I feel a bit responsible for the direction things have gone here...but I can't say I regret the open discussion. The truth is I can't post AAR updates everyday (my job eats me alive during the week so I'm a weekend player) and the lapse between those updates opens up the opportunity for discussion. I honestly enjoy reading what people have to say but also respect the wishes of others that would like to be able to navigate through an AAR without having to read a bunch of off topic posts.

Here's what I can offer: I will create a clear, indexed table of contents within each Phase that will allow people to quickly navigate to the meat of the AAR content and skip the conversation part. That way (I hope) both types of reader are accommodated. I realize other AARs implement this kind of feature (i'm certainly not claiming to be some inventor here) but please...if anyone has suggestions for ways to accommodate everyone, I'm happy to hear it.

P.S. the weekend is almost here :)

squalleke123: actually, I believe the options to create these kind of open discussions are really the strength of all paradox games...

totally agree ! ! :)

Marchalk_Zjukov: Don't you guys think that this discussion is getting out of hand?

personally, i don't consider this to be out of hand ! ! ;) i have seen out of hand in other AARs, but this does not come close to what i have seen... in fact, i found the back and forth to be informative and very worthwhile ! ! :)

cegorach: ...The brutal truth is the key would be the size - we can afford losing, Czechs cannot so no one should blame them or criticise us.

furthermore, the wisdom of the above line far exceeds the distraction of the OT part of the discussion. ! ! :cool:

magnificent AAR ! ! :cool:

Well I did not say that the discussion was uninformative but I just think that the OP made this thread for this AAR and not for Off Topic stuff.
And I too have learned one or two things from the discussion, I just think that the discussion should take place in another thread.

WIELKOPOLSKA - Phase 2 - Quiet Before the Storm

Phase 2


August 29, 1939 Poland's last day of peace arrives. Preparations for impending war are complete. Industry has been expanded, technologies have been researched, alliances have been forged, supplies have been stockpiled and my army has been deployed.



There is one last bit of business before the big day arrives. I make a change to my Chief of Staff Minister to Wladyslaw Moczar who will improve the org regain of my units by +20%.



Just before midnight Assembled in their staging areas, filled with anticipation, Polish troops break out into song singing the same hymn that Polish knights sang before the Battle of Grunwald in 1410 when they decisively defeated the Teutonic Order in what is now Prussia: Bogurodzica


A cold chill sweeps across the German lines as they hear the Poles singing across the frontier in dim torchlight.

I can wait for the action. The first part was great, let's see if the preparations were sufficient.

Org. regain ministers are my favourites.

Crushing the Germans should be doable if the game battle system is mostly vanilla. If this was a WiF, Compendium, Total Realism or other game with modded battles, I'd be veeery afraid you might lose.

Let's have a beer in Berlin :D
