Re: The ss too weak

I think with that first sentence, the OP meant real world historical scenarios. The sentence was the introduction to his/her argument that SS should be stronger than regular units in-game, but turn out to be weaker.

Ah, this takes me years back when I discovered numerous fun ways of formatting in Word as well. Good times!

Re: Order of Battle: Sandstorm - Preview stream announced

May 16th is just 1 day after my fiancée's birthday. I don't think she could hope for a better present than the one where she can make me the happiest person on Earth for a month or two. Definitely getting it for her!

Re: Order of Battle - Inaugural MP Tournament Chat Thread

Apologies for getting your nick wrong and I concede. Pillars of Eternity II and a few other games coming out so I really can't be bothered with this anymore. This tournament has been a bit of a disappointment in many aspects (lack of clear rules, maps for round 2,4 and 5 were bad, etc.), and I can p...

Re: Order of Battle - Inaugural MP Tournament Chat Thread

Let's see what ar432 thinks. The point is we need a verifiable way to count the cp lost and replays allow those to be counted from Japanese side only.

Re: Order of Battle - Inaugural MP Tournament Chat Thread

Well, that was quick at least. The two games on Boot Camp finished. We both won as Allies, and lost as Japanese. I won my game on turn 15, and ar432 won on turn 19. Haven't counted number of CP lost, have you ar432? Btw, I find this tie-breaker of "CP lost" to be an odd one given the battle is a two...

Re: Order of Battle - Inaugural MP Tournament Chat Thread

Two games hosted on Bootcamp. The ones on Arctic Fox are up two. Your pick, ar432.

Thanks both.

Re: Order of Battle - Inaugural MP Tournament Chat Thread

I've never played the fork and didn't prepare for it given it wasn't on the announced maps, so not feeling comfortable playing it. Also, Dubno fields is too big for my taste, as I prefer small and quick engagements, rather than massive clashes of 15-20 units on each side. To make things clear on my ...

Re: Order of Battle - Inaugural MP Tournament Chat Thread

Agree with you on tie-breaker- controller of middle at end can be second decider after primary objectives. Erik, what are your thoughts on modding a new map? Perhaps Boot camp? Dubno fields would need some more modding/balancing as the 5k RP start is ridiculous and the fight turns into an outlasting...

Re: Order of Battle - Inaugural MP Tournament Chat Thread

What tie-breakers do you propose? I suggested the above exactly because of the sluggishness of the map- whoever manages to destroy the bunker is player who's won the central battle and who deserves the victory. About changing the map- it's too late in my view for that man. This should've been propos...

Re: Order of Battle - Inaugural MP Tournament Chat Thread

Thank you, Erik and well done a432!

Two games have been hosted with password "a432" as usual. No special rules added. What will be the tie-breaking rules? I propose primary objectives captured as usual, and then secondary objective completed.

May the best arm general win!

Re: What level do you prefer enjoy-ability wise?

I personally played winter war with 4 artillery units. Also, I'd play with 2 fighters, and as far as I remember, the Finns had a nice and cheap strategic bomber that I'd switch for the dive bomber, which was kind of crap.

Re: What level do you prefer enjoy-ability wise?

What's ur core? If u play similar style to PzC, which many people do and r focusing mostly on armoured units, then ull be struggling indeed.

Re: Order of Battle - Inaugural MP Tournament Chat Thread

The other game felt more decided in my favour, but he continued playing a turn that I have not reviewed yet as according to the rules, round's over.

Re: Order of Battle - Inaugural MP Tournament Chat Thread

dolphin0810 has resigned from one of the games, which according to rules set out means full resignation from tournament. Thank you for the games, dolphin0810, I thought the game wasn't decided but I'm glad you thought otherwise!

Re: Order of Battle: Sandstorm - The Italian armed forces

It's most than what other similar games offer to be fair, so why not be happy for a change.

Re: Order of Battle - Inaugural MP Tournament Chat Thread

Btw, Erik, could you help soothe a432's mind, and confirm whether we should use "Custom Starting Force" or not?
