I will be gone this weekend and will be unable to check any news being reported to me about results...so please be patient as I will respond by Monday at the latest...Hopefully everyone is at least halfway done by now...

My defeat is imminent, but I am still enjoying the challenge of this tournament.

This has been a lot of fun, at least when we focus on the game it has been.

Thanks for the continued interest and positive feedback.

Blessings on your weekend! :mrgreen:

and as always...Stay Lutheran My Friends

I have defeated signum both as axis and allies on rush to Moscow.

As axis I won on turn 19 by capturing all objectives.

As allied I won on turn 18 by the enemy surrendering

Just as I named my Barbarossa strategy after Zapp Brannigan's kill bot strategy, I name my Moscow strategy after Gaara's Absolute Defense: Sand(conscript) shield strategy. The character Gaara is from the anime Naruto.

My absolute defense strategy really involves 3 parts.

Conscript shied: Use conscripts as a shield to protect Moscow
Conscript tomb: Once enemy is adjacent to Moscow surround the enemy with conscripts
Conscript burial: Once surrounded apply pressure (artillery) and crush (surrender) the enemy

Once the 3rd step in started there is no escape, only certain death.

Notable names have all fallen to this strategy, Urban, Ins07, Robterdam, jimthechip have all see its power and lost. The only exception lifever proved it has a weakness.

If you remaining players could give me an update on where you are at in your match up I would greatly appreciate it.

Here are the results so far:

Thanks for all of the participation and continued interest. Even though I have been eliminated I am still excited to find out the results of this Tournament.
It continues to be fun for me.

Blessings!

Congratulations on your enormous win! That strategy really looks glorious in full effect... those three empty Sturmpanzers next to each other. Signum knows how to stage an epic screenshot! And the watermarks - very original. Awesome effort..

Now since you mentioned our Rush game: Does that mean you are the final member of our team? You sure deserve to be... scoring the first victory member vs member. You won't leave us hanging with a resigned player on the list, now will you? :[

Now I wanted to congratulate you on the 15 turns, which is a really good time against tough competition.
And then you had to put that "Master of Rush" out... *sigh*

If 15 turns are Masterclass... what would you call 10 with 2 turns of rain and one turn of mud? Impossible? I just call it: Living the dream! :D

So if you are interested in getting that master degree certified... the Austrian Panzer Corps University is closed over the summer holidays.. but I can jam you in afterwards. Deal?

I want a space shuttle, but I just got the message by mail "Look at the forum, the cohorts are out..."
"Oh, it's just good ol' Keen again..." :(

Thanks for the reminder, good job! The whole forum is buzzing for weeks now about that incident as you saw.
I had strange people ambushing me in the streets of Vienna screaming at me "Coward! Go back and play Rishat...!" and "You are a disgrace and not a real man!" (they did in german, I translated it) Gladly it seems like a minority.. At least the prime minister of Austria was on my side as he ensured me in an emergeny meeting, but he is younger than I am, so what does he know? Still glad he got me off that tax dodging thingy for an autograph on his panzer corps replay collection (strange... doesn't he do anything else on his airbook retina display?)
So don't worry - I still have to deal with the media and sure won't care about Kiev and ins07 and all your teamefforts directed against me. :)

Dear Keen, is this your best shot? The self proclaimed best Panzer Corps player sure can set up a better distraction - you are better than this, you just have to try harder. Be creative... think out of the box man! Make it happen.
Glad you got your head back into the actual tournament proceedings though...

I honestly expected ins07 to be able to fight his own battles... and with dignity. He acts that way. But I don't hold it against him if he brings the cavalry... Maybe you are still in football fever, 11 guys all pumped after disecting that map for weeks straight to finally score a point. You may have found the first eastereggs there..

Now imagine the irony if you are knocking on the wrong door. :D

No offense please. I didn't mean anything wrong. :D

And this is really the truth - i am the best strategic player ever!
I did not lose to any opponent in any strategic game i played.

The Panzer Corps only one of them. I played 9 or 10 times against tournament players and won all of them for both sides every match. My strongest opponents in my opinion were rishat, Ins07 and Urban.

I just want to play only against the best players. So if you really defeat Rishat then I must fight with you. I am not interested in a medium level players.

Oh, you are looking for the "special school"?
Now actually I didn't know you are in need of assistance on that basic level, but there will probably be some deep dive tutorials for you to find helpful. You can enlist later anytime you feel ready.. :)

That's perfectly understandable. As a solution tournaments were organized.

I'm not going to argue with the truth. :) It's just hard to imagine a grown up person is still interested in the outcome of a game of another dude from weeks prior. It's really really hard to relate to that. That's where my answer was coming from.

Another truth is: It doesn't matter. There is no "one best". There are always some tastes and approaches to be "the best". The best in what exactly? By which rules? So for your logic it shouldn't matter whom somebody beat or did not beat.
That's "martial arts math": If A beat B on day x and B beat C on day y, A will beat C on any given day. Reality more often than not has a problem with that logic because there are more layers to it.
A really great player (in any given game including life) should know that - and I don't mean that as an insult mind you. :)

In other words: Everybody still in the tournament has proven he is at least a very capable player... and although I may be one of the more dominant players around in voicing my opinion or building textwalls - I don't like it when people just make it about one or two posterboys and the rest is just scenery. Everybody on that level is somehow worthy and probably in at least some regards dangerous and interesting to play against. This is a game were this holds true more than in others since you can do funny stuff or have a nice talk... which is much more rewarding than just to play for a result.
There are also players already out of the tournament who are definitely great at it.

I bought the game when the tournament has already started. It was 28.02.2018
Anyway the title means nothing. I know i am the best.

Believe or not I'm for justice. I'm 95% sure that you will lose if you continue the game against Rishat.

If you want we can organize command tournament.
The russian players from our forum against the world best players command.
I mean our command versus world wide command.
But I think it will be a formality and absolutely without a chance for you. :D

What do you think about that? Will you play?

Are some of these guys trolling? Or are they for real?

Seriously...its a game. Does this Keen dude believe the stuff he types or is it a translation issue?

rishat who play this game for years and participated in many tournaments was defeated by a player of 5months and 0 tourney experience ???

Rishat is a very strong player but i defeat him in "Low Countries" scenario for both sides. Нe can confirm that.
I have replays of our battle. That was my fifth play in multiplayer. I still think he was the strongest player in this tournament.

Two more very strong players did not participate in the tournament Leon2210 from Germany and Wolfram1951 from Russia. Each of them I think could win the tournament. I defeated them too.

Not if the other dude is- ehhh- "special" to the other dude, mr Lifever. You do care about that!? Now dont you?

If i was still in tournament. A432 would have killed me in Rush to Moscow bigtime anyway. I suggest you all go out and play some more. Next year all your base are belong to me..
