Original ClubRM HQ http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/about19419.html
firesdstny

The ClubRM HQ is an open place to discuss anything relating to the most beautiful navy in W@S!  

Unlike other clubs, at this time I do not plan to track match progressions or record ranks unless the club members wish to go that route.  You may report wins here if you want to.  Any good games of course we want to see the results Smile

Discuss strategies, units, units still missing, units to include from other navies, or whatever comes to mind!

Remember the first rule is to have fun and enjoy playing!

Good Luck!

The Sparvieros also wanna have fun!
Sparv1 at Dunkerque:
Rolls: (4d6)          Swarm at Strasbourg: Rolls: (2d6)     
Sparv2 at Strasbourg:
Rolls: (4d6)          Swarm at Dunkerque: Rolls: (1d6)

Sparv4 at Strasbourg:
Rolls: (4d6)          Swarm at Dunkerque: Rolls: (1d6)   
(+1 for all as they're all damaged)
Phoenix_jz

looks like I forgot the +1 for the swarm attacks vs Stras. lemme do that real quick:
Rolls: (2d6)     
Phoenix_jz

So, Dunkerque will sink, and Strasbourg will be brought down to half her hull strength.
All for a single hit on an Italian Battlecruiser!
SeaAngel

Looks great!
Buster

I mostly play on the land side, but when I dip my toes into the water, Italy and battles in the Mediterranean are what I enjoy the most! Very Happy
Limeys, beware:





The force is led by the Bolzano in front, and while it's disliked by many, the ship is actually one of my favorites. Though, I guess there are some nostalgia involved, as it was my first WAS ship. Razz
At the heart of the formation, you'll find the Aquila, which is key to my planes, even though Italy itself is an enormous aircraft carrier.  Laughing
Most of the direct firepower is located in the Vittorio Veneto and the Littorio. As you surely can see, the Roma is missing to complete the completed ships of the Littorio-class. Luckily, I'll order one together with the Team Aegir deck!

Good luck guys, try not to bomb your own ships. Wink
SeaAngel

Good looking fleet!
Buster

Thanks!
I've got the Roma now, so the three sisters are finally together. However, with the Impero introduced in the new deck, I guess I'll have to get another one if I want to have a model for all of them. Laughing

On another note, I look forward to reading some books about/including the Regia Marina this summer. They are Struggle for the Middle Sea and War at Sea: A Naval Atlas, 1939-1945, both introduced to me through this forum. You guys have any other recommendations?
Phoenix_jz

I hope I didn't miss the nation club season... did I? If not, when does it start?
SWO_Daddy

I think we were talking early July for the start of the season.  You're just in time!

Good to sea Club RM getting some love!

Great! I have a couple fleet builds I've been working on, it'll be interesting to see how they work.
firesdstny

Sweet!  Glad to have you in participation Phoenix!

This should be a good year for Club RM as it seems we have at least 3 active online players !!!
SeaAngel

I'd love to hear some ideas about fleet builds involving the new units.  PM me Amici.

ohh, that's one thing I haven't done, stuff with the new units. i gotta get down to that!
firesdstny

You guys going to jump in!?!

I've got two wins in against Euro-nations so far- 1 against the KM and one against France as part of a year-by-year series.

I've also currently got a match started against the Soviets and one ready to go against the Aussies who are trying to save the Med for the British!
SeaAngel

Yeah, I've got Mother-in-Law health issues and FFFL is about all the WAS I can handle right now.

Hopefully things will get more "normal" soon.
Phoenix_jz

Didn't realize they'd started. Must get back into the swing of things!
Phoenix_jz

just need some clarification, becuae I though i read this somewhere;
Once I get myself in a match, am i supposed to PM my club leader with the details of the match(opponent, their club, year and size), and what my fleet build is?
firesdstny

PM a moderator in the online games section (I am one) what your fleet build will be.  It's really only for anti-cheating purposes.  

When you're finished you can post your win or loss here if you'd like, though I do not plan on doing any official record keeping of such things.

IF YOU WIN!!!  Make sure to post the result to the NCLC results page though so we get credit for the win.  If you lose, the winner is supposed to post.  Wink

I just won my 200pt 1942 game vs. hokiepastor of Club RN, which was quite close. Despite the fact he brought 2 capital ships along to play, my DDs and Sparvieros(as well as some well placed bombs from the '2001 CB squadrons) got me through.
SeaAngel

Well done!
Phoenix_jz

Just got myself into a 300pt 1943 game vs. KM... This could get ugly.

Awesome!  Great work Phoenix!  You can take the KM Smile
Phoenix_jz

Just checking in, the rule in the 2010 rulebook that allows 9 squadrons of aircraft on your land airbase in 300pt games, is that still in effect here?
SeaAngel

Yes

I posted this elsewhere, then realized this is the place to ask the question.

I know there are limits to what one can take, based on the number of points of the fleet.  Here's what I have, in rough table format!

Fleet Pts. / Obj. Pts. / max#units / air base cap / ship stacking / plane stacking

 100      /     50      /       15       /       5         /         2        /      4
 200      /    100     /       20       /       7         /         2        /      4
 300      /    150     /       25       /        9        /         2        /      4
 400      /    200     /       30       /       11       /         2        /      4
 500      /    250     /       35       /       13       /         3        /      5

All my questions were answered, and I filled them in above. Thanks!

Phoenix_jz

Ok, thanks a bunch!
I think I've got a good idea for fleet that should be able to take whatever comes at it... provided the dice are on my side, of course(which they usually aren't)
firesdstny

sorry guys, been dragging us down lately.  On a 5-loss streak.  My main BB guns can't hit anything right now.  It's pretty uncanny:

2 matches with Ayrton, 2 with Solo, 1 with Gibster (not a club game), 1 with Flak.  My BB's are missing more than they are hitting - and I'm not even trying to long range them.  Just normal hitting power.
SeaAngel

Oh I know exactly what you are talking about.
SeaAngel

Dropped a 1941 vs USN Ayrton 12.  

Littorio never even hit anything, vitaled in the second turn.

Subs were next to useless even paring L Ts with Axums.

Sparvs might as well have stayed at home.

He shot through my smoke like it wasn't there.

Sad, sad day for the RM.

Hats off to a great opponent and player.
firesdstny

ah, that helped considerably.  I took a speed fleet augmented by Roma.  The speedy ships took 2 objectives on turn 2 and Roma lit up Warspite.  That was hopefully the purge I needed to kick things back into high gear.

Don't underestimate Vetnor though - his fleet was good and he savaged me with air - I just had the right rock to his scissors.  Very Happy
SeaAngel

Victory for RM
Winner: SeaAngel RM
Opponent: hokiepastor RN

Dice gods smiled and I vitaled HMS Lion turn 2.  Great Player and honored opponent.

firesdstny

Good season for the RM!  

I'm not going to start any more club matches before it ends - the new little one and school and everything else just has me too busy.  But it's nice to finish with a winning record Smile

My personal record for the season unless I miscounted is 13-8.  Lot of games Smile  I split the last 4 games 2-2.  2 tough wins, and 2 bad losses Smile
Phoenix_jz

Well guys, sorry to say, I have to report a loss...'

Versus Azrael, of club KM, I got my butt whipped, as the dice gods decided to troll me mercilessly, my only real good rolls were for AA:
http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic43183-0.php

are we still in the lead, btw?
firesdstny

nah, IJN went past us.  We ought to end up in 2nd though.  Not too shabby for the RM.
SeaAngel

CRM Victory!

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic43577-0-asc-0.php

Smoke and mirrors saved my Italians from massed French battleships.  As always, Flak was a great opponent and a good sport!

I am sorry that I couldn't play more NCL games.  FFFFFL took up more time than I thought it would.
SeaAngel

Funny, this game was the polar opposite of the game I played in August.

Smoke kept my losses to a minumum.

Littorio vitaled Strasburg and survived to be sunk in the last round.

Even Torps scored hits every turn I used them.


So that gives me only a 2-1 record for this season.  A third as many games played with about the same number of victories as last year.  Maybe I am improving after all. Wink
Phoenix_jz

How much time is left in the season?
firesdstny

season is done.  any games you started before oct 7 still count, but otherwise its over man!
Phoenix_jz

oh, okie dokie
Azrael

reporting for duty  Smile
firesdstny

welcome aboard sailor!  

Love your fleet in the olympics
Azrael

thanks, my olympic fleet is kind of a variation of a fleet I play at JBC coined by another player as the Italian fleet of doom lol

Hey guys, I'd like to apply for membership in the RM Club.  Are there any hazing rituals I need to be worried about?
Wink

Hey guys, my first game representing the club is against Club KM's very own VK.  (250pts, Nation Pure, 1943 and Fleet limits, landbase has a cap of 10)

Here's what he is fielding:
2x Tirpitz 110
4x Ju 88a4 36/146
2x BF109   14/160
2x FW109 A3/U3 22/182
2x Kondor 12/194
4x U-66 48/142
1x ZG3 7/149

Before seeing his fleet, I decided to try something wild and crazy using the following, I'll let you guys know what happens.

4x C.205 Veltro  40/40
1x Aquila           15/55
1x Sparviero      14/69
3x RE 2001 Falco II OR 18/87
6x SM.79 Sparviero       66/153
12x MAS Motor Torpedo Boat  72/225
3x Camicia Nere  21/246
1x Cr.42 Falco      3/249
firesdstny

Good Luck!  Let us know how it turns out
au64

After Action Report:

Well the MAS MTB's did about as well as could be said.  The game was heavy air, and the dual Tirpitz AA gunners were super accurate having splashed 4 of the 6 Sm.79's in the first two turns of the game.  Both carriers were vitaled in back to back turns by the Tirpitz's gun crews.  I did manage to shot down one Fw190 and damage a Tirpitz twice.

The RM was unable to complete with dice power of that magnitude.  Both sides took an objective leaving one on the table, and the Germans has a bonus for surface fleet destruction.  Thus the final tally was:

Germany: 388
Italy: 136.2
  (.2 was for claiming credit of the 2 pts of damage to the Tirpitz)

I did make some tactical errors (two of them very costly), but a rematch has been agreed upon with the same scenario and different fleets.
firesdstny

Tirp is a fearsome foe.
au64

Congrats to Club RM for placing second in this years Nat Club League.

I believe that I went 5-3 this year contributing to half our losses!  I'm so determined to field a swarm of MAS boats and make them work... just once!!!
firesdstny

Nice job au64.  Glad to have you aboard!  I'm happy with 2nd.
