    Updated ASL Armory

    I, for one, find it very useful. But also, I know such projects can be time consuming. It is the cherry on top, and if you decide not to do it, I will still be grateful for the armory that you provide.

    APCR (ASL Player Comparative Ratings)

    My quick thoughts: Player ratings for Non-Tournament games contributes to weird, undesirable, competitive behavior - some of which has been noted here. There is also other 'weird behaviors' that have not been stated that I have seen or heard. APCR should only be used for Tourneys. I...

    Sad and angry About VASL 6.5.0

    I suggest "Axis/CPVA/KPA OB", which would also couple better with "Allies/UN OB". Also, if one feels the CPVA rules are cumbersome, I suggest picking up "Rally Point 17 - Special Study II of the Korean War". It has the "CPVA Guide: Organized by Sequence of Play", which can come in very handy.

    AAR - Meatchoppers With Knives - RPT167

    Great and fun AAR. However, Walt should have dug a little deeper in the rules, and the bayonet charge should have gone forward. Per W.6A and W5.2, French leaders are exempt from Bayonet Charge NTC.

    Double spoiler - I already got a meaty 99th scenario designed - destined for a future Rally Point.

    Twin Cities ASL 2/8/20-- VALENTINE'S DAY

    Spoiler alert - There should be a scenario with Valentines in the next Rally Point release. Also a scenario featuring the Minnesota National Guard (the 34th Division) will be in it as well.

    Should IPM be used for early World War II Soviet scenarios?

    Take a look at the KGS human wave modified rules. it does encourage human waves without being overly complicated

    Should IPM be used for early World War II Soviet scenarios?

    Our designs and playtesting for Rally Point 17 has the correct number of CPVA leaders per chapter H (i.e not the inflated number in many FW scenario), and IPM works fine. However KGS has a modified HW rule that maybe more appropriate

    Should IPM be used for early World War II Soviet scenarios?

    the leader doesn't have to participate in the IPM. So there are smart ways to keep the leader safe , and even catch up to the IPM group so he can send them off on another IPM next turn

    Rally Point Volume #17: Special Study II of the Korean War is now available!

    You and Michael R. are correct. My only other add is that Rally Points tend to be theme based, while the (recent) Schwerpunkt editions are a mix of actions.

    The Tampa ASL Group Has Lost Dave "Mountain Man" Brown

    I know Mountain Man Dave from the Tampa Bay ASL group, and played him dozens of times over the years. The news was sudden and unexpected. It is hard to say more than what Evan said. I can only add that he had a solid, practical character fitting his nickname. A small ASL tribute to him...

    CPVA: prefer shooting at first-line squads or at second-line squads?

    Thanks for a serious answer to my somewhat tongue-in-cheek statement. Going back to the CPVA 6-2-7 vs 5-2-7 decision as targets, other aspects to consider is their short range, assault fire, and unique CPVA traits. Some key CPVA traits for this discussion are that (most) CPVA have to area fire...

    CPVA: prefer shooting at first-line squads or at second-line squads?

    Now determine if it is better to fire at a German 548 or 467. Please show your mathematical work and backup ;)

    At that time period all Elephants/Ferdinands had BMG. It was playtested with all have BMG, although the counter mix only has 2 with BMG. Hence the ssr that all have bmg
