Round 5; 405 Halle - Morning (17 October 1806)
Prussian: Darth Ben, 4 Banners won, 18 blocks lost
French: toddrew, 5 Banners won, 27 blocks lost

French got their Cavalry in position to respond to the Prussian Cavalry attack, but in doing so had their hand go dry, and had to use Bayonet Charge instead. Looked grim after whiffing on the first roll and only getting one hit on the pinned cavalry unit before lucking out with 2 hits on 3d from an LT. If that roll had failed, likely a 5-0 victory for the Prussians, who were up three banners to none at that point.

As the final block count summarizes, the French were in shambles, but able to regroup some through La Grande Manoeuvre. The Prussians' next turn had a chance to end the game, using a Bayonet Charge of their own, but rather than risk poor position in the chance of getting three hits on 4d for the win, only took one banner and went for position in the center. This brief repose allowed the French to worm their way back into the game - a Cavalry Charge allowed one French LC to take out a 1 block Prussian Heavy Cavalry, and then finally remove the hill entrenched Horse Artillery with 2 hits in 4d.

Knotted at 4 banners, the Prussians attempted to get a full strength LT hiding in the forest deep behind the French lines to pick off one of the weakened French infantry units. Before that attack could be made, the aforementioned French LC attempted to either roost out the Prussian LT or force a square. The Prussians wisely stood, and the 2d from the LC whiffed - though fortunately only received one hit on the battle back. The next turn, the Prussian LT remained in the trees and attacked the 3 block LC in order to either force a retire, or hope to take it with 4d. The French stood, and took two hits, but more importantly were able to remain in position, to allow the Bayonet Charge to pin the Prussian LT. With 8d available to attack, the LT succumbed in 6 and the game ended there.

I can't speak for the Prussian Commander, but I do know that the French played the entire game with fear of a First Strike (or two!) which never came.

Apologies for not getting this posted sooner, and now posting it without the log file - I'll get that added to this post later today (file added)

Round 3 410 Waren-Nossentin (1 November 1806) Waren

Darth Ben/Armadeus (Prussian) 0 Banners, 12 blocks lost
Michalxo (French) 4 Banners, 3 blocks lost

Commentary
One of the worst scenarios I have ever played. Got Cavalry charge and Counter attack as French player. Game ended on second turn, when I played counter attack on Ben's Cavalry charge. And I got luckier in rolls.

I really really would like to see an errata for Prussian scenarios. This is nonsense.
Is it really a way to show how Prussians were ridiculous on battlefield? :-(
I am hoping for some official expression on the low quality of Prussian scenarios. I am hoping for your support as well guys...

Thank you and sorry Ben for not enjoying the game. Again. As Prussian...

PS: Again I am not able to attach a vlog. :(
Any Firefox fix soon? Maybe?

410 Waren-Nossentin (1 November 1806) Waren

this scenario wins the prize as the worst scenario of MT12.
Not only all French wins, but four 4-0 results, and best Prussian result was 2 banners.

oddly enough, it is rated 40-60 out of 5 results.

Sadly you can´t prevent joke reports and also solo reports. Both kinds are useless
and not representative :angry:

My dice are the hell!

well I know for sure one of the Prussian wins was mine, with a remarkable display of poor French dice letting the Prussian HC deal out some damage, and then escape.
I can't really imagine jokers recording a single result.
