Coincidence? I think not - perhaps its a sign.....


Then you'll find it no coincidence that GEN Balack's 11 Pz Div is the best unit in the scenario!

PS: Think you'll like this one A LOT. Very wide open; each game should play out differently (there is no direct combat for player one on the opening turn so there is no way get a "perfect" opening move).


How long is the scenario?

this is huge, will most of the units show up from start or is it more like AtD with reinforcements popping up non-stop?

The Russian player has most of the forces to start (about 66%). German player starts with less (about 33%) and then gets re-inforcements as they are freed from Armee Group A or elsewhere in der Kessel.

I'm already trying to figure out a bracket for 30 some odd players. But it's too hard on a Sunday morning. Biggest problem I see: everyone has to play the first round, because getting a bye would be a big disadvantage. ie: player 1 having a game under his belt versus player 2 never having seen the field of battle.

We already have enough for a straight out 32 player knockout.. I still want registrations to be open for another week or two, maybe we can get 64 players!

Back home after the weekend, I am happy to see that I still can register.

Once again the rule "Best things in life are free" shows to be true. Ok KP is not for free but this is just the needed exception for every rule :).

PS. Congratulations Rob for the nice community you got around your site.

Am looking forward to this one. After licking my wounds from Wiking Whitout let's see if I have learned anything ... chuckles. Everything I have seen and read thus far looks really good from map to info.

Since Robjess and JSS are the only ones to play this scenario, are we to assume they will be in the same bracket? :wink:
