2018-07-11(A) Jeff B vs Elmo Menon Russian winAll Tigers were eliminated by the end of Turn 2. Without them there is absolutely no way the Germans can stand up to the Russians. Even with them the Germans have no answer for the heavily armored Russian tanks. The best bet is probably for the Germans to setup all tanks in buildings and just sit there concealed as long as possible. At best this makes for an extremely boring defensive game. At worst this one is a complete walkover.
2018-06-29(D) X von Marwitz vs Michael Koch Russian win1945 East Front action with Tigers on the German side and IS-2's on the Russian side. I had the Germans in this one and found it diffcult to come up with a good defence for the situation. My defence may have been sound, alas I overlooked one crucial location for a Russian tank from which he could unhinge my armored defence. To stand up with Tigers to IS-2's is audacious, but without Tiger support, the German infantry is in trouble. I did not contrieve to find a satisfactory solution for the problem, so my opponent won in a pretty straightforward way with his Russians.
2017-10-02(A) Michael Rodgers vs Rob Banozic Russian winGerman player started all Tigers in wooden buildings. Tigers had trouble vs IS-2 armour. Russians hid from Tigers on turn 1. After three turns, four Tigers were gone and one IS-2 was gone. German conceded soon after.
2016-11-05(A) Dan Best vs Carl Nardin German win
2016-03-12(A) Gordon Jupp vs Nick Holmshaw Russian winGreat game that went down to the last CC! The Tiger's were hot to start with and I lost an IS2 to a crit hit on first turn, followed by a second low odds TH/Kill on turn 2 but I managed to concentrate 3 onto 1 and my infantry, despite some knockbacks, managed to claw their way into the requisite number of buildings. Well worth a play!
