Yes - it does have other qualities, however - not that it matters what armies we have if I play you.

Funny if you play the Rus though.

Actually, it'll make a pleasant change to see you with a man's army rather than one that just runs away and hides in the corner.
If that is not 'the pot calling the kettle black' then I do not know what is! :-)

Re: Players in East Kent UK

Ian My daughter is starting Uni at Canterbury this year. If I am going to be down there and at a lose end, while mother and daughter spend some 'quality time' together (I want to be far enough away that I can't hear the rows...), I will drop you a line. Regards Tim OK cool - I am 20 mins from Cante...

Players in East Kent UK

HI

Find myself in the backwater of East Kent (Herne Bay) - anyone else trapped here that would like a few games of FoG?

Re: International Team Challenge - Lisbon - 1/2 Sept 2012

I am not defensive about the bhgs drawmeister i am derisive of it. There is far too much don't lose mentality in some quarters. I feel the US team (two that I spoke with anyway) were very surprised at the level of aggression from the GB team based upon the reports they had previously received on pl...

Re: International Team Challenge - Lisbon - 1/2 Sept 2012

I would offer you the same complement Ian or even a higher one. You come to play and win and you are going to wade in and not mince about. It is why you are respected as a foe and consider a good fellow to boot. We played back in DBM and that was more your style then too IIRC. It is why you do well...

Re: International Team Challenge - Lisbon - 1/2 Sept 2012

Currently someone who 'draws' could get 28 points. This means they would have lost nothing and been 1 or 2 AP, 10%, from breaking the enemy army. Thats a very good performance. Nobody who 'loses' or gets a losing draw could get a higher score than someone who breaks their enemy. Sure there are lots...

Re: International Team Challenge - Lisbon - 1/2 Sept 2012

I think there is always some delay in adopting to a new system. I guess we disagree on this point Well you will always have team strategies that call for defensive play. Also you were probably the absolute best player at the event, so they had two choices. Jamming into your army and hoping to take ...

Re: International Team Challenge - Lisbon - 1/2 Sept 2012

The main problem is the possibility of collusion. "Lets just SAY we had a mutual destruction and get 20 points each". T%herefore any game where it looks like both players may score over 17 points must have an umpire call before game end. A trivial matter and easy for the umpire to do. Also I think ...

Re: International Team Challenge - Lisbon - 1/2 Sept 2012

I got a score that was about 8-10% better as a percentage of maximum score under this system compared to 25-0. Therefore I think it worked. :D I do think it is better. Two players who go for it having little of their armies left at the end of the game will score higher than those that are risk aver...

Re: International Team Challenge - Lisbon - 1/2 Sept 2012

I also thought the scoring was good. For example in one game I broke my opponent's 11 BG army in the last turn. But I had lost 14 points (including baggage) out of my 15 BG army. So the result was something like 21-19 to me which fairly rewarded my opponent for almost breaking me. It could have gon...

Re: International Team Challenge - Lisbon - 1/2 Sept 2012

What did players think about the different scoring system? Did anyone keep track of how the scores would have been under the normal Fog System? I got less points under this system - 100/120 (83%) whereas I would have got 87/100 (87%) using the 20+5 system. Not really that bothered - I do not think ...

Re: terrain morality

Apparently most of the replys know exactly what game and what players this post refers to. Me on the other hand don't have a clue to any of that. I don't see an issue or ANY moral compromise. Your post reads as if it's glaring and obvious how the player "disgraced" themselves......I can't see it. I...
