Since it seems to crop up a lot, below is the Official Marat Explanation

Marat Gunnery Platform Clarification: The first time that Marat would be reduced to 0 hull points, if she is by a coast or island, she is immediately assigned 2 additional hull points and remains in play. Marat may be attacked again during that same phase by Gunnery, Bomb, or Torpedo attacks. Reducing Marat to 0 hull points for a second time removes her from the game at the end of the phase.

If Marat survives the phase during which Gunnery Platform is activated, she starts the next phase with a Speed of 0, -1 on each attack dice, and -1 armor and vital armor. She can no longer be damaged by torpedoes.

Once Marat is a Gunnery Platform, reducing her to 1 hull point does not add any additional penalties over those already assigned. In other words, she is already crippled and cannot be crippled a second time.

Marat may still capture and contest Objectives as a Gunnery Platform. Hint: do not let her start the Sub Phase as a Gunnery Platform on an Objective! Smile

Example: During the Air phase, two Ju-88s are placed in sector with Marat. The first Ju-88 vitals Marat while she is next to an island. Marat comes back into play with 2 hull points.
Scenario 1: The second Ju-88 torpedoes Marat scoring a hit. Marat is removed from the game at the end of the Air Attack phase.
Scenario 2: The second Ju-88 misses Marat. Marat begins the Surface Attack phase as a Gunnery Platform with a Speed of 0, -1 on each attack dice, and -1 armor and vital armor.

Ranks

Ranks are achieved by earning points through online play.  For a match to qualify 80% of the total points spent to build the fleet must be Soviet or approved Lend Lease Units. Current Club Red Memebers that are also in Club Frozen Seas of Club Med can count their Theater Matches as non league wins for Club Red if they wish. Provided that their fleets are comprised of at least 80% Soviet or Lend Lease units.

1-Point is awarded for any match participated in, in season or out.
1-Point for a victory in a non National Club League match.
2-Points for a victory in a National Club League match.
Points accumulate, so a National Club League victory is worth 3 points, an non league win is worth 2.

Club frozen seas covers the SU as a theatre club but no solo nation.

I wonder if we could have a twin banner club for SU and Sweden since there is limited interest in both
squint181

Going to start the process of posting all the great custom cards.  These of course will not be tournament 'official', but the other national clubs are being to incorporate them so I believe we should follow suit.  Can be used in matches where both opponents are allowing Custom Cards.

All Soviet cards can be used without restriction.  Any foreign cards must use the 1 per 50 point Lend Lease rule.

Special thanks to SWO, Enabrantain and all other card makers for their time and talent.

I'd abandon CUSN for a Club Red (sorry SWO - US seems to have enough players). Smile
firesdstny

Club Red has been an idea kicked around for awhile but has never seemed to have the backing necessary.

I am fully in support of the formation and participation of Club Red.  I will not be jumping ship from Club RM (the only member waving the banner in matches at the moment), but think Club Red is long overdue.

The absence of a Soviet home is one of the things that prompted the initial commissioning of Club Frozen Seas.  Back then we didn't quite have the unit list available that we do now.  So HERE HERE to club Red!  And I'm ok with combining Club Swede in there also if that helps both clubs get off the ground.
squint181

I have considered Club Frozen Seas for next fall, but my only issue is that they don't accept Black Sea units.  If TN puts out a Tashkent or PK card, they would both join the Molotov as, in theory, unusable.  

If there are not any objections from the other Clubs about a mixed nation Club, adding the Swedes would benefit the unit list.  The Gustav and Goteburg would be nice, while the Gotland would be beneficial to bump up those notoriously bad Soviet gunnery stats.  Add the Vindicator and RE.2000, and you have another fighter and cheaper bomber options.  There are probably others as well, I'm just not that familiar with the Swedish Military.

Would a -1 init penalty acceptable for mixed fleets, or is that too much?  Is ClubRed an acceptable name, or should I work the Swedes into the name.  

Again just asking around, seeing what others think.
gman75

I saw this post a couple weeks ago, i think it's a good idea. I would join if it came to fruition.
firesdstny

hmm, the clubs are a bit in hiatus right now, so it might be a touch difficult to get your question answered.

I don't think a -1 init penalty needs to apply.

With the CFS issue RE: Tashkent etc. - that was some of the fallout from the Club restructurings.  We used to include blanket Soviet Coverage, but when it switched to theatres we claimed the far north which did cut off the Black Sea.  Club Med picked them up, which gives them a fairly decent unit selection possibility for
SWO_Daddy

I think you leave the Swedes out (the damn Gotland!), but potentially add the Romanians.  Soviets+Romanians or Soviets+Poles+Romanians.
squint181

I could see Romain units in the mix.  It may be the best chance to see the Regina Maria in action.  Could be used in open year or post 1944 games.  

The Polish would be great, but could it be justified.  The Soviets seized the Romanian navy and recommissioned their ships.  But Polish would have numerous reasons not to fight along side the Soviets.  I suppose the argument could be made that they ended up under communist rule after the war, so the Club Red tag would fit.  Does this mean we could claim any Chinese units that might show up some day?

The Swedes could go either way for me.  If it meant more people would consider joining a dual club, that would be the main reason I would want their inclusion.  But they are not a make or break factor.  I would happily go without.

As far as it being off season for the Club Teams, what a better time to get the ball rolling.  Already a few brave souls have show some interest in joining.  If we could get this up and running  a few mounts in advance, we could have time to work out the details, solidify membership and get some pre matches in.  Nothing like striking some fear in your opponents before the battles start for real.
SWO_Daddy

My thinking is the Romanian units got seized by the Russians in late 1944.  In 44 or 45 games, why not? Smile

Definately a good time to fire things up.  I think there used to be a requirement to have X number of people to make a club "official", but these days, some clubs are functioning with only a couple of active players.  We don't millions of little clubs, but a Soviet club in the National League seems like it just "should be".  They are the only one of the "Big 7" not represented there yet.  

My only caution is not to pull in so many outside navies that this starts to look like a rehash of a theature club.  Nothing too restrictive though (lend lease in particular seems prudent to me).  Just something to think about.

What he said.  The clubhouse president is currently AWOL (actually I know where he is but he's just too busy at the moment).

When CFS formed we threw the Poles in with the USSR because both were small and we used the logic that the Polish ended up in the Eastern Bloc anyway.  We have managed to protect that fragile link.

I think giving Club Red the Romanians is an awesome way to bring a minor to the party while keeping a different identity from what is out there.  USSR lend lease on a few ships/planes (Edsall, Richmond, Vospers, B24, B25, Catalina, ) are still important as well.  At least until TP/TN/T? fill in some other holes.
squint181

Precisely my thought.  Romanians, though restricted to 1944 or later, would be a good addition.  I like both the Swedes and Polish, but are probably a step too far.  One was neutral, the other had good reason to hate the Soviets. Now Club Easter Front is an idea, but one thing at a time.

The unit list I made up is more of a what they could have, not should have.  The U-Boat especially.  And most of those fighters were possibilities, but I could see the Warhawk as the  one to be included.  I was just messing around with ideas.

As for TP/N/?, I would assume that anything they do takes precedent over a stand in Lend Lease.  ie, Murmansk replaces Richmond, Soviet Catalina over PBY or Black Cat, Tallin over Butcher ect.  Those can be used as stand ins until an official card is released.
firesdstny

quite right.

I didn't include the P40 in my list merely as an oversight.  CFS allows the P40 and the Russians liked it historically.  For me the LL Hurricane is pretty close and so a good substitute.

With CFS (and most other theatre clubs) we use a  lend lease allowance of 1 unit per 50 points in the build.  So 6 lend lease units (USN air, UK torp boats, USN DD's) would be allowable in 300 points.  Typically for me, if I need/want LL somewhere else, I'll take the LL Hurri rather than the P40.
.....
Club Eastern Front seems more like a theatre club to me.  You're a bit better with a national perspective to be more narrow-minded.

The theatre clubs are pretty well regimented - there's not likely to be much support for a new one of those - most territories are already fairly well covered (and a few already "overlap").

Actually, Fires, that's the first I'm hearing of it, and there's nothing on the Club home page to reflect that.

Soviet Navy: Builds can consist of any combination of Soviet and Polish units.  The Soviets also have four lend-lease aircraft available to them which they historically used: P-40, Sea Hurricane, B-25 Mitchell, and PBY. No Limits.


That would seriously cut into the Russian air builds in certain years before the Sturmovik is available...
firesdstny

*egg on my face*  I thought we had a limit.  My bad.  That's what you get for not double checking...
Brigman

No worries, I just play the Soviets in CFS a lot... so if there was a limit put in, I'd never seen it.

Frankly, that kind of limit would really hurt the Russians in certain years.  The Lend-Lease air is all that lets them have any kind of air threat.

I'd be tempted to join Club Red, but if I did that, I'd have to quit Club IJN... and then probably move from CFS to Club Pacific... not a terribly great idea

gman75

Anyone else?
squint181

Brigs showed some interest, but I'm not goign to hold him to it.  I have a forumini member who I could strong arm into joining to get the numbers, I would rather not though.  Regardless I think it is being pointed out that the minimum four is more of a means to keep a hundred little clubs popping up.  But since the Soviets are considered one of the big 7 navies and some national clubs operate with less that four active members, that prerequisite may be softened some.  3 members might be just enough to get Club Red Launched.

I was just goign to post up ideas for rules, banners, ship lists, team score board and such in this thread.  Please, I have never even been in a club before, so post any ideas you have (or anyone for that matter) to help bring this all about.  Thanks

As far as a motto, how about

"Alert the fleets without a moment's delay, ... Announce readiness for action, condition 1."

People's Commissar of the Navy, Nikolai G Kuznetsov on the night of June 21.  

Because of his order, the navy was the only branch of the Sovet Military on high alert for the invasion that followed on the morning of June 22. Just an idea.

gman75

Now that one is cool
gman75

Found this one.

SWO_Daddy

I like it.
squint181

That looks good, I will try to see if I can work that into a banner.

Cool thing about the Soviet Ensign is that there is also a Guards and Red Banner version.  Might be a cool way to display achievements with in the club.  Start out in the standard and earn the upgraded flag through battle.

Also, I kinda tweaked the ship list back on the top of page one.  A lot of what is on there is dependent on what is in the new TN deck.  That release will trump any proxies that are listed.  So for example, Soviet Carded PBY or PT will replace the US versions. Just have to wait and see what comes our way.

On the chance that the Petropavlosk dose not make the set this time through, are we all ok using the Blucher as a stand in.  Or would the Hipper be a better choice.  Blucher's flag is nice, but would the Soviets really give a German built ship any command function.  On the flip side the Hipper has raider which could fit, but its more of an SA based on historical performance.  Like to know what you all think.  Also should we ditch the lone German sub, or just keep it around and see what TN has in store.
squint181

Ohh, here is the Ensign  for any potential members that want to rock this as your avatar until we decide on a permanent one.

gman75

I like the Blucher as a better choice. Even if we can't use the flag bonus, it is the same as Hipper and 1 point less, plus it has the Landing SA. I do hope TN comes out with a K class sub, that would help the sub fleet out. They could make the Pravda class which i believe could place mines.
fredmiracle

I'm not sure of your grammar, I'm not Russian but it struck me as odd. "Krasnyi Klub" ('Red Club') seems better, or possibly "Klub Krasnykh" (more like 'club of the Reds')
squint181

Frankly I have no clue.  That is a straight google translation of club red. I am game for what ever sounds right.

Any suggestions on how we will do ranks?  I kinda like a point system.  1 point for a loss, 2 for a win, 3 for a league win.  And then just break down ranks to each 10 points.  Was fiddling around and it looks like it would max out at 200ish points.

Squint, in Club USN, I took the route of making "games played" count for rank, and let wins matter for decorations.  The idea was to reward games played, not just won.  Just a thought.  What you're suggesting would work as well...it makes any game played, even a loss, count for something.  I consider participation far more important than winning or losing.  Cheers!

Your good luck against the Italians came back to bite me gman.

Loss to Fires.

Quick ER vital on the Kron and poor torpedo marksmanship did me in.


Standings updated.

Great games to the both of you.  They were very different in final results.  I actually felt that the better fleet from me went up against gman and he knocked it back pretty hard.  Squint faced more swarm style, but the swarms never really got going.

I'll be looking for rematches soon, got a few too many other games rolling at the moment - glad to have you both in the clubhouse and active though.  GOOD LUCK!

Hello comrades! I'm still not sure how this club/league system works, but I will go ahead and ask anyway: Is this the place to request admission? I'd love to partake in the Red's quest to glory!

Yes, this is the place.  We are more than happy to have you aboard.  The National Club season runs for 100 days and started on March 1st.  Basically we, as members of Club Red, partake in battles with all the other clubs that also represent the other major navies of World War2.  Yes, this means we battle our 'allies' as well, the US, Britain and French.  It is all for fun, and been having a good time doing it.

On the first page of this thread you can see out unit list.  When I put the list together, I pulled some units from other navies.  Some represents Lend Lease/Reparations like the Upholder (3 U-Class subs) P-40 Warhawk and USS Richmond (aka Murmansk).  Some represent units seized during the war, like the Romanian Destroyer and lone German U-boat. The Blucher is a stand in for the German Lutzow which was bought prior to the war but never completed.   All Team Poseidon cards are usually allowed, as too will be the soon to be released Team Neptune list.  

Have you had a chance yet to play in an online match? I found that the house rules my real life group use did not always line up with official tournament rules, so you to might find some variances. If you would like too, I could play a match with you to help familiarize yourself with the system and answer any questions you might have. Just let me know.

Again welcome aboard.

Glad you found Red comrade.

After Squint gets you up to speed with a test run of the online dice system, we can do a small game.

I will look forward to it!  Very Happy

Excellent, thank you! IT seems I have found an opponent for my first online game from my official request in the forum, so he may be my break-in game. I enjoy the game in it's physical form, and I'm sure I shouldn't do too shabby!

Reporting a loss to the Brits

In a small point skirmish Kid360's royal oak and upholder took out the Kron and her destroyer escort.  Upholder went 2 for 3 on torps while the Royal delivered a hit with secondaries on the Kron.  Can't do much when facing such pinpoint accuracy.

Club Red needs to check out Solo's supposed "Godless" status.  He is obviously praying to someone!

Sea was a great opponent! Glad to have some fresh blood in the clubhouse. Smile Sturms were the stars of the game though. Good match!
