Map - Langres
Length - 55 minutes 24 seconds
Players Brayalex (Whermacht Defensive Doctrine) vs R0hypnol (American Infantry Doctrine)
It was time to prove my American game had some worth and it wasnt all about Piospam. I had a bad start and things werent looking my way. Being a map I find axis dominant I was always going to have trouble. I didnt play aggressively enough and what was really causing me trouble was the one MG squad supported by volks. This thing locked down so much of the map. After forcing a retreat on brays volks squads I tried a massive flank with my entire force of five rifle squads and three flamer engineers and somehow despite splitting them up the one MG crew suppressed the lot of them and caused some major casualties. This was a depleting fail and Brayalex saying i had "no skill mate" wasnt helpful. Some would have given up at this stage but I carried on. I wanted the round and didnt want to resort to piospam for a third round.
I pumped out a T17 at the 11 minute mark and seen it go down to fraust within seconds :/ But it did its job forcing the MG to retreat and I was able to get some massive flanks in and destablise the centre of the map from lockdown. I circled volks and a newly built mortar crew. Unfortunately after dishing out alot of casualties I find medic crews picking them up
The match went on for over 55 minutes and it became a slog fest! with the score at one stage reaching 32 tickets each. The closest and best game Ive ever played or seen IMO.
