 Post subject: AAR - PART SIX - The Battle for Chattanooga (FINALE)
PostPosted: Thu Apr 03, 2014 10:23 am 
The last chapter in the Battle for Chattanooga! (A few days early but I anticipate having a busy weekend so I wanted to publish it now) Big thanks to everyone who has sent compliments and has enjoyed the reading! There are more AAR's to come this year so stay tuned for more. I also have a new Customized MP Game going at Vicksburg and I hope to get another one started next month. Please contact me for any info or to volunteer your services.

Thanks again everyone! Especially to Leon, Leland, Hampus, Mark, and Stephen for letting all this be published here on the forum and for playing in the game. They had a great attitude about it and made it fun.

Technically speaking the battle was lost at the end of the first day - and my reasoning for that is that the command control was completely jumbled -it would have been time then to have disengaged and retreated if this were a real battle in the real war -my reasoning for this is that -well, look at what happened - it appears that the entire army was lost during the second day.

That would have been catastrophic in the actual war. I love the kid's soccer game analogy - it is exactly the same in rec league hockey when you get a bunch of guys together that have no clue about positional play.

I didn't realise how long the match went for after I dropped out.

Have now read all the parts of this AAR and I must say they are excellent!

Would love to participate in one of your MP games again in the future! Your custom scenarios are very fun. :)
