'True Ground SR1' - Scenarios & OOBs

Post by Jolly »

I used to wrap an elastic band around my collection to take to school - they got a bit battered. You don't think of the future at that age! ;)

'True Ground SR1' - Scenarios & OOBs

Post by RebBugler »

I went hog-ass wild with my collection, spent every penny I earned for about two years on those cards, and literally hoarded them (avoided the trading card scene because of earlier baseball card trading inequities leading to bad experiences, IOW, I got ripped off). 

Managed to collect two entire sets, with lots more dupes, and they somehow survived several family moves between cities and states. Also I have an original retail box the packs were sold from, my pride and joy that I store the collection in.  Several decades ago I retrieved them from my folks attic in Virginia and they've been with me ever since. I know I could sell them for a nice profit now, according to ebay searches, but they're a part of me, and not just fleeting memories.

I visit them from time to time, not only are they a pleasure to behold, they give me bragging rights for hanging on to them for over 60 years now. Gotta credit my mom though, I inherited my hoarding compulsions from her, and without her attic, plus her hoarding skills, those cards would be long gone.

Still got my 1959-1961 baseball card collection too, but no complete sets.

And finally (for now), I just about managed a MV on GB3-11, despite the heavy losses.
My tactics were to attack the Reb left flank first, whilst bringing up the support into the center and right, and also attacking any Reb guns if possible to try and clear them out. They did some damage though!

Congrats, this is probably the toughest of the Union carryover finale series. And, you beat it the hard way, attacking the western flank first. I tried this also, once, and got soundly defeated. It's tough because it summons more Rebel troops into the fray once the western-most objective is achieved. Still, attacking from the east has its own challenges, like you said, because you have to endure longer pounding from the Rebel artillery.

Now you've opened the door to the Union grand finale. With all your Major Victories preceding this scenario, you should have no problem routing Lee's army. Just take it slow as I suggest on the Info page, otherwise the massive amount of troop numbers will mess with CPU performance, and potentially ruin your MV effort.

Good Luck General Jolly Image

Took me two days, but most of my attachments, (screenshots and descriptive battle pictures), are back now.
