To answer a question once phrased, that's what I do for the hobby and how I support MMP, the constant moans just don't really get that much penertration. I think they want MMP to stop producing ASL just to say I told you so. The darker side of human nature. Smile it makes them jealous!!!!
Montagu, your avatar changed! Is that your William Tell Swiss Moron outfit?
I went 1 and 1 this week: victorious in ASL1 (Retaking Vierville) and losing by one lousy hex at ASL14 (Silence That Gun). Loss Lesson #1: A leader cannot self-destruct a Gun, but a hero can; units must be able to possess/crew SW/Ordnance to do so. Loss Lesson #2: when 3 US para squads and 8-1 leader (all broken) cannot rally themselves for 2 full game turns, it's not your day.
I really like the Inspector Clouseau thing you've got going on in your photo. I need to get one of those hats - as a noob, I end up looking like Clouseau when I'm playing ASL. The latest example was missing the 2x penalty for a Gun changing CA in woods/building. I missed both shots (norm, intensive) and the tank I was shooting at returned fire and scored a CH - pink mist. My defense melted over the next player turn. Game over.
