hit - not in the process of turning - but one point is true - there could have been German troops in the field - with exteme FOW I can't tell yet...probably should have put my screening squads on "move to contact" towards the sound to remove more of the risk....

  4. Situation: My T-34 hears a german vehicle (sound contact) crossing a field at night. I order 2 squads of infantry to set up about 10 meters out in front of the T-34, facing the sound. The T-34 rotates toward the field and stops - it is unbuttoned with an armor cover arc facing the field. Result: next minute after a few seconds I hear a "bang" "thud" - my T-34 is dead. Then some open topped german crap vehicle appears in the field right where the T-34 was facing. How could he possibly have seen me first and how could this be avoided in the future??

    Borg spotting only works in the Command phase. During the Go-Phase, Borg Spotting does not work as units seem to be calculated individually with the TacAI.

    In the green bar phase the AI issues its command. In the blue bar phase the TacAI is calculated.

    I use this knowledge to time my moves. Closing hatches in the first seconds of a turn, then hunting up into shooting positions with an additional reverse command issued. Next turn I delete the hunt command and have a zero-delay reverse command before my tank becomes the target of anything with LOS.



    Can you expound on this? What do you mean by green bar/blue bar phase? What bars are you referring to? Also, how can you delete your hunt command when your reverse comand comes after it?
  6. I smell a rat. I've been advancing quickly on my opponent in the operation "Mobile Defense" - he had no units left at the end of our last battle battle and suggested a "ceasefire" which would move us on to the next battle. Well, it did all right - with me back at the start line from the previous battle - all of the ground gained from the battle had been lost. Is this normally what happens when you "ceasfire" during an advance op?
