Weekly round-up
A victory for sunnyboy (Lydian) this week keeps his slim hopes of winning Division A alive, and he now needs 3 decisive wins from his last 3 matches to prevent ianiow (Arab) completing a treble of championship wins in this tournament section. In Division B a defeat for markwatson360 (Median) means that Ulysisgrunt (Cypriot) has won automatic promotion to the top flight next season. At the bottom Barrold713 (Boiotian League) has completely ruined his chances of winning another wooden spoon by defeating markwatson360 in that match. gamercb (Achaemenid Persian is now the wooden spoonist despite winning 2 of his last 3 matches. I was also going to make a very poor joke about Boiotian being Greek for "bottom of the" (league) but Barrold713 has ruined that as well! :lol:

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
garymann (Division B) 4 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 41 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 40 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are very good match completion rates.

Player of the week
No-one this week.

Ulysisgrunt has won Biblical Division B!

Post by stockwellpete » Sun Dec 01, 2019 11:47 am

You can't keep a good man down! After featuring in Division A of Classical Antiquity in Seasons 4 and 5, Ulysisgrunt will play in the top flight in Biblical next season after winning 8 out of his 9 matches with his Cypriot army. He has also won himself a prize voucher as no-one in either division can now reach 30 points. Well played Ulysisgrunt. :D

Division D for Determined

Barrold713 (Palmyran) defeats Ulysisgrunt (Roman) 46-15

This might be my first ever win against UG so I might enjoy it a bit. After my initial plan of a defensive position did not pan out, I went on the offense and saw an opportunity to concentrate my legions and massed archers against medium foot and raw on my right while half my cataphracts and cavalry did their best to hold my left. The attack was quite successful and allowed me to clear my right and roll up enough points for the win. Thanks to Ulysisgrunt again for the excellent match and enjoyable competition.

Division A

Geffalrus (Antigonids) defeats MikeC_81 (Romans and Greeks) 42-12

For context, I learned how to play FoG2 a year(?) or so ago by watching Mike's youtube video where he dismantled a Seleucid pike player with his Roman army. So I was just massively nervous the whole time.

Anyway, the map featured a small stream bisecting the map with a big patch of rough ground in the center and some decent hills on my right/his left flank. Not exactly ideal pike ground if I just AFK marched forward to contact. My initial plan was to screen my left with some cavalry, screen the center with my thureos, and then mass my pikes and lancers on the right flank to quickly cross the stream and seize the hill on his side. Mike had basically the same exact plan, mirrored. This meant that Mike's Romans started on a hill and I'd have to fight up a hill AND over a stream, so that was a no-go. Plus he had a larger force of skirmishers, so a shootout wasn't necessarily a great idea. So my pikes did a hard left turn and everyone marched to the other flank to see if I could pick a fight in a more advantageous situation. Initially, I hoped to use my cavalry to lure some of his mediums out of the rough patch and then catch them with my pikes while his cohorts would have to march a longer route around the rough ground. However, when his cohorts ventured onto the open ground on my side of the stream, I scrapped that plan and turned around again, hoping that I could engage his cohorts before they could backup to the stream. Some of the cohorts withdrew to the stream, but enough were engaged in the open for me to start winning some fights. My cavalry on the left spent their time riding around eating arrows aka "distracting" some of Mike's units, but not much else to be honest. I got the better of the medium melee on the rough ground thanks to the untimely death of Mike's nearby general and some bad cohesion rolls. An elephant charge that I thought for sure would roll up all my thureos ended up pursuing off into the wild blue yonder.

The battle was ultimately decided by the heavy infantry contest on my right where my pikes successfully chewed through the less-scary hastati. The Veteran Hastati reserve came in like a wrecking ball, flanking a veteran pike and double dropping another pike on impact. However, thanks to some timely routs and rallies, I crossed the 25% threshold and my fragmented pikes lived to see another day.

Thank you Mike for the game, and thank you Pete for keeping everything running. That's it for me in the Classical division.

Final positions. Stream, rough ground, and initial Roman hill all visible.
