Re: Duncan vs Supermax 4.0 charlie (no Supermax please)

so pretty quiet turn as we pursue in Persia and push a bit in Morocco before http://i1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg638/duncanrichards/air%20bef.jpg I think we are getting ahead in the Air war here - despite the dismal performance of UK CV http://i1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg638/duncanrichards/brea...

Re: Duncan vs Supermax 4.0 charlie (no Supermax please)

so Max gets his evacuation of Persia underway http://i1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg638/duncanrichards/persia_3.jpg we do our best to make it a quick retake - mostly we are just focused on attrition of his PP base http://i1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg638/duncanrichards/begins%20persia%20after.jpg M...

Re: Duncan vs Supermax 4.0 charlie (no Supermax please)

unfortunate turn as Max moves Luftwaffe at exactly the right time http://i1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg638/duncanrichards/timing%20wrong.jpg still that offers opportunities in Persia http://i1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg638/duncanrichards/air%20persia%20bfore.jpg which we exploit http://i1247.phot...

Re: GS v4.0 paratrooper issues

I am not sure anything is actually broken - if people don't garrison with ground units then so be it

in reality airfields were a target for "special operations" which although they aren't represented at the games scale it certainly was an activity in WWII

Re: Duncan vs Supermax 4.0 charlie (no Supermax please)

yes offensive will start soon - but in reality this game was lost long ago, the reason for a delayed start to the Russian European offensive is the very poor performance in Russian Labs which has just been dire :-( its bean a really fun game and a good lesson in the changes in v4, but if I had attac...

Re: AAR : Supermax (Axis ) vs Morris (Allies)

yes but, you could easily rationalize that operation as an "outcome" equivalent to LRDG and SAS operations which we don't see at this game scale people will always exploit game mechanisms - in reality you shouldn't be garrisoning a city with plane, undefended cities could be taken by very small forc...

Re: Duncan vs Supermax 4.0 charlie (no Supermax please)

44 dawns and Max goes on the defensive - FTR's are on sentry or being shipped back for the European war, we press in Morocco but go hard in Persia we are a bit disappointed with our attempt to kill the FTR with our joint opp and although the ground war didn't quite go as planned we are pretty happy ...

Re: CEAW 4.0: First Impressions

having been on the receiving end of a lot of lucky weather and successful Blitzkrieg I think its to early to tell if we need to change things what we do know is that the allies have to have a different strategy than previous versions - something I learn't the hard way :-( doesn't yet mean its broke,...

Re: GS v4.0 link PC version only

you need to get the map to recompile - you will have old map .dat files on your machine somewhere that the game is picking up - you need to search your machine and delete all the map .dat files (there will be one for each zoom level)

once they are deleted the game will recompile the maps at start up

Re: Duncan vs Supermax 4.0 charlie (no Supermax please)

43 comes to a close with a pretty quiet turn from Max In Morocco we just upgrade our units and get none from three in our shore bombardments :( http://i1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg638/duncanrichards/43end%20morocco%20after.jpg Persia is equally quiet from Max http://i1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg...

Re: CEAW 4.0: First Impressions

also its the fair weather in 39 with the early fall of Poland, extra units and greater air range that gives the advantage, not the Feb weather - its all over by then. It's going to be reasonably common given its happened in at least two of the v4 AAR's that are being done. happy to play a game if yo...

Re: Duncan vs Supermax 4.0 charlie (no Supermax please)

it was my mistake - I just kept forgetting to move the GAR into the hex - I had it around for the purpose but I have been playing these turns pretty quickly and posting in real time. Max is away so there is a slight delay.

Re: CEAW 4.0: First Impressions

I agree with your comments, but you have the advantage of some other peoples experience :-), knowing what I know now I would just forgo Spain - but that's a big change from previous versions - it was always a very hard task for the Axis to get Spain

Re: CEAW 4.0: First Impressions

so that means you are giving up Spain without an real effort or loss on the Axis and could easily lose the UK to Sealion - just look at Plaids AAR he will take Paris the first fine turn of February, it just takes a bit of fine weather to get to this position - Paris could have fallen Feb 8th it had ...
