Re: Classiest example of ASL etiquette

David Goldman is among the classiest in the hobby. The fact that he
remembered the self rally incident after a gut wrenching loss to an
improbable CH on my last shot to win the game is testimony itself.

For the record, I believe that in a tournament (certainly at the
quarterfinal level or higher) if one player wants to use the same set of
dice, both players should do so. Some people's "don't touch my lucky
dice" may actually have dice that are unfair. Whether intentional or
not, it's not cool. If both players use the same dice, there's never any
question of dice fairness. Having said that, at this point in my ASL
"career", I don't care much on this issue anymore...

Re: Final Protective Fire: Threat or Menace?

> >How often do you final protective fire?

Depends.

1) Is it the guy's last unit that is moving and can then come into CC with 
an advantage to hold me up in Melee?  if he has more units to move and they 
could move farther or break my rout path if I'm broken, then I won't even 
consider FPF.

2) What is my unit's morale.  If it is a 6 I won't FPF.  If it's an 8 then 
there is a greater chance.

3) Is the unit giving me a -2 shot or is it moving adjacent in a Stone 
Building and giving me a +2 shot.  I don't like the trade off of a 4 FP +2 
where I'm taking a morale check.

From now on I will only put leaders at the bottom of stacks, I promise, because it is absolutely crazy to get worked up over


>If I asked you to [stack differently], would you do it, out of
>"respect" or for any other reason?

Yes I would. When I have social interaction (not just ASL) with a
person, I try to be considerate of their desires up to a reasonable
point. Is changing stacking a reasonable point? If it is important
enough for someone to ask, then yes. 

Note that I have NEVER said I would ask that of an opponent.

>If I want to know what's in a
>stack I'll ask.  If you want to know, same applies.

I have NEVER said anything different.

Here are some of the things I did NOT say:

  o Stacking leaders at the bottom is reprehensible
  o Stacking leaders at the bottom is illegal
  o I will ask someone to stack leaders at the top when we play
  o I have to have leaders stacked at the top because I HAVE
    to know where all my opponents leaders are.

Here is what I did say:
  o Stacking leaders at the bottom is a SILENT (meaning I do not
    talk about it and now regret that I ever did) pet peeve
  o I think it is a little cheesy (yet I still have NEVER mentioned
    it to any of my many opponents that do it)
  o Not wanting to know where your opponent's leaders are is idiotic

Re: ASLisms - I'm anal, sue me!

Robert Wolkey posted a list of his ASLismss, thus fairly warning anybody who
plays against him of his horrible idiosyncracies.

One ASLism I discovered recently, which Robert thankfully does not possess,
are those people who think that snipers have to be aligned with the "1"
pointing towards the "top" of a hexrow (i.e., pointing towards A1 or C1 or
X1 or AA1, etc.).  I have even run into people who insist on re-orienting
*my* sniper (at which point they are quickly disabused of the notion that
they can do so).

Re: From now on I will only put leaders at the bottom of stacks, I promise, because it is absolutely crazy to get worked up over


Personally, I put my leaders at the top because I want to know at a glance
where the hell they are at. Play Red Barricades a lot and you wont hide them
at the bottom or you will spend most of your game time searching for
leaders.

Its easy to remember when you only have 3 or so leaders in a small scenario,
but when you have a dozen or more leaders mixed in with 60 squads in RB, you
want to see them.

Some of you guys ARE anal

I use a dice glass because it is more convenient.  I like towers, too.  I do
not mind using separate sets of dice or sharing -my- dice but only want to
use yours if they are aesthetically pleasing. I do not mind sharing
towers/cups or not, as long as the DR is easy to see and quick to
accomplish, but generally prefer to have my dice receptacle on my right .

I prefer everyone's leaders on top after set up, but I can live with a quirk
or two in my opponent.

I am a sloppy player and don't care which way the counters are facing (other
than CA issues), but I only really -try- to keep things messier against
Youse, cause I know it drives him nuts.

Overlay placement is important and wreck facing is not completely
inconsequential, but neither is anything to get worked up about.

I realize there is no "rule" that requires this, but "by convention"
this is the way all players I've played have oriented their sniper. I'll
point this out to an opponent, if I think he's unaware of the
convention. And yes, I orient my sniper that way. 

Having been warned, I will not attempt to orient Mark's sniper. 

Till he leaves the table for a break.
