Weekly round-up
Division A has turned into a bit of a procession now after dkalenda (Palmyran) registered his seventh straight win this week. It is still mathematically possible for him to be overtaken by Nosy_Rat (Hunnic), or even ninth-placed nyczar (Ancient Briish), but it seems very unlikely that this will happen. It is more likely that Snugglebunnies (Jewish Revolt), who has finished his matches with 23 points, will still be holding on to his current second place at the end of the season. It is not yet a procession in Division B where XLegione (Arab City) has made a blistering start with 6 straight victories. paulmcneil (Ancient British) may yet pose a danger after winning his first 3 matches, but it is hard to see anyone else challenging for the promotion place. By way of complete contrast, Division C is still very much wide open. The top two, oscarius (Roman) and desertedfox (Indian) both have 4 wins but have very few matches remaining, whereas Najanaja (Roman) is probably in the best position right now with 3 wins from 4 starts. Division D is moving very slowly and MikeMarchant (Ancient British) is the current front-runner with 4 straight wins.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
dkalenda (Division A) 7 matches
Snugglebunnies (Division A) 4 matches and finished
paulmcneil (Division B) 3 matches
XLegione (Division B) 6 matches
oscarius (Division C) 3 matches
MikeMarchant (Division D) 4 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 25 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 18 out of 45 matches completed :|
Division C - 23 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 15 out of 45 matches completed :cry:

Division A and Division C have good match completion rates, but Division D is very slow.

Player of the week
dkalenda (Division A) with 3 wins this week. :D

Weekly round-up
A very exciting situation is developing in Division A where CheAhn (Arab Conquest) still leads, but the gap is being closed by Snugglebunnies (Anglo-Saxon) and Nosy_Rat (Abbasid) with harveylh (Khorasanian) also looking very dangerous in fifth place with 4 straight wins. At the bottom MikeC_81 (Viking Ireland) has posted his first win to leave Cunningcairn (Byzantine) in the automatic relegation place. In Division B rbodleyscott (also Arab Conquest) secured his fifth win in 7 matches to extend his lead to 14 points over second-placed Geffalrus Polish), who has 2 wins from 2 starts. fikabo (Polish) moved up into third place in Division C with 2 wins this week and is now chasing front runner GDod (Arab Conquest) and second-placed oscarius (Rus) in what is developing into an exciting competition for the promotion place. In Division D Schweetness101's (Abbasid) lead has been cut to 9 points although Questar17 (Pictish) remains his greatest danger with 2 wins from 2 starts.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
harveylh (Division A) 4 matches
Nosy_Rat (Division A) 4 matches
fikabo (Division C) 3 matches
gamercb (Division D) 4 matches
Schweetness101 (Division D) 3 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 28 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 18 out of 45 matches completed :|
Division C - 22 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 22 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are generally good match completion rates.

Player of the week
rbodleyscott (Division B) and fikabo (Division C) with 2 wins apiece this week. :D

Division D

Bluefin (Alan) edges SawyerK (Pictish) 51-44 in a spirited match that ultimately ended in draw. I think we used every square in the battlefield as the battle continually shifted. Very fun!

Thanks for the game SawyerK

Weekly round-up
desertedfox (Egyptian) is the new leader in Division A after securing 2 victories this week in his first season at Division A level. He still faces strong challenges from harveylh (Kyrenean Greek) and the unbeaten sunnyboy (Lydian) in order to win the championship. The previous winner in the last 2 seasons, ianiow (Arab) suffered two narrow defeats this week to leave his quest for a treble looking decidedly shaky now. Just a couple of drawn matches in Division B this week which means Ulysisgrunt (Cypriot) is still looking favourite to win automatic promotion to an A division for the second time in recent seasons.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
desertedfox (Division A) 3 matches
sunnyboy (Division A) 3 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 28 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 17 out of 45 matches completed :D

Division A has excellent match completion while Division B is a little bit slow.

Player of the week
desertedfox (Division A) with 2 wins this week to go top of the table in his first season in the top flight. :D

Div B

Nijis (Byzantine 963-987 AD) defeats IMC (Viking 780-899 AD with Frankish ally) 62 to 39.

Great asymmetrical clash between cavalry- and infantry-heavy armies on a mostly open plain. The Byzantines broke the western horse on the right flank and fell back before the advancing heavy foot on the left, but eventually the spears caught up with them and mauled the cavalry. The battle hung in the balance for a few turns, but the Byzantines' mobility allowed them to prevail once the battle lines had dissolved into scattered fights.

Division D

I don't know whether to report a win or a draw. My battle with Bluefin timed out, but the game reported a victory for me.

The scores were: 55/38. I had 10 warband, a couple of legionary units and a chariot left, while Bluefin had 5 cavalry asnd 2 light horse. I just couldn't catch him to finish him off.

I think the rules say a game that times out is a draw, and I'm happy with that - it was an epoc battle, and many thanks to Bluefin for it.


Best Wishes

Mike

Division B

MikeMarchant (Elamite 815-539 BCE - Allies: Babylonian) defeated garymann (Arab 1000-313 BC1-1111) 61/38

A bright start by the Arab camels on my left flank (lots and lots of them) who seemed to disrupt everythign they spat at. A combination of tenacious chariots and obstinate cavalry eventually put them to flight collapsing the Arab right wing. The centre was dominated by Elamite infantry and cavarly, with support from heavy chariots and more light chariots, in a race for time as my right flank rapidly folded. The Arab centre, with help from troops flanking from my left crumbled dramatically, leaving me watching the Arab forces on my right flank hesitate and then join the general rout.

Great game, Gary, and bad luck. Look forward to our next.


Best Wishes

Division C

fikabo(Polish with Vikings) defeated GDod (Arab Conquest) 59:34

There were two hills, one on the right closer to me and the other on the left closer to GDod.
I planned to walk around the Arab hill with the main forces from behind. The rest, including many massed archers, would defend my hills.
I stupidly placed 3 light archers alone in the woods at Arab Hill and lost them.
Then clever gambit with the Arab skirmish forced me to attack at the enemy's hills.
Although at the moment I was slightly winning (about 5%) I felt that I would lose because the fight against the superior spearman attacking from hill did not bode well.
By sacrificing the general (moving him to the attacked unit), I managed to delay the disintegration of my units until the hill had been surrounded by my main forces.
An operation could go wrong but the cavalry in the woods blocked the reinforcment.

In fact, it's hard for me to say why I have won. Arabs was well commanded and this army is really very good (not in rough terrain).
I must have had some good luck in the hill battles and maybe the massed archers fire did its job.
Very interesting game.

Division A

Triarii (Carthage in Italy with Samnite allies) beat Cunningcairn (Ptolemaic with Roman Ally) 62-42

Good tough game and very close to the end - the Carthaginian cavalry struggled around a contested hill and onto the Pergamene flank before pikes and legions saw off all the Carthaginian MI.
