Pool A Group 2 klayeckles (lydian) defeats GDod (persians) 67 to 40 and klayeckles(persian) defeats GDod (lydian) 60 to 58 (3-1) two outstanding battles where the (now) fragile as eggs persians began both battles with a big edge as their vicious missile attacks rained death on the lydians. As the ly...

Re: ConstantinIX has won Late Antiquity Division A!

Well played! It was a pleasure to lose to you. I agree with the "well done" part....my own ego won't allow me to say it was a pleasure :oops: I definitely learned something too...you used the interchangeability of the lancers to great effect, as well as the 50% bow on your cav. that is an army to b...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

They spanned the whole of June, and were FOG2DL games. Ok thanks. I asked because I had noticed a strange pattern when playing mirrored games against dkalenda: when I logged into multiplayer I would often find one of the pair of games submitted and back to being my turn to move, but the other game ...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion, questions and some highbrow philosophising)

I think it depends on the matchup of both players and factions. I tend to play rather defensively against people who usually beat me; not that it saved me against Nosy_Rat or Ludendorf or pantherboy! But I think I did better than I would have with an offensive strategy. I even went so far as to cam...

Re: Advice on cavalry tactics?

Just a quick note on "wide and deep". Yes, the idea is good but I see quite a lot of new players and not so new players just push out their cavalry so wide for elaborate flanking manoeuvres that never get going because the battle is over in the middle.. cavalry gets blocked or just takes too long t...

Re: Advice on cavalry tactics?

one of the most important "tactics" involving cav that many gamers fail to utilize involves Threat. sure cav can manouver...sure they can get a local outflank. but even if you don't have an overwhelming cav force...if you can manouver and KEEP manouvering to get to the rear your cav become much more...
