My opponent is out of town this week. Hopefully we will finish before I leave town for a few days.

This tends to happen around the holidays. We'll all finish when we can. Play some BF while we wait to practice for the nest tourney.

Yes my game with hidde is almost over,.. I made a few bad moves and misjudged some LOS which cost me my Tiger, but it was still fun. So in the meantime I will be playing the singleplayer France expansion until next round.

I've got a cat and mouse game going with Sleet with about 5 turns left and the Allies slightly ahead in number of units destroyed and flags. However when I say cat and mouse, that's my perception ... Sleet has most probably got a cunning plan ready to snatch it at the last minute.

I don't play a lot of MP and I have never had this happen. I finished my turn and the waiting got to 1:00 and told me it failed to load to the server and try again. Long story short I couldn't get anything to work but killing the game.
I didn't surrender. What now?

Hi Junk

Try going back in and see if it's there - I think (?) this has happened to me on a flaky connection, and when I restarted the game it was sitting there in the state I had left it. Sent it again and it went with no problems.

Cheers

I just tried that and it shows the enemy turn waiting. I guess maybe it went through after all. Or my opponent needs to replay his turn first.

Someone else posted in the tech forum so there must have been a server problem.

Well, PirateJock's Tommies battled the Axis forces and took the win.

Highlights were a well-placed 6pdr. in the same turn, got side shot on a StuG and a REAR shot on my Tiger so that fubared my counter-attack. Fortunately I was at least able to kill the crew with my Panther a little later.

Good work all around by the Allied commander. Only the tally will show the extent of the damage now..

Salute sir!

P.S. I told you I didn't like this map :)

Following on from Sleet's post ... Allies 5 flags: Axis 4 flags; Allies loses 12 units: Axis losses 16 units. Final score 76:16.

A very cagey game - only flag that changed owner was the one right in the middle, and that was on he penultimate Axis turn. Would have been scuppered if the 6pdr hadn't done it's job. Limited number of armour kills on the Allies part as couldn't get the angles and couple of silly mistakes meaning the Cromwells and Archers didn't play much part in proceedings.

Thanks for the game Sleet ... I can relax now :wink:

Very close. Allies ran out of steam at the end. I played a very patient game (well for me anyway) trying not to stumble into crossfire ambushes.

One of the best plays of the game was a Piat team trying to get back to safety. My StuG turned and shot it only to be killed by the Sherman it had battled with on my turn. A lot of shoot and pray moments. A few oops.

Very good opponent. Thanks for a tough fight.

hidde vs LOGAN5

Allied
Kills: 27 = 54
Flags: 8 = 80
Loss: 15 = -45
Win: = 30
Total: 119

Axis
Kills: 15 = 30
Flags: 1 = 10
Loss: 27 = -81
Total: 0

This game saw some fighting on the Allied left flank early on and then it became a standstill in that part of the map.
A push by the Axis in the center came up short. The Panther must have taken ten hits or more before the crew finally bailed out.
However, most of the fighting took place on the Allied right flank. It was all good for the Allied side until the Tiger showed up. In one turn it blew both my Fireflys to kingdom come. It continued to move forward on the extreme right flank. A promoted Sherman were send to meet it's maker...
It was stopped in the end by mortar fire that did lower it's moral surprisingly well and a couple of shots by the 6-pdr. After that an Archer could make the kill.
Without their behemoth and most of the other panzers also destroyed the Axis were doomed...
A couple of hidden infantry units left deep behind the enemy lines by the Axis caused several casualties for the Allies towards the end and even cost me a lost flag.

Happy New Year Folks!

Not a good day (night actually) for the Allies this time :

AXIS (Acererak) : Win (30 pts) + 9 Flags (90 pts) + 30 units killed (60 pts) - 14 units lost (42 pts) = 138 pts

ALLIES (SailingGuy) : 0 pts

Axis Armor might finished all Allied defenses swiftly and the rest of the battle was just a bloody pursuit of Allied units in retreat.

Sorry about that Captain. :oops:
