Re: Man proposes but God disposes (ColonelY & Conboy)

My deepest sympathies, hombre.
A sad, harsh reminder for us all!

King of the Mountain

Remember when you were a kid and somebody put a big dirt pile in the neighborhood? KING OF THE MOUNTAIN was the game where everybody tried to get to the top and the guy on top tried to keep everybody off. Whoever was on top was King of the Mountain. I think this would be an interesting feature for M...

Re: Second Tournament

unitlost -- Usually. It frees up the CPs but sometimes the game doesn't let you buy more if the scenario is set up that way. Check your dead file (casket in the forces view) and see if you can revive one. There's a flat line button you can hit. Mouse over it and it'll tell you how much it'll cost to...

Some Decorations and Terrain I'd Like to See

I'd like to see some more decorations: Destroyed cities AND devastated rural areas (now all we have is the terrain feature of scorched earth - it would be good to have devastated city hexes for scenarios like Stalingrad or late-war Germany or and rural for other areas (Poland, Belarus, China, etc.) ...

Re: The ability of cut off units to sever supply lines needs changing

I vote for no restriction on movement (as-is) and 1-point reduction in strength per turn after 2 turns cut off, if we must do something.

But upon more reflection, I am more inclined to agree with Gabe -- leave it alone.

Re: US 3d ID Beta Round 2

Hidee-ho, ColonelY! Thanks for checking on me and the campaign, good sir. GabeKnight and Mascharenhas made it all the way through and I am incorporating their comments now. I'm on Scen 14 of 20, so it's going. I skipped the next tournament to devote my OoB time to wrapping this up (and I reactivated...

Re: Second Tournament

Hay Shards,
Sorry to do this to you but could you de-enlist me from the second tournament?
My new fly rod just came in and the redfish are biting. I won't have time to provide my opponents with good matches.

thanks!

Re: First Tournament

Maybe I took that too far. Dubno is my favorite pick up game and I do it all the time. And in order to make it work you have to conserve your Charlie Pappas in order to have them available when you need it. Which means you were fighting on limited combat power and still achieved the objective. So yo...

Re: The ability of cut off units to sever supply lines needs changing

I like the idea of taking away one strength point per turn starting on the THIRD TURN after being cut off but I am not in favor of preventing cut off units from attacking supply lines. If they're only cut off from supply for one or two turns turn in PvP, they can make havoc on your supply and turn i...

Re: First Tournament

Karis, bit more experience on certain maps. I was pretty familiar with the first two maps, but this last one kicked my butt. I only did one playthrough on the hotseat. I thought it would be larger version of Dubno, but it is quite different. I certainly didn't expect my opponent to start spewing out...

Re: First Tournament

Shards, Is it the case that you're RP starved by that point, so you spend that RP on repairs? It usually works out that way for me. But for some reason, this time, I was able to buy a beaufighter. It really depends on how ferocious the Japanese opponent is. If the Japanese take the first two towns i...

Re: Map Scale and Size/Make Up of Units

leightwing, This is a perplexing question but the flexibility provides the designer with a huge variety of options. In UoC, the maps are provided, so you always know the scale you are working on but I found that restricting. We have had in-depth discussions on the scale issue before. "Absurd" is in ...
