As the scenario dictates, a game of patience and seeking cover for both sides and good card draws and plays for the Commissar. The story in both game was my % on Armor, both games better than jml0702, I shot 53% and 41% to his 40% and 30%, a 10% difference in both games and thus a 4-0 victory for me.
In the 1st game, I slowly moved up and took cover and attacked from distance and shots were hitting well and jml0702 advanced into the forest and moved up slowly as well. I got some early kills to take the advantage and held his attack at bay until I could attack with force. jml0702 had a good play with a BEL card, a 3-3 kill on a tank unit and exited his INF and 2 medals there. He had a bad miss on A/P, 2 dice on a 1 fig ARMOR, cost him a kill and maybe game could have ended at 8-5 me and put more pressure on me for the return game.
2nd game, more of the same, some patience, some cover, moving my units on my RIGHT with the Commissar's help to the CENTER, he started on fire hitting on my ARMOR as well. Had both COUNTER cards to start, so that helped me and of course getting units into the forest an added bonus and 2 key misses for him, an AMBUSH on a 1 fig ARMOR that missed and then I hit his 1 fig ARMOR in return for a kill and then another hit on a 1 fig ARMOR for me of his ARMOR in the forest, think game was 2-2 going into that turn and got lucky and came out ahead 4-2 and then his dice dried up and i was able to press my advantage in the CENTER and my LEFT with TFH and an ARMOR ASLT and close the game at 8-4 once again, if not, had BEL to exit a unit as well.
Good start for me, rough for jml0702, but 10 matches to go and plenty of time to make up ground and might be the one and only time I am at the top of the pool!
Good luck to jml0702 the rest of the way and on to Week 2 and will see what happens. Nice scenario and 8 medals gives everyone a fighting chance to start, merci FFM44!!
