Division B

rexhurley (Numidian/Moors) defeats devoncop (Antiginod) 42/17. Tough game and the wily Greek knew not to hide in the open so withdrew to a wood in a far corner and hunkered the pikes down in squares. it almost worked as I didn't have the room to work in I needed however finally after 7 turns of heroic resistance the medium infantry snapped causing a cascade across 4 units giving me the win. Thank you for battling to the end Ian you almost got the draw
Sounds like Rorke's Drift :shock:

Group 3

oscarius (Pyrrhus 280-272 BC) beats dkalenda (Carthaginian 280-263 BC) as no turn has been submitted in seven days with no explanation

EDIT: scratch that, we decided to give dkalenda some extra grace time on the organiser's advice and he has made his way back to us.

Division C

Sunnyboy (Jewish 167-164 BC) beat DzonVejn (Indian 500 BC-319 AD) 62-42

Another hard slog, the righteous fury of the Jewish army crashed head on into a storm of arrows and rampaging (as well as rallying) pachyderms. Despite inflicting heavy casualties on the advancing Jewish host, the Indian bowman were no match for the zealots when contact was made.

Thanks for the game!

You too?!?!? I don't know what Dzon feeds his elephants, but they rally from routing faster than my pikes can break them. Loading every turn is to be assaulted by a riotous cacophony of rally horns. :lol:

Re: Poll on new "Allies" feature

Post by sunnyboy » Sat Jun 15, 2019 2:34 am

Not sold on the ally option myself for the league, potential to have several quite similar armies in each division. Currently in Early Middle Ages B we have two armies with Viking allies, a Viking army and a Rus army. With the potential for Viking allies on a number of other army lists.

I see the limiting of selection to one army per nation as a strength of the league. It provides a degree of variety and complexity to the competition. I find it both challenging and rewarding to deal with a mismatch that favours your opponent.

The poll indicates the ally option is overwhelmingly popular, one suggestion would be to provide a similar limit on allies from a single nation as exists currently for army selection.

Actually, thats a good point. Perhaps an army taking allies can be handicapped by a number of points to make up for the added flexibility. Thus people may need to consider if that flexibility is worth it.
Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too. M.A.

Despite the traditional "run for the hills" approach of the Dailami once their arrows run out and things go pear shaped for their medium infantry the Andalucian Cavalry and supermen combined in the last couple of turns remaining to catch some Dailami stragglers.

Well played to my opponent and my truly appalling record against archer heavy armies continues unabated 😱

I think one ally for the whole tournament is the way to do it as is the case now.

There is sufficient flexibility already in my view.

I have a concern that limiting allies to those different from the main force would be somewhat arbitrary . Yes some players have taken Vikings with Irish Viking allies which is powerful in the open but they are taking a big risk of they get dealt a mountainous hilly map.

Yes, that would be possible to do,

No, I definitely do not want to go in that direction. How would you decide how many points to deduct for a particular ally?

Re: Banter in the results threads . . .

Post by stockwellpete » Sat Jun 15, 2019 8:39 am

Two other things have happened with regards banter since my original post on the subject. Firstly, one player has put 2 screenshots up, which is taking up an enormous amount of space. As a moderator I am able to edit posts but it is not possible for me to remove the second screenshot without also removing the first one. So please just stick to one screenshot please. Secondly, a losing player has posted a screenshot of his match so now there are 2 posts about the same match. I cannot have that I'm afraid as it messes up my counting as I scan up and down threads to make sure that I have got the tables right. So those sort of posts will disappear after 3 days or so.

dkalenda is back and killing Romans!

Post by Cunningcairn » Sat Jun 15, 2019 9:15 am

Is anyone currently playing dkalenda? If so please inform him he is close to forfeiting a game. He appears to have had forgotten he's playing me and is going to go over the 7 day period of no play. Dkalenda if you are out there I will give you another day to play or I will claim the game.

Cheers
Martin
