Thanks Brigs!

All, I'm about to take on Brigs (now of Club IJN) in a 7 game slugfest between the IJN and USN.  Lots of squalls and darkness...could get ugly with all those long lances...

Long lances?  I was supposed to bring Long lances?  

Dammit, I knew I forgot SOMETHING... Smile
SWO_Daddy

First battle in the series of seven with Brigs of Club IJN didn't go so well.  Managed to get 4 older BBs sunk in a swirling night battle.  Next game up is in daylight (thankfully) but the IJN's got an advantage in the air.  Should be a wild one.
Brigman

The last battle was close until it tipped, then swung dramatically.  This one?  I dunno.  I do think it will be fun, win lose or draw!
SWO_Daddy

Second game against Brigs was a big win, and pulls us about even our little campaign against the IJN (link to the game in the post above). We haven't selected the next game yet, but I'm sure it will be a good one.

SWO glad to see the club is in good hands! Hope this new year is a bit calmer.

Permission to come aboard, Mr. President.

I decided to go with something completely different for my Single Nation Club - as much as I love the British, I can (and probably will) play them as CFS.

So if it pleases you all, I respectfully request membership to join this elite club. Very Happy

I'm thrilled to report the first ClubUSN league win! (And against the Club House President no less. Twisted Evil sorry sublime!).

Winner: Solomiranthius (ClubUSN)

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic30741-0-asc-0.php

1942 year limit (although only '42 units I brought were warhawks, barbs, and mitchells).

It was a tough fight. The USN rust-buckets Arizona and Tennessee could barely move during the first two turns, luckily Nevada steamed on ahead with Saratoga and her cargo of wildcats where they not only contested the objective on turn 2 but each vitalled a Jamaica.

After that it was a battle of attrition with the US facing 64 hull points worth of ships in the water: PoW, 15 cruisers, and 7 destroyers.

With the help of strafing fighters, some crazy sub commanders, and a few lucky vitals, Arizona and Tennessee survived until the end.
SWO_Daddy

Awesome Solomiranthius!  Always great to start with a "1" in the win column.  Your rank and award data has been updated.
Piper

Nice Job!  I'm taking on Flakstruck and his Richeliu with some DD's, Cleveland, Houston, and USS Nevada.  It's an uphill battle, but I'm fairly confident. Smile

I should have taken West Virginia instead of a Fletcher though.
SWO_Daddy

Bravo Zulu to Piper, Ruckdog, and Solomiranthius for getting Club USN off to a great start in the 2011 National League.  Keep up the good work guys!
Solomiranthius

Loss to Brigman of CIJN.

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic30803-0-asc-0.php

Longest 100 point game I've ever played. Clevelands and Edsalls are simply no match for Yamato.
Brigman

That game was epic, at least in terms of length and intensity.  Solomir, you played a great game!
Solomiranthius

Loss to Brigman of IJN. I thought I had him after the first round of torpedoes, but my subs failed me after that and his took off.

Good game Brigs! I will have my revenge! Wink

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic30852-0-asc-0.php
Brigman

You played a good game Solomir!  Was sure it would go the other way.
Solomiranthius

Another loss, this time to fires of CKM.

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic30933-0-asc-0.php

Sorry guys - this one would have been close either way, but I can't help but feel the dice roller has turned on me recently.

I think Brigman transferred his luck to me in that first un-winnable game against Yamato. Wink

CUSN league win over IJN.

Winner: Solomiranthius (CUSN)
Opponent: Indy Sparky (CIJN)

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic30809-0.php

Thanks Indy!

Finally broke my losing streak. Dice weren't great for me, but I got through it. Made a mistake in my fleet build spreadsheet and had Edsalls for only 4 points, rather than 6. I was 8 points over, but Indy was a great sport when we realized that late in the game. When/if we rematch, I'll make sure he gets those extra points in his build.
Ruckdog05

Another loss to CIJN:

Winner: Jaybird
Loser: Ruckdog

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/sutra722621.php#722621

I might have been able to pull this one out, but a combination of bad target selection on my last air phase, combined with good AA rolls on Jaybirds part, cost me the game.
SWO_Daddy

Rankings updated, including the award of our first MUC to Solomiranthius!  Congrats!

It was a very close game, but I think Fletcher pulled me through putting no less than TWO torpedoes into Richelieu, in ONE attack!

Loss to Indy Sparky of IJN.

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic31006-0-asc-0.php

Avengers did *not* pull their weight - either got aborted, or just couldn't bring the torp destruction. The two LL hits on Mass at the end, and the failure of Atlanta to hit a 2 armor with 5 dice doomed me. We're headed for a re-rematch though. Very Happy

Good game Indy!
Brigman

How could you bring anyone down with that adorable little hamster at the helm?

No worries Solo...it happens.  Go pet your lucky Helldiver or something! Smile

It's a bank vole! Wink

Here's hoping that my Avengers do better in my rematch v. Indy and match v. Jaybird.

Although... Indy already aborted 2 over Musashi and Yamato and splashed the third...

No worries though - I have five more to stop his BBs before they get in range of my carriers in a turn or two.  Shocked

Sho-Go throws a ratchet in pure US air builds for sure...

Solomiranthius

CUSN win over CIJN!

That was one of the craziest, most nail-biting games I ever played. As Indy kept aborting my Avengers over his duo-Yamato-Musashi-sector-of-doom, and the ones that got through performed fairly poorly, I didn't think I had a chance.

The dice roller gave and took with sinister delight - but came through in the end with one six to sink the crippled Musashi and five sixes out of six dice to cripple Yamato.

Great game Indy! Thank you!

Stats updated.
SWO_Daddy

Club USN win over Club FFN.  An absolute nail biter.  The French bulled their way across the center of the map, sank the North Carolina and Massachusetts, and came within a breath of blasting US flattops with the guns of Richelieu and Dunkerque.  Only a last minute success by US air that had been frequently aborted salvaged the battle.  Awesome game by Flakstruk!

Reporting a CUSN win over GenJJs of CIJN. It was a pretty close-run thing; I managed to grab 3 objectives on the last turn, but only because the crippled Quincy made 2 concealment rolls, and one of my Massachusetts survived 23 torpedo dice (4 Kates with Sneak attack + Shadow) with only one hit!

Loss to Centurion of CKM to report.

I tried a cruiser/DD swarm, but my AA was atrocious and his 109s performed remarkably well. Add to that some lucky torp hits on his side and BBs that (almost) consistently vitalled cruisers and there was nothing I could do.

Thanks for the game Centurion!

Good game, Jaybird. I know how frustrating it is when you have four BBs and nothing to shoot at but planes. Thanks for being such a good sport.
SWO_Daddy

Solo, I just updated your stats again.

Gents, I'm about to start a having my place packed out for a trans-atlantic move.  I'm going to have internet for another couple of days, but expect my availability to start to decrease.  After Thursday, I may have limited to no internet access until the end of the month (still up in the air).  So, if I up and disappear, worry not...I'll be back.

In the mean time, keep fighting the good fight!

One more game finished up...

Club USN win over Club IJN.  Mercilessly lopsided dice luck.  Jaybird was a great sport about it, but I'm pretty sure the Swedes could have beaten any navy in the game with luck like that.  As always, a great opponent!

Loss to Sublime of CRN.

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic31086-0-asc-0.php

The Euryalus swarm would have been hard to deal with normally, but it was made harder when Repluse vitalled an undamaged North Carolina at range 4, and Nelson got a second vital on Massachussets.

The dice were not smiling down at me that game.
SWO_Daddy

Posting from an almost empty house.  

Rough luck their Solo.  Nothing you can do against dice like that.

Updating the standings.
Solomiranthius

Another loss against firesdstny of CKM. Sad I feel bad about all these losses I'm racking up - I'm blaming the dice roller for at least a few of them.

However, this one I played poorly, but had his BBs missed (i.e., not rolled 8 or 9 hits) at least once against my Washington, it might have been different. I thought Sboats could shoot from islands and be shot at - changed a whole round of movement that might have let me take out a Scheer or get a shot at a BB that I didn't take advantage of. Even so, I was left with a crippled Edsall and he was left with a crippled Gneis - so a very close match.

I had some poor and some good rolls (vitalled a battleship without being vitalled back for once), but Fire's were consistently good.

Ruckdog05

Loss to Brigman of CIJN:
http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/about31001.html

I manged to put some hits on him early with the Iowa and Missouri, but then his dice went red-hot and he vitaled both my battleships in successive turns while at the same time I missed at range one.

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic31104-0-asc-0.php

His LL's rolled quite above average. Combine that with my inability to get as many meaningful vitals as necessary from two Mass's and... well there you go. LL swarms are hard to deal with.
Solomiranthius

4-8 is not where I want to be for my record.

And my one was sucktacular. Nagato was a major disappointment in that one... not one hit, and she got vitaled when she got into range 2.  :/
Ruckdog05

Lost to IJN again, this time to Tincancaptain. It was a pretty close match, but he made some key obscurment rolls and I made a couple of boneheaded mistakes with my maneuvering:

Another loss to CKM firesdstny.

http://aaminis.myfastforum.org/ftopic30972-0-asc-240.php

I can't catch a break - second time we played with the same fleets - last game he was left with a crippled Gneisenau, this game he was left with a crippled Bismarck.

The USN big guns have not been pulling their weight for me. If I'm ever lucky enough to vital a BB it is A) too late to matter, or B) I get vitalled right back.
SWO_Daddy

Solo, been having a similar problem.  I just had NJ at range 2 just barely scored a hit on Dunkerque.  By the numbers, I had a 35% chance of sinking her in a single shot, but barely scored enough to hit her.  There is no denying the great guns on US BBs, but when the dice decide they hate you...

I feel bad as I cheesed out on air v. the Italians. Although I am glad I did - five sparvs, four 2001s, two BBs, and six Leos would have been hard to beat with anything else I had brought.

Thanks Brigs! Nice to get a couple wins again.

Congrats Solo!  The Italian Spar+sub swarm can be a real bear.

Winner: Solomiranthius (CUSN)
Opponent: Jaybird (CIJN)

This was our 500 point, no BBs, no air match. We started with around 77 units on the board (69 of which were ships), and ended with 17 units left (9 of which were ships).

Jaybird was a great opponent as always - thanks for the match! I thought it would last at least one more round, but his LLs, after having performed above average, gave out in the end.

Congrats Solo!  An epic game.

Club USN is pleased to announce the first award of the Presidential Unit Commendation to Solomiranthius!

Thank you, thank you! Very Happy Having nothing to do for the first two weeks of the league season certainly helped get me there. Wink

ty for the game SWO.  I was hoping my BB's would come through a little stronger against yours, but the TBF's did a great job of cutting their legs off before they could really cause any havoc.  

The dice didn't help of course (when do they?), but it was a good fleet you drummed up!  I didn't feel out of it till the round I went 0/3 on BB shots, but I can say this is the first fight against a Washington/Massachusetts where they haven't vitalled something!

Man, what a great game! It was a real nail-biter; it could have gone either way on the last turn.

Ruckdog, congrats on the win...and the promotion!

CUSN (Solo) league win over CIJN (Indy Sparky)

I don't think anyone can be really happy with this match. We both got hit hard by a severely streaky dice-roller, but when you're relying on torps (Indy) rather than surface shots (me), 4s and 5s matter just as much as 1s and 2s.

Indy was a great sport as always! Smile
