Clash of the Mortals (Allied Major Victory)

Post by rkr1958 » Tue Jun 12, 2012 1:36 am

There have been several AARs lately between the Titans (i.e., the GS elites). Experience wise I count myself among the most experienced GS players; however, skill wise I know my place and that place is not among the GS Titans. I thought an AAR between two mere mortals might be fun and informative. Also, I "humbly" consider myself an above average player. But; even so I tend to play the axis a bit better than the allies. So, I do have a personal motive for this AAR and that is to generate constructive criticism from the community on my allied play in the hopes of improving said play.

This AAR is between Leonard (axis) and myself (allies). We just completed a game with me as the axis and Leonard as the allies that ended in a draw! Up until late summer 1944 I was sure I had the game won, only to see my axis crumble like burnt toast. I tried my best to collapse in a manner to give me a minor victory (i.e., still control Berlin and / or Hamburg at the end of turn 105, May 12, 1945). My hope for victory waned up and down through winter '44/'45; but then was all but dashed when I got fair weather (Central Europe) on both February 1 and 21, 1945 (100 & 101) turns. I thought for sure that this was the final nail in my coffin; but regardless I vowed to fight on to the bitter end. Then, when all was seemingly loss, the weather gods who had been so cruel decided to grant me the gift of mud on the March 13, 1945 (turn 102) turn. Oh glorious mud! Why on why couldn't I have had you the previous two turns? But; that was not to be and was now in the past. In turns out that this mud turn slowed the allies down just enough for me to hold onto Hamburg until the last turn of the game. A draw after playing 105 turns! What cruel fates the weather gods bestow on us mere mortals.

The table is set, the meal is prepared and the guest has arrived (though a turn late because of the weather).

Where did all the German PP go? I only spot 3 FTR, 2 TAC and the starting 3 ARM and 2 Mech? With such a late Fall Gelb you can have 3-4 FTR and 3-4 TAC.

There might be some units hiding in the fog of war. Also there are a couple of leaders assigned to german units as well

Why should he get full PP income from Vichy hexes? Also, AFAIK the Free French spawn even if the armistice is rejected.

ATM it looks like the Axis player didn't plan this very well.

He won't get full production from conquered mainland "Vichy" France cites (e.g., Lyons). But; half-production which is a half more than he would get if they were Vichy. If that makes sense.
