Division A

Triarii (Carthaginian - Hannibal in Italy) defeats youngr (Italian Hill Tribes) 43-6

To paraphrase youngr this time 'a battle where quantity were unlucky to be beaten to the hills and quality could prevail'.

Division A

harveylh – Syracusan 280-211 BC with Carthaginian 235-146 BC ally defeats MikeC_81 - Roman 199-106 BC with Greek 227 BC ally, 62-38.

On a fairly open battlefield, the Carthaginian ally cavalry played havoc with the Roman flanks. In the climax of the battle, a lone Syracusan veteran hoplite held off for several turns both a Roman veteran legionnaire and Greek regular phalanx. The hoplite veteran unit passed repeated cohesion checks at bad odds and was the key to the win.

I could have used some of that luck in my game with Geffalrus. :)

Division B

oscarius (Thracian) beat lydianed (Samnite) 60 - 49

With the evening dark beginning to set in (three turns left!) the victorious Thracians reflected upon the day's fighting. Their foe had been cautious, not budging from his ground even as our superiority in skirmishers saw his cavalry get chewed up under stationary fire. Knowing our lancers and pikes to be the only element in our force that could take upon the fiercesome Samnite infantry head-on we were not overly eager to initiate the melee either. Despite a very promising start with our cavalry and skirmishers having the better of things and our pikes making mincmeat of the Samnite's Celtic friends disaster loomed as a sole Samnite cavalry unit (severely understrength and on the verge of auto-collapse from skirmisher fire but not yet fragmented) snuck behind our lines and almost routed our entire pike line. We slowly re-gained momentum however (rallies were on our side too) and eventually won the day by chasing a fragmented enemy javelin unit off the map (a damn good thing too as the rest of the Samnite forces were securely parked on medium ground in the sensible hopes of waiting out a tie). Thanks for the game

General Shapur - Arab (Conquest) 629-637 AD defeats edb1815 - Rus 960-1053 AD with Bulgar ally 61:45

A closer game than the score tells, well played.
Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too. M.A.

Division C

fikabo(jewish with Romans) beat batesmotel (Romans) 48:21

The terrain was symmetrical.
River in the middle, hills on both sides of the river (a little longer on my side).

Both armies stood by their hills and none of them paid to attack.
It was beneficial to my army, which had weaker heavy units but much more skirmishes.
The fights took place only on the wings and when my skirmishes felt strong enough (or stupid) in the river that they did not evade.
The battle was won by my skirmishes which shots weakened a lot of units and an elephant which almost alone destroyed 3 good enemy units on the right wing and disrupted another one.

This game was most lucky in tournament for me:
my opponent lost two generals (including one during the charge on my yawellin),
at the beginning of the game one his horse evaded behind the board and did not return to the end of the game.
The elephant was finishing the next units exactly before he was threatened with a flank attack and was successfully fighting with 2 strong units at the same time.

Thanks for the game.

Thanks all! It was a fun and interesting collection of battles with great opponents. Some of whom I'd played against before, and some I had not. Definitely looking forward to next season's lineup. :D

Division A

harveylh – Khorasanian 821-1003 AD with Arab (Abbasid) 815-835 AD ally defeats MikeC_81 - Viking (Ireland) 780AD with Scots-Irish ally, 52-41.

The Vikings resigned since it appeared the Arabs would win but would require many more turns. A tough game where the battlefield had enough woods to keep the Arab lancers from being a major factor. The heroes were the Arab bowmen on a hill that weakened and disrupted enough Viking spearmen to be the difference. The huscarls almost turned the tide at the end.
