The guys at Adler hobby sent me a copy of their scoring sheet for league play.  I thought I would run it by you guys and see what you think of their scoring system.

Win 3 points
Draw 2 points
Loss 1 point
Scenario specific points (units destroyed/objectives taken)  I'm assuming 1 point per.

What do you guys think?

Just an FYI they are having some sort of swap meet at the store Saturday, so finding space to play might be difficult.

Do. Or do not. There is no try.  :)

I do not think "try" is the operative word in there.

Despite my past successes, we are in a brave new world here at 750. Operatives report the Evil British Empire has constructed a technological terror capable of destroying entire buildings in a single shot. Our armour cannot repel such firepower! And to match it would take half a tank corps. What can Stalin do against such reckless hate? We can only hope that small, 2-man, teams might be able to slip past its formidable defenses and deliver attacks to its vulnerable points. Preferably, its thermal exhaust points.

Matt, or Mike,

Don't forget to post a link for the tournament rules so people can look them over.

Somebody is going to have to try and stop this Soviet Juggernaut.

Player: Matthew Fullmer
Opponent: Great Scott
Date: 17 Feb 18
Points: 750
Mission: Demolition
Mission Result: Stalin smiles (Win), Destroyed Scott's objective while preserving my own
Units destroyed: 1 to 2:
  Destroyed Scott's smaller tricked out squad of vets. Would have had a great shot at killing 2-3 more if the game had lasted one more turn. But I feel that one should place winning the scenario over fighting against the scoring system, which is what I would have been doing by trying to extend the game to bulk the killed-loss differential
   I lost my HQ. And because I took the objective on turn 3 and my flamethrower failed its 1st reserve roll I understand it to count as lost as well. Still, I feel going for the scenario win outweighs worrying about kill ratio.

Overall Result - Again, won the scenario but drew on kill points. I probably did not actually kill that many more points than I lost. Although, given one more turn I would have been nearly certain to bag Scott's enormous and super tricked out squad (probably 200+ pts on its own) and maybe one of the half-tracks and HQ in return for a decent chance he gets my PTRD and maybe the damaged SMG squad.

MVP votes - We did not discuss this, but my vote would probably go to the T-34 for how much it terrified Scott's half-tracks and for the havoc it wreaked on the squad I killed. Hitting with the HE 2 turns in a row played a big part in dealing with them (maybe next time I will remember to roll for all the hits under the template, too!)

Logistics - Qualify for both.

I finally got the brass 40mm rods in.  So now I should be all set for ADG.
