 Post subject: Hancocks Division challeges Reb Team at HPS Shiloh *CLOSED*
PostPosted: Sat Sep 08, 2012 7:56 am 
Southern Gentlemen,

The fine Officers of Hancocks Division (5 of us) are seeking a Confederate team to meet us on the field of battle in the following HPS Shiloh scenario.

Weather_XX_Battle of the Ridges (v.1).scn - You can find this scenario by scrolling all the way to the bottom of the scenario list in the HPS Shiloh game and it's the 2nd one up from the bottom. It's a 40 turn scenario.

We are looking for a quality Confederate team that is able to keep up a good file exchange rate. We generally exchange battle files at least once every three days. If either side fails to return the file within 5 days... it's an automatic Major Victory for the other side except for extreme cases of extreme duress (death, hurricanes or imprisonment).

We are currently engaged in another MP game versus Lt General Neal Hebert & the Gator Alley Division of the AotM. We are 24 turns into that MP game and you can contact them for a reference on our capabilities to provide quick and orderly file exchanges.

Interested Confederate teams should contact me at gregorolinsky@yahoo.com . We are open to discussing the Optional Rules and any House Rules to be used for the MP game.

We promise to return your bodies to Confederate soil for a proper burial after the battle is over and will be happy to write an article about your vain but courageous attempt to defeat us in an upcoming issue of the Confederate Patriot's Dispatch newspaper. :wink:

Major Boffi,
Giovanni,

I'm going to run around some of the Confederate Taverns and see if I can stir up some action. Doesn't sound like we are finding any takers here! Scared I suppose! :wink:

Gentlemen,

We are certainly open to facing a Confederate team that would only have 3 or 4 officers if you can't raise a team of 5.

I simply picked this one because Sean Turner wanted to play a Shiloh scenario and it had enough men to split between the five of us and still allow each one of us have a decent amount of men (around 8,000 apiece) and was a reasonable length being that it was only 40 turns long.

We are certainly open to discussion about other scenarios...

I'll help the Rebel cause out on this one. I would like to see 4-5 Rebels join up though. Only reason I play multiplayer games is to see how others handle their troops. This is a short scenario so with good turn around it could be played with that many players.

I would also be willing to join the Reb team and command a few troops.

Gentlemen <salute>

My compliments!

I'm happy to see our fine gentlemen stepping forward to meet Hancocks Division. There are a couple of II Corps officers who had expressed an interest in participating, and I've dispatched riders with instructions they report here if still interested. They are Colonel Greg Davis and Lieutenant Colonel Michael Chandler, both of the 4th "Crimson Tide" Division.

Including Major Boffi, that would bring the total of Confederate officers to 5 should both report.

Highest regards,

The battle sounds like fun. I'm happy to join, if another Reb or two are still required.

Suh, my compliments! I see my rider arrived and offer my appreciation that you offer your services.

Hancocks Division has a "hospital flag" as it's colors, and with your participation their soldiers may enjoy the luxury of ending up there.

Highest regards,
