I have also double checked the Brazilian list from Ireland, if this one is the latest PDF of the list (http://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=209
) then the only diference with the team Ireland list is on the INTELLIGENCE & RECON PLATOON which has a new format (50 cal recon jeep plus three recon jeeps, no infantry) and cost 105 points instead of 65 points.
The problem is that this PDF has wrong points on this unit since it should cost actually 65 points (like other equivalent CT American unit)... so my propossal is either leave the submitted list as it currently is or put a note on easy army pointing out the new format of the unit but not changing the list neither the points.
What those the Irish captain think about the issue?
Ok, I've tried to remain out of this thread long enough and let nature take it's course. But as I've been specifically requested to reply, I will do so.
I'm playing the Brazilian list. It's a list I created long ago (back in the days of Easy Army) and it just so happened to be the same points total as the ETC this year. As has been noted on here several times, Easy Army didn't throw up any error with regards to the points costing of the Recce Jeep platoon. But yes, when it was brought to my attention recently, the PDF does indeed have a different points listing to what Easy Army does. That's my fault entirely. I made the assumption that Easy Army was correct when I first created the list (possibly a few years ago).
There is another problem with the list however. And this may be where my own honesty gets me into trouble. But what the hell!
Easy Army only had two compulsory infantry platoons. I see now, having pored over the PDF in fine detail the last couple of days, that the PDF requires three!!! So another mistake, because of my assumption of Easy Army being correct a few years ago. This is something that no one on this forum has spotted up to now.
So what to do? I have a proposal, which you all can discuss the merits of. If I was to change my list, making minimal changes and trying to keep it as similar to that which I submitted last week, and most importantly making it legal, I would swop out the Recce Jeep (65 points, mistakenly, should be 105 points) for a Recce Cavalry platoon (70 points), take all transports from all gun and artillery platoons (3 x 5 points), and change the two max infantry platoons (2 x 140 points) for three short infantry platoons (3 x 100 points). That makes the list legal and ties it in with the PDF. The only consequence this has is that it brings the list up from 10 platoons to 11 platoons. Alternatively, and I've no problems doing this either, I could play the illegal list that I submitted, as has been suggested by Sovietpride above. If anyone sees that as unfairly benefiting me or my team, I've no problem with changing my list as per my first suggestion either. I'm totally fine with either route.
I hope that you will believe that my intention was never to submit an illegal list knowingly. This was an error of assumption that an Easy Army list that I created a long time ago was correct. Apologies for the hassle this has caused the ETC community.
PS. Jonny and all the Northern Ireland guys - sorry also for playing an illegal list at your recent tournaments.
