2019-11-09(A) Richard Jenulis vs Chris Brooks American winWest Coast Rumble 2019 (Round Three). American firepower overwhelm the Japanese left flank. Game over on turn four. I am not certain how the Japanese are meant to standup to the Americans.
2019-01-21(A) Raoul Duke vs TY Japanese winI utterly failed to grok the pacing of the attack, playing it like it was five turns instead of six and a half. This paired with more critical hits in one phase (by 152mm guns, no less) than I've seen in most games to cause close to fifty percent casualties by the end of turn two. Knowing a lost cause when I see one, I conceded. I'd love to give it another go at some point in the future though-- there's a lot of interesting tactical problems here for both sides.
2018-09-05(A) nathan wegener vs Dave Mareske American winDefender was spread out along the ridge in mutually supporting positions. Initial shots were deadly on both sides. Pushed up under the cliff only to discover the HMG which overlooked the valley. My troops went reeling back but the American firepower was able to bust the line in a couple spots and flood the hill. Both his heavy guns had effective shots but then broke securing the win for the USA.
