Plenty of great players and Heart Breaks. I quit smoking the week before the Bears slaughter that was tough! On the plus side, I quit smoking 30 years ago! How about to be  buffalo fan and lose 4 SBS in a row!

Good point... I hated Elway with a passion prissly bastard that he was/is. Was delighted to see him fall apart.

Course I dont have allot to crow about either. Been a Steelers fan since the days of the Iron Curtain.

You should give it a try, Ray. You can take a brigade. Lots of fun and a very relaxed group to play with.

It was indeed a bloodbath!

I am looking forward to Asids AAR. My last battalion charged the last battalion on our right & both units were routed. Then I was squirming around in my seat & kicked the LAN cable out of the socket losing my connection & dumping me from the game so I did not see the last 3min or so of it or the final score.

From my perspective of the battle things were going really well. I was anchored on LeBeof's right as we pushed forward hammering the Brits. They kept falling back ceding us ground. Then their horse came out & mostly fixed me in place preventing my ability to maneuver. At this point the Brits had lost 2 men for every one of mine that had fallen. My score was around 800 I believe. Then the tide of the war changed. I had been moving 2 battalions in a kind of bounding overwatch. One would square up while the other moved. It was working well till the cavalry hit one of my battalions on its bound & the results were catastrophic. I lost 270 some odd men in that charge for the loss of 30 or so of his horse. After that the horse was apparently forgotten because it fell back & did not harass me again. I was able to reform my troops & continue the attack. At this point we began to push around the side of the fort in a sort of a sweep round the side of it. I got a courier from General LeBeof asking how things were going & I advised him that the tide was turning on the right & that my loses were mounting. No longer was I at the 2-1 ratio. I was losing troops faster then the brits!
LeBeof suggested I join him but I was unable to disengage. As I tried to pull back the Brits would push harder fixing me in place. I then looked to my left & saw an empty orchard. LeBeof's troops had been routed & I stood alone. Whats worse because of the terrain (down a small slope & then an orchard in the way) I had no clue what was going on to my left. I decided to try to save what was left of my forces so I sent a courier to General Asid advising that my Brigade was no longer combat effective & we were quitting the field. I signaled a retreat with some 800 soldiers left of my original 4600.
Amazingly enough as we pulled back & I cleared the orchard there was NO ONE there! The field was full of bodies (I took some screen shots & will post them later). All that was still on the field was our cannon pounding away & a single battalion of brits. The last vestiges of my Brigade formed up & marched towards them as they marched towards us. As they started to form up into battle line I charged them breaking their line but then both battalions routed. I was pulling back towards our cannon when I kicked the LAN cable.

I really enjoyed that battle, the FOW was awesome! The uncertainty & doubt was delicious! I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat leaned forward with my nose nearly touching the screen for quite awhile & I blame that for the fidgeting that caused me to kick the LAN cable LOL

Right before that I think my score was around 325.

It was allot of fun though & I am looking forward to the next one.
