Last Played:
2018-06-12(A) Andy Beaton vs Jonathan Kay American winRight down to the last CC, a really close intense battle that makes the most of the close in DASL style.
2018-05-06(A) rene cote vs cdoary American winGot my SS in a tough spot and lost two squads as prisoners. Fought them free later but had lost momentum and let an american infiltrate to recapture previously taken buildings (ASL cardinal sin...) which further dispersed my effort. Used smoke and dash as much as possible so kept losses in the streets ok but got locked into one too many CCs that wouldn't end. Joy moment: toasted the sherman with the 'schreck. Great to be on deluxe hexes, no stack mishaps.
2018-01-16(D) Tom Kearney vs Al Saltzman German (SS) win
2018-01-13(A) David Garvin vs Jason Sadler American winGreat game that came to the end. A key Defensive Fire attack (IFT 6+3) was enough to inflict a NMC on a stack of SS, and they all broke. Took 2 turns for them to return. It was enough to block me. Great match!
2018-01-13(A) Andy Goldin vs Jamey Montgomery American winWinter Offensive 2018. I played as the attacking SS against Jamey's elite Americans. Despite the +1 LV Hindrance I took more casualties than I should have simply getting to the first row of buildings so that by the end of Turn 2 it wasn't looking good for me. Luck turned my way on Turn 3, as I managed to get some good fire attacks and have some luck making smoke and passing some key MCs, getting a hero and two fanatic squads from battle hardening. I cleared three of six buildings I needed for victory and got a toehold in the remaining three across the street by the end of Turn 4. Even so, casualties were high and, in a bad sign, both of my fanatic squads broke on NMCs and failed to rally in the next RPh, making them unavailable at a key time. He then rolled up his tank and opened fire at one of my squads which had gotten across the street. Although his first shot hit and I passed the MC, his second (rate) shot was a CH, resulting in a KIA and turning the building into rubble. The CC I had next door ended badly he fired on the building and broke my 338 HS on another 1MC. At that point I no longer had enough forces left to mount another effective try, as I had taken too many casualties in CC, getting across the street and still offline due to MCs or Rallys which I "should have" passed. Game over by the end of US Turn 5 with an American win. Tough scenario on the attacker, IMO. The German player needs to be very good, or very lucky -- or both -- to pull of a win. Note that this scenario isn't in ROAR at this writing, so the W/L ratio is for a different scenario.
