It’s July 25 1944, the 83th Infantry Division “Ohio”, tried to pushed through a bocage area held by a few SS squads and some REALLY good guns. They are to push from the green dotted line to the red dotted line with 37VPs (minus German CVPs) in 7.5 turns. The action came hot & heavy on Turn 1 where all German HIP units (apart from the Raketenwefer were revealed and the “Ohio” lost 3 out of 8 AFVs ..
You are going to see a lot of bocage country. We are going to play the whole of BFP Operation Cobra front to back. We already did BFP14 Opening Phase, so this is the second one ..
This is nothing that is as sophisticated as the title might suggest. It’s just that I got a free trial to a data visualisation software called “Tableau”, so what better data to play on it with than ASL data?
1944 wins out. We got a couple of ETO scenarios at around 1919!
We clearly have a lot more Western post-Normandy scenarios. “MTO” is the Mediterranean, in case you are wondering, this theater comes in 3rd in front of PTO.
The tall blue line is of course Avalon Hill / MMP. What caught my also is the very long (light blue) lead that Le Franc Tireur (LFT) has early in time. We are probably talking about their Russian Revolution scenarios here. The red line running along LFT is Dispatches from the Bunker (DB) and the orange Bounding Fire Productions (BFP).
No surprises here for the most part, but I didn’t know we have that many scenarios on events that took place in the Philippines!
The following are the Nationalities featured by different Publishers, ie get BFP if you want to play more Chinese OB, BFP & SP for more IJA (assuming that we all get core modules by default).
Finally I took the 100.000+ records we accumulated on ROAR and worked out the Percentage of Wins minus Losses per Nationality. (Get the IJA, don’t take the Canadians .. )
Again, I am a novice when it comes to the science of Data Analysis, so please take everything with a grain of salt. It certainly interests me though! I hope this is entertaining for you as well.
