Clubhouse Battleship Shootout

All Clubs are invited to the first Clubhouse Shootout.

Each Club can enter 1 battleship(hull 5 only) for the contest. In each round attacks will be made against increasing higher target armours. Hit and you advance to the next round. Miss and your out.

Club France - Richelieu
Club USN - Massachusetts
Club RN - Nelson
Club IJN - Yamato
Solomiranthius

If I'm not being presumptuous for CUSN, I'll enter Massachussets!

Club USN - Massachussets
sublime828

CRN will enter Nelson
Brigman

Club IJN - Yamato.

...what?  The IJN were famous for treaty violations!  Laughing
Flakstruk

Club France - Richelieu
Club USN - Massachusetts
Club RN - Nelson
Club IJN - Spreading disinformation

Still looking for a representative from Italy, Germany and the Soviet Union.

And if torpman happens by, yes custom carded minor battleships are acceptable
NeuralDream

Are the undead pirates of the VFN invited? We have quite a few wounded battleships that would like to shoot and maybe accidentally fire against CRN once or twice :p.
Flakstruk

Strasbourg?
NeuralDream

If allowed, yes, Strasbourg.

Club Free France - Richelieu

I'm afraid you are...the following BBs have 6 hull points:

Montana
Iowa
Missouri
New Jersey
Yamato
Musashi
Sho-go Yamato
Fredrich der Grosse
Sovyetskiy Soyuz
Brigman

The IJN has misreported the hull size of Yamato.  She's okay.  Smile
firesdstny

CKM will go with a bit of a surprise entry - Scharnhorst!
Brigman

All kidding aside, Yamato is ineligable by the definition of the contest.  I was just hamming it up. Wink

The IJN shall instead enter the Nagato, our best BB... that isn't a Yamato.

Actually they never really violated any treaty they signed.
Brigman

I thought I'd read they'd begun construction of Yamato while under treaty limitations (that Yamato exceeded)...

In any case!  No Yamato here!  Move along... nothin' to see!  Very Happy

Nope they backed out of the treaty publicly when they began construction of Yamato.

Well I'd represent, but I'm already takin' Nagato for the IJN, and Fires has Scharnhorst for CKM.  IIRC you took Nelson for CRN. We need another CFS dude here, Subby.

Hey hey hey! Don't forget about me here - I took Mass for CUSN. Wink

I nominate JuggernautJ to take Ark for CFS! (As much as any of us are actually "using" the ships.)

It Begins

The Combatants

CFFN - Richelieu
CVN - Strasbourg
CRN - Nelson
CUSN - Massachusetts
CIJN - Nagamoto
CFS - Arkanglesk
CMed - Littorio (assumed)

Handicap:
The most expensive Battleship has a handicap of 0, all other Battleships start with a points handicap equal to the points differential.

Rounds:
Each Battleship makes a single main gunnery attack per round against steadily higher armour values. These attack are made at range 2.

If a Battleship misses the round Target it automatically is out of the competition.

If a Battleship hits the round Target, it scores points equal to the number of successes in its attack.

From round 3 onwards if all battleships hit the round Target, the battleship with the fewest points at rounds end is out of the competition.

Last Ship Standing Wins The Shootout.

Round 1 Target (Armour 5)
Round 2 Target (Armour 6)
Round 3 Target (Armour 7)
Round 4 Target (Armour 8)
Round 5 Target (Armour 9)
Round 6 Target (Armour 10)
Round 7+ Target (Armour 11)

If someone is willing and able to set up a points chart with handicap in place we can get this underway ASAP. I'm working 12 hours at the moment
NeuralDream

Handicaps:

Nelson 0
Massachusetts 3
Richelieu 5
Littorio 9
Nagato 11
Arkhangelsk 19
Strasbourg 22
sublime828

How exactly are the handicaps going to be used?

Also, I cantacted jugger about taking the Arkangelysk for CFS and asbestos for RM/Cmed.  They should participate Very Happy

Brigman

Also, Fires submitted Scharnhorst for Club Kreigsmarine.
Flakstruk

After I logged off I remembered the Sharny...

Progression between rounds will count on points. You get a point per success and that carries over. Less expensive battleships will roll few dice and roll fewer successes hence the handicap.

Of course if you miss your out too.


You guys can start shooting, range 2 at armour 5
Asbestos

Hmm... for this I'd rather have VV, squeeze out that extra handicap point Wink
Brigman

Might as well kick it off!

Nagato mains @ Armor 5 target:

EDIT: IJN score now at 20 (9 successes + 11 handicap).

You know, I don't think I've compared Nagato to VV before. Ludicrous.
Brigman

I'd be shocked if anyone would be so base as to edit their rolls for something like this...

If we want to move the die rolls somewhere else (the online gaming forum perhaps), we can, but let's not invalidate the rolls already done.  For anyone.
Rebel

Yeah, I don't think anyone on this forum would cheat in a thing like this, but the easiest thing would be to move it to WAS Online... but let's just say that if a shooting post is edited, it doesn't count.

Wow, funny that the Straus shot better than all the rest... maybe ND is tweaking it! Laughing

Aye, take that ye scurvy rats! And next time you try to sink our ships, don't bring a ship with a fatal flaw...  pirate
sublime828

Just my opinion.....but the handicaps for this are way inflated.  Stras is picking up 22 points each round it makes it through.....Massachusetts has better gunnery than nelson and gets handicap points.......something doesn't seem right with this


anyway

nelson mgs
Rolls: (15d6)                               
Flakstruk

Handicap only applies at the very start. After that its just successes that count
Brigman

Kind of failing to see how the handicap helps at all, really... since if you miss, you're out, and points are irrelevant... but no biggie. Smile
Rebel

Maybe whoever has the most points at the end wins, you get 20 points for being last one alive?
Flakstruk

It doesn't much matter now but after a few rounds the heavier guns will catch up to the battlecruisers.

In fairness I probably should have made sure everything was up before inviting you guys to pick ships - but I saved getting bogged in set up discussion

Massachussets Mains v. 5 Armor Rolls: (17d6)

That looks about right for what I tend to get... 8 hits with 17 dice.

Solo, I think I successfully transferred my luck to you in one of our games.

No tags back!

Seriously, hope it improves for ya...

Your doing good!

Every round the targets armor get thicker, and you still shoot at R2. If you hit, you get as many points as hits you roll, if you miss, you're out.

(And if, like you did, you get 14 hits, you get an extra 10 points... so you are in the lead with 58 points! Very Happy

Does that make sense?
Sir_Valentine

I guess.... I will just keep shooting until you tell me to stop.
