I am the only one to beat youngr so far and it wasn’t so easy.. it was one of his first games. We chatted and he didn’t at all think that he would win all those games. Incredible run really.. I also thought all the phalanx and elephant armies would be really tough for him! Well done!

Division B: oscarius (Roman 105-25BC) beats Morbio (Spanish, Sertorius 80-70BC) 53 - 28

Terrible luck in the Spainard centre allowed the Roman MF to quickly seize the middle while the legionary heavies pummeled the flanks and cavalry. Fun game though the die definitely fell in my favour.

A well deserved congratulations. I really underestimated that Samnite army and with some terrain I thought was favorable, I expected my dudes would prevail. Unfortunately youngr had other ideas and they proved superior.

I've been surprised by the efficiency of Samnites on the field, considering their lack of heavy troops. Under skilful hands, this army is really impressive. And I don't believe in luck: victory only goes to the ones who deserve it :D
I guess there will now be several players willing to try them next season (as far as I'm concerned, I'll try Seleucids again, they deserve better than what I've achieved with them this season- and I have some ideas to improve my results with this army - but obviously Samnites will be high in my selection !)

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Kushan) defeats ianiow (Indo-Skythians) 60-56

A very close match - I achieved 60% on the very last turn, through the luck of evasion and pursuit! It easily could have been a draw.

For the first half of the battle, ianiow led the way, at one point being 15-0 in his favor. He made excellent use of his Light Horse Archers to ride rings around my slower, formed up Cavalry Archers, shooting them to pieces and charging them in the flank after a cohesion drop. Gradually, the swirling melee on the flanks began to take shape; my cavalry largely fled the field, but my elephants supported by Massed Archers saw off his infantry and most of his elephants and cataphracts. Soon, a sort of standoff developed; all of my surviving troops attempted to make or fight their way to a large hill in the center of the map, while his light cavalry, now low on ammunition, attempted to intercept them. My elephants and cataphracts shrugged off the now sparse shafts flying their way, while my Massed Archers stood their ground on the hill, shooting in all directions at the horsemen under the cover of some Indian Javelinmen and elephants. This continued for some time. Finally, on the very last turn of the battle, a combined charge with all of my remaining elephants and cataphracts, with missile support from my three units of archers, caused just the right evade/pursuit/chain breaks to give me victory at 60-56.

The closest game I've played in a long time, and it so easily could have ended in a draw. Frankly, considering how the battle opened, I was looking forward with relief to nightfall bringing the battle to an end at a draw. Ianiow deserves credit for the great skill with which he handled his lights; lesson learned, next time I play such a match up, I will grab a few more of the pesky buggers, and rather less of the heavier, formed units of mounted archers.

Division D for Dogged

Barrold713 (Roman) barely defeats Herode_2 (Seleucids) 64-53

A nail-biter to the end as some seriously good rally rolls kept bringing Seleucids back into the fight but I managed to pull out the win with some timely flank attacks.

Thanks for the excellent match!

Wew ! I confirm : my Seleucids have been lucky on rally rolls on the last turns ! BTW, Barry and his Romans had to fight hard until the conclusion (at t-3 or t-2 or so, the last screen does not show the number of turns unfortunately)
That's the kind of defeats I love, a lot of fun for the looser :D
Thanks for the game, congrats !! and... see you later, I don't resign :mrgreen:
