Round 5 Tactics.
« Reply #50 on: August 25, 2005, 12:27:59 PM »
The maths looks right, I gave an extra 200 in my head by accident. Still had the perfect score being 1800 (from the Kaltenbach modifier wich doesnt apply to TUW).

T-Land have last minute posts showing their commitment to Udo's from another of their big hitters.

Hellblaster can still blow Kaltenburg away with just 3 perfect scores and he has the ability to post 5.

We are closing in on the cut off time.

Talabecland have just put up 4 reports with 4050 points at Udo's - I think that still leaves them about 1500 points behind, but it is quite good timing as any STirland points now may be attracted to Udo's.

As to timing our reports - tricky ??

I reckon probably somewhere in the next 2-3 hours.

I'm watching too....................

Posting together Rorrak ???

Yep Helblaster looks the Key - if he is tempted to put a couple at Udo's we could blast TUW, and feel safe-ish.
I'm not good on his timezone? Is he going to be awake?


I still think TUW is more important - Stirland are still the biggest threat and if we can deny them a location - we can sit back for 2 rounds and hammer Bechafen.

Read through Hellblasters posts and get the feeling he is American.

Just time of day and Baseball references, his location is hidden.
East coast by the tone in his posts. (This is highly subjective though).

Its 9:30am East Coast ? and 6:30 am West ?

This could be why he hasnt posted yet.

The General will probably feel a leeway from Rise and Shine for the American posters is in order for a fair shake. That would make the 2 hour mark probable.

California - his brother is Daniel Hellion.

Earliest posts I can see are about 4.00pm GMT. Which would be about 6.00pm General H's timezone?

Interesting - if he has 5 big battles he could swing the whole round -

However has episteme over posted? One of the reports shown is a skirmish [250pts], but has he posted 6 battles?

glad we could be of service. :wink:

Though maybe you're right the fervour is probably a bit over the top - so are the other factions making you laugh too, or are they less worked up.

Just  checking in I have two reports, a solid against empire using the scenarios and a minor against orks also using the scenarios. I can post in the next half hour or wait  4 hours. Your call let me know.

I think we should get bonus points for this... Or at least a bit of it in the fluff..  :-D

I can just imagine 8 generals with their respective armies standing poised to overrun the small valley that hides their objective... One big push with everybody working together. 8)

rha - if you cannot do it inside 4 hours that may be too long - I would post them now to the Watchman.

And BANG!  the roll of thunder was heard ... The clouds darken and foul weather close in over the field...

The fighting soon got even dirtier and gritty, but then generals knew that they would get no further this day... Better to recall what was left of the troops before too many casualties occured attempting to simply stand up on the myddy field...

Batrep forum is closed.. I guess we waited just a smidgeon too long.

nah... several seconds to spare...

And that marks my most active round so far....

I somehow feel that i didn't make a difference anyway...

I just hope i get to fight nearly as much in the comming days... only problem is that I am trying to train a friend of mine for a turney (i didnt sign up my self in time)

And he is tired of getting beaten up by my Empire troops... he wants to try his luck against other armies, so I have to play a few games as skaven against him in the comming days... so I might have trouble fitting in battles with good bonuses...

I believe holding back the posts means we didnt get them all posted.

It does mean we could have more for next round but it also means we didnt get TUW.

Ahh well thats how the cookie crumbles. I really expected two games myself this week and neither game off.

Typical - I nip out for an hour to the Dentist, log off and then the round ends.

So now we are all back where we started from with 3 locations each - far be it for me to suggest conspiracy theories - but you wonder how convenient? :wink:

Maybe we should suggest the Tally Man doesn't snoop in the faction forums for the rounds tactics. :wink:

I think I've almost had enough of this. I think from now on I'll just throw everything at Bechafen........

actually if everyone did that what would happen.............

Bechafen
« Reply #70 on: August 25, 2005, 06:04:59 PM »
I say we put all of the current unused battles into Bechafen now.  That should draw of the unused battles others have. We then build up a sizable amount of extra battles posting enough at the watchman to get the others interested and the first thing tuesday morning we hit Bechafen with every massacre and solid win we can muster. If nothing else it will bring the campaign to its rightful high point the fight for Bechafen.
