LOS allowed my opponent to plot air strikes that set me back and I don't think I can recover. Particularly since it was pointed out the VP situation does not allow for more than a minor victory even if the allies lost no units at all.
That would be due to German scout units. I like those units and first time I played in a scenario with scouts.
I believe the scenario designer tried to capture the essence of the Battle of Arras (Allies counterattack and press the Germans, Rommel saves the day by utilizing 88's to stop the advance, Germans push back) but by the time the Allies get started in this one, they have taken heavy losses and the Germans are coming in like a wave.
Again, there is lots of potential but would ask your opponent to consider this as a test and report it as such. Definitely, not ready to be reported as a ladder game.
