2 v 2 Game at Bill House!

Post by Motormanmpd on Sun Jun 20, 2010 7:16 pm

We had a two on two game at Bill's house on Sat. Bill's wife made dinner. I wanted to say I enjoyed the food. Please thank your wife for me. The game pitted the Germans (Bill and Eric) verses the British (Rufus) and Russians (Stephan). Each player had a 1750 point late war army. I brought the Irish Guards infantry company and Stephan had a Russian tank company with IS-2s. These armies go together well. Stephen brought a large amount of quality tanks while I had good infantry backed up by lots of big guns and air support. Bill had a panther tanks list with five panthers and a rocket battery. Eric had German Paras with PaK 40s and StuGs in support. We played the road block mission (Number 7). The allies were the attacker and had to face the German ambush. The Axis wanted to ambush the IS-2s. I thought they would use the panthers but instead they used the PaK 40s. The ambush managed to only bail out three IS-2s. I think this was one of the first mistakes made by both sides during the game. The Allies messed up their deployment by not putting their heavy guns on the table from the start. The guns spent two turns setting up to shoot. They were mostly gone by turn three. The Axis spread their army out to go for both objectives on each end of the table. When I saw this it confused me. I would of overloaded one side of the table and pushed forward with everything I had. Using smoke and tanks to push forward followed up by foot sloggers in support. In stead the Axis matched up across the board. They divided their armies thus( I think) making them less powerful. Stephan and I decided to focus on destroying Bill's 4 platoon army. Take one army out and the game is yours. By turn seven we needed to take out one more of Bill's platoons to force a company test. By this point the Axis were in position to assault both objectives on their next turn. Bill had two panthers close to one objective and Eric had two platoons of Paras next to the other objective. Stephan moved his T-34/85's and shot everything he had a Bill's two panthers. We were counting on him bailing out the tanks so my guards infantry could assault. We got lucky and Bill rolled a one and one tank was blown up. Now Bill could not pin down my assault (only 4 shots possible). He still managed to kill two of the four stands assaulting, but not the P.I.A.T. team, which was able to bailout and kill the panther. Bill promptly failed his company check and the game went to the Allies. The game was a blast and it was fun the play with players who know what they are doing. Thanks again guys for a fun game and good food....

Sounds like fun.
HORRIBLE THREAD JACKING ABOUT TO INSUE:
Anybody know where to look for german lists that use sturmtigers? They are crappy RC status and all, but they look sweet. Which books should I look at?

Back on topic:
Rufus is a cheater. It seems like 2v2 games (or higher) tend to be more unbalanced than 1v1. It easier to defeat the opposing side the more people that play. You just concentrate ALL your firepower on one company, cause the break and so long sally. It's happend to me already so I would know.

In a friendly game you can say you have to break both companies. Stephan rolls too well and questions every damn thing...even shit he knows the answer too...and Rufus eggs you on the whole game til you get a headache and want to shoot him in the leg. bom

None the less it was a good game and we failed to drop both smoke bombardments at the end...that cost us the game.

Well, I just realized a huge mistake. Remember how I kept going back and forth between the Fearless trained and Fearless vets list? Well, I took the fearless vets list and forgot to play with the Jadgpanther..... so i was playing 235 points short.

That sucks. Do you think it would of changed the game? I don't know maybe. You could of said that it broke down before it could get to the field of battle. I like how you guys kept leaving the room to talk, while Stephan and I talked right in front of you guys.

Well you and Stephan discussed things you were doing as your turn went along, we were discussing counter strategy while you guys were doing your turn. How is it advantageous for us to discuss what we are gonna do on our turn during your turn in front of you? Is that an alien concept?

On the Jagdpanther changing the game...ummmmmm...YES! AT16 ,range 40 front armor10 on the IS-2's. They'd be gone a lot quicker...their front armor 10,11 at long range. Do the math. That would have freed up my 1ic(Panther) and 2ic(Panther) to hit the left flank from the start. Id say that would have been game changing...being short 235 points is unbalanced in its self. It was close reguardless.

Yes, but obnoxious is obnoxious(you can be brutal sometimes). I know you pretend it doesnt get under your skin, but when your not doing well and Cesar or I lay into you I see the frustration. Its all good Rufus I still love you and just be prepared...when your not doing well I will not show any gaming etiquette and be as obnoxious as possible. Twisted Evil

Im working on another FoW night...a rematch. Eric this time dont short us 235 points.

Any idiot who forgets 235 points off the board deserves to lose in the first place.

It's kind of interesting, Rufus, how the whole friggin game these guys are trying to blow up my IS-2s with everything they got, and not once did Erik think to himself " GEE I FORGOT MY AT 16 TANKHUNTER !" Don't you find that a little peculiar ?

Also interesting how he's never played with a Jagdpanther before, but low and behold, Stephan's coming to town with his IS-2's hmmmm what should we take ?

Hahahahahahahhaahahah.... gimme a break Erik.

That's it, i'm getting a spetznatz force together or something, so I can at least fool you once in a while in terms of what I'm bringing.

Thats the ticket. I'd like to get a crack at your army or Luis's. I haven't felt the communist might yet and I'm sorely lacking the experience. I can't promise an easy win, but at least I wont tailor my list to beat yours Surprised .
