Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

IIRC I stated the rule to my opponent when I sent him my setup. Just to make sure he knew and that he knew that I knew the rule. I always have done this to make sure we're both on the same page. I also recommend doing so.

I pre-plotted my arty strike for turn 10 so that I would catch the Soviet troops approaching the church,

You're not one who likes to follow rules given in the briefing, like the one about "NO DELAY" given three times (!) on pages 1, 3 and 4 of the briefing, eh?  Rollende ogen  :'(


I just read this, and obviously DID not read the rules... lol!

Was a bad rule IMHO anyways.

: )

Cheers!

Well, that is a pretty lame admission.   Geschokt

After 7+ years of CM, it is a bit difficult to break new ground with scenarios (not that I claim to have broken any new ground with this one!!!  Smiley ).   That is why some scenarios I design have "special rules."  The least you can do is offer your opponent a fair game!

Lesson learned from me in the design perspective is to include a new suggestion in briefs (That is if people read them in the first place!) and that is that both players CONFIRM their understanding of any "special rules" during the set up phase.  That way on turn 10 there can be no misunderstanding.  I suggest this to all players of any scenario with any special rules.

I'm working on a two-battle operation now that has "play as they lay" rules and I had this incident in mind when I wrote the brief:

**  Players should confirm with their opponent during the set-up phase that they understand the rules and will follow them.  **

Good luck to all in future games.   Smiley

Cheers,
Bannon


For all of you that feel the need to condemn me for both my honesty and my A.D.D. afflicted bad habits of not reading through rules thoroughly and comprehensively, please note: I lost this battle.

IF anyone feels the need to question my integrity further, I am more than happy to lay down my arms and leave the tournament.

It's always so easy to throw the stones...

Cheers!

Im on Letos side here in a way, I lost this one too BTW.  No offence to the designer as he designs a lot of good stuff, but this scenario should probably not have been entered in a Tourney of this nature as its just too random.  I would probably have enjoyed it more as a bit of a fun scenario but leaving so much to chance in Tourney play was, I think, the wrong decision.

Sorry for being blunt but as has been said, this is a straight race, first one there should win the match.

This isn't the kind of scenario I like. I found it too slow. The forces weren't very challenging too.

As said before: the first one who got to the church will win. Since I was the first, I did win. The fact that one of the big 210mm shells luckily hit a Russian squad did help.
