Bah! Artillery has been the chief destroyer of man and material among ground weapons on battlefields since the beginning of the 19th C. Jeeps were a minor adjunct - if you want to talk pure ground mobility, then trucks have had much more of an impact than little 4x4s.

Jeeps don't live in this game with airpower either, Fully ran out of DH ammo pure and simple.

He lost the air. Without airpower and without either LT art, LT tanks, Hvy tanks, etc he was down to SRMB's for defense. While he didn't say, and I didn't ask I'd bet he ran out of ammo for them too (assuming he had them).

I've always bought ammunition and people in WG have always told me I'm nuts for having so much .. one time I remember hearing that right before that very same person started whining about running out of cruise missiles in an attack.

Unfortuntely I deregged those countries but if given enough time I will be back at status quo.

When I reach that point (which I never will as I was still buying ammo) you might take out my systems and capture my country but it won't be due to lack of ammunition. 1/2 of my purchases per month are in ammunition alone the one thing I have lost due to current war rules is the ability to take a C3 purely for it's weapon systems, those I have to pretty much destroy now.

Fully lost to an invasion of jeeps and there was only ONE reason for that which was out of his control and forced upon him by W3.

It had nothing to do with war rules and most of us are a long way from 60M pop so it's not a consideration. We all have flaws in our defense which a smart player can capitalize on.

We simply do not have the time, money or people to cover every single possiblity. That is the reason a strong offense is so very important in the defense of your country. Your offense is the only thing you can use to plug the hole when someone finds your weak spot.

Fully was out of position for offensive operations and ran out of ammunition .. end of story.

"Bah! Artillery has been the chief destroyer of man and material among ground weapons"

Still is unless your enemy is equipped with it also. There are a variety of factors of course but how far can you run in 3 min's carrying a 105 or 155 tube?

That's about how long artillery would survive from the first shot if there's anything in range available for counterbattery.

A battlefield has always been controlled by combined arms it's just the weapons themselves that have changed. But if your enemy has nothing to deal with what you inject into the fight .. it really doesn't matter what you use.

to set the record straight: A:the forts were always there, I didn't build any. I alerted Erehwon to this when I was sitting at 0.6 war index.I realized I was dead if he found them,so i transfered as much out of the country as I could.
B: I had lots of srmb and lots of ammo left. They didn't attck the tanks or the jeeps. I had hundreds of thousands of rounds of heli ammo.
Each attack of jeeps used thousands of rounds of heli missiles to repel.
C: The ridiculous aspect of the month-end lagging for between 7 and 8 hours meant my opponent could attck every 7 minutes , but I couldn't refresh my purchasing or transfers of ammo
D: Due to retro-active restrictions by W3 on large countries, F.Completely has not produced any llw for many months. I tried vainly to transfer down under the 60m pop limit, but as I was almost at 70m when the rules changed it took a long time to lower. As a result, all the off army and strat army was auto-destroyed by the game gods.
I was able to transfer enough workers from my slaves to save the majority of the defense.
E: I spent from 6:30 am when I logged on , 'til well after 3:00 pm fighting my enemy,with my war index at 5.0 when i started. I managed to transfer, move defences, and frankly guess where he would attack, to the point that I stymied him for 7 hours with my index at 0.6. I take exception to those who suggest I gave up
F: I was absent for several days and only found that I was under attack four real-time hours before the attack began. My war index was already at 71.0 and the war had not begun (due to sneak attacks I assume). As such I had no time to involve the resources of my empire, in fact my fleets never arrived at the war,able to fire, until the next day.
Kudos to my opponent.He played an old gambit very well,but all the bounces went in his favour,from my absence ,to the month-end lag, to my allies having to go to work, to the W3 tinkering with llw that destroyed any chance I had to survive.
He could not have had a more favourable set of circumstances

"C" was a condition I'd not really considered from a resupply stand-point, should have been a double edged sword though. Of course the arrival time of your fleets was effected also which was probably more of a factor.

And SRMB's don't attack tanks or jeeps .. don't know why I put that in.

The LLW deal sucks plain and simple

they should do though..according to the documentation they are an expensive protection, but effective

I think what he meant was whirrett just had too many tanks and artillley plus jeeps such that the amount destroyed by SBRm didn't make much difference.

So is it impossible to take over a country using sneak attacks? Because my war index when i had fully completely was kept at 0.0 because of sneak attacks and finally taken over today by all the countries that declared war on me (half the civilized world it seemed like). I wish i would have attacked closer to October so I would have gotten the award.

By the way I am Whirrett. It still says I'm Verheid because thats the country I registered for my final words on the forum....if Ian Stewart had been a jerk about everything I might have been tempted to transfer one of my crappy countries from kb on top of fully completely. Hehehe......that would have been pure evil. I know he must have worked hard on that country. When I clicked on the loans that people owe Fully Completely it took about 5 minutes just to load. It would have taken about a half hour just to scroll through all his debtors. Good luck with your country. I'm interested to see where Fully Completely will be after the award penalty.
