Situation Report:
November 12, 1941
German and Soviet forces prepare for the coming battle at Stalingrad.

Results from Turn 6:
Soviets earn +100 points Germans earn +50 points - these will effectively neutralize except the Soviets will be given a 50 point unit 'fixed' advantage in the coming battle for Stalingrad.
Germans prevent loss inside the Reich and take Moscow.

Implications of Turn 6:
Any actions in the North are negligible and the Center is now effectively closed. The only meaningful battle now is Stalingrad.

A special map will be set using the amazing work of Amaris for the final battle at Stalingrad. Players will be matched up for an overall fight for the most objectives to determine the winner in the city.


Turn 7 - The final battle : Stalingrad
--------------------------------------------

German FM determines matches as follows...

Brummbar44 (FM) :1 vs. MacD2013 (FM) : 1

Celeborn : 6 vs. JagBRLobo : 0 - complete

Morge4 : 3 vs. cavehobbit : 3 - complete

Scole : 0 vs. Burgot : 6 - complete

Real : 0 vs. Gibrinskii : 6 - complete

Random27 : 5 vs. glenghiscan : 1 - complete



CURRENT OBJECTIVE COUNT
-----------------------------------

Germany = 15 : Soviets = 17





Stalingrad Battle File - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/812 ... ingrad.LST

Forces are even in points with the Soviets starting with a 50 point unit advantage.

German player sets up match with the password - barb

Objective - Capture as many flags as possible then report back here with the results. The side with the most flags will be considered the winner.

Ideally we need to report in with results no later than Feb. 14th

Good luck everyone and good hunting!

We Want You!

Now Recruiting for the Eastern Front.

Join as either the Axis and attack into the East or the Allies and defend the Motherland.

This Multiplayer Campaign League requires at least two Field Marshals (up to 3 per side) to decide what forces to use in what battle and determine which General to assign those forces to.

We also require Generals to take up the fight.

Post here with your side and rank preference.

Excellent! We're off to a good start then.

Just worked out a bug in the Army Lists so they should work now. Finalizing the Campaign information book...so that will be coming shortly.

Should be fun!

If you need another player, I'm in. General rank will be enough for me and I'd like to defend the Motherland.

Perfect! I think we have a good number to start...again, we can add in Generals as we go.

Any volunteers for Field Marshals? You still get to play, you just get to decide who fights where and with what forces (ideal for players who have a good appreciation of other players skill levels etc...).

I'll track the use of forces and results etc... I'm happy to play as a General as I think that will keep me busy enough.

Morge4, glenghiscan...care to FM?

I definitely think morge as the abilities for field marshal due to his input in navaroneguns race to Tunis campaign over on ba1 some years ago as for myself I think I'm more suited as a general if needs be ill attempt field marshal but as word gets around a bit a new tournament I'm sure there'll be better candidates

Ok, thanks and good points. I'll slot you in as FM if nec. (I can also take on the role).

I had thought with our numbers, we could simply assume an Army group...but then we would in essence be fighting the same opponent all of the time so it might be best to stick with the FM roles.

Let's see what Morge4 decides...

Thanks Morge4. It's all very experimental at this point and it's all for fun anyway.

So unless you mind horribly, I'll assign you German Field Marshal.

Glenghiscan it would be great if you could take the role of Soviet Field Marshal? If that's ok, we can get things underway.

I'm still trying to think of the best way to receive the 'orders' of what units and Generals are fighting where...so if anyone has any suggestions, much appreciated. edit: I have an idea on this...will post on return.

Short term, the Soviet FM doesn't have to decide on units this first Skirmish (they are all Line Divisions) but let me know which commanders are assigned to what Army Groups. Same for German FM with the addition of what Divisions (remember, 3 Pz Div. total per Army and only 1 SS Div. per...once destroyed, they are out of it!).

Note; Army Group Center can conduct two attacks into F85 and Ur65. Or decide just decide on one, Ger. FM call.

Are you going to create closed rooms for each side? or do we just want to communicate via PM?

Re: B44 for BA2 - Multiplayer Campaign League

Good question Morge4...

I'm not sure how to set up the closed rooms...but here is my latest line of thought on setting the matches that may not make it necessary...

I've updated the Campaign Map with the indicating coordinates now. So FM's can indicate what is where easily.

I'm thinking...

1. Soviet FM would openly indicate what Divisions will be where.
2. The German FM would then indicate openly what Divisions and Generals will fight at those locations.
3. The Soviet FM then openly assigns his Generals and the matches can then begin.

Private communications would still be good to strategize but can anyone see a major problem with the method above?

Offhand that seems to be a good method...

Since there are only three assigned to a team at this point, I would like to only choose one battle for Army Group Center, F85. If we get more members, then later on we may do more than one battle in a sector.

Roger that.

Because the Soviets are all Line Div. the Soviet FM doesn't need to declare his forces...so it's up to your strategic call on the attack and which Generals are assigned where.

Any questions, just post.
