Let's have a tournament!

Awesome idea, right?

Good, glad we agree. Now get the hell in here and let's talk about it!

Impartial Leader Selector down for overhaul

In readying the Impartial Leader Selector for expansion support, I discovered a critical design flaw related to data synchronization.

Since unreliable draws are useless, I have immediately begun working on the redesign, thus I've taken the tool completely offline.

No prior leader draws were affected - all were fair. This was more like a data accuracy time bomb which would get more destructive the longer it went unchecked.

I hope to have the new, improved, bulletproof ILS up by the end of the weekend... we shall see!

Submit Errata is Back

I have restored the ability to directly submit errata to games, scenarios, and units. This functionality was disabled when we upgraded the Library last summer.

Note that errata now support minimal text formatting: bold, italics, links, and paragraphs.

Later this week I will add the auto-format bar included in our comment and AAR forms to the errata form. Just ran out of time this morning.

Cheers from Mexico City!

I'm just one game away from getting my "butter bar." Yea me. After all these years I'm finally moving up to Commissioned Officer status. The only thing is that I'm used calling O-1's Ensign, not Second Lieutenant!

That's what 8 years in the Navy does to you.

2013-03-07 22:45

Designing more product has slowed my game play down!

2013-03-09 15:35

Well I finished my game. I'm off to get fitted for my new O-1 uniform.

2013-03-09 17:41

That's the spirit!

Now I only need my Saipan campaign ribbon! :)

On January 19th Matt W succeeded in his alt-history victory as the Hyderabadis against the combined Indian, British, and Gurkha forces led by Hugmenot.

When the new textbooks arrive they will sing songs about the bravery of his men, and retell in excruciating detail every twist and turn of his 6-4-1 victory in Indian Unity.

Matt W and Hugmenot, in recognition and commemoration of your accomplishments, you two are hereby awarded this ribbon:

Indian Unity

Your dedication to shared plays is an inspiration to us all!

Thanks Shad!

I will try to post my impressions of the scenarios this weekend.

2013-01-31 21:17

I couldn't let guys willing to wear the uniforms that the Razakars wore lose could I? There were a couple of slow scenarios but overall these were solid fun plays.

Congrats to Matt on making field-grade rank.

2013-01-01 19:11

Thanks much! The last four were all face to face.

2013-01-06 18:00

Matt you are a PG machine. Do you have any other hobbies? I ask out of curiosity and in only the nicest way. It is stunning that your gap before next promotion is nearly double the entire number of scenarios I have played to date.

Thank goodness I made this site so we can all bask in your brilliance! ;-)

Keep going mate!

2013-01-06 18:14

Andrew,

I read a bunch, cook some and have two teenage girls. I play a lot while I wait for them to come home...

Seriously, with the puppy reaching the spaying age, I expect to have less time on my hands as I will no longer be trapped in the kitchen bablysitting a dog. The smaller PG scenarios were about all I could do while watching the dog. So I played a bunch. I am angling for some of the larger scenarios now and more towards the unplayed ones (e.g. Carpathian Brigade/Polish Steel are on the immediate list).

Thank Goodness you made the site because I probably wouldn't have played as much without the site as a place to put the plays!

2013-01-06 18:51

Another metric: the bounty gap between Matt and Jay (#2) is greater than my total bounty count; and I'm #10 in the list (at least until Hugmenot gets moving on his New Years resolution or TheDoctor starts getting some homework).

2013-01-06 21:02

PY,

It's all the AAR's. But the AARs are the things that add alot to the scenario base so I try hard to write them whenever they have any value.

2013-01-07 07:28

Matt,

Of course, and it is that which is to your credit. I was simply bemused by the numbers, not, what, vituperating.

PY

2013-01-07 07:42

PY,

Thanks, and I took it as bemusement. Hopefully others will continue to write up AARs as it greatly adds to the total experience.
