  1. Moscow fell after much fighting. Calculon had strong units well entrenched all around and I had to send the bulk of the wermacht, all panzers, best HQ , etc and wait for supply to catch up. In a case like this, you must go for the HQs first. Calculon had 3 HQ there. Going straight for the city, if shorter, would have been way too expensive and the time apparently saved is lost anyway because you have to replenish your armies and they lose their precious experience in tough frontal assaults Once the russian HQs are gone even at some cost, the remainder can be wiped out easily. Notice I did
  2. Round1 Allies (Calculon)vs Axis (Monsterclaude) May42: Germans on their way to Stalingrad. Leningrad just fell after a long siege. Bakou should soon fall. Russians have regrouped around Moscow with shorter supply lines and well entrenched units. Now, Russians have Lev3 tank but many German units, HQ as well, have now 2-3 stars experience giving them the edge in every combat. Experience is the key for tactical superiority. Even if your opponent outsmart you with his moves and deployment, he won't be able to kill your units. At least, he will need a lot of buddies for the task. Med is
  3. Round 1 Allies (calculon) vs Axis (Monsterclaude) August 41. Barbarossa started. Put my artillery in front of Brestlitovsk. Bad choice. Kaunas is a tougher nut to crack and right in the middle of my supply path. Artillery should be have been sent there instead. Calculon chose to build russian units at the detriment of tech research. Very long term bad choice! Russian units without tech or HQ are nothing but cannon fodders. Notice my level3 tank. I could have attacked earlier but I was waiting for that just in case Calculon had lev3 too. He, then could have easily trade his own tank
  4. ROUND1 Allies Calculon-Monsterclaude Axis I got very lucky to take Paris after many tough relentless attacks in the past turns. Finally one army reduced to 1 managed to cross the Seine bridge and parade in Paris rumble! France surrenders in May and I accept Vichy. Calculon must have regretted to hold back the Brits. It sure would have made a difference. But GB is untouched except for few mpp sunk by my U-boat, less than 80 I think. Calculon has a very good patrol system, my subs cannot find any Atlantic holes. In Africa, Italians and Brits are quiet waiting for the outcome of the french ca
  5. Round 1 Allies Calculon-MonsterClaude Axis In Asia same stuff. I had to reshuffle japanese units in 1939. Axis Strategy there is as simple as this: attack all the way! China should not have any respite. Calculon stays cool and we both notice it won't be that easy for the Japs. Chinese boys are well entrenched and my Japs suffers more than expected. Still I got some progress by June40
  6. ROUND 1 game Allies Calculon-MonsterClaude Axis Usual opening moves in fall 39. Poland fell in November39 because I left 3 polish units alone. I did not want to waste time over there because I wanted a quick conquest of Netherland and Belgium in a vain hope to catch the French unprepared. Despite my best effort, I could not attack Benelux before December. Calculon had already a defensive line by then but, fortunately for me, had no british units behind so he could not use any unit to interfer without breaking his line. In fact ,Calculon elected not to bring any british forces on Fr
  7. As we are getting closer to the 2nd Round, I guess many players have completed games. I suggest they share their experience with us in this thread. While full AAR might be too much work for most of us including me, it would be great if you guys come up with some report or descriptions of your games, finished or not. No need for pictures but you bet it is welcome! Wargaming is not just about some jeeks staring at a computer screen in the darkest corner of a room. It is mostly living an adventure just like watching a superb movie or reading a good entertaining book. If you want this tourn
  8. Ready to play about 1 turn a day, any side until the tournament in September. Then, I suppose 1 turn every 2 days would be my best effort. Still not sure if my pm box works properly so you can answer here or to my e-mail adress. cdesmarais2000@videotron.ca
  9. Not convinced by that move in Madagascar. Given the current situation in the Med and the storm coming over India, there is an emergency out there. Reinforcement has to be sent or bought right now otherwise both will be overrunned. As the main attacker for the first 3 years, the Axis player will use insight in the game for somewhat unfair moves. He knows allied units strength and location as they become available through scripts or decision so he can set his offensive accordingly with few options left for the Allies player. A good example is India. The country is so big you need a lot of
  10. Good enough for me, my friend! In fact, I was a bit surprise you came back with another request for a game after Brianlala offer. I'm even more surprised that no other one showed up here over the last 2 weeks! I guess nobody wants to go blind into the ring. They should'nt be scared since those who played Gold will be on familiar ground , no lost in the space effect. By the way, don't know why my pm box coudn't get your message. Settings are ok for what I checked. So have a thrilling challenge with your game partners and don't forget there is a tournament coming!
  11. Hi AshesfFall! Aren't you playing with Brianlala? Anyway your conditions suit me well as I'm pretty busy myself. I did enjoy your AArs a lot and would be glad to discover AOD with you. Maybe I could convince you to join the tournament by the Summer end. To be honest, I have to evaluate if I can play both you and my tournament opponents when we hit September so there is a risk I might drop my game with you. Would you take the risk anyway? On the other hand, playing AOD, wether we complete our game or not, is the best way for both of us to learn it and improve our gameplay for next times.
  12. Abudeke, I'm curious how your going to cross the allied doubleline since I chose exactly the same defense in my hotseat and it has been very costly for the Germans not counting the numerous bristish smaller units Happycat could deploy near Paris. Hey Happycat, I suppose the French Tank should be in Paris at level 6 entrenchement, trust me, it works. Now its bit late but who knows you may have other cards in your sleeve. At first glance, I felt the French were too weak at the start but have to admit a well dug-in french/british line behind the Seine plus a doubleline on the borders may push t
